A very cool, extensive project! Why did you decide to replace the white body with the black body?

Awesome project.

That flywheel was toast ! Got a pic of the disk ?

Hey guys.

Yes most definitely the Clutchmasters FX400 is something I wanted to talk about my experience with it.

Conclusion: Will never buy another one, gone back to Exedy

From day one (some time in 2011 when my original engine in white car blew head gasket) the Clutchmasters FX400 was impossible to disengage, it only had about 1/2 or 3/4 disengagement at full travel. the thrust bearing ended up blowing to a million pieces from having to overstroke it, and later inspection found there was nothing at all wrong with the travel like we thought, the FX400 kit is sprung too heavily for the strength of its construction, the fingers bent inwards instead of acting on the springs and release mechanisms.

To summarise the shortfalls of the White car, and things being addressed in the new car

- Body getting old has taken a beating, tremendous learning tool for me since age 24 now 31, first turbo car

- Bushes all completely shot

- Power maxed at 200kw (wheels) due to 100% duty cycle of injectors & stock regulator.

- Wiring completely toast everywhere

- Cooling system to be improved as heat as been a past killer

- Bad choice of clutch kit ruined gearbox syncros so a new one is to be built with new bearings and syncros.

- So much unused Toyota crap left in the car, things that I needed to fix but never got round to doing. The new Celica is to be from the ground up everything I want and nothing I don't based on the rough experience I've had, no temporary fixes, etc.




Here is the last lot of pictures to bring us up to date

Now this is a build! thumbsup.gif

Any particular reason you went with the gt2860 turbo? I am looking into upgrading mine and have been contemplating the gt3076 or gtx3071..

Ahh yes, the choice was made many years ago, it was a poor choice for the 3rd gen 3SGTE but it was the closest matching aftermarket turbo to the stock CT20B which was hard to source at the time. It's what I've had for years and hasn't blown so I will run with it for now and max it out completely.

I would recommend any of those GT30 or GTX30 series turbos as a good allround match to the ST205 engine.

Very nice build ! Booost!!!!
Rusty
Sweet thread mate. Good to see you sharing your build on here too.

Updated flywheel too?
delusionz
Shot Rusty, Yeah got the stock flywheel from Black car and Exedy kit. Maybe I should get a lightweight?

sounds just like my experience with them, especially the disengagement and bearing issues. Clutch masters is garbage
