Bought a 91 celica shifter from a pick and pull junk yard I liked the way it felt and how short it was

Well.... anyone following this thread will probably get an alert that it has been updated. SO HERE GOES:

The car now belongs to me. Fired it up last week. Heats up to operating temperature. Lots of plumbing was done for cooling system along with some trick water lines that route under the car (so no speed bumps for this badboy, period). I'll need to make some bump stops or a skid plate to protect them.

Most of the HARD work is done. I got it with no gauges and a broken driver side axle. I currently have a friend building axles for it (very stout ones) that shouldn't have any issues. The motor sits forward a bit, place some extra strain on axle angle, but it's more proper for weight distribution. Motor runs good. Heats up well. Charges battery.

Widebody done well. Need a new engine cover (rear deck lid, trunk, bonnet?).

Suspension is good, have coil overs I need to finish. Just added new tail lights.

Engine cradle is legit, trans mounts need work. Driver side obstructed by shifter cables. Easy fix.

Roll cage needs to be welded in.

New to wire and add all necessary gauges.

Need to finish air flow for radiator.

Need to fix exhaust. Great idea, poor design for airflow.

Need to paint it.

Needs the proper width tires installed. Running 215s on a 9.5 wide rim like the honda guys, should have 235s or 245s.

I will keep updating this from time to time. Unfortunately, this side had more info on what I picked up than the owner did. All in all, it's all there. Once its registered (after axles come) I'll get it over to my friend's dyno shop and get you guys some numbers on the engine output.

I'll also run it down Sonoma's drag strip just for an idea of power to weight, but it will be built for roadracing, NOT the drag strip. That's what an LS1 is for.

Any comments or suggestions are welcomed. Especially if you know anything about the car, hahahaha! It's pretty close to done and I'm excited to FINISH this thread for you guys, clearly it's been dragging on for quite some time!

Cheers! and my name is Brian.

Welcome Brian! Was wondering about that car recently. Glad to see you're finishing it. Feel free to ask questions if you need help. Sounds like you have a good plan.

BTW... the AXLE broke? Not the CV?
