I've read somewhere else that you have a Tanabe DF210 spring set... I'm also waiting for mine to arrive. Could you please upload some photos when you finish installing them?
Thank you very much and congratulations for that Beams engine!

ya man no problem Ill take a pic, so far I've noticed that with the heavier 3sge engine vs my old 7afe set up the wheel gap is a little less, before it was 4 fingers with 7afe and now its 3.5 fingers with 3sge engine.

haha yes update with no pics I finally got the car on the road today. Man it feels so damn good!! biggrin.gif tongue.gif

Was dealing with some brake issues but got them sorted out 30 min ago. The car pulls nice so far, but I've only revved it to 4,000 rpm. Haven't felt the sweet spot off vvt-i from 4-7rpm. The brakes are a massive upgrade so far from my ST Setup. My Short Ram intake sounds so sick!!! basically like my buddy's ap2 s2000 but not as high revving.

The Down pipe Exhaust size is 2.25" then goes to 2" from the de-cat back and then to 1.75 inches from the exhaust muffler and out. Its so restrictive and the exhaust sounds like crap. I'll post some pics by tuesday or wednesday. Spending 12 hours today with the celica was a real pita, and that's how I spent my 21st bday haha.

Well plenty of work ahead of me wink.gif

Dude! Take that thing up to 7000 RPM smile.gif

That 1.75 exhaust might be a problem though.

ah yes the 2 inch to 1.75 exhaust piping on the stock gt is restrictive. Although at the moment I have no catalytic converter. Not good as cops can smell my exhaust fumes. I'll get that fixed next weekend.

heres the video of my custom made intake hehe

ya im not sure what norbert is talking about. Im sure he doesn't know how to loom the engine either. In japan when they used to race the SS-III celica they would put the rev limiter at 8,600rpm where it would produce peak power. So theres no way he's able to hit 9,000 rpm on his stock engine.

Ya the intake sounds just like a k20 but needs the extra 1,000 rpm to sound like it, and as you can see by the video my idle problems are very minimal. If you hear the intake right before I start to rev it you'll notice it starts to make a weird noise, but otherwise it works great.. The intake sounds much better in person biggrin.gif my camcorder is a bit old.

For real? But there's no way that engine would pass a visual test in California

update: wont stop making noise, front sway bar components, brake components, pooping noise when going over bumps/dips!!!. Ordered the wrong power slot rotor for the 91 celica gt. Stupid mosaic motorsports didn't list 94-00 celica rotor but listed it as 2000 Celica GT. So i thought the 7th gen gt brake rotor was different. Great now I have to wait another week till Friday or so to make the exchange through US Post office.

This is seriously like the never ending storry! question is will I ever be able to drive my celica without it making a noise. This is driving me up the wall

mad.gif

Jan 22nd to March 26 = Car still not in perfect driving condition, and its my daily driver as well. man this sucks

Will it be sweet once the correct rotor is installed?

I read somewhere in the thread "what parts from other gens are compatible with our cars" that "7th gen brakes are compatible and in theory so are 7th gen big brake kits"

Btw I doubt you can smell fumes from another car, it has to be really old and ****ty, like a VW Combi van with black smoke or something
