    Manifold material

    i've ran both...MS lasted 10 years (and was still in good condition)...now i have on a SS.......both made by WEPR/Sacha and no problems whatsoever with either if you have good quality SS, then it will last and as said above, will look better.........make sure to brace whichever you get,if it doesn't already come braced

    Engine block numbers

    PS...the manual says to add the block number and the crankshaft number to determine the correct main bearing size for each journal there are 5 numbers stamped on the crankshaft as well

    St185 GT4 twinpot front callipers.

    part of the reason may be that many persons don't use that specific set up....i've seen members using celica st202 and levin twin pot set ups and st185 single pot set ups more so however, i'm not aware of the celica st185 twin pot set up and whats required to make it work on the starlet-----hence a possible reason for the silence on the matter from the forum
  4. the only inserts people have run in the past are from Koni,,,that's probably why no one has responded, as they don't know

    Launching a Starlet Gt

    yeah,,,to add to robsr,,,you need to maintain the balance between bogging the car and wheel spin some moderate clutch slip, suspension set up, good tires, track prep, etc all will play a part.....but its something you should get better at with more experience

    ME221 EP91 ECU

    why not research megasquirt if going the cheaper route?...it's been around for a while now i'm no tuner, but some people have used them in the past...best to ask for their experiences on the starlet

    TD04 Fuel Pressure Settings

    i'll give you some advice. take out those bigger cc injectors and put back in the stock injectors---i'd supspect your car is running very very rich with the blitz and larger injectors as it is right now turn the aftermarket FPR down to stock pressure or reinstall the stock fpr...either option should work take your car to a tuner/dyno and get it checked/tuned properly---this will determine your safe boost/map

    Refurbing kyb super special shocks.

    try to get rubber bump stoppers i find the composite/yellow ones tend to disintegrate much faster than the rubber over time

    Glanza Front Wheel Bearings Keep Going

    front wheel bearings tend to last a very long time i'd suggest you check your suspension parts, alignment and/hubs to see if there is any excessive wear/movements
  12. i think the stock radiator cap is 0.9, but may be someone else can confirm

    Poly Bushes

    this is why i went with TRD engine mounts ages ago...based on reports, they fall somewhere in the middle of stock and polybushes. i've no issues with excessive vibration and they seem to have held up well over the years, but i'm not sure if they are still available on the market. i'll give you some options that have been discussed in the past: 1) get genuine stock mounts and fill the gearbox one with polyurethane (you can fill the other 2 mounts afterwards if you need them firmer and depending on how your car feels), i'd also suggest an engine torque damper to brace the engine at the top 2) get trd mounts and run as is at first to see how you like them, if you want more stiffness, then you can fill the rear one with polyurethane, then the 2 side ones as you desire. again i suggest an engine torque damper 3) i've heard they are different stiffness polybushes available, remove the ones you have now and try softer grade polybushes
