First off, yeah, I don't actually have a 1st gen, but a bunch of my internet searches lately kept leading back to this site. So I asked some of my forum friends and somehow got an email address which led me to someone that allowed me to register here
While I might not be very active here, I really do appreciate the work others have done in thinking outside the box and figuring out performance solutions for these older Celicas. I'm sure a lot of the info will cross over and can be used on my car (I recently picked up a few pair of RX7 calipers for a killer deal, so that's my latest research).
My own ride is an '85 Celica GT. I swapped a van axle in for the F code diff and designed/laser cut brackets for a disc conversion, ditched the flip-up headlights, deleted the sunroof, made my own Bilstein inverted monotube coilovers using inserts from a RAV4, and recently completely gutted it and started on a custom harness in preparation for a 3SGE BEAMS swap (even using an is200 cluster that I got from the UK). This was mainly bought for RallyX, but until recently when I yanked the engine, was also my DD.
No intro thread is good without pics, so 2 of my favorites
