[rally] azerty's luv story

77 posts in this topic

Some of you might know my car from other forums&pages. I decided to copy my love story over here aswell :)


October 2001 she arrived from Japan

DSC00401.jpg

Engine was fully standard, just had Blitz air filter and stainless exhaust box.
The car came with volks rays TE37 15' bronze wheels plus TRD coilovers :cool:
First mod has been news 3G brakediscs and Pagid fast road pads to help her in the slow down task.

then after 3 years studying around. I learned quite few things and decided I was ready to move for more power. I finaly found a full front cut with uprated parts.
CT12 hybrid Turbo, Stainless manifold and downpipe, Fuel regulator, LSD gearbox, TRD wiring, Blitzdualdrive BOV, FCD, SLD, FMIC, Electronic boost controler...

car has been fully debadged and resprayed with standard white color

Bumper has been modified to match my new FMIC

IMG_1182_low.jpg

new transparent side indicators have been painted black to match headlight design

final touch after spray, oh yeah she's shiny !

so I went out for some new pics :

Then I have fited a new 'shorter' registration plate

IMG_1327_low.jpg

back in those day we had no quartermile event. So I decided the car was ready for a Run session test, the only one she did (won all three Races against 4age 20valv GT, CT20 glanza and Ford Capri SR20DET, not bad hey ?)

Bonnet had some marks, so I decided to send it back to sprayer and use my black bonnet while it was resprayed. I wasn't happy with first plate location, so I moved it a bit on the right

So now you could think, I was happy enough? well, yes I was but unfortunatly I had access to this nice Turbo kit

Photo-072.jpg


So I just went for it, but this was quite bigger, a fuel regulator wasn't good enough... I bought some new 360 cc injectors and a brand new emanage ultimate

DSC00018.jpg

DSC00020.jpg

Clutch lasted 3 weeks lol, so well, I needed a new TRD clutch kit of course, plus few other bits

DSC00019.jpg

and here it is, she was fine tuned runing at 0.6 bar on low boost up to 1bar on some needed occasions :)

then I decided to work on the interrior. Sparco steeringwheel & buckets, 4 points sabelt harness, TRD ducaron gear knob and multipoint rollcage :cool:

^^ watermeth injection kit

Did you notice much gains from it buddy, read up on them and they say around 20% extra bhp

Thanks guys :)

yes, I would say 10-15% power gain which is quite great already :)
when the kit triggers, you can add 3/5 degree on your ignition timing map
AIT goes from 48/53°C without watermeth to 23/28°C with watermeth injection
EGT goes down about 50°C less than fuel injection only.
So it is not only more power, it is much cooler/safer setup to run


Impressive !, what sorta power you runing ?


it has never been dinoed. I do mapping on the road myself
but has won quite few slalom and rally stage which should let think it has an efficient powerband.
I would say around 190hp at 1 bar. 210 hp at 1.2 bar. the turbo compressor flowmap is designed to be efficient up to 1.8 bar. it should be around 240hp over there, but I haven't tried yet as I didn't need that much power on events I was entering in (too much power is a prob on 1st and 2nd gears on some events)

that gt-fs is just sex :)


indeed sacha. I can get you one if you need :p
Seriously, thanks again for developping that kit to specific slalom/rally requirements
