a buddy of mine is looking to buy a 1988 celica gt. 156k miles. 5 speed. 2.0L 3S-FE. does anybody have any info in this car such as horsepower, torque, weight, rev limiter, fuel capacity, fuel mileage, etc..

The 3SFE is rated at around 115 HP at the crank. Torque about the same. I haven't found the rev limiter yet, so it is about 6200. I would assume 6500. Mudhoney holds ~13 gallons from as far as I will let her go dry. She puts down 28-32 MPG.

I like the car, very nimble, predictable. The engine is fun, but could be faster.

yeah, they are pretty quick. its my neighbors car, and when he got it, he let me drive it. where he was new at driving a standard, i was far from it. on a road most cars have trouble holding the speed limit (30) i hit 65. he practically crapped his pants. thats what made me want one. now i got my 92 gts.

I have one. they're as fast as a snail on a salt path.

HOWEVER...
Properly done, they can be fun little cars that handle like a dream and appear to run on air. Don't even bother tuning the 3sfe. Put your money into the suspension. Borinal and Luni can tell you what this will get you. they both drove mine.

Mine is currently being used as a cat bed though.

Even with a blown 200k mile suspension they handle similar to a go-kart.
