The Toyota Supra

In tuning circles, the Toyota Supra is legendary.  The Toyota Supra became an iconic vehicle mainly to its great styling, extreme power, handling and overall cutting edge engineering.  While there have been 4 generations and all have been above average for their time period, the one generation that sticks out in the minds of tuners is the last generation, from 1993 to 2002.  During this period, Toyota engineers reached for the stars and definitely delivered one of the finest vehicles made.  There are plenty of ways to modify this vehicle, however since it is already a masterpiece in a lot of ways, many tuners usually focus on the smaller items instead of adding complex components.  Many focus on adding a few horsepower here and there with high performance modifications to the air intake, engine control unit, suspension, brakes, wheels and to some extent the exterior.

Toyota Celica

Another top Toyota to tune is the Toyota Celica.  While the last manufactured year was 2006, the Toyota Celica is still in high demand for a wide range of reasons, mainly being its very sporty stance, light weight and variety of peppy engines.  There were two engines available for the last generation of Celicas, both 1.8 liters.  However, these were matched with either a 4, 5 or 6 speed transmission.  While horsepower is mediocre with some trim packages, it did deliver decent horsepower for a sporty low to mid end vehicle.  Today, the Celica is still popular with tuners, as they usually first modify the body and add a wide range of modifications to both the engine, suspension and electronics.  You will find plenty of Nitros kits, turbo kits and other complex mods available.  By the way, some of the body kits for the Celica are fantastic looking.  All in all, the Celica is a very sporty vehicle to tune and definitely gives any tuner a good return on their investment.
