Hopefully you fix the transmission as well, if not at least it'll be a good bit easier. I'm interested.

what do you mean fix the transmission? kindasad.gif sorry I'm really new to this I noticed you guys no so much and if I would of never found this web site I wouldn't be this far on my build. I swear all you guys inspired me to do this I found so much passion for this car here that it made me spark my flame back up for my celica and now I'm going trough with it. I cant believe it

here is an update I would I have purchased so far.
1mzfe
transmission kit soon to arrive in the mail.
Dakota digital speedometer SGI5
celica S3 gauge cluster soon to arrive
coolant reservoir 3.0
power steering reservoir 2.2
alternator 3.0
starter 3.0
igniter 3.0
fuel tank vapor pressure 3.0
ac compressor 3.0
ecu 3.0
air flow meter 3.0
power steering pump 3.0
wiring harness 97 celica
wiring harness 3.0
charcoal canister 3.0
2002 celica rims
Toyota tires
fog lights should arrive soon from Bulgaria
Hopefully member Arsaces will sell me the KYB SHOCKS I already have first dips on the TEIN Springs yes !!!!!!
biggrin.gif
I will purchase the seat covers from Vince doggy soon. I just need to go step by step with my build,

parts I need and if anyone has some input on parts I'm missing let me know please just don't mention ABS breaks that stuff scares me I like to control my car I don't like the car controlling me lol
I need the power steering lines from a gt 2.2 6gen celica and some stock mud flaps. I payed japukspares for some but they never arrived so he refunded my money back hopefully some one out there has some stock mudflaps?
also in need of a head liner and the sunroof was custom made so I'm just going to make it a fifth glass now and remove all the mechanism and no need for it to open since it never worked for me lol


I need to pay Jeff for the 5 speed transmission and labor however since a drunk driver hit my car I had to wait for an estimator to come over and look at my car so now I'm just waiting for the check and still debating on the paint job its either white for the body and gloss black rims tinted windows not to dark don't wanna break the law and smoked out lights or flat black body with gloss black rims and tinted windows not to dark with smoked out lights pretty much ghost rider lol

Also one more thing this car will be my daily driver however I will be spending lots of time at the race way I don't like street racing to dangerous for me plus I'm to old for that already and very new to this. its just not worth it.I don't wanna be another Paul walker when you want a car to go fast take it to a track a good controlled environment is always safe and we could avoid such tragedies I feel bad for his family and kid may Paul walker rest.

Any input you guys let me know I wanna get some more ideas I'm not big on sound systems and such I'm really more worried about handling and horsepower and of course looks I hope this was a good wright up for today?

see you guys

next time my car will be painted and ready for a new heart

I'm going with the S54 tranny it should be good for the swap. what do you guys think? also the only pieces I need are the mounts. Currently waiting for the car to be put back together its in the shop getting the body straighten out the chassis was bend but it was less then a inch so the frame and all should still be pretty strong, also got the new fender and door in, also the front lights and rear lights, there all stock since I wanna keep it looking stock from the outside but the inside will be a different story lol also I'll be purchasing the sunroof assembly from smaay if he still has it available but right now I'm focusing on getting the car out of the body shop and over to smaay's laboratory to get the swap going. oh yea I made my mind up and the car will be painted flat gun metal something similar to the link below let me know what you guys think about that color that's what I'm getting. and same theme smoked out lights all windows tinted and rims black however mines will be gloss black

I try to be as active as possible but working nights and sleep in the day time makes it pretty hard to keep up with answering the post quickly however yea I cant wait to get the car done and I see your in Fresno (ILoveMySilly97) thats cool I bought some rims from one of the members here, he lives some were out in selma, CA pretty cool guy.

Oh yea and the name "97cecilia" is actually the name of my car. I'm making custom metal or alimunum labels for the car instead of it having the word celica on it, the letters will be the same format but the word will be different 97cecilia is what it will say and in the toyota logo keep it the same. I guess it will be a good personal feature?

Also yea since I joined and whent out to pick a few parts from smaay my girl saw all the cars he had in his house and started talking about how cool they are and how nice they looked I think she cought the bug but will have to wait and see lol she already tried having me go buy one for here out in L.A but unfortunetlly the deal droped. I said less focus one thing at a time and I'm sure she will get here soon.

When my car is done I will go to a meet and great event that's my goal.

Also waiting for the autobody shop to get it back together and there waiting on a few parts to them selfs, so is taking a little longer then expected but its getting done right. I'm taking pictures of the progress and when I'm not there they guy in the shop is taking pic's for me, hopefully soon ones my car is done. I'll be able to add all the pictures from the biggining to the end. and maybe a video or two? never know

So the car is now at the lab in smaay garage ready for the new motor. I'm just missing a few pieces the transmission brackets and the exausht manifold other then that I think smaay is making big progress and fast. I'm really exited I just need to get all those parts he needs ASAP.

Anyone of you know the name for those brackets they need to come out of a 6th generation celica gt any help I will appreciated and I think I found the manifold need it for my car.

other then that nothing else at the moment. hopefully smaay can upload a few pictures for you guys to take a sneak peak on whats going on.

ttyl team 6th gen all the way.
