Results: Well It was the first time I saw my friend's Celica. It had Racing Pipes and a bunch of other mods (CAI, RAM AIR), plus it was straight drive. I was ahead at first but he beat me within 5 seconds. It was a 2000 Celica GTS, loudest f*in car I have heard lol. Pretty responsive car though. My truck is all stock so any ideas on getting the biggest bang for my buck in terms of trying to beat this Celica?

My truck is a 2001 3.0 XLT. The most I have done is removed the silencer, zip ties on the gas pedal and K&N drop in filter.

Swap a 4.0...but if youre going to swap, might as well go 5.0...Other than that, your 145hp 3.0 truck wont beat a 1.8L 140hp car. Regearing would probably help though.

The GT-s from 2000 had 180hps and a 0-60 of 6.6s, i guess a swap would be the cheapest, as Cole said.

If he modded his car, its only natural he would own you, it was quite the unfair race, lol

You lost to a stock Celica. Unless there are some actual mods you didn't list.

What "modded up" changes make you laugh?

By the way, Celica GT-Four's are actually really fast, and with a little work can outperform supercars.

I would imagine he's refering to mods like neon spark plug wires, bookshelf "spoilers", a #10 coffee can glued to a high pitched muffler, and direct hot air ingestion intakes. Invisible turbos are another big one.

The only thing that really makes this car Ricer is a fart can and some racing stickers (He bought the car with it all installed before-hand) As I said it has a bit more HP than my Truck, a Straight Drive car is also going to be faster than my automatic. He had alot of mods to the engine though, I didn't look at it long though.

I just want some viable modifications I could make to my truck engine-wise without doing a swap. I can't have my truck down for that long, nor do I have the time.
