  1. No I don't cut the bag just as it is. The best thing to use are the little silica bags you get in shoe boxes etc
  2. I leave a bag of rice on the dash whilst the car is parked up, it doesn't completely stop condensation but it certainly helps.
  3. can not believe mr T prices sometimes

    Agree on the SGS jacks etc very good bits of kits. With regard to the boot struts then the "mod god" has come up with an ingenious solution
  4. Just seeing if anyone knows the ST205: L947 NSS? It's come up for sale and has seriously caught my eye, it's got quite a healthy spec so it can't of been built unnoticed! There's no price on it, Iv got an idea of what it should be up for as I maybe tempted to swap my Evo for it. Ad details below: Up for grabs is my pride and joy, FULLY FORGED MASSIVE SPEC 490bhp proven Toyota Celica Gt4 jap import, around 15k spent, stacks of paperwork and photos of the build etc! Engine was built around 18 months ago and done around 20k miles since. 145000 km on the shell so around 90k miles so very low for the age. Currently running a healthy 490 bhp at 1.7 bar with room for improvements but the car is fast enough to say the least ! 4 wheel drive so puts the power down perfect ! Very well maintained whatever the cost, body is mint with no rust unlike most gt4s, really has to be seen to be appreciated, these are getting very rare now especially in this condition and spec list and are only increasing in value ! •rev2 block (stronger than original) •wossner forged pistons •Eagle Rods •arp bolts •acl bearings •fully balanced bottom end •fidanza lightweight flywheel with new clutchmasters pressure plate and unsprung 6 paddle friction plate only done around 500 miles •rev3 st202 fully ported, polished, 3 angle valve cut cylinder head with st202 inlet cams •AEM trutime vernier pulleys all dialed into suit cams •rev3 st202 side feed inlet manifold with this removed •1050cc top feed Injector's on hks top feed fuel rail with fuel pressure regulator all set up by tuning developments •thermal intake gaskets on both the head and throttle body •AMWMOTORSPORT custom tubular exhaust manifold with a gt3582 Turbo bolted to it. •Turbosmart external wastegate and screamer pipe coming out of the top grill, sounds insane on boost and flames! •3" custom downpipe matched to manifold then 2.5" from downpipe back including decat, sounds awesome, pops, bangs and flames! •4" solid air intake with the filter sitting where single head light would originally be •big aluminium radiator with twin cooling fans •front mounted intercooler with solid pipework as short as it can be with turbosmart blow off valve to match wastegate. •340lph fuel pump •front mounted oil cooler mounted just behind the top grill. ELECTRONICS: •MOTEC M4 engine management with gm 3 bar map sensor •BLITZ turbo timer •oil temp gauge •Boost gauge •Water temp gauge •Double din touch screen head unit with satnav which is fully working/cd/Bluetooth/DVD etc •Electric windows, mirrors SUSPENSION: •mcpherson front strut conversion with tein 30mm lowering springs all round, sits very nice and doesn't rub etc •fully polybushed all round (front and rear) •new drop links all round •new track rods and track rod ends •2x new front wheel bearings •new brakes all round including rear shoes and all 3 handbrake cables replaced. EXTERIOR: •C1 replica fibreglass front bumper •TRD fibreglass side skirts •TRD fibreglass rear spats •smoothed Ariel hole •smoothed rear wiper •17" rota alloys recently refurbished so all very good condition, also have 4 brand new yokohama prada tyres INTERIOR: •gen 7 front leather seats •plasma dials clocks •overall the car is in very good condition for its age, been used on more or less a daily basis and never misses a beat! •engine was built roughly 18 months ago and has done roughly 20k since the rebuild. no expense spared when it was rebuilt. •(it had new genuine oil pump, water pump, full genuine gasket set, cometic 1.3mm headgasket, new timing belt kit etc etc) •The car recently ran 490.5bhp on tuning developments rolling road with printouts to prove so the setup it's got works very well and there's room for alot more. Im looking for sensible cash offers or swaps: Evo,skyline,sti,facelift focus st,burg vxr,BMW 535d,335d,m3,645i,merc c220cdi 08+,Audi s line Diesel 09+,pulsar gtir,Range Rover diesel,golf r32, something old school mk2 escort, rs turbo etc. why? Also open to lower value cars and cash... I'm located in Blackpool, thanks Any help appreciated. Ta
  5. Exhaust Noise MOT Failure

    One of my old Evo's was measured at 110db at a track, still went through MOT test ok. Its all down to the tester at the end of the day though, what one deems acceptable another may not

    Dinitrol. Looks like black paint and dries hard, there's some pics of mine after it was done on the previous page
  7. Underseal

    I was up there Saturday having the alignment checked and Dave said you were all booked in. You'll be in good hands with them, there the only guys I let work on the Evo's Iv had
  8. Hey again guys! Celica track car question.

    Agree with the above post. The MX5 handles well and does look fun but on most tracks they get blitzed. We've got a 306 GTi-6 for track use, had it 2 years and not actually got it on track yet but the recipe is there, cheap too!
  9. Underseal

    Some places charge as little as £80 but that's a quick wizz over with an aerosol can! If you've got the facilities, patience and don't mind getting messy then it can be done yourself but £400 is money well spent on it IMHO
  10. Underseal

    I haven't got any pics of the actual process, they did take some whilst doing it but haven't forwarded them to me yet. These are the pics I got yesterday though
  11. Underseal

    Tyres are going on tomorrow so il get some underneath pics whilst it's in the air

    MG Autos - 01773 745400 Ask to speak to Dave. Mine was £400, everything off from underneath, cleaned off, dried, cavity wax and underseal. I left it there for a week as it had a cambelt change etc aswell
  13. Underseal

    Iv just had my Evo done by MG Autos in Ripley, excellent work as used them previously. They are an Evo specialist but I'm sure they would accommodate most things
  14. I always did 112 on the GT4, I think that was what the workshop manual stated. There should be something online for the gen7 too I always do the wheel nuts upto this torque and then check them after 30 miles or so
  15. What did you drive before your Celica?

    Yeah definitely interesting! It was fast but only on a dry, straight road from 50mph onwards. It made a 2015 Carrera S look silly on the A46 lol
