    Alright, I'm on a rating site right now which is completely unrelated to cars but some kid is claiming that he has a Celica GTS with 220hp from basic bolt on mods and pullies.

    Another kid is flaming me saying I'm an idiot and he got 32hp out of a CAI and exhaust. Sound logical to you guys at all?

    I typically hate these kinds of thread and know that they're full of shit and dont know their ass from a hole in the wall but i just wanted a thread to point to when I told them that.

    Ask for a dyno plot. Until then: End of story.

    He didnt claim he dynoed it, just claimed he gained 40hp from those mods.


    Please just tell me for the record theres no feasible way that he gained that power because I'm going to post this in the thread.

    He can bench race all he wants, but he's just making himself look like a fool. Also, it appears he's talking in crank hp, and anyone who doesn't want to look like a moron will speak in whp.

    I'm going to assume we're talking about a modern Celica... because there are different dynamics with the older ones (RWD sweethearts)

    What he did was read the box and add from there. It's common. Like K&N's adding power. They do, sure.. but on a laboratory tested engine in perfect conditions - You know, Bell jarring - It happened to add 25 hp.

    Results aren't typical.

    If he's talking about an older RWD one, preferably carbbed then these kinds of gains are possible. "IHE" takes on a new meaning when you're running a dual plane Offenhauser, Holley 400 cfm and doug thorley header with a flowmaster. Now you're talking about putting some more power down, versus the new-age idea of K&N FIPK, DC Sports and greddy.

    I thought so. If you have forgotten: 300ZX, Supra, etc... adds like 10832083hp with just an intake. Okay more like 25hp or so, but thats still a shit load.

    How much power do those Titan Supras and stuff have? I thought around the 1100whp? Don't they run high 8s?
    But yeah most of the Supras are dyno queens made for top hp and not usuable and seriously lack traction.
