Ok - we've thought about doing this for quite some time now. Old coupe parts car, hitting the dirt track... with an EVENTUAL beams in the engine bay.

Just some love...











Terribly rusted bumper and bumper mounts





Redneck Car Lift








While in the air we dropped the exhaust and the gas tank and examined the under body. It looks surprisingly GOOD! The shock towers are solid, not rusted. The shocks seem to work, and the rear subframe is for the most part in tact. A removal, sand blast, lube up, and a good painting will make it really smooth for full racecar adjustment.



Back to the interior...







And finally...



Dash Out




And Finally again.... doors and fenders off as well, as well as all glass, no gas tank, no dash, only pedals

No - Just a really rusty beater that barely ran that I picked up for about 400$ about a year and a half ago.
I used the airbag parts and windshield out of it after I hit a deer, sold a bunch of parts off of it to make back some of my money on it, and it's sat there ever since.
The rusty rear bumper mounts broke off when we tugged on the rear towing hook to pull it out of its parking spot.

It spent many a winter in Cleveland

Motor in the red car had a blown soft plug from sitting all winter with nothing but water in the motor and cracked radiator. At 200k, it was time to come out anyway...... Ok rewind a little bit, and we find that I have plans for a BEAMS in this car to DOMINATE the track.... but as to not go in there and win or come close in my first week, I'm electing to slide in under the radar with 5s power for a few weeks... and then BEAMS THE H*LL OUT OF THEM! LOL

So this 5s power.... where is it coming from. Why the spot where all of my other parts have come from 6gc and my friends Richee3 and Celicasaurus...

We begin with a CLEAN 162xxx k mile 5s with a TORCHED automatic tranny.

2 hours worth of work....


Redneck engine hoist





Evidence of TORCHEDNESS




The separation...




The inside of the tranny bell housing



The motor sits right now with the torque converter off, the flex plate off, and awaiting the MT flywheel and other assorted bolts before being mounted to a spare subframe and being installed via the bottom like I do all my motor pulls and swaps... Only way to do it if you can leave the car still and don't need it "rolling" IMHO

All for today... maybe more tomorrow - maybe some RHD building... just depends on what I want to do

What? Torched? I don't k ow what you're talking about... That tranny was never the victim of any neutral bombing! laugh.gif Looking great, Trace! I'm curious to know how the 5S feels pulling a Celica with no weight. Quick question, are you going to be welding the diff in your trans or leaving it open?

Trans will be welded or LSD'd ... if it looks like we can get some good $ out of the lsd tranny, it'll be welded. And as long as it's under 5s power, it'll def be welded.

if you are going through all this. WHY a BEAMS? that engine is flat out not impressive to me. a V6 will cost you just the same. put a 3MZ in there and call it a day!

I think Turnip prefers a welded diff over his factory S54 with limited slip. Seems like I remember him saying the difference in the final drive (a difference of only .02) was the difference between him topping out and getting passed on the straights or being able to keep pulling and accelerating. However, the BEAMS ECU is limited to 180 km/hr, which I can do in 4th gear so he must have a speed cut defender. It's worth asking him about.
