So me and Dustin (Batman722) decided to postpone the wedding another year and buy another 6th gen project instead...
That and the 99 Solara I've been using as a winter car is going to my sister in a few weeks so we needed to have one available to each of us as a 'winter beater'.
We have my green 97 ST turbo, Dustin's blue 95 GT ST205 swapped, his silver 95 ST

And let me introduce the new addition to our Celica family,
1994 Celica GT, 5spd, black interior, sunroof, Florida car without New England rust.
Very bad rod knock and a very bad radiator meant we had to have it towed home where it stayed until it was again towed to Manny, Jenn and Randi's garage.





We decided to swap in a Redtop 3S-GE Beams
We cleaned it up, timing belt, waterpump, tensioner, prepped to go in











^inside the intake manifold, taken through the throttle body







And as of tonight, it is in the car and running,











And Manny fabricated the whole exhaust, from the b-pipe all the way back. I do not have good pics of it, someone else will have to insert them.
We should be able to take some better pics tomorrow in the daylight. So far, very fun biggrin.gif

and more pics smile.gif

Day 1
starting out in the garage





pull the beat down 5s and put it where it belongs



remove ABS, install non abs lines/master





paint engine bay black



better pic



day 2
get the beams in the bay


I spy a tan line

lightweight FW then OEM Beams disk, st185 pp, and s54 tob and a wicked cool SS braided clutch line wink.gif





day 3

button things up and have Manny make an incredible exhaust.











and the exhaust - just unbelievable - I'm speechless every time I look at it.



end of day 3, drive home smile.gif

once we cranked it over a few times to get some fuel in it, it started just fine. It idles a bit high right now (about 1100) so me and Stef will diagnose it tomorrow.

and driving impressions...it's quick and pulls great all the way to redline smile.gif

more pics tomorrow in the daylight.

Awesome Thread. Exhaust looks great. Wish I had got the bpipe with mine.

Im curious how you cleaned the inside of the intake manifold so clean. Did you just take it off and let brake clean sit in there for a while? Do tell!! Thanks.

Wow, that was some crazy progress... Manny, you do good exhaust fabrication! I might have to drive up there and pay you to do mine when I get ready to swap! Lol. Is the body going to stay like that since it's a winter beater or will you guys clean it up?

Manny sprayed it the Toyota 3L2 red, I believe he used automotive paint from work.

oh true, last thread I remembered was, you guys just buying the celica (I dont think I heard about the 3s swap though)

on another note
you've pretty much had all the celica motors: (7afe +T, 5sfe + T ,3sgte, now a 3sge beams)

It was idling a little high the first day, as Dustin mentioned, but today it was perfectly fine. The ECU just needs a few days to relearn everything.

Just some nicer pics in the daylight...

haha we never had a 5sfte wink.gif

after driving for a day the idle is just fine, actually perfect.

today we changed the rear sway bar bushings, installed the rear strut bar, set the radio stations and drove that thing hard biggrin.gif It feels like normal until about 3.5-4K rpms then it gets going and keeps going. It pulls right until 7200 and is quick.

next we're going to do suspension (endlinks, ball joints <-toasted, new struts, springs, tie rods) hopefully before winter, then next spring body work, paint, and wheels. The color we picked is gonna be incredible on a 6gen biggrin.gif
