    My 85 RA64 Celica Turbo (Hatch). This is a highly modified street car that has seen a lot of time, money, & care put into it.
    The entire vehicle is composed of high quality, functional parts, with excellent fit, finish, installation & purpose. Many of these components have been custom fabricated for ideal fit/finish + integration. I am only selling to move onto a new chassis. This is not a hack-job, junk yard turbo set up. This is truly a "complete package", including fully built / forged motor (right down to custom oil squirters), SDS full stand-alone engine management, beautiful equal length tubular exhaust manifold, massive Spearco intercooler core with proper shrouding (custom built out of light weight aluminum), custom hammer-finished 2.5" mandrel bent boost piping, full 304 Stainless Steel 3" turbo-back exhaust system (3" mandrel bent downpipe, 3" straight pipe with axle-back dump), 7.5" Supra LSD-equipped rear end + rear disk brake assemblies, Custom 1-piece light weight drive shaft, 16x8J ARE (manufactured by Enkei, Made in Japan) 2 piece meshies (polished lips, silver faces) wrapped in 245/45/R16 Sumitomo HTRZ II's, etc.

    Absolute blast to drive. Sounds unbelievable at idle, & better yet under WOT load. Pulls very, very hard, has no problem throwing out the rear, lighting up tires, & getting you into trouble.

    Ran a 12.9 second 1/4 mile time @ 111 MPH @ 10 PSI.

    For most of my ownership, it's been run off the wastegate spring (7 PSI). Currently tuned running 12 PSI.

    This is one beautiful old school Celica. Very well done, a lot of subtle to the eye but significant to the ride upgrades. Kudos to you or whomever did the work on this.

    Was this for sale on here before? It seems familiar.

    I submitted it. I was just browsing around and I thought this car would be a good candidate for BAT. Figured a bit more exposure couldn't hurt, didn't think it'd sell that quick though!

    Congrats on the sale(provided it works out)
    Seriously....just go away....
