Hey guys, new celica owner here!
Hey guys, I recently bought a 93 Celica about 3 weeks ago. I've been working on it ever since that time since it was having revving issues, which all came down to the Temp sensor malfunctioning. I replaced a few other parts too, like the O2 sensor the fuel economy was just terrible, and I also replaced the TPS and MAP sensor. The MAP sensor had a broken stem, don't know how I even got it home.

The engine is a 5S-FE, Ex. Calif. I want to make this car my primary, so I want to make improvements on everything. The interior, body and the engine itself. So, to start, I wanted to find out if you can turbo the 5S-FE engine? If so, would there be any parts I'd have to remove and if so, what parts? My budget for the engine is $1000

I'm thinking of adding a new amp, sub, and speakers. Which would be optimal? My budget is $500.

I also want to change the look of the whole interior, meaning the appearance of the dash, seats, steering wheel and so on. What should I look into for that? Budget is $500 too.

I definitely want to get a body kit for this car, including lights. The invader style body kit looks like its right up my ally. My budget for the body kit is $500.

What advice and tips do you guys have for me? I'll post pics of the car tomorrow. For now, you can have this one picture.

Thanks guys, this forum is very informative!

I was thinking of getting this KIT. The guy said there would need to be modifications and "fabrications" in order for it to fit. any ideas what those would be?
