Aww that would be lethal =), I was thinking of putting a Caldina box behind the Celica motor, gear ratios are different, i can easily put a Caldina sideways, had a lil more difficulty in the celica, so must be different final drive.

Aww good to see another 165 around haha, ill search it up when I can.

Aww not really looking to remove gearbox/diff unless I have to haha, not the nicest job, so probally wouldn't be to interested unless price was right, and was availiable for when I do my clutch or something.

Hey Vinnie - Haven't seen any on the roads - but I know of at least 3 in chch - mine, my 2nd one which my son bought off me & the Red one that was on t/me.

There is a white one in Dunedin for sale & imagine there are possibly a few more around here and there.

Great cars!

Cheers,
Mark

Aww they certainly are, Ive noticed st185's are probably more common then any others.
I was lucky enough to gain possesion of ST165, which i believe is the only one in Northland, Im just trying to rebuild it atm, turbo was blown when I got it, so decided to do new turbo, exhaust, IC, Intake etc, and make it good =) Ill have to post some pics up when I can.

Cheers

What up! I'm in Auckland as well, I've seen/ caught up with a couple other GT4 owners here. If you Aucklanders/ anyone close go to any of the Altezza club meets or most other meets I will normally be there.

St185 RC on Tm for $3500
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing ... =544656329

I've seen it before and it isn't in the best condition. Was painted horribly inside previously and the paint job needs some work. Was debating buying it, but realised that I'm building something far better haha
