There's a couple.

I know a guy from nc.org has it on his GTS.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

I own a GTS an turboing it isn't my dream. The 2zz wasn't designed for turbo much less any f/i.

Yes, Keyshawn over at newcelica.org has the XS kit on his car. You should PM him if you are curios about it, he is a pretty friendly guy, I'm sure he would answer any questions you have about it.

One thing that I do know is that he blew a transmission because of the extra power going through it. If I remember correctly, the people at the shop thought that it may have just been because his transmission was defective/weak from the factory, but at this point it's kind of up in the air...

best I've seen turboed is 13.2 with nitrous and mad traction issues. the other one I saw runs around 14.1 and since I've seen some N/A people hit better times I'm not too crazy bout the turbo yet myself. but it is hella sweet to ride in and hear pssssh lol so if I got one id be mostly for the coolness factor. never know they might improve the design!!

there are allot of them.

two of them are in DS*R(darkstar racing)

one ran a 13.2(JDM2ZZ) @110 mph with 50 shot for 3rd and 4th gear
horrible traction 2.4 60' and its at calispeedway--a known track that is famous for slower times 2-3 tenths slower to be exact.

another turbo (smaay) hes run a 14.1 at csw which corrected is mid-high 13's. Hes getting slicks and should be into the 12's at carlsbad.

there are several other turbo GTS's.

variable lift and high compression=bad for turbo. Our motors were meant to stay NA, IMHO.

peace
