Hey Guys,

 

My name is Woj.  I'm from Perth.  Have got a RA28 in the garage to build up.  Currently all media blasted, primed and hanging out on a rotisserie.  Have a few parts already like a Vipec V88 and the obligatory hilux diff.  I'm going a little different in one aspect, that I've bought a JZA80 front suspension that I'm putting into it.  Still not 110% on engine choice for it, but there are a good few options I'm considering.

I'm thinking about a 2GR-FE......  Would like to try some N/A action.  Have had turbo cars for a long time.

Hey Titch,

 

I've got a 1GR-FE long block to see if I can get it to fit where I want.  I'd like to 'shift' the firewall a little bit, so will see what I've got to work with in that respect.  Definitely 6 speed on the cards!

Ahhh yes 1gr is a pretty good choice. Good power plenty of torque too, wouldn't need to do any work to the motor in something as light as the Celica too.
