-INTRO-
I have owned3 Celicas prior to Candy but she is my First GT-Four. I never felt the passion for a car as i did for this one. I met her in 2010 and purchased her from a guy who lived 3 hours off. I had no idea he mistreated her so badly. After having her inspected she was in such bad shape that i had to think should i scrap her a hope for a new Celica or give this amazing car the life it deserves? Obviously i kept her i started fixing her up. sure I am no mechanic but what I was able to do I did it with pride.

Page color layout
Red: repairs and prices
Orange: I need people's input
purple: titles
Green: important

2010 REPAIRS:
-tie rods
-front suspension (stock for the moment waiting to have enough money for coil overs)
-4 new mid quality tires (temporary)
-inter cooler gaskets
Total cost for the 2010 repaires:800$

2011 REPAIRS:
- 4 brand new Toyo Proxes T1R tires
-full exhaust en emptying out the cat
-replacing the broken rear tie rods/link kit with half inch thick ones instead of quarter inch
-brand new stage 3 clutch
-remachining the fly wheel
-leaking o-rings
-new distributer (in french its distributeur hopefully its that in english haha)
-caproater
-coilpack
-opening up the transmission replacing the bearings forks re mahcining one of the shafts and a full cleansing and inspection the the rest
-both crank gaskets
-rebuilt tranny
-rebuilt dif
Total cost for the 2011 repaires:7645$


2012 REPAIRS:
-Need to get a new coil over suspension <--I have no idea whats the best for a GT-Four
-Need to open engine clean it fix it
-Need to replace gaskets for headers
-Need rebuilt or new turbo <--Which would be the best choice

Value of Candy to my eyes:PRICELESS



FUTURE GOAL:
Idecided to keep the 3SGTE and build it up from there! Now I just need help to find out who built what.
-I am specifically going for 300-350awhp. Can anyone point me out who did this already and where i could find some info to get started?
-Big Breaking system with sway bars
-restoring the inside
-New 17" mags
-Redo paint job and stickers
-New soundsystem



MORE PICTURES AFTER WINTER.Unless i miss candy too much and go see her in the storage.

Welcome!

I only know of one V6 Alltrac and that was in England. I believe as of last year, it was sold to a Frenchman. There was a lot of modification done to the transaxle case (grinding and cutting the housing) to get them to mate. I'd recommend rebuilding the 3SGTE up nice as you will find a lot of experience in doing so on here.

Hmm. o guess i'll stick to the 3sgte. I'm very curious to know how powerful this 4cyl can get

3sgte can take you as far as you would ever want. (or swapping to a 5s block as pointed out) Lots o' money tho.

If you have any specific questions this forum is a good place to ask.

You're doing things right though. Start with the maintenance, fix all the issues before you start adding power. Also suspension is a smart place to start.
