Hi 3TC Garage

Post by Dustparticle » Mon Apr 29, 2019 2:53 pm

Hello from Austin Texas. Just bought a 78 Corrola TE51 Liftback Deluxe for me and my buddy to work on together.
She's got a 2TC with ~57k miles and A40 3-speed auto.
Short term plan is to keep it as stock as possible but modernize it to be a reliable daily driver: Holley Sniper EFI kit, electric fan, electronic ignition, fix AC, etc.
Long term plan: mild street cam, maybe better suspensions and a 4-speed/OD down the road.
Here's what we've gotten so far: https://youtu.be/y2x25ga1MSg

Thx AE25, we will work on it more this weekend if the weather is cooperating.
We did some sizing 2 weeks ago. The plan is to have the Holley Sniper EFI sit on a machined 3TC intake with adapter plate from BRD. O2 sensor will go on a PaceSetter 4-1 exhaust header. Guess I'm the lucky one who got a A40 transmission with square bell housing bottom so we need to shave the edge out for the header to fit.
Stay tuned!
