Is that Japanese bumper? Or an option for the US cars?

It was a bumper offered on all worldwide Air to Water intercooled Celicas. The US never got the air to water intercooler, so we never got the bumper or hood that went with it. Every other country did though, lol.

I can always accept weight if it is in the right areas (drivetrain, engine, suspension, or braking system). I'm fine with some weight if I never have to worry about anything that steers, propels, or stops the car breaking. Unfortunately, these days they put weight in stupid areas that is actually counter-productive to my intentions IE makes all of the aforementioned systems less reliable.

I picked up a worn out FWD version for dd. What a piece of ****, oh well it's a 1400 car after all. The 5s-fe is all low end and just dies off at 4k rpm. I'm sure the turbo & AWD would feel 10x better. The altrac has good look too.

Yeah, the AWD turbo cars are A LOT better than the base models, lol. However, using the lower end parts from a 5sfe makes for a nice stroker setup for the 3SGTE

wife had a '89 celica when i met her. lots of fun times in it. imho has the best climate control of any car we've had since. i'd keep it the way it is. summer track car, winter track car, winter commuter all in one.

I always liked the Altrac. I guess the weight is the reason it never made more of an impact.
