i raced my uncle in his chevy sumthing, he bet his car and i bet a chevy 350 small block out of my camaro. i flat out spanked him lol. this is the first race since i had the car, (have my license taken away, dad said i could race him) and is actually the first time i have driven the car besides the test drive. i noticed that the car does great in the lower gears but isnt all that great in 4th and 5th gear. i had to have been going 125-130 mph, the spedo stops at 120 i think, well what ever it stops at i was past that. i am happy with the car, it gives me lots of power and is fast but i want a little more. so far i have put an air intake on it. planning on putting new exhaust on it but was looking at engine swap. what other cars have the same engine/engine parts that can go on either the 5sfe (thinks thats the engine type). what cars have the turbo that will fit in the car, i know of the alltrac and gt-s i believe but are there any others? and performance mods that will help me go faster would be great, im planning on takin my car to the track and drag racing this summer at a local meet. thanks alot guys

my uncles car vs. my 90 celica gt = him :owned:

First, do a little searching here. There is a wealth of info about swapping engines, and about what use can be made of the 5sfe. Glad to hear you had fun though, hope it was in a safe place.

Moving to the Drag Racing forum. Take a look at the stickies in the Forced Induction forum and you find all the answers to your questions.

Good win...what kind of Chevroshit was it? The GT-S has the same engine your car does and is not a turbo. It also has a fuel cut off at 119, although that may be broken.

Good job.

Now wait a minute - you won his "chevy something" but you don't know what it is ??? was it, like, a Cavalier, or something ;)
would have to think if you won the race/title/car, you'd know exactly what Chevy it is.... just wondering

This is the last thing you need to know since you would never reach that speed in a safe environment, and I don't mean just at a track. I mean you are nuts to take a stock Celica up to or over that speed without the supporting mods. Do you even know what speed rating your tires have?

sorry guys didnt think people where still looking at this thread. it was like a lumina or sum pile of crap like that. i didnt really want to re-register it so i had it for about a week and didnt want it. i gave it back to him and he bought me new tires. i know his lumina was weak but i felt good after the win and we both had alot of fun. at first i didnt really want to race but after him calling me chicken-shit for 5 min i backed my car onto the road and whooped his ass. hasnt called me chicken since lol.
i was really happy with the performance through 1st and 2nd gear, when i hit 3rd i noticed i wasnt getting the acceleration as my old eclipse. im very happy with my car and i know that it would prolly kill my eclipse but the tranny in the celica sucks. (not saying that it grinds and that throught the gears its just i feel its weak compared to the power of the engine.) sorry guys about not watchin. later

lol...... alright i was speeding and my music was to loud. i dont really speed anymore because of not having a license for 6 months, which really sucks lol. the only reason i raced is because everyone at my house was calling my chickenshit, and after awhile i got mad and just said fck it and went and raced. im not going to be racing anymore until the local speed track has thier drag races. take it from me DONT SPEED, KEEP IT ON THE TRACK!

and for the tranny thing (sorry for double post) its just that 3-5th gear looses alot of acceleration. i know the tranny can handle the power its just i dont think its set up right, its set up to be....... idk the word sum1 help me! well it doesnt really matter i cannot change the tranny with no money.
