  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)

  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
  8. dude, if i where you - go to celica club uk and get reading the threads in gens 1-3 forum or go to the classic toyota forum here at toc and ask there.
  9. This has allready been decided. there isnt a best celica... there are two celica's which share the podium. Carlos Sainz GT4 and RA28 gen 1 GT.
  10. cat temp sensor. hell, i dont even have a celica and I knew that.

  16. JAE gives an ideal oppertunity to meet all the attendees prior and make final arrangements....
  17. matey mates. How does the dates of 27th July - 5th August suit? would these dates be better for anyone here? The previous rough dates suggested fall during the GT4OC challenge weekend and we have 4 members who want to come but will miss the Annual event. P.S letting us know nearer the time may mean you have no ferry to book or you may have to get a earlier/later ferry and wait for us/catch up. The closing date for this will probs be about 4 weeks before we set off so we can make relevant bookings.
  18. mine does it in just under or around 6 seconds when running optimax with millers octane additive. pulls a 14 second 1/4 mile, loses puff after 60 mph though - gearing in faff is better for stretching the legs. if you can afford it get a faff as they have more releasable power from the word go. if your serious about it though get a Carlos Sainz limited edition ST185 or a JDM import RC special edition. (JDM have a few more horses) Definately the one to own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! here's a pic of a modded one; here's a pic of a standard one

  20. Hi there yourlove was. matey, shy bairns get nowt - so they say. No point standing at the back of the crowd, you have to push your way to the front for the best view. Grab a mate to come with you for some moral support. We dont bite. You celica is a 190 yeah, so it aint slow is it. We'll be making good progress on all routes, 80-90 mph max I would think for economy and safety + to stop ON the SPOT fines for speeding. Once your on the autobahn you can bury your foot or stay with the slow coaches (thats me, my L200 does 110mph top whack). We'll all have printed routes from michelin so it'll be impossible to get lost if your navigator is good. get yer name down matey.
  21. Hi folks. :D A Euro driving, camping and partying trip is being organised and we are looking for atendees. We will also be contacting various Toyota clubs in Europe to hold meetings in various locations along the journey. B) Dates are Thursday 24th August 06 Dover to Calais. Return Saturday 2nd September 06. The suggested Itinary is as follows. Day 1 - Thursday - Calais to Fontenay Le Compt - BBQ, camp over at my parents farm house. Plenty of hospitality, thru rural france. Day 2 & 3 - Friday - Fontenay Le Compt to Biarritz - Camp over, beach on Saturday, lark about and have a laugh. Day 4 & 5 - Sunday - Biarritz - Barcelona - early doors pack up and drive accross Pyrenees/Andora to Barcelona - Camp over and have a great time. B) Day 6 - tuesday - Barcelona - M ar seille - arrive in the french riveria and get wet in the Med. Day 7 - wednesday - M ar seille - Bern - unmissable drive thru french/swiss Alps to switzerland. Days 8 & 9 - Thursday - Bern to Bonn - night on the beer - day 9 Nurburgring for those who want to or chill in Bonn. Day 10 - Bonn - Calais - back thru brussells. Those who don't want to drive their own machine can book into attending vehicles. I have started a thread in National Events (even though it's a continent trip) and just thought I'd post here aswell to get some exposure incase it's missed by someone who really wants to do this trip. As far as number of places are concerned, we just need to make sure that all vehicles are roadworthy for the trip and that we have space to carry people and equipment if anyone breaks down. I may have 2 places in my L200 Animal. We are suggesting that certain folks take responsibility for certain legs of the journey. for example, I'm organising the first run - Calais to Fontenay le Compt - providing a place to camp at my parents farm house (in the barn, in the field, in the garden, in the caravan, in the house - whatever takes yer fancy) and a big slap up BBQ on the first night to get us underway. Another lad is looking after the Biarritz to Barcelona run, but of course we need reccomendations, opinions and suggestions to make this cool for everyone. Post in this thread here by all means but please ask questions or make commitments to attend in the thread in the meetings section http://toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=53584 A car which does 30 mpg average on motorways is going to cost approxiamately £500-600 in travel costs - ferry, tolls, fuel. If two are travelling it's £300 each + spending money. The more the merrier. things to consider - two legs of this journey are going to be a 7 hour drive. All the other legs are around 4-5 hours - so in effect, you looking at 7 legs in 10 days (not including getting to dover and return to home) this will be tiring but not overly so as long as you get good rest, eat well and drink enough fluids. It isnt exactly a Enduro run but it isnt for the faint hearted or weak willed. this really is one NOT to miss for the big boys :D OK cheers and hope to see you on the run. Karl
  22. anyone gonna stick their names down in this thread? http://toyotaownersclub.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=53584
  23. 10 days. set off dover morning of Thursday 24th August 06 and return calais afternoon of Saturday 2nd Sept 06. on day 9 in Bonn those interested can go to the nurburgring as its a wee drive away. The estimated fuel costs above; They just didnt feel right. I don't know when the Michelin website was last updated for fuel charges. Just spoke to my Step Dad in france. current prices ( oil has just gone up to $15 a barrell); Off the autoroute - Derv 1.10-120 Euro per litre - Petrol 1.30-140 euro per litre. So between 80p to £1 a litre. Autoroute charges - add 10-15%. My stepdad also said look at Route Nationale as well (just normal roads) as they are quick too but you have to slow down to 50K's thru towns. is it worth saving costs on fuel and tolls on autoroute to add time to legs? maybe on route's of scenic interest and to ease the boredom of the motorway driving... So based on those prices I have come up with the following. 2300 miles At 30 mile per gallon = 76 gallons / 342 litres of fuel per vehicle. If petrol costs 1.4 eruo a ltre thats a quid a pop - so £350 for a vehicle that does 30mpg. if most of the legs are autoroute I would expect celica's and N/a MR2 to get 35 mpg? GT4's, Tubby Mr2's and L200 25-30 mpg. In any event a car with two passengers sharing costs is looking at around £250-300 tops per person for all travel costs (ferry, fuel, tolls) Still a cheap auto holiday in my books! I suggest an earlier ferry on day 1 to get to my folks place early enough to enjoy a BBQ and well deserved rest. The leg from Biarritz to Barcelona is another 7-8 hour trip and will be utterly breathtaking! really looking forward to that part (and the alps too) and suggest we have a BBQ for lunch on the route. Accomodation - camp sites for tents will be cheep cheep - in france your looking at no more than a fiver a night. So far we have the foloowing definate attendees. 1. Cubic Inubi - L200 Animal 2. Ratboy (celica club) Celica GT 3. Rayve (celica club) Celica 190 4. Git1982 (celica club) Celica GT 5. Rogue (GT4OC) Celica GT4 We need some definates as we intend to book campsites in advance. (August is french national holiday period and campsites will get busy) Folks - this is a Euro trip of a lifetime. We have - camping in rural france. Camping at Biarritz and the beach. Pyrenees and Andora mountains to drive through, BBQ's along the way. Mubikille - french riveria and the med to lap up - French and swiss alps to drive through - will be utterly breathtaking. Germany's autobahn to cruis on and a trip to the Nurburgring. All easily done in 10 days with plenty of time to rest and have fun. This is the 'Driving' holiday of 2006!
  24. take an old speaker out and take it with you when looking at replacements - get a ruler and measure the internal clearance and do your calculations with the new units in your hand - out of the box, in store. if the mounts are a little off and you cant get all the screws in buy a hobby UHU glue gun (cheap) from B&Q or similair and glue em in.
