I know it's a bit of money, but if your concerned about the heat from the downpipe get the ceramic coated berk downpipe. The decrease in heat is unreal!

For sure! When I got that downpipe, funds were low. Seeing I have it now, I plan to run it til it cracks, which it will lol.

Just going to wrap it for now, but a Burk is def on the horizon.

Guestion for you folks.

Trying to figure out what to do about the BOV and its re-circulation. I have the OEM one, with the top of the air box, and hose, but I do not have the bottom of the box. Didn't come with swap. So that means I cannot just drop it all in there, I need to find means to make all this work.

I considered a Apexi kit that has the adapter for the OEM BOV, but I'm not seeing anywhere I can really pick that up unless I get it from Japan. Thats a long wait.

So, I have a piece of my old weapon R intake pipe that has a line for 1 hose, and 1 sensor. So I think that will work.

I feel like my only option is to get an after market BOV and latch it up to the IC.

If thats it, do you guys know of any reasonable BOVs I could purchase. Looking for less then 300$ - been searching all day, but its a bit confusing and i don't want to drop a bunch of coin on a valve that will be dead in a year.

Just looking for a reasonable path. If I have to bit the bullet I will...

I am running an HKS induction kit with the oem bov location blocked off and a HKS SSQV bov. Both you can probably find for less than $300
Otherwise you can run the OEM air box and block off the bov section and run the bov on the intercooler. You will need an adapter to run the bov off the intercooler. ( if you need a complete air box let me know I have one I can sell)

stretching my memory here, but I'm pretty sure the bottom of the airbox is the same between st205 and st204. I am personally a fan of the has ssqv iiii. I have it routed straight off of the intercooler with the adapter that 4eyed mentioned. It's worked perfectly for me.

Appreciate the tips guys on the air situation.

I have a OEM box on the way for the time being, until I decide to revise that area. To much going on right now to mess with all that, when I can just OEM it up, and tinker later.

Finally got the fans mounted up to the rad. Took some time because I forgot to order the mounts, thought they came with the kit, but nope.

Tapping the posts to 1/4 20 and sizing mount rods.



And completed



May have finally done something right here, and I feel pretty confident I shouldn't have cooling issues. Was a big concern down here in FL.

Waiting on odds and ends at the moment. Order some guages, and some temp sensors for the IC and Rad. Coming from overseas so it'll be feb before those are in. Moving along moving along.

Wrapping the down pipe.

Also can see the gauge cluster has come in. Wanted a over the vent style one, but couldn't find it. Lo-tek came through, with a pretty good fitting one, should require little work to fit.







That'll do

Finally!

Found a facelift bumper on ebay, that was a 2 hour drive away.

So went and saw Daytona beach, and grabbed the bumper for a crisp 215 from the salvage yard.

Guy said he had 13 calls after I purchased it on Ebay, he says he sells nearly every bolt on 94-99 Celicas. lol



Needs some loving, but I'll fix it up.

Oh...anyone have any clear turns?

Lol yea, wasn't cheap but I was tired of looking. I sporadically looked over the last 2 years and not finding one, or one that would ship was one of my de-motivators in this project.

Yea no fogs, but I'm okay with that, I didn't want them wink.gif

WTF....$215? That's a rip off.
You could have bought a brand new one from the dealer for $250...

Well did try to do some work over the weekend.

Managed to get the pump wired up, no pictures really needed for that.

I did go to get the belts put on, and discovered I have lost my power steering pump top bolt. Pitched a fit, and tore the whole place apart, and couldn't find it, or anything like it.
I know my junk is cluttered, but I actually know where everything generally is.

Driving in this morning to work, I remembered what I did with it. I took it off the 3s and put it on the 5s, then forgot to take it back off when I sold the 5s.

So yea, new one on order from Yota, for 6 dollars. Once it gets here, I can move forward.

Hey guys, I have not quit =P

I have surgery next week, simple stuff, but can't lift 10lbs for 6 weeks. So it may be difficult for me to progress for a little bit.

So with that, I've been quite busy at work making sure everything is in order.

Waiting on some parts anyway, but I will get back to it asap.

Thanks man!

I think I might spend the time wiring the guages and such, that doesn't take much effort or lifting =)
