  1. Hey dude, let us know how you in your next 4x4 event, i reckon you'll have no issues in the dune sections. Wheels look great, it's nice to hand the monster truck mantle over to someone with a head as large as mine Cheers Kerr
  2. Hey everyone, It's been awhile to say the least. I still have my Corolla Sportivo and it has been through some massive changes! I ended up finally finding a plug and play Apexi PowerFC Unit + Hand Controller from a mate and to be expected i ended up having issues again lmao. Car made significantly more power with it plugged in, gaining 34HP through the midrange, 18 in the top end and improving drivability enormously. Lift was tuned in at 5200RPM and made for a really fun spirited drive. I say 'had' because i ended up removing it due to the idle issue, something the previous owner also deal
  3. If you're referring to changing gears at 8000rpm, generally unless you slip the clutch you won't land lift in second gear without absolutely ragging on the box. When i change into second from first, i delay my shift about halfway through (around neutral) to prevent locking out of the gear and grinding the synchro, it's how i munted second gear on my original gearbox. Take it easy, the car's not even fast in a straight line so no point slamming gears to be honest.
  4. Honestly the don't need alot, get some decent oil into the motor (5w40 full Synthetic is what i use) and into the box (i run 75w-90 with nulon g70) and you're pretty much set My basic go would be; Intake, Exhaust, Coilovers, Rear Sway bar and some decent tyres Or even Tyres and Coilovers, can't go wrong :))
  5. i made 157 on a 'true reading' dyno man, on a more generous dyno such as those who achieve 180 ect it would be closer to the 200hp atw man. Sounds pretty low but its all about power to weight, was never purchased as a fast car just wanted something i can have a bit of fun in and send it around the track and make some good times! Some updated photos, all pretty average quality sorryboutit :)) Also i apologize for my calves, im ashamed too
  6. UPDATE BECAUSE SATURDAYS ARE FOR THE BOYS Most recent mod: Recaro SR3's in Leather with Red stitching on Bride Rails! Protected by Bowden's Detailing line for leather care. Also put in a fire extinguisher for those track days down to maccas, was a really clean install and ill see if i can get a photo soon :) Tyre letters were installed a few weeks back but heres a close up shot of them anyway! Cheers love you all
  7. UPDATE FOR THE BOYS So past few weeks, I've done a few things, -New Double Halo Angel eyes, change to a bright orange when indicating aswell ,looks **** awesome IMO - Bumper quick releases because my clips were ruined -The Lowdown Limited edition (personal preference) -Pair of Hellatones mounted behind grill -Fully sik Yokohama Sportivo tyre lettering -Slimline tinted weathersheilds -DBA T2 Slotted Rotors (not sure if i've mentioned this in the past) -HID's replaced with LED globes all around - Smoked side indicators Also have a suprise coming in the week, very excite
  8. Check lift bolts, is often the cause for this issue. Worst comes to worst could be a ****** fuel pump or a reset of the ecu. Do the small things first man, few mechanics have knowledge of the 2zzge, let alone diagnosing why lift isn't engaging. I'd 100% replace the liftbolts though.
  9. This is a long term project for me, and one day i plan on building and boosting it. Long time away though. I get tempted to sell it but i honestly love it, theres nothing else around like it and everything done is done by me, making it an extremely personal build. Could be wrong but isn't yours for sale dude? Please don't sell it i need more tivo mates hahaha. Fuel economy is the same atm dude,haven't been worried about it to be honest so it's running as normal as far as i can tell. I'll try find someone soon enough man. And i didn't grab a dyno sheet man, i was mostly look
  10. Gains so far are fantastic man, don't expect a stupid amount of power straight up but it made a difference, To be honest, it's honestly up to you if you think its worth it. If you track your car or enjoy a spirited drive i couldn't recommend it more. It is an absolute **** around (for me anyway) to have it put in, find someone who can and has done it before. i can't stress that enough.
  11. Well a long overdue update is in order i'd say. I have had a very expensive past month or so with such being done; >V-manage ecu Tuned and fitted, this was an absolute **** around to do and all though it's fantastic, find someone who knows what they're doing as the tuner's i went to had no idea what they were doing pretty much. >Brand new Exedy HD clutch and Xtreme Performance Lightweight Flywheel >Brand new DBA Slotted T2 rotors both Front and Rears >A NEW GEARBOX Gearbox went on the drive home after the tune, was stupidly dissapointed as i had already had a terrible d
  12. Happy for you man, if you get the chance let me know on FB how much you got the rebuild for, would be keen on one day getting my gearbox done aswell just for prevention.
  13. Yeah i've got a few scrapes on the side skirt thanks to the previous owner, isn't took bad though so i'm not worried hey. Front scrapes underneath the lip is pretty normal tbh, luckily i've got a new one ready to go on after a nice coat of paint and polish. Find a height that suits you best i suppose, i'm 80mm off the ground and its a reasonable height tbh and i wouldn't go any lower.
  14. >raising the car to a more suitable height mate if you can get over curbs whats the point in existing ;)
  15. I don't drive like a gimp really, i've dealt with bad gears and rev match a fair bit so i do my best to prevent it If you're dropping your car into second @ 90kms and **** then eventually you're gonna have issues, if im having a bit of fun ill drop from sixth to third because on freeways that's straight into lift and alot of fun to surprise people. It's not doing harm and i wouldn't do it unless i knew it was fine. At the end of the day it's all for fun and i drive it the way it's meant to be driven. It's so good man!
  16. Exedy HD Extreme Lightened Flywheel Greddy V-Manage piggyback ecu, gonna be mad ;) Anddddddddd a recent photo (2 months old) but a personal favourite of mine. I have got rid of the lowdown banner and replaced it with my own glossblack banner with a few neat stickers, will be putting photos up no doubt soon.
  17. Thought I'd make an update with the few mods I've done in the last week and will be doing over the next month or so! i have installed the extended pushrod for the clutch, a TWM short shifter and am now chasing a weighted knob! Any reccomendations would be appreciated ! i also installed a set of BC racings coilovers which I got for a fantastic price, could not believe the change in the cars handling. Easily the best upgrade I've done for the car. Greddy V-Manage ecu has arrived and will be installed in the car hopefully by the end of this week, just when I have time to do it! I h
  18. Sorry to hear man, i had the same **** for my third gear. Look forward to your mad modz
  19. Yeah man, my stepdad's stivo has 200kms on it and hasn't had any major issues what so ever. I'm thinking that one day i'd rather buy a low km engine and swap it into my sportivo then have to scrap it/sell it if one day it goes. Do love this car.
  20. I've seen them on there, just not too fussed about all that too be honest, i'll get a decent set of rims one day.
