Turbo up and running.

OK guys... UPDATE... Got my GTS XS kit boosting and going now. THe car now revs to 8,700 rpms and lift kicks in about 5800 rpms instead of 6,200 rpms stock. The kit will also let you hit lift in 6th so your top speed is no longer 140ish, but 170mph. YOU MUST BUY BRAKES ASAP...

When the weather gets some salt off the ground, I'll post some war stories of how I made corvettes bow down like bitches to me... PEACE YA"ll

Damn...

So what is the deal with the new 8700 redline? Is that specified somewhere in the manual? Same with the 170MPH top... where is that number from?

Props on the boost... that's gonna be fun. Indeed... buy TRD brakes and springs if you haven't yet.

170 mph, how much did the kit cost, Jesse james blew over 10 grand on a jet engine, and didnt even get over 200 mph (i know it was a short run way) but damn a boost kit can bring you to 10 mph, away from jesses Helica!

how much do turbo kits costs', and after you get one are there other parts you have buy to compensate for the extra power?

"You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your f------ khakis. You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world."

So, Cal
congrats on getting it up and running. Too bad you are so far away. You could come the the Dyno shootout next month. It looks like there will be about 8-10 boosted celicas there.

the kit just bolted on is supposed too push out 250whp. Exhaust and pulley may add8 or so to the wheel. My blow-off valve hits very hard when I bang gears, sounds so sick!

The GTS weighs 2450. Not trying to be a smart ass, but 150 pounds is like another person... 250 hp at the wheel is around 315 hp at the crank. MONSTER... I havnt launched from first yet, but a rolling start in second will fry the tires all through the gear and chirp third HARD..

damn, 170 MPH is crazy. spineyes

I bet on DR's you might break 12 in the 1/4 if you now how to drive. Lot of low 13's on people inexperienced with with boosted 1/4 runs

Ha Ha ... I might get too fat huh? Cuase Im going to eat.. and eat and eat and eat... HEHE! My first stomp is going to be next week, this guy in a V6 mustang kept stomping on me, three races in a row... I heard he has a GT 4.6L motor under the Hood... Well then he doesnt need to know I got this turbo when I race him for $50. in our awaited rematch... He had me by 2 cars in the quarter last time. Should be reversed now... FUCK HIM!
