hey guys ...... just picked up a non running 96 celica gt for 1000 bucks about 6 months ago with a half fast turbo kit . i wish i had pics ........... it had pvc plastic pipe as intercooler pipe and a 14mm socket welded in the oil pan for the oil drain and also had that **** plastic nylon tube you get for a boost gauge he had it as a oil feed to the turbo ...the hole kit he made cost him 400 bucks what a joke //////// going to give you guys the low down on the new project car !!!!!!




what she looked like when i first got her ....... looks good in the pic butt it is ruff




as i whas pulling the first piston out it fell into 5 peaces and the compression rings where broke in half ... thank god the block is fine laugh.gif



got new nipon 87.00 mm pistons







i got a rebuilt head for 350 bucks





as the first start i had some miner leaks like the injector o ring was twisted but it was an easy fix.

so i got 10.000 miles on the fresh engine with and still running like a champ ....... now HERE COMES THE PAINT ......dent ,,,,dent dent,,,





i welded up the front side lights and cut out new side light holes in the back of the fender for the sleeker look .. got them out of 2003 land rover fenders witch are very nice because they have a orange smoked color






there whas a ugly brace in the middle of the wing i had to get rid of rolleyes.gif













all taped and all primed ready to paint ..... i used a ford black .. the paint code is UA ...transtar product and allso clear








right after the over spray cleared out i had to take a pic ....... or two biggrin.gif









a day after the wet sand and buffed




BOOST TIME

ebey stainless log for 150 buck and 38mm turbonetics wastegate








polished up the air housing and paint the exhaust side and got the down pipe off of ebay .............. if you have any questions about this i can send any one links /////// turbo is a t3 with 63 exhaust wheel and 50 air




the new tial bov its like Christmas when i get home and this **** is sitting on the steps lol tongue.gif



and this is where i am at right now i took them today












im thinking of getting this front bumper .....NO OR YES ...




and the rota torque ....... bad ass






HectortheRican
Good work so far!
NGHTKD
can't wait to see all the progress with this!
TRD11
hey thanks
smkr3w
dont mean to sound like an idiot (though i prolly will), but i was under the impression to turbo a 5s you needed a 3s head/manifold, but obviously you made it work with a 5s head.. tbh im confused lol
TRD11
well i heard that the 3s head will give you more over all hp butt it is fine to boost 5sfe wink.gif wink.gif wink.gif wink.gif
SwissFerdi
^ Definitely is.

I like this build a lot, very clean but seems to be done right. Also, nice "Home Depot" front lip.
whatthe
Mad as sleeper, cool lip too.
lagos
very impressive work! Now just get some nice wheels for it and you'll be all set!
CoreyST
I really like this celica, and the lip doesn't look all that bad for what it is. Great job on the car. How does it run?
TRD11
thanks guys ,,,,, it runs like **** now but im going to get a mr2 map because the stock 5sfe map only reads 5 psi then falls on its face ,,, but im going to get rid of the 12.1 fmu and get a safcII ... and get some 460cc rx7 injectors then i can tune her smile.gif ,,,,,,,,, i need some suggestions on wheels HELP ????????
NGHTKD
rota torque with a tough offset or black XXR BBS LM replicas

any updates?
Supersprynt
I wouldn't get the bumper.
mak5603
You've brought that car a long way, nice work. Can't wait to see what else you do with it!
KALLusion
good choice of rims, they will go good with the front bumper. I have not seen that bumper before, its clean looking.
NGHTKD
as you've probably heard with that bumper, looks great, no many people have it but by ALL COUNTS its an absolute pig to fit / poor fitment
Needles
hey that engine looks NICE !!! i love the color and how its end up , this one is of the most beautiful engine i ever seen mad.gif (im jalous lol )
whatthe
So sexy. Please make a video.
TRD11
lol wink.gif yea its hard to keep clean for a daily ....... my next project is to relocate the alternator down were my ac compressor was so that i put an air filter on ..... i only have a metal screen on it now wink.gif
Ted95

If your looking for 300whp just do a basic bottom end rebuild or buy a gen2-3 3SGTE + boltons. But considering you have all turbo parts, I'd recommend forged 5SFTE.

Depends if you want to stay with 5SFTE or go 3SGTE, I chose 5SFTE. How much power are you looking at making?

I like the the lip you have on but the bumper you are considering looks awesome, it all depends like they say that the fitment is crazy bad. For the wheels I really like the oem you have, always liked five star wheels. Also like the pontiac grand am GT emblem you put in the back of the car.
BonzaiCelica
nice pick up on the dash and steering wheel. Ya I now what you mean, pain in the ass to remove the dash. good job!

My first bike was a GT Performer, first car Grand am GT and I hope soon I'll be a proud owner of a GT 6gc. But still havent found one for a good price and in good condition here in Florida.

It's fine. This thread has his numbers, plus a couple links on page three for oil pressure.

Yea just like my thread shows that's normal
I was worried to but if your tapped into the same place as me
its a return line so the psi reads lower than you would think
atleast that was my understanding from what I read in the links
