This will be quite interesting to see! I've never thought of full EV conversion; but I was totally thinking about some sort of hybrid system. Idea would to have EV converted hub motor's for the rear. Make it both hybrid and "AWD" lol.
Of course you'll have to worry about how the system work together though.

Recently joined a Rally hosted by a local automotive enthusiast podcast (Overcrest Productions). It was amazing! Didn't know the roads we were on existed so close to home in the WI area.
Highly recommend coming next year, as there were some people outside of the states (IL and PA afaik) that joined in as well. Probably 80 cars? Few imports, some non-porsche euros, and the rest were porsche's lol.

I didn't take a photo of my car so I took one from IG.


First day group that I ran with, it was a blast eventually being 3rd and following some old school Porsche through the corners.


Second day group, a stock M3 and 991.2. Unfortunately the second day had higher speed roads so I was last and struggled to keep up with them during acceleration.
The M3 peeled back to MN near the end so I finished at the end point with the 911.2 only. Awesome guy, glad to make a new friend during the rally.


It was unexpected but my co-pilot wanted to shoot some videos so he free-handed recording during the second day.
Got two videos, one with the M3 and 911 going faster than usual and the other w/ just he 911 casually strolling.
Celica, M3, 991.2
Celica, 991.2

NEED MORE POWER!!! At least in those high speed areas to keep up with them other cars that have over 100hp than me.
Nothing else left I think for this year, just waiting for the shop to open up to eventually do my clutch+flywheel+lsd and perhaps some other things.

Looks good for the age! What's the plan for it?

Thanks! Drive it! At some point I'd like to have the seats recovered though. Maybe vinyl wrap it purple. For now the only "mods" I plan on doing is swapping out the headlights for 9011/9012 bulbs and finding a good festoon LED for the courtesy light.


Seats do look pretty worn, do you prefer the tan interior or would you rather have black/gray interior? Maybe even go purple or white if you vinyl wrap the car purple lol

^ 2GR would be the way to go for V6, the 1MZ/3MZ wouldn't be bad either. But it's hard to beat the swap of the 3SGTE with power mods to cover for the AWD.

Finally got my axle stuff resolved for now. Had to get a new passenger inner axle stub. Luckily my buddy had one since he obtained a lsd e153 + axles.
Changed out my transmission oil to Mt-90 and finally found the reason why my whole bottom left side was all greased out.

Turns out there was actually a hole in the transmission case (3mm x 2mm) from the axle backing plate scratching upon it when it first broke.
I didn't even see it cause it was so small; but it starts to leak when you get near full filling the transmission oil.
Hopefully the JB Weld Steel Stick stuff lasts (works for now). Just finally glad to get the car back on the road after a month of constant problems.



The shop that's going to do my lsd install is stacked until winter so unfortunately I'll have to wait until end of year/next year to get it installed.
On the other hand since they're taking out the transmission I decided I mind as well "upgrade" the clutch and flywheel.
Clutch is just a Stage 1, reviews seem to show that the combo is a pretty good one.

Hoping the car can last until after Oct 3-4 for a rally that I joined from a local podcast group I listen to. (link)
Probably see if I can get some photos while cruising and stuff.

Anyone know of someone selling the supercharger kit? LOL

Loctite 272 those bolts my man, should help prevent them from backing out in the future.


Yep, just did that. I'm guessing the previous shop who did my axles didn't do that and it eventually loosened over time.

Which W30?



Also was the doggos birthday today, or what she says is their birthday at least. So we took them on an all afternoon hike and then bought them a pork chop medium rare bone out for a special dinner treat. I tried a couple bites of it, super delicious!


W30


I like the fact that you think we can obtain a nuclear missile. But it's 2020, might be possible.

Minor update: axles problems again! Had a meet a while back and as I was heading home I suddenly heard a huge clunk before my axle sounded like it was binding.
Thought it was the passenger side (cause I had the most issue w/ that side), turned out it was the driver side. Apparently the bolts came loose.


Bought new washer plates, axles, and 75 mm bolts (standard is like 50). Btw, that is a 15 mm axle spacer. Got that replaced and then literally a week later I was driving when my axle would "lock" up and turn right.
Quite scary when you're on the highway and going 75 mph. Turns out my right axle was bad. Ripped hole and missing 1-2 ball bearings. So getting that replaced and probably going to try w/o the spacer on that side.

Finally got the wiring and hardware installed for the DCW pod + gauges.
- LCE testpipe cut down to match 12.5" and bung installed (decent welding by shop, wish it was better). Realized I already had one on the pipe but it was rusted so good thing I made a new one.
- Mishimoto universal sandwich plate. Image looks like it'll leak but I haven't had any issues after running it for a day; but time will tell.
- DCW triple pod. Not sure if it's warped or my dash but it wasn't "perfect" fit, as some parts stick but other locations needed extra layering. But not noticeable from driver/passenger perspective.
- I was originally going to have the wire go through the clock location; but ended up just going on top of the center cover and squeezing it in.
- Ignore the missing buttons, looking for new ones and all most are discontinued so the journey begins to search for new ones. It's going to be a long term search.



Small meet tomorrow, then probably set-up getting my LSD/Axle-work done.
In the meantime wanting to also upgrade my audio w/ a double-din and full speakers/sub upgrade.
Porsche brakes will probably start next year.

Why did she do the wiring?


For an alignment that car seems like a chaotic neutral.


That's what she does Jordan.

I do the mechanical work, and she handles all the electrical.

^ Available the same dates as well. The only changes is if the car is in the shop by then and not out.

Got the glow gauge faces since I liked the daytime look. Not so fond of the nighttime as I originally wanted white lightning; but I wasn't going to pay like $430 for that when these were only $30.
I left the three 194 bulbs in the back white cause I couldn't find a greenish/blue color like the gauges and the RGB led's were too long. Last but not least the needles were painted fluorescent orange ON TOP of the original white paint.





I didn't remove the original; but instead double sided tape the new one's over the old one. Didn't want to glue it nor remove the needles cause it would mess up the e153 calibration so left it.
Also routed it wires by cutting a small hole in the back protector film (open space). Here's how it gauges look close up.




It was so hard to take a daytime photo due to the reflection so I did the best I could at the time. Overall there's a few things I will re-do (bezel paint/filler, new clear plastic, needle repaint) in the future but it's good enough for now.
However my fuel tank light won't go off (after filing) so going to drive the car until empty and try again. Also my airbag light is on for some reason so I need to check out why (it was on/off long before; but now it slightly glows even when the car is off).




Last but not least, QUAIFE BABY. I was lucky to find someone selling a blue gear ring in good condition (at a hefty price) so I went ahead and ordered the LSD. This probably won't go on for a while though as the shop I want to take it to is busy.
It'll be the best time to also cut my passenger spacer down so I can run negative camber (it was binding before), swap to MT-90 transmission fluid, and setup for the 986 caliper work (and maybe the GT4 rear) before getting another alignment.


Other things in the work: getting the 2.5" LCE pipe and going to have it cut down to 12.5" to match the OEM CAT length. Will also have the bung installed there for the AFR plug (yes it's further back but I didn't want to take out the whole custom y-pipe).
Once that gets done then I'll be installing the AFR w/ the Oil Temp + Pressure. Will probably change out the VDO volt gauge to an AEM one to match the rest of the gauges as well (digital + VDO green is off from instrument cluster).

Has there been any date thrown out yet? Given things are starting to open again it's about to get busy again so a sooner date the better.

Burn it all down, nothing should stop you from making progress on the car!
Jk, you're right about cutting grass though. W/ the amount of rain we be getting my brother and I find ourselves cutting the grass nearly twice a week.
Doesn't help w/ all the humidity and sudden heat waves too to not want to work on the car lol.

Nial that sucks, I guess it's just the waiting game now. How long do you think you have to wait until the builder is comfortable with coming over to tap+drill the holes?

i have the rpm n speedo cluster needles. don't know wtf happened to the water n gas needles. im actually needing to buy a st202 beams gauge cluster. cause i only need the rpm assembly from it. but don't want to pay a ridiculous amount for it.

i'll see if i misplaced the needles somewhere


Lol it's all good if you cannot find it. Given the amount of time and w/ a spare cluster I may end up trying to paint them myself. Plus ended up getting some aftermarket cluster faces so need to wait on that anyhow.

Lighting update! I finally got around to re-lighting the gauge cluster. At first the idea was to do LED strips for the main display so it's brighter.
However upon swapping out the three 194's w/ the LED variants I have I might conclude that it's bright enough. I may still try out the LED strip on my spare cluster to see how it looks.

Note there are ~ 12 type-74 bulbs (9 standard, +1 for CRUISE, +1 for ABS, +1 for O/D aka overdrive for AT cars). And so I noticed that my gauge cluster is from an A/T.
Don't recall if this is the original cluster or not though, I do have a spare one that doesn't have the cut outs for CRUISE, ABS, and O/D.

Also noticed that I don't have the bulb for the CHECK ENGINE light. That scared me for a bit but going back to the original thread I think I know why they removed it.
IIRC this is b/c the car currently has CEL codes due to the swap. I may add it in just in case; but we'll see as I hate seeing the check-engine light on all the time.
Plus that light won't tell me much anyways if it's on all the time. Better just to check w/ the hidden OBDII stuff.

Since I had the DCW cluster as well I went ahead with re-sanding and fixing the crack on the cluster.
But I still need to primer and paint the cluster (high gloss black). For now enjoy some of the "rough draft" photos of test fitment.




Last thing is to remove the hue color so the outline is white instead of tan/green. Also I remember someone having red needles... Hmmm that would be nice to have he he he...

is there a 3000k bulb for the fogs? would be more practical than tinting the fogs.


There is; but I do also like the yellow tint in general. I might do all of them; but we'll see. Going to try half the lights and see if I like it.

njccmd2002 would you ever consider selling your front bumper?
would love to have that instead of the typical gt4 front.
