Well passed smog at DMV and all is back together finally. Roughly 90 or so miles on it so far. Not 100% happy with alignment but it will live for a few months till I replace tires and re-check rear suspension. I may have to replace the spherical bushing things in the back ... We will see. That is all till after Christmas ... Everyone have a safe holiday season ! :smokes:

Oh man I know. I miss mind every damn day! Nothing else even comparable IMO to the alltracs and the sound of a 3s. [ASTONISHED FACE]

Thanks man. I kinda lied a little when I said " That's it till after Christmas " I threw a Aussie exhaust tail section on it yesterday mainly cause I had a leak around the rear axle. I bought exhaust prior to my engine issue and has been in back of my truck for almost a year ... Now this is really it till after holidays. Also trying to find a house in the middle of everything else ... time is tight but still finding time to wrench on and enjoy my baby :smokes:

I plan to load some exhaust pics up this week. I still have to modify and install midpipe which I already have but was setup on a 165 with a different downpipe so yet more modification. Getting a new phone and you know the deal there with pictures ...

Plans for the new year are mainly to move and get settled ... as for car I have a set of U.K. folding mirrors to have painted and start saving to redo my seats which took a back burner to my engine this year .... I almost pulled the whole year plan off ... ehhh maybe next year :rofl: :roll:

Not much has been going on ... been covered in snow for the most part of 6 weeks ...

Image

Prior to that managed to get the exhaust tail section on ...

Image

Its a 185 tail section so it didn't center up to the back well but I still have to do the center section so I'll mess with it more then ...

Image

No pics but threw some new tires at it too ... Went with a sumitomo that I had a really good used pair of so I matched them.

Currently working on changed my temp gauge setup from the intercooler to the engine and adding a digital temp gauge to monitor the intercooler temp ... Just because ... lol

Re: 88gt4de Project ... MORE gauges ! Dash mat ... 3/30/14

Postby 88gt4DE » Sun Mar 30, 2014 2:14 pm

So I finally got the chance in between snow storms to actually drive the car and do a few things. With the up coming Fredericksburg VA car show I wanted to finish a couple more things. When I had installed the gauges I wanted a temp gauge to monitor the intercooler temp. I realized after I installed the needle type gauge that the range was too high for the gauge to tell me what I wanted to know. I wanted to stay with all the same brand Autometer Cobalt. I decided to go to a digital gauge to monitor the intercooler and move the gauge I already installed to monitor the engine temp. I wanted another one on the engine anyway since I had an older celica that the factory gauge didn't even work. It took awile to decide on the correct digital temp gauge since the range on alot of them didn't start at "0" or some were in Celcius. So closest one to meet my needs was Autometer 6937. Only problem was it didn't match. SOOO I stumble upon an Autometer custom gauge thread and here she is ...

Image

Now my bigger problem is where the heck am I gonna put it ? I didn't want to lose the lighter hole cause I actually need it to charge phone etc etc ... went with this :smokes:

Image

Got tired of looking at the star crack in the middle of my dash. My girl got me this for Christmas which someone was caught trying to steal on the doorstep after it was delivered. Good luck trying to find someone with a 4th gen Celica to sell it too .... LOL

Image

After meet I would like to get my center exhaust section in , re-install the FCD and set up boost controller. Still saving up for seats. Really that's all my goals for this year ... seems achievable right ? Because Alltrac ... :rofl: Ain't happening .... :crazy: :bangshead:
