    I got it done by a mate from spare material. If you interested in getting one done. Call Simon on 0414803084. He will be able to answer all your trimming question. I think it's around the $300 mark.

    My wheels, camber tops, front lip and exhaust manifold should be here this friday. if you check the first post this stuff has been a long time coming. Engine is all back in and wired just need some fuel hose and intercooler hose. I ordered a under drive pulley for the water pump and T3's new power steering arms with 2 different setting of lock and if you do the math there aren't much more coin than buying new toyota arms. The aus dollar is pretty strong atm. It should be running on the weekend if i have no more problems.

    I got some T3 steering arms because i didn't like the 4 turns lock to lock with the rack spacer. Its all running now i just need a wheel alignment. I was running a bit short on threads for the tie rod so I ordered some AJPS ends. Since i fitted the new steering arms which are thicker than normal I'm a bit short on threads for the strut bolts so i ordered some bolt that you would normal run with a 40 mm RCA.

    I have been driving it around for a couple of weeks now. The clutch is on the way out so i decided to upgrade while i had the box out. Dave at AJPS is sorting me out with the parts. A new 3.7 kg 200mm flywheel and exedy cushioned puk clutch and HD pressure plate. Just waiting on some funds. Be hoarding a few parts for the turbo setup too.

    Suede Dash





    Running lower now with some neg camber





    waiting on fund for the rest
