I got it off of eBay, GSP IIRC, first one that came up cheap with good reviews.

Basically the fittings are too small, going from 16mm to about 9. I could blow through it fine even with 2 18" vac hoses attached. Removed it and retightened the valve cover and the problem went away. I am also around 100 miles and need to retorque after the build.

A few not so great night pics of her all cleaned up and ready to be shipped.

I included a pic of the Fiat Coupe, BF (Baby Ferrari), my wonderful little DD. It's just the 1.8L, really wish it was the 20v Turbo!

Also a few goodies, can't wait to install them!

I I finally got around to installing the coilovers. I'll have to play with the settings to find what works best for me. Pics:

I started by measuring the struts and deciding on a length of the new strut
Image

I adjusted both struts to the same length (1 inch lower) and tightened the lower ring
Image

Installed
Image

Let them settle and took pics
Dirty
Image

Clean

I think i'll go 1" lower in front and half in back.

Thanks, hoping I can get a stance similar to yours w/o rubbing. I'm contemplating taking a sawzall to the rear fender lip since rolling didn't help much...

If I could had done it again, I would have cut off the rear fender lip. I have no clearance issues in the rear though even with it rolled. What size, et, and spacer did you go with?

Summer setup is 255 35 on 18x9.5, 45et with 25mm spacer in rear.

Winter setup is 225 45 on 17x7.5, 35et with 25mm spacer out back.

Made it to Germany, update coming soon...

I made it! The Alltrac is a BEAST on the Autobahn!

So after a few weeks of solid driving, I decided to ship the car from Italy to Germany instead of driving it. When I got to the inspection, it failed due to the power steering not working. I could not order and get a pump in time so I decided to ship the Fiat and drive the Celica. Only prob was I didn't plan to drive it and had to buy winter tires on the economy last minute--very expensive. The tires came in the day before I left, and the headlights got stuck down, ruining my plans to leave at zero-dark thirty. By the time I left (0900) the headlights decided to come up, but they were stuck up which was fine with me. The different gases caused the car to jerk or smoke for a few mins at idle, which became normal after the build. By the time I got to Germany, I had faith in the car and took her up to about 160kph. She pulled pretty hard on what I thought was WG boost (9-10psi). Once here, I tried pulling and plugging the vacuum hose off the turbo pressure sensor only to find she hit fuel cut even with that off. From what I read, I may have a short in the PIM circuit. I'll look for that once I got a place with a garage.

I drove the whole way with the OEM end links disconnected from the strut after the coilover install--adjustable ones didn't come before I moved out of the house. What I found today while removing the oem and installing the adj is I could just put a vice grip in the middle where the grommet is instead of using the stripped/rusted hex key hole. Worked like a charm. Would have been nice to know before the 2 hours of hacking through the first one.

The car feels more planted compared to when the end links were disconnected. I'll wait for a clear day to give it a full test.

Thanks for the base map Luke, I'll let you know how it works out hopefully within a month!

Looking good. Did you end up going any lower?

Not yet, I rolled the rear fenders and lowered the front what I thought was a half inch but it still sits the same.

Seems like if a car is older or appears to be modified the German guy here at vehicle inspections will look for a reason to fail you. They put the car on a lift with hydraulics that jerk the wheels left and right to see if the power steering works. It failed so I ordered a PS pump, took it to a mechanic and had it repaired. Drove the car for 2 weeks while waiting for rear brake pads, no leaks whatsoever. Took the car back to inspections and he had this machine jerk the wheels back and forth until he saw a drip forming. It never actually dripped from the car over the course of about 4 minutes, but he failed me anyway. While waiting for another PS pump, I installed my CEIKA BBK. I also found a hairline crack on my WTAIC, which may be why I can't hit target boost. These wheels only clear the calipers by 1mm w/o spacer. I have a 3mm spacer but would like to know what you guys think is acceptable. I'd rather not run the spacer up front.

1mm should be plenty of clearance. The wife's car has the same clearance on her Stoptech bbk.

Still making progress, slowly but surely.

I temp installed the IAT and MAP sensors and she fired up and idled smooth on the AEM EMS so I proceeded with some parts :D

Here's how she sits now:

This was the best way i could figure to mount the FMIC core...also got radiator fan brackets supporting the bottom from the subframe.
Image

Japspeed exhaust manifold with KORacing kit w/DBB PTE 5858 CEA, TCS Motorsports 4" intake and Buschur Racing battery.
Image

I used gates hose 21591 because it had the bends to go over the TCS intake. It's about an inch short so cut and extend it with some 30mm OD pipe.
Image

I'm waiting for a 30mm socket to change the oil drain fitting. I'll test it like this and tackle the manifold, TB and injectors after everything checks good.

I did a lot of research and didn't find much so this is for help with searches:
I had to use a modified OBX 5SFE .4" thick flange between the manifold and head to get clearance between the compressor housing and tranny because the turbo was hitting or touching the transmission and clutch slave cylinder hard lines. I sandwiched the flange between two gaskets. Stock manifold did not leave enough threads to torque but the japspeed mani with thinner flange does. I have 2-3 mm clearance from the clutch lines, and heat wrapped them like in KORacing instructions with the shield from the A/C lines (A/C removed). If the clutch line were to crack as some on MR2OC mentioned, I'd try the W58 MK3 Supra clutch line from driftmotion and run the line up and behind the starter.

Update!

Done for the most part but i may have messed up some wiring in doing so. I'm having the same issues as i did before the starter relay mod. Once i get that worked out i'll have to figure what route to take for the tune, then see what this beast can do!
