  3. Hello to all.. 2 weeks ago.....I recently bought a Jdm celica gt4 m 1995 2 l 3 s gte motor...std..fitted with the small std Toyota ct 20 b turbo unit...I brought it back from Torquay in Devon...nearly 300 ish miles..all good..last week I lost all boost suddenly...no warning nothing...now it just sits on the gauge bottom & spools up to the first mark...with a whooshing metallic sound...my brother in law stripped off the following...charge cooler,exhaust manifold,turbo & radiator....he found the following perished..manifold gasket, dump valve damaged,rocker cover gasket,main turbo hose to the air box,k& n air breather filter clogged / dirty...after a quick diagnostic check it came back with a code of 54...inter cooler or air pump...I sent the turbo down to turbo dynamics in Dorset last Tuesday...today I found the turbo is goosed...the housing is cracked,the turbine & compressor have been damaged & the wastegate housing is cracked...not repairable...so...I'm after the folowing please...turbo to air box hose std or aftermarket,std 16" alloys either 3 spoke or 6 spoke oe items,used turbo. Front manifold,de cat pipe & full exhaust..dump valve ,turbo timer,digital actuator??? I'm in Essex...with re any turbos I'm offered...I'd like to have it sent & checked at turbo dynamics ...before buying it..I don't want to get caught again...I like the car ...but I'm looking at keeping costs down..so I can travel & collect in person...before removal the charge cooler was full,with fresh fluid & it flowed when the throttle was used ..so I take it the pump must be ok???? Any gt 4 members local who can pop over to ware in Hertfordshire & shed some light?? Any help appreciated thanks jim
  4. Hello ..I've just bought a white 1991,t bar off e bay unseen last week.. £450 ....drove it home from Swindon to essex ....noticed a few faults so I'm after a few answers..1. At 70 mph quite a bit of vibration through the steering wheel....goes away at 80 mph...I've had both front wheels balanced & tyres have 5 mm tread matching budgets in 215/40 /17 w dl..2. When starting from cold it takes a few turns to fire up..resulting in a high tick over at 2000 rpm....& takes ages to come off then sits at 1300 rpm...most of my driving is in town & short trips max 2 miles..3 seems like it has a intermittent power Loss issue..its kangarooing on part throttle & when it's ticking over it seems like it has a small miss fire...4. Temp gauge takes ages to come off cold & when warm only sits at 1/4 up the gauge...this may be down to a leaking waterpump which is getting done today along with the cambelt it's done 144,000 miles with no history .. 5. Low Amber oil warning light stays on ..but it's full..switch/ sensor???..I've already spent £550 at gsf on the following...1 all service items 2 rear brake caliper...3 both front shock absorber inserts..3. Cambelt & waterpump 4 rear pads...5 rocker cover & sump gaskets...2 x new rear 235/40 17 tyres at.. £160 etc ...obviously was a bit of a dog..14 owners ...etc..I've still to do the rear exhaust ..ive ordered a used one off e bay ..bottom heat shields need a few bolts ..they were cable tied on...lol...so all in all..a bit of a money pit..I only bought it as my brother in law runs one...I haven't replaced the dizzy cap yet as they are £50 ish & after I pay for the cambelt I'm skint..so I got caught...but it's a keeper...so all in it stands me in at £1200 ..so if there's any members in essex that can pop up I'd apperiacite it..or any help / answers given...here ..cheers jim
