This engine is identical to the version found in the Celica
All-Trac Turbo. (yes, even the new one) TRD claims no difference
in power (and got pretty snippy when I asked, BTW). I've seen
articles examining the new 1996 Celica GT4 (Japan only) that claim
250 HP. Has modified head (larger valves), higher boost.
Boost gauge on the dash may show limited boost during cold
temperatures. Supposedly this is to prevent an overboost condition.

that tells the car that it's cold will be fooled into thinking it's
warmer than it is. This will allow you a brief period of full boost.
Japanese 1995 car claims 245 HP using 13psi boost, stock.
TRD gets pretty snippy if you ask them about this, too. Actually,
