New member from Lancaster, PA

Postby comander1097 » Sun Sep 10, 2017 11:58 am

Hi all,
I am a new member from Armish County, Lancaster PA.
I purchased a 1990 Celica All-trac in June 2017 from CA, which has 112K mileage. The body color is blueish grey.
This car is my dream car since 1990 after I watched documentary tv "1990 Monte Carlo Rally race" in Japan.
This documentary TV was a story of Mitsubishi VR4. However, Carlos Sainz drove a ST165 GT-four. Then, I purchased white ST162 at that time because GT-four was still expensive. I sold it in a year. Since then, I was away from sport car world nearly 27 years. Finally, I purchased my dream car here in US. (Yeah!)
I am so excited to be a part of family member of this club.

My car is still good condition, however, there is high pitch noise from engine after engine warms up. According to Toyota, T-VIS(Air intake control valve) 17300-88381 needs to be replaced. However, this parts is already discontinued. Did someone have same problem before? I am not sure what option I have. If I cannot find the part, I may want to swap engine to RC model or ST205 motor because I want to transform to RC style.
Does someone know any good engine swap shop near my area? I assume that there is good shop in West coast but I do not know east coast.
Anyway, I am looking forward to communicating with you in this forum.
Thank you.
