Last time I checked they were right around 6k for a set of DMS 50mm.

I would recommend JVAB 50mm if you are looking to buy new.

I recommend you talk to others at Sandblast about replacement options then decide. All major suspencion manufacturers have Celica application. Depends on how much you plan to run and what you expect from your shocks. There are many rally gravel options. None of them are ever discussed on this forum for various reasons.

Got the shocks done over the weekend. We put in fresh grease, installed new seals, bump stops, and larger breathers. Almost ready for Sandblast!

Knocked out a few more things:

Wiper nozzles were upgraded to Ford F 250 units and added a third nozzle. I had also bridged the rear pump in for more pressure.

The E55 intercooler pump was not enough flow so I am upgrading it with a bilge unit.

Added screen to the heat exchanger.

Are you using those nozzles to cool IC radiator?

They are just for clearing the windshield. A couple of sprayers on the heat exchanger would be a decent thing to have though.

Ok.

If you want to install sprayers to cool down the IC radiator. st205 WRC ( limited edition road car) came with this stock. ( not activated.) These are still sold from toyota, These where put there for homogenization rules ( same as the Antilag setup witch might be a nice mod for your car.. )

Cool I didn't realize Toyota still sold that stuff.

Antilag technology has changed a bit since those days so I would most likely run a more modern system if I decide to go that route.

We are running a form of Antilag this year..

Dude that suspension is seriously BA! Do you have any more specifics on it?

History has shown that with antilag available you may be better off with front mount air/air intercooler. Fewer parts and more efficient. With your fab capabilities you can do very good intake piping. All Toyota rally users recommend that by now. Unless you have a works car and want to keep it original. Intercooler water spray is all that is needed. This may have been talked about before. Sorry if I missed it.
