90half trac Rebuild W/ ST215 FWD trans swap **PICS**

Postby celica_gtx » Sun Jul 29, 2012 4:30 am

Alright so im doing a full rebuild on my 90 2gen 3s in my 90GT
BC of a horrible oil leak and tons of blow by.. so
i got a deal on a kit to swap in a 215 fwd trans swap that is LSD
now there is alot of debate if it is or not, i have spun it myself and wheels spin the same way.
the bar is visible thro the diff.. yet what caught my eye is my old S54 trans has a bar aswell
but tires spin opposite way.

so to make this work u need the trans of course but,
alltrac N-S Xmember
Alltrac outters and mr2 lsd inners (alltrac is needed bc of carrier bearing only matches to mr2 on pass side)
Alltrac shift cables
alltrac front motor mount
Alltrac clutch & flywheel still work

ive got tons of pics and im still in the process of this build

***if u want to see the build of my eng by robert another member on alltrac.net, heres the link..

turbo re-build n upgraded.. "larger t04e compressor wheel of your choice (we recommend t04e 50 trim)
Upgrades also include machining the compressor housing and bearing housing to accept the larger compressor wheel.
We install larger 360 thrust bearing and stagger gap turbine side seal." <--as said by the shop..built by
performance techniques in SanBern, CA
also got is ceramic coated

And i decided to paint the eng bay aswell.

Cool pics man, love to see more.
How much power you hoping to squeeze out of the turbo ?
White exhaust valves arnt bad unless there is cracks or pitting.
Its usually just crud being burnt on/off while things are hot.

4of the exhaust valves were thin.. if u click the link u can
see my motor.
as for power im not to sure.
id want 300. it sounds good.. but if ill get there is another, i just want a fast/quick reliable DD
here is the list of mods ill have done by the end of the build

215 trans
Finanza 10lb Flywheel
exedy clutch and PrsP
turbo ofcourse
HKS adj cam gear only on exhaust side( which i want touch till she is broken in.)

then im thinkin of having the TVIS removed n have it just plate
and if i can find a 3sge intake mani

i already FMIC bar &plate, Walbro 255, straight intake, full exhaust & gutted cat, and MBC which i also wont touch till broken in.

got the motor back the other day looks awesome thanks robert..

Image

Image

shift cables side by side.. look the same different buckets
compared alike cables
alltrac top
Image
alltrac lower
Image

Image

idk who else has done swapped shifter cables but id rather not ever do it again..
after half of the dash was out

Image

Purple power bath
Image

so after tryin to put the trans on and it would sit flush
i figured out the i had put in the pilot bearing * NOT NEEDED*
I was a lil drunk, just use to using em. but i tried this method
wet shredded paper jamed into the cavity found bolt that fit
into the hole of the pilot bearing, tapped it in packin it. cont. to
shove more in. repeating till it started to move..

Image

Image

progress
Image

Image

out
Image


fits perfect now
Image

this bracket no longer work.. no threads in the trans
hole would be to big to match the bracket.
might drill the bracket to match or find a long enough nut/bolt combo

Damnit then its going to suck for me, I was able to remove most of everything in the way inside the car but now I feel like I'm going to have a problem with the one on the firewall

I have done the cable swap with the motor in on my 90 celica. It was a bitch.
