Gav Missen Posted April 18, 2020 Share Posted April 18, 2020 (edited) Hi all and welcome to my build thread! This is my 98spec Glanza I have owned the car for a year and a bit and now it’s time for a forged build! the shell itself is a very clean example and fairly stock in my eyes, rough spec as follows: *Emanage blue ECU with Glanza harness and 3 bar map sensor ready to plug straight in and be mapped *Greddy profec boost controller all plumbed in HI/LO setting fully adjustable *Full stainless Japspeed exhaust inc decat *Toyosports stainless manifold has been welded *hks adjustable actuator *Big FMIC in black with all hardpiping and hot pipe *Walbro fuel pump *RRFPR *LSD gearbox no crunches or whines *VGC meister R coil overs with fully adjustable top mounts *15” super lightweight jap wheels *new lambda sensor *brakes were all replaced not to long ago *2x new bottom ball joints last week *new rocker cover and plug hole gaskets last week as was weeping Inside 🇯🇵 *Triple gauge A pillar pod with 3 gauges *Plasma glow dials *OMP deepdish steering wheel *Subaru wrx sti front seats (rear is stripped but still have the seats to put back in if needed) *Glanza front strut brace *rear 3 point strut brace with all plastics *Glanza floor mats Being a Glanza I had a few little issues along the way.. the toyo mani snapped in half literally... I did get the flange welded back on but now that’s ready for the bin it acquired an oil leak from the back of the engine which I couldn’t find and made a mess of everything as it was finding it’s way on to the alternator belt I think it was a mixture of little leaks to be honest anyone without boring anyone too much I’ve started stripping it down I took the coil overs off and gave them a clean and they came up surprisingly well here’s some before and afters I got the engine out and on the stand and as you can see it really needed a clean I then started to remove some of the paint off the block and head it had 3 layers of different colours on it! I then stripped it down to have a check on the valves and pistons crank etc luckily I have a spare gt turbo engine so can choose the best crank block head etc from each one the engine bay was covered in oil so I moved on to that with the degreaser it came up ok but still needs some more cleaning done this is where I am at at the moment just trying to find somewhere to build my forged block and do my head etc had quotes from TD and futuremotorsport if anyone has had any experience with them be great to hear or anywhere else you can recommend! The thread will go on for a while as I only have the odd day off work but will try to keep this updated, I will be looking for 300-350bhp I’m thinking td05 what do you think? cheers Gav Edited April 22, 2022 by Gav Missen Quote Link to post Share on other sites
