So while my caldina is on her holding skids, got the celica fixed up with some new parts. new p/s rack with new tie rod ends, took me forever cause it looks as if it was the factory one, so bolts were "welded" on there. put in new injectors, modified my fuel rail to the "8mm" side feed, 205 pressure reg. and all that stuff. when i had it dynoed it went lean for the first 1.5k rpm, it also felt as if i had vtec when boosting...was the injectors, was going to have them flow tested cause they say 6XXcc on the top....but i dont think thats the flow, or they are way dirty. car seems so much better. smooth and no lag feel.

on the caldina motor, still waiting on the harness and ecu. dont really have the means of putting it in right this min. so im buyen stuff for the stockie for now which is working out so far. wanting to do mls head gasket here next month...haha that's in four days. my new "big"...ger turbo will be here tomorrow after noon sometime. very happy with this guy knew his stuff very well, i will post more once i get it and install it. factory rebuild on ct26/20b is $275...upgrade to ct27 and bigger is $475 free clipping if you ask. and this is on exchange ONLY. cores i dont now

along came a clutch, and then...



i pulled my motor to do a basic clutch, bought the rear main seal thinking it would be a good idea....from 800 ish to well i thnk im upto 2000 before the engine build now.

clutch and fly was $744
rear main seal and plate gasket $30
all factory timing stuff, tbelt water pump seals ect. $197
head gasket $250 with arp studs
completed bottom end build........NO idea as the guy just got it today. he is the local builder for trd -baja. i honestly dont mind spending the money, but this all started with a clutch

long story short, did the timing belt back in july and NOTHING under the timing covers were leaking...every seal, water pump and bearing is BAD. lol i always tell my customers that this happens. it all started with i got a wild hair and wanted to look and see how everything looked under there cause the cover was wet. turned out the two cam seals i didnt touch or have issues were coming out. then i thought time to install the cames, shoot having those off might as well pull the head for the mls head gasket. called my machine guy..."why not do the pistons and rods ect" all i see is nothing in my hand....money and car. and here i was to be getting a house. :cry:

well the st215 motor will not be used.

#deleted pix links as they are no longer good...#

this is some pictures from my engine rebuild project. bent the down pipe when off roading.(using the car)

this shows the center feed issue when i pulled the turbo off. cyl 2&3 showing lean...



getting tired of people wanting to street race, and dont want to hack up the dash(near perfect) and having issues turning the wheel with the gauge pod in the way.



the front mout was great looking and worked well, but where i drive it took too long to cool at times, and is huge and bolted up with minor mods


ill post the pictures from my blue berry in a min.
