  1. That's my old one and best mate,she works in Colchester paints and panels
  2. I've looked, quality is 360p 😭 think it was filmed off a Nokia 3310 lol
  3. I've been toying with the idea of stickering up my glanza the same as the jam car was. Has anyone got any clearer pictures of the car? I cant quite make out the row of brands on the rear quarter panel
  4. Car has had a few miles on it recently, about 50miles each way down to Shotley for a Japanese coffee meet. Largely off boost but still logging the car, then on the way back ended up playing with a Hawkeye STI 😂 so a rush 0.7bar map whilst blasting down the country lanes pushing the STI was done. The poor girl did okay, the 1.5way diff is vastly superior to the OEM one I dont care what people say. Seems to want to actually put the power down and not just leave 11s everwhere. Still feels super laggy, Sacha from WEPR said the turbo really wont wake up till its over 1bar so will have to wait for the full 1.5bar power runs to see the lag. And then the sad part, dug out my old trusty 98 glanza and sold her. My first car and had a a lot of time and money spent saving this one as it was a very worn and abused example. Shes staying the family and in the same unit but different owner
  5. With a bit of a rush, MOT time Saturday. She passed with a few things needing to be adjusted. Rear wheel bearings and front ARB droplinks. Shes got a years ticket with no drama at all other than the "donor" car failing emissions hahaha Then it was a mad rush to get things sorted for a small local show just to put some miles on her. Painted the green wheel 040 white, nut and bolt check, rear seats in, wiper arms painted and power steering pump painted It does have a strange noise though. As it's starting to make boost, it makes a jingle. Almost like a vband or something rattling, and cannot find it or recreate it standing still
  6. MOT checks and niggles sorted out, new bulbs throughout. Nightbreaker Lasers for the headlights, sidelights, and fogs. Interior put back together after wideband install and ME221 going in, wont be staying that way too long as I have a Bride Brix done in suede. But I've done what I did with the glanza last year, booked a show and the car is nowhere near ready lol. Reg plates on (need a private plate asap as I hate the NI regs) next update will be MOT on the 5th. Hopefully be putting a few miles on it road mapping, service, all ready for the show on the 6th. Big task but should be doable
  7. Many updates when it's going on the road, Electronic throttle, sequential ignition and so on. All going forward, just hope the poor TD04 can take the abuse lol
  8. Well, surprise surprise it runs. Idles like an absolute dream and seems reasonably happy. Next job is move her off the front grass and start pre-mot checks
  9. What made you put an air filter on? Meshed sounds too good lol
  10. Not much been happening with the car lately, just waiting on parts mainly. But my ME211 has finally arrived Wasted no time in getting that in the original case be interested to know what others have done to get to the flashing plug on the ECU. Thinking about getting an extension cable, drilling a hole in the case and having it permanently plugged in and lopped up in the glove box Fingers crossed the next update will be the big one, the first start up. Not actually heard this thing run ever, so we'll see if this is the good blind Facebook purchase or a nugget. Fingers crossed Cheers, Jack
  11. I did notice on the spec sheet it said low comp Wiseco pistons, I can presume these are the 8.0:1 ones. With the 1.4mm headgasket I reckon the compression ratio is very low indeed. I'll have to wait till my ME221 turns up and see what that means in terms of drivability
  12. I still have my other glanza, have no need to sell that so maybe that one can scratch the itch. I'll have to think about it. These first world problems haha
  13. As is the way with these cars, cant postpone it anymore and decided to take skirts off and inspect for the dreaded tin worm. I got sent a video of it briefly before I bought, but needed to see for myself. What a lovely surprise it is not to have a rusty jap car lol I'm more than happy with this, but does beg the question if it's now too clean an example to rag the shit out of on track
  14. I've no idea tbh mate, bought the car relatively cheaply. Engine was built by TMD about 10yrs ago but done next to no mileage, so who knows how they built it. Yeh its SCAT rods, not my first choice but they seem popular in starbos. Well at least I know 8k is where I can sensibly stay, maybe push a little more and have an 8k shift point
