  1. E10 is on the Tesco pumps here now !
  2. I know this won’t help you, but found mine on the export certificate MIE 300 RO 3338 export certificate interesting as has the weight on it 1160kgs originally, bit lighter than the wiki has a GT.
  3. I have my import papers back at home - don’t think it’s on there but will take a look when get back. Do like the idea of knowing it and getting show plates ! also my brother lives in Japan, wander if service over there to check vin number to find ref number
  4. Red one on the right- on the phone anyway that’s where my finger goes !
  5. Not sure if this is in keeping or not - but this was the photo I first saw on the intranet that inspired me to hunt down and buy a celica, I thought it looked better than any other car that I had a chance of actually buying, and totally inspired me on my celica ownership! not sure whose it was....
  6. The pattern is 5*100 so that is a few others - if you want to go nuts, check this list out https://www.carlsalter.com/wheel_fitments.html
  7. Hi, few numbers on it, think its the top as thats the one on the sticker 1BL 008 193-00 50R-00917 152654 like these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274545972413
  8. Ones I have - I also have halogen projector dipped beams - wandering if similiar but yours have hid ballasts as well ?
  9. This is mine which seem the same, but size might be wrong (90mm lens)
  10. What size are the hella units ? Trying to see from the pics but that lower one at least looks like the ones I have which you can buy new still , though may be a bespoke size tbf
  11. Will it damage anything? Seems conflicting messages on that - in terms of seals etc .
  12. There has been some stuff before for the 3sgte - probably find MR2 forums better on that. A lot of US ones are rev2 3sgte's, though essential the same I assume. Example http://www.atsracing.com/Blog/View/23 Following is from KO Racing, which seems to be down so copied and pasted the cached text - again rev2 3sgte Stage 0: 160-165whp; 0-60: ~5.9-6.1; 1/4 mile: ~14.5-14.9 Required: Stock engine Stock turbo Stock exhaust Stock intake Stock intercooler Stock fuel system Stock ecu Stock ignition Stock boost control Stock clutch Stock axles Recommended/optional: Boost gauge -- the stock unit is approximately useless. Fine for stock boost levels of 9-11psi, but if you plan to raise the boost, or simply want an accurate gauge, the aftermarket mechanical units works great. Synthetic Oil -- this is a high performance engine. Regular oil changes with high quality synthetic fluids will help to keep your engine running at its best. Ensure the ignition components are in proper working order and there are no engine codes present in the factory ECU Stage 1: 200-230whp; 0-60: ~5.2-5.5; 1/4 mile: ~13.5-14.1 Required: Stock engine Stock turbo Upgraded Exhaust Both TKO 2.5, TKO 3", or Single exit R1 exhaust KO Racing Downpipe Free Flowing Air intake (Apex'i intake, K&N FIPK, or Cone filter with Vibrant adapter) Stock intercooler (Unplug the engine lid temp sensor to have the IC fan run always with the 'key on') Stock fuel system Stock ecu Stock ignition 15-16psi with boost controller (Either a manual boost controller, or electronic boost control, bypass the factory boost control) Aftermarket boost gauge Fuel cut defenser (factory ecus will typically cut fuel at boost levels above 11psi) Stock clutch Stock axles Recommended/optional: Upgraded ignition wires and plugs should not make a significant difference in the power output, though reliability and longevity of the parts can sometimes vary from one manufactuer to another. If using OEM Toyota plug wires, they should be changed every 6000 miles or when missing occurs (along with cap and rotor). The NGK spark plugs listed in the ignition components section of our website are one heat range cooler than the OEM specification meaning they can handle hotter engine combustion chamber temperatures better than the OEM heat range units. OEM cap and rotor are recommended as being the best units available for the 3SGTE. Synthetic Oil -- this is a high performance engine. Regular oil changes with high quality synthetic fluids will help to keep your enigne running at its best. Stage 2: 250-280whp; 0-60: ~4.5-5; 1/4 mile: ~12.8-13.2 NOTE: This is the stage where the factory fuel system limits will be achieved. It will be necessary to monitor your air/fuel ratio with a wideband O2 sensor to safely approach these limits when raising boost. You do not want to run leaner than 12.0:1. Required: Stock engine Upgraded Turbo Options: Upgraded stock turbo (46trim compressor wheel, 10 degree exhaust wheel clip) Stock Gen 3 3SGTE turbo (aka CT20b) Street Brawler T3/T4 Turbo kit Upgraded Exhaust Both TKO 2.5, TKO 3", or Single exit R1 exhaust KO Racing Downpipe (this is not necessary if you purchase a KO Racing turbo kit as the turbo kits come with their own downpipes specific to the particular turbo Free Flowing Air intake (Apex'i intake, K&N FIPK, or Cone filter with Vibrant adapter) Upgraded intercooler (KO Racing High Performance Intercooler Kit) Stock fuel system Stock ecu NGK 4644 plugs or 2667 Iridium plugs gapped at .028", New OEM plug wires or NGK plug wires · Either a manual boost controller, or electronic boost controller, bypass the factory boost control Boost Level: 18psi with boost controller on the upgraded stock or CT20b turbos (Either a manual boost controller, or electronic boost controller, bypass the factory boost control) 15-16psi with KO Racing Turbo kits Aftermarket boost gauge Fuel cut defencer (factory ecus will typically cut fuel at boost levels above 11psi) Recommended/optional: 270-280whp is the limitation of what the factory fuel system can produce. If you are unable to achieve this power level safely (as tested on a dyno monitoring the Air/Fuel ratio to be no leaner than 11.8:1) there is likely something underperforming in your factory fuel system, ignition system, or ECU. To go beyond this level you will need more fuel which introduces further issues. The factory ECU can control the factory fuel system quite well, but does not do well controlling larger injectors. Piggyback devices such as the S-AFC are strongly recommended to be avoided on the 3SGTE as the potentially engine killing issues associated with the way these devices "tune" the stock computer are too great to risk. Stage 3: 300-350whp; 0-60: ~4.0-4.5; 1/4 mile: ~12.2-12.5 on pump gas; 350-375whp; 0-60: ~3.5-4.0 seconds; 1/4 mile: 11.9-12.1 on 110 octane race fuel or E85 NOTE: This is the first stage where the factory fuel system and ecu will be upgraded. It is critical that any engine management system that is fully capable of controlling all engine functions be properly and safely tuned by a competent tuner. Not all professional tuners will match this criteria, nor will all amateur tuners not match this criteria. The purpose of engine management is to get you something you weren't able to achieve with the factory computer. That said, there is little to no reason you should have to sacrifice driveability, idle quality, startup quality (cold or hot), throttle tip in response, or any other feature that is not related to simply making more power. Engine management in it's most basic form gives the ability to control much larger than stock sized injectors and thereby facilitate the capability of making a lot more horsepower (as all horsepower is derived by adding commensurate amounts of air and fuel). Tuning at wide open throttle to make XXX hp is probably one of the easiest parts of tuning, though there is the risk of blowing up or otherwise permanently damaging the engine, relatively speaking this is one of the shortest duration parts of tuning. This component of tuning comprises typically 20% or less of the time required to do a full tune in my experience. Selecting the fuel system and turbo size at this stage should be done in such a way as to allow you to make the power you desire with some room to spare. In the case of the turbo, selecting the smallest turbo option that will support your horsepower goal will allow for the best transient response and quickest spool relative to your goal in most cases. On the fuel injector side: tuning a set of 680cc injectors or tuning a set of 880cc injectors will not change the effort involved, but the larger injectors will tend to run lower duty cycle and therefore possibly have some benefit in life. Smaller injectors typically will have a better spray pattern than large injectors, but as long as the idle quality is good, there can be negligible difference in the actual injector size from 880-1200 for example. If you, howeever, go to a very large injector, the resolution at idle will suffer and the injector may have so little time to open and close that it will not reliably be able to do so (typically seen with 2000+ cc injectors on 2.0 or 2.2L engines) and will require a higher idle speed (1200-1300 rpm in many cases). This is also the first stage at which it is recommended to upgrade the clutch vs. OEM. The OEM clutch can handle this power level, but will not have the life or resilience of heavier duty aftermarket options. It is not uncommon to get a couple of drag strip launches at this power level on the stock clutch and then have it haze and go up in dust on the third try. Your mileage may vary. The clutch most commonly selected at this point is the ACT HD pressure plate with either the 6 puck or the organic full face disk. The 6 puck is rated at 499ftlbs, and the full friction disk is rated at 383ftlbs. These are flywheel measurements and given the common disparity between HP production and torque production, it becomes a happy coincidence that typically those torque ratings can be used as a rough guide for the equivalent wheel horsepower maximum the clutch is capable of also. For example: the full face friction ACT clutch rated at 383ftlbs of torque at the flywheel is often good to about 380 hp as measured at the wheels on a chassis dyno.

If you are unable to achieve this power level safely (as tested and tuned on a dyno monitoring the Air/Fuel ratio to be no leaner than 11.5:1, and knock levels in a safe range) there is likely something underperforming in the engine mechanically, or in the ignition system. It is best to seek out a reputable and experienced tuner to extract the most safe power as your engine combination can achieve. Pushing this kind of power level can be safe and reliable but will likely live a shorter time than 100% stock setups. You will find out the limitations of your stock system when pushing up to this power level more than likely. The factory fuel lines will still be ok at this level with the upgraded pump and injectors. Tuning with the EMS will also allow the ability to do a race fuel tune without changing anything else which should yield 350-380whp at 22psi on 110 octane fuel.
  13. No to sourcing one or no to custom ? Should be no issue on a custom, it’s just pipe and flanges! Is yours old enough like mine not to have a cat as standard ?
  14. Googling it , seems to be an add on to blitz boost controller to further map the boost controller (dsbc is dual solenoid boost controller) . assumedly only of use if you have a blitz boost controller and ability to map it ? Wouldn’t affect emissions though .
  15. What I was thinking - def if selling would be super clear. Worth an ask like you say
  16. thanks for the link - If they could be worth something then might be worth chatting to a decent company to see if can be saved safely (safely being the important word! )
  17. Thanks - just been taking a look, 2 actually look pretty good, two not round, the above being worse. Might be worth it then
  18. Hi, I’ve got some oz crono 16” wheels, celica fitment. They are a very nice design, but at least two are not properly round anymore .... I’m not sure what to do - see if they can be made (a round) hole again, sell them to someone to see if they want to, or just bin them as damaged - check out the straight lines the worst one is this one - don’t really know if these things can be fixed or should be scrapped - and if they could what they would sell for needing to be fixed. i bought them ages ago with tyres, which I took off and already had my monies worth out, so have no financial stake anymore with them.
  19. Daily driver to me is your main car - you may not do many miles in it if you don’t need to drive that much, but it’s your go to main car. So mileage could vary - I cycle (or did!) to work so my celica was my “daily” even though it’s on a 4K annual mileage. Rav4 is prob the daily now but still doesn’t do that much.
  20. Ah - might be the wheels then prob due to less space for the 114.3 holes against the rim on those particular wheels - mine didn’t have that issue.
  21. You just need to make sure you get the right thread (m12 1.5) - some 114.3 studs are for nissans which are 1.25, but it’s nothing special about 114.3 studs in themselves. got mine from freaky parts
  22. sorry not read this all through so may be giving rubbish info lol. Are yours multi fit ? I bought 5 *100 to 5 *114.3 spacers, which meant I could fit my multi fit wheels which had both, as the excess 5 * 100 studs fit through those holes in the wheels, and the 5 * 114.3 spacer ones fitted into the those ones on the wheel to actually bolt on to.
