Picked up an OE CS/RC hood and bumper.

Car will be getting a ST246 swap with FMIC. Hood should help the cooling situation.

The CS/RC hood is designed to remove heat from the engine compartment. Did you change the intercooler from air:air to water:air? If not, how are you cooling your turbocharged air charge to the throttle body?

That makes sense.

You are really modding your find there, Hoys.

Finally found a car that I want to keep, so I'm putting money into it :)

Good barn find.
The clunking in the rear is probably the rear diff mount. Toyota wants lots of money for it but you can
get poly or OEM style diff mount from ebay and I have good luck with those.

Also, a note on timing belt for the Celica. removing the engine mount help tremendously and the website twosrus.com have studs you can buy for the tensioner and you can cut 2.5 hrs for timing belt change to maybe 1 hour.

when It comes to shocks, I lucked out with a full set of Koni yellow and HR springs at the local autowrecker 3 days after I found my Celica but alternative to that, I would say coilovers as shocks for the alltrac is non-existant anywhere as most shocks are for the FWD model.

cheers.

I've said it in other threads, but if you opt for BC coilover, get the swift spring upgrade. Its a night and day difference to the stock coil over springs.

And yes, the rear struts are almost non existent. I do remember a thread where somewhere in Europe they sell kyb? Rear struts for our cars. I dont remember exact details though.

I had the Excel-G for the front and the car was very bouncy. probably it was made for GTS where
it is not as heavy as the all trac?

I bought the KYB Excel-G before I got a hold of the Koni. so decided to try the KYB first.

RC crash bar came in today. Good quality. Time to get the body parts painted now.

Test fitting RC/CS components. Going off to paint in a week or so. Will fix the roof clearcoat damage at the same time.

Also bought some cheap Avid 1 wheels for maximum scene points TM.

I think next on the list will be installing the RC intercooler and buying some coil overs as the suspension isn't getting any better.

Car is back from paint:

I've got a few more bits to fit onto the car and it should be ready to rock. Very happy with the result. No more clear coat fade on the roof!

On to fitting the air to water intercooler and new struts and springs all around.

I think after that I won't do much to the car for awhile. Probably start a long running engine build.

Drove a few hundred miles for a small car show. Car had no issues whatsoever. I'm starting to hear a noise that sounds like the turbo going bad and the clutch take up point is getting pretty high. So I guess it's time to swap :)
