Thanks for the words fellas! I've laid low on the mods n' madness for a few months after the bellhousing took the beating, but I went ahead and put down the money for a new bellhousing, skid plates, and a little something else...



Soon as the tranny is repaired and mounted back up and the car is back on the road, work begins on the turbo. Building a mostly-custom setup that will agree with my snorkel and front end. Gonna have a subie-inspired hood scoop for the intercooler. Will post more pics tonight!

Not even going into trying to do it with a unibody. Good luck dude!
Skid plates are fabricated and going in as soon as I get the tranny put back together...

...and then I'll just break something else. :lalala

Wtf this thing is nuts lol. As much as I would never even come close to wanting to do this I have to say I appreciate the originality. And props for a purpose built car.

In fact i came to this thread because I just saw the mad max 2 again and by curiosity searched google for "scion tc mad max" and you car came up lol... I've always thought that the scion TC would make for a great post apocalyptic car, you have made reality of my dream

Anyway keep up the good work!

Btw... Changing the rear glass to to the metal and hatch configuration is pure genius! It is something that I might copy in a few years down the road!!! Just awesome!

Trying out a new two-tone paint job. Also added saddlebags and redid the exhaust.

This car is so amazing. I love it! I remember seeing this online years ago and to see how far it's progressed is just inspiring. Hats off to you Sir. Would love to see more pics or even video's of it with the Turbo.

Hey guys! Thanks for the kind words. Not very active on forums anymore but I thought I'd make the rounds and post an update. Here's a photo gallery with info and some semblance of a parts list as requested.

Hope everyone's scions are running well. Rock on!
