Due to lighting its hard to show, car has molded black carpet now and seats are being re-done in the coming week once carpet is done

I added sound deadening to the drivers door, fixed (lubed) window regulator and fixed the switch so auto down works flawlessly and fixed the up that was hard to push to get it to move.

Edfc installed, and hooked up.

Engine is sitting in a crate with all the parts needed to be put together. Sold both turbos i had to go more of in the middle of what they both were. Cams need to also be less agressive. Also setting up a vw style smog bypass program :rofl:

Located wheels, just waiting on them.

Car is having/finally getting washed on the inside. The prevuous owner left the windows down in a dusty place......you wont believe where dirt gets so easily.

The stereo....well wont be the stock on as much as i wanted, BUT...ill be making a fake front out of the system 10 unit. The stereo will be a unit of my own ive been building with internet link to my house for all my movies/music. Also have a one off navigation. The speakers i chose were ment for the celica is the way they're designed.

As soon as interior is done to where i can have my garage back ill be starting on the engine.

In case anyone was curious.

I bought this car earlier this year around March.
Currently installed FMIC, Synapse BOV, CRW Billet CT20b upgraded turbo
Also just put on 17x9 +35 Enkei RPF1 with 235/45/17 Tires. I need to address the clearance issue with the wheel hitting the front Coilovers with a small spacer.
Also the car could probably be lowered but I'll have to roll the rear fenders as well.

The clutch pedal went out the other day so I'll have to see if its the slave or master.

Previously I was the owner of many 2nd gen MR2 Turbos so I'm very familiar with the 3sgte.
