okay, after 4 months of stress. i havent posted for more than a month and a half, mostly because i thought my celica was the most loserish,non working, piece of crap. everything on my swap went bad. nothen went right, wiring was the biggest mess. spent 500 for someone to do it, rahter not say any names but didnt do anything. spent another 1200 for E.L. prototypes to fix what the other person did. so im about up to 6500-7000 on this project. wish i bought a front clip. but today. wow. took it down to irwindale, was there for a couple of hours and hooked up the wiring harness. tried starting it, nothing, fiddle with some sutff. turn that 15 dollar white key i got off of ebay. vroooooom( no exhaust hooked up yet) and it was on. it was great. i still have to finish the radiator and a mount and waiting for the front mount intercooler. i leave for the marine corps boot camp is 3 weeks, i'll have some time to drive it before i leave. thanks for reading my story and share your comments
