    Ewg question

    i didn't connect them, i left them open as the kit did not come with any blanking plugs for the water ports

    Thinking of going forged 5E

    in summary, go with the 5e, its 100% worth it
  3. looking good as usual stu and the data is good to see which gearbox are you using---ratios and final drive

    i'd suggest WEPR/Sacha they make great stuff...i've used them twice over the past decade and never had a problem with either MS or SS turbo kits and from my experience their before and after sales service is great as well----the latter is very important in this day and age

    Ep82 handbrake cables

    +1 for bean's comments on a side note, these ep82/91 handbrakes were never the best even when in good condition. I try to keep mine on decent condition as well, but i've long given up on them locking properly, especially on slopes---i'd advice you keep something close-by to prop the car in hills even if you park in a gear, or learn to run fast and dive through the car window for quick entry like dukes of hazzard

    Injector pulse wiring

    i'd suggest you drop Stu a PM...he's very knowledgeable about that kind of stuff

    Engine mounts

    i did my new rear trd one a long time ago...you have to make sure its absolutely clean before you apply the polyurethane i think i wiped it down with lacquer thinners before i started ---to get rid of any grease/oil/film could have been around 10 years its been on now...last i checked recently, the polyurethane has "separated/unglued" on each side from the main mount, but are still in perfect condition, so i just push both pieces back in place on both sides ( they now act like inserts...lol)

    piston gudgeon pin

    just get them pressed out at the machine shop...nothing special needed, just a little care you are more likely to damage a piston/ringland than a rod getting them pressed out

    just a side question...what's the wheel spacing on a starlet?--somehow 4x100 comes to mind, while you have 4 x 114???

    Engine mounts

    just putting this option out there if you can't find any ready made ones to match your needs...you could always get stock ones and pack them with polyurethane ..it comes in different grades, so you can choose to suit your needs lots of information/vids on the net on how to go about this

    High clutch pedal

    i suspect he's referring to the rod under the dashboard that connects the clutch pedal to the master cylinder but i'm sure he will respond to you soon enough

    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
