And yes I know, Linkin Park is ghey. I just needed some relief from Led Zep and AC/DC

So the 4AFE runs out of juice past 80, eh? Not too bad until then though.

Yeah, disappointing :( But I've gotten it up to around ~115 on the way to school before, right before I noticed I was blowing blue smoke all over the road behind me!

I think it's from my oil leak.. dripping on the hot exhaust pipe. That could have turned nasty fast. Reminder to self: fix the damn oil pan leak.

I'll download it. Any mods done to your car?

Just rebuilt it- couple new valves that were shot, the head was cleaned up
.030 over pistons
"short ram" intake
Megan Racing 4-2-1 Header
2.25" header-back exhaust
Dual-tip muffler

Every seal, gasket, and belt is new, as well as the water pump, oil pump, crankshaft, p.s. pressure and return hoses, and I rebuilt the P.S. pump. Those aren't mods though.

Other mods include stereo system, new paint job, clear corners, clear bumper lights, suspension (swaybar, springs, struts, mounts, etc), wheels.

I've put around $6k or so into this car, and bought it for $2k. Overall she's been pretty nice to me :)

Couldn't finish the video, I fell asleep after 60 j/k :hehe: That is actually pretty good for an auto ST. A while back I got around 10 seconds with my GT 5spd with a granny launch and a dirty distributor cap.

mad props on how clean ur car is

i think it's pretty quick especially for an auto. for the money you put into that engine you could have swapped in a 3sge and had a lot more power.

also the auto kills acceleration although it's still quick...

my 5sfe is faster :) mad props anyway i like the first vid the best we need more ppl to post accel vids :)! maybe some 3sgte's too yeet yeah my car looses wind after 80 too bah

:lolhittin ha thats funny. Cool vids mike. My g/f just got me a digi cam so If i get bored enough and find a empty parking lot, I'll make some videos of me in the corolla and the GT once the swap is done.

Yeah that's safe... drive 80 with one hand on the wheel and one hand holding a camera while in a residential area and minivans all around. *sigh* I should have taken vids of how I drove before I put the body kit on my car. Now I'm too afraid of scratchin that shit up. I need another celi... ASAP.

1. I'm not Mina, don't talk to me like I am :hehe:

2. I can control the car just fine with one hand. It IS an auto.

3. It wasn't residential-- the parts where I was going 80 were on major highways.

4. I don't drive like that usually. The point of the vids were to show how the ST accelerates and when it runs out of juice, since many people wanted to know.

not bad for an auto ST, and your car is beautiful of course :)
