Hey guys! Sorry I havnt been keeping up with everything. I have alot going on in my life right now but im going to try to make it to the 6gen celica meet in May.

My alltrac is still on ice with a bad transmission and the VR4 is STILL in the way. I already have the new transmission for it but have to get the VR4 out of the way before I can do much. Not to mention I had another defib put in and cant lift anything heavy lol.

take it easy James - your health is more important than the cars.

we have tentatively set a date for the meet on Saturday May 9th.
the meeting place has not been determined & i haven't posted routes yet for the drive.

ok, the meet has been pushed back to June 6th which is fine with me since Vadar is leaking either PS fluid or oil from the front main seal or both.

here is the thread:

Ok im going to try to be there. I still have to pull the engine and swap transmissions but if everything goes well I will be in the alltrac. If not I will have to bring the VR4.

Who else is going to come?

Great James! Either in the Alltrac or VR4 glad to see that you can come out :D

We're coming in Vadar or if he can't make it, then we'll be in R2 & MixMaster is coming too in his '93 ST185 :)
An ST165 from Houston will be there also.

The date is officially going to be Saturday June 13th.
We are still trying to get the meeting place & cruise route finalized.

Let's get as many Alltracs as we can to come on down everyone! :D

I don't know if anyone's alltrac is running in the DFW area atm --- we are talking about alltrac's here lol

Hendrix - is Satan running?

Towels - you can come by & look at Vadar but he isn't running & won't be prolly right up till the meet w/the way things are going here at home w/Joe's work the way it is now & me doing side jobs.
He's getting closer, but still have a laundry list of junk to do before he can run again.
R2's running & of course so is the Camry :wink:

I hope all you guys make it down on the 13th. I want someone to drive mine.
It's backfiring at 2k rpms every once in a while. I replaced my plugs and have a new rotor but haven't installed it. Other than that, I only have a Supra TT fuel pump. The rail and fpr are both stock. I want someone to compare my car against theirs and see if mine is running right.

Towels if u mk it to Austin while your in TX let me know.

^ we'll make it for sure, even if we end up coming in R2 or worst case scenario - the Camry.

Paul - Are you running with any Cat converters?
When it backfires does it happen if you are hard on the throttle then get off abruptly?

Since you have a CT20b & we have an upgraded CT26 your Alltrac should feel very close to ours.

I've read in several places that the stock fuel rail cannot handle an upgraded fuel pump. you either need a better replacement rail or a bored out stock rail.
Not entirely sure if that is the cause of the backfiring - hard to say w/out looking at it.

I have the primary elbow off the turbo with the O2 sensor in it, then from there it's a Greddy 50mm midpipe, then straight 3" exhaust. No cat's unless there is one in that elbow.

It is usually after I've been driving around for a while and if I'm shifting slowly and let the rpms fall to 2k, it will backfire.

I may need to get bigger or bored fuel rail. The guy I got the car from had the Supra 550s in it, and it ran super boggy and would constantly backfire. I put in fresh 440s and it runs 1000000x better with now just the 2k rpm issue. I still have the stock TMIC so I turned the boost down to 10.5 and drive like a granny.

Definitely need you guys to take a look and listen, if you don't mind. My clutch is pretty heavy (ACT 6 puck copper ceramic and HD pressure plate) but I'm sure you guys are used to it. Thanks for the help!!

yeah we can definitely take a look, listen & drive - not a problem at all :)
clutch shouldn't be a prob as long as it's sprung.
the 2 worst feeling clutches i've ever felt/driven was a Cadillac CTS-V & a MKI MR2 S/C w/a 6puck unsprung clutch.
believe it or not the Exedy Hyper Single we have in Vadar is really easy & way lighter pedal feel than stock - the pedal springs back nicely.

ok, you are cat-less -- only reason i asked was b/c the car is more prone to backfire without any cats, but usually we only do it in higher rpm's & you have to get off the throttle abruptly after being all over it to get it to backfire.

you found out w/the 550's & no way to control the fuel the ECU flips out & the car runs badly.
i know ATS sells bored out rails (i think Speed Source does too) & it seems over on mr2oc.com there's always someone selling a wolfkatz rail for a decent price.
like i said not sure if that's truly the problem, but from what i have read it certainly couldn't hurt with the upgraded fuel pump.

That's a link to "Movie Tavern". I'm not sure what the address of the place I'm staying is, but that's about 5 minutes away.
