I usually pickup a copy of Redline magazine and Fast Car every month because i like how europeans tune their cars. Any ways, i went to the local book store where i get the issues, but Fast Car wasnt in yet, so i picked up Redline. Check out the cover....

This guys got apparently the fastest street legal GT4 in the UK. Its completely gutted and kinda custom too. I would scan the article, but my scanners broken, so i took some pics instead.

he put in a set of Imprezza altezza style tails in instead of maybe going with a set of afterburners or JDM tails.
IPB Image
hes got a front exit exhaust too, but i donno what the point of the big section of the fender missing is.
IPB Image
he also made the spoiler wider too.
IPB Image
my fav mod of the car though, the carbon fiber mirrors. They actually look good too.

If i can get my scanner working, ill try and get the entire article put up.

Awesome.

I love how he's resisted the urge to make cosmetic changes to the body kit. Two extra blisters on the hood and those side scoops, and that's about it. Sweet.

i doubt it..he might b on celica-club.co.uk though.

Personaly i think when tufy gets his squential tranny in, its gonna b better then this guys. He has a custom made 5spd tranny in it with stronger gears, but they arent straightcut. Plus i think tufys is a bit nicer mainly because he actually has an interior with his.

im working on it. Ill re-write out all of his mods in a bit.

I really like what he's done to the car (with the exception of the bare interior, but hey, you gotta lose the weight somewhere I guess). All that custom stuff, truly one of a kind.

Yes, to be that young with that kind of money...sigh... kindasad.gif

i have to say that this is a very nice moded gt four. i liked it... mostly fuel pumps and custom intake manifold.

it says car is road legal.. wtf road legal with an exhoust coming out from front fender!!!
it writes '' with 588 bhp. matt has hit low 12's at santapod'' exact number!!!! then where is dyno page and low 12's hımmm... there is many cars here at 6gc.net faster than that..

about my car. its all about what you want and like.
i like a weekend race car more than a drag car, i like to go for a ride with my wife. i like to listen music when driving. i like how 18'' rims looks. smile.gif
its early to compare performance. still dont have results.
but i can say that dog box and seq shifter is fantastic wink.gif

Looks like a Galant butt-raped an Eclipse and the rear was their child. Even the GT-FOUR spoiler looks like it came of the Galant. I hate the wheels, and the color. I only like the front. I love the performance, though. smile.gif

Maybe it grew back? haha.

So like under his mods list for exterior, it says that he has a rear TRD spoiler, BUT it does not!

ive never seen altezza tails for a celica... where do you get them

nice race car.

i agree with tufy, if your exhaust is coming out your FRONT BUMPER, i wouldnt call that "road legal" lol
nice build...nothing out of the ordinary for me tho, mr2oc guys have been building motors like this for a few years now, as well as the guys on the other side of the pond, ect.
and i thought the horniak's exhaust was crazy with the side exit...i think this one tops it..LMAO

I feel sorry for him because he spent all that money to only get that amount of horsepower. People here in the island buy Evos left and right and with a simple turbo kit pieced with AMS goodies and other parts, and a Hydra EMS, they surpass the 600 AWHP mark. He has all this race stuff, and only puts out 5XX AWHP? I think he wasted his money. I'm sure somebody shares this same feeling.

No, because the reason I posted that in my sig is because, as everybody and their mother knows, the 7A-FE is an ECONOMY-oriented engine. By pretty much anybody's (with a working brain) standard, dumping money on this engine is a waste. Many people that started with a 7A-FTE, gave up on it, quit the project, and later swapped in a 3S-GTE.

With the money most spend on a 7A-FTE project and getting it running right without breaking, a 3S-GTE swap with all the toys could be completed, and have twice the horsepower (without a sweat) that the 7A-FTE could ever push out without failure. He has a 3S-GTE, which is a PERFORMANCE-oriented engine that can handle ridiculous power. I hope this clarifies your doubt, which I'm sure was honest and not on grounds of instigating. wink.gif

Remember its a UK car and we can do pretty much whatever we want to our cars, there are very few restrictions.

As much as people on here say they would preffer other guages than autometer ones, it's kinda sad to see all this money spent on this car and then to settle for cheaper guages....ehh, oh well....


I like the fact that it's a celica on the cover and overall I like the car, but just not massively impressed. Like some have already said, "seen better", but still enjoying it. wink.gif

Hi guys

Does anyone who who owns this car now? Nearly bought it from Frankenstein motorsport myself when Matt wanted 12000 for it but my Max was 11000, then one day I see it down to 8000 odd I nearly gave birth but when I rang it was sold with a smaller turbo etc..

Some fella bought it and has videos of it on YouTube but isn't replying and I'd like to buy it now!
