Project: Rebirth and Reinvention ST185

Postby InitialD93 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:15 pm

Well its been a long time since ive been on here, there are probably a few that remember me but most will not... I was here day one of the rebirth of this forum

Well long story short... My car became a problem child and a money pit... And the dream had to be put on indefinate hold when i left to go to school in 2006... It hasnt ran since then because alot of life has been in the way... Hasnt gotten much better but the money flow has improved. Well i will probably anger alot of purists here but i lost my faith in the 3S platform long ago, so here we go 7 or 8 years later its time for rebirth... Not the same as before, but with a new mission and alot more working knowledge and experience to feed the fire.

So lets start from here... April 1 2013... April Fools day to some...

Your old wheels were much nicer, what happened?

So you have a 5k budget. Whats planned? You know you can run 275s in the rear pretty easy.

Still have the old wheels, you can kind of see them in the background of the first pic, just have the Prius wheels on there for storage purposes

LSX 6.0 RWD is the plan... May end up being an auto temporarily just to get the swap done and running, much easier and cheeper to find the auto-trans than a t-56 in good shape... Just depends on how cheep i find my engine and wiring set up, if it starts life as an auto it will eventually get returned to manual later

Just a heads up, Justin Simpson's v8 celica uses the stock alltrac rear end, so that might save you some trouble in coming up with a solution. Also, there is a pretty big market of wider wheels in 5x100, so you might find some rear wheels that go with the ones you have to get more rubber on the ground. His build is on photobuckets so you can see some of his fabrication. I bet you are going to have to mess with the fire wall some.

Do have to ask, why not the 1UZ? Cheaper or availability? Or just cause?

Either way, good luck with the project.

Going LSX because there is plenty of supply and is proven reliable and easy to work on, like i said i have a budget to get this done, and its a proven transplant i to just about everything so finding adapters/parts/accys will be easy to find

When I talked to him, he told me he was using a stock rear end and was ruining axle splines. That was a few years back, and he may have changed since then.
