I'm the owner of a Celica '00 GT and I 've been searching for a while for a performance tuning for my car however I hadn't found anything satisfactory up until now. I went to a local garage the other day and asked the guys over there what they would suggest for my car. They said that they could put a turbo to the car which would be at 1.6-1.7 bar pressure and would give out 260-270 bhp (to the crank). The cost was around 8000 euros and it included all the mechanical parts that would be needed (turbo, intercooler, pipings e.t.c.), engine internals, management and also labour. I can't remember if the price included transmission enchanhing though, but I think it did.
TOTAL BS. A CELI WITH 1,5 BAR MAKES ~300WHP MINE MAKED 255 WHP AT 0,9 BAR
Also, some other guy at another garage said that he could put a turbo (Garett T2.5) at 0.9 bar pressure which would yield 200 bhp to the crank. The price is 6000 euros and it includes all the parts needed, transmission parts change and labour (I'm not sure about the engine internals).
AGAIN 200 BHP IS ~0,4 BAR AND NEED NO INTERNALS.
Which of the two kits would you guys believe would be most suitable for my car ? I like the 260 bhp conversion better because that's a helluva horsepower for the car and also the mechanic sounded more serious and responsible than the 2nd one, however I am in doubt whether such a horsepower would be 100% utilized by the car (since it's a FWD)...
I would appreciate some thoughts...
Thanks in advance.
P.S. : Sorry if my terminology is not 100% accurate but since english is not my main langauge, I'm not accustomed to the english automotive jargon.
IF YOU WANT I CAN HELP YOU TO MAKE 300 WHP, MY CURRENT KIT (3RD ONE) MAKES ~300WHP AT 1,3 BAR, BUT THIS ONE IS JUST A PROTOTYPE AND UNDER TESTING. I CAN PROMISE 255WHP FOR SURE, BUT YOU NEED INTERNALS AS WELL AS INJECTORS,ECU,BOV,BC,BIG IC,. WE USE CROWER RODS WISECO 8.8 PISTONS, AND GREDDY FUEL MANAGEMENT AND K04 TURBO TILL THAT POWER. german forum and pics, we done my st2 kit to a Dutch buddy and doing some to Germany 255 whp video in sixth gear (no vvti) turbo DYNO with VVTI malfunction 255 whp video in sixth gear (no vvti)
