89 convertible swap???

Postby celicaaddict » Mon Feb 05, 2007 9:06 pm

im new to this site,so ill introduce myself my name is dominick and im from ny,i 1st had a 88 celica automatic...that was wrecked ...then i got an 89 alltrac from a junkyard n put it back together (doors fenders n lights n wheels)
ran great after i put a centerforce dual friction clutch in it..
then a year later i got on it from 1st to 2nd n i got a ton of white smoke fill up in the car and it wouldnt start...so i left it for 30 mins and it started right up ....i didnt have time to look into it cuz i was working so i put it my yard for a while n my mom forced me to sell it for like 1300 running fine btw.....now i have the 89 black convertible...but i miss my alltrac ....so my plan is to make my 89 convertible into a turbo swap..

.I added the rear spoiler/wing from a regular gt.looks nice with the convertible...anyways does anyone know where i can get the alltrack sideskirts and bumpers??
Or any other kits than that damn "kaminari" that are everywhere out there and obtainable?

Also i was thinking of swapping it with an alltrac motor n making it a turbo convertible :) does it bolt to the gt non turbo tranny?
i would need to change the wiring harnesses,cpu and engine is all i know.What are some other things i may be overlooking im sure there are many...

You should be able to use the same transmission. You can in the fifth generation swaps.

You can use the FE Tranny and it will all swap to the existing mounts.

I f you looking to swap the GTE into the Convertable youll have to do some Harness wiring I would and can only suggest to do alot of research on the wiring and dont half ass you shit-.... :doh:
