TrisKs 98 spec V

Recommended Posts

Hey,

had my glanza about almost a year now

already had a few issues, dodgy ht leads leading to a misfire in the wet (As water came through the scoop), then an earthing issue, a replacement clutch, door handle snapped off, and now with all this wet weather the misfire it back (im hoping its just leads again)

but over all, im loving the little machine, a bit step up from my old fiesta

But without further ado, some pics of the glanza:

and my favourite:

Since these photos ive got tinted UK spec rear lights, lower profile tyres and its a lot lower

ive also been through 2 dv's, the standard, a ssqv3 and a baileys.

im currently running the baileys, although i switch been the ssqv and the baileys fairly regularly.

i also have attempted a HID conversion, which worked fine. but there is some sort of electrical problem with the passenger light, so it keeps blowing a fuse. only with the HID kit though, normal bulbs do not blow it. i think its to do with a relay getting wet.

so the whole kit will come out (probably this weekend), ill check over the wiring and everything, then will try and put it back in a later date.

ive got a JAM racing spoiler to go on when i can get it round to the body shop, as it needs some repair work before it can be sprayed.

I want to get hold of a JAM front lip to put on.

i will get some photos with the low, rear lights and spoiler (when its on) on soon.

Please note: i have also tidied the engine bay, since that enginge bay shot, my hoses are now a lot more organised

I also did a charity sprint with it in october

best time over a 1/4 mile was 16.8

i should have done better, but it was very wet over the finish line, so i was easing off into 4th, as the braking was round a corner. i know, if in doubt go flat out. but i didnt want to write my baby

and the joys of being low, nice and even tyre wear, NAAWT

Some specs for people that care:

98 facelight V.

running ~1bar, with a hks actuator and JAM FCD.

as far as i know, its the standard turbo and manifold.

some exhaust system with a sports cat

Trust mushroom air filter

Relocated airfilter

relocated radiator fluid

baileys dump valve

Volks TE37s

Tien super street coilver overs

adjustable panard rod

and finally found a picture of the rear lights

you may notice my number plate change, this cause it is over a year period of photos.

my number was 26750, and is now 969 (Guernsey, so we only have numbers in our plates, cool heh!)

Thanks mate, you can see the kind of lights i used to have in the picture i put up. i just really wasnt fond of them.

does anybody know if they have any resale value?

That pic with all the wood is sweet
Nice car. And nice pics.

Thanks guys. They are thanks to my mate Jac, he knows his way around a camera. and particuarly likes taking photos of cars, works for me!

Welcome! :lol:

Nice glanza, but 1 Bar and no Fuelling mods, only FCD?

Ive read this a lot. i cant see a fpr or anything in the engine bay.

unless i have an uprated ECU, although i have looked at the pics of a standard ECU compared to a JAM Racing one and a few other after market ECUs and they look physically the same.

i have found the FCD box, so i presume i must have the standard ECU if i need a FCD.

What would i need in the way of fuelling mods, ive done 10,000 miles in it and nothing has gone wrong yet.

so what would i need, and how much am i looking at?

everybody seems to be hating on the lights.

i think they look much better.

Cleans up and simplifies the back end alot.

Can anyone provide me with a picture of a JAM lip on a facelight white glanza?

also a facelift white glanza with a cupra r splitter?

Get some of the later spec lights on it, they look gorgeous - the red style ones I believe were used on the Reflet? They will make it look so clean!

And JAM lips on 98 spec bumpers look AWESOME! Il find one for you.

Looks immense mate!!

Where you from?

Thanks mate.

From Guernsey, in the Channel Islands. (Its how I managed to insure a Glanza V at 18. (Although I'm nearly 20 now, and boy is the insurance going down now)

Yeah get rid of those tinted lights, not a good look!

By the way that Cupra splitter above looks a bit dodgy, they didnt cut the slats in the centre which is why it looks bent lol

Should look like this when trimmed: http://i56.photobucket.com/albums/g178/low...100530-1556.jpg

Thanks mate, id actually loooked at yours in another thread which was one of the reasons that made me want one

Here we are...

Thanks buddy, given me a much better idea of what it would look like.

Does anyone know how rare/expensive the JAM ones are to come accross? I dont mind second hand, or even replica if i have to.

would need a fmic to run a S bonnet.

Car looks wicked! could do with a wheel aligmnet by the look of it lol. might wanna think about getting a RRFPR and a quick trip to a RR before you do to much else.

new engine would cost alot more then a new front lip thats for sure

Yeah im gonna get a laser alignment this weekend i think.

Could somebody link me to a RRFPR, and a fitting guide if there is one?

I was talking to my mate whos a mechanic, and he seemed to think that without bigger injectors, the standard FPR would be fine. Although he is no glanza expert.

yeah nothing wrong with the stock FPR its the fact that the FCD is potentialy making the car run lean... having a RRFPR means you can up the fuel rail pressure so you run richer through the whole rev range, meaning where the ecu is leaning out top end its now not. if that makes sence lol

injectors should be all good upto 200bhp

Any particular brand or seller to go for for the RRFPR? or fitting information? is it a home do-able job?

Two quick ones showing the new lowness:
