If you want to get a BOSS adapter kit, if you can be bothered be sure to ask for a 'collapsible' one, you don't really want to know what happens when you have an accident and you have one of the older design ones. Sure, they'll hold together, but they may also cost you your chest??? I think mine cost about $90.

I was wondering, what sort of oil and oil filters do you guys use for your cars? I'm a sucker for big brands, so i've insisted on using Mobil 1 as oil and at the moment tryng to get hold of K&N oil filter. Thoughts?? Question

Yeah Mobil 1 would be best as long as it doesnt burn the oil too quickly, what engine do you have, 3sge?, as for oil filters i have never tried a k&n one the usual repco and valvoline filters are fine as long as they meet aus standards( whats a k&n oil filter worth?), if your after performance on the dyno, change your fuel filter and spark plugs if they havnt been changed for about a year. Also some octane booster like nulon pro streangth wouldnt hurt with some mobil synergy 8000 or Vortex Gold Very Happy.

Any St162's going on the dyno?

Rob I reckon if we turbo you motor run say 20psi boost through it and you only start it to run the dyno, i reckon you could take Draza Laughing Laughing althought that would unfortunatly leave you without a car Sad Sad but at least that would make time to go ST165 Very Happy Very Happy

Can we Turbo Robs motor in 11 Days? Before DD9[ 9 vote(s) ]
1.Yes if we do a really dodgy job 8 / 89%
2.Not a chance in hell 0 / 0%
3.Yes with a proper job 1 / 11%

So whats the verdict???

Does Rob have a chance to Take Draza's Challenge?

alright Rob it looks like we better get started on your *cough* turbo conversion *cough* Up To Something we don't have long so all ounces of dodgyness will be required to half complete this task, and we don't have alot of money so it will mostly rely on tape (masking, electrical, and duct), what we can find at the tip, and any donations.

The votes look like they are rolling in.

can't tell for sure, but I had a mate once we used the stopwatch, I got like 7.1, close but not 100% accurate, but remember mines from an ST165 which is said to be 7.9, so yeah a tad better. It all depends if you can lay the power down without wheelspin, thats the hardest part when you have that much torque.

and probably close cause at Dubbo I got as my sig say 9.92 1/8th which I was pulling a trap speed of 130km/hr (hehe isn't that what the 3sge ST162 does over a quater Evil or Very Mad )

7.9 from a standard ST165? I can't wait to test that out...doesn't seem too optimistic either. I'd be glad to get somewhere in the mid 8 range from such an old turbo 4WD car.

15.84 is pretty bloody quick! A stock ST165 probably does about 15 flat (possibly high 14s).

No way would a stock ST162 get 15.6 - but then again, I always play figures down so that's typical.

(edit)
I'm a dumbass - wiso said ST165 - that's more like it Smile
(/edit)

I'm hoping to get 3" exhaust plus blow off valve (plumb back) for my GT4 - will do more mods when credit card is paid off. Btw - I might be out and about in the eastern states if I qualify for the national TKD championship so I'll let you guys know so we can cruise Smile

Yeah I still need to call him, he's name is George, knows a shitload about st162s, is he still sellin it for 10G because for anyone thats interested, it's a damn good deal!!!

By the way seeming I haven't joined this thread for a while(sorry guys Sad ) but are WRXs the same stud pattern as the ST model, its just a quicky because a guy came through today and said he loved my rims, but he wanted 18s, i wanted to know seeming there wasn't much response to my Q in the Tech section (i probably haven't earnt enough RESPECT), but if so, this would make the brake upgrade REALLY worthwhile, WRX rotors and calipers with a bit of modification would be a great asset.
If anyone has any suggestions, then they earn a massive smiley.
Thanks please?!

I'm pretty sure they are both 5x100, but I don't know if the offset is the same, anyone clear that up? I'd have a look at my dad's wrx if it were here right now, maybe later today. Currently he's having his second gearbox replaced (it's stock and he doesn't even thrash it, come on the guy's 50 something!)...those WRX gearboxes either suck or he's got two duds in a row.

I don't know if you can interchange the brakes between the two but I guess it's worth a look. GT4 brakes fit on much easier and are cheap if you can come across some...although they are alot heavier and not as effective.

Yeah ST has 4x114.3 or something? Whereas the SX has 5x100 - and I'm *think* the WRX is 5x100, I'll look later today!

I forgive you Wink lol

dude the ST model is a 4x????? pattern, I won't commit to whether it was 114.3 or 100 as I am not sure, the SX is 5x100 with a 37 offset or so

WRX wheels ARE 5x100 but you have to add spacers to the back I think?

Re: ST162 dedicated thread Fri, 25 June 2004 01:50 Go to previous messageGo to next message
The SX bolt pattern is definitely 5x100 as people have been saying, the standard offset is +39mm.

I believe the offset of the WRX rims (both 16" and 17") is +53mm. (But I will stand corrected if someone finds out for sure.) So this means they will still bolt up, but the centreline of the rim will be 14mm further inward than before. (This is quite noticable when WRX rims are fitted to Celicas, especially on the rear wheels.) Moving the centreline inwards as a result of the increased offset will narrow your track width as well. You'd have to check the legalities of that - here in QLD you are allowed to increase your track by up to 26mm, but not decrease it.

And if the WRX rim is wider than your originals, the inside face of the tyre will move inwards even further again. So you're more likely to have the inside of the tyre rub on the suspension, depending on the amount of clearance you have there now. The solution of course is to use spacers to bring them back out again, but these are illlegal in QLD as well......but may be OK in other states.

At least that's my understanding of it.

-Matt

OKAY I just read this today, and it has to be my GAYEST POST EVER,
1.The whole respect thing was really a joke, I really wasnt being serious, it was more of a payout to myself in a way.
2.Also sorry once again for WRX thing there, for some strange reason I thought they were 4 stud *slaps forehead*
3.And the whole massive smiley thing is just plain GHEY
4.I just returned from the pub last night, and was kinda tipsy *falls onto forehead*

Fuck! I feel like a total dickhead, I've let down this whole st162 dedicated thread. *slap,slap,slap what was I thinking*
Thanks everyone for pointing it out though.

Anyway does anyone have any ideas for my brakes, its kinda important, i wish I had a SX because things would be so much easier, ohhh well
Thanks & Sorry once again

Hrm - I'd be getting rid o' those rear drums for starters (yes I know drums can actually brake better than discs, but they get hot quickly)...I imagine it's a case of swapping the whole hub assembly from an SX over...

As for the fronts, err, dunno - maybe similar thing ??? Smile

You may be able to fit on even later model celica hubs + calipers etc like the 185 or 205? Anyone know more about that?

funny how none of you know this ST is 4x100 39 offset Wink
SX is 5x100 39 offset

but these can also often be 38 offset just aswell

yes WRX is 5x100 45 offest



ST185 & ST184 front hubs will mostprobably fit (they are very similar to 16* hubs), ST205's no chance, the drive shafts won't fit (205 hubs are monstorus)

Wellllll? I'm surprised no one went with the whole "don't be so hard on yourself" thing, ohhh well maybe i can get some sympathy elsewhere. Ive obviously embarrassed the whole st162 community on ToyMods (just kidding, i hope). Very Happy

Anyhow while I'm on the topic of being a dickhead, I'll drop in this link to my NO RESPECT question regarding my brakes, so some of you might understand what I maybe looking for. The thought of using brakes from another car are now go through my head.

Ey all,

I have a tiny bubble in the paint on my sunroof and I want to have it repaired. I was wondering how hard it is to take the sun roof off? If anyone knows how to do it, can you please give me some instructions?

To have it resprayed I was quoted $100 but he said he dident know how long it would take to get the sunroof out, so if I could do it I could save some cash.

Thanx for any help in advance.

i might be trying if the st185 hubs fit the st162 soon cause i think i've fucked a wheels bearing and be good to use newer hubs, ball joint and bearing and the proper stone disk shield the the little cooling duct.

Hey Nezza you've just finished a GTE conversion right? I think Keyroo dropped your name a while back at a cruise, but I couldn't really find you anyhow howd the whole conversion go or is it still going?
By the way you have a SX model 162 right? So yeah you'll most definately benefit from using the 185 hubs, but there might be some modification involved, not much though.

sik sx: You should have this in your manual, but if you don't have one, then get ONE! but I recommend 10W-40, though I tend to use lighter oils, you might even have to use a heavier one seeming you live in a hotter climate.

Congrats on the 3S-GTE nezza I hadn't even noticed... Smile You need more fanfare or something in that regard.

Umm - sik_sx you can probably get away with 10-40 or thereabouts, I hope that you didn't use synthetics whilst running the engine in!

As stated previously in this thread, stock exhaust is not that good! A set of 4-2-1 extractors will serve you well, and a set of 4-1 probably won't make much difference compared to the 4-2-1 until you get to higher flow such as cams, valves, head porting.

I thought the beams put out more than 200ps (that's around 147kW) and 21 kg/m (206Nm). Sounds a bit low really Sad It'd be fairly easy (although expensive) to build a 3S-GE without VVT-i that would have more power than that.

all this talk about beams made me think that they were great, but they are just the next series of engine.

Well, it's still a damn good engine regardless. 150ish kW from a 2.0 litre isn't all too common, unless it's a Honda Smile

the beams in the rs200's have another 10hp

but it's just the all motor thing. and i think they are all alloy? and much lighter then an old 3sge but don't quote me on that I'm not sure.

Edit: I don't know how but I'm sure my pull apart book does, will post instructions tomorrow if no one has answered your question doobs

doobs -> There's nothing about the sunroof in the haynes (read : shit) manual that I've got, so if anyone has a gregory's or other manual maybe they'll have details...but it shouldn't be so hard - just grab a bunch of tools and start trying to remove it!

It's always more satisfying to discover these things on your own Smile

sunroof = WAY easy to take out

first, take off the carpet stuff on the bottom, I think it clips off/on...

and then you undo like 4 or 6 little nuts *heehee* and it comes out!

it has to be shut.. Wink
