The primer passenger door was broken into. Waiting for the CS bumper so i can get them painted together. The little orange things in the console are GTFOUR side markers. Soon to be installed.

Don't worry, it never rains up here.

Your car looks awesome though. The intake, while the ingenuity and idea is in the right place, IS waiting for trouble.

It's like having unprotected sex with someone you know has an STD. You stand a good chance of screwing something up.



But if you like hydrolock....carry on.


Awesome car though, just ditch the intake for a factory one with a K&N filter.

Firstly you get props for the fact it's a coupe. I also have a coupe.
Secondly you get props for the 92 front bumper. I really like that bumper....but I hear you are going CS. Get some pics up when you do. I am trtying to decide if I want to go the same way and if it looks good without the CS hood.

Everyone seems pretty concerned about the air filter. I just bought a civic CAI which I am about to fit and will probably try and run it a little less low than that or stick it in the fender well. But seeing as I live in Southern California....rain isn't much of a problem!

Anyway your car looks very nice and black has rapidly become my second favorite colour for a celica. The best is still clearly.....White.

This is a bit off topic but a lot of people I have spoken to have said that the K&N filter is the most over rated piece of equipment ever, especially for an engine of the limited power of the 5SFE. In fact my friend and mechanic told me that I would be wasting my money and it wouldn't make the blind bit of difference. Thoughts?

Dropping in a K&N (or the TRD version for that matter) is actually a small improvement. While it won't give you 20MPG extra or 20HP, it's a little throttle response and can potentially increase gas mileage a little. As far as wasting money, nah, I wouldn't say so, unless you end up not driving the car more than 30k miles total or so. All it has to do to be cost effective if it had NO other benefit at all would be to not have to buy new paper ones 3 or 4 times.

The filter dosent hang as low as you would think. It is above the frame but gets straight air through the bumper, since i took the skid plate off. The pic dosent really do it justice on the positioning.

After I bought the Lexus I decided not to cheap out on stuff.

The K&N filter on a 2JZ is well worth the money. I noticed slight power increase and a little bit better mileage. Mainly, I purchased it for the reusability factor. I tend to drive a lot and go through assorted conditions. I clean the K&N twice a year and it still looks like a new filter.


my OEM intake design doesn't have a large box to suck air in, just a hose with a vent at the end to prevent large debris from comng in.


Its worth the money. Plus, it looks very clean.

Clean ride, how did you mount your plate like that? I have a 92-93 bumper and zip ties aren't doing it for me anymore.

I used a License plate mouting kit.

Your local Autozone or Shucks should have it.

Clean ride. Not personally a fan of neon and such, but you've done a nice job :)
I would also recommend at least installing one of those filters that they offer to prevent the water getting into your motor. Sorry but I have no clue what they're called as I've never used one.

Im avoiding driving in the rain until I can get one. Witch is hard considering the Northwest weather.
