I couldnt believe the speed of mine when i got it - mine will also comfortably do 60 in second gear- and i had it up to 120mph in fifth the other week - (on private road of course :ph34r::rolleyes: )

I felt like she would have gone past this but my tyres arnt up to it so i didnt push it

They are very nippy for a N/a - standard i think they push 122 bhp - have you had yours on the rollers since doing the mods? :bookworm:

Yep its like a women the more miles on the clock the looser they get prob going ta go bang soon but then i can just rebuild with loads of goodies

Controversial!!! :yes::lol:

My 4A-GE in my old Corolla GTI was running perfectly when I scrapped it on 179,000. They'll run forever if they're looked after!
