Yeah, it's good to have a spare and by the sounds of it you need it too!

If I could find a unicorn LSD box, I'd be jumping all over it! But they're super rare here now :(

Slight update: my friend forgot about the wheel bearing, but he has resealed the Oil pump and Sump as they were leaking again. Fingers crossed that stops the oil leaks.

I posted on a local Facebook group in regards to people's thoughts on the HDI intercooler kits, the general consensus seems to be that they're not as bolt on as suggested, so I'm torn in half going for a fully custom set up, or biting the bullet and worrying about fitment issues later.

This is the kit: https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1737778681

The wiring in my Starlet is a sad mess, however I pulled out the annoying Turbo timer last night:

I also replaced my cheap Sony headunit with a much nicer Pioneer MVH-S305BT

Small update, haven't done anything interesting other than an oil and filter change at 230,000k.

I've ordered the following parts:

- JD Tuning Civic radiator mounting kit

- Intake and Exhaust gaskets

- Powerflex steering rack bushes (the O and D ones)

I was looking at a HDI intercooler kit, but my friend who's somewhat handy with a welder has offered to make me a custom front mount set up and all I have to do is figure out what piping I need.

I have a hdi kit fmic and pipes if your running td04 set up ?

Still the factory CT9 at the moment, not too sure what route I want to go just yet in terms of power set up.

I'm also in New Zealand, so shipping may be a little un-economical :(

It's a long weekend here in NZ and I dedicated a few hours to the Starlet today to put some Seafoam through the engine and polish the headlights

I love using Seafoam, creates a huge smokey mess and the engine felt a little lively after.

Yeah silly love leaving the doors open, ah well! Also found my downpipe gasket is leaking.

Tried to replace the steering rack bushes, but I only had enough room to replace the drivers side one:

The engine has developed a weird "ticking" noise.. to me it sounds like 
 
In the mean time, I figure I'll still prep for the trackday, so I flushed out the brake fluid and put in some TRW racing fluid. I used a syringe to suck out most of the old fluid that i could, then poured in the good stuff, however after doing that, this little dirt cloud appeared:

So I sucked that out too.
 
Two hours hours, job done! I did this on my own, a first and I'm quite chuffed I had no issues :D
 
Except I found this boot had split, poo.
