***Toyota/Lexus Tech***

In my attempt to make the technical aspect of this site better, I have created a Toyota Tech Section for all of the toyota gurus to spread the wealth. Here you can create DIYS, HOW TO's, and INSTALLS. In doing this I only have a few requests.
1. Write all contributions in a easy to read manner. Slang and abbreviations wont help.

2. At the end of the techincal post, write "keywords: (keywords here)". this will help users be able to find what they need when searching.

3.If you arent positive what you are talking about then let the public know that. Say:"i think this is right but I am not sure" so they know that following your steps may not be the absolute correct way.

4. Title the contribution by what you are going to explain.

5. CONTRIBUTE! In order for this to work I need YOU, the members, to take this under your wing and make it what it needs to be
i think subwrxkid is thinking cleanneon is copying him. if he was it would be at a shop by now.

Repair Manual 1 - 14.19MB
Repair Manual 2 - 19.5 MB
Wire Diagrams 3 - 8.36 MB

and also, (thanks to Lagos) here is a link the 3SGTE power primer

- 94 Integra "Panda" GSR/LS (crashed to finished in < 30 days)
- 96 Integra (Totaled 5/28/2011)
- 91 MR2 Turbo (SOLD)
- 91 MR2 n/a (SOLD)

Jdmwill. I've got an 97' celica st with a 1.8. I got it for $300 because of some body damage but it had only 65xxx miles on it. Only thing, auto trans. An insight I can do with it performance wise? Because I'm debating on selling it and getting something with a little more potential. I dint see many 6th gen celiac around though.

How about a sticky of a Eaton Supercharger Install to a Toyota 1FZ-FE?
Is that the kind of stuff you want? I could post up my install pics.
