:) well the guy that i told you might sell me 1 of his ECU's we finally met up last night...We just met him through this guy Alex (Civic that we raced and only met 2 days ago) Welllll he said he hada friend with a Same exact celica as ours with a CS hood and a 3s under the hood....(We were kinda skeptical and didnt really believe him due to the fact there are barley any 5th gens around here with 3s's under the hood id say about 4 ...Me,Brother,Whyte kid,nd Yevgeniy (guy we met last night).........

Chilled with 2 of his buddies in their volvo just talkin about cars and where they were from... They just came from Russia about 5 years ago and they ALL know so much about german cars and Celicas....

Here are some pictures of the guys celica next to mine.. His shite was CLEAN, Stripped enterior entirely only thing left was 2 Recaro seats....ECU was bolted by passangers legs...Whole middle piece was gone stripped no door panels or carpet or anything in the rear.....Liked one of his custom jobs that iam going to be doing which was VERY VERY simple all it does is spray water on the TMIC when you need to in a race or something to cool it down

Why not do water inj instead?
Or spray rubbing alcohol [70%] Cools faster than water.

Hmmm that is a good idea Rubbing Alcohol 3:4 water havnt seen anyone else really do this why?

He said whole thing cost about 12$ to make so why arnt other 3sgte swappers using this method if it helps?

Don't ask me....
I'm waiting to install the ST205 stuff, then the ic rad gets a sprayer... :D

haha, its the russian guys. they sometimes show up to the scoobie meets in the area. that car has a sweeeet paint job. they did it themselves. but i still don't understand why they are using the cs hood with an air-to-air top mount. that things gotta heatsoak like mad. but i heard from a friend that they are gonna get a fmic soon. sooo, we'll see...

10-17-2005, 04:45 AM
yeah, that's not too brilliant either....

10-17-2005, 04:56 AM
They already orderd the CS bumper and FMIC is on its way....

They are also going for the WRC look and installing that kind of hood scoop on their car along with a roll cage. With mud flaps also

they better not rally that thing.. the fmic will get hit with a rock and pop :P

10-17-2005, 11:55 AM
Yeah, Coldiron runs a CS hood with a topmount last I heard, I remember him having to pop his hood after each run at the AutoX to let it cool down...

josh should be switching to FMIC or W2A for his new motor

10-17-2005, 02:48 PM
I had a 205 setup w/ a griffen core but traded it for something else, then I got broke and did not have a chance to build a fmic till I blew the engine...

My 205 engine will have a fmic, as it did not come with a wta setup. Got a good deal onm it though. Should be wiring it up tonight too.
