  1. It's the same belt for all the auxiliary items such as alternator etc. I would recommend doing every three years but as per all aux belts they do wear. When changing check your alternator fixings as this is also something that can go wrong on these cars.
  2. Alright mate, this is normal. it is the supercharger engaging. mine has done it ever since I've had it and I believe they all make this noise.
  3. There are very few off the shelf exhausts, so go custom. Fensport has bits and bobs for the cars though not much. Se7en motorsports also specialise in 2zzge engines although he mainly deals with the celicas. Monkey wrench racing over in the USA have lots of bits though you will have to pay $$$ to get them shipped over here.
  4. It's pretty straightforward, there is all the info you need on 2zzge.com, just look there under the compressor bits and the guide is in there. You can only buy the "oil" in 1l bottles and comes in at around £80 but it is worth having just for the peice of mind as if the supercharger goes then you'll be looking at a £2000+ bill. The oil is meant to last the life of the car but after reading about horry stories on here i decided to check mine. It was fine but i changed it anyway, it doesn't take much of the "oil" when refilling. This is the link http://2zzge.com/library/Corolla%202ZZGE/TTE%20Compressor/Corolla%20SC%20Oil%20level%20check.pdf But i have downloaded and printed nearly everything off this site so i have the information to hand (i'm a bit sad like that!)
  5. All these would be the same, the only additionally thing i would say is to check ur supercharger oil level, very easy 2 do but getting the "oil" is more of a challenge. Kluber supply it, there are many threads on here about it :)
  6. True but EBC's are always good :)
  7. As far as i'm aware there are no real off the shelf exhaust systems. Most people including myself go for a custom made job. You can specify exactly what you want and they will make it. As far as decatting goes some ppl do it and you will get more power than you can with any kind of cat, though you will need 2 fit a cat for the MOT. This is easily done, just make a removable section where the cat should be and put a straight through pipe until the MOT. The other issue with decatting is you EML will stay on unless you can bypass the sensors. This is beyond me hence i went for a sport cat 200 cell. I can recommend Tein setup when it come to suspension, i have the Super Street setup and its adjustable (both height and stiffness).

  9. i would like to agree about longlife, they are not great, the tips on my exhausts are showing signs of wear and i don't think that should happen for a 1.25 year old exhaust! Also there is a slight leak on one of the joins in the pipe before the back box. I would not use them. But in their defence i do believe the system sounds awesome :)
  10. Neither would i, the only other thing is possibly a hole somewhere but i would have thought that they could spot that very easily! Also what kind of air filter/induction kit do you have?
  11. No my exhaust has only 1 back box, the 2nd tail pipe goes from the back of the back box on the otherside to the back of the car. So my pipe doesn't really split. It's not how i would have done it but the system was on the car when i bought it. I would have def opted for two back boxes.
  12. Haven't got any pic or video but i have a longlife too and it is loud! Add's to the fun. I have found though if you want it to be quieter you have to tickle to gas pedal :censor: that! Doesn't just adding my baffles in the back boxes help? My design is exactly the same as the original TTE exhaust (i believe my pipes are bigger though).
  13. Not sure on the parts needed as iy's not something i've looked into. A guide by our friend NRGIZER should be helpful: http://www.nrgizerbunny.com/headunit.html
  14. Does anyone know how easy it is to change the cables that go from the shifter to the gearbox? I have had a look at all the information on 2zzge.com and it seems to indicate that i need to "1. REMOVE AIR CONDITIONER UNIT ASSY (See page 55–17) HINT: Refer to the instructions for removal of the air conditioner unit assy. 2. SEPARATE AIR BAG SENSOR ASSY CENTER (a) Remove the 3 bolts, separate the airbag sensor assy center. 3. REMOVE EXHAUST PIPE ASSY (See page 15–2) 4. REMOVE FRONT FLOOR HEAT INSULATOR NO.1 (a) Remove the 3 nuts and heat insulator No.1." Basically do i have to do all the above 1st? Now i know i should just get under and have a look but i can't today and was just wondering if any1 has done it on here. Thanks
