    Zr6 trd aurion DYNO

    Oooof, that's one sexy unit! Is there a noticeable whine when you give it the foot?

    Zr6 trd aurion DYNO

    Absolutely loving this thread, really keen to hear if the TVS1900 gives a bit more of that sexy supercharger whine over the TRD variant. Dumb question about the coilovers - you can get them without the car being lowered? I love the height my ZR6 sits at compared to my old TRD, and wouldn't mind upgrading the suspension to combat the occasional axle tramp so long as I don't lose any of that height

    Water in boot

    Hi all, Just wondering if anyone else has discovered water has somehow found its way into the boot, namely the spare tyre well. I'm going to remove all the boot lining and hose down the rear end at some point to see if I can spot where it came from, so mostly just curious. I was involved in a rear-ending a year & a half back, so it could be the panel beaters were just average with their overall work. Cheers!

    Toyota aurion moonroof stuck open

    I think the motor is behind the maplight (the light next to the roof controls), if you pop the light off and remove the motor you'll be able to manually slide the roof back, though I'm not sure how you'd go about getting it to pop back up to form the watertight seal, I'm just going by this thread:https://www.toyotanation.com/forum/103-camry-3rd-4th-gen-1992-1996-1997-2001-1st-gen-solara-1999-2003/358984-moonroof-stuck-open-2000-camry-xle-s-raining.html Hope you have a win
  6. This morning after getting to a jobsite, I was sitting with just the radio on when the vsc & engine lights came on. Long story short my battery had finally given up the ghost, glad workmates were there so I could duck out and get a freshie :D
  7. I feel like she's a bit heavy on the fuel, sits around the 10.5~11l/100 mark with my style of driving, whereas my old trd with more kms on the clock would an easy 1l/100 lower than that with the same style of driving. Changing out the plugs is a cheap enough exercise in my books, also going to do an injector clean (in my ultrasonic cleaner) and have a rebuild kit on the way, because what the heck. Mostly curiosity as opposed to necessity really

    Known TRD aurion issues

    One I had come up was the supercharger coupler was worn, so when the car was idling it had a very diesel engine ticking sound coming from the sc snout, the noise would go away when you applied some revs.
  9. haha damn, I only just ordered the NGK's yesterday and didn't even think of trying the pamper20 code. Oh well! :p

    Noise when starting ignition

    If you're really keen you can buy a stethoscope from supercheap, otherwise with the screwdriver you pretty much have your ear against the end of it which helps you to hear if the sound is coming from the thing it's touching.

    Bluetooth Music ?

    Typically you can't, though if you use an app like BTMono you can, but the quality is compromised.

    TRD Body kit fitted to a ZR6 ?

    I'm pretty certain that's a solid yes. I hope so anyway, I've got the TRD rear bumper & bootlid w/ spoiler that I'm going to put on my ZR6 eventually!
  13. My sincere apologies for the seemingly lazy question, I have tried searching but I'm having a royal brainfade in picking the right terms and can't find any. Just after a pic that shows the HU plugs, facing the pin opening. Thanks

    Kluger brakes fitted to Aurion sx6

    Sorry to dig this one up, but I just want to check what pads people are running with their upgraded calipers and how much dust they're putting out. Finally bought a pair of calipers yesterday (can't rush into these things haha), rotors are on the way, and I'm slightly doing my head in looking locally and internationally for pads that won't dust up and scream all day long
  15. Going by the bustling hive of activity of this forum sub, I expect a speedy response (haha) Anyways, in case there's anybody out there, just a couple of questions about that particular unit, the GA8164. 1. How do you find the sound quality compared to the stock unit? 2. Don't suppose anyone knows if there's a pre-out on that unit? The head unit info page doesn't give any specifics, just the front & rear outputs vs front & rear speaker outputs, which has me scratching my head. All I want is google maps, bluetooth connectivity, and DAB+, with a physical volume knob (not buttons!), is that too much to ask for D':
