It's been done before but usually in conjunction with other things likes cams or boost in order to see any significant gains from it. Just grinding out the plenum won't give you much of anything. but if you're just killing time and wanna put in the effort then go for it.

this build has some pics if you wanna see how they did it.

Noting really to update.... Got the car back on the ground. I need an alignment and potentially some crush tubes, but it drives great.

I forgot how much I enjoyed driving it.

The End.

Time to update and break the forums.


haha, nope not willing to break the forum so no updates. Took it out a few times to "run out the old gas" hehehe.... it's fun revving it up with no exhaust down these country roads. biggrin.gif but I also don't want to do too much and end up with a failing master cylinder too so it'll sit for the most part.

but the real reason is that most of my time has been spent on yard work. I've been mowing the lawn constantly it seems, and then solving some issues around the house. Digging a drain pipe for part of my driveway as it floods during heavy rains. Also battling invasive sumac. Those sonsabiches spread faster than a prostitute's legs. Bout to set fire to half my yard just to keep them under control. Trying poison first and if that don't kill them I'll just have to dig up my whole yard. ugh...

Guys, Iím REALLY starting to dislike owning old cars.


What'd you do this time?
It might be something to do with the owner rather than the cars..... laugh.gif

Well at least we know he's alive.


Jake and Sam were visiting them but for all we know, Brigette killed him and called them out to buy parts off the BEAMS so that may not even be him responding.

Every time someone with a Toyota says their new clutch/flywheel isn't working right I always ask them about how it was cut/was there a step, and almost every time that's the problem or they killed the clutch because of failing master/slave.

I hope you get it sorted out and all together for the next meet, that'll be a lot of fun!


Quarantine is almost over so my free time is going to be cut short again. It was close. I almost had it all squared out before the end of it. lol but I will have to take it apart some time and get it sorted and finish the exhaust as well.

Here's the PSA thread I made years ago explaining what happens if your flywheel has the wrong step height

http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=93023


Machining specs matter ppl. These are carefully engineered mechanical systems and everything has to be spaced appropriately to work


Yeah, I was searching online and just found it the other day when the forum came back up. Definitely good info and I would've never thought about it if you hadn't said anything.

Enough to enjoy taking it out on the country roads here a few times. The old gas in it is almost out so I can't wait to put proper gas into it and see if that will help it run even better.

CHEEE STOP FIXING YOUR CELICA IT'S BREAKING THE INTERNET!

Srsly, seems like every time you post an update the site goes down lol. Good to see you making progress though!


um................ I have.... an....... update??..... but I'm not sure if I should post it because it might actually break the whole interwebz but I mean.... the BEANS is down on the ground and I ran through all the gears down the road and back....... *closes eyes and flinches as I press the post button*

That's fantastic news, I bet you're thrilled. Hows it feel?


First drive felt amazing! It's definitely ALOT more power than the 7A auto and it screams to redline since there's no exhaust. Definitely feels faster than Daniel's although his 1) never ran quite right and 2) I drove it in Colorado so the altitude difference probably lost a good 10-15hp. Way faster than Mike's Yellowtop for sure. lol The LSD trans is nice too. Can definitely feel the road more. TRD shifter makes it fun to shift as well so overall it's more acceptable as a sports car now.

but that being said, it doesn't go without issues. I'm also concerned as when I first got it off the ground, I couldn't go into gear at all with the engine running but was able to with it off. Talking with Daniel and Luke, we think it's because the flywheel wasn't machined to the correct step height. I ended up bleeding the clutch and adjusting the clutch pedal and was able to get it to disengage the clutch but the clutch pedal adjustment is almost maxed out. So while it is drivable, per Luke and his experience, the flywheel will have to come out again and get corrected or I will end up eating through master cylinders.

oh and power steering leaks like a b*tch so I gotta get a new high pressure hose to the replace the new hose I put in since that hose is leaking.

Polishing up her dark silver Escape with some of the new Turtle Wax line then gonna top it with the matching spray ceramic sealer stuff. It's looking nice so far, not using the recommended pad for the polishing but it's doing well anyway. Currently taking a short break from the roof.

On a little different tangent seems like Erin has the 'rona. Shortness of breathe, aches, weakness, fatigue, chills, cold hands and feet, and feeling very cold all the time. No fever. She's been exposed to co-workers who are sick and clinically diagnosed so she was able to go get tested. Test came back negative but doctor says she thinks that based on symptoms she's gotten a false negative test result. She's calling Monday to follow up about a chest X-Ray and make a follow up appointment. She's lost most of her sense of taste and smell sometime during the last couple days but smell might be coming back already. Meanwhile I'm pretty much fine, little tickle in my throat from time to time and maybe a little fatigue but I haven't been sleeping great the past week she's been sick.



oh no! that not good news... Hope she can recover and gets better soon.

oh snap! my post did get posted after all. lol. I literally posted that AS the forum crashed.

yeah, I only make progress when the forum crashes it seems.... I would gladly accept the ban if it means the forum stays up. lol

Bitter, I've also been seeing ITB BEANS for some reason and it's peaking my interest but I don't think I can handle any more down time without a celica. Since selling Freelica, I do not have a drivable 6th gen anymore so I gotta get back on the road for a bit before I think about any other mods.



also, as of two days ago, the interior is put back together, just had to splice in the passenger seat wire because it was brittle and broken when I took out the seat. Bled the brakes and taped up some exposed wires in the engine bay. Installed some chrome door handles and clear lenses on my door cards. Only things left to do is get a decent drill to drill the mount holes on the passenger side, (yes I haven't done that this entire time because of all the issues i ran into), tighten the power steering because it's keeps leaking, burp the coolant, get a new ventilation hose for the intake, and fab an exhaust and we'll be good to go! oh and also fix that broken bolt on the AC line that I snapped but.......... we'll figure that one out later....

Seems like whenever the forum goes down, I make a tremendous amount of progress so it only makes sense that yesterday and the day before the forum went down. But now it seems like it's up?? Jordan, Devin you two were right. Thanks for the tip. That definitely solved the issue. It was a noob mistake on my part. The harness I got from Daniel was cut short and set up for battery relocation. During the BEAMS party, we swapped harnesses and saw that so Luke and I cut the positive terminal off the old harness off and kinda held it together by hand and electrical tape to get it started that one time. LOL. After the BEAMS party I let it sit for a while before getting back into it, retraced my steps and redid/added some grounds and retightened everything. I also attempted to splice the battery wire together but that was where my noob mistake came in. The splice I made didn't have a secure tight connection and kept losing power therefore causing all the weird funky issues. Low and behold, I undid my connection and made a better tighter connection and BAM! I got BEANS!

For all five of you guys viewing at home, I give you "the start up video"


BIG HUGEEEEEEE HUGEEEE shoutout and thank you to everyone that has helped me along the way so far. Definitely couldn't have done it without the midwest crew, you all know you are. Big Thanks to the BEAMS party crew for driving from all over to help me out that day. Jordan, Devin, Luke for giving me advice and tips on how not to mess it up. Chris for supplying your parts car for me to raid. Annette, Ted, Norberto, Manny and whoever else nagged me the entire way and gave me motivation to not give up, I was close a couple times. Lastly, Thanks to the guy who convinced me to do something so stupid and something I will never financially recover from. You provided me with a broken BEAMS, an LSD trans, a weird acting harness, and lots of late night chats about how I shouldn't suck at something like this. Daniel, thank you for everything and I hope you happy you can have another person that shares in your struggle with the BEAMS now. laugh.gif

We're not quite done yet though, just almost to the finish line. Gotta finish up and tidy up a couple more things before it can roll outta the garage finally! stay tuned everyone!

Well that's somewhat of a good sign! If you have a multi-meter maybe check for continuity from starter to where ever at the fuse box. Or tear open the loom & see if there is bad wires for the starter circuit.


yeah might have to end up doing that.

dead battery?


nein. battery was on a tender all winter. I even threw in the battery from my Matrix to guarantee a fresh working battery and still nothing.


Gonna get another starter to pop in there and ensure it's not the problem and then thoroughly check the wiring from the starter back.
It's so close....
