Howdy all...

Howdy fellas (and gals),

I scored a super deal on a metallic black, 2008, 6 speed, Corolla Ascent to use as a daily driver, instead of my petrol 80s Landcruiser since a career change. In typical toyota style, they've made a good looking and well styled car for the price, not to mention it goes pretty hard - 7000RPM+ and gives excellent economy (600+ km per tank).

It's still a stocker at the moment but I came to the realisation a few days ago that's not going to be the case for long - especially since I found this site!

It will never be an extreme make over, just the usual like exhaust, tint, wheels and unichip to give it a bit of individualism and more go.

While my Landcruiser will still suck most of my funds (currently fitting a 3540 GT and W/A IC), you guys have definately shown me the Corolla has some good potential.

There doesn't seem to be much info on the 2ZR-FE here (excuse my ignorance) but I will add my own and post pics shortly.

It's also great to see so many Corolla fans on the Northern Beaches Sydney too - I look forward to seeing you around.

Keep it on its wheels,

Nath

Welcome mate. I'm sure if you look around you'll find alot of info. Just that not many people have done serious mods to their cars yet :)

I know this thread is useless without pics but they'll be up shortly.

Dropped the Corolla off for the exhaust system today. Custom extractors with a high flow cat and muffler, 2.25in straight through.

I wanted to get it dyno'd before fitting but ran out of time so I'll get it done after. Hopefully someone else has dyno'd a stocker for comparison. Regardless of what the dyno says, the real test will be how it is to drive and I've been promisied good results.

Toyota have changed the AFM making a CAI difficult but it looks like the factory induction system is much improved. I may just run a KnN without oil (or a very light coating) and leave it at that...

Ive also done the fibreglass mould for the custom sub box in the rear quater of the boot. Should be good for about 35L so I can run a decent size sub without having it take up any room.

I will post pics of the original and new exhaust system and sub box shortly.

Cheers,

Nath
