They've updated the draining system the last couple of years, so places that used to flood hasn't flooded recently. It's gotten better, but some places still do flood.

We've had great boost weather the last couple of days, but sadly, I was working. :\

The goal for the car is to eventually to make it to MSR and COTA for some laps.

hopefully. At least a first crank or something by spring just to know that it's not all jacked up.

I'm probably gonna take the 28th off from work to dedicate a whole day to it.


Completely off topic, But I would love to see this car in action once its running. You gonna do some TX2K/1320 style stuff?


Like drag racing/highway pulls? I don't really care too much for it. I'd like to build the Celica more for street class road racing/time attack. Same with my Supra. Living at TX2K home base, there's a ****load of cars out there making way more power than I care to dump money into to chase.

you're welcome. I've ordered from them before and it took about 2 weeks for the part to come in.

Not much has happened since the last update.

Standalone came in...





and then went straight back out for some additions.



Realized that I didn't have any additional inputs to run on the factory harness to add a fuel pressure, oil pressure, and a flex fuel sensor, so I sent the ECU back along with the auxiliary harness that I bought back to ATS Racing so Scott can work is magic and make me a harness that'll include all of those along with the AEM Wideband since I won't be using the factory narrowband on this car. Wiring loom looks gorgeous and I can't wait to get it into the car.

Did a few other things while the ECU was being worked on:




Swapped out and shortened the connector for the IAT that has replaced the cold start injector. Hope I didn't **** it up and wired the IAT to the wrong pins. lol

I didn't take a picture of it, but I did swap out the map sensor connector for the Delphi ones so I can use my AEM 5 bar sensor. If anyone needs an OEM 3SGTE map sensor, let me know. I think I have a spare one.

Also swapped out and shorted the alternator plug from the old circle connector to the oval one.



I crudely wrapped the downpipe in some DEI titanium wrap. Hopefully it does the job and doesn't burn the AC rubber line it's leaning up against. lol



I bought a carbon fiber intake tube from MR2Heaven hoping that it'll work, but no dice, so I sent it back and will need to fabricate my own.




BTI CAN gauge also came in and I got that mounted into the DCW triple gauge pod. Will get pics of that later.

I think that about sums it up so far. I just need to get water and power steering rubber lines now, figure out what I'm going to do about the AC fan, and mount my fuel pressure regulator, flex fuel sensor, and boost solenoid, but other than that, that should about do it before I clock the turbo compressor housing and start to fab together intercooler piping. I'll probably need to take a day off from work to really focus on that rather than find pockets of time on the weekend to work on the car.

I'm not a huge fan of the boy-racer look of the a-pillar gauge pods, so I ditched the one that came with my car in favor of an older DCW gauge pod that sits on the dash over the AC vents.

I think $219 is fair for the gauge pod assuming it's an OEM pillar cover and then he put in the work to seamlessly add a triple gauge pod to it. Would save me the trouble of doing it myself if I were to go with the pillar pods cuz even with those, I wasn't a fan huge fans of the universal ones that bolt right in the pillar cover. Looked tacky.

you can probably downsize all of those gauges down to 1 (maybe 2) if you use the BTI Gauges CAN gauge depending on if you decide to go standalone or not. I say that even though I'm running 3 gauges on my set-up (Boost, BTI CAN gauge, and AEM wideband). lol

Luke, How do you have your wires ran for the gauges in the gauge pod and what are you using to secure the pod to the dash?

Got some more spare time today after work to do more fuel work on the Celica.





Pulled the factory fuel rail out along with the cold start injector.



The only thing that was a pain in the ass about this was sitting the injector seats into the head, so to make life a hair bit easier, I pulled the harness and the valve cover out of the way.





ATS Racing makes a plate that replaces the cold-start injector in favor of an IAT sensor, so that make life a little convenient.



Also pulled the old harness off to drop in the new harness I got from Doug. You can see how much cleaner it is compared to the old one on the left. There's a couple of things I still need to change on the harness, but it's pretty much ready. I'll need to shorten the length on the MAF plug, extend one of the transmission plugs, re-pin the alternator to the newer oval style, and then there's a plastic cover over part of the harness by the transmission that I'm not sure how it's mounted, so I may just go ahead and pull it off and figure out what I'm going to do with it.



Got most of it buttoned on. I'll have to come back later with some zip ties to clean up the wiring by the injectors and wire in the IAT sensor.



Also decided to pull the eBay oil filter relocation thing out for the time being and just plug the spot with a temp Fram filter to prevent water from going into the motor when it rains.

Still have a lot more crap to do, but finding time during the week is tough. I ordered my standalone the other day and it's currently getting a base map installed. I'm told it'll be shipped out from ATS on Monday once Scott is done setting that up. I ordered my BTI CAN gauge this morning as soon as my paycheck dropped in. lol Should be here in a couple of weeks as he's about a week behind on orders.

For those who don't know what the BTI CAN gauge is, you can find more info HERE.

Would've been nice if he was able to get a 3.5" display for the Link, but I can live with the 52mm gauge.

I think that about sums it up for the day...

Rotary are actually easier on you because they don't shake side to side. The DA gets tiring on larger projects pretty quickly...but I also have a low end DA with a low end backing plate because I STILL cannot find the good backing plate I bought for it and that's really pissing me off still.


Hmm, that makes sense. Maybe they make dinky hand rotaries too. laugh.gif



They actually do. Typically on air and they're small enough for 1 to 3" pads.

Rotaries make quick work of hard clear coats (or rough wetsanding) that DAs can't touch, so it's nice to have one in your arsenal if you do a lot of detailing work.

So not a whole lot has happened since the last update. I've been ordering a bunch of small fittings here and there to finalize my fuel plumbing route. I also ordered an AEM X-line wideband per my tuner's recommendation along with my FID1000cc injectors only to realize that I was sent 11MM injectors instead of 14MM, so I'm waiting on the 14MM top hats to arrive.

Still need to order my standalone and my CAN gauge, but I'm getting there slowly, but surely. Hopefully next week I can place an order for those.

My fuel pump arrived yesterday, so today, I managed to sneak in some time to at least swap out the pump.






It was kind of a hassle due to that plastic bucket thing that surrounds the pump since the Walbro pump is bigger than the OEM pump. At least that's sorted and out of the way.

I also found out that the oil return line that I made was a wee bit too long, so I'll need to find some time this weekend to shorten it down a bit.

Hopefully next week I can have the old harness pulled off so I can run the new one.

are the injectors that you received 11mm or 14mm? RacerX is telling me their rail is for 14mm injectors, but my FIDs aren't fitting the rails.

might as well take this time to swap out every and all rubber hoses while you're at. Will save you the hassle later on down the road.

oh nice! Went similar with FID1000s. Walbro 450 with -6AN lines up to the rail using an in-line Radium Engineering filter.

Doesn't hurt to see what you'll make on corn juice. I'm hoping to hit a solid 350hp or at least to see whatever the limit is on the S54 transmission as far as torque is concerned. lol

What are you planning to tune with? I'm hoping to pick up a Link G4 PnP ECU this weekend.

I did that exact same valve train set-up in mine except I added shimless buckets with'em. I can't wait to hear how it sounds! I'm jealous of those carbon intercooler pipes though. I'm thinking about doing a titanium piece for mine later on down the road. I dunno what you're running for fuel, but I'll have my MK4 550cc injectors up for grabs soon if you're interested. They were cleaned and flow tested before I put them in, but decided to go bigger with 1000cc injectors and E85.

Are there any aftermarket high-compression 3SGE pistons that people have sitting around? Maybe use a 5SFE block and run with more displacement? Spit-balling ideas

Fuel rail came in today AND they included some Big League gum with it. I haven't had this gum since I was a kid. Harness also came in right after the rail got dropped off. Pay day is Friday, so I should be ordering my injectors and pump. Decided to go for FID (Fuel Injector Development) 1000cc since they're a bit cheaper compared to the Injector Dynamic counterpart by about $175, so that difference will go towards the cost of the fuel pump.

My work schedule has been pretty "nice" lately, so it should allow me some time to work on my car when I'm done with my shift. We're getting cloooossseeeee...

Got the oil feed and return lines made. I kinda ****ed up the finish on the fittings when I made them, but eh. They'll hardly be visible once installed, so won't bother me. I'll eventually need to make lines for my catch can as well.

Hopefully on Friday, I'll be able to get around to putting these on the car and getting the downpipe and one of the AC lines wrapped along with pulling my old harness off. Work schedule has been kind of unpredictable so far with when my shift ends, so we'll see how things go.

Small progress is some progress.

Aside from the clutch chatter I get, I really like the Fidanza flywheel that I have in the Supra.
