can we say new bulge in the good?

or a hole...

does it look like there is enough room to modify the wg pipe to clear the st185 hood? say a cut and reweld?

If it can be done for the td06 it can certainly be done for a Garrett setup.

For the life of me I don't understand why any of the three companies mentioned in this thread haven't made one just for Celicas. Only Aaron and to a lesser extent Bill have made solutions but using the TD06
as the platform.

I.E., there's a few bucks to be made by someone enterprising enough to do this. Unfortunately, welding is not my strong suite.

You could sell a few not only here, but all over the world (Ebay)... :wink:

"The kit includes a manifold adapter, which is CNC machined from a solid steel billet and bolts to the stock manifold to retain OEM reliability. The other components include a full 3" mandrel bend down pipe with integrated 1.5" diameter wastegate dump tube, with it's own flex section, a Tial 38mm external wastegate,and all lines, gaskets, and mounting hardware needed to install the kit. "


Yes, it's a turbo kit.

The market is simply waaaay to small to develop ST185-specific parts. Generally, the parts available to us are largely available because they happen to interchange with the SW20 (although the Aussie downpipe is a weird exception....it was developed for the 165/185 first and then found to fit the SW20). If you tried to build a business off of custom parts for the GT-Four in the US, you'd be toast very quickly.

My $.02....based on selling Aussie Exhaust to GT-Four and SW20 owners for the last three years.

Your $.02 is worth a lot more here. Good point. Nice job to explain it a bit further. It sucks that there is a small market for our cars; but that is what makes them special right? :)

There will be better things to come. We are slowly gathering more attention. More and more, quote on quote, "regular" guys are going with a stand alone, etc.

Yes the ATS looks to be the best path for the All-Trac, you can get just the adapter and WG for the 185 I think I paid $600 for it. You can get somebody like ATS to make you a DP for a T3 and you could have the wide selection of turbo sizes with the T3, only thing I have heard is the T04S compressor housing may interfere with the transmission(don't quote me on that).

Click below for the ATS kit with my TD06.

I'm putting together my own turbo kit package in the sub 2000 range. If anyone is in the market and would like to help develop it, let me know. The best I can offer you is free labor which will lower the kit price some. The nice part is ST165 and ST185 specific kits.

Sounds great..

I'm looking for two things:

Proven
Quality

so far the TD-06 kit is in the lead.. battling neck and neck...
