This build is so awesome man, that old pic from Toyota Fest was my facebook banner for about a year. Most, if not all of what you did to the motor was so confusing to me, I have basic aerospace and auto engine skills and it blew my mind apart. Thanks for the awesome read!

Haven't done much to the car lately other than enjoy it every now and then. Been working the new house a lot and finally finished up the garage. Here's a before and after.

Been a little busy on the car lately. I'm on the road to becoming a driver instructor for a group here in Austin that hosts track days at the F1 circuit. Finally have the opportunity to put the Celica on track since I was offered a couple track days for volunteering. As much as I wanted to just jump right on track I knew it was a bad idea. So I've been track prepping by doing a Moroso pan, capping the throttle body coolant, and doing an external oil cooler. Got her all wrapped up last night. Just waiting on a pan sensor block off then it's time to add fluid. This setup has doubled my oil capacity. On track vids coming soon.

I could eat off your car man. You should have a ball on the track. Have you upgraded your brakes? I was getting a little fade after 3 very hot laps of my local Bushy Park Circuit with DOT 4 and Porterfield R4S.

I have upgraded the rotors and pads. Pads are EBC Yellows and Castrol Race fluid. I know that I will get fade since the stock brakes suck ass. The circuit is also known to kill brakes. Its on the list but I just bought a new Tacoma so its a long ways off. Im hoping all else goes well.

Good stuff man. You should be okay with a cool down lap in between. Take some pictures and video footage if you can!

Wow, your car looks really really good man. Kudos to you on all the hard work you've put it. Now I want to go blow the dust off my car and do something to it. :P
I like the black underside of the hood. If I can ever get my car painted I might do that.

Well guys, round 3 is coming. I did make it out to the F1 Circuit and got to take part in three sessions on slicks. The car was amazing, I had way to much fun beating up on GT3s, in the corners at least. A Celica on slicks is a serious weapon. Mid way through my third session the car started smoking and I could smell burnt oil. I brought it in since getting the F1 circuit dirty costs big. The engine developed excessive crankcase pressure and had pushed out oil everywhere as well as filled the catch can. Rings are toast, she still got herself home but I was throwing a smoke screen like Batman. There is some good news, first is that I got to abuse her on a F1 Circuit, second is that the newly installed oil cooler kept thing very cool. My water temps never hit 200 even at the end of the sessions.
So now my plan of attack is to build a bottom end. Hot tank the block, refinish it black, new raw freeze plugs. JE pistons with stock bore and 8.5 comp. ratio. Brian Crower Rods, all new bearings, high volume oil pump from ATS, and a new water pump. My head is fairly fresh since I just went through this less than three years ago but I will still get it checked and cleaned. Finally Im going to do a KO Racing kit with a Garrett 3071 with screamer pipe. Im keeping my new goals very modest with reliability in mind. Shooting for 280-300 HP max with a similar TQ number. She will be down for awhile but I will be back on the circuit soon. Photos of my latest progress, Ill update when I have one worth giving, planning on having the motor dropped this weekend. This will be my first time dropping it without a lift so wish me luck.

Uh oh!! Glad you had fun. I recall you trying to avoid getting into rebuilds. Bug biting again? Lol. Great turbo selection btw. They'll push more than what you want, and have minimal lag. Drove in a Saab 9-3 Viggen with a GT3071R months ago..spooled quick, wheel spin all day (once the car hooked, it was all fun). Traction is not an issue for us though. Wouldn't you be interested in going the CT20 route if you wish to stay at that hp level?
