    Default Exel's Official 1992 Toyota Celica GT-S Project Thread

    Well..

    I found one.

    A pretty good condition 1992 Toyota Celica GT-S. Excited to start working on it!

    Here's some pictures.








    Already working on it! Getting it smogged either tomorrow or Friday!

    It has about 156k miles. I'll have some better pictures up of the whole car soon. I have it at my buddy's shop to inspect it thoroughly.

    Yeah, it's not too bad!

    Excited to drive this. I've had my ST for over a year and the only thing I ever wanted from that was more power.

    Really? Awesome!

    Why did you sell it?

    I currently have a black 1993 ST and this 1992 GT-S, considering selling the ST.. not sure, though.

    And.. the engine is out.

    I sold it cause I have a 12' subaru sti. 13' subaru brz. And a 90' all trac so there was no real need for it. Plus I moved about 3 hours from where I used to live so it was just easier getting rid of it.


    There are better pics in my gallery. Along with interior shots.

    Some pictures of them on the car..





    Needs a good drop..

    How much do you guys think?

    I'm running 225/45/17

    1.5" drop?

    What's the offset on those? Looks like a little wider than typically used on a 5th gen, if so, probably only a 1" drop... which is impossible without coilovers since Eibach stopped making the prokit for our cars.

    The wheels are 17x8.25 +25 with 225/45/17

    As for coilovers, I have coilovers. I have two celicas actually but am going to be selling my ST as I got this one.

    So I'm getting a CEL 2 and CEL7 check engine light code.

    Any idea what it could be?

    CEL 2 - Air Flow Meter signal.
    CEL 7 - Throttle Position Sensor signal.

    I figured out the engine light code, it was not 2 and 7, it was 27. Oxygen Sensor.

    Getting that fixed soon.

    But for now, have some more updates.

    When I got this car, 0/10 of the speakers were working.

    Now I'm at 11/10 working.



    If you're wondering why 11/10, one of my rear tweeters isn't working, but my subwoofer works.

    Here's a picture of the car last week, before the drop and some other stuff..




    When I was first looking into the audio system.. as I wasn't sure if they cut the harness or not or what was going on back there because the stereo wasn't working and neither were the door speakers.

    Anyway..




    Another one before the drop..



    I unfortunately got the GT-S without the voltage meter thingy thing.. so I changed my cluster.






    The day after I dropped it, I think.. still needed an alignment.




    And here is the most recent picture I have..



    I've done quite a few things in these two weeks..

    I got an alarm installed with all the good stuff, got my Touch Screen Radio / GPS player on my car, got an amp to power up my speaker doors, ran 4-gauge wire for my subwoofer setup, upgraded my subwoofer amp as the other one was going out, swapped GT-S cluster for better GT-S cluster, got some floor mats for the car, swapped all speakers with the ones I had on my ST, fixed the hatch light (it wasn't working when I got the car), added a brighter LED light to the dome light, fixed the glove box light as it wasn't working when I got the car.. I believe the only light that doesn't work is the cigarette circle light thingy but meh.. anyway.. clear corner lights, clear blinker lights, XXR wheels, alignment and of course, coilovers.

    Maybe some more stuff I might have missed, but I'm excited to keep working on this car.
