I ran into one of the guys from Petrolicious (on YouTube) a while back and stayed in contact. He has one of the cleanest unmolested 2nd gen MR2s I've seen. He sent me a text earlier today asking to meet up since he's testing out a new camera and wanted to shoot the four. Had a mini shoot down at Warehouse 1. These were unedited, quick and dirty since the battery was dying faster than expected. Round 2 is in the works with his 2, 3sgte siblings.



This one shows just how desperately the front end needs a lip/splitters with the TRD sideskirts.


And one of my humble, no photography background shots

I would but I can't decide what direction I want to go! I love the look of the C-One front lip on the OE bumper but I think it flows a lot better with regular sideskirts. But then I think the rear looks the best with TRD splitters but those do not flow well with regular sideskirts lol such a struggle.

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..


Yes! Thank you! This is exactly how I want to set up my Supra. People give me the dumbest looks when I tell them my end goal isn't a 1500hp drag monster. -___-

Yeah I know what you mean, I fail to see what's so wrong with just doing some bolt-ons and other improvements here and there and calling it a day. Especially when it's a daily driver, it's like omgerd every F-body, Supra, RX-7, Corvette, etc... doesn't have to be an 1,000+ hp beast that's useless on the streets.

It's been a while since I've updated. Mostly just posting these to keep track

BRD poly rear diff mount and shifter bushings. As you can see, the old ones were absolute trash (surprised by how well it drove with that ripped mount though!)


BRD Polyurethane Engine mounts as well. Just front installed for now.




Late Spec JDM Tails and Ti Exhaust (Much quieter and smoother now, finally)


Along with other odds and ends from a junkyard Celica like the plastic wheel well lining, seat bracket covers, windshield sprayer nozzles, rear ash tray, etc..

I still need new suspension as the knocking is only getting worse. Looks like I'll be dropping some pounds (get it, because UK lol) in the near future.

Negative. Previous owner threw it in with the sale. I'm not sure why he changed it to be honest. It's a great sounding exhaust.

Alright! Back again for another update! I desperately needed suspension, soooo I buy projectors instead! I'll let the pictures do the talking.









OH, WAIT A SECOND!! WHAT ARE THAT?! If you guessed brand new front pipes (B-pipe, PITA-pipe, etc.) then you'd be right!! I was beyond excited to see them pop up on TCB's website. Waited more than a year for these to hit the shelves since my flex section had a heinously annoying leak. Ordered them Monday night, showed up on my doorstep Thursday biggrin.gif Anyways! Great quality piece with damn near perfect fitment between my Berk downpipe and Ti rear. It's mind blowing to finally hear my car with a sorted exhaust!!



Potentially NSFW below!
#stackeddimes #weldporn #gapingholes wink.gif














































I dicked around for about 5min trying to take out the OEM in one piece, until I saw that the size of the hole in flex section spanned about 1/4 of the circumference. Gave it the ol' finger and cold worked it until I made 1 = 2.



And I'm still on the hunt for a blue fuel cap door rolleyes.gif Someone please help me not look so damn ricer. Seriously...I'll pay someone to go to a local junkyard that has a baltic blue Celica and take it off for me.....and then you can come to my place and really take it off for me wink.gif Alright I'm done lol



Stay tuned to see what I buy next instead of new suspension!

RIP suspension. Priorities, telling you what. tongue.gif At least the exhaust was a safety hazard, fumes and what not.

You could always get some touch up paint in an aerosol can and paint the fuel door yourself.
