Wow, really cannot believe I haven't posted in two years. I used to be on this site daily when I had my first car..

Some updates:
Projectors have been installed.
Poly bushings have been removed from the rear.
FINALLY swapped in the gen2 3sgte I posted about somewhere in my first "build" thread.
Currently in progress with finishing up the swap as the headgasket decided to leak oil out of the high pressure gallery area of the block. Kind of weird spot for an HG failure and oil leak...

You can see my progress on Instagram with this swap, the work I'm doing on my Rav4, and the still not driveable ST165. My username is Celica_ST165

I'll get some photos up tomorrow of all the progress!

Maybe at least there is someone smile.gif who knows where to search for the steering rack?


I'll have one for you in June, but as for now, it needs to stay in my car...

Does the clutch disk from a S54 transmission work in a S51 or S53? I might as well put a new clutch on the car since I am dropping the tranny.


It should work just fine

Why wouldn't you mount all of that into the spare tire well and put a flameproof top on it? I definitely wouldn't want that sitting behind me and honestly, that probably won't be legal to race with.


Side note: best way of getting that fuel hose fitting loose? Need to get my pump out of there.

Like I said, no one is really on the forums anymore. You'll probably have a better chance on eBay or the 6gc Facebook group.

Finally some progress on this thing! This will be the year I get her back up and running, and she's 30 years old...
Have a lot to do though..

Cleaning up the engine harness. Pulled wires from a spare one to replace sections in the engine bay. Lots of cracked wires, broken terminals, and broken connectors... Also deleted a few systems that are not needed anymore.


Engine pulled and purchased an ST185 Whiteline strut bar. Also bought a rear whiteline for the ST165 smile.gif

As for the folding mirrors, they are almost plug 'n play. You need to run two wires to the passenger side door.

Well it's been a while again, quick update.

Will be getting to removing the poly bushings in the spring once I get new summer tires for the car, would only make sense to get an alignment after doing everything.

Ceramic coated the exhaust that went on, but it all started flaking off rolleyes.gif I don't know what happened. I sanded, primed, base, and clear on it, yes all of which were for ceramic coating. The exhaust is a few inches short so it's all super tight right now, need to make and add a spacer in there on the flex to mid pipes.

Rot in the rockers is starting to get a little bad, and one spot on the floor pan by the front PS subframe mount, cutting and welding in new pieces of metal in the spring.
Filled it all with black RTV sealant for now laugh.gif

And I guess one cool thing in the works that should on the car in a week or so cwm13.gif

Are the skirts OEM or replica? It looks like the front and rear lips are reps made from fiberglass

Also wish this was up earlier in the month, just bought a projector headlight set from Cali... definitely would have picked them up from you instead..

You need some speaker grills? Cause I have a few sets of speaker grills laying around. At least I think I still have them...

so, I got the key today. thought i'd entertain myself and try starting it to see whats wrong. used a jumpstarter. connected to the battery, turn the key...... VROOM....???? what? I thought they said the engine gave out? a puff of smoke under the car and I can tell the flex pipe is busted so I try to put it in gear to move the car. 1st gear nothing, 2nd gear, nothing, 3rd, 4th, 5th, reverse... nothing... so i guess it wasn't spun bearings. looks like somebody toasted the clutch.

so it looks like i'll be do a clutch job instead or engine swap. I know most of you are booing me right now because you wanted an engine swap. but if this works out, I can have this black one as a daily driver and then focus on swapping my green one. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif


I would check the axles first. Just to rule them out. You just never know.

ooooh, noobs, where can i find one?

I'm right here!lol I am new to toyota. I did an awd conversion to a 1994 nissan sentra like ten years back and it was a lot of work. I'm not going through that again on something I am unfamiliar with. I've been a bmw technician for a while now and this is like learning a new language.


The AWD GT4 swap isn't too bad in these and it's very straight forward because they came AWD overseas. Just some minor fab work and it's all in there.

If I wasn't on the other side of the country, I'd probably take everything as a spare parts for my ST165

The idea is that they will still have the potential to generate ad revenue off of your photos. Delete your account and take that away from them.


I understand that, but if things revert (which photobucket most likely will after all the backlash) and the photos do come back online for 3rd party hosting, you guys are just ruining this site more by deleting your photos and breaking more links. I know the forum is slowly dying out, but this just might kill it altogether.. frown.gif

It sucks that no one was able to backup the site before this all happened to save what we could and possibly have it in PDF form or something. Still a lot of info in text, but pictures help a lot.

I have the left and right headlight mount if you need them still? Spray painted black (and flaking, but will easily come off with a graffiti dissolver.
