  1. I posted this on the Toyota Blog but they havent approved it as it proves how much of a rip off the TRD GT86 is. So on top of being a rip off it goes to show that Toyota havent even got the balls to let there be freedom of speech on their blogs. So here is my post in all its glory now from one very peed off ex Toyota Owner. I hope that this information is useful to people who are considering the TRD GT86. Dont get me wrong, i want to see Toyota and the GT86 do well. But the fact that they BLOCKED my post on their blog has really got my back up now.
  2. Yeah you can remap an aftermarket ecu... but not the toyota one.
  3. Doesnt the drivers seat go all the way back until it touches the rear seats? I believe mine does.... You could remove the seat, re-drill the mounting holes and then bolt it back in further back. Or make some small adaptors to relocate the seat. Nothing off the shelf to do this job as far as i know.
  4. Now on Ebay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320986220423
  5. Hey guys, Almost two years with this car but now i need to pass the GT4 on. http://www.pistonhea...les/4239935.htm More pictures here - http://s349.photobuc...ealleeky/ST205/ If anyone is interested or knows anyone in the market for something like this then please drop me a line :) Cheers
  6. I'll eat my hat if Toyota make a new Celica. The Supra name carrys so much "Hype" from the last shape and the image that The Fast and The Furious gave it... would be foolish not to bring back the Supra. ... but the Celica......most people think of the 1.8 Gen7 when they hear the word Celica and dont think of the RWD/4WD 2.0 turbo models :( Time to let the Celica die peacefully.
  7. You cant really "drift" in a standard GT86... it doesnt have enough power. I found you can get the back end out easily with a clutch kick and feathering the throttle... but you cant keep the back end out long enough to consider it being a proper full on drift :(
  8. Nothing like the Celica. It doesnt feel anywhere near as big or heavy. The GT86 is the spiritual successor to the Corolla AE86 so a smaller model than the Celica. Toyota are working on a new sports car with BMW which could be similar in size to the Celica but most likely it'll end up being a new Supra.
  9. Standard ST205 ecu cannot but re-mapped, only piggybacked with something like a Unichip. There are some companies like Mines, Blitz, Avance and C-One who have fitted piggyback chips into standard ECU's and they give you roughly 20-30bhp depending on supporting mods. I've just sold a Blitz Access ECU for the ST205 for £400 which is the going rate of any aftermarket ECU for these cars. There is an Advance ECU for sale on ebay but i dont know how good these are. The blitz/c-one ecu's are considered the best.
  10. You cant remap Toyota ECU's (with the exception of the GT86 which apparently can be). If you run a different ECU it wont make any changes to your servicing intervals.
  11. I've decided to sell my faff so this is the first of a number of items im removing from it. Adds 20-30bhp. Straight swap with standard ECU, no wiring or messing about. ST205 specific version (part number confirms it) So will still run the charge cooler pump £400 cash (There is only one other for sale on ebay in Germany and the guy there wants £800 so mine is a bargain at half the price) Located in Reading but can post at buyers expense cheers
  12. Sorry to hear that dude. Just make sure you get a totally different unbroken engine and not a reconditioned one. As a lot of these dodgy garages that specialise in these engines (mostly in Birmingham) take your engine, stick new parts in it and then tell you it was a new recon engine. It'll only last a few months if you're lucky. They've been pulling this scam for years and not just on this engine.
  13. Oh dear.... oh dear oh dear.... Search the forum for old posts..... that engine has gone the way of the dodo my friend. Which is pretty much the fate of every 1ZZ-FE eventually... :(
  14. Good video but its not really a VS..... my italian isnt good but its just a guy with a GT4 and a guy with a GT86 out for a drive isnt it? Would have been a pretty unfair fight in all honesty if they had put them toe to toe but still good to see them out on a jolly together. Im looking forward to the Supercharged GT86 coming along as it would make a good head to head video. A few guys in the US/Japan have turbo'd GT86's now putting out near 400bhp. And then there are two 2JZGTE powered GT86's which are probably packing 600-1000bhp but they havent actually been Dyno'd yet. There is a 400bhp one with an IS-F engine too!
