A late model Celica GT-S ends up next to me at a stoplight. I look over and notice him just as the light turns green and he catches me napping.
I don't even try cause I've never done the ricer flyby and tonight wasn't going to be my first.
When he takes off, I notice the TRD sticker and can hear a really nice exhaust, plus an intake and BOV when he shifted... probably a few more things, but nothing major.
We end up together at the next stoplight... and for a brief moment I think about the EBC switch... nope, but it's there for 3rd gear if I need it. We'll see if wastegate is enough.
EBC definitely not needed. When I hit boost in first the right rear lit up cause they're 195's and it's 35* out... short shift into second while he gains 1/2 carlength... and then it's over... and I mean over. I had 2+ carlengths by the end of second, and when I let out of in 3rd at about 70mph, I had a ******* bus and a half at least. I know he was on it hard, cause when I let off in 3rd, I looked back and saw his headlights really bright, then go dim as he let off and the nose dropped.
At 7psi, it only feels a hair slower than my bandaids at 12psi (and that was on a motor headed south)... I can't wait for the dyno day!!!
i cant wait i love the MS, i was just in my garage, and i could never do a burnout with the 17's that i had on because they were so heavy and i lit them up in my garage like nothing ahha, when summer comes im throwing on the stocks and lighting them up till theres no rubber left lol
i'd say a bov on a celica is a little major... they dont come from the factory with a turbo. just 190 n/a bhp I think.
that is still a badass yamaha motor they have, badass enough for the lotus I think some supercharger kits can make them pretty good, i had seen a video on a celica website of one whipping up on a 650cc bike on the interstate but can't find it now
I raced 2 civic Si turbos on the highway (with my gf in the passenger seat LOL) 60mph start... i was TOYING with them... 5th gear i was 1.5 car length ahead at 100mph... second pull... i started in 3rd... i let off the gas at 130mph... they were so far back i had to slow down to 60 for them to catch up. i looked in my mirror and honest to god, at least 10 lengths. DOMINATION!!
The 7th Gen GTS (2000-2005) came with a 2ZZ-GE 1.8 making 180hp w/VVTLi on 7-8psi non-intercooled through one of the small Toyota CT turbos.
They run a 15.5 1/4mile stock. Then the Scion came along and killed Celica sales, so they are no more.
I kinda feel sorry for the guy. It was ridiculous how I pulled on him. Remember the video a few days ago of the late spooling Supra demolishing a Gallardo... kinda like that. One second he has half a length on me, and the next second I'm in another county.
And yes, stock 6" open dif... 150k miles and holding. On dry and warm pavement, I have no traction problems. Concrete/cold/moisture+195's=right rear smokums!
When I was with my buddy down in Richmond, he'd warm up his nitrous bottle every time we went out just in case....on a 5.0 that already had plenty of power....but he always liked rubbing his street drag radials and 500+rwtq in peoples faces
