TRDGT4
well here's a bit of history of my Celica Gt4 "TRDGT4"
Bought the completely standard about four years ago after a few mods it look like this

And then by the end of 2007 it look like this

but then i had problems BIG problems

The Thurst washers in the engine came out causing major engine damage luckly the pistons and rods were unharmed and would live another day so that brings us into the rebuild:

engine out it was then a case of stripping everything out of the engine bay for a complete respary in classic 040 Toyota white

While the car was getting its new coat of paint I source another block and began the rebiuld I also managed to get a complete engine from a GTT Caldina for which I used the Head and Intake including injectors, I then set about match porting the head and having a custom set of cams ground which included facing the Valves and having all the seats recut with a custom three angle profile and have all the tappets set with custom shims, I also added some HKS adjustable cam gears and had the intake manifold ceramic coated. The block got rebored out .5mm and the bottom end was balanced and block decked
New Engine

new engine being fitted

So now with the engine back in the hole the custom wiring job started and after 20 hours (that's just on the wiring) it runs
but not fully completed and ready for road yet (hanging out to drive her again though)
below are a few pics of the work that has gone in






I'll keep adding pics as i get closer to driving her enjoy

sure no problem i'll probably wait untill October for the tune as it gives the engine a good chance to be run in and also gives me enough time to sort out any little bugs she might have (hoping not many if at all but fingers crossed on that one we all know what race engines are like)
