I wish someone could get a 22R into a FWD Celica.

That would be sick

Cali kills everything.

Whyd it die? Cause you used a USDM ECU on it?

if i ever won a large sum of money one of the things on my "to do if im rich" things is have a rwd 5th gen coupe.

although id probally have a 1uz in it

i must say the usdm ecu lacked a knock sensor... all bad rite? nah i tuned by the light so i could say it was sparked properly.... uh hey could a bad flywheel cause a bearing to get spun on the 3s series block? i think it was off balance bad! like visibly! bolt failure or my fault! i was in a rush... shoot!
ah well live n learn.

next up to bat is my 3sfe ge-head..... um lets hope itll last a month or more! LOL!!!@!

If the flywheel, clutch and assembly is too out of balance i would imagine it would only be time if you rev high or driver regularly in the higher RPM's.

Good luck with the frankenstein, If you want to do it right, spend the time to have it all balanced and machined to spec. Its never fun doing the same job more than once.

I wanna throw the comp through the window.

stupid is as stupiiiiid does lol!

on a further note the usdm comp killed it... it couldn't lean or enrich-en the fuel!
so it ran too rich causing high-compression.... - equals dead bearings!
dont jump cuz your bound to fall!
