The Story

Originally I had a white 2000 Celica GTS (auto) as my first car. Unfortunately due to an accident, crashed it, and had it sitting around the house until I figured out what to do with it. That's when I came across this blue 2000 Toyota Celica GTS on Craigslist for sale for $1100. Of course the reason for such a low price is because the owner threw a rod and made a huge hole in the block. I looked through the pictures and read the description just to entertain myself and came across one specific part, and it read: "6 speed manual". I rushed to this opportunity and managed to bump the price down to $900 and immediately brought it home on a trailer of course. The following week, my dad and I pulled the 2ZZ-GE out of the white Celica and dropped it into the blue (current) Celica. Drove the car for a few weeks and unfortunately spun a rod on the highway due to an oil pump failure and towed it back home. I was bummed for a few weeks but later decided that this was a great opportunity to rebuild the motor with stronger and performance parts and that's where this build all started. Originally my goal was to make it all motor but decided to turbo it with the stock bottom end and built head. Eventually I'll go about building the block too but due to time and budget. My plan is to daily this car so reliability is a big concern so I'm probably not going to push the car past 350-380WHP, at least until I get another car. I will occasionally be tracking as well as drag racing this car so expect to see me out at Palm Beach International Raceway, especially during Street Racing Made Safe and Bizspeed events, even the car meets.
