No more rear interior, I'm gonna redo the interior with por15
after sanding everything down and cleaning it up to prevent
rust from forming.
Power Steering & A/C Removal

Yeah so I removed the PS and AC from my car and its much
lighter and better throttle response... and more efficient on
gas... the car is also lighter feeling... and can corner
slightly better. I can feel a smoother transition in turns.
Check out the engine bay now... I can see the asphalt.

So I bought a new radiator, its all metal and painted black...
so far its alot better than my old oem one that was made of
plastic which eventually cracks and is annoying... so yeah...
also I decided not to put the carbs and on decided to sell

So I got weber carbs... was very unexpected... just happened
on spur of the moment cause they were really cheap. $250 for 4
carbs, 3 manifolds, 3 alternators, and other stuff. Anyway I
wont put them on till I get my headers, exhaust, cams, and
polish head and 5 angle valve job done along with new valve
train and rebuild. Well anyway check out the pictures.

I got a new intake and it's overall much better than the
restrictive stock air box. I have a much better throttle
response and more torque and TVIS kicks in harder than Marc's
lift (Celica GTS). Here's a

Yeah so I finally got around to installing my shocks... it was
a pretty easy process. However it would've been tough without
the air compressor and impact gun. But very simple. I think
I'll try to get a "How To" up on this... sadly I didn't take
any pictures of it. So I guess I'll take pictures next time
when I get my springs. But the my review of the shocks are...
they're stiff. It's alot better than riding on bottomed out
shocks, but they're a bit stiff... I guess it's better that
way... now I don't hop anymore at a launch... however... I do
fish tail around for a bit. Overall its a good buy, a bit
stiff but still good. BTW if you decide to change your shocks
make sure you get an alignment afterwards.

About time, I finally got my repair manual so I know what I'm
doing on my car. I got it from Amazon.com... I suggest you get
one cause it has alot of information one wouldn't be able to
remember off the top of their head. Like torque specs for each
bolt and nut in your car, electrical wiring diagrams and
etc... Also... since I got a new camera, I think I'll start
taking pictures of the local car gathering I go to on Friday
nights. Maybe some of you will like that.

In Japan when you get your license for the first year you have
to buy this emblem and attach it to your window or fender or
somewhere visible on your car. It's magnetic or a sticky like
those Garfield dolls. However the usage of this is that in
Japan people are to put these on to indicate they're new to
driving and to warn other drivers, however some choose to flip them upside down to state that they're
expert drivers. They also have one for senior citizens which
is designed as an autumn leaf. But at the moment I only have
the spring leaf. You can check out what it looks like in the
pictures section. None the less... I highly doubt that is
true, since neither have I nor my aunt or cousins seen it
before used other than for its original purpose.

Welcome to my little site, this site is focused on the Corolla
GTS made by Toyota in the mid 80's. As time allows I'll be
updating information about my car's progress to what would be
my ultimate race car.
-On November 22nd of 2002, 200+ miles from home I purchased my
first car, a red 1986 Toyota Corolla GTS Liftback. She was in
decent condition for a sixteen year old car with about 204,000
miles. After all the paper work, first thing I did was to go
and see what she was capable of. That night was the first of
many drift sessions to come.
