Mod for mod that thing would be toasted with change to spare.Originally Posted by DTR rexPeople that run mid 15's with a GTS cannot properly drive it. Its a high reving motor that needs someone to know how to drive it. why do you think TypeR's were getting low 15's in mags but than all the sudden enthusiests got ahold of it and were running 14.7-14.8's all day long. same with the RSX-S and integra GSR, and the GTS. An experienced and aquainted GTS driver should have no problem pulling off 14.8-15.0 in decent conditions. Many run solid mid 14's with intake and catback. Also, with a driver who can drive it, they tend to trap around 94mph or so when driven properly.. this is right where a wrx is, and by 100mph the WRX is running out of breath (atleast the turbo is) and the celica is just getting started. Its the same exact thing with an RSX-S as well, though the rsx is a bit faster... also, its similar with the typeR but the typeR having the bigger advantage over the GTS.
check out the celica forums, you will see that good drivers do not have much trouble running 14.8-15.1 @ 94mph or so.
I dont know his full setup. heres what I know off hand. intake, header, intake manifold, catback, engine managment, pulleys, a little weight reduction and sticky tires. Generally he is more in the lower 14's but he did break into very high 13's.
*edit* you know, now that I think of it, that trap might not have been 106mph. I think that was a guy with a turbo GSR that went to the track with him... maybe he was doing 103mph or so.. I will have to double check
