  1. hi. oil pick up pipe is often offender. Also when ragged to high temps **** collects in sump (blocking oil pick up pipe) oil starts to get thick and bits block journals starving them, not enough oil during the squeeze causes friction and ending result is failure. IMHO if you have a 10 year + Celica, get the engine internals cleaned professionally (oil drain and chemical flush under pressure) will save ££££'s in the long term and you can drive them hard without worrying. I had it happen to me 3 times on 3 different celicas.
  2. You need the rev 3 3SGE ECU and loom. Simon (Celicauk) from Celica Club UK did a rev 3 conversion on a ST162 a few years ago. It's pretty straight forward with a bit of work needed here and there to gt it to connect up. Try Celicatech aswell. cheers
  3. did you run engine up to operating temp with rad cap off, leaving rad cap off did you turn on heater to full heat and full blower, did you replace rad cap after all air bubbles had gone?
  4. Once upon a time there lived a man who wanted to know about the underated and misunderstood GT4. He took a GT4 running average boost to a B road for a thrashing. He rode it hard. He then tried to do the same in a FWD celica. He found NO comparison. He realised GT4's were not designed as straight line machines, they are rally cars. He realised that given a proper car, his driving skills became immeasurable next to the average joe in a fwd 'looks sporty' car. He lived happily ever after. End of story.
  5. I used both aswell as GT4OC for a couple of years. I found all three sites to be friendly and useable. Obviously TOC! and GT4OC are more in depth for information purely because of the traffic the sites see and the specifics of the forum topic. I found TOC to be very very friendly. I now use motorcycle forums and must say that bikers are more open and relaxed, hardly any bitching, lots of wind ups and lots of swearing (this is the real world afterall, not a Victorian tea room)
  6. 2001 on a Y reg (tho every one thinks its a 04 plate as it reads Y204 *** ) 8.5K miles New Dunlop 207 tyres Good chain and sprockets, will do another 8K miles easily. Red with silver wheels (not black wheels) Immaculate condition Recent service incl brake pads and brake fluid Carbon hugger and tank protector Completely standard apart from carbon 'look' bits as above. Owned since May 06, 2nd owner. Will come with a pair of original cam chain tensioners, still in packet (bought from D.Silvermans as thought CCT's had gone, turned out to be me hearing things and reading too much on the net) Not much to be said really, untouched, never fettled standard machine with the biggest carbs honda had ever used on this torquey V twin :D Power: 98.00 HP (71.5 kW)) @ 8500 RPM Torque: 90.00 Nm (9.2 kgf-m or 66.4 ft.lbs) @ 6500 RPM Dry weight: 192.0 kg (423.3 pounds) Tank: 16 litres Dual front disc brakes. Will crack 150mph real world (indicated 170mph) Pic from May 2006 at dealers Other pics (has had lots of meguiars wax paste since these pics) £3000 OVNO or swap why?
  7. Well chaps & chapess's - I've made the next step to realising my dream - it's took me 3 years to get this far. On Wednesday I ordered a spanking K6 GSX1300R Hayabusa.... It's arriving to my door next Thursday - Allready got the TRE restrictor kit to disable the top speed limiter.... the bikes a 9 second qtr mile machine in stock guise. For the spring i'm looking at fuel management, full race cans and perhaps a 50bhp nitrous shot to get her above 200mph on a runway flyer. Then there's talk of turbo mod's to get it up to around 250bhp and later with more power a long swing arm as the 07 season progresses. So all my celica's are gone, no more pantsing around with nitrous or turbo's on cars for me - i'm now in the real deal. here's a pic of the machine in my collours; hers a few spec figures for you; 1299cc, 4-stroke, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve, TSCC Displacement: 1299cc Bore and Stroke: 81.0 x 63.0mm Fuel System: Keihin/Denso Fuel Injection Compression Ratio: 11.0:1 175BHP @ 9,800 RPM at the crank Top Speed 200MPH derestricted :P
