So i got my 90 GT. Fuel line broke, patched it, probably wont hold, whatever. Its got major PS leakage, thats never been addressed, so its killed the right side of the car underneith, its pretty gross, trying to clean up after previous owners suck.

Im trying to turbo a 5s, and drop it into a lovely 5th gen LB, which i have one. Cause i got a lot of parts to turbo one already.

So...couple choices i need help on.

Save money for a second car to drive daily, so i can do work on the celica, replacing hard fuel line(couldnt do it cause front sway bar bolts were so coroded couldnt get a socket on them), cleaning up PS mess, replacing needed things. would be a real project, which im cool with.

Or

Save up for another Celica in better condition. And work on that instead, and not have it have so much down time.

help me out

buy a 3rd gen, swap it to a 1uzfe


fix up the things that already fucked on the 5th gen use it as a daily, or sell and upgrade to a 6th gen, or toyota truck or subaru

Word. yeah im thinking of getting a 6th gen. seem to be harder to come by.

Would really like a 4th gen coupe if i could find one.

Actually I think the 4th Gen Coupes have nice lines. I like the body of the 4th Gen coupe

Not to mention if I get a GT I can stick with the engine ive been working on, which is a turbo'd 5sfe, which i have a lot of parts for already. Not to mention all the research ive been doing, and work on my own NA 5s.

So im saving right now for a 4th Gen Coupe to have as my turbo project. Keeping the GT as a DD for now. Even though people try to race me at every light due to the gauges.

How much will a decent condition 4th gen coupe run me? and are they easy to come by?

I wish. So far though. Theres a REALLY clean one out here, but its an ST, $1750. 5spd. All stock which is what i want, dont want anyone elses project. Right now I dont have any money saved, come wednesday i should have a couple hundred packed down for it though.

Ill find one though, ive been assured they are easy to come by. I see A LOT at the wrecking yard. So ill get one, and make it a monster.

Cav you should get one to. Either that or a Caddi CTS :)
