Custom brackets fits just fine with caliper/rotors combo



Test fit is a succes !








I can't wait to hit them HARD !

Here we go ;

Rotors are wilwood srp 14''x1.10'' , got them on ebay for 550 $. At the time to pay seller ask me if I want the wilwood hats for 125 $ more . They were made for corvette so I got them redrilled to 5x100.

After that I decided to match the rotors with wilwood 6 pistons calipers . Choice are radial or lug mount . Bought them on ebay also , 850$ with polymatrix pads type E compound . I prefer and buy lug mount caliper because it's easier to make the bracket .

Finally I contact a brake company specialized in custom brake with all my specs to get the bracket made . They already have the celica hub mounting/offset mesurement , I just tell them the specs of the calipers and rotors/hats .I got also the brakes lines and all hardware (spacers , bolts , washers) total 350$ .

The only issue I have are the pads fitment over the rotors. Wilwood list the calipers I have to go over 14'' rotors but they don't . So I need to re-profiled the pads .250'' lower to get them flush to the dics.

The total is 1875$ for the package. Ksport kits are approx. the same but I decided to go with custom parts + wilwood for cheap replacement parts in futur .


Unfortunately , I won't try the brakes before next year ; winter is already with us here ; 5 degree F today ....

I recently buy 2 x E58 LSD tranny from japan levin GTZ (4agze) . I'm in the process to check the fitment issues.

Just bolted with the block



Front tranny mount is not a long shot .





Rear mount will be custom made .



Just clearing the steering rack



The 2ND tranny with spare 7afe block

A lot of new things , no time to update so I will make a little effort .

I'm in the process of redone the interior





I add the water injection and 4 channel egt gauges at the bottom of the center console



Then I modify the cluster trim to adapt a complete stack dash





A little carbon fiber touch



A little glue over the plastic adaptor



I think I just need the stack dash now .

Here is the link ; http://www.ebay.com/sch/the1store2011/m.ht...p;_trksid=p3686

Your choice of size and tickness .

The most diffficult was to cut the round shape to get nice fitment inside the cluster trim .

I'm very near to complete the E58 gearbox swap . I almost finish to collecting parts ;

Billet aluminum flywheel with quatermaster 7.25 '' twin disc




Rear motor mount with urethane (not insert) , still need to make the base to bolt on the crossmember.



Custom made axels shaft from DSS



Dowel pin on the crankshaft with ARP bolts , 6 bolt on 7afe flywheel is a know source of problem .....



It's such a long process but at least I do it right the first time .

Hope you enjoy !

Well , the 7a become more popular because it bolt to the 4ag 16/20v but is not a logical choice in the celica. I just want a different , more unique setup . There are some parts available, just need to search more .
