quiksilver my buddy has a gts with the vvtl-i engine and that thing can be a monster. its almost exactly like v-tec except on steroids

project2point wth why is the tq almost at redline hahahah!!!!

dantegl36 Thats what I was thinking I noticed that the torque was rather low and its peak hp was near redline, as is with most imports excluding nissans.

lildisco Celicas may have more HP, but when do they hit there most HP..............anyone....................anyone...........damn near red line. And to think about torque and when that kicks in if ever. I drove a Toyota Corrolla S with the same 140HP motor in a Celica and that thing had no acceleration until redline then the autocrapic shifted and quess what no power again untill redline.

Copied from here:
http://www.kbb.com/kb/ki.dll/kw.kc.n...TOXK_TA;060402
Horsepower 140 @ 7600 RPM
Torque 125 @ 6800 RPM

You have her hands down from a dig. From a roll you'd have her as long as you don't mis-shift. And with an Auto Tradgic, she'd be maybe around 100HP to the wheels and even Less Torque.

04-15-2006 09:28 AM

dantegl36 Thanks for the advice. I'll see if she wants to the drag strip, should be fun. I have respect for the racing women as well, I thaught my ex to drive on a 5-speed and she bought a 5-speed 92 turbo eclipse and has kicked many a guys ass in that thing.

focusedaddiction sounds like a drivers race to me, i don't think a few extra ponies would matter. a good launch will help you a bit. just my .02 cents worth

magic2119 And i'm not going to nag at you, but if you can, pay the 15 or 20 bucks and go to a drag strip to race. so much safer, and you dont have to worry about cops!
