www.importinnovations.com - they have a good stockpile of celica kits ranging from the ST165 to the 185 and 205 :) They are also based in the US and Japan so import prices might put you off - good prices though - just wish more places had a ST162 Kit for my lovely ride :D Oh yeah welcome as well :D
I live in Wellington, New Zealand... I love my Celica to bits and enjoy working on it and driving it hard :) My mates think its a barbie car (they have the likes of Honda Civics and GTX Familias - not my type) but I know its my car Best car I've had and I'm hooked up to Toyotas from now on... next car has to be an Altezza, Supra or 7th Gen Celica :D
Oh I'm soooo happy with my ride :D - went and saw the all knowing TRD NZ Branch and they gave the thumbs up for my 200HP 87 GT-R!! Got the car dynoed down in Wellington and I was pretty close to my estimates all along... 3SGELU - 166HP at flywheel - 160HP at Wheels (I was astonished at how little HP loss I got between the tranny and wheels) and the shopping list..... haven't laid down on specific brands for all of it yet so please provide feedback if you have some better ideas for me :) Air/Exhaust Simota Pod Filter - $180 NZ Custom made Cold Intake box Enlarged Throttle Body Air Intake Piping Tom's Exhaust Header (2.25 inch) Tom's Metal Head Gasket Coby Exhaust Muffler (2.25 inch) Coby twin exhaust outlet (3 inch) Fuel Supply High Capacity Fuel Pump Trust 300HP Injectors Spark Better ignition coil MSD Ignition Controller TRD HT Leads and Iridium Plugs I'm still in the dark about the Ignition/Spark controller - could one of the gurus shed more light on this? TRD also suggested I upgrade the computer to a 5th or 6th Gen and maybe put a custom engine management program onto the chip... some light on this would be good too :) As you can see I don't care about the look of the car for now PERFORMANCE!! ... that will come later along with uprated brakes and suspension...
Its right smack bang on the exhaust shield on my 3SGELU 87 GT-R - ya can't miss it... Like GT4_WRC said ya might need to take the heat shield off and will see the sensor lead down to the cat - best way to get to it is a mechanic's pit or GULP get ure hands down under the engine block, around the sump and tweak around with it - I'd go for the pit
