inching closer to a plan.

Road Map

Going to keep the power upgrade simple rather than over-complicating it.

1: Fuel surge tank - ~$500
2: EMS - its looking like its going to be LINK ~$1600
3: Turbo or SC cooled by a W2A - OE compression ratio - meth injection or maybe a flex fuel (havent really looked deep into
flex fuel yet) ~$4000
4: Pretty Custom exhaust manifold ~$2000
5: Camshaft and head mods on the spare head I have sitting ~$2000
6: Decimate all ~$Priceless

7: Suspension Upgrade (Tein? Penske?) ~$4000 +/- Sponsorship
8: Aero ~$3000
9: Half Cage ~$3000

TOTAL - PRICELESS

sponsorship $ and discounts help a bit but yeah...lottery would turn this from a 4 year project to this year lol

A new car. Yeah. In a perfect world I would. I drove my buddies 350Z this past weekend and now I want a RWD car...but I dont feel like learning a new car lol so I might as well make the Celica a poster child for waste for $ on a useless platform lol

...which is why you buy a Miata, dump a lot less $$ into that, and still have the Celica.

Limitations shmimitations

Id end up redoing what I have already done to the celica...to the next car I get. The only two things I battle with are the FWD and the Motor. One of which can be remedied with a quick switch of mindset and a K20swap lol. Drivetrain...Id sooner get a LHD ST205 than getting another car. Most of what I have could be transferred over lol

Oh man. Basically make an ST205 look like my car...so you wouldnt even know its and ST205. Thats what I want.


Miatas are the WORST. I get bang for buck...but not what Im going for. My buddy just sold his for a 350Z lol

Id do a billet block. Id do it.

I mean, I much enjoyed and miss the FWD characteristics, especially endless wheel spin in slippery conditions. The lightness of the rear swinging around under trail braking. I just think if you want real racecar, FR is the answer, and a FWD DD is a real fun distraction.

The worst. lol
