well, im hoping i can get my celica on the road by the time all of you attend the dragon, cause my brother wont leave me alone about it. Ill be pulling up in my super slow 6th gen ST. im not sure how much of a celica guy i am yet, this car may decide that for me, hopefully.
im 19, i work at autozone, this is a no flex zone, so dont comment flexing on me with your boosted whips. cause ill whip that ass. Any cool build ideas i should do or anything like that is encouraged i have a lot to learn 'bout this business.

Only one allowed to flex here is you, ay?

For an ST, look at a 4age or 4agte swap to make some more power on a relatively easy swap. I'm guessing this will be a daily driver, so we won't get into suspension too much, but folks seem to like the Megan coilover setups if you decide to go that route. Getting around corners faster is always a good time.

Don't put stickers on your car.

Don't worry about engine swaps, or suspension or silly things yet. Get it running. Get it running right. Fix any problems that come up.

The 7AFE is fine for getting you around. It isn't a powerhouse, it won't ever win races. It will get good gas mileage, be reliable and easy to work on.

Once you have it sorted, then you will know what it does, and what it doesn't, then what you want it to do. If you come to the Dragon with Eric, then you will see a bunch of Celicas and how they are modified, then you can decide what floats your boat and ask the owner what they did/didn't do and why.

That is of course if anyone brings a Celica.

Pffft... no one brings a Celica to a Celicatech meat.

Hello and welcome, if your 6th Gen is a hatchback I would suggest the rear strut bar for your first upgrade and a set of clear projector headlights for your second upgrade. These by far are the best bang for your buck upgrades.

I don't. I'm just a little guy.

But why would you modify your car and put all those silly shiny bits on it when it has that big dent in the side of it, that is stupid...
