New Member from the Caribbean trying to build a 10s alltrac

Postby OnKonshus » Tue Sep 06, 2022 1:51 pm

Hey Guys, I'm from St. George's, Grenada, in the Caribbean, and I bought a 1990 Celica AllTrac in November 2021, and I swapped the engine for a (Gen 4) 3SGTE with CP pistons, Manley rods, Cometic MLS headgasket, ARP head studs, ARP main bolts, Gates timing belt, Stock ECU, Stock turbo, Stock fuel system (hoping to upgrade all the stock parts soon). I'm hoping to setup the car as a street car that can run low 11s - high 10s, and I would appreciate all advise in terms of parts necessary to get to my goal.

At that point I’m thinking that’s more a race car that can be streeted than a street car. :D

Interested to see how this goes, but I have to step aside and let the max power folks hold forth as I’m on the other side of the equation looking at a little more power and lighter weight. From the advice I have read though you went about it the right way: Guts first then turbo.

One thing you haven’t listed is a clutch upgrade to reliably get all that power into play. Did you do that when you swapped the Gen4 in? If not you missed an opportunity while the motor was out.

Well I've seen Alltrac doing low 11s and still being street driven so I'm hoping to go alittle faster without losing too much "streetabilty".
Yeah, Sorry I forgot to mention that I'm running a Stage 3 ACT Clutch on a Stage 2 SPEC pressure plate, lightweight flywheel and ARP studs.

Well you’ve built quite the machine then! Tip of the hat.
