NEW INTAKE MANIFOLD AND LIGHTENED FLYWEEL...

How much does this cost and what are good brands?
I have no idea I just saw it in a post and they said it would add like 90 horsepower. Sounds like a good upgrade to me.

To date, there is no aftermarket Intake manifold that you can buy that replaces the stock manifold; however, you can have it milled out for higher air flow. A machine shop will do that but there are controversies right now that some argue milling the Intake manifold will do no positives. I have yet to see a natural aspired celica with a milled Intake manifold. However if you keep reading you'll find out more information. I have more information about milling and port polishing but I doubt it is 100% accurate so I will not disclose this information.

Flywheels are available; however, Mike Lu has a lightened flywheel, maybe he could help you there. thumbsup

oh yeah your smart! ever hear of jg edelbrock? they make the victor x Intake manifold...
btw, 00snc- i think it was me who posted the thing about the 90 wheel horsepower (but i may be wrong b/c that what they claim)- but on the other hand maybe steven is talking about the fact that they dont make them for the celica, which i know
@ least one company that does, (forgot the site), but you coould try all these sites:
www.acautotechnic.com
www.jgedelbrock.com
and
www.converter.com

sorry if i make false claims but i hope i helped...
