Ep91 Toyota Starlet Sportif (turbo Conversion In Progress)


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

thanks....all the exausts that i have seen for the starlet have included a big muffler, would the sound drive me mad?? and where would i get one that has a reasonable sized muffer?

yes it can be a pain when all you wanna do is drive home after a long day, but other times the sound is just what you need. hks do a silent power exhaust system if you're after a more quiet exhaust.

Also if i get suspension lowered...sould i just get the lowering springs or the whole suspension, and would the ride be too hard to drive on an everyday basis? and would you recommend specific brands and where to get them 4rm?

get the dampers too, lowering on standard dampers moves them out of their effective operating range and ruins the ride and handling. i would recommend tein springs with koni dampers. alternatively, look at coilover kits.

the mr2 seats in the starlet...do they fit in easily?

if you're handy with a welder it's not a massive job :)

I want to get an air filter, do you have any reccomendations...K&N?? shall i go for a universal one, because i can't find one specificly for the starlet.

K&N is fine, or others like the apexi power intake i think it's called. i was originally using a pipercross. honest opinion is go for a panel filter though, to retain the cold air feed.

The car dosn't have a rev counter, is there anywhey i can get one eg: taking instrument cluster from the glanza maybe??

best bet is to find the cluster from a starlet SR. there is a wiring guide on uk starlet club . com (without spaces)

on your car it has bike style number plates on it...is it just a direct replacement?

the plates are import sized and are direct replacement :)

Last thing where did you get the laguna splitter 4rm?

eBay, but check your local scrapyards first

where can i get the'JDM Crystal Headlamps', and the 'sr clocks'....for the clocks im looking for sr's that are breaking, but there aren't much.

the headlamps i can't find anywhere!! help!!

and by the way im getting kyb shocks with cobra spring lowering 30mm, and a k&n panel filter

im not getting the 4efte conversion yet because i just passed my driving test, and i need some experience before driving a 133+bhp car. also i wont be able to pay for the petrol...ill get it in a year or two.
