October's Featured Project: 1985 Toyota Celica
Here is a nasty surprise for Camaros and Mustangs. Duncan Fraser's
turbocharged Celica runs 12.9 seconds @ 111 mph @ 10 psi on 92 octane fuel.
On the induction side, a stock 22RE throttle body is used with 2.5 inch mandrel bent plumbing and a gigantic 15.5 x 19 x 3 inch Spearco intercooler. A huge K&N filter is fitted to the front of the Garrett.
Torque is delivered through the stock 5 speed and a Tilton solid center metallic disc and a performance pressure plate. A custom one piece driveshaft takes torque to a Supra rear end with 3.73 gears and disc brakes.
An SDS EM-1E management system replaces the stock injection system and eliminates the restrictive airflow meter. Bosch 500cc injectors replace the factory 220cc pieces. Magnecor wires and NGK plugs fire the mixture.
ARE 16 x 8 wheels with Yokohama 245/45/16 tires top off the package.
