Default First street race w/MS!

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!!!

Nice. It's a good feeling for sure. You have an open differential? Sounds like it's running great, good job. I love hearing good stories, it's motivation for me to get my setup done this summer.

Crank it up. You think Celicas are fun? You'd like the look on the E46 M3 owner's face as I vent the BOV on a WOT 4-5 upshift, and then continue to pull on him.

I can't believe you'd be so reckless and street race! What the hell is wrong with you?

















Oh wait, wrong forum. Nicely done.

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!!

Yea, newer celica gts' have 180hp and a monstrous 130tq stock, if you beat a boosted one that's pretty good because they can make decent hp on not too much boost. Good kill either way though

It always makes you feel good to kill a car that thinks "Eh, it's just a miata" till you leave em back!

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!

i am fairly certain that the GTS did not come turbocharged, they made more power because of their VVTL-i and were NA
