    I had a underdrive crank pulley, took it off because oil was leaking and i didn't feel like replacing the seal.

    But I am running a celica gt intake manifold + throttle body and a throttle body spacer. It sure made a difference.

    Here is a vid of mine.


    And a vid of a friend's corolla. His mods at the time were 'celica intake manifold/throttle body, cold air intake, underdrive crank pulley, 2.25" hi flow cat to 2.5" exhaust'


    Oh and I have a modified ecu and he had a celica gt ecu
