They are normally not too difficult to find. Best advice is to go on Celica Club for 2 reasons:

1) 140's & 190's are regularly broken on the site - speak to Ams or Nix.

2) If you want to supercharge, you need to speak to Se7en Motorsports - oh plus you'll need a good £4-5k handy for all the work.

The reason for the high cost is:

Prepping the car for the extra power - lowering, tyres, brakes - all are needed.

Supercharger kit

Tune

Extra Insurance

Supercharging is great fun, but it's not cheep to do & the car isn't cheap to run afterwards.
