whoops, forgot the info on the Celica... :oops:

1975 Toyota Celica (with 73/74 conversion or clone)
20/22R hybrid motor:
-93MM pistons
-LC Engineering stage II cam
-mild port job
-44MM Mikunis
-Hedman header
-TRD plug wires
-MSD ignition
-NOS system (nitrous jetted to 60 HP per squeeze!)
5 speed
4:3 gears out back
all original interior (i still have the stock steering wheel)
(i can't take credit for this build. i bought this Celica from a good friend of mine and i plan to continue with the build.)

still working on the suspension and brakes. i have some Whiteline suspension bits and a few odds and ends that i saved over the past 15 years...

just broke a 1K miles on the break in of the motor and put down 100 HP to the wheels on the dyno.

still need to re-jet the carbs and adjust timing with the new cam. i was told i may need an adjustable cam gear since the cam is so aggressive. right now the motor runs OK... revs pretty quick to 7K RPM. runs very rich past 3.5K RPM and it stumbles a bit. the carbs are dumping way too much fuel in right now.

but the sound of the carbs at wide open throttle... PRICELESS!!!

the Autobahns are whats current right now.
