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.
