  9. I'd suggest you may be able to sell the head, assuming it still has the cams etc. I'd advertise it on some of the Celica/MR2 sites as someone may wish to use it as a mod base. I doubt anyone will want it as a replacement unless its a VVL and they happen to have trashed a head with a dropped lift bolt. If I were you, I would keep hold of it though. Save up some more beanies and have it flowed and new cams profiled. Then you can have a day out to have the heads swapped and gain a bit more from your car The rest is probably junk, if it were mine I would probably take to it with an angle grinder just cos its fun to hack em up and see how they are put together, but thats just me Some of the sensors etc may be worth keeping around, someone may need em some day. If you dont have room, just bin em.
  10. I think if they worked manufacturers would be fitting them, the increase in fuel economy would be worth the thruppence it would cost em, and do they really think AUdi wouldnt whack it in if gained up 50 geegees for sod all effort. Seems mad to me, why spend billions on research when you can just whack a fan in the intake LOL
  11. Frankly I think building a car that resembles an older model is pretty much the kiss of death. The Celica struggles to be taken seriously as it is, in any gen so lets hope they dont do it any further damage.
  12. The G7 was a total switch around for Toyota. It went from the older heavier engineered vehicles to a much lighter weight higher revving setup. This coincided with its drop out from rallying and into F1. Dont forget they tried and proved new materials, most notably MMC for manufacture of the engine and gearbox casings. It shows when you get the two units, you can easily lift a G7 engine without a hoist, do that with a G6 block and your going to need some help from a doctor. They proved the point too. Its easy to forget all about what was actually achieved with the G7 and wobble on about big turbo GT4 cars and the wonderful rallying days but in reality its not as simple as it used to be. Bloody tree huggers LOL I do think it is about time they caught up though. When other manufacturers are managing to squeeze good performance from NA engines there is no reason why Toyota shouldnt do the same. The Celica should still be a four pot I think, stick with the same sort of format although they really must bring back an AWD, cant see it happening unless it can be justified entirely from a handling point of view and they go all out for performance as the AWD will kill the MPG, and thats a selling point these days. I think a good strong 2 litre pushing around 250bhp in NA form with a high RPM, packaged in a body as light as the G7 would be great, that would give them a great dinky coupe that should hold up to honda nicely. The more interesting thing should be a new supra. For me thats got to be a V8, it just wont compete seriously with the offerings from the Germans or even Vauxhall's VXR8 if its not. The price is going to be a big issue here though. The Supra was always too damn expensive. It needs to be coming out for about £35k with all the power and handling needed there in the base model. I'd like to see an extras list that consists of all the junk that you just dont need, auto box, flappy paddles, sat nav, climate control etc. Power and handling all there without any need to spend more money. They do that with a minimum of about 400bhp and RWD and it should be a big winner. Thats my penneth worth anyway
  13. Cant see it being an issue. I used to run mine on track and it never got too hot to touch, unlike the brakes which got bloody hot Just make sure you prep it properly.
  14. oh puh-lease, not the old 140/190 thing again. Have whupped the butski off many a 190 in my boggo 140. It has little to do with the cars, remember, manufacturers numbers do not allow adjustments for the size of testicles/amount of mental that is driving the damn car.
