Started this thread for all discussions not involving the Celica, or it can involve the Celica I suppose. This way you can talk about ANYTHING that has happened during your day that you'd like to share with everyone. Had a bad day at work, share. Bought an awesome pet rock, share. Found the best new noms ever, share. Did something to your other car, share. Anything that makes me embarrassed, awkward, and makes me turn red in general, keep to yourself. tongue.gif

I feel as if may days may be a bit too "adult" for this website.

So today i was working on the hemi and installed some new goodies, cleaned out the TB, installed a oil catch can, a SLP underdrive pulley and 180 t-stat. Now time to get a new tune for her.

Its newer 2005 5.7 hemi, stock 340hp as they claim. I have been upgrading little by little, when i first got her i swapped out the cam for comps cam stage 2, along with comp cam pushrods. Then installed 6.1 manifold and 6.1 mid pipes. Used 6.1 liftsprings as well Custom tune from Johan from diablosport. Its still a work in progress, hopefully before winter hits i can get correct dyno #'s. I still have a large shopping list of parts i need/want for her, not counting the other 5 cars i have that need some loving too biggrin.gif

Its 05 Chrylser 300C, pretty nice, been upgrading things here and there. Had to reinstall a different nav unit because the joy sticks on the unit tend to break pretty quickly.

Today I replace the rear speakers in the civic. They work fine however the internet lied to me and I got the wrong size. The ones I replaced were the same size as the ones that came out which led me to believe that they were aftermarket. Now I'm going to have to drill new mounting holes for them.

Cool beans. My mom has a 3.5 Charger, she wants a Hemi Challenger though. She likes them, a little big and floaty for my tastes in a modern car though.

Possibly could make an adapter ring?

It would be nice to have a car with adaptive suspension so you could go from soft and floaty for just driving around to stiff and responsive for more spirited driving. Usually floaty cars tend to make me motion sick though. kindasad.gif

Obviously the Super Non-Celica Edition 2000 MKVIII, where everything goes provided it's not rude! It's also great for everyone to share things about their non-Celica projects, since individual threads would kind of get lost in space. Or maybe you'd like to share a gyro with me, I like gyros.

I think I am going to make an adapter. After looking at it again today there isn't enough metal around it to make it fit well.

Today I give my Brother's 2001 Malibu back since i got mine running. he bought this beater for $500 because it needs a new ignition switch (among other things). You have to sit and Wiggle the key for sometimes 15 min before you get it to unlock and turn. kindasad.gif

So apparently everyone in Miata-ville seems to think they're going to want to total my car... I don't see how, it's like $1,000 in parts at the most... I guess it's body shop labour that's the issue, but I can do it myself if it keeps it from being totaled. I don't want to go through the car shopping ordeal all over again... Tomorrow is seven days, so at the earliest I'll know tomorrow. Tuesday by the latest.
VavAlephVav
as long as the frame isn't tweaked and you just need hood, nose, fender, headlights I'd tell em to give the max they can without totaling it, and they can pss off and like it. smile.gif

Is everything working out with their insurance?
Box
The only damage to the uni-body is where the passenger side of the core support and the tip of the chassis next to the headlight is pushed in like an inch, I could go out and fix it in less than an hour and no one would ever know the difference. I already checked the suspension and all of the chassis seams and it's all good. From behind the wheel you'd never guess it had been in an incident. Honestly it's kind of pissing me off/worrying the Hell out of me that everyone on the Miata forum says they'll total it... I'm willing to do the work myself if they'll give enough to cover parts, paint, and a small enough cushion so I'm not paying out myself in the event I have to pay a premium price for one part or another.

I should hear from them tomorrow, or Tuesday by the latest. This is frustrating. If it wasn't for the fact I was waiting on insurance I'd already have it torn down and prepared for new panels.
njccmd2002
They should shot down the forum. Nothing but incompetents. Clearly they have not seen what 1st gen celica owners have restored. Is they total it buy it back repair and sell it, unless a salvaged title does not bother you...

I really don't see how they could total it, for one I have to agree to it which I won't. Secondly it'd be a lot cheaper to pay me off for parts than to give the retail value of the car. Either way I won't make it easy on them if they try to screw me over.

Apparently insurance is off on the weekends, so have to wait until Monday or Tuesday now...

Well, that's below the lowest percentage even. 50-75% of total value in damages before it's totaled. At this point I just don't even care anymore, the more I think about it the less I want to deal with it. I've only had the top down once and that was on the way home after buying it, then I started to burn and had to put the top up. I'm not a convertible person.

Are you going to sell it and start your search over again?

Today I went back to college and started my second year.... hooray thumbsdown.gif
Box
I don't know, just depends on insurance really. If they total it I'll buy it back and sell it to someone deserving, if they don't total it I'll keep it.

Then it's just back to the 240SX, Mustang, or Supra ordeal all over again.

It'd have to be the first generation liftback. Even with the Miata's meager amount of power I've remembered how much more I like rear wheel drive.

Really it'd be down to Supra or Mustang I suppose... V8's cause wonderful feelings inside of me.
1994Celica
240 with an ls swap?
Box
Meh, rather have the Supra stock or swapped when I think about it. It's what I should've bought the first time around, but I couldn't find a nice one. I hurt too often to be in these cars that ride like ass.

It'd be a MKIII Supra, was my first car and the only one I constantly think about getting back.

MKIII it is, now to wait a year for one to show up.
