Another option is the Eurou style blocks

naw dude i've been over this before in another post. Euro blocks does not angle the spoiler forward like the oem gt4/ss3 riser blocks do, the angle of the spoiler gives the celica a more aggressive look.

I never really liked the look of the riser blocks and I don't see the purpose if you're not AWD. I'd say just stick with the perfectly designed 94-95 style spoiler.

Do you really feel a difference in airflow at high speeds?

Ya i was never really fond of thr whole gt4 look unless the car was an actual gt4. I dont think the spoiler serves as a purpose unless the rear roof spoiler was fitted. The spoiler wud look better if my car was all one color no doubt. So for now I just might remove the riser blocks n leave it like that.

I just had another thought for your lack of power complaint, are you even revving to 7000?

the 9000 rpm tachometer sort of ends around the same place as the 8000rpm tachometer, the numbers are closer together so when your hitting the 7000 according to your dash it may only be around 5800 - 6000rpm.

if you rev it up to the limiter, just see what point on the gauge it bounces at, it should be either 7000rpm or 7200rpm at the cutoff point (can't remember 3SGE, I know 3SGTE is 7200).

the way the UK guys do it is to use/wire in the entire JDM cluster, put an MPH sticker over the KM/H lettering and then use a 1.6 divider speed signal adjuster so that the speedo and odometers tick over in miles, it also raises the speed cut limit from 200KM/H to effectively 200MPH

you can't go wrong with either the gt-four raise blocks or the ss-iii ones, either one looks good IMO. Also, these cars look a lot better with 17"+ rims smile.gif

edited: any updates on that maf?

i'll get some video footage of me topping out 4th gear yes I know I said it. Its a must so you guys know what I'm talking about, I wonder if my 4th and 5th gears are shorter?? 4th gear reaches 108mph on the speedo which was less than my previous ST Celica in the same gear. I'll also rev all the way upp to redline.

I have beams tachometer and the rpm gauge with a speed signal thing that converts it to mph. Not entirely sure on how the guys did that since the car already came that way. Cut off for beams motor is 7,450 rpm.

As far as the MAF resetting the ecu did help with about 10hp. It just such a shame we only get 95 ron as our top best gas here in CA and all other states get 98 ron.... So buying that race fuel to mix with 95 ron is somewhat expensive. I should be getting my original intake back soon from what the guy told me, he just has to do smog with it. I did put a screen door mesh in front of the maf but it still feels the same. I just need my dyno results. No fun either cause I lost my job on friday so I'm trying to figure out where my income will come from.

I've got connections. I may be able to hook you up with a K&N for around $40.

How do you top in 4th gear? lol my 5th gear tops at about a grand from the redline! but I'm going to install a switch for the speed sensor so it tricks the ecu & etc. haha

You launch in first, shift to second, shift to third, shift to fourth and pull to the top of fourth. Pretty simple procedure.

try re-positioning the maf

also, it's pretty common to lose some low-end torque after installing a cone filter. However, you gain a little bit more at top to compensate.

It's actually 7200, so if you can see the needle reach 7500 then as I was saying your tach isn't calibrated properly.

So when you think you're revving to 4000 and hitting the powerband, your actually not.

here is a youtube video so you can compare. note the rpm gauge.

You said it yourself you are using a S54 transmission with a MR-S LSD, so you are changing the final drive ratio.

Thats why at 4,000rpm your doing 123km/h and the youtube one is doing 141km/h.

I thought he meant that his car tops out in 4th gear, as in 5th gear does nothing speed wise. I was confused at first

Rusty say whatt??!! now you've totally confused me???

Where did you get that conclusion from??? My speed signal is broken or whatever converts the km/h to mph could be screwed up. That makes no sense 30 km/h in first gear is like 15 mph???!!!!

Both you and I know that all SS-III Celica came with a Helical LSD which is the same exact setup that I had. And all the time I've been here on the site I've never read any different specs on the Final Drive Gear for SS-III Celica's or that installing an helical lsd would change my final drive?

on page 3 you said
QUOTE
New S54 Transmission with Fitted MRS Helical LSD

so you have an MR-S LSD not a SS-III LSD.


I chose 4,000rpm as the 'max rpm' in this case, as you and the other guy both did that rpm in your videos. In your video at 4,000rpm (in 5th gear) you were doing 123km/h. In the youtube video when he was at 4,000rpm (in 5th gear)he was doing 141km/h.
You have a different final gear ratio to the SS-III.


yes you can do 30km/h in first at 4,000rpm.
