  1. Also thinkig that since i have new control arms to just put a 6mm ot larger spacer instead of the anti lift kit for now. Again any ideas or comments 😀?
  2. You could use a carina box or just get a better stock glanza turbo box.. maybe with a factory lsd.
  3. Hey Guys My current setup is Koni Yellow and Eibach springs. I modified them by inserting a 2cm spacer inside the strut housing and the tightening the lower mounting bolt to get some more travel from the suspension.. I came across a set another Koni yellow setup but this time its from a corolla ZZE121. I like the fact that the front one have thicker piston and I was wondering If anyone has used strut inserts from another car with success. I will have to modify the strut housing from the ZZE121 in order to fit the EP7 and at the same time maybe I will make a threaded sleeve for some custom spring rates. Any ideas? 😊
  4. So i found the manifold pictures 😊 I made a plug that bolts to outlet and maybe when i stumble on an external wastegate I will put it there 😄
  5. The suspension setup is koni yellows just rebuild ep8 top mounts and eibach springs . About -1.3 camber and slight toe in .. After the track time fenders where off to build some fender braces .. It felt a lot of flex and its time for some bracing. 😀
  6. @Claymore I used an N/A exhaust manifold made a flange for the 12b turbo and outlined it on the manifold. Then I cut the outline (screwed up one manifold lol) and made a tight fit of the flange. Took it at a local welding shop and he welded up the (unweldable cast iron carefully). by the way pick a nice oil free manifold from the wreckers 😆. He did short bursts of welding and let it cool of slowly. I will try to find the pictures and post them. . @sam44 Thank tou for the kind words 😀 Here is a picture with the virgin (non turbo)grille waiting for some track time.
  7. Sorry for the delayed posts guys.. I left off Nov before Covid19 and now I have already 5k km on the car and some track testing done. So from the picture mind the ugly blue coolant hoses , I made a chargecooler and used a hybrid coolant recirculation pump and a radiator from Auris Hybrid.
  8. As many stated the stock pistons are very capable.. Even on a budget with the right piston ring gap you can get away with crazy boost levels and stock internals. Engine management is key in engine life and how hard you push the internals at lower engine speeds... Stock internals don't like shock torque loads. Tune right and you will be happy with 200+ bhp all day and be able to put the power on the road. Forged internals are great when build right ( tolerance wise ) and for the right purpose .
  9. Do you want noise? If you do modify the airbox and drop in a K@N or any other panel filter. If not just drop in a K&N green etc..
  10. So its time for an Update. Fast forward 6 months I have not lost faith yet !!! The engine is temporarily fitted to figure out turbo location . The radiator support was cut and made removable ! The engine bay was cleaned and sprayed where needed . The radiator was nicely tucked in on the radiator support and as far left as possible. I used the recipe for bigger brakes found on Epic TMC's channel So In my version I Used the Opel Astra 256 rotors but machined the hub instead of the rotor and got some single pot Celica TS calipers. Fit is awesome .. will see in the future how they perform. With white you see the part that hat to go .
  11. So what do you think about stitch welding ? Now the car is stripped down I could stitch it a bit. Which areas do you recommend? Strut towers? Frame rails ?
  12. Anyone knows where to find the valve cover gasket ? It has a stop production from Toyota and no aftermarket luck so far. I made one up for now from a 1zr engine and crazy glue
