Libby,
If you get stuck Alltech has a big box full of offcasts which has some Toyota stuff in it. You'd need to get an example one to match up with though, as none of it is labeled or immediately identifyable.

110 Wairau Road, Glenfield.

Finding the bit that fits the turbo end is a no brainer. Problem is that you need to match the rest of the pipe that snakes down to the block where the oil feed/drains are, and that's nearly impossible unless you already have one to match up with.

Well, you're kinda stuck then. It's next to impossible to adapt anything to the Toyota piping as it's really crap metal and can't be welded to.

Where are you taking your oil feed from?

well, tho whole thing has been put on hold at the moment, due to i might be getting a better car to put the turbo on, so not entirely sure about piping yet, might be going full custom feeds including the bolt on parts but the guy who is gna be doing it wants the original parts to work off

most of my ideas are coming from gt4's seeing as its a 3sge

Well, surely with the way you're going it'd be better to either:
a: Buy a complete 3SGTE/loom/ECU and drop it in
b: Buy a GT-Four instead.

Either is going to produce a better car, and I'd almost bet that it'd be cheaper in the long run too.

considering id be looking at around $1500 for a 3sgte, plus loom and computer and the other costs involved and the way im doing this one is working out to be less than $1000 (due to contacts for cheap or free parts), 3sgte conversion isnt cheaper

Also i have done sum research and found that i can derive more power from turboing and working a 3sge than i can from working a 3sgte...

Uh huh. I'm fairly sure that a 3SGTE complete can be had for less money that that these days.

I'd be interested to hear how you intend to keep a 3SGE in one piece when you turbo it, particularly how you'll handle fueling under boost.

I'm upgrading fuel pump to gt4 and running a fpr and i have 7mgte injectors so that solves the fueling problem

2ndly, there is only .7 difference in the compression between a 3sge and 3sgte and we'r putting a slightly thicker, most indestructable headgasket we can find

besides, it has been done successfully, want the proof go look at http://www.turbocelica.8m.com

Well, surely with the way you're going it'd be better to either:
a: Buy a complete 3SGTE/loom/ECU and drop it in
b: Buy a GT-Four instead.

Either is going to produce a better car, and I'd almost bet that it'd be cheaper in the long run too.

110 Wairau Road, Glenfield.

Finding the bit that fits the turbo end is a no brainer. Problem is that you need to match the rest of the pipe that snakes down to the block where the oil feed/drains are, and that's nearly impossible unless you already have one to match up with.

If you get stuck Alltech has a big box full of offcasts which has some Toyota stuff in it. You'd need to get an example one to match up with though, as none of it is labeled or immediately identifyable.

Do you mean a rising rate fuel pressure regulator?

Compression ratio isn't the only issue when it comes to turboing vehicles, and putting in a thicker stronger gasket isn't always a good idea - head gaskets are designed to be the weakest link in the chain so that it blows before anything else gets damaged. Putting it in other terms, would you rather blow a gasket or melt a piston?

Don't wish to pour cold water on this (I love modding, don't get me wrong), but I'm seeing some pitfalls that perhaps you haven't considered. Stock non turbo engines are often a lot weaker than their turbo cousins, and just because someone has done it doesn't mean to say it's long-term successful.

At least it's a 3S you're trying to turbo, and not a 4A-FE ;-)

ummm, cully, go look at www.turbocelica.8m.com a turbo gen 1 3sge which is exactly what im doing
this 3sge has successfully been turboed and fully modded to a more powerful turbo than a ct26....
I am doing my research as best i can but i dont have much time at the moment and im not rushing into this either as i dont really want to stuff it up. i have help from sum guys in auckland and a couple down here who know turbo's and the 3s family of motors
it has also successfully been done by members of the Alltrac & GT4 club

>ummm, cully, go look at www.turbocelica.8m.com a turbo gen 1 3sge which is
exactly what im doing

OK, I've had a look at that, and I've just about finished shuddering.
Before I continue, I have to correct one thing first:

---
"The 3SGE.3SGTE series motor is one of the most innovative design in the
Toyota family of engines. The engine has the potential of upward of making
over 900hp. The engine was the same one Rod Millen used in the record
breaking run in the AWD Celica at the Pikes Peak Race."
---

The engine that Millen used on Pikes Peak bore absolutely no resemblance
whatsoever to a 3S. The engine was a complete custom built race unit that
had roughly similar external dimensions to the 3S, but that's about it. It
was running 80(!!!)psi boost, and there's no way that any 3S could handle
that.


Anyway, back to business. You're obviously well convinced that this is the
right way to go - cool, fair enough, go you. Given you're trying to do your
research, perhaps you'll take these as a few things to consider along the
way:

The 3SGE has a different block, rods and pistons to a stock 3SGTE. As per
previous you'll find that they're below spec of what a 3SGTE has and should
be treated accordingly. It's in your best interests to treat them carefully
as I"m sure you don't want a dead engine on your hands. For example the
3SGE lacks the oil sprayers in the block which spray oil onto the bottom of
the pistons. These are designed to help absorb and distribute the heat of
combustion that is otherwise soaked up by the piston.

Cam profile: N/A cams are far more agressive than turbo cams. This gives
rise to problems when you turbo an N/A engine in a couple of areas. Mostly
the problems arise from the amount of overlap that the cams have. In an N/A
engine when it's relying on vacuum to fill the cylinders there is a larger
period of time when the exhaust valve is still open while the intake valve
is opening in order to maximise the scavenging of exhaust gasses and
induction of fresh charge. When a turbo is on the engine and there's a
great big hairdryer pushing the charge into the cylinder, that high amount
of overlap will lead to fuel/air coming into the cylinder and straight back
out of the exhaust before the exhaust valve closes. That results in unburnt
fuel getting into the exhaust (where it can ignite from the heat and burn in
the turbo - not good for ceramic turbos!). Additionally the early opening
of the exhaust valve after the combustion stroke will lead to more
still-burning mixture exiting the cylinder (as opposed to an N/A engine
where the duration of the combution is much shorter with less fuel/air in
the cylinder). The upshot of which is that you have to be very careful
about the temperature of your exhaust gasses leaving the engine if you don't
want to wreck your turbo. For a near-stock turbo'd engine you should be OK,
but if you get tempted to up the boost then you've got problems.

Knock sensing: The 3SGE has no knock sensor(s). In NZ this isn't a
particularly pretty thing with our fuel. Detonation control in a turbo
engine is of paramount importance, and removing knock sensing isn't a good
thing IMHO. If you're going to run a 3SGTE ECU etc then you'll have a
problem with having nowhere to plug the knock sensor feeds into. Not sure
what the ECU will do with this, but I suspect it'll end up in limp-home
mode.

Lastly, consider what you'll do to the value of the car. The reason I'm
such a knocker of people who try to do engine swaps is that I've been there
and fùcked that up, and ended up sending the car to the wrecker because it
wasn't worth trying to cert/sell. Even if you make a pristine job of the
conversion, you'll end up with a car that's of less value. People won't
touch it if you try to sell it, insurance companies won't want to know you,
and so on. Basically you're trying to create something that can pretty much
be purchased out of the T&E - a turbo'd ST16x, give or take the 4WD. You
can already go and buy one of those for about $4k. Isn't it better to buy
something that'll retain some value, won't cost you moonbeams in insurance,
and will ultimately perform better?

Hope this helps some.

Cully

cheers for the novel cully lol
yes i know that that website was wrong about rod millens car and i know
there are a few things i need to think about like that, but i am only gna be
running 6-8psi until i pull apart and do the internals and i will not be
going stupid and trying to push out 16psi or more even after the internals
have been done

with the cams, i have been told by 3 people that i dont need to worry about
them, as the gt4 owners are all putting 3sge cams in their 3sgte's and
getting better performance and no problems

your trying to make it sound harder than it actually is, as well as i dont
really care about the cars value as i will not be selling it unless its
written off and then itd be to a wrecker without the motor lol

just watch and wait, itl be at suprafest next year, racing hunt, and all
going well, maybe even kicking is puny little butt :-P

Cully will be awaiting my reply to this!

Why do you say you can get more power from a 3S-GE than a 3S-GTE??? Word
your answer very carefully, I have a little 3S experience ;-)

Also, to which generation are you referring?

Oh really?

ummm, cully, go look at www.turbocelica.8m.com a turbo gen 1 3sge which is exactly what im doing
this 3sge has successfully been turboed and fully modded to a more powerful turbo than a ct26....
I am doing my research as best i can but i dont have much time at the moment and im not rushing into this either as i dont really want to stuff it up. i have help from sum guys in auckland and a couple down here who know turbo's and the 3s family of motors
it has also successfully been done by members of the Alltrac & GT4 club

Do you mean a rising rate fuel pressure regulator?

Compression ratio isn't the only issue when it comes to turboing vehicles, and putting in a thicker stronger gasket isn't always a good idea - head gaskets are designed to be the weakest link in the chain so that it blows before anything else gets damaged. Putting it in other terms, would you rather blow a gasket or melt a piston?

Don't wish to pour cold water on this (I love modding, don't get me wrong), but I'm seeing some pitfalls that perhaps you haven't considered. Stock non turbo engines are often a lot weaker than their turbo cousins, and just because someone has done it doesn't mean to say it's long-term successful.

At least it's a 3S you're trying to turbo, and not a 4A-FE ;-)

I'm upgrading fuel pump to gt4 and running a fpr and i have 7mgte injectors so that solves the fueling problem

2ndly, there is only .7 difference in the compression between a 3sge and 3sgte and we'r putting a slightly thicker, most indestructable headgasket we can find

besides, it has been done successfully, want the proof go look at http://www.turbocelica.8m.com

Uh huh. I'm fairly sure that a 3SGTE complete can be had for less money that that these days.

I'd be interested to hear how you intend to keep a 3SGE in one piece when you turbo it, particularly how you'll handle fueling under boost.

considering id be looking at around $1500 for a 3sgte, plus loom and computer and the other costs involved and the way im doing this one is working out to be less than $1000 (due to contacts for cheap or free parts), 3sgte conversion isnt cheaper

Also i have done sum research and found that i can derive more power from turboing and working a 3sge than i can from working a 3sgte...

Well, surely with the way you're going it'd be better to either:
a: Buy a complete 3SGTE/loom/ECU and drop it in
b: Buy a GT-Four instead.

Either is going to produce a better car, and I'd almost bet that it'd be cheaper in the long run too.

well, tho whole thing has been put on hold at the moment, due to i might be getting a better car to put the turbo on, so not entirely sure about piping yet, might be going full custom feeds including the bolt on parts but the guy who is gna be doing it wants the original parts to work off

most of my ideas are coming from gt4's seeing as its a 3sge

Well, you're kinda stuck then. It's next to impossible to adapt anything to the Toyota piping as it's really crap metal and can't be welded to.

Where are you taking your oil feed from?

110 Wairau Road, Glenfield.

Finding the bit that fits the turbo end is a no brainer. Problem is that you need to match the rest of the pipe that snakes down to the block where the oil feed/drains are, and that's nearly impossible unless you already have one to match up with.

If you get stuck Alltech has a big box full of offcasts which has some Toyota stuff in it. You'd need to get an example one to match up with though, as none of it is labeled or immediately identifyable.

Actually I think Cully has explained it easier terms than it would be :)

Libby, I wish you best of luck with your project, but it sounds to me that
you're heading in the direction of a very poorly performing engine, if not
major meltdown and complete waste of cash.
In the least consider the 3SGT over 3SGE.

Whats wrong with the 3SG? they are strong engines and will handle boost
upto about 10psi comfortably. Only thing that will really be of concern is
the compression and fueling., Right?

I was told using the non turbo engine maybe a little quicker to revv as it
doesn't have the heavier internals, compared to the NA ones.

Anywyas.. im only going by what people have said but feel free to shoot me
down :)

Nothing. Go back and read Cullys comments re the GT (Turbo engine) Vs GE (NA).

There's a bit more to it than just these factors.

I haven't put in my 2c yet..thought I'd better...
I'm an advocate of doing outrageous things to engines so I can say 'hey - look what I did'. But at the end of it all, it only ever cost me $$$$$$$$ and all I had to speak of was a car that went well for about 6 months and then caved in on itself because it wasn't up to the task. This engine, like the 3S, has turbo cousins that are a HECK of a lot stronger internally, that would be well worth spending the money on.

In regards to power, you say you can get more hp out of a turboed 3S-GE than a 3S-GTE. I can assure you that the same amount of money spent on a 3S-GTE (or indeed, a gt four), would be more satisfying in terms of originality, and cost effectiveness. Think of all the fabrication, and tuning you have to do. Hours and hours of tuning, just to get the right spark timing and fuel mixture. That's just the ignition and injection..then there's everything else you have to worry about when you take a 'family sports coupe' and make it a lot more powerful than it was supposed to be. I'm not just talking brakes. Please, PLEASE think very carefully before you go ahead with this, as you'll inevitably find yourself dripfeeding it more and more money, and when time comes to move on, what will it be worth? What happened to all the $ you spent? You have a cooked 3s-ge and an alrite turbocharger, and a standard st162 body.

As I mentioned before, just my 2c!

Regards,
Jonathan

ok guys
a lot of you are trying to either put me off this little project or sumthing
but the thing is, i dont want to do what every1 else has been doing to their
celicas

adrian is right, the 3sge is capable of 8-10 psi boost without causing any
problems, this has been proven by people doing this and suceeding, turns out
also that wen they get traction lol, they are pulling faster 1/4 mile times
than a gt4
yes there are differences that make the3sgte stronger, but i am taking my
time with this little project and doing it the right way
im not letting out all my secrets until its finished and goes up on our
website, but we have all the little problems solved and i will be running
8psi without a meltdown

remember peoples, the 3sge is one of the strongest motors toyota produced,
and there have been many successful weird and wonderful things done to them

watch and wait and hopefully u will all be proven wrong at suprafest 04 when
it turns up and races without blowing up....

You may also want to consider who is giving it, the experience and technical

Build the world's stongest engine, add detonation, hear the pistons melt.
Think carefully about the differing engine designs, and why the developers
deemed these differences important. Can you amagine how much Toyota spent on
development. Bet these guys knew a thing or two :)

engines....

Pitty I probably wont be up this year to see it, was hoping it might be closer
to home.

Hope your budget includes hours of Dyno/tuning time.

Good luck and above all I hope you have fun and learn something out of the
project.

That's the issue, when (or if) they get traction. What gearbox are you
intending to use? MR2 Turbo converted to front engine configuration?

>they are pulling faster
> 1/4 mile times
> than a gt4

To be expected from a lighter shell. Would they be quicker or a wet road?
Nope.

I fail to be impressed by 1/4 mile times as they don't correspond to real
world driving. Put a few corners and bumps in the 1/4 and it would be more
telling.

Still a very interesting conversion. Just don't underestimate what is
involved. Also remember that a lot of the people on the likes of celica.net
are idiots who have paid someone else to do *everything*. A lot of the info
on there was not figured out by those doing the conversions, I actually
advised a few of the people on there regarding installation issues as they
had no clue themselves.

before....or at least other than profesionally.....go for it....I know that
when doing mine there were ALOT off ppl saying to just buy an already
turbo'd supra and not bother with the conversion but I did it mainly by
myself and I tell ya there is no such satisfaction knowing that you've gone
against what other ppl have said and succeded

1/4 mile times are not suposed to simulate "real world" driving other wise
it would be illegal to do a burn out, illegal to launch to hard, and you
wouldn't be able to go over 100kmph!!! 1/4 times are there to compare two
(or more) different cars as the atmosphere and conditions are the same as
the person next to you. There would be no point in saying "I got a 13.5 on
this 400meter stretch of road!!" when you mate with an actually slower car
can do 12 on a 400 meter stretch but one was lumpy and full of pot holes and
corners and one was not.....

my 2cents

Nothing personal Hunt, but there's nothing like the dissatisfaction of advising someone against doing a conversion like that, then having months of email afterwards with things like "My rev counter doesn't work", "I need a clutch pedal box", "I got pink stickered for having no cert", "My engine won't idle", etc... Just think, that $4000 you spent on your conversion could have bought a good condition 7M Mk-III that would be faster than what you've ended up with even before you mod it.

Or am I just repeating what I said two years ago? Oh well, no matter.

??....yea sure with enough fuel she be sweet .......after the man bolted on
the turbo fist drive BANG hey why can I now see my crank !!

Re: ct26 parts wanted   2003-07-29 14:43:00 <Hunt M>
hahah yeah i know Cully but my car goes fine and dandy and will race at
Meremere anytime and be able to drive home without any issues (ie no BHG
hehe sorry but i had to)....Rev counter doesnt work and I know why but are
too lazy to fix. The cert had NOTHING to do with my engine swap as it was to
do with my springs. My engine wont idle.....where did that come from? Oh
actually I do remember that and it was due to me not putting the plenum
chamber on correctly....or at least not tightening it up so no biggy....
A 7M that would be faster than what I have got now? I'm pretty sure that a
standard 7M would not be able to do a 15.3 on Meremere....just ask Suze!!!!
Don't get me wrong tho Cully and anyone else out there....I AM VERY
gratefull for all your thoughts comments and help over the last year!!

Cheers
Hunt

Is it just me, or is 15.3 a really slow 1/4?

Best info I can find is that a stock manual 7M does 15.6. Crank up the
boost to the normal 12psi stock max.... bye bye....

Re: ct26 parts wanted   2003-07-29 15:39:00 <Peter O>
I'm pretty much a lurker here with a Supra project ahead of me, my
mates actually.

What has begun to disappoint me is the number of people with clutch,
auto, g/box, engine, & turbo problems, & traction problems apparently.
I had come to believe that the Supra in most forms was a safe, rather
bullet proof package, long lasting & capable of sensible modding to
300hp without inducing premature component failure.
I for one want a vehicle that is dependable first, powerful & safe
with traction second, then third comfortable/drivable & good looking
inside & out (the feelgoods).

I question now are the Supras maybe too old, am I wasting my time
here.
Lets say I was considering buying right now with say $12,000
available, no pre-existing ideas about what was "best" ...........
what would be the advice you would offer - anyone please.

Pete

Nothing personal Hunt, but there's nothing like the dissatisfaction of
advising someone against doing a conversion like that, then having
months of email afterwards with things like "My rev counter doesn't
work", "I need a clutch pedal box", "I got pink stickered for having
no cert", "My engine won't idle", etc... Just think, that $4000 you
spent on your conversion could have bought a good condition 7M Mk-III
that would be faster than what you've ended up with even before you
mod it.

Or am I just repeating what I said two years ago? Oh well, no matter.

Nothing more than pretty much normal wear. There's been one recent failure
on a third party clutch.

Granted, but any auto of this age is liable to fail.

Not manuals - no problems with those.

Very few people have had outright failures. If they have it's usually been
tracable to one particular screw up/fault.

Only with CT12As on 1JZs.

Only for those whose idea of fun is to drag race in winter.

Correct. Stick with that thought.

If i had $12000, i would buy an NZ new Mk3 facelift
3.0 turbo, 5 spd, low mileage. There's actually a nice
red one at miles used toyota in christchurch :-)

I wouldn't go for a 2L supra if i wanted to mod it. I
do own a 1GGTE supra myself, but only as a daily
driver which it is fine for that purpose.

I would not go for a 1JZGTE either as modding is too
expensive in my opinion on these motors.

An NZ new Mk2 84-85 would be nice too with a 2JZGTE
conversion (hehe), but i doubt you would find one
unless David Linton wants to sell his :-)

A non turbo Mk4 might just be in your budget, but i
wouldn't bother with that either if i wanted to
modify.

Cheers
Andy S

Re: ct26 parts wanted   2003-07-29 15:55:00 <John Rosser>
i do have to agree with cully on this one, although i can't relate through
personal experience about the manual box or clutches, seen as mine is auto.
my auto is shot due to poor maintanance by a past owner, which caused the
plates to glaze, and things have just got worse since i got it (i know i
didn't really take care of it that well either).
as for the motor trouble i had last year, that is also neglect on my part, i
had an existing coolant leak somewhere, and until i could sort it, i just
kept topping up the coolant on water. hence, head went south, so did the HG.
the ct12a's don't seem to be a problem as long as people don't try to wring
every last ounce out of them, they were never designed as overly powerful
turbo'es, so everyone wonders why they fail when they throw more than 1 bar
boost at them.
heh, and as for the traction, what do you expect from a bunch of guy's
playing silly buggers on a 1/4 mile strip? traction was never going to be
there anyway, lol!!

at the end of the day, i've had my supra for three years, and other than
little niggles that is just personal stuff, nothing against the car itself,
i love the supra, and honestly thing i will never goto anything else.

john

ahh, now that rants over, i'm going for coffee.

I've only had problems with mine because of the fact that all the work that
has been on mine has not been done by a "professional" and has basically ALL
been done by myself with help from guys on here

as for the traction factor.....you try moving a 1 and a half tone car from
0-400meters with shitty old 205 tires hahah

oh and some more cents from me......
I bet if you were to read other performance car email lists or forums or

with their cars
yes/no/maybe i dunno just a guess....a small hit and defending the good ol'
supras

Hunt,

Your sheer energy & enthusiasm is at once sobering to witness & a
question of credibility.
Traction is absolutely important, for amongst other things, winter
unexpected power demands.
For safe high speed driving under NZ conditions traction is again
important.
I believe the Torsen diff delivers power to the road if good tyres are
used.
Brakes if properly sized in ABS form, will generally be more than
adequate for stopping.
Vehicle weigh is what the manufacturers & modders have to consider,
hence Audi Quatro, Jag X type & Mitsi GTO - all 4WD - all with near
perfect traction.

What I do not know is will the Torsen with decent tyres (max size
225x45x17 ???)deliver 300hp to the road, dry & wet??
How well does this apply to fast launch, say "dropped" clutch at
3000rpm.

Pete

as for the traction factor.....you try moving a 1 and a half tone car

I do soak up what available on some other car sites.
The truth is that generally the NZ Supra site is very active, full of
practical people able & willing to help & at least comparable with
anything I have seen elsewhere on the net.
I think on the whole Supra failures here are rather more obvious & a
bit scary.
Just recently tho, a huge amount of not so helpful traffic that is
mainly one to one & perhaps more suited to Mobile phone texting
(IMHO).

I bet if you were to read other performance car email lists or forums

yes/no/maybe i dunno just a guess....a small hit and defending the

Try moving a 1.5t car from 0-400m with 225 tires and no lsd! Than you'll learn all about clutch control ;)
My problems thus far: (Standard car, no internal mods, 150 worth of turbo control mods).

Leaking coolant hoses - attributed solely to leakin oil causing hoses to soften.
Clutch failure - attributed to abuse of clutch.

Simple just like I said your enthusiasm is wonderful.
But also I would think twice about your advice, because you are driven
by different needs.
I like a good buzz too but traction matters so I like to be aware of
how to fix.

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but what's
the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice given
here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or quick.
Damned shame!!

Re: ct26 parts wanted   2003-07-29 17:20:00 <Hunt M>
yes but what i am saying is what cully pointed out earlier....theres no
point in going down in such a beast such as mine *cough cough* LOL....during
the winter to try and get awesome times.....sure the air is cold and you
have heaps of power but so is the track....its all fine and dandy warming up
street tires and making the track all black and yucky with street rubber
(being a hypocrite now arent i) but the track is still cold and slippery
As with most cars.....tires make the world of difference.....theres no point
in buying 265 tires if they are crap...you could prolly do better with
decent 225's
make the car squat when launching.....soften the shocks and springs and left
that wieght go straight to the back....

oh shoot....you put LSD and torsen in the same sentence....wait for the
flames hahahah
I dont understand what makes a torsen so good? surely a decent working LSD
will do the same job? why is a torsen better for drag racing than a lock
diff?

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but what's
the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice given
here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or quick.
Damned shame!!

Try moving a 1.5t car from 0-400m with 225 tires and no lsd! Than you'll
learn all about clutch control ;)
My problems thus far: (Standard car, no internal mods, 150 worth of turbo
control mods).

Leaking coolant hoses - attributed solely to leakin oil causing hoses to
soften.
Clutch failure - attributed to abuse of clutch.

GA70 = 1G
MA70 = 7M

Spot the similarity of the letters on each side.

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but what's the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice given here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or quick. Damned shame!!

Try moving a 1.5t car from 0-400m with 225 tires and no lsd! Than you'll learn all about clutch control ;)
My problems thus far: (Standard car, no internal mods, 150 worth of turbo control mods).

Leaking coolant hoses - attributed solely to leakin oil causing hoses to soften.
Clutch failure - attributed to abuse of clutch.

Supras a stong as brick s**thouses...literally. Treat them right, MAINTAIN them properly, and no problems shalt thou have...

I've only had problems with mine because of the fact that all the work that

been done by myself with help from guys on here

as for the traction factor.....you try moving a 1 and a half tone car from
0-400meters with shitty old 205 tires hahah

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but
what's the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice
given here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or
quick. Damned shame!!

I've only had problems with mine because of the fact that all

basically ALL
been done by myself with help from guys on here

as for the traction factor.....you try moving a 1 and a half

Check the chassis number of some Toyota cars, and then check the engine numbers. You'll find that the first chassis character(s) is(are) the engine series code. St celica, JZa supra, Rx cressida, Mz Soarer

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but what's the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice given here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or quick. Damned shame!!

Try moving a 1.5t car from 0-400m with 225 tires and no lsd! Than you'll learn all about clutch control ;)
My problems thus far: (Standard car, no internal mods, 150 worth of turbo control mods).

Leaking coolant hoses - attributed solely to leakin oil causing hoses to soften.
Clutch failure - attributed to abuse of clutch.

An XT Corona would have had a shitfire...sorry, Starfire Holden engine that was basically a 202 with 2 cylinders lopped off the end.

Your Celica XX was the model name whereas the model number or code would have been MA61 :)

Check the chassis number of some Toyota cars, and then check the engine numbers. You'll find that the first chassis character(s) is(are) the engine series code. St celica, JZa supra, Rx cressida, Mz Soarer

Jonathon,

Surely more than anything you need a Torsen, not cheap I know, but what's the use of a Supra without a good LSD.
Frankly I hate clutches/manual g/boxs, but acknowledge the advice given here, that even the later 5 (& 6 ??) spd autos are not so strong or quick. Damned shame!!

Try moving a 1.5t car from 0-400m with 225 tires and no lsd! Than you'll learn all about clutch control ;)
My problems thus far: (Standard car, no internal mods, 150 worth of turbo control mods).

Leaking coolant hoses - attributed solely to leakin oil causing hoses to soften.
Clutch failure - attributed to abuse of clutch.

Supras a stong as brick s**thouses...literally. Treat them right, MAINTAIN them properly, and no problems shalt thou have...

Re: ct26 parts wanted   2003-07-29 21:27:00 <Hunt M>
had the 3T (1800OHV) which was what was used in the very early celica rally
cars but minus a turbo and dual spark heads
great little motor....did about 250,000k's and about 80 of those were driven
by me....and well to be honest i didnt treat it like i should've....did
regular oil changes etc....more often than gear changes....but i did manage
to take her out to 8,500rpm a few times (redline was 6,000).....was rather
noisy but still never stuffed up once....other than writing it off into a
drain but we wont go there haha

One by one:

> auto

Granted, but any auto of this age is liable to fail.

And the supra auto is not more expensive than any other auto to rebuild (in
my experience) - it's nice to bump up the line pressure though to get a
little crisper shift action. Not a favourite way of getting power to the
wheels in this group, but it the active nature of the electronic control
makes for quite pleasant driving.

>, g/box

Not manuals - no problems with those.

>, & traction problems apparently.

Only for those whose idea of fun is to drag race in winter.

Or the normal turbo behaviour of getting the torque surge about 50m after
leaving a set of lights on a wet road ... (damn, I forgot to allow for the
boost lag when accelerating again ... )

Correct. Stick with that thought.
