andy
08-24-2007, 03:23 AM

that would be my 7th gen...i bought it from ryan a couple weeks ago.

that ic would go nice on a 4agze andy. just paint the whole car black.

celicaGT90_05
08-24-2007, 03:30 AM
no black, I'm doin black lol and I rightfully can since my car is black! besides, I think that maroon with the RC bumper will look pretty cool

andy
08-24-2007, 03:31 AM
it does, im keeping it maroon.

Cavanagh
08-24-2007, 03:56 AM
Good stuff! Maroon FTW! Is that hood new?

Borinal
08-24-2007, 04:11 AM
I love the hood, but I'm ov the opinion I don't really like it without TMIC, but the FMIC looks so sexy and mean too... it just, is a big hole tho, needs the IC up there.

burnyd
08-24-2007, 04:42 AM
did you guys race yet? And andy how bad did you lose lol?



but anyway looks great.. I hope your painting the rest of the car black!

donteatbugs
08-24-2007, 05:14 AM
andy is a pussy and like the maroon. who was he gonna race? hes faster than me and ryans 7th gen. i doubt he would beat ryans alltrac though.

andy
08-24-2007, 05:20 AM
yeah, the hood is new. and i can beat ryans alltrac right now. so can a huffy. Borinal the bulge vent is sitting above the turbo. I think its there to let all the hot air out. damn it looks good though.

vip09
08-24-2007, 05:31 AM
It's a vent to let hot air out, not a scoop to let cold air in.

Nice car. It looks clean and much more aggressive.


Nobody around here owns coupes?
The RC bumper on a coupe is a rare thing around here I guess.

If I had a coupe, I would sell it and buy a hatch. :D

The Celica coupe just doesn't look right to me.

I live REALLY close to Alabama. I am in Northwest Georgia, and I have a ST with a RC bumper :D

The more I see the RC Hood, the more I like it. But, I think I will stick to my AT hood/RC bumper combo. It's lookin good though, Andy.

I like the coupe more than the narrowbody hatch.

Looks good.

turbo4ag
08-24-2007, 05:54 PM
He's probably painting the whole car since I saw a primered rear passenger side quarter panel.

Im not a fan of the maroon though. But its his car. Its up to him.

andy
08-24-2007, 06:48 PM

celicaGT90_05
08-24-2007, 07:09 PM

andy
08-24-2007, 07:15 PM
hahha, yeah i know. but it gotta do it sometime. the car will look like a rice box for awhile with primer all over it.

08-24-2007, 07:33 PM
just so I'm up to speed since I'm fairly new to the celica world, what is fmic and tmic?

andy
08-24-2007, 07:35 PM

celicaGT90_05
08-24-2007, 07:39 PM
oh ok, hyphanations dont stick well with me lol

The engine bay temps are way too high in our cars for the TMIC to be more efficient at cooling the charge temps than a FMIC. If you used the TMIC after the FMIC, it would just heat the air back up. If you used it before the FMIC, it wouldn't really do much but act as a restriction.

The car looks sick. I think you should repaint the whole thing jet black, but if you're sticking with maroon more props to you. I had a bitch of a time getting my bumper off. So many bolts =(. Good luck running your set up. How much did the cs bumper run you?

On the subject of coupes: I used to love my red narrow body GT coupe. It looked sexy to me. After attaining my new 90 GT-S hatchback. I have to say I think the celica looks so much better in the widebody hatch. Just does the body more justice. Plus it gives you the option of running larger wheels or spacers for a wider stance. Just my opinion though...

Yeah I know, it just sucks. It looks so sexy with it. I think it looks odd with just a window to the motor, it still looks aggressive as fuck, which is cool, but it isn't the same.

I don't know shit about it because I don't have the TMIC and I don't care with my SW20, but Luni says that A2W is as or more efficient than my SMIC.

What size IC core is that? Looks good! :D

celicaGT90_05
08-24-2007, 11:06 PM
the problem I see with the tmic though is that you wouldnt get good air flow to it at, so it can't be as efficient as a fmic

bloodredgt
08-25-2007, 12:05 AM
^consider air to your radiator that your fmic heats up when it hits the front. With the tmic the scoop of the all-trac hood directs air through it and heat out of the side vents.

celicatrd93
08-25-2007, 12:12 AM
what kinda of rear bumper are you putting andy?

vip09
08-25-2007, 12:50 AM
---->andy its a stock one, the one on it now has been hit like 3 times and has a nice bow in the middle. as for the core, im not sure i got it from ryan, I think its around 2.5 inches though.

yes, but the heat from the fmic wont be enough to effect cooling of the motor but with even the alltrac hood, the incoming air wont be near as much and not as efficient. Also consider the air flowing over your vehicle rides an inch or 2 off the surface of the vehicle

Yeah, in your case an A2W would be good. You could always go trunk mount! :bigthumbu

the gts is the hatch.. and i though they had the wider body....
