    93cc (Don) 81 Celica GT LB

    I picked up this car back in January looking like this


    and then I scored this wheels from Discount Tire for $30 each!


    Then just before PSTOF I decided I needed to do something about the paint and thought what the hell I give the roll on paint a shot.

    The car came with 22r with a 32/36 Weber carb.

    so far I have done the following...
    1. Replaceed the 32/36 with a 38/38 Weber
    2. I replaced the shocks with KYB GR2's.
    3. Trying to replace the blue interior with Black, currently I have the front half done except for the seats.
    4. Replace the wheels and tires (see above)
    5. Installed stereo, with 4 TEN speakers I removed from my AllTrac plus sub and amp.

    The car runs pretty well other then the vibration/shaking I get when I take off from a stop. Ryan (Snonuff) was helping with this
    and we think it's the center bearing.

    Oh and I need to do something about the front bushings, the steering is really sloppy

    I was thinking I would try and build an engine for this myself. Something with more performance, probably going to use a 20r/22r Hybrid
    engine I have. I'd like to get as much HP out of it as I can but keep it a DD, streetable car.

    For now I want to use my weber 38/38 with it but other then that I'm open to ideas, sugguestions, recommended parts/mods, etc...

    Let me know what you all think.

    The louvers are sick . You need to source the og supra aero if you can . The spoilers really clean up the back .

    Just completed a 20/22 hybrid swap

    This is the engine that is leaving... Snonuff is going to put it into one of his Stouts


    and here is the Swapped engine installed and running.

    I still have a few small things to work out but it is running.

    I Need a new Alternator, picking it up tomorrow and I have a OBX header that needs to be installed. I tried but the holes on the flange need to be drilled out a little to make it fit. Hopefully that will be fixed tomorrow too.
