  1. 1* can you photograph this pipe connection at the pipe and at the engine please. See highlighted text. As far as I know there should be a vent pipe from the tank to the canister to transfer the fuel vapours. Then a pipe from the canister to the TVV valve (blue plastic valve on thermo housing on 4efe starlet): Did your corolla 4efe have the same TVV valve or was it an electronic solenoid? A pipe goes from the TVV valve to the throttle body / intake to draw the fuel vapours out of the canister when the engine is above 53 deg C. There is also a vent pipe on the bottom of
  2. I've found some info on the charcoal canister for you from the Haynes workshop manual: Also from the Toyota Corolla owners manual: The first diagram shows what happens with tank under vacuum / pressure and with engine running and at different engine temps etc. The Toyota corolla owners manual describes a similar scenario. Looks like with the tank under vacuum air is led into the tank through the fuel filler cap check valve and no.3 canister check valve to prevent issues. With the tank under pressure the vapours are forced into the charcoal canister then
  3. Sounds correct to me, I've done a bit of research into it and attached some pics from the 4efe UK owners manual for future reference: The first diagram shows what happens with tank under vacuum / pressure and with engine running and at different engine temps. The starlet 4efe owners manual describes similar scenario. Looks like with the tank under vacuum air is led into the tank through the fuel filler cap check valve and no.3 canister check valve to prevent issues. With the tank under pressure the vapours are forced into the charcoal canister then led to the engine to be burned. (s
  4. Only £315 pounds less than he's asking! 🙄 😲 This 👆
  5. Hey Frankie, The filter for the cam cover pipe needs to be a "12mm crank case breather filter" there are lots on eBay. You need to remove the factory BOV, blank off the hole in the EFI pipe and fit a new BOV to the rubber hose on the turbo hot pipe (the one that goes from the turbo to the intercooler). Please post a picture of your BOV showing the broken piece. The not starting after a 24hr rest does sound like fuel pressure problem. It could be many things causing it. Any Glanza owners out there know if the fuel pump is supposed to prime at key ignition on, engine off? Or only start
  6. Great attention to detail mate, she'll be amazing when it's finished. A true step back in time for you and the SR. Approved
  7. The Nuts are m 8 x 1.25mm. Get some strong, thick washers as well because the Tuning developments downpipe holes are very big and the nuts can pull in!
  8. I'm simply trying to help Frankie make an informed decision by adding info I feel is relevant. The more info on the forum to help people the better.
  9. I am already aware of the gains from removing the restrictive "EFI" pipe, airbox and piping to reduce the upstream pressure drop created by them (as are most people on the forum by now I think?) Sock filters are best left to itb trumpets in my opinion and the amount of oil used by ITG on the panel filter I had on a previous car was ridiculous and it dripped out coating the bottom of the airbox (not good for a turbo to ingest). It is important for a cone filter to have a trumpet base also to help gather more air than a straight pipe, good performance gains here. Element / filter area
  10. Looks fine in this picture? Did it break later on? Nice work on the power steering High pressure hose, looks very professional.
  11. That's not a "hot pipe" it's the "EFI" pipe and it's the intake tube for the turbo. A "hot pipe" is the pipe carrying hot compressed air from the compressor housing of the turbo to the intercooler. "Cold Pipe" is the pipe carrying cooled air from the intercooler to the throttle body. You can leave the EFI pipe in place and blank off the mounting hole whilst fitting a breather to the rocker cover and an atmospheric dump valve to the hot pipe. http://jamesdrake13.blogspot.com/2012/03/how-to-install-monza-ssqv-blow-off.html This way no boost creep by removing the EFi pipe, fixed p
  12. Is everything alright mate? Thought I saw this for sale on FB marketplace a few weeks ago. 😥
  13. Hi Frankie, This is the Toyota oil pressure sensor for the light on the instrument cluster. As far as I know there is no oil temperature sensor as standard. This is the MAP sensor (Turbo pressure, 2 bar rating) for the toyota ECU. It is already connected to the correct port on the inlet manifold.
  14. Have them on mine and they're fine for road use. They bite well from cold as well, not too dusty either. Have had ferodo DS2500 on a previous car and compared to the equivalent greenstuffs and Pagid Blues the ds2500's weren't great when cold. Personally I wouldn't bother with dimpled / drilled and grooved and stick with a quality plain disc.
