Yeah, maybe like 2600-2700 lbs.

Doesn't really matter what kind of power your FC makes, it is the prettiest in the country.

Nah, didn't Google. I just know the Cosmo weighs the same as an S4 Base. But, you added a few extra pounds with the turbo driveline parts.

It's flat because the upper line is reading AFR and the scaling is weird. Torque is not on that graph.

But yeah, the AFRs are solid and consistent, and thats nice.

looks like you need to raise the rev limiter to 8k to have your upshift be better in the powerband. 8k@175whp is not going to hurt a T2 trans in the slightest.

LOL, You're telling me?! ! Last I remember, I felt as though it would take the act of congress to make the change when I asked for it to be bumped up when we were at DGRR. Anywho, I believe it is set at 8 but never reached the limiter.

I'd like to weigh it for the hell of it. I did this years ago with my old gutted '89 on a friends scales he used for his late-model, mine was a near perfect ~49/51 ratio and weighed around 2k. With everything leading up to this being said, it doesn't actually change the weight of the car

Also, not much can be done without coilovers. My Celica on the other hand could probably use some corner balancing though. .

No reason, I just ended up with KYB AGXs and RB springs and have been content with them since. I have only considered changing them once when I wanted different wheels and that was due to tire options or lack thereof but I found some and both the wheels and suspension stay

^This. That's the same setup I have on my T2 and I love it. Also got the ES urethane bushing set & the Racing Beat DTSS eliminator bushings and called it a day. Stock T2 F & R sway bars.
