Celica GTS vs. Prelude
Celica GTS and Prelude go at it, they were both basically stock. They just
had an intake, the celica has a TRD Exhaust thats aboout it.

Why I love a V8
Torque is so much fun. To put this in perspective let me give you some horsepower numbers.
At 3000rpm I am only making about 165whp. and at 4000rpm I am making about
about 235whp. Not a big amount of horsepower. But at those
same RPM's my V8 is making 290 tq and at 4000rpm I am making my peak tq of
310. So while my hp is down my car still accelerates fairly briskly. God I
love a V8.
1ZZFE Oil Consumption Fix How-To 8th Gen VVTi Corolla +similar
A video of my first ever attempt at and personal adventure of performing
the piston repair used to halt excessive oil consumption on the 8th
generation Corolla with VVTi and similar 1zzfe engines. The video is much
too detailed and too long -- sorry about that! See
il-consumption-fix.html for more information about the fix.
Includes additional gasket changes, broken connector replacement, and the
reuse of copper crush washers.
I am not a mechanic. If this video helps you know what you will be getting
into if you decide to do this repair, then, great! Please don't take
anything in this video as the gospel truth. Always refer to your service
manual and seek the advice of someone who actually knows what they are
UPDATE: Just want to let everyone know that after 2,000 miles the car is
running great! There is zero oil consumption, and with the new injectors
and seals the car feels like it is brand new. I'm sorry for all the
comments that I didn't reply to -- I guess YouTube has a time limit for
replies, and I had no idea this had taken off so strongly. After I posted
the video there were a handful of views and then nothing for months. I
came back and was shocked to see how many views there had been. Anyway,
I'm super stoked that the video has helped some people out.
I had a few people ask me where I got the service manual. I got it from
the TIS (Technical Information System) website, the official Toyota
technical support site at http://techinfo.toyota.com -- they offer 2 day
access passes for $15. I just printed the pages I needed for the repair to
a PDF so I could use my iPad under the car.
