View Full Version : 7th gen GT goes down to.... (lulz inside)

This pains me to say, but i wasted a 2000-2005 Celica (Thank god it was just a GT) last night on the way home from dropping off my girl's phone charger to her.

No, i was not in MY celica, i was in the EGT.

My car is a little loud, i have a half rusted out muffler that i haven't gotten around to replacing yet. Besides the drone, i kindof like the sound.

So i was about 2 miles from home, at a stop light, and a red celica pulls up next to me with a fart can, didn't sound too bad. Clean car. Douchebag driving w/ his gf. He revved on me a couple times, i ignored him. We took off from the light, and he just paced me, doing the ricer "back and forth" ahead and behind me.

We stop at the next light, and i hear him say something to his girlfriend about someone having no balls and a pos car or something to that effect. I gave him a quick tap on the loud pedal to let him know i heard. He acknowledged with a smirk on his face.

I see the other light turn yellow, so i start ramping up my RPMs to 3500. Light turns green, and i get a good hook, immediately put almost 2 cars on him, i then floor it, i'm at about 4000rpms at this point, and my tires start to let go. (I'm not joking, i'll explain about this later.) I run it up to 7000rpms, and shift hard.

CHIRP CHIRP CHIRP! I really need to get those mounts and bushings done, wheel hop sucks.

I went until the top of 3rd gear, then shut it down. I was about..... 6-8 cars out on him at that point. I slowed down for my turn, i pointed and laughed, made a "Call Me" motion to his girl. Look on his face was priceless.

Funny thing about this town, nobody knows what an Escort GT is, and my car is debadged anyways. I doubt anyone could tell me what's special about it, besides if one of you saw it in person.

As for the spinning through first gear.... I'm becoming less and less convinced that my car is stock. I don't SEE anything done to it, but being that i see all over this site people running 17.5s in their EGTs, people advising that an EGT should be running about a 17....

This is a mid high 15s car with good tires and a good hook. It's MILES faster in a straight line than my Celica, and i banged out a 15.9 on my last celica. This one isn't much slower. I don't SEE anything that points to it not being stock, but everyone who has rode in it is flabbergasted. My roomate has a 2003 Civic Si, and he refuses to have a friendly race.

Any ideas?

Cams and headers and nawz'z.

I dont know if it is the same as my mx-3 was, but for that car, I basically went to the junkyard, found a prtoge, and raped it. I got the injectors, ecu, FPR, MAF, TB, and I had a CAI and straight pipe. My mx-3 was at 88hp stock. When I was done, it was between 110-120hp.

Thats one awesome thing about mazda engines. You can go to a junkyard and grab parts off of another mazda, and get bolt on powah! It looks stock, but isnt.

I dont know if thats what is up with it, but it could very well be.

Thing is is that it's already a BP05. The junkyard bolt ons are limited to RX7 VAF and running two exhaust cams. Timing advance maybe. I haven't had a timing light on it yet.

Didn't the MX3 have the 1.6 litre DOHC mazda motor? That thing isn't 88hp stock.

I'm raping a protege and MX3 next weekend for the interior of this thing.

Upon further review on the Escort forums, it seems that high 16s, low 17s are the norm, but there is a documented case of a 15.53 @ 89mph by one of the mods. He had a couple very minor bolt ons, pretty much just intake, timing advance, and a/c delete. Sounds a bit closer now.

I'll have to run it once i get the new bushings, inserts, and tie rods on there. Smoking like a chimney and all. (Horribly bad valve seals lulz.)

Nope, it had the B6 sohc 1.6L.

I think you can get the rx-7 MAF and possibly injectors from a 626 or something like that.

Search around the forums for bolt ons from other cars. I am sure there are things you can do.

Take it to the track and see what it runs! Then you will know if anything is done to it.

^Will probably do that by the end of the month. Needs shifter bushings, engine mount inserts, tie rods, and shifter seal done first. I think all of that ran me about.... $50?

I've got it!!!!

Ben is the ultimate escort driver!! Maybe you can get it to run a 14.7 if you completely unbolt the exhaust!!

It's a GT. Mazda chassis, mazda drivetrain. Mazda BP05 motor. It's been tons of fun so far. Sucker LOVES to rev.

The 1.9sohc is a hilarious bucket. 87hp ftl!

the 1.8 isn't bad at all and the suspension in the escort is very similar to the celica minus the sway bars. i say build a cup car for the escort special races. IMO they handle better than the focus.

I would almost say it handles better than the Celicas, too... the sway bars aren't that bad on this thing. Aftermarket is cheap, too.

This one is the GF's new DD though. I'm enjoying myself enough that i'm trying to find another one, though.

When I drove your EP, I thought the shifter position was pretty natural for hand placement.

I see the springs settled a bit more. ;)

Hey Matt, can you tell Ben that I really need my pictures please?

Thanks bud.

I got your PM. I saw this thread. I saw the other thread where you spammed two consecutive posts about this in huge letters. I saw the thread before that.

If you can explain to me how to burn a 4.99gb file to a cd, then i'll get it out to you tonite. Otherwise, we're waiting while i research how the hell to break this file up when it's too big for the computer to even open. I'm not just sitting here not dealing with it. I'm doing my best to sort out the aftermath of the spat you and my girlfriend had for you. Mmmmkay? <3

Well then a response would have bee nice, then wouldn't it?

As for you and your girl, I don't see why you would bring that up. I have been purposely very careful to not bring it up Ben.

You have a DVD burner drive on that laptop. Get a dual layer dvd and burn that shit.

Mmmmmmkay?
