    Default My baby and I have big plans.

    1991 Toyota Celica GT (5SFE, Swapped Auto to Manual Transmission)

    This thing has been my baby for going on seven years now. It still isn't perfect but I can't get rid of it.

    Some pictures of when I first got it:



















    Some of the stuff I've fixed so far:
    UPDATED 10/14/2015


    In order:

    + Replaced broken stock airbox
    + Alternator plug wire broke, cut one off at PaP and soldered it on.
    + Replaced alternator
    + Replaced radiator
    + Replaced IACV, all attached sensors (TPS etc.)
    + Replaced EGR solenoid
    + Cleaned EGR valve
    + Welded a hole in muffler
    + Replaced O2 sensors
    + New 2.25" custom catback exhaust
    + Custom painted Scion tC rims + low profile tires
    + Timing belt, water pump, etc
    + New catalytic converter
    + New driveshafts
    + New front struts

    Looks nice, as for the headers, I just picked up a camry header. They bolt right up and it works pretty good for out motor because the motors are the same.

    I would recommend using photobucket to upload pics because they automatically resize the pics so they won't be so large.

    BOLT ON MODS:

    Thanks to Hookecho I now have my 97' Camry header. (March/April 2011)



    It'll be getting put on tomorrow so that my exhaust guy can move my front cat the necessary amount. Sometime in the next few days it'll be taken back off, sand down and painted black with some 2000 degree VHT.

    The camry header from what I have heard, will give you a slight, maybe 5hp increase. It will also extend your powerband just a hair.

    From my memory, I believe it is a 95-99 camry header. Easy to spot, 4-1 style header.

    That bolt hole in the middle is where a engine hook bracket is suppose to go, and its also suppose to hold onto those 4 spark plug wires I believe.

    Well, went outside to start it up today to drive my girlfriend home to find a dead starter. (I'm guessing.) Made kind of a whirring noise. Gonna test it tomorrow when I have time and daylight. Any ideas what else it could be in case it isn't my starter?

    And thanks guys.

    Was it a loud whirring/grinding noise? If so, it could simply be a "flat spot" on the starter and will either require a few more attempts or a gentle whack. Which does indicated that it does need replacement, if it happens often, sooner rather than later.

    My does it maybe once a month... less since I'm never home to drive it. I just try to start it a few times and it catches eventually.

    Update (March 1, 2011).

    Got into an accident the other day and was forced into a median. Luckily, I avoided the other car (who tried to change lanes right into me...) and therefore avoided body damage. Unfortunately, my underside is pretty screwed up right now. My resonator, muffler and the front part of my exhaust pipe (right below the exhaust manifold) are damaged and will need to be replaced/welded. Also, my radiator seems to have been damaged even more than it already was and will need to be replaced.

    Update March 4, 2011


    I picked up a new radiator today because my old Nissan one (lol) was leaking from the top seam. Found a local radiator supply company that had a ready-rad in stock. (I haven't heard much about this brand, hopefully it holds up decently.)

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, my underside has been welded with the exception of the resonator. (The hole in it is small, it isn't too loud.)

    Here's a pic of the new one:

    Radiator installed. No more leaks! I also took the liberty of replacing all of my rad hoses and cleaning out my catch can. So far so good with the ready-rad radiator, took me around five or so minutes more than usual to get my car heated up to reg temp.

    Massive update to original post, will also be updating again tomorrow with several more recent pictures.

    Dear mods, is there any way to change the title of this thread, or will I need to delete it and create a new one? Maybe I should just to organize the first page better. Open to advice on this.

    A little late but heres an update:

    Went with a 2.25" catback exhaust. It has a 12" Dynomax resonator (NOT glasspack) and nice Dynomax muffler on it. Thing sounds amazingly quiet at idle and at high rpms sounds pretty beastly without that rice-ish raspy tone at all. Overall it's quiet but very deep sounding. I tried the Flowmaster 40 and 44 series as well as some Magnaflow mufflers before finally settling on the Dynomax. I found that the Flowmaster mufflers sounded too high pitched for me while the Magnaflow mufflers were a bit too... I don't know how to describe it... whiney? Kind of like a mix between a buzz and rasp.





    I went ahead and bought the Scion rims from my friend I've been talking about. Got em a couple of weeks ago. Here's some crappy quality pics of her after her bath today:






    She definitely needs an alignment right now; this last week I upgraded from 14" to 17" wheels AND changed the left CV axle. Thing is pulling to the left every time the road becomes even slightly bumpy/concave.

    Alignment is fixed, lookin' nice after a bath.

    Put some new gauges in:






    Need to fix an oil leak coming from the oil pump O-Ring and replace the other CV axle when I get the money/time. She's running good right now though.
