Since I bought a celica from a friend who bought it already broken down, the car was cheap, and it have since then, spent a whole winter under snow while the bank account gets ready for summer.

The engine was knocking ( spun bearing ) the transmission was toasted and had holes in the casing and the body really need love.

Need to prepare the body for some power by reparing minors rust dammage, making aditional spot welding, getting new rear subframe since the old one fell appart during removal. Also preparing complete suspension by changing every bushings, ball joint and necessary suspension components. Not fixed yet on coilovers since many good parts are still aviable. Finally, new engine and transmission are going in, good clutch, standalone Ms2 Ecu running on stock wiring, wideband, mishimoto radiatior,and the small 1.8 is going turbo!
