    • The exhaust shouldn't really be an issue, you should be able to get any muffler and simply do an axle back system. Magnaflow are one of the best muffler brands around yes while they do cost a lot, I've heard nothing but great feedback in terms of quality and sound. If you don't want something too loud an axle back will give some noise but it depends on what style muffler you get. If you get something like a cannon style muffler without the silencer it will be much louder. Depending on what your end goal is, a good set of 16" wheels fit nicely on our cars. You can go as wide as 7" without the need to roll/lip the rear guards and 8" will fit all round but requires the guards to be rolled/lipped in the rear to avoid serious scrubbing.  
    • Hi Tony & Tony? My 2021 Landcruiser Prado Kakadu has the exact same symptoms. The vehicle has only done 2600km from new and only 500km since it was last serviced by Oldmac Toyota at Cleveland. Strangely it has only been  noticeable since the last service, which is very coincidental? Further and in regard to the last service I checked under the bonnet looking for a possible loose connection or something not securely fastened. My only finding was that the oil filler cap had been tightened/loosend by force, enough force to damage the top finger turning tab (burred from what appears to be some sort of tool. The oil filler cap was so tight I  couldn't budge it using both hands. I eventually got it off by using a rag and shifting spanner and found the seal on the under side of the cap was bone dry. I lubed the seal with a drop of oil and it screwed and unscrewed perfectly. Who are these people servicing your $100k motor vehicle? Have they not been trained? I then checked the tyre pressures because the stutter was very unusual and there may have been a remote correlation. Well to my surprise the tyre pressures were out the window, what the? it had only recently been serviced? Pressures were front left 42psi, front right 39psi, rear left 41psi and rear right 41psi. Toyota's recommended pressures are 29psi both front and rear. What is really happening to my prized $100k vehicle in this service department? These findings raise so may questions. So as you would expect I'm now extremely reluctant to have any of these guys open the door let alone lift the bonnet to start tampering with any sensors and electronics. My gut feeling is possibly a faulty sensor or something fuel related as it appears to be more noticeable when you gently accelerate through a roundabout or corner. Sadly it's not an obvious enough problem to activate any warning lights. Really not sure where to go to from here?
    • Can't find build month anywhere on My 2023 Rav4 only Vin.
    • Just thought I'd ask. Are the Tensioner pulley and Idler pulley the exact same thing ? I see a reference for the idler pulley as being referred to as "Pulley 2" on both hydraulically assisted steer and non assisted. Would the tensioner pulley then be "Pulley 1" ?? I do know that previous models to the 50 series had two idler pulleys and one tensioner pulley. The 50 series did away with the power steering pump so it has one less idler pulley.  
    • Hi all, for the Toyota Allex (2004, 1.8l, 1zz-fe), does anyone know which sport exhaust might fit? Just looking to upgrade that for now, and my budget is under $1000. I’m not looking for anything loud in particular.  I’ve seen one on magnaflow for the corolla (2003-2006), but my passenger side is on the left and the muffler is on the right….. would appreciate any input/help.   off topic: could you guys please tell me what you think would be the best rims/wheel sizes I should get for my car?
