Project "aRmo"

Postby aRmo » Fri Apr 04, 2014 5:40 pm

as some of you know i am new to the Alltrac world but not new to the toyota world. Recently picked up a 1991 celica alltrac, traded my honda civic for it. It has rust but i dont think its to bad. Its got some problems hitting fuel cut due to acouple vacuum leaks, found an exhaust leak aswell. This first turned out to be an emergency thread but started to make it a project thread instead. Dont plan to do much right now..just full exhaust and downpipe. Maybe a tune for 15psi and a FCD. i just want a dependable daily driver.

This reminds me of myself...not wanting to do anything crazy with my Trac, but eventually I lost all self control. HAHA. My advice, sink any dollar you would otherwise spend on modifications toward maintenance. Get it all fresh and running great with the rust and worn out parts dealt with. Learn as much as you can about how everything works, how to do the maintenance, then, if you really are interested in modifying it for a reasonable cost but without changing too many things(ecu etc), check out ATS Racing for their ROM tunes and upgrade packages. Keep it simple and it should be enjoyable and you'll have it on the road a lot.

That's sound advice. I've had a handful of setups and the most enjoyable ones have been the simplest with not a lot of HP. One thing that will make a world of difference is a good ECU.
