Sorry to see you sell her but hopefully we can keep it in the family, in mass even. I think we have some friends who are very interested. When they get back from Florida we'll come see you... And bring the RI beams, maybe get that picture we missed at csp 😁

Actually the 7th gen with the 6spd tranny is a little higher rpm than the beams is now.

So I drove the beams for the first time since the new fifth gear yesterday. Went to New Jersey and back on one tank of gas. I did not try to save gas, I drove normally, about 80mph most of the time, some minor traffic, downshifted to fourth and played around a few times. Filled it up this morning and it was 34.1mpg. We have gotten that before while driving out to the Midwest meet last year but we were trying pretty hard to do that. Next time maybe I'll try for best mpg but that's hard to do with the beams, it just wants to play.

On a side note, I was actually a little against this mod cause I really don't drive on the highway at all and I was apprehensive about opening the tranny for something I didn't see a need for. But Dustin does a lot of highway driving and he wanted to so I went along with it. That being said, after driving the car, it's pretty f-ing awesome! It's like a totally different car, so calm for cruising but all the fun still available to you. I really could not think of a downside yesterday.

So far this whole page is of different people "misinterpreting" your "exact words", myself included because I am one of the people who you say 'knows where you live' and within the same sentence 'this was not a random act'. Just so you know I have no need for your garbage and don't see any reason to waste my gas or my life AGAIN for no reason that would benefit me. I guarantee Manny and Dustin feel the same. That rules out 3 of the 2-4 people on your suspect list. Good luck with the investigation.

What are the future plans?

Refirb the 14" wheels a little and put snows on them, get all season tires for Cameron's old 15" alloys that are on it now. That's it.

Just a reminder cause I'm not sure who, if anyone, is staying at me and Dustin's house but anyone who doesn't fit at Manny and Jenn's is welcome to stay at ours. We have two spare rooms, one with a full bed and one with a futon, a futon downstairs in Dustin's office, and two couches available... And plenty of parking lol

So its been done for a while but I haven't taken the time to post about it

so continuing from the last picture that was posted,







Was in and started on July29th



Then test drive the next day after a few little finishing touches. Went down the street to put gas in it, Dustin got in the drivers seat to take it around the block when this happened...


Took it apart and found that when I put the cam caps back on I put on a little too much FIPG and it go into the oil journals for the intake cam causing it to lock up







Got another cam, new seal, checked the exhaust cam which was ok, new seal there too, new timing belt, and all has been well since then.

Once thing I can't figure out is the bov makes this weird squealing noise while it is closing, I tightened the boost source on the bov and its a little bit better but not much.

Sat night it came out.

Anyone want anything off the 7A turbo setup let me know.

M/T ECU is sold.

AEM F/IC is out and in the box ready to go

Would like to see the turbo, manifold, downpipe, and Tial 38mm MV-S external wastegate all go together since it was all sort of custom made to fit each other.

Anyone who wants the WebCams reground camshafts will get all the shims and buckets out of the motor too, should make it a bit easier to install.

The Innovate LC-1 Wideband is for sale. If anyone wants it I will include the clock I modified to fit the digital readout.

I'm personally never getting that style disk ever again. My first clutch was like that and all the springs were just about coming out and some actually did. That wasn't after on 1,500 miles too. You guys should remember bahaha laugh.gif

yeah, your ebay disc
a lot of people are saying good things about clutch masters, we'll see I guess
would have loved to get an Exedy but they don't even make anything for the S54 so they can't make a hybrid for me

I've heard the stock hood clears it, may have to do something about cooling though. Will run without modifications at first to see how it does. The car looks the way I want it to right now, if I can keep it that way I will, if not I'll explore my options.

why did you remove the abs?

expensive to replace the sensors that always break off in the hubs, removed it on Dustin's blue Celica and it didn't come with my Green one, we don't need it.

Followed your turbo build closely, looking forward to this! What was the specs on the cams? If the price is right i might take them off your hands for an na 7a build.

There is a picture of the spec sheet in my turbo project thread somewhere. I have the paperwork for them too so when the for sale actually goes up I'll post a picture of the cams and specs. On most of my stuff I'll entertain any reasonable offer just to move some of it.

Great stuff thumbsup.gif Will you miss the 7A-FTE?

I've had my time with the 7A, its taught me way more than I ever though it would, and for that I'll never regret having done it.

Right now I think I'll miss some aspects of it, like the instantaneous torque, but I'm sure once the 3S is in I won't miss anything having to do with a 7AFE wink.gif

So some people may already know that I've had 7A turbo in my car and running for almost 4 years now. We did have our ups and downs in the beginning but the JDM Guy team and I figured out how to make it run great. Obviously I realize my little motor won't last forever, so when Dustin decided he wanted to get rid of his car we decided to part it and give his 3rd gen 3SGTE a new home while still keeping it in the family.


Some people also know about the 98 Rav4 we have that we put a Redtop Beams motor in. I'll be using the LSD S54 that came with that motor.

I just did some cleaning and painting on the 3S, changed the timing belt, water pump, all the oil seals, valve cover gaskets, drive belts, etc.










Right now I'm just waiting on a clutch. I ordered a Clutch Masters stage 2 hybrid clutch kit.

There are a few things from my turbo setup that will be staying but naturally there will be a lot of things for sale.
The WebCams custom reground cams with all the shims, 7A turbo manifold with the Tial 38mm MV-S external wastegate, Garrett T3 2052 turbo with the custom made flange and downpipe, RC Engineering 370cc fuel injectors, also have a set of Toyota 3SGE 372cc lime green injectors, we'll have a spare Devil's Own water injection kit, an unopened JoeP manual boost controller, Walbro 255lph fuel pump with foam insulator to make it quieter, my PWR water to air intercooler with the inline filler neck/cap. I will put up a formal for sale with pictures once everything is out but I just want to get the word out on some of the things that will be up for grabs pretty soon.

Selling my car is not an option. This decision was him wanting to get rid of his car, parting or selling as a whole are the choices he has come up with. Yes, parting it would be to my benefit and that's the only reason he is considering that route. I have not and would not pressure him into selling his car to benefit me because I would not be happy if he did that to me and my car. He has been thinking about this for a while, the first time he brought it up to me my response was that I wanted him to think about it for a long time, I wanted him to drive his car more and think about it more, I wanted him to be absolutely sure this is what he wanted and he will not regret it.
