I think that it...and the story with all the pics.....

In the begining we had bog....stock...hairdresser celica....
Then that shity side decal come off...lol
The engine bay before my hand and my mechanics' dirty hands touched it!
This is the power graph of her particly stock..read the hand writing in picy for the mods...if u can read my crap...lol
Then i did some stuff to the inside of the car and fitted the ICE!
Then a whole heap of time past where i blow a gear box up...and a heaps of other shit...then my number 1 big end went and i can hear the conrod taping and the piston taping.....so i go and get a half cut!!!....
This was my office for a couple of nights while it was doing the conversion... mainly the wiring with them celica wiring books!
The result of my mechanics and my own tops efforts...the engine bay as is!
The power graph of the 3s-gte at the wheels on the same dyno as the one before...at this stage the factor boost controler was still in with a home made bleed valve...u can see the boost go right to the set 12psi then fall down cause of shity exhaust and t-vsv (factory boost controler).
The brake upgrade and them painted..also rear ones painted too!
The GT-2 as is now...inside and out!





So there u guys go...the best thread i've ever done with the gt-2 in detail for the first time!!!!! i hope u guys and girls like!
