Toyota Celica

Postby Fokkae on Sun Jun 22, 2008 12:29 am

Fokkae, I want to fully modify a 2000 celica. its comes with 1.6 inline engine which cant push more than 140hp. I want to swap that with a 2.2-2.5 turbo engine. how much hp will I gain buy doing so...240? and where do I go from there...exhaust, air filter? what else? how much is the final hp that achieved from putting maximum preformance parts in this car? waiting for reply...Fukks

Fokoko, how many different kinds are there? I came up with the Idea because its the most potent of the v4 family; unless im mistaken you can correct me. I want to stomp the biggest engine possible in the heart of the celica. is there a bigger engine I can opt for? I could use as much info as possible because there are several garages that specialize in car modifying/tuning. When I contacted one and told them is it possible they said yes so I thought its a good idea it wont cost much considering a major upgrade like an engine swap and a transformation from auto to manual. what do you think? I to upgrade the F*** out this celica..Fakkokk :mrgreen:

Do your research before making any big plans. Garages make big money outta people like you.
I'm guessing you own the seventh gen Celica? I would recommend selling it off and thinking of something else as your tuning platform because this Celica is FF.

FACKOK,yes its the 7'th celica the one that looks like its run over by a truck. I didnt even buy the car yet and this how it starts...man the car looks so good...Ive seen many other cars but this one really reflected my personality.whats wrong with FF cars? and which cars will make better tuning platforms? what are the other options? the eclipse is too common, but there is the 3000gt which is not bad,. what do you think about v8's like mustangs and cobras? they are heavy weights but at the end of the day does it pay to drive a heavy wieght?.

Mustangs are great project cars. Cheap parts commonly available.
FR and AWD cars make great platforms.

Man Ive seen a very masculin japan-imported V8 cobra which im really considering, to me a car is an extention of one's personality. when you are on the road or at traffic light and look to your right and see GTR and to your left you see a sirion that to me translates a messege that here the road is a battlefield, a caste system where horsepower and torque seperate pray from beast. believe me, drive here long enough and you'll know what i mean. I live in sharjah, what about you?

If you are thinking of importing these cars, then you can forget it.
New rule in: Car older than 5 years cannot be imported.

Have not seen that many WRX STis for sale, so hard to give a market price.

EVO might be a better bet for UAE..you'll find a larger crowd to hang out with. :)
