    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    As I'm a poor student , will be ordering the EP top mount CT9 manifold combo, genuine Tial 38mm external wastegate and a walboro 255 pump next week. Potentially if a P&P ecu comes up cheap enough I'll chuck that on as well, and run 1bar safely but if not 0.8 it is on the standard ecu

    "Lsd" how can u tell

    I know with my OEM LSD, it needs load to lock up. So wheels turned, dump clutch coming out of junction it'll leave a 1 wheel peel. But load up the car first, get it crawling and then do the same it'll spin both wheels

    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    Small update. I'm back at uni, cars currently layed up at my dad's under its cover now. I made it to a local show the week before I left, she's boost cutting like an absolute bitch now it's slightly cooler tho. So much that I had to adjust the actuator when I got to the show! Still pulled away from 2 VXR's and my grandads evo tho She certainly attracted attention, despite being surrounded by rather expensive classic Ford's! Little bit on the old man's evo, to our surprise it won Best Car Of Show. A lot of hard work paid off, spent my childhood cleaning and helping build engines for this car. Definitely part of the family, even has its own room in the house lol. Now the bad news. Scarlet needs A bit of work before the next MOT, boot floor is rotten and passenger side CV joints are completely knackered are the main issues. I've got a plan, some won't like it. I'm going to flat floor the boot, cut the complete wheel well out the boot and replace with a sheet of aluminium painted white Cheers, Jack

    Looking sweet mate. You'll notice the difference with the roll bar for sure, I had mine off for a day and it just felt weird, almost as if the back of the car wasn't connected to the front

    Much better pic of how she sits now, doesn't look too bad a car now. Tried some wheel wax on the wheels, you know you're anal with car cleaning when the wheels bead To think this was it 2 months ago, nothing but elbow grease I'm heading back to uni in a few weeks time, Scarlet will be taken off the road then. Might order a cheeky forged engine package to stick under the bed over winter tho.......

    My first Car.......Ep91 Glanza called Scarlet

    Did a few niggly bits on the car this week, the black door surrounds were bugging me being faded and chipped. Pain the ass to do but satin blacked them back to how they should be. Helps dad trained as a panel beater many years ago lol. Decided to take the ol girl off the road for the winter, will just be covering it up on the front grass to keep away the salt. So took the opportunity to take pics of the evo and starlet together for the last time this year. We've booked a local show in a few weeks time but he'll be on VIP so won't be together unfornutaly. Looks so dwarfed against the Evo haha Next niggly little thing is the bumper fitment, absolutely doing my nut in every time I walked out to it. Its the huge great front mount someones put on it, the bumper is literally pressed into every edge of the cooler and pipework. And there's no movement at all in the pipes as they're touching the chassis legs! So bumper off, makes a good coffee table lol Much to everyone's hate, more of the bumper cut off and trimmed to fit the cooler and pipework. I'll get some pics of the fitment tomorrow, I'm only updating this now as I'm a student and midnight is best time of the day lol. Cars currently got the cam cover cover off and being prepped for some paint, thinking just wrinkle black with gold reflectove heat tape facing the manifold Quick spec list of what I've worked out is on the car. It got sold to me as, tatty bodywork nice steering wheel and stainless exhaust. And that was it, but when i first looked at it had way more than that. Engine Std 4efte (had sump off and they're definitely std rods unfornutaly) Zisco ramhorn manifold Zisco screamer elbow Meshed CT9 HKS adjustable actuator HKS intercooler kit (only guessing as its similar to the evo HKS pipework) Blitz Nur Spec full system Possibly Blitz ignition leads but not 100% Half size civic rad with slimline fan Gearbox OEM LSD box Uprated clutch (feels very grabby not quite 6 paddle like I've felt in the evo. Might just be me, I've only really driven a Clio diesel lol) Brakes Std discs front and rear Mintex pads front, std rear Suspension Tein springs Std dampers Cusco (??) Underbody braces, I'll take a pic when its next in the air Whiteline adjustable roll bars front and rear OEM 3 point rear strut brace Adjustable panhard rod Interior Genuine Bride drivers seat Full 98 spec interior KODE suede wheel Genuine broadway mirror Genuine HKS boost gauge Exterior Genuine Borbet RS 15x6.5 ET35 (I think) 195/50 Toyo T1R (not a fan have to say) OEM front splitter Its still running in KM's just ticked over to 180,000km earlier actually!! Not sure if the 112mph limiter has been removed. Don't really take it that high anyway tbh, but there is a chance its got a P&P ECU it just feels too quick haha.

    Good choice, best suspension for the money. Honestly the ride quality is excellent, went in an evo with Meister R's and was blown away

    Looking ace mate, what suspension set up you going for?

    This is something you might have trialled with, I wanna do boost by gear. AVCR is the easiest choice for boost control to do this, but i wanna do it via the ECU. Have you heard of someone doing this on Starlets?

    As its a road car that I'll bring to the odd track day, I need it to function as OEM. I've heard the cold starts on Link can be tricky to get right? Especially if you have aggressive cams and big injectors on our tiny CC engine

    I like the safety the link can offer, just not the price tag lol. And i also like the ease of the ME, had a play with both of the programs. But knowing theres someone on here that can help with the wiring of the link it does open that door up again. Decisions decisions

    I'm thinking ME221 for ease of installation, MX5 lot seem to rate it but heard mixed reviews on Starlets. Link G4+ is the other option, but its in a completely different price point as I'd want the wideband and additional sensors into a CAN system. Rough cost will be £2k for that option
