new guy

i used to drive a 1990 celica alltrac, but sold her because it was turning into a huge money pit. i'm new to civics, so hopefully i'll learn a lot here. here are some pics, peace.

i don't plan to do too much. right now i have a skunk2 shift **** sitting in the box and i ordered a dc sports shift adaptor, but it's backordered. i'll probably order some OEM side skirts this week. i've been looking for front lips, but i don't know which ones will fit or where i can find pics of 05's with them, any suggestions?

the new celica's are weak, plain and simple. my buddy has one that's pretty modded and i walked him so easily in my alltrac. granted i had a decent amount of stuff done to my alltrac, but i just don't think the new celica's are that great, looks-wise or performance-wise. an rsx type s kills it.

i have the revo on my 04 and its awesome. i think its way better than any adapter on the market. go with the revo. nice celica dude. i may sound like a complete noob but is that a turbocharger? its the biggest dam turbocharger i've ever seen if it is. looks kinda like a supercharger though? what all did you have on the celica and what kind of numbers were you running?

the celica alltrac was the only turbocharged celica ever made... it's pretty hard to see the turbo in the pics, it's really not that big. here's a link to the mods i had done:
http://www.freewebs.com/dlek00/Car.htm

i never took it to the dyno, but last time at the track i was running high 13's on a slipping clutch and crappy stock tires. that was at 12 psi, stock is roughly 8. if i had a good clutch and tires and turned up the boost, definitely low 13's...

getting an adapter over the whole assembly is like getting a muffler over a cat-back. pay a little more to get a better product.
