View Full Version : what can i do??

I have a 1997 celica gt 5 spd and im looking for a few ideas to get some more hp's out of it. Different plugs (heat range and part #'s) and any other ideas. I have to keep the motor "appearing" stock for the series i race in (no intakes, header, stuff like that).
Thanks for all your help! Kurly

use the right plugs, if you dont you can burn holes in pistons and blow headgaskets.

do you have a cat on?

Head work is about all I can suggest, and maybe slightly larger injectors and tuning.

Start with removing all the intake resonator boxes inside your driver side fender well.
Replace your stock filter with a K&N drop-in panel filter

You could gut your cat but it probably won't do much for you and not really worth the effort. I'd suggest on getting your suspension (Bushings/endlinks/springs/balljoints) all maintained and updated to really improve your times
