Supposed to be (or used to be) the fasted FWD drag car, runs 9s!
The HKS Celica is the first FWD import into the 9s -(firstname.lastname@example.org) to be exact.
The builders yanked the stock five-speed transmission and swapped in an X Track sequential unit that features an AP 5.5-inch diameter triple-plate clutch. The X Track, used in Super Touring cars, allows an array of different gear ratios. The set-up allows the HKS Drag Celica to ideally make the 1-2 shift after the 60-foot mark and cross the finish line just before redline in top gear.
Naturally, a full complement of HKS components is used to generate 560 horsepower from the Toyota 3S-GTE four-banger. These include 9.3:1 forged pistons, connecting rods, metal head gasket, 273-degree intake and exhaust cams, adjustable sprockets, F-CON V fuel computer, wastegate and GT3240 ball-bearing turbo and stainless-steel 4-into-1 exhaust manifold.
Supposed to be around the 650bhp mark!!!!
