  1. UPDATE BECAUSE SATURDAYS ARE FOR THE BOYS Most recent mod: Recaro SR3's in Leather with Red stitching on Bride Rails! Protected by Bowden's Detailing line for leather care. Also put in a fire extinguisher for those track days down to maccas, was a really clean install and ill see if i can get a photo soon :) Tyre letters were installed a few weeks back but heres a close up shot of them anyway! Cheers love you all
  2. UPDATE FOR THE BOYS So past few weeks, I've done a few things, -New Double Halo Angel eyes, change to a bright orange when indicating aswell ,looks **** awesome IMO - Bumper quick releases because my clips were ruined -The Lowdown Limited edition (personal preference) -Pair of Hellatones mounted behind grill -Fully sik Yokohama Sportivo tyre lettering -Slimline tinted weathersheilds -DBA T2 Slotted Rotors (not sure if i've mentioned this in the past) -HID's replaced with LED globes all around - Smoked side indicators Also have a suprise coming in the week, very excited to say the least as besides wheels i don't have much else i would like to do (realistically) until i get another car. One day i'll boost this car, i do plan on keeping it for a long time and its not something i'm looking at selling. I was meant to be doing two track days in the past few weeks, first one was cancelled and the second one was boycotted due to a late notice (**** night before) price increase of over 200% for one day. Here's my favourite photos of how the car's sitting right now, cheers guys and i will update when my MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD upgrade is here next week
  3. Lift issue? No lift at 6000rpm

    Check lift bolts, is often the cause for this issue. Worst comes to worst could be a ****** fuel pump or a reset of the ecu. Do the small things first man, few mechanics have knowledge of the 2zzge, let alone diagnosing why lift isn't engaging. I'd 100% replace the liftbolts though.
  4. This is a long term project for me, and one day i plan on building and boosting it. Long time away though. I get tempted to sell it but i honestly love it, theres nothing else around like it and everything done is done by me, making it an extremely personal build. Could be wrong but isn't yours for sale dude? Please don't sell it i need more tivo mates hahaha. Fuel economy is the same atm dude,haven't been worried about it to be honest so it's running as normal as far as i can tell. I'll try find someone soon enough man. And i didn't grab a dyno sheet man, i was mostly looking for torque power figures.
  5. Gains so far are fantastic man, don't expect a stupid amount of power straight up but it made a difference, To be honest, it's honestly up to you if you think its worth it. If you track your car or enjoy a spirited drive i couldn't recommend it more. It is an absolute **** around (for me anyway) to have it put in, find someone who can and has done it before. i can't stress that enough.
  6. Well a long overdue update is in order i'd say. I have had a very expensive past month or so with such being done; >V-manage ecu Tuned and fitted, this was an absolute **** around to do and all though it's fantastic, find someone who knows what they're doing as the tuner's i went to had no idea what they were doing pretty much. >Brand new Exedy HD clutch and Xtreme Performance Lightweight Flywheel >Brand new DBA Slotted T2 rotors both Front and Rears >A NEW GEARBOX Gearbox went on the drive home after the tune, was stupidly dissapointed as i had already had a terrible day dealing with the tuner joint messing me around with their prices and claims of how poorly the ecu fitting had gone. Found a new gearbox within a week with only 115kms on it from an 05. It's all fitted now and it's running perfect so i can't be too dissapointed. I'll put some photo's up soon as i've done a few aesthetic changes, i look foward to putting them up! Heres how it was sitting prior to the gearbox deleting itself.
  7. Happy for you man, if you get the chance let me know on FB how much you got the rebuild for, would be keen on one day getting my gearbox done aswell just for prevention.
  8. Yeah i've got a few scrapes on the side skirt thanks to the previous owner, isn't took bad though so i'm not worried hey. Front scrapes underneath the lip is pretty normal tbh, luckily i've got a new one ready to go on after a nice coat of paint and polish. Find a height that suits you best i suppose, i'm 80mm off the ground and its a reasonable height tbh and i wouldn't go any lower.
  9. >raising the car to a more suitable height mate if you can get over curbs whats the point in existing ;)
  10. Xoom's Turbo 2ZZ Sportivo

    Thats so maaaaad!
  11. I don't drive like a gimp really, i've dealt with bad gears and rev match a fair bit so i do my best to prevent it If you're dropping your car into second @ 90kms and **** then eventually you're gonna have issues, if im having a bit of fun ill drop from sixth to third because on freeways that's straight into lift and alot of fun to surprise people. It's not doing harm and i wouldn't do it unless i knew it was fine. At the end of the day it's all for fun and i drive it the way it's meant to be driven. It's so good man!
  12. Exedy HD Extreme Lightened Flywheel Greddy V-Manage piggyback ecu, gonna be mad ;) Anddddddddd a recent photo (2 months old) but a personal favourite of mine. I have got rid of the lowdown banner and replaced it with my own glossblack banner with a few neat stickers, will be putting photos up no doubt soon.
  13. Thought I'd make an update with the few mods I've done in the last week and will be doing over the next month or so! i have installed the extended pushrod for the clutch, a TWM short shifter and am now chasing a weighted knob! Any reccomendations would be appreciated ! i also installed a set of BC racings coilovers which I got for a fantastic price, could not believe the change in the cars handling. Easily the best upgrade I've done for the car. Greddy V-Manage ecu has arrived and will be installed in the car hopefully by the end of this week, just when I have time to do it! I have a new clutch for no reason but I desire an upgrade, chose the Exedy Heavy duty clutch with the Xtreme lightened flywheel. In the future I'd love to build the engine and the gearbox, but this is quite a time away I believe. hope everyone is doing well and modding hard ;) thought it was worth a note I had a pricey mechanic trip, had both front driveshafts replaced with new hubs and bearings to go aswell!
  14. Sorry to hear man, i had the same **** for my third gear. Look forward to your mad modz
