The E154f is a pretty stout transmission and should be able to handle 500awhp fairly safely (especially if it's more for highway pulls than dragstrip launches with radials banging gears). Few high hp guys over on alltrac.net use it upwards of 6 and 700awhp. It's the center diff and more often axles that tends to fail on high hp applications though. Overall, no need to be too worried about catastrophic trans failure right off the bat.

The rear diff can take a beating as long as it's in decent shape beforehand and you use quality fluid, as I expect you would. thumbsup.gif

Awesome! That is good to know!

Well I came across a set of my dream wheels for sale.. Couldn't help myself but to scoop them up. I can hardly retain my excitement lol. I can't wait for them to arrive, Truly I had no idea they made them in 5x100. Should look nice on the Celica! You all will have to wait to see finished pictures:)

It's has been a while. I suppose I will do a small update:

Front seats:


Rear seats:


New lug nuts:


New wheels:











Finally got a nice undamaged front Eurou Lip! Just waiting on paint!


Also got myself a PC680 battery, love these little guys, Ran one in my Evo and all my DSM's light and small!


I will be making a carbon fiber tray and stay to mount the battery in the trunk. Also got a externally kill switch, personally I hate these things, but if you are going to move the battery you need one. Luckily I think that it looks clean where I installed it. (Ignore the missing Toyota emblem, took it off for paint correction)


I bought a 12gal fuel cell also, This I will be mounting in the trunk, I will be cutting out most of the trunk floor and make a tubular support for the fuel cell. Then the area surrounding the cell will all be carbon fiber as apposed to sheet metal, should help shed some weight. This will all be in preparation for awd that will be coming next winter. Hopefully i will be tackling the mounting and plumbing of the cell this coming weekend.


(Sadly they sent me the wrong one.. This one has no sending unit, I should have my replacement by Wednesday)

Lastly I installed my 7th gen short throw shifter, it was great and all but I hate how short the actual shifter itself was. Personally I like tall shifters. So I decided to try something a bit different. I went with a K Tuned unit that extends the shifter, and also relocates it 1" in any direction. Oh my how much I love this setup is unreal. It is simply amazing, moving the shifter closer to the rear of the car is great as well seeing I am tall and typically have the seat all the way back to be in a comfortable driving position. It is also aesthetically pleasing. I will be excited to bring this set up over to the 3sgte/ awd swap.

Wow, that's quite an update! The fuel cell is an interesting touch. Why is an external battery killswitch necessary when relocating the battery? I've honestly never dealt with them, and it seems like that would make it easy for random people to come up to your car and mess with it. But I'm also guessing you don't leave your car out in the open for people to do that! biggrin.gif

And when you did the S2000 antenna mod, did you do the chop and glue method, or did you go all out and use a 7th gen antenna base (as in this process)?

The cell is only necessary because the location of the factory gas tank will be in the way of the drive shaft when going to AWD. The disconnect, it is ruled to be necessary for Ferrin group, and MSU racing auto X, along with any NHRA track in order to pass tech. If the battery is not in the factory location it is needed to have a visible external battery kill switch. Seeing I plan to mount the battery in the rear passenger side of the trunk I figured I would get the switch out of the way now haha. As for the S2000 antenna, it installed with the cut/ glue method.


Just ordered up all my gauges for the car. I plan to make a custom center consul that houses the gauges where the Hvac vents are located. I am really leaning to a Race pack for the gauge cluster itself, but we shall see. I got all Innovate gauges. In my opinion they make the best product on the market, and hands down the fastest responding Wide band available to date. So I figured all matching would go well.

Boost/ shift light

Oil Psi/ Temp

Wide band AFR


Here is what I have planed for the gauge pod ( Not sure who's car this is, Ignore the poor Photoshop skills)

Things just got serious.

I think for the battery kill switch it's needed under certain forms of sanctioned racing, though on some cars like the Miata the battery is located in the trunk from the factory so who knows maybe they have to add one anyway or not.

This is probably one of my favorite builds on the site right now.

I'm curious what your plans for the car are, aside from 3S/AWD swap? At first it looked like it was just going to be a sick bagged street car. But after seeing the fuel cell and all, it seems your building something for track as well?

Either way, awesome work. These wheels suit the car much better than the previous set up in my opinion.

Thank you, as for the build direction I think it is quickly following the foot steeps of all my other builds. I would like a high hp, light weight street car, that can also pull impressive numbers at the drag strip. I don't want to loose a lot of the practicality of the car, but it is easy for me to get a bit carried away with a project. So I guess only time will till.

Well, as I am sure most of know I put the Celica up for sale. I'm sure this seemed like a very random thing to do, especially seeing how rushed I was to sell the car. It didn't even take a week for the car to sell, and I couldn't be happier with how much. In case you are wonder wtf.. why? I had full intent of completing this build and to have fun with it. The reason being is that my "eleanor" came back up for sale. I tried to buy this car before but it sold a few days before I could make it there. I wasn't letting this happen again. As soon as I saw the car for sale I immediately put a deposit down on it. So here it is my new 1991 Nissan 300zx tt. The car is pretty wild to say the least. The car was completely built by Z1 Motorsports and owned by one of Z1's employees. It's a absolute monster with twin GTX2867's, built block and heads. On 93 it put down a conservative 631/521 to the wheels. I have never bought a modified car before, it's not typically how I do things, but knowing that Z1 is who did every bit of work on this car it doesn't concern me the least. Of course I will be changing some things to make the car my own, but nothing to dramatic. Here's a couple pics.
