    OK, well, I lowered it last night... Before:

    Now:

    I also removed the bumpers- saved 80 lbs. and cleaned up the lines a bit. Yeah, looks crappy now, but picture it with the holes filled and all one color.

    I also gutted the dash completely. EVERYTHING is gone from inside it, 'cept for the speedo, which now reads up to 145 MPH instead of 100.

    Before speedo:

    Now:

    And a few more shots:

    Now, depsite being about 3" lower than stock, the camber is remarkably under control. Note the camera angle and how the line of the garge door is parallel to the top of the picture.

    Two fingers tiiiite.

    Now, some of you have asked how much room is in the engine bay, and I keep telling you that there's hardly any room. Well, here's a pic... the prybar is 24" long as a reference:

    that thing is going to be pimp-matic.

    I'm not sure what that means, but when it's done, it's going to be the definition of pimp-matic.

    Most likely: http://thenew.gamesbbs.com/~vassago/pictures/celica and http://thenew.gamesbbs.com/~vassago/pictures/neworegon

    As for shaving 'n shit... nah. Other than filling the holes from where the bumpers bolted up and adding an airdamn to the front and cleaning that up a bit, I'm not going to shave anything. The chrome door handles, headlight garnish, and window trim adds character, I think.

    Engine plans- I found a company that will produce forged pistons and rods to any spec- you just have to send them an OEM piston and rod- for $950, shipped. I'll also be adding a few block guards or staking the block. I'm going to leave it at 1237ccs, port the head, convert to fuel injection, fabricate an intake manifold, and boost it to around 15 PSI or so. I'd like to see 200 HP at the wheels. My goal with the car is to drive it on the street and beat up on Porsches and Ferraris during open track days.

    How it was lowered... hehe... I'm not going to say, but think, no cost, not drivable, more ghetto than you'd expect from me.

    Negatory on the lowering method, and as for the D series... again... look at how small the engine bay is. If I dropped a D series in there, the front of the valve cover would be sticking out from under the front of the hood, and the header would stick out past where the bumper used to be. D series doesn't fit.

    Again- I'll be using the original 1237cc EW3 engine and four speed manual tranny, built up, and boosted.

    I'm going to lower it the right way, yes. Of course.

    Color is going to be red because... the guy whom I got it from has a 4 year old daughter that was emotionally attached to the car. She cried seeing us put it on the dolly. I told her that I'll paint it whatever color she wanted and she said red. Red it is.

    Total cost... dunno yet. Maybe around $6500- $7500 not including the car.

    No, I'm not building up the tranny. Stock tranny rocks. 4.985 FD!

    Loco, did you say your building the tranny, or did I misunderstand? I was just interested in how your going to do it if you are.
