Talk about the other Celica models

Just wanted to introduce myself and my car. I've been a lurker around here for many years but I've been a regular member over at 6gc.net since early '03 or so.
My car, "Elise", is a '94 Celica GT with a '93 JDM GT4 RC 3S-GTE swap [I hear you call us halftracks LOL - we prefer the term GT2 :D ] and tons of nice mods to the engine as well as interior, exterior audio/video etc. The interior/exterior mods are all stock Toyota/TRD from various models - no bodykit stuff for me. My DD is a '93 Lexus LS400 "Marilyn" but I hardly ever drive her - the GT2 is too much fun. Tho I probably should.
Here is my list of mods for anyone who cares:

And probably a few things here or there that I may have forgotten. So yeah she's a bit hooked up. :D
Additionally, I'm proud to say I'm a friend of Darthripley and Justjoe - Hi ya'll.
This is my 6th Celica and my second swap so I'm pretty well versed in Celicas, MR2's, Supras and various other Toyotas.
Anyway - enough about me, here's a few pictures of my girl Elise:

Thanks ya'll. Actually I like your ride quite a bit too. The first swap I ever did [with the help of a local alltrac friend] was in my '86 GTS - we swapped in a '90 3S-GTE. She was pretty quick but I went through 2 3S-GTE's in like 3 years so sadly I let her go. This was back in '98 or so. Ever since then I've been all about the 6gc and since they didn't grace us with the GT4 here I settled for the next best thing. I've done the 5S-FTE successfully on my previous '99 but someone rearended me and so that car was wasted. So now I'm finally back to the 3S-GTE and loving every minute of it. I've spent close to $15K on this car just in the last year so she gets the attn she deserves. :wink:

No Dyno numbers yet. Actually, much to the chagrin of many 6gc.net members, Elise is still running on stock boost [8psi] altho the boost controller is installed. I just know all to well the boost greed thing and I'm trying to get all the fun I can out of her and most importantly get her running 100% perfectly before I start pushing her.
I'm about ready for my baseline Dyno and in fact it's already paid for with Turbochargers.com which is just down the road.
I guess all I can say is check back with me - she will be getting dyno'd and I will be getting my 1/4mile times tho I really didn't build this car for 1/4miles - more of a road race car.

LegacyofDan - thanks. It's quite a compliment to have my car be someone's background :D

Couple more pics:
This is an old one but here you can see I've replaced my PS side airbag with a 7" widescreen

now that is a cool idea i have yet to think of....replace the airbag with a vid screen, i most certainly like that idea, very slick indeed! and no problem bro, i'm a huge fan of my lil ST165, but also i just love the looks of the 94-98 celicas(so long as they have a turbo ;)), that when i see a keeper, i have to wall paper it and adore it for a while :)

Like all my mods, the patented SRS Audio/Video setup [ 8) ] I made myself from hand bending the aluminum bezils on the sides to mounting/hingeing of the screen itself. Currently I'm working on getting it to raise and lower by itself. Think I've settled on using a pop trunk actuator to motorise it and wire it to the DVD players remote output so that when you turn on the DVD the screen will raise and turn on automatically and turnoff and lower as well. It's a WIP.
I love me a nice ST16x - how do I see ya'lls cars? Do we not have profiles here? How would anyone know what each other has otherwise?
:doh: I still miss my '86 GT2 - hurts a bit worse now that I see all these nice alltracs

Edit: vvv cool - got my sig to work vvv

Great to see you here Death - Welcome! :D

yes we commonly refer to fwd swaps as halftrac's here lol
GT2 is a cool way to put it also ... sort of made me think of Aliens when Ripley calls Bishop an android & he says "I prefer the term artificial person" :wink:

be sure & check out the Project section so you can see everyone's build threads - they are all nicely organized in one section here :)

Thanks - it's one part Celica, one part MR2T and one part SupraT. It's really just a prototype for the custom badge I'll eventually have made. It's meant to be reminiscant of the Celica GT4 GrA Ralley Badge but will look moreso when I get the custom one made.

rotaryae86 - Soon. I just got the car for a song so currently awaiting plates cause the local police like to pull young guys in Lexus [Lexii?] over on suspicion. So far I've just added an expensive two-way pager alarm to it since the Celica sleeps in the garage and I've got the two usual 1st gen LS gremlins to deal with: The blinking gauge cluster and the blown rear airbag which makes the ride oh so enjoyable - like riding a horse or something.
Just got the SS-III red and black seats in, hit a snag and had to hit the junkyard cause the seatbelt clickers on JDM SS-III's are evidently different than the USDM GT's. :doh: Strange things you find when you modify. Unfortunately there was a gigantic rip in the rear seat that was not visible until I unwrapped the package so, being the completionist that I am, I'll be looking out for a new bottom rear seat.
I'll post pics later today or tomorrow - they look soooo sweet

Thanks for the welcome ya'll - now time to go test the IAC valve [Thanks for the info Ripley]
