Congratulations dude! I fixed your photos for you. So are you going to get dyno tuning? Where did you order it from? How much did it run you?

The turbo is pretty big. It looks small because its on the box it was shipped in that contained all the pipeing. Ill show you guys a close up of the turbo, its about the size of a football.

Thanx for all the complements.!!!

All you gotta do is upload them, then right click on the photo and go to properties. Once the property window opens, you'll see the url that ends with a .jpg. Use that url in between the image tags. If you still need help, i got ya

Unfortunately for GT owners, it is only for the GTS. Search for manufacturers of turbo kits for the GT.

Nice man, I've been thinking of going turbo lately, but I'm concerned about warranty issues with my car. I guess I'll just wait until the warranty is dead before I go that route. Also, it'd be a unique thing to do, not many auto GTS cars with turbos (although I've seen a couple floating around, they aren't that common)

Gives me the time to save up for the kit, also would be a good excuse to beef up the motor prior to the install, since the car wil have like 75K miles on it when the warranty's gone.

Good luck bro, that will be sweet! thumbsup

That thing is gonna be sick...

Go dyno that baby as soon as you get it in!

I think the smaller turbo is certianly the way to go on the GTS. The quicker spool time will help it a ton before it hits lift.

Gives me the time to save up for the kit, also would be a good excuse to beef up the motor prior to the install, since the car wil have like 75K miles on it when the warranty's gone.

Good luck bro, that will be sweet! thumbsup

I only have 11,200 miles on my gts. I have another car for the winter. If I drove up to Toyota and asked for warranty work, they would start laughing and say "Where is the celica at" hehe! nothing is stock. I dont worry about warranty stuff because I fix it all myself as it is.
