Question about my 03 GT manual
I drive a 03 Celica GT. I use to love putting money into my cars to make them faster/ turning them into "sleepers." I am thinking of purchasing a brand new 2zz engine and 6spd manual trans for the 2zz to drop into my GT. I then want to slap a turbo kit on it. I am looking at the turbo kit from turbokits.com.
The real question I basically have is will it be possible. As in, not having to fabricate anything? Or will I be in luck that the GT and GTS have the same mounting brackets and what not?
Oh, and the turbo kit I'm looking at doesn't specify how much boost it puts out so I'm assuming it's from 3-8psi? In that case, I shouldn't need to rebuid the 2zz engine to handle the extra pressure, or will I?
Also, has anyone else done the SSBC conversion kit (rear drum to disc brakes)? I'm thinking of doing that as well since I can't stand seeing these "drums" on my car.
ps. I just found this site and really enjoyed viewing other peoples projects/cars. I use to be a mechanic for GM when I was younger and loved to mess around with my cars. I've since married and no longer have the money to do that anymore, but I was thinking of getting a new car... but instead think I should put the money back into my car since I love it. The new cars out there today lack what I want...which is basically a car like mine but with a turbo ;-).
