My 1990 Celica GT Four (RC Conversion)

Postby Redswan » Sat Apr 19, 2014 12:03 am

So, after 6 long years I couldn't fight the urge any more. The perfect deal on a great Alltrac came up and I jumped on it. I picked up this beautifully maintained car with only 122k miles on it. I set out with completing the restoration where the previous owner let off and decided to do another RC conversion while trying to maintain it as a reliable mostly stock daily driver. Since then I have swapped in a JDM RC Engine and Tranny. I bought a ViS RC/CS hood, JDM corner lights. I still had a RC badge set and some other HKS parts lying around all these years. I also picked up an RC intercooler here on the board and paired it with a bosch cobra water pump and a front mount W2A heat exchanger. I purchased a Momo 4 spoke steering wheel like the ones in the RC and a Momo Anatomic leather shift knob. The car runs almost perfect and looks pretty good.

So, I replaced the oil pump because of a leak and after 4 tries the oil pan is still leaking. :(
The tranny syncros are toast in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. So i decided to break down and cough up $1800 for a RC 3sgte and tranny which should be delivered next week.

Image

I picked up a used HKS muffler and plan on having the exhaust redone after I get the engine and tranny sorted out.

Image

I also found a sweet deal on a 4 peice set of SPARCO pedals with the engraved Carlos Sainz signature on them!

Will do. I won't need two of them at any point. I'll send you a PM once I get my stuff together. I would like to get $200 plus actual shipping for the I/C.

I fit it up to the stock rubber throttle inlet, it took a little stretching, but it was pretty easy.

It should be here next week.

Nice looking car. :) I love these in black. And I love the cloth that came in them in 90.

The RC IC is a decent bit bigger than the regular 185 TB inlet.
But the 165 inlet is the same as the RC inlet. No sense in wrestling with the smaller one. :)

^This...and the mounting bracket/engine hanger is a must to get the intercooler to mount properly, everything else is pretty easy from there 8)
