  1. Not updated this in a while, I do hope this site hasnt become a graveyard ! Its been off the road in the garage for about a year now, reason being it needs some tlc. Its had a new oil pump and seals, new water pump and timing belt kit
  2. lovely build and the car looks awsome. Where did you get the new headlamps from if you dont mind me asking ? Im at that point too.
  3. Its been a while since I updated this thread, to pick up where I left off I finished reassembling the engine and got it running all be it only for a short time as it needed mapping. So off to tuning developments it went, unfortunately due to the compression ratio the corolla inlet was no good and needed to be changed for an fte inlet and throttle body along with an fte dizzy setup. Mike ran the engine in on the dyno for a 1k miles on the dyno before mapping and it was fitted with a link standalone ecu as the emange piggy back wouldnt do what was needed. She made 144 bhp @0.5 bar on a stoc
  4. its getting there mate, great to see some positive updates. Bet you cant wait to get it back and just drive it ?
  5. Ah such a shame after all the hardwork thats gone in to it, enjoyed the channel on yt too. shame it wasnt repairable as it appeared rust free which is becoming a rarity these days. any joy finding another yet mate ?
  6. it looks lovely and clean, bet it will go like a scalded cat ! keep up the great work
  7. Glad to hear it’s progressing mate, the work looks good. Maybe done for the summer ?
  8. just a few more bits to gather and bolt to it then it’s going in !
  9. Looking good mate I hope u get it back soon so you can start enjoying it again
  10. Mate u would be more than welcome to come over, I can’t wait till it’s back together and mapped I’m looking forward to getting it out on track
  11. The block and head are back from the machine shop so can now start putting it back together. Blocks been bored to 74.5mm with a deck polish, heads been stripped again, re pressure tested, valve seats re cut and lapped in with some porting also
  12. Forgot to mention also my neighbour unfortunately backed in to it as well last week and caused minor body damage and broke the left tail light lense 🤦‍♂️. Toyota don’t do the lenses anymore and are like rocking 🐴 💩 to find ! Lucky Dan at djr imports had one for £120 to help me out and I need to book the car in at work to have the bumper done.
  13. Not updated this in a while, the glanza still gets used as a daily and although it passes mot every year a few things need doing on it now. I have new powerflex mounts as the stock ones are a bit tired now. The flexi started to blow on the exhaust too so got a new stainless one to weld in. There’s also an oil leak from the timing side ( probably oil pump o ring) that needs seeing to and I think the water pump has a slight weep so plenty to keep me busy. Also bagged some new his gaskets for the exhaust as well.
  14. Also went for an fte lightened flywheel and new exedy clutch to match which is all at my engine builders being balanced
  15. Yeah it already had a forged crankshaft in it when I pulled it out, just waiting on the block to come back from the machine shop then I’ll get it back together
