    anyone had a scoob?

    hi guys i want some real world advice on scoobs from previous owners if there are any. are running costs and maintenence really that horrific compared to a modified glanza? talking about a standard blobeye sti 280-300bhp maybe a few little mods but nothing daft. would love a classic but guessing they take a lot more looking after.

    Centre diff

    when the coupling is engaged its still front biased. but my 4wd starlet with a set of meister coilovers was crazy good in the corners. like shockingly good.

    Centre diff

    exactly right...the coupling only engages when the front wheels turn faster than the rear like you say. so if theres no wheelspin then the coupling never engages - theres no need to. during a hard launch it will engage the rear wheels if the front break traction (quite likely with a td04 setup) then when the car is moving and all wheels are spinning at an equal rate the coupling disengages reverting the car back to fwd meaning you get the best of both worlds...a 4wd launch and at higher speed the car doesnt lose as much power through the transmission meaning more acceleration. its a brilliant and clever system in my opinion

    About to embark on a EP95 5efhte

    also sorry i misread the dash question - im fairly sure the ep95 and ep91 dash are the same. so yes its just a case of swapping the clocks/cluster.

    yeah I think the ep91 loom is different to the ep82 loom. you should get the whole glanza loom and full glanza dash cluster - it just makes things a lot easier rather than trying to mate the glanza loom to the ep95 clocks. not sure on the airbag thing.

    - you will need a loom from an ep91 glanza, that will be the easiest route to do the swap - it depends how much power you are looking for. I'm pretty sure the EMB is good for over 200hp atw (approx 230-40 at the crank for us English). imo a standalone ecu is only worth while if chasing very high power - you can put the taller 5th gear in the 4wd box but I don't personally think its worth it. close ratio gearbox is better in my opinion but it does serve some purpose if you want the higher top end for racing etc other than that leave the box and diffs well alone - drivetrain on these cars has been proven to be very reliable at power levels of around 250+hp at the crank - Toyota never made an LSD for them (they were meant to be 4efe powered)but there is some very limited information on here about someone trying to test fit other LSD's. not entirely sure how that went but I would assume unsuccessfully as we haven't heard anything new. but to be honest, if you have 200hp atw it will just hook up and go. no need for LSD's even at 250atw - best way is to swap the full glanza ep91 loom and full clocks/dash cluster (unless you're an electronics genius and want to make it all custom) - the sump on the ep95 is different to the ep91 due to the transfer box section - you need to modify the 4efte sump. along with the loom, this is the most awkward part of converting the 4wd car to turbo

    4wd conversion

    where was that because if its the car im thinking about then its a minter or was at least.

    4wd conversion

    nah that's what I mean dude lol I want the stock 4efe one so I can build it myself
  10. richglanzav

    Opinions wanted

    stick a decent set of tyres and springs and brakes on it and it would be a little street rocket id say fully properly finished though its gonna be worth something like £3500

    4wd conversion

    would anyone like to disclose the location of a nice black ep85 sports selection? I never went for the one that was for sale before as its had a few too many 300bhp 4efte's boosting through its drivetrain

    4wd conversion

    if you want a 4wd turbo starlet you need to put the turbo engine into the 4wd car, not the 4wd system into the turbo car

    Alloys to fit Ksport 6 Pot

    i had team dynamics pro race 3 wheels on my mx5 over 4 pot wilwoods and there was plenty and I mean tonnes of spare room left over so id be surprised if they didn't fit over K Sports

    stock engine mounts

    Hey guys I'm giving up and am gonna buy a new stock rear box mount but need to make sure its the correct part number. I've attached a copy of the part numbers diagram could someone just confirm the part number I need. The car is a 1998 non-LSD box glanza before anyone says I know its fuckin expensive lol but I want the car sorted and there simply are no decent nick stock mounts about so id rather just get a new one cheers Section_06032018_1422.pdf
