well i did sell my celica about 6 weeks back. these is pretty old but thought i would share it. my old roomie rented a 07 eclipse with a 2.4 automatic while his 02 celica gts was getting some mods and motor fixed. my car was a 93 celica st with header, cold air intake, rebuilt motor( all new gaskets, piston rings) full exhaust system and exedy stage 1 clutch with 17 inch wheels.

so we go from dead stop. we start off pretty even in 1st, in 2nd i am about a bumper ahead and in 3rd he catches up as in fourth gear the eclipse starts to pull on me about half to a one car. the we race again and again the same results. thought they would be a bit faster. they are 160hp. it was a auto.

the second race is my 00 celica gt spd stock againest a 99 prelude h22 vtec it was a auto but did have some mods cold air intake and exhuast.

we started off in first i pulled a bumper right away. we were same in second i was i was a half car ahead and in third i pulled a little more. when i put it in fourth i was a 1 car ahead but he was slowly catching up and we shut down. he raced 2 more times and same results. he even tryed to slapshift the prelude. thanks for reading guys

yeah the manual would of beat me or at least kept up with me, but the auto is slow.
