Guess whose back? Back again

Wow, so after over 6 years I finally broke down and bought a mid career reward for myself. I got another 1990 Celica Alltrac that I am planning on doing the RC conversion and finishing the restoration on.

I didn't stray too far from the community, I have been stuck on building boosted 4Runners.

Thanks. I just got it this week and went out and bought the RC hood and JDM lights. I still had some of the RC stuff spare from my old car that was ready to install. I hung on to it hoping that one day I would get another one. I am just going to keep it as stock as possible and continue to fix the things that need replaced on it.

My 4Runner is an 05 4x4 sport that I supercharged for my birthday last year. I have a Icon dual shock system and it is my ovelanding vehicle that I explore with. I have a build thread on toyota120 that you are welcome to check out as well as my youtube channel. Please check them out if you have time.

The only thing I miss is the dry lake bed.

Clean AT. Keep an eye on intake temps though, with that hood/stock intercooler combo..

The primered one with the FMIC? I saw that one too. Congrats on your purchase too. I knew this one wouldn't last at that price.

Thanks I was looking for a W2A intercooler for it, however the 4runner had other ideas for my budget this weekend. :cry:
Yeah, I will keep an eye on them. Thanks.

There is a lot of black rc conversions. I think you should sell it to me :) not enough medium red pearls with that conversion.
