How would you know what the power fc does for the celica? It's not even out.00redgts00 said:does the hondata reflash help for more low end tourque or is it just horsepower cause i know the power fc for the celica gives it like 20 more lbft of touque? ive already tryeed searching and cant find anything! thanx
:laughing:benca1 said:Remember APEXiTypes, the Celica is marketed and intended for discriminating women who wish to carry a stylish flair over to their personal automobile and not just their handbag. 1500 to enhance it is surly chump change for a customer who spends 700 on a Gucci handbag.
I realize the ecu isn't tuned for his mods, but his mods are simple bolt ons. The only thing his mods would do is throw the air fuel off. I wouldn't hold my breath if your really expecting 20wtq.:nervous:00redgts00 said:the guy on there that posted about the pfc also has headers and exaust and the pfc wasnt tuned for that yet so it might be working against him. and its a complete stand alone ecu. all u have to do is hook up a laptop to it and u can change anything. its like 1200 dollars i belive which is way to much for me for just 8-10 hp
The celica weighs 2500lbs and is geared pretty aggressively. It's a great car, but the aftermarket can not compete with the rsx.freekboy said:i dont understand....rsx is already 20 hp more...so even if the celica did get 20 hp or tq or watever....how can they expect to beat a hondata rsx?
C'mon, how many Hondata owners said they couldn't feel that much difference after the reflash? Then they got it dyno'ed and saw the real affects. Seriously, this reflash for the Celica might have smoothed the dyno curve out just like Hondata so its deceptive.APEXiTypes said:Heres another quote for you from someone who has it.
"as for power the car has more pull from the 1,000 to 3,000 rpms, but then drops off to around normal levels. I really didn't feel any improvement above 3000 rpms."
for 1500 bucks!
$1500 for the ecu and the power gains probably won't be more than 20 whp at best (probably less) and the current generation celica has been out for how long!?!? That car should of had a better aftermarket.APEXiTypes said::laughing:
Seriously though, I post over on newcelica.org quite often, and all I hear is......."When the power fc comes out, you rsx's wont have anything over us!"
So far, from reading what I have, Im not too worried. Not only are the power gains not impressing me, but the price is ridiculous. Celica owners aren't willing to spend 700 on a header that gives them 10whp, but they'll spend 1500 on an ecu for 8whp down low?
