    Doubt it, the oem brakes on those weren't particularly amazing, though you could run celica brakes for a little boost. I think you should get it just for the look of complete dismay on the faces of anyone one pulled up next to at a stoplight...
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Yes,

    My old dually spent a lot of time above four grand, you could drive it home.

    Pay for it selling drift vidoes. Dress all period, I'm thinking ala Bestie Boys Sabotage video. Get someone with a Starsky and Hutch car to chase you. You could be a star son.
