Long time no update, for those who don't know my car, have a look at page one for summary..

A few updates

1. Fog light installed, have to buy geniue bracket from Toyota for 100, and the fog light also cost 100 as well

2. Toyota UK side skirt in http://www.burrowstoyotaparts.co.uk/c.do?category=54&page=1 , got it for 350 delivered unpainted

3. Wiechers Sport from Germany rear strut brace for 220 delivered, have to drill holes to mount

4. Front lip for 200 painted from Toyota.

5. Auris rear badge, very time consuming to do debadging in the absense of power plug and hair dryer

6. Rear tow hook

7. Levin style rear spoiler

I still like my Toyota wheels, make the car feel like stock top end model..and I got my white color wheels for track use anyways

I am not a camera man, so no quality photos

Stupid me, miss the sydney meet on saturday, I thought it is on sunday..

Anyway, want to share another picture after

1. Toyota Europe Side skirt

2. Rear Auris badge

3. Rear tow hook

4. Rear strut brace (see previous post)

I am very happy with my fuel consumption now, driving 100km/h speedometer speed on freeway, with an average about 5.6L per 100km, getting closer to hybrid

The euro side skirts look really good, much more streamline than the levin. comparing them i think levin ones are too bulky imo.

Doing the following.

Lighweight flywheel, stage 1 camshaft, valve spring, increase rpm from 6600rpm to >7000rpm using latest unichip, very likely to hit around 92kw on the wheels

Quaife LSD for EC60 gearbox, I need this as I have problems in exiting corner on the track

Parts supplied by https://www.monkeywrenchracing.com

Lighweight flywheel wont increase the dyno number much because it is on 4th gear, but 1st and 2nd gear will have significant increase in acceleration

Thanks Jeff. I have a kid now so don't want to change car. Today's car is getting too heavy, not fun on the track. I want to get a mini Cooper when my kid grows up., Something light and powerful. After putting a LSD,flywheel, camshaft, valve spring and increasing rev limit on my corolla, i The track day fun will come back. I estimate my 0-100 time would be around 7.2, so not bad at all..

Here is what I want.

Quaife LSD is installed, gearbox is reconditioned, few broken parts replaced

MWR lightweight flywheel is installed

Car has more acceleration in 1st, 2nd gear, it revs faster at standstill

NST pulley was removed due to cracked into 3 pieces 4 years ago

Next Mod

MWR Camsahft stage 1 and stiff valve springs, have found a shop to do it

WIll raise the rpm from 6400 to 7000rpm, estimate to increase peak power by 8% to approximately 94kw on the dyno, or 134kw on the flywheel, this is equivalent to 74kw per liter, 

Lightweight lithium battery, cost around $450, and will last much longer, weight <3kg. 

I can keep the car for another 7 years now. My odometer only reads 90000km now after 9 years, no engine oil consumption at all

Done a more thorough test with the flywheel and LSD. I am impressed. With my heavy 16 toyota factory wheel, rolling start from 1st gear will generate wheel spin all the way to second gear. This is not possible before. Second gear acceleration is more aggressive as well.

For LSD, car no longer accelerate into straight line in turning corner. It is very useful in track day

With my camshaft stage 1 installed later on, car is not slow compared to a 86, so I am happy to keep the car for a long while

 

Estimated 0-100 time now is around 7.3 seconds

Dyno today to prepare for camshaft install, what a suprise, 91.7KW, but in 5th gear. Last time reading was 86.8kw in 4th gear

I have only changed new engine oil, new flywheel, LSD and new pod filter. I don't know where the gain is coming from. It was raining in the morning and temperature is 16C

Car is confirmed to cut by fuel when over reving, so unichip i-driver is on its way

Now, I need to get the mechanic to fix the car for the front engine mount. Today discovered the engine mount is loose after replacing the clutch. Such a bad  job
