    Not yet dude. Need to run down the current ditch finders before messing with power. They are lethal in the damp. Scrabbling for grip in 3rd

    Funds are going on getting the SX back to toy spec, so the Dai won't be getting a Celica head and T28 anytime soon

    Going to pull off the 70s graphics in the next few days while the weather is dry and cold. Make way for something new, ultra-geeky and genius

    Also just ordered the bits for the Car PC which you can follow on my thread over in the electrics forum


    On another note of fail. Changing a stop/tail bulb. Why you so hard to work on little car!

    Couple of people who didn't see the car at the Weekender have asked me to make some vids of it, here is a short vid showing some real world mid range acceleration.



    Will post a better one up soon though

    Been given a tuning plan to get the little guy up to 180hp by a dude who has tuned his to be the most powerful K3VET in russia.

    Anyone got an AFC and a set of 1jz injectors lying around?

    I knowwws. So tempting but S14 rescue takes priority on the spends.

    In other news. Just dropped the Dai at Smoody's for some bodywork TLC

    Juice, I have had 38mpg out of it with mostly careful driving.

    Auto box is fine with the tiptronic override. The tiptronic plays things on the safe side a little by not letting you shift down too quickly under braking, but this is no DSG box by an means I have had loads of autos and this is one of the best

    Little update. De rust is complete. Just need to get the old and new paintwork to the same standard, then onto phase 2. Ooh, set of green stuff up front and it actually stops now

    Yeah dude. They bite great now they have cleaned the discs up a bit. I reckon smaller non-turbo pads were fitted previously as these contact a lot more of the disc
