  1. Bit of a silly question but what advantages /disadvantages does the E56 gearbox have over the S54 gearbox on the Gen 6?
  2. 2nd pic is the cable to the oil level sensor in the sump
  3. Lambda sensor off a UK spec 1996 GT 3S-GE which I am breaking. This sensor screws into the downpipe under the car forward of the cat about in line with the bulkhead & Front subframe. Some lambda sensors (I think for the JDM Imports) have a flange with 2 bolt holes. I have seen some which bolt /screw in to the headers but I think this is mainly on the 3S-FE engine.
  4. After a long wait, these arrived yesterday. Still need a little bit of TLC to get some of the small dings out but I am happy with them.
  5. Today was a bit of a session, removed, stripped, cleaned & rebuilt the rear calipers, removed broken thermostat & replaced with new one & replaced split Aux. belt.
  6. Had advisories on my old GT for having a Noisy exhaust ever since my run in with the local plod regarding my exhausts 'Looking loud' & my mate who is my MOT tester found out. There are regulations regarding noise, ISO5130 gives the procedure on how to static test. BUT and this is the problem, the regulations for noise test is actually 82dB at a 30mph drive by test. Static test for SVA or import is 99dB taken at 3750RPM. The Police can do a test, it is the static one, they ask you to rev to 3/4 of the way to the red line 3 times & take an average. (this is actually wrong as they pick and choose the lowest possible limit so will try and fail your ca)r Norfolk Police state that the regs are 82dB, but in court they were proven wrong. Basically, the law is that if you have an aftermarket exhaust, it must not be louder than that of a standard system. Toyota do not know what the dB reading on standard system on a Gen 6 should be. An MOT tester can fail a car if he/she feels that the noise it too loud, but cannot actually test for noise using a dB meter. so it is a persons perspective. Some like loud exhausts, some don't. There is a much longer story to this back in my archives if you really want to search for it..
  7. just setting up,  Paul is Mr Scuba lol

  8. My first Celica I still have ... just, This was taken a week after i got her back in Sept 2009. She has been off the road now for just over a year and will be stripped down this summer for parts. Slowly de-modding. Some bits have already been moved over to my Vert, my Wifes ST & also my sons ST.
  9. Being pedantic it is a Digital caliper as there is no vernier scale. But really it is my digital clock. I am a 'Measuring Monkey' and that Mitutoyo Caliper clock has been eyed up by a few people as they are like rocking horse doodoo to get hold of. Even harder to get than some JDM stuff
