Any question on the spec of TRD sports M?

Hello everyone!

I read some posting regarding the sports m. Some info posted weren't accurate. My ride is the limited edition celica TRD spec sports m (1200 units worldwide).

The sports M is basically an enhancement from the J-spec SS2 (GTS) super strut version. In Japan, 4 version of the celica were produced. SS1 (GT), SS2 (GTS), SS2 super strut and the TRD sports m.

Main difference between SS2 and a super strut SS2 is a
1) sports metal pedal
2) Stiffer suspension/damper
3) LSD
4) bigger turning radius and heavier weight.
Power 190bhp

The sports M is build on top of the Super Strut

1) TRD tuned ECU (more aggressive fuel map)
2) Reinforced chasis (spot welded on the A frame and rear frame)
3) Full TRD suspension ( coile, damper, front sway bar )
4) Rear 2 point mounted strut bar
5) TRD Sports meter
6) TRD short shifter
7) TRD cat back exhaust
8) TRD steering wheel.
9) Unique TRD body kit

Power 200bhp

Any question? Feel free to ask.

Both Torque and hp is raised. I should have a dyno chart lying some where... if I found it I will post it up.

Sports M catalog indicate a torque figure of 188N/M

Comparing to a stock GTS, the sports M pulls better on the top end RPM range. And for some reason the third gear of the sports m is much powerful than that of a GTS.

aren't those the same pedals as the GTS and what's the deal with the screen that's in place of the box on the top of the center dash.

I don't think you can get those seats anywhere other than Japan.

What am I missing? Those seats are the same as mine. They're like that on all T Sport models only instead of cheapy looking material they're leather. All the blue touches are exactly how Ford ruined the interior of the RS Focus. Personally I don't like it, and why most people criticised Ford for the interior.

Nice color blue though, its unique, but I still prefer the dark blue of my car. Prefer my standard wheels too.

Note: these are just my opinions. Please don't hate on me for expressing them

I like that built in TV though. Makes up for the ugly steering wheel. How much is the sports M out of interest?
