Mike Lu...
After the price of the celica much did it cost you engine wise to turbo your car with installation on everything? What all do you need to do to maintain the turbo and the upgrade the rest of the car? Thanks

Well lets say I paid about $17,000 with a check to my dealer for the car, and I already spent about $43,000 (includes car) I will just list major mods forget small mods.
I upgrade the suspension to: Hotchikis springs, camber links in the back, camberplate with strut bar for the front, rear 3 point brace, Cusco front under arm brace, Tanabe rear under arm brace, JDM TRD Anti-sway bars (JDM one is thicker than US).
To get more usable power to the wheels: ACT clutch, Kaaz 2 way clutch type Limited Slip Differential.
As for maintainace: every 1500 miles full synthetic high weigh motor oil, every 3000 miles synthetic Tranny oil change. Always use Chevron 91 Octane fuel at all times.
