This video has been posted in the past but AE86Lan polished up the video and it looks much cleaner now and there is even a two minute bonus with in car video of a Nissan Laurel C33 with a RB20DET and a Nismo R200 LSD!

Brilliant: Swap a Honda F20 into a Celica XX

May 14, 2012 in brilliant

I think many purists will think this is blasphemy but I think it was a genius who thought of swapping the Honda F20 engine (presumably F20C) into a Celica XX GA61:

Why? Well the F20 is more powerful and has nearly the same torque as the 1G-(G)EU engine but a lot less in weight (almost equal to the 1G-GEU including its gearbox!). Now where can I get one of these babies swapped into my Carina? :P

Count the Celica XX-es!

February 11, 2012 in count

I guess parking your Celica XX (Celica Supra Mk II outside Japan) at the JCCA New Year Meeting doesn’t really make you feel you are driving a unique car…
Count the Celica XX-es
Even worse: they all look the same!
Can you count how many are lined up here?

WTF: Celica got a bad nosejob!

January 10, 2012 in WTF

I know it is a photoshop, but it is a very scary photoshop: a two door Celica coupe mated with a Celica XX (a.k.a. Celica Supra) nose!
Bad nosejob Celica XX TA63
I know the Celica XX is actually a lengthened three door Celica hatchback but somehow that looks totally right and this two door looks totally wrong.
