Re: Keeping it simple and stupid.

So, its been a while since I logged on here and I realized this was a sh*tty way to end a thread. The car didn't just sail away into the sunset ... I ended up selling it to a good buddy of mine here at work. His name is Ryo, real big into drifting in Japan, and is working here in the USA for a year....

Re: Keeping it simple and stupid.

You will have to pull the engine so you can "V" notch both sides of the crack. Find a weld shop that does cast iron and has Nickelcast rod. Welding cast iron requires a very clean surface and pre-heating before welding. Do you have or are you using the engine to trans brackets that tie th...

Re: Keeping it simple and stupid.

After the tune I began driving it around town, slowly breaking the car in. I noticed the AFR values would sweep full rich to full lean, back and forth constantly, so much that you could literally feel the car bucking. This was only at partial throttle too. At idle or wide open throttle, the values w...

Re: GR Corolla

I wouldn't mind owning one, but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. If I do, it would be solely for the motor to do something stupid with!

I think it will sell like crazy once its officially released. I'm just glad Toyota is finally making cool cars again.

I would prefer new shocks, but then again I doubt anywhere/anyone will send me new stuff just to test Lmao. The purpose of this little experiment is just for fun (because I'm a big nerd). You can still infer some good information from the raw data though. For example TRD Blue shocks are a twin tube ...
