Did he not notice the different downpipe in the bay? laugh.gif
That's a huuuuuge difference!


Right?!?
The real huge difference is when you do a pull to red line, the 3in dp screams to 7k and wants more while the stock dp falls on its face around 6k

Unfortunately, MVP Motorsports is backordered for a few weeks on their Berk downpipes. Right now, there is some 2nd gen ebay special. It's putting some good strain on the flex section of the b-pipe...

I guess there is only one logical solution. Jump to big turbo setup..

Can't remount just the muffler on a full exhaust unless I cut and reweld. Not gonna happen. Thanks though thumbsup.gif

Looks good! Bars are quite long but I'm sure the extra space can be useful . I bet a Toyota decal would look nice across that wind fairing if that's your sort of thing

are those 15" rims or 17"? I'm debating putting back on stock size rims and tires on my celica after I swapped out my 17" rims and low profile tires for my old stock rims with snow tires. the stock/snow tires feel so much better and even seem to turn nicer at regular speeds. not sure what the benefits of the large rims and low profile tires are except for looks.

Thanks. I'm just surprised how much of a crappy ride my 17" rim/low profile tires were. I know they're more responsive when cornering but all the other drawbacks don't make them good for a daily driver.

After putting a lot of thought into the direction I want to take this car (mostly during the long drive from CO to CA and then some drives up the coast and into the canyons), I've finally decided on my way forward. Purpose built track car, daily driver, weekend warrior, high HP, or GT car were all on my list of possibilities.

Well, I have decided that I'd put good use of the GT in GT-Four. I know, I know, rally car and whatnot but on the drive out I realized that this car is capable of the very definition of a grand touring car, "...grand tourers, able to make long-distance, high-speed journeys in both comfort and style." And yes, I realize Supras may be better suited for this kind of build but I do not have one..

Anyways, from this point forward, that is my focus. Quiet, comfortable, fast, yet still plenty of fun in the canyons. I have a few primary parts in mind but will continue to research.

Furthermore, here is a picture from my journey today lol I just started driving up 405, took an exit when I got bored, and ended up on Tujunga Canyon (The carbon fiber sticker/wrap on the gas cover annoys me to no end but I'm afraid to pull it off as the back of the cover is grey)

My first thoughts on mods (all up for discussion):

-BC Coilovers type RA or RH/ 6kg front and 4kg rear
-Interior sound manipulation (open to ideas. I carpet padded my first Celica but maybe there is a more elegant solution)


I don't have specific power goal in mind since "fast" is extremely relative. I'd like to say 350whp is good but to me that's just a number and I don't want to put a number on it quite yet. What would be more interesting would be a gearing modification. I think the transmission would do a bit better with a 6th gear but I know that's not feasible (or is it? Haven't done much research on it).

Current power bits include:
-3in intake
-3in PC'd Berk downpipe
-3in exhaust (except for the b-pipe)
-and a manual boost controller that I don't think is doing much as it will barely hit 14psi (might be my spring is just worn)

I'm still deciding what coilover I want for mine and I've been looking into the bc's it seems like a lot of people choose them!

From personal experience, go with a new strut and spring combo. Coils combined with superstrut made for a harsh ride even with the softest setting. Add a Whiteline rear sway bar and it will out handle most cars out on the road.

I drew the same conclusion, i even changed the direction of my project build to suit a GT type car, fast when it needs to be, but also a comfortable nice place to be. An all out rally car is just too much and i decided i would get bored with it very quickly, climbing over a roll cage to get in and out ceases to be fun after a while.

I agree, having had both on a GT4, coilovers are a little harsh for a daily drive, new springs and shocks are a much more comfortable option, cheaper too. Although Thats down to the individual, i like quite firm suspension on my cars so coilovers on a soft setting suit me...just, but my car isnt a daily driver.

If you can find Eibach springs they are great and i recommend them above all others.

Thanks for the input guys, truly appreciated! I feel myself swaying (lol) a bit towards the new strut/spring combo.
I have not ridden in a Celica with coilovers so I really don't know the characteristics. Honestly, I've only had Celicas with poor suspension so this should make a world of difference!
