The cheap celica 190 t sport

Post by mi60o0 » Thu Sep 03, 2020 5:34 pm

This is the rx8 replacement. Not that classy but still okay to drive cheap parts and cheap to insure also like the lift after 6k rpm
Won't be heavy modified is just run around and a bit of fun hopefully few track days etc.

I quite like the 190 Celicas, they still look quite good (particularly the GT) and the engine is quite fun. I reckon They drive like an RX-8 with a stuck SSV, a bit lacklustre for most of the revs then goes like stink for the last few thousand rpm.

The missus had the Corolla T Sport with the same engine. It definitely shifted, though it always amused me Toyota listed the 0-60 as 8.9 seconds for the Corolla and 7 seconds for the Celica. Naughty, naughty...

Toyota are always saying porkies regarding their 0.60 times so as the cars can be put in lower insurance groups in the UK :!:

My car for instance is quoted at 7.2secs in the UK, but what it should say is 6.9secs but if it did in the UK, then it would be 1 group higher on Insurance :!: :!:

I found this all out while having the car remapped from Fensport :thumleft:

Talking of Fensport, get your car over to them at some point Mihail :thumright:

You have to do test drive in the smax boosting to 19 psi peak in 3rd rofl that is flying make the celica and rx8 feel slow
