  1. i'm not from your region, but i've heard members mention the company Bigg Red over the years for brake caliper repair/rebuild kits...you should be able to get pistons, rubbers, seals, etc from there if you can get the correct part numbers
  2. do you know if the glanza ep91 steering column would be able to connect with the n/a power steering rack? would either the n/a or glanza connecting knuckle joint make a difference in helping with the fitment?--- i see two different types joints in this post...so just wondering...though that post was more concerned with PS vs non-PS, which is not my concern here
  3. does anyone know if the the n/a ep91 power steering rack is interchangeable with the glanza ep91 power steering rack? is it a direct fit, does it require minor mods to work, or will not work at all? thanks for any feedback
  4. i've had the blue 550/565cc subaru injectors in since 2018...no issues at all they usually sell very cheap on the subaru/sti forums...a used set cost me around US$100 + shipping back then, so may be around gbp100 if you get lucky PS--if you go this route, PLEASE make sure you get genuine ones, they are a LOT of fake cheap chinese ones on ebay
  5. subaru sti 550/565cc injectors also work (pink or dark blue) and have a nice spray pattern you will need to remove two of the black plastic pieces that are used as spacers on the fuel rail, as they are a little shorter than the stock injectors this is an option if you can get them cheap
  6. https://www.toyotagtturbo.com/community/index.php?threads/goldenvtr-how-it-began-deffo-not-56k-friendly.2902/ scroll about 2/3 down this page and look at the 2 dyno graphs --4efte/td04l and 5efte/tdo4l
  7. it depends on what the owners want from the car...the stock td04l/5e can make decent power for a daily and have a nice power band...can start with the cheap tdo4l and always upgrade later on if required
  8. having personally run a td04l on a 5e, i'd say go with that, it was a great daily drive...lots of response and torque for the stock rev limit (7200 rpm). you get spool early 2000/2500rpm, decent boost by 3000/4000rpm...and tapers off around 5500/6500 rpm in time for the limiter to kick in....it feels like a much improved monster version of the stock 4efte/ct9 set up if you plan to rev to 8,000/9000 rpm on the forge 5e, then the stock td04l is not for you based on the description of the tf035, i'd say the td04l is better suited to the 5e out of the two
  9. this was used in the earlier days, especially in jamaica. i'm not sure if its still popular now the acis intake manifold is a decent option if you set it up properly
  10. i run 205/50r15 on my glanza for along time now...i had to raise the car using the coilovers and i had the rear fender lips trimmed to reduce any rubbing from the tires kumho ku36 i found these helped a bit with traction (less wheel spin) compared to the 195/50/15s i ran prior i don't track my car though https://www.vulcantire.com/ecstaxsku36_t.htm those are the specs
  11. i've done the same on the 5Es since 2007/2008...never had a leak as well i'm not sure with regards to how things will work with the new angle/location you propose
  12. i'm not sure how effective td04l internals would be in a ct9 turbine housing, the ct9 housing is fairly restrictive even for a stock ct9 and hi-flow/hybrid ct9 are there any dyno graphs for these turbos, specs, etc? again, there is not a lot of information to go here so its hard to make an informed decision may be just a regular hybrid ct9 could be investigated if they have that option, these work nicely on the 4efte once you are not chasing crazy hp number and want a nice daily driver. if going anything td04l, i'd suggest you get a full td04l set up (manifold, d/pipe, td04l wit
  13. is it possible to swap the entire 4efe throttle body over to the 4efte manifold as a direct bolt on?...if so, that may save you some trouble
  14. can you ream out the holes on the bracket a bit to give you tome wiggle room?
