My mainstream Celica

Postby Empiremen » Sat Feb 07, 2015 2:02 am

Alright guys finally I'm starting my thread... After 2 and half owning a real GT4 and 4 year messing with GT4, I have the courage to speak in english in this website (I'm born french with no english culture whatsover).


(Update 23th September 2015)

I have a regular JDM St185 NB 1991 body swapped with a St205 engine and tranny.

I've done quite a lot on this car but I have still a LOT to do.

My mod:

Engine/Transmission
-I still have the Chargecooler
-Converted HKS blowoff valve to a dumpvalve
-WRC cam (I think) (Not installed)
-Mishimoto Rad + Fan
-ACT clutch 500lbs 6 puck with spring
-St205 torsen
-Complet rebuiled engine with all new Toyota Gasket and new bearing and ring
-Ct21b from ATS Racing
-Custom mid pipe from AP Performance
-Perfect fit Denso Fuel pump (Supra TT)

-Code 54 solved

Engine Oil: 5w40 winter 10w40summer Mobil/Amsoil/Castrol

Transmission oil: 75w90 Amsoil Severe gear. (Best oil that I used so far)

Chassis

-A "Big brake conversion" of a canadian st184. I got rid of the 2piston 1piston jdm brake
-Aerocatch hood pin
-Complet polyurethane bushing for the rear subframe and diff cushion from GT4 Racing

Brake / Clutch fluid : Ford DOT 3 brake fluid

Interior

-Autometer gauge Sport Comp I + pod
Oil pressure (Stepper motor)
AFR analog
Boost gauge (Mechanical)


Now the thing I need to do....

- New front pad
- Technafit Stainless Steel lines
- New suspension
- New wheels

My real problem is that I don't have anywhere hot to work. I'm stuck outside with the cold. I have pretty much all the part that I need to have a fully functionnal St185. I just don't have the "heat" and kinda the time. I also I'm really freaking broke, so I cannot ask a mechanic...

Quick update since I have nothing better to do at school! sike..

The car have been running really great since spring. I daily drive the celica for most of the summer without any drama.

Now, I will store my love for the winter. And next spring, I'm gonna get some coilover. I'm thinking buying some flatout coilover since they have a full 5 years warranty.

And I will run a new setup. Gonna try some Matrix trd 17" inch wheel with some DW or So4 in 225/45. Really excited to see how it will look!

Soon I'm going to show my gauge setup and my subframe GT4 racing "refurbish"!

Damn 2016 Empiremen was lazy!!!! So lets summarize 2016.

Brand new stuff
-Michelin Pilot Super Sport
-Custom Air intake by myself
-Flatout Coilover (I need to do a review on those)
-Matrix 17" (Those thing are ugly but cheap)
-Custom 3 inch exhaust (this things is awesome)
-Turbosmart BOV

I've done my first initation in lapping and that was great! I had a lot of fun and blew up my 2 front wheel bearings but worth it.
