Pictures from this year , the last ones I have .

I had to change the wastegate for a smaller one , I did also all the coolant line with aluminum hard line with wiggins clamp and installed the polished panel over the radiator. All the coolant lines and bypass are custom and without thermostat. (controlled by the electric water pump )

Notice ; I had also to made a shield for the clutch slave just behind the turbo and I use the water port on the tial wastegate .

Nahh ..... I can't photoshop ... just hard work and too much money here ! But I take it as positive comment tongue.gif


I received also at the end of summer my race head , maybe more street one as we near don't touch the intake side for the moment , and the camshaft duration / lift not too high for daily use . I got the exhaust ported the spring valves changed, done the conversion for underbucket lifter, stainless steel os valves with 3 angle job and the head chambers and valves faces received also a gold ceramic coating biggrin.gif

Not perfect but better .



Finally doing the wiring/plate for the coil on plug ... still need to fab the catch tank supports/ lines



Still soo much to do ....

Red123

I love the new look of that stance.
What spacers are them and how much mm?
frotou
Spacers come from ; novustech.ca . They are very good quality !!!!!

I have now 20mm front and 10mm rear but I will add 10mm all around with more camber .

The intake itself is a piece of art ; very well made and complex to build . I was very lucky to find it .

Ryan you mean pictures from the back of the intake ?
sr666
Sorry no I meant the back of the car :-)

Spectacular build, subscribed!

A few questions:
The 7A-GTE engine, I take it, is a 7A-FE (standard 1.8lt ST engine) with a 4AGE head (initnally a 20V blacktop, then a 16V) and a turbocharger. Right?

14in brake rotors are… 355.6mm! My oh my… what diameter are your wheel rims?

Regarding the longer studs and spacers for the wheels, what size are your tires? I'd like to get a feeling of how far out they go with the spacers.

Thanks,
M.

7A = block GE= head (16v or 20V) T=turbo

I have 19 inch wheels , so much space to fill on celica . I have 19x8 front 19x9 rear . I will try 20mm rear spacer and 30mm front with more camber. I will need to change wheels if I want to get more .

I just finish the test fit the brakes I'll post some pictures .

I want in in whatever your dealing! thumbsup.gif

Custom brackets fits just fine with caliper/rotors combo



Test fit is a succes !








I can't wait to hit them HARD !

I want details! Where/what you bought, and how they perform.

Here we go ;

Rotors are wilwood srp 14''x1.10'' , got them on ebay for 550 $. At the time to pay seller ask me if I want the wilwood hats for 125 $ more . They were made for corvette so I got them redrilled to 5x100.

After that I decided to match the rotors with wilwood 6 pistons calipers . Choice are radial or lug mount . Bought them on ebay also , 850$ with polymatrix pads type E compound . I prefer and buy lug mount caliper because it's easier to make the bracket .

Finally I contact a brake company specialized in custom brake with all my specs to get the bracket made . They already have the celica hub mounting/offset mesurement , I just tell them the specs of the calipers and rotors/hats .I got also the brakes lines and all hardware (spacers , bolts , washers) total 350$ .

The only issue I have are the pads fitment over the rotors. Wilwood list the calipers I have to go over 14'' rotors but they don't . So I need to re-profiled the pads .250'' lower to get them flush to the dics.

The total is 1875$ for the package. Ksport kits are approx. the same but I decided to go with custom parts + wilwood for cheap replacement parts in futur .


Unfortunately , I won't try the brakes before next year ; winter is already with us here ; 5 degree F today ....

I recently buy 2 x E58 LSD tranny from japan levin GTZ (4agze) . I'm in the process to check the fitment issues.

Just bolted with the block



Front tranny mount is not a long shot .





Rear mount will be custom made .



Just clearing the steering rack



The 2ND tranny with spare 7afe block

Thats the 6speed?

E58 are 5 speed lsd transmission.

A lot of new things , no time to update so I will make a little effort .

I'm in the process of redone the interior





I add the water injection and 4 channel egt gauges at the bottom of the center console



Then I modify the cluster trim to adapt a complete stack dash





A little carbon fiber touch



A little glue over the plastic adaptor



I think I just need the stack dash now .
