Looking good, look forward to seeing more

Cheers!  On the way :thumbsup:  The Mrs. and I are taking a weekend roadtrip up to Hakone this week, so I'll have fresh pics from the Turnpike and maybe a sound byte with my new Blitz intake.

Ayup! Is that a Daihatsu Cuore Avanzato TR XX in the background!

 

Car is looking fab!

Thank you, sir!  And it may well be...I honestly don't remember that specific car very well, but it does appear to be a Mira/Cuore of some description...

Cool Glanza, looks the spitting image of what mine was when I first got it 10 Years ago! Mine came over with RSR springs too.

Any chance you know the part number for the RSR springs you fitted? (May get another set).


Thanks

Thank you!  According to the box, they are T005D's.  They're just the basic RSR DownSus springs, though, not the fancy Ti2000 ones.

New intake is on!!  Please forgive the dirty engine bay...work's been busy and it's been rainy lately, so I haven't had the chance for a proper rubdown of things.

Very much looking forward to roadtripping tomorrow and seeing how she sounds.  Side note/question: should I do anything like disconnect then reconnect the battery to reset the ECU or anything?  Seemed to be running a little bit rich on startup, although that could also just be that I haven't driven in a while.

Next step is going to be trimming down the factory airbox snorkel so it doesn't rub, then reinstalling it to keep a cold air feed to that area.  In the future I'll be mocking up a heatshield template in cardboard, then properly putting it together with 2mm aluminum sheet.

You had better luck than I did, hahaha.  Googling in Japanese got me as far as the name, and that's about it.  Well unfortunately, my attempt at an intake will be nowhere near that nice, but we'll see what pans out :thumbsup:

In other news, pictures from my weekend in Hakone!  Great weather and great sounds from the BOV through the new intake that were making me giggle like a little girl on the highway the whole way home :lol:

Thank you!  Hakone is a really great place - nothing but twisties for dozens of k's in any direction :D

Agreed, I need to get myself to the Japland for sure!

Highly recommended!  Never know what you might see!

By the way, just for fun, here's a bit of a sound clip of the new intake!  Apologies for potato quality.

New snaps!!  Went back to Hakone with the Mrs. and her sister yesterday to see the last of the cherry blossoms on the Toyo Tires Turnpike.  Perfect weather and a great drive, with the notable exception of the horrific expressway traffic back into the city. 

Cannot WAIT to get my bonus paid out in July so I can finally get a new exhaust fitted...any opinions on Fujitsubo Legalis R vs. HKS Silent Hi-Power regarding "sounds good, but won't drone you to death?"
