    • Can say there's a noticeable improvement how it drives. Goes to show how much a bottleneck can hold back & negate other exhaust mods.  Regarding drone, well my definition of drone is vibration in the cabin at certain rpms/load. This car has a boomy sound now, but nothing extreme.  With the rear section done, and rezzie deleted, I would bet theres nearly a 10kw increase over stock, it honestly feels so much more lively at full throttle, and is so much more effortless at medium throttle around town. 
    • I think it was around 2k for the motor, a few hundred for struts and the rest on labour. If I didn't have warranty, I wouldn't have bothered.  I checked the receipt and it didn't show the cost of just the motor.  https://parts.toyota.com/p/Toyota_2009_Highlander/Tailgate-Pull-Down-Motor/69353984/8500709005.html shows it as 1500usd which is about 1900aud..
    • Recently just purchased a 1989 Toyota Camry Wagon. Looks as though I need to replace swaybar for road worthy. There's a few on ebay, are the swaybars for sedans the same used on the wagons?  Any info is greatly appreciated. Cheers
    • You know I sort of expected my new Toyota supra to run for a bit longer than 12 weeks before it became undriveable ?? Well I guess it is a BMW although not made by BMW but by a company called Magna Steyr in Graz Austria who build cars for BMW. First problem was that while waiting to turn into a petrol station at Tin Can Bay the car lost all ability to select a drive mode so I sat there in pouring rain with my hazard lights on wondering  "what next". After about 5 minutes the drive selector came back to life. Then I could not lock the car by touching the door handle but only by using the key remote. Then next time I came to the car no instrument console lights and no heads up display. They both came back the next time I used the car.  I wrote to the guy who was responsible for building my car (the Toyota Supra Production Manager at Magner Steyr in Austria but no response as yet) although in copying Toyota into my mail to Magna Steyr Toyota did come back to me quickly. Next trip in the car will be to Hinterland Toyota at Robina to se if they can sort the problem out. Apart from the fact that the car does not work I absolutely love the creature. What a driving experience and what a difference when I drive our other car, an Aurion Presara which has run for 12.5 years without breaking down, now that is Toyota quality. Have any other Supra owners had problems with their cars ??  
    • Excellent that you have achieved the sound that you have wanted. Nothing unusual for me to be skeptical so always nice to be proven wrong again. I was certainly expecting more drone with the removal of the resonator. Looks like the recently replaced rear resonators/mufflers are able to deal with/eliminate the expected extra drone.  Interested to read a follow up on whether you have noticed any change with more torque at lower rpm or in the higher rpm range.
