    To achieve a very efficient engine target is 200+hp 200+ftlds @ as close to 40mpg. These are modern day production line and race car requirements.

    Chemistry, Physics, and maths tells me what to expect.
    I find enjoyment in advancing to the points which new algorithms are required.
    I'm also liking seeing how far I can push the fuel, thermal, volumetric efficiency of this Toyota E series engine using the light weight not very safe ep91 platform.

    I hope everyone is well and enjoying spring in the UK. I've not been on much due to work. There has been some great racing over the past 2 months, not only in F1 with the Merc no longer the best car, Bathurst has been amazing and the start to the all electric off road series also very good. Moto GP.
  2. Proper little build this. Great read. Keep it up.
  3. Loving the look and work. Keep them update coming. Summers here.
  4. Boot mats every were, haha. I need 1. Looking bang tidy.
  5. Yeh I suppose it's best for them to hit it in 1 go. Them boot mats do look smart.
  6. Having a good catch up with everyone's build. I highly recommend replacing all the hoses and especially the crap Toyota spring hose clips. When I changed mine alot of the hoses had started to rot (age related) this in turn affects to clips. Nice work. Very smart bay.
  7. The ep91 shifter cables will fit but the bracket that holds the cables to the gearbox (directly above the Speedo drive) needs moding. I've not got to this point yet. It will need to be at the installation point to do this. There's also to inner drivshaft CV joint cup we discussed earlier in the year that could make the install much easier. This will be a job for next year I recon. As soon as I'm back Im collecting the paseo and getting the ep91 starbo to a high level + dynoed. As well as send some items over to you (first job). It's really great to build these cars along side
  8. No the c60 and c160 have the same bolt fitment as the 4efte c52 and c56. The Cusco lsd unit is second hand off these (out of a glanza box). Only used twice on track and not to any kind of kick ass level. It's the C63 and c64 2zz 6 speeds that need the crown gear I had made they just need case hardening. These boxes are stronger again they have a better syncro setup and wider gears, mainly the final drive gear. The lsd unit you have here is a great bit of kit. I believe it's a trd brand. these cars definitely need lsd. It's a game changer. Worth every penny. Really nice w
  9. Yeh for road that diff will be great. the Cusco unit is abit jerky in the cold on full lock. But what a diff with the c60 box its an amazing combo. I can launch the car in 2nd gear and hit 60mph. We recorded crazy mph times. This is how I ripped to rear gearbox mount off the c160 box. Hard launches. With the c60 box in it now it's topping out at around 55mph in 2nd. But this box is much stronger.
  10. The old launch nice find. Looking great.
  11. I'm on the Cusco 1.5 rs. What a diff it is very sensitive locks quite easily/very reactive which will lead to accelerated tyre wear. after I ran a glanza none lsd box for a few month. Horrible box!!! Over geared. Lsd is curtainly needed for good launch after around 160hp (tyre size/compound comes in here as well). The only issue i have with the Cusco lsd unit is as soon as I let off the accelerator (hard acceleration) it unlocks, lending to instant understeer. This can catch you out when racing close quarters. You have to correct before you let off which is like predicting the future. Ha
  12. Yeh me to it cost a bomb but like you say it's needed to help reduce rear end drag and looks smart. Thanks for putting me onto it.
  13. Fantastic work. Really I'm very impressed the hours that go into a head like this are crazy. I'm loving the little angle above the exhaust valves on the squish band zone great work.
  14. no ive not, i had a st185 gt4 as well. i really like the chunky, cast look of these older bov valves. they look industrial strength power. matches the car period. the bailys type bucket valve i got on mine was prone to sticking open. very poor design. im really enjoying the build. thanks for sharing the progress.
  15. the old school bov valves do look the bollocks. im running the old school hks unit. built to last.
