Wgat brand TURBO!?

Im wondering how much it cost for a complete Celica GTS Turbo kit and what brand and where to get it. How much for just the turbo itself and i can build up from there. I really want that blow off valve sound, adn to start building up my engine. and will an AEM CAI fit on it too? thanks! thumbsup

the CAI wont work with a turbo unless you somehow modify it...there are not too many options out for the GTS as of now but the coming months do look promising.

250 is pretty good, but i'm not arguing that. i'm just correcting him by saying its not 300hp but 250.

250hp is the wheel horse power. Smaay with the kit dynoed at 259hp or maybe it was 257hp can't remember. But that would be close to 300hp at the crank.

actualy with a 10% drivetrain loss it would only be about 275HP at the crank... but still very impressive... which if I remember an EVO VIII has 271 horsepower... but correct me if Im wrong...

yea, the xs engineering kit looks very promising.
but staffords fabrication is also working on a kit for the gts, DA sports is taking orders for the gts kit.

"I know we'll need to sign up for sponsorship before we can advertise, but I thought I'd let you know that the kit is close to release.

Price will be $3700, which includes:
440cc injectors,

K16 turbo (like those on the 993 Porsche),

321 stainless steel manifold, up-pipe, and downpipe (lifetime warranty on these components),

Piggy back computer system with fuel and timing control, open-loop operation, and data acquisition (lap-top reprogrammable if you so choose, but it's pre-programmed when it arrives),

Spearco Intercooler (rated at 530 hp or 770 hp depending on which option you choose),

Factory oil pan with return fitting welded in,

Optional ram-air Intake with Injen filter,

Optional HKS SSQV BOV (Bosch recirculation valve is standard),

Aluminum piping manufactured by Injen for a seamless fit and finish,

All necessary hoses, clamps, fittings, and attachments.

That's about it. It's set to be distributed by BorgWarner's retail stores here in the States, and possibly in Germany and Japan. "

SF looks promising for a GT, when they come out with something for GTS that'll be something to look forward to for sure!
