Hey guys, figured I'd finally make a build thread. So here it is, my 2004 ZZE123 Corolla Sportivo in super sensual sizzling silver (pretty boring colour actually). I've had this for maybe two months or so after I wrote my 06 Civic FD1 off after some touge in the wet.. bad feels. But after owning this over a month or so, I can honestly say I love my car, love the nice raw feeling to it (hate to say it but sort of reminiscent of a Honda, as I've owned two before this) ESPECIALLY THE LIFT. Needless to say, coilovers are probably the BEST you could do to it in regards to overall performance mods and working off a tight budget. So to speak, the first thing I had to do was get rid of that hideous 4x4 height and the handling which resembled something like the Titanic. So I got my hands on some BC BR Series Coilovers. Aaaaaaaaaaaand this is how she sat afterwards :) Few nifty shots from those late night shenanigans ;) After a while, close mate of mine wanted to paint his foggies. I said hey why not but I wasn't a huge fan of yellow foggies on rolla's. Unless they're a Hachiroku derp but how often do you come across them? Anyway, he said what do you think about amber corners? Looked great on his old dc2 so I went for it. Learnt a few things about how to paint here and there and I was pretty happy with how it turned out. So now this brings us to a few days ago. After reading up here and there, I tossed up between a CAI and a SRI. Intakes are intakes, depends what you want really; I was searching for more low end power and a more responsive feeling. So I finally chose the k&n typhoon series SRI and well, I love it. Lift sounds great, amazing throttle response and notable hp gains (minimal but you can't expect anything much from an intake lel). But yeah, that's pretty much all that's done to it really. Pretty standard to say the least but I have more planned for it. I'll leave you guys with a few shots of it recently, a video I made for fun with a few mates and a video of how she runs with the SRI for those of you who are looking into a short ram. Cheers guys, will update you with more in time! **** around vid Sound Check!
Hi guys and Girls, I am Trent and I am 20 in November, Live in Penrith (Western Sydney) and am currently inlove with my new corolla Sportivo.
