malibuguy your threads are an inspiration, I have been reading a TON of GRM threads lately (work is slower then traffic in a Georgia snowstorm) and finally got up the gumption to make myself a profile so I can finally tell people how cool their crap boxes are. I have a buddy with a 2 door 5 spd Tercel that I will definitely be sending these build links to. These make me look at my sisters '96 that's rotting in my parents back yard with a renewed interest.  Keep up the great work and I cant wait to see where these go from here.

I appreciate it dude.  This car has really blossomed this year and I have a lot of plans for it next year.  Floyd, my pink tercel is nearly road ready again, so that is very exciting (for me at least) and I will keep posting about all of them.  I have a hot motor lined up for the 4dr Tercel lurking in my garage, but that is not a priority project atm.

These cars in general fly under the radar, plus there is a lot of autozone tuner variants that keep the mere suggestion of one a joke to most people.

If your sisters 96 aint rotten, get it back on the road!

Had an opportunity to get the bastards together 

 

Also installed some new shifter bearings that replace the rubber bushings.

Awesome thread. I had a 4th-gen with a 4-speed manual back in high school (~2006). Still kick myself for selling it. 

Once put 4 new tires on it for about $110.

New clutch from Action to hopefully handle the abuse.  The ebay clutch started slipping after boost exceeded 5psi.

Got a new friction for my old Aasco aluminum flywheel (from an old build) and then had it balanced with the new Action plate. 

Put the clutch in this morning along with a new boost gauge from the home land.
