I've had a glimse of your build on 1stgencelica and I must say : "Wow, what a nice build going there"! That's my kind of thing, swap out the big R for a smaller T :tu:

I'm just a little disapointed about the 4T... I would've love to see a reproduction of a TA64 twin cam turbo... but hey, the OHV T engines are capable of big time horsepower with parts available everywhere so I kind of understand your thinking... it's just a little less sexy looking in the engine bay :roll:

Keep it up!

Wasn't sure about those wheels at first but they suit the car perfectly and look phenomenal with the color combo. 8) :tu:

this still makes me smile! I love the fact that you are going backwards in the engine swap where most would go for a newer engine! :tu:

It is very interesting when you see whats on the market and the hype of the new engines like the 2RZ bandwagon as i call it, and other newer technology and more advance engines out there, but then you realize when all the equations and budget is finished is all comes to what fits your pocket, and in the other hand you see the cars in the dragstrip with such combos and compare, then you ask yourself, it is worth for me to spend that much $$$ to run the same, just so i can brag i am running a newer technology engine? i say NO,
So i stick with whats have been proven, try and true, anyway it is just a 300 hp street car to cruise and have fun, in a budget anyone can afford!
