hey guys my names David picked up a celica two months ago and have been restoring it in my back yard lol its a 1994 6gen st i bought the celica for 3 hundred but it needs some work the front bumper was a vader bumper that wasn't in the greatest shape all cracked and the fenders were drilled in with screws to hold the bumper the fender the same thing so i basically had to get anew front end and skirts
the interior was put all dissembled so yeah had a lot of work cut out for me but got lucky that my brother had a celica before so hes been helping me out put it together its coming along nicely plans for the car gt four conversion its going to be my daily car but then i want to also be able to do some auto x with it as well probably gonna turbo in the future because i know a swap into a st is pretty hard and expensive and im still in college and on a buget

Will have to get some pictures up when you can. They're nice handling cars with some aftermarket suspension bits and good tires. There are a few members here that autocross their Celica and could point you in the right direction.

Two words stand out...

Colllege..... Budget....

Enjoy your st engine.

Swap or turbo is not for a budget person. Seriously

I will have to agree as well.
and I STILL have my ST engine. I do quite enjoy it now that i've got most of the suspension redone.

I will always suggest that you start out with upgrading the suspension (springs/struts or coilovers, endlinks, sway bars, strut bars, brakes, rims etc.) makes the car alot more fun to drive and enjoy.

As far as the transmission goes I'd make sure the clutch is fully disengaging first and if that checks out you can try draining the trans and filling it with SynchroMesh, more often than not it helps and some say it got rid of any and all grinding. Just depends on how much damage has been done and how responsible the current oil is for the issue.

Swap or turbo is not for a budget person. Seriously



Did not mean to sound like an ass. Any swap is 3k or above. Ive seen too many owners simply trading to other high performance cars simply for this. Putting 3k on a 1k car is not practical for everyone but a few. Hence my comment.

Tining mk6 celica is not cheap either.

any updates on this?

having a Celica ST I can honestly say springs and shocks from a convertible with sticky tires and a 6 puck unsprung clutch was very fun in the AUTO X world.
