I have an 02 Celica GTS, and have been researching Turbo's for quite some time. A friend of mine has a shop and has custom built turbo's for MX6's, and 200SX's...
we were going to build and dyno a turbo for my car...the parts used were most likely going to be...
IHI V11 Turbo ( a bit smaller than XS's v23)
Supra Intercooler (stock) - Possibly upgrading to the front mount skyline that is 24X13X3
My question is everything i've seen for my celica is that the ECU will reset any type of Fuel Controler, AFC, or anything, unless you get a stand alone unit.
We were wondering if anyone has any idea's or experience with simply adding 4 400+ Injectors and running a seperate controler for those 4 injectors. Our reasoning is that this will bypass the ECU and never effect it. We can give the stats straight to the FC that we use for the new injectors, that way even under full boost, the engine will never know it's got the extra injectors.
The only down side we see is it is going to be a bitch to tune for fluctiations in weather, however if we tune it right the first time, we can tune it for certain conditions and the new FC will let you adjust at the RPM range, as well as boost lvl.
I was hoping for thoughts on this, any idea's are helpful and appreciated.
Oh on an additional side note, we are going to custom fab the exhaust manifold, and a new exhaust. We are tryin to run the exhaust out the driver side, behind the door (like the old school muscle cars in front of the rear wheel)
Just for a little something different...
Again all opinions are need and appreciated!
Thanks in advance for all the help
