I still want to do a few things,other wheels,upholster or change seats,better suspension and brakes...the engine for now i'm only planning on change exhaust headers:thinking:


The 4AGE is awesome.

Its a funny little engine but to say the truth i would prefer to have a 3sge:nopity:
But i like this 4age a lot,i'm not disappointed or something,im really happy with it!!

Yeah,maybe,but I'm not to sure yet,theres a guy here that have a ae92 corolla with a broken 3sge and he wants to buy my 3sge...maybe i sell it and buy some exhaust headers and aftermarket cams to the 4age,and keep everythink legal...its ilegal to tho swaps here...that really sucks:evil:

Thanks zen!
Im selling the 3sge now...I like the engine,but i was a little afraid of having problems with the cops and MOT...its illegal to do swaps here :S
And I want to keep this celica as much as original i can!

Just bought a new pair of kayaba front shocks...just excel G's (oem replacement) but i think they will done the job!

No,at least in Portugal its very rare to see a 4th gen celica with it!

No,but i think you can find that on ebay (uk,german),in europe most of celicas (if not all)have this vents :P

So is this to say that you have indeed seen this option before? I am under the impression that even in Europe this option is super rare; Just like the rear fog light you have. I'd kill a man to get my hands on either one of those options!

Yes I've seen that before,but im not sure if its an imported celica or not...
The rear fog light is very usual in europe,I think all the celica's came with it,since here rear fog lights are mandatory!

I don't think the UK, Belgium, Poland, or Germany got it.

I think the "General Europe" market got some of these rare parts in 1986 and 1987. After that I haven't seen any. So limited markets for a limited time makes for a super rare finding. Like I said, I'd kill a man.....

I don't know,the car was for sale on a web site,but I remember that the seller said it have heated seats!I saw the car on the web when i was planning to buy one,so it was more than a year ago!Probably was imported,we have a few imported toyotas here,from canada,usa,germany etc
In Portugal only few 4th gen celica's were sold,most of them at160 like mine,mine is one of the few 1.6 that was sold with AC,is what people say!

You talking about the 3rd brake light right?Its not OEM,was the previous owner that applied it!
The fog is in the tail light!

Theres not too much of parts around here,this model is very rare around here,only ~550 4th gen celicas were sold so as you can imagine junkyards have nothing to 4th gen celica owners...I try to find stuff on ebay most of the time:mad:

that is a wonderful celica. :) and, despite the 4AGE being not as powerful as the 3SGE, its still a very strong and powerful engine. do you know which generation of 4AGE you have? is it possible/legal to supercharge/turbocharge it?

and like others, that is the first ever AT160 i've ever seen. in fact, i was not aware that option/package existed before this...

keep up the great work! :)

black_celicagti16
12-08-2010, 07:22 PM
Thanks!
My 4age is a big port "redtop" or "black and red top" with tvis,42mm crankshaft and 7rib block!
It is ilegal turbo or supercharge any N/A engine here in Portugal,if I get caught i'll pay a big fine and they will arest my car title until I get it to a inspection completly stock...thats why I'll keep it N/A :S But there are a lot of tuned N/A to Turbo cars here in Portugal,many of them never get caught in many years!

Thanks again :)

Now I have brand new:
KYB excel G with boge lowering springs

Next step is the rear suspension!

Thanks guys!!!

Eric I sold the wheels beucase I want to buy some rally type wheels,OZ roulletes,Sparco cromodora's,Compomotive MO5,Enkei Tarmac WRC or something!But its gona take a while because I dicided to restore all the suspension and engine first!
Suspension is almost done,need back shocks and bushes,engine need some valve adjusment and need to check rod bearings!
In May its time to take the celica to the track and I need the suspension done at least!

Hey guys,track day was last sunday...3 sessions of ~30m each...heres the video of the first session (still uploading the other two)!Too bad the camera position and the sun dont let you guys see the track,I'll try a better position for the camera next time!
Let me resume the first session:
Slightly wet track,15 years old tires (195/60r14),I was with a lot of desire to go fast but the will to not destruct the car was bigger,even so on the 2nd or 3rd lap I braked a little bit later and decided to follow through the escape zone,but the kerbs were so f'kin big (you notice that the camera changes position when I passed through the kerbs).
I was using almost all the time 3rd and 4th gear,I tried to use 2nd gear sometimes but the track was a little bit wet and I couldnt put the power on the ground,so I decided to save the tires and the fuel and keep using 3rd gear,still the car was very slow in some corners!
Best lap as around 1m55s,experienced guys with good tires and cars with the same power can take laps around 1m45s!But I got to admit that I felt bad for the car hiting those kerbs a lot of time and using 2nd gear in some corners so I prefered to keep the car safe!!Maybe next time with better tires I'll try to improve my lap times a little bit,but the most interesting part is that was a lot of fun and I enjoyed a lot driving the celica
At the end of first session the right front tire was in really bad shape :/


http://youtu.be/tZdAUKKOPj0

2nd session video,the understeer session...
Started to use more 2nd gear,the time was better around 1m53s...but soon I decided to use 3rd gear again because front tires were gettin really really bad,lots of understeer even in 3rd gear after 15min!
At 23m37s my first time on the grass with a big FWD drift
At the end of this session I changed the front tires to the rear!

Thanks man!!!These front turn signals are EDM,I think JDM ones are a little bit darker,but Im not sure!!I'll see what I can find but it will be difficult because were sold only 550 4th gen celicas in Portugal,its a pain in the ass to find parts for my car here,but if Ill find something I'll hit you up!!

Hey guys,after 4 years I decided to paint my celica!It was the first time I painted something that big,but I think the final result is pretty ok!

Chenged the wheels too,they're from a Mazda MX3,they are light,read somewhere they were made by Enkei!But definitly need spacers!

Seriously!

Did you have these custom upholstered? If not, can I ask where you got the new fabric from? Our black interior has faded to blue and we're starting to think about our options....

I send them to a guy who works with car seats,even some brands like Mercedes,Toyota etc when a client needs to repair some interior part send to this guy,he works really good!
I only said I want a fabric like the Recaro fabric with red stitches and to repair/change the foam!

I see... I'll have to look into our local upholstry shops then.

I was hoping that these were just replacement covers that were available online.... Thanks though. I love the work so far!

After 5 months without working the celica is alive again! I changed some stuff in the car trying to discover the problem and finally I made it with the help of a friend...the crankshaft sprocket was broken. The car is running good now!
Have new oil, air and fuel filters, spark plugs, map sensor, distributor cap, cleaned intake manifold and gas tank etc
I sold the enkei/mazda mx3 wheels, now Im looking for new ones.

What about that 3sge?

black_celicagti16
07-24-2014, 11:35 PM
I changed my mind and sold the 3sge to a friend...It was missing some material to complete the swap (gearbox,transmission axels and some other small bits) and now being a father I cannot spend to much money on the celica,Im more like keep the car running,with all the maintenance thing in day and enjoy driving it.
And speaking about enjoy driving it this November is track day month so Im 99% sure Im going to the track again :D

Some moments from the track day last November. First session was in wet track, the second the track was drying and the last one was dry.
I enjoyed a lot driving on wet track but I was a lot more confident on dry. Never pulled more than 6.500rpm the car was vibrating a lot because of a bad engine mount...
But I had lots of fun.
