View Full Version : Sifu's Project "Money Pit" *should be changed to will~never~finish~thread*

05-27-2010, 06:39 AM
Here's my 1990 Celica Alltrac. It's probably been down since 2002, maybe earlier who knows (I've lost track of time). This baby has been garaged kept since then and never really worked on (I've been amassing the largest Alltrac parts bin though). I sorta' dislike working on her because she requires money all the damned time. At this point it's just finishing her just to finish the project. So I broke the number one rule and purchased another project car (er... 2 actually but we'll leave those out).

*Wideband O2 Port and Plug

- CS bumper for FMIC
- Whiteline bushings for zero whiteline parts
- Camber adjustment tools
- Front clear corner lights
- 1 radical blue neon painted Stock Steering wheel (i didn't do this btw).

Things to get (in order of importance)!!!
- Standalone EMS (still looking at options, torn between AEM, Motec, Hydra)
- Full exhaust system
- Volk Rims
- High Grip Tires
- Optima Battery
- Gauges or a STACK unit
- Momo Steering wheel (or TOMS) to get rid of that horrid neon wheel

Goal: 550hp+
Status: Sitting on the jack stands and STILL awaiting the Powerball Jackpot.

She's almost done. SERIOUSLY guys she almost is. I just want to get it right and since money is very tight with this awesome economy I'd rather get her done without going into debt than splurging on her and then ending up selling her.

Patience my precious... Patience... :nopity:

Here are some photos...
I'll post up newer photos later. Sadly I still have parts boxed up but I assure you all it'll definately be worth the wait...

My original one was sent to KO Racing where they re-shimmed the turbine. It's a T3/T4 hybrid dual BB .63 trim. My goals were around 500hp but this turbo probably would be stretching it so I purchased Trevor's gt35r kit (the larger one of course). It'll be no problem now; just a matter of money...

So... any update yet Yoh!? When do I finally get to see this thing!? I've been putting waaay too many miles on my trac lately. If I had your setup in mine, I could only imagine the additional miles I'd already have.

If you're not going to finish, sell me the ChrisK motor and 35R for the price you picked it up lolz!

<--- Jealous. But you knew that already. I can't wait to see the video of the first startup on this beast. Keep hoarding parts... :)
