HA, your not going to find that on here. Better check out AWE tunning or a toyota forum. Are you looking for performance or OEM?

check and see if AWE tunning will burn you an OEM copy. should be like $20 from AWE for a burnt OEM chip, or like $200 at the dealer. You can get a performance one from AWE for around $80-$110 and it is no joke. Your looking at +5-9 HP and about 5-10 lb/tq. Your going to have to use premium unleaded tho :x

Yea, I agree with Jack. If you want to find something specific to your car, your best bet is to look at forums specifically for your car.

OEM = Original Equipment Manufacturer

Performance parts are self-explanatory. They're supposed to make your car perform better. OEM parts are the parts that the manufacturer fits into/onto the car as it's rolling through the assembly line.

magnus, you can always try looking in scrap yards. I don't know how many there are in your area, but you should be able to get your part real cheap if you manage to find what you're looking for in the junkyard.

Thanks for all the help people. But I think this car is through with its life and I dont want to give it life again and drive around in a zombie. I am ditching it in a scrapyard and am getting me a nice big KIA or Hyundai SUV. Stickshift probably.

:( I loved my Celica :cry:

Way to support the middle eastern man :lol: j/k
Nissan makes excellent trucks/suvs but there not always cheap and most of them are available or are only available in a 5 spd manual

Is your ECU OK? A damaged coil pack can damage the ECU, good thing you finally replaced it. You get any more HP?
BTW, i never knew 4 cyl clicas had the coil pack, i thought they just had a coil. Glad to have another 5spd back on the road 8)

I think its just one coil, no distributor and all that, 'Coils' just sounds better so I wrote it as such. I will drive around tonight to see whether ECU is OK

Great, do that. You know the funny thing is my ignition coil went out today, and i think its been out for a while. I touched it and it shocked the hell out of me, so i better grab one too.
