Roddicks 5Sgte St162

You'll need a MAP sensor.... its the sort of thing that shouldn't be bypassed. You can buy them pretty cheap off ebay etc in say 1, 2 or 3 Bar, bu the problem will probably be calibrating it for the stock ECU. Aftermarket ECU's allow you to calibrate the MAP sensor in the initial setup.

ok well i finally come back to look how long its been since i was last here and its been nearly 2 years....................

 

ok alot has happend.

 

first off I'm not sure if i ever mentioned it at all on here but this car is now de registered and on its way to being a cams approved loggbooked 3J car. not much has happened inthe way of engine that a purely stade the same. i did infact get the car running really well off a standard 165 ecu, but for some unknown reasons this just started to collaps out from under its self. one thing led to another, i changed the timing on the car which lead to it spiking to 15psi so i changed it back and then for no reson at all the coil pack shat itself. got a new one of them then the ecu was throwing knock sensor codes out changed the wire betweenn the ecu and the sensor. no fix, then changed the knock sensor.... still no fix, even got another ecu... still no fix. the car sat for about 4 months with me not touching it because i was over the situation i was in, when finally i bit the bullet. i bought an adaptronic which was the best desicion i ever made. but befor that i also made myself some coilovers for the front. new exhaust system through the car, 3 inch to the cat then 2 1/2 after but will change to all 3 inch without a cat coming out infront of the rear right wheel. i did score some yoka advan A048Rs for my 15's but they are too big of a profile and makes it look like a 4wd or a stock car, so i managed to get some 17's. but the rears are now on 25mm spacers because the rims are +45 and celica can only run a max of +40. but because i have coilovers in the front i don't need spacers.

also the whole intire car has been gutted. i have a 6point 3inch monza harness. scored a race seat out of my father inlaws folden Capri sports sedan. have a removed the cd played and replaced it with a kill switch and missile switches. still have to install the kill switch pull cable outside of the car. but i am just in the process of installing the seat, i also have a full detachable stearing wheel. with a 3inch deep momo vinal race wheel. a few tow hooks and shit and thats about it really and bonnet pins just to make it look racey and stuff. and some new disc's in the front and managed to score some green stuff pads for cheap as.

 

i am still at this stage in the process of getting the car tuned. the car runs on a base map, and will be giving it a small tune at symmons plains, and then will be taking it to confyne in ulverstone to tune the rest as they are a tassie dealer for adaptronic,

 

from here on in my plans are to get the race seat in with harnes in the right location. then tidy up the car and wires. take it to symmons to give it a rough tune, then look at taking it to confyne, then get the roll cage built and get it scrutineered as a 3J car after the eligibility officer has come back to me about the car being eligible for IP or if i have to put it in another class.

 

The big thing I'm aiming for is Bathurst......... the IP class runs on the same weekend as the 12hr endurance runs. and that is were i want to be in at least 2 years. once i have done it once, thats it ive done my dream. and i will stick to state searies..

 

i will post some picks up later but it hasnt really changed much still looks the same just with a few more additionals

Cheers Sean

Decided yesterday while having th day off I notice the car has managed to pick up and oil leak which was behind the turbo. And I notice the crack on the manifold has gotten bigger and a lot of soot has come through so I took the whole turbo setup off the car. Going to look at purchasing a new manifold tomorrow so I can put it all back on this weekend maybe... Finally took the air conditioning pump out of the car so now I have to find a shorter belt and the rib tensioner to go with it. Good thing I got a mate at Toyota spare parts... Will post some pics tonight

 

befor
