Good evening all,
Have you ever had one of those moments where you swear you would never do something again? I'm living it now!!
My name is Greg and I live just outside Brisbane. I am the former owner of an 89 camry with a 3sgte engine. As with all things life got in the way and I decided to move on. I was never going modify a car again - until I came across my new baby - a 1990 Gun metal grey Australian widebody Celica GT4.
I had been looking on and off for over 18 months for 185 in decent condition. A straight body and paint was a must - I wasn't so worried about the engine as I had a ready made drop in already. I ended up buying mine from an apprentice mechanic who couldn't afford to keep it on the road. Its funny how things turn out.
Once I bought the car I made the decision I was going all in on this one. So the car is currently sitting in my mechanics workshop at Zillmere getting the full treatment. I've clearly lost my mind as I'm already in the process of the following
- rebuild the engine and all associated hardware for a goal power of 400 - 450 whp.
- New precision power turbo to match
- Custom exhaust manifold and dump pipe and full 3 inch stainless steel exhaust and muffler
- A set of Gold Rays Gram lights rims
- New clutch to handle the uprated power output.
The dream is to have a nice understated cruiser but also something that can do a bit of track work and have some fun down the drag strip as well :-)
Hopefully will be able to catch up with a few of you around the traps in the future.
