Great Condition 1988 JDM Toyota Celica GT-4 ST185-Running 500 BHP



A 5th generation 1988 T180 series Celica ST185 turbocharged all-wheel drive version with the legendary 3S-GTE Engine


This has been in a private collection for a number of years with little recent use. It has been well looked after and a huge sum of money has been spent on it


The car was subject to ongoing modification over a number of years, and includes:


Lightweight 17" OZ wheels (unmarked)

Carlos Sainz Front Bumper

Uprated high flow 255l/hr fuel pump

Turbo Boost gauge

Huge Tarrox 6-pot brakes with Kevlar pads

Blitz de-limiter (revs)

HKS Oil pressure gauge

Digital Race Technology LCD Dash Display

Motek M4 Pro Custom ECU

Large Front-Mount Intercooler

Large Bore Stainless Steel wrapped exhaust system with 5" tail pipe

Battery (new) re-located to boot

Lambda upgrade to provide data logging, advanced anti-lag tuning and launch control

Boot mounted Custom Toroidal turbo Water Cooler

Toad Alarm/Immobiliser with 2 x Remotes

  The engine was rebuilt  a number of years ago by a GT-4 specialist tuning company, Prestige Garage (GT4 Developments) Stafford  - I have been in touch with the original owner of this company, who tells me that costs were way in excess of £20,000 and include:

HKS Cams,

Garrett Turbo

Blueprinted Cylinder Head & Ports

Titanium Valve Caps and Colletts 

Titanium Conrods

Special £500 Sump from USA

Specialist Crank

Specialist Balanced Bearings

Custom Race Wiring Loom

Motek M4 Pro Custom ECU

The clutch was upgraded to a 4 x paddle Race Clutch and it has been balanced to the Crank as one assembly


He informed me that the car has been mapped to run a safe 500 BHP (tuned down from 600 BHP for reliability) It was also constructed for use with Nitrous injection


I have no way of verifying the internal components & cost listed above or the claimed power output - and the car is sold on that understanding, however the owner of GT4 Developments has stated he is happy to talk to the new owner of the car regarding the modifications, cost and the mapping carried out


I have just had the oil (racing spec.) & oil filter changed, along with a weeping core plug, and a new battery at a total cost of £450 - to bring the car back to its full glory I would also recommend a re-map and a cam belt change to be on the safe side - doing a little more work on the car could increase its value considerably


The paintwork is in fabulous condition (pictures shows water droplets -not blemishes!) with virtually no marks and being a Japanese Import the underside is extremely solid with just some surface rust that would benefit from being treated and painted - I have left it alone rather than paint it which could be seen as an attempt to hide structural rust   


Supplied with a history file including many invoices, tuning product catalogues, 10 old MOTs, V5 and current MOT until June 2020
