Toyota Celica GT-Four ST205 from Spain

Inlägg av NitroNitrous » tor 10 sep 2015, 19:25:09

Hi everyone!

I am from Spain, but me and my GT-Four just moved to Sweden three months ago. I bought in Italy in 2013, where I have been living for almost 7 years, so it is the European spec, left hand drive. During this time, the car has given me more than enough reasons to keep it with me forever and ever, I can't love it enough.

When I bought it the turbo was shot, the supersturt and steering rack needed a refurb, the exhaust pipe had a leak and the catalyic converter was fucked up. So while getting the turbo rebuilt, I thought that could be fun to get a stage 1 for just few more hundred euros, so that's what I did, and that was the only mod by then. It got a full service, replacing all the fluids, and the car dynoed 285hp at the crank. Over time, I decided to replace/upgrade the following parts:

K&N panel filter
Whiteline rear anti roll bar
Mongoose full catback exhaust system
Custom gauges made in the USA by Speedhut
Late spec steering wheel with red stitching
Sparco carbon pedals
NRG weighted carbon fiber gear knob
Rota GTR 18x8 wrapped with Nankang NS2R semislick tires in 225/40 18
Mishimoto radiator
Poly bushed front suspension

After being done with that, I have also bought the following parts, which I would love to install as soon as possible since I bought them long time ago and they are standing in my living room:

Two post spoiler and riser blocks
Tein springs
Top ball joints
Ecumaster EMU standalone ECU
Rear poly bushes

And here it goes the first question for you, guys: Where near Gothenburg can I take the car for eventual repairs and tuning? I am in contact with the master in ST205s, Pipedreams, but he does this kind of stuff in his spare time, which is not much, so it's becoming difficult to get an appointment. So I would like to find someone reliable not far from here who can do some of the jobs that are not very specific. I would like Pipedreams to take care of the suspension and brakes, and probably Overtake.se for the ECU installation and remap, but for the rest, which includes a full cambelt service and a small leak that I have in the manifold gasket (I think) I wouldn't mind to take it somewhere here around Gothenburg. Any suggestions?

I have travelled all over Europe with it. The last trip was when I moved from Italy to Sweden. It was a one week road trip visiting friends in different countries, and of course, a stop by the Nurburgring, where the car showed how awesome it is after almost 20 years. Time for some pics!

So the idea is to keep the car almost stock, with just basic mods that make the car quicker not losing the original essence and rather easy to undo.

This is just a quick introduction, but the story from the beginning up to here has been epic, with lots of experiences to tell. Cheers!
