OMG I just took delivery last night. I'm so essited! I'm assuming its the wrc because of the exhaust shield adn the riser on the wing but can canyone confirm this? I'm new to 6th gens I owned a 4th gen for the last 7 years, so I plan on diving headfirst into the game











I still need to get an out of province inspection because it came from Calgary, but it did have a day permit on it so I definitely drove it like I stole it for a couple hours.
Artega
Yup that looks like the WRC because of the heat shield
The riser block isnít so much of an indication for WRC but for the GT-four.
It also looks like you are missing a hood spoiler thatís unique to the WRC. Very excited for you!
Black looks awesome!
schmooot
yah I was wondering about the hood spoiler but I didn't really know what I was looking for
malpaso
I believe if there is hood spoiler than it might be. W/O it is not. Hood spoiler is one of signs of WRC edition models.

wow the gt-four looks absolutely amazing bro. how much did you pay for it? makes me want to get one too! lol
enderswift

schmooot

nammer

Congrats on the car it looks amazing I love black celicas smile.gif
Its a WRC easiest way to tell is by looking at the intercooler as pictured
only wrc's came with that.
The heatshild is a good way as well and of course the roof spoiler but you gotta hope that wasnt added on later.




schmooot
cool.

Is the engine manual from http://sites.google.com/site/resource6gc/s...esource-manuals the same for the wrc? I assume there are some differences but are they major?
FORGMANN
Yes that is 100% a wrc , supershannon is correct easiest way to tell by looking at i/c

i am just as excited as you as my WRC is finally going to frame shop next week

and i just got full OEM st205 recaro interior (f/r match) and seats are incredible and

should have been standard like EVO's get..

Right... I do not remember this weird can under the hood smile.gif.
Cuts_the_Pilot
^^its the antilag valve^^

there is a hose that goes from that to the stock bov on the airbox, and it connects at the bottom to the hoses that go to the piping on the manifold.


congrats on getting the real thing man.

nice car super jealous
schmooot
I just found some scion wheels off a matrix forum that should look very nice on it. I'm waiting to hear back from the guy



whadya guys think?

I just need some confirmation that the 42mm offset on these bad boys will clear my calipers
Hazmat
Wow nice find and grats on owning the real thing thumbsup.gif. As for the rims I personally think they could have potential. Im a fan of the O.Z. Superturismos myself laugh.gif
SwissFerdi
Rims would probably be nice...the color definitely works under black.
johnnehh
Wanna pry off your front bumper and hood and send them to me? I'll pay for shipping! biggrin.gif

Beautiful car man. Just beautiful. Don't do too much to it, it looks great already.

I bought my ST205 from those guys too. Thats my 1993 GT4 in the back ground. Congrats. I think the one you got has TRD supention with slotted front disks? They had two black ones for sale. Very nice ride wink.gif
schmooot
I don't know about the suspension...it is green...and yes the front discs are slotted. The suspension seems really stiff, you can really feel the bumps in the road and potholes....I thought maybe something was wrong or worn but I haven't had a chance to get under there. Maybe you are right and it is something new and stiffer?
SwissFerdi
Green = Tein?
Smaay
I HATE YOU
Cuts_the_Pilot
green is tein usuall, i think some trd's were green also.

The wing is no way to tell whats a WRC/Group A and what isnt, just look at half the cars on here, all fwd, most NA and they have the riser blocks.

the WRC/Group A got things like: anti lag, water injection (the parts are there but the ecu doesnt run them) intercooler spray bar, bonnet spoiler (most have this, its there to reduce bonnet flex at high speed). Some say they had extra welding points over the non grp A/WRC but its not confirmed.

They didnt make any more power then the non group A/WRC so technically they are probably a tiny bit slower because of the small ammount of extra weight, but are more sort after because of rarity...and who doesnt want to say their car came with anti lag stock, hehe.

yea I got some green ones on mine too. Guessing Tein from what everyone else is saying. And yea my ride is super stiff as well, I don't know if the stock ones are much better either since my old ST202 was pretty bad as well. I'm guessing adjustable coil overs are the only way to make it comfortable.
schmooot
guess I'll have to look closer and see if there is a brand stamped on the struts somewhere.

ANd yah it is definitely the wrc. Its impossible to look at everything because its parked in the shop at work until I pass my inspection and I obviously can't just crawl around underneath it when I'm supposed to be working
IBTINTN
They are not teins the are trd with 4 point adjustable damping. Pop of the rubber grommets and you will see the adjustment. I was going to swap them with my stock ones and decided to much work. Here is a link http://www.rhdjapan.com/jdm-low/TRD-Shock-...per-Strut-53620. I talked to them yesterday and they said it was not a wrc. But it sure dose look like one.

you talked to who? and what car are you talking about?
richee3
Nice buy! Those wheels will look good on it, if they fit.
paul_gt4
lovely looking motor, reminds me of the original one i seen many years ago. Welcome to the WRC club
SpadeBF
I think i wet myself, another reason for motivation.
Things like this will make me want to have a 6gen for the rest of my life

Always nice to meet someone who knows more than you about your own car lol
schmooot
is he saying mine isn't a wrc? I'm confused.

I can understand how someone could easily put on the hood vent and riser blocks to make it look like one but what would be the purpose of putting in a non-functional anti-lag pot and the different heat shield under the hood?
tomazws
Very nice find! I'm jealous!

"Always nice to meet someone who knows more than you about your own car lol"

Well I did know what suspension he had and he did not. I also inspected this car and drove it a few times.

"you talked to who? and what car are you talking about?"

I talked to Izzat, if you bought the one with 168XXXkms right? If so then I am referring to your car.

I was in the market for a ST205 and I looked at this car for a couple of weeks drove it a few times great car just was not for me. I never saw anything that said that it was a WRC. They brought in a red one and bought it. After reading this post I talked to them and asked them if it was a WRC and they told me "no". either the did not know it was WRC or it is not. If they did not know it was a WRC then you got a smokin deal, most I see go for around 10-13k Isn't there a way to know from the Vin#? And by the way in no way am I putting your car down, it is a Mint Celica, the ks were a little high for me and I wanted a red one.

ok fair enough tongue.gif ....I thought his name was izzap......I've been calling him Izzap since the beginning Ha. From the limited research I've done (and someone please correct me if I'm wrong) it doesn't say wrc anywhere on it, the wrc has the different heat shield, the anti-lag components, the water sprayer setup, and the hood spoiler and riser blocks, now I'm not saying that someone couldn't easily have added the riser blocks and hood spoiler but the other components all appear to be in place. Like I say I haven't looked underneath much since I got it but I have been cleaning the engine bay and trying to get a feel for what is going on in there for the last couple weeks (I have to do something cuz I certainly can't drive it yet)
sunwukongg
i envy you.. kindasad.gif
silverceli09
i envy you. that thing is CLEAN. the engine bay looks practically new. congratulations on your buy =)
delusionz
well it definitely looks like a WRC, what is the frame number? most wrc's are under 2500 (eg ST205-000XXXX) but not always.
schmooot
the salesman was mistaken....it is definitely the wrc, it has the water sprayers on the bumper as well as the anti-lag pot and piping under the manifold

Hood spoiler was part of the face lift, even my 1.8i SR limited edition has it wink.gif
Water sprayers on front bumper to wash headlights also present on mine
