    I spotted this in the services on the M40 a few weeks ago. Looked into it and found a video online with more info... see below

    Very cool!

    Love it, great choice for an understated swap! :coolgleam:

    No sure the front mounted oil cooler was really necessary though but that's all taste....

    Love that car. It’s usually at Japfest on the Jap Performance Parts stand, so may well be at Donington tomorrow.

    The Beams swap is a good option for the TA and RA Celicas. There are kits available - since that car was done - that make it an easier proposition. No need to replace the whole tunnel for example.

    Great car but the exhaust and oil cooler look vulgar imo.

    There’s an old video on YouTube of the car being tested on the industrial estate where JPP is, all stripped down with bits missing everywhere. Fun to watch.

    In fact, I’m pretty sure there’s a much older video of the car during its previous life in Japan, with its 2T-G 1.6L engine. It was quite distinctive with different wheels front and back; it matched the before pictures that JPP posted on their site.
