I ended up spending 3900. I bought injectors and a bigger intercooler. I also went to a T3/T4 Hybrid turbo.

hmmm... what did you do about fuel management? because if you go with bigger injector you gotta be able to manage amount of fuel injected. Glad to have another boosted celica on the board, keep us posted on how it goes.

I went with a new fuel pump and an FMU. They said that would do it. Im not sure about the PSI. What do you think mike? We actually started fitting stuff today and it looks like they sent the wrong exhaust manifold. So we are getting ready to call them. Hopefully I will be spanking American cars in a couple of days. Im tired of wasting my gas on Hondas.

vaperz00celica is full of $hit!!! i know him. the only thing he has is a FAKE blowoff valve kit!!!

J/K!!!

No. he is legit. i saw the kit in person and i'm jealous! I have a 00 GTS 6-speed. I would rob him, but i'm not sure if his kit would work with my car or not. hehe Everything is top of line. he got ALL the good stuff. man, if only i had the cash too! Chris, i can't wait til you get it hooked up. i'm dying to take it for a spin!

I started my nitrous install today. i only got the custom switch panel made today, BUT now everything is ready to hook up. i may do it this week. i may just say screw the compression test again! maybe not... all i can say is that we are DEFINATLY gonna be the fastest 7th gen Celicas around here!!! Give me a call sometime. you, drew, and i need to hook up and get the celica's representing around here. tired of all these dayum hondas getiing all the attention. later man!

grin I'm from WV originally. Looks like I'm gonna hafta stop by Huntington on my way in next time just so your not so sure about being the fastest 7th gen's in the area! [Razz] Actually would love to see the turbo'd GT in action. Would love to find a more cost effective GTS solution than the Blitz supercharger frown

oh yeah. stop in sometime. we'll have to line em' up sometime. i'm not sure what all you have done, but vaperz00celica will have the turbo on his GT, and i'll have the NX kit sprayin' at least a 35 shot on my GTS 6-speed. we'll see who's the fastest gun in the east...

well, if WV counts as the east...

let us know when you roll through!

Do you worry about damaging your engine with nitrous? Have you done any of the engine mods to make it safer? Dunno, I just don't trust a NO2 system in my daily driver car smile I can see me calling into work saying that I can't make it because I blew my engine.

I only have stickers on my quarter window, no other sticker (except for Nisei showoff sticker on windshield because I am too lazy to scrape it off after the show) Yeah I finally got my turbo, when I say I am going to do something I will do it. So far everything I said I want to put on my car I got, all I am missing right now is my fuel pump and regulator and return fuel line. After I get all those you will see a 10p.s.i. daily driver.

turbo-performance turbo kit is set at stock 5~8p.s.i. not sure which one you gotta ask them. Now with 8p.s.i. you would have 80 more HP to the wheels which means you are well over 210 front wheel horse power. With this much HP your torque will also increase I would recommand you change your clutch when you have a chance. Now if you want to boost more you will have to get a boost controller, if you do you will need 4 important gauges boost gauge (come with the kit) A/F ratio gauge (with the kit) Emission Gas Temperature gauge (have to buy along with a probe) and finally oil pressure gauge. As you can tell I have been doing a lot of research into turbo celica, because I am trying my hardest to findout the safest I can get away with on my celica.

Pretty sweet stuff. Boost controller and injectors should be here tomorrow. I'll give you a call this week Lynn. LATE. Oh yea...anyone know how to post pics on here?

hey Chris. why don't you go over to the newcelica.org forum and see what they all have to say? a lot of people cruising that board. just a thought...

oh, find out anything new?

caerie, nah. not too worried about it. no2 is safe if it isn't abused. i know that the GTS motor wasn't made to take 100 shots all the time. there are people who have run 75 shots a whole bunch without problems. one guy i talked to has gone through 10 refills, spraying 75. i figure that the 35 shot COULDN'T be that bad then. also, a lot of people are spraying 50 shots. i haven't heard of anyone yet to blow their engine from running nitrous(celica owners). but if i blow my motor, i'll let you know wink

find a place that will host your pics for you. that's what i did. i use 7thgencivic.com. you know that my girlfreind drives a civic, so i'm not really just using their site or anything. the only thing is that you have to become a member. not just register, but be on the members list. i guess so people won't use up too much space on the 7thgen site.

all you have to do is copy the address, and then go to the reply page here. then hit the image button and paste the address in.
