Have a ton of parts on the way. Just waiting for them to arrive kindasad.gif ordered all the brake components to go to the GT4 set up. Hope it all is correct. Have the following on the way.
-GT4 calipers (front and rear)
-EBC GT4 rear rotors and brake pads
-EBC Supra front brake pads
-Centic sloted and drilled front BRZ rotors 292mm (I believe)

Hopefully it will be everything I need! Looking forward to getting everything. Still unsure of what color to do the calipers.

the supra TT rear pads are the same for the GT-4 rears also (I just saw them left out on your list)

also dont forget about the bridge seals in the calipers if you plan to powder coat them!

Well I ordered the ST205 package deal from EBC rear rotors and pads. The front I did order Supra pads. Actually the exact part # from your thread smile.gif

Could do the calipers to match the body colour, that or being the car is neutral coloured you could technically choose any colour you like as an accent colour to carry throughout the car.

Sadly got an email from EBC about shipping the rear rotors.. They wanted an additional $180 for shipping. So I canceled that, couldn't justify it. So I'm still in need of rear rotors kindasad.gif

More stuff. Got my beautiful steering wheel and Works Bell hub. Looks amazing, excited to install it! Also got my Tanabe Hyper Medalion muffler, and resonator. Exhaust is getting done now. Tires and license plate garnish waiting for install. Still waiting on the wheels, should be here Monday, along with a set of JDM Projector head lamps. Carbon parts should be here by the end of next week along with the seat rails and sliders. The seats are still about a month out:/

Wheels have arrived!

Along with some projector headlamps.

Got the exhaust installed. Sounds really really good, better then I expected. Really quite, but a nice deep tone while taking off. No rasp at all. While cruising at a steady speed you can hardly hear it in the cabin.

Mean while, here is a teaser shot smile.gif Full pictures are soon too come.


Looks like I'm going to be picking up some SS_III front spats, does any one know if these fit the GT4 front end well? I have seen them installed before and they look great, at least in pictures. I wasn't sure if there would be any gaps though, between the bumper and spats.

After having trouble with the company I purchased the GT4 calipers through, and trouble getting the rear rotors (For a decent price) I decided to say screw this, canceled the order on the calipers and purchased the Wilwood kit. Hopefully they get here in a timely manor. In the future I will still upgrade the rear brakes to units from a GT4.

On a side note, has anyone ever put a 2j in a 6th gen?

There is a 1JZ swapped Celica that was/is used for drifting (the same one posted on your Facebook page.) A 2JZ is possible but not a good idea for a few different reasons. However, I wouldn't mind seeing a 4G63 swapped Celica as you mentioned on Facebook.

Yea the 2j was just a thought. I know the 4G like the back of my hand. This may happen come next winter. Not sure what I would do trans wise.

For a 2JZ swap, transmission wise, the V160 6spd would be the best option, but also the most expensive. V160/V161 cost more than the 2jzgte engine. $7k new and $4-5k used for 6speed.
It is the most expensive part on a Supra.
The alternative(Toyota wise): W58 and R154. Bot are not as stout but good enough.
Least expensive alternative: 300z transmission(requires adapter plate).

Not to mention all the extensive fabrication to get it done, honestly if you want RWD you're better starting off with something RWD. You should get a Mitsubishi Starion since they already came with a 4G63 everywhere else but here, so swapping one in should be easy I imagine. Now that would be a fun car, it's still on my list of cars to get.

While swapping a 4G63 in a Starion is very simple that's not really what I'm looking for. Fabrication, time, hardwork and money is fine as long as it's worth it.. A Rwd 4g63 powered 6gen with Gt4 exterior conversion is about as abnormal you can get smile.gif and that is what I like. Anyways just spitballing ideas. Not something I'd like to take on right now anyways. More focused on just enjoying the car this summer.
Oh my carbon fiber parts came in early too smile.gif

They look lovely!

I think it'd be awesome but it is a lot of work. There's a project thread around here somewhere in the project section that had some good info on converting to RWD though I think they mostly used it for drag racing. The carbon fiber parts look really nice.
