Cool Update on Supercharged TeamSolo Celica GT-S

Well everything is finally done. Shoot was edited and after the long delay here is the updated look of the “Hombre Mobile”


What was done:

-Veilside Kit Sold
-TCS front bumper with center molded over
-lowredcruzr spent a lot of time to make it fit as fitment was horrid.
-Trial Sideskirts
-Trial Rear (Hotrod Black bottom)

-Automotive progression Intercooled MP62
-2 Piece Design
-Longtube Runner
-V Plenum
-Automotive Progression (Form and Function) Oil Catch Can
-BaysonR Tow Hook
-Prosport Oil Cooler


What is left to be done:
-Boost leak at one coupler
-Belt Slipping causing reduced top end boost
-Smaller intercooler. One used was more for fitment and placement but its rated CFM is way way too high for this setup so it is killing boost. Contacting a few companies about a custom made one to fit the bumper but flow the proper cfm’s.


So NO numbers yet. The dyno was a good tool to figure out what needed fixing so numbers were no use. I will get new numbers hopefully in next few weeks.



1st here is the most recent shoot. Then below are the build/progression pics


Before that a simple before:








And now the shoot by my buddy Adam































The build:

This was version 1 of the new manifold. It was shortly scrapped.
