Round 2...


Baccccckkk in the game.

John (94tercel) called me earlier this week telling me about this Tercel I need to save from the crusher...pretty much bought it without seeing it. John brought it by friday night (05/12/17).

So its a '97 CE with 144k. Coral Rose Pearl w/ poverty bumpers. 3spd auto, front sway bar, plastalloys, fixed back seat, no clock, AC (works!) and PS car. Still even has the stock radio and front only speakers.

Little rot on the left rear 1/4 & gas tank, otherwise a very solid car. Trans has a busted differential hence a very cheap price of the car. Also the rear strut mounts have blown thru.

The intial plan is to find a JY trans to get it on the road (along with the strut mounts) so I can put the Yaris up and finish the turbo kit for that.

Then considering slapping a 3.5psi simple turbo system (cuz I can) until I have gathered all the stuff I need for a 1nzfe & 5spd swap. Around the same time, I will do a roll cage and strip the car.

Already threw together a 2.25" cat-back with leftover parts from other cars to give it some tone, rear muffler is from a Fiesta ST.

Do you understand the significance of 3.5psi on a tercel?

I thought maybe the decimal point was in the wrong place, but a simple 35 psi didn't seem like something I would expect to hear from anybody but me.

It all depends on the set up. My last car went from 91/97 to 112/124 at the wheels at 3.5psi and most importantly i picked up 4mpg.

You can run 3.5psi on a terseo with absolutely no modifications to the fuel system or ecu. I do run one step colder plug tho.

And it drives smooth and clean.

I approve this message.

It was my office manager's daughters car. It was headed for the scrap yard. I couldn't let that happen with how solid the car was, minus the gas tank.

Now that I think about it Greg, I have all the pieces from the new "rusted" engine to get a ct9 turbo kit going for this car. We should do it. After my car is finished, I'll piece it together and we can get something done.

I cannot get a 3spd for less then 450. I am just going to jump straight into the swap at this point. Plenty of 1nz in the JYs
