Hey guys. I have been thinking about swapping the GT4 for a 7th gen. However there are some things I need to find out first. Iím thinking about an 02 model with VVTLi

My friend has a Mitsubishi FTO with Mivec. He has a Mivec controller so he can choose when the extra power kicks in. Is there such a thing for the VVTLi??

Can I put a turbo on a VVTLi engine? I know itís ment to be hard, but it can be done right? (I donít plan on doing this myself at all. Strictly by professionals)

Are there forged pistons and accessories for the VVTLi? (to help in the turbo stages)

What else should I know about it really?

Please help.

yes there is a rather large aftermarket for the 7G, and there are like 2 turbo kits for that very car....there is lots of internal parts too...stroker kits and all that good stuff...

The first orange one kinda resembles a 350Z.......... But the 2nd orange one with the black hood......I LOVE THOSE WHEELS... They would be the shit if they were black with that HUGH Chrome lip they have

Yes, Richard definitely has one of the best looking Celicas I have ever seen. We took a vote once to see who everybody thought had the best looking car and most people voted for him.

He said that he might powder coat the wheels gunmetel. You're right though, black would look awesome. Black spokes with a polished lip is what I'll be using with my APR kit.

I would probably get a boner if I got to drive one of the Celicas that have over 300 WHP. People that have ridden in Smaay's Celica said that it scared the crap out of them.

I post a link to this site every now and then on NC.org. Problem is....this 7th gen forum is very slow. Seems like there is about 5 people who post here. I have been waiting for it to pick up since the day I joined this site.

You do have a great site though.

Thanks. I'm thinking of adding pictures of everyone's interior too, but I'm not sure yet. I'm also thinking of doing a list like this for all the N/A 7th gens.

We are all waiting for lowredcruzr to finish that custom widebody. He just got it painted and I'm dying to see how it turned out. He also had a custom set of wheels made for it that he is not allowed to show us yet.

I'll post pics of the finished project here if you would like?

Yes, I would very much like the finished pictures as soon as they are available. That is very exotic looking. I really like it.

Okay, I'll post pictures as soon as it's done.

I have also started a list like this for all the N/A 7th gens if you guys would like to check that out too....

Sorry about that. I deleted my post and moved the list into my own thread. Didn't mean to jack this thread, I just thought the list would help him if he were to turbo a 7th gen.

Rome I would definately keep your GT-Four either that or get a 205. I wouldn't even bother to put a turbo on a 7th gen unless you're seriously commited to dumping an over excessive amount of money. You can make you're 185 a 12 sec car much easier and alot cheaper then making a 7g Celica into one. Not trying to rag on the 7gs or anything. Oh yeah and I'm pretty sure that guy lowredcruzer lives like 10 min from my house. Last time i talked to him he was looking for a 4age for his bro's ae92. Wide body looks good. Definately unique.

GT4SOM: I know where you are coming from. But I'm not looking for a 12 second car. The 185 is just getting a little old and I already know what it's like pouring tons of money into a car. What gt4 owner doesn't. The idea started off me being tired of fixing things that go bang cos of the cars age. So I'm toying with the idea of a new car and bringing out it's potential. Even if it is FF.

By the time I get the money fo this project the 7th gen will be old too :squint:
