  1. Haha long time since I have been on here! But actually have one of these and love it!!!
  2. Yeah its the greddy one. So what happens to the one that is clipped off? What is it meant for? Also how do I know which is the MAF and which isnt?
  3. Just out of interest does the induction kit allow fitment of the wires attatched to the stock aribox? I currently have 2 'plugs' attatched to current airbox.
  4. HAHA was a joke :D Paid for it now though, so bring on two weeks :D
  5. Haha even a -40mm Yaris with 16s isnt exactly a hard ride! Ever been a Porsche or CTR :P Will stick to 195s again then, since it seems the general consensus 205s cause problems, and not much point in getting arches rolled just for a slightly wider tyre.
  6. That does look awesome! You have swayed me and im gona go down that route. According to Envy will take two weeks to get it though :( Will hopefully have it ordered by the end of the day, just waiting to hear back from Envy now, never known a company been so slow in trying to take your money
  7. I cant seem to find the greddy kit on the envy site and doesn't seem that anywhere sells a 1.0l K&N induction kit. Also does it read to you that the powertec is just a cone?
  8. Also I want to get a new filter now which out of the three is best? Pipercross K&N Green
  9. Ok gave it a go and did sound pretty cool All it did though was make me wana have a louder and deeper noise Got my housemate to drive it past but seems to make alot more noise in the car than outside. Which I guess ain't a bad thing as doesn't make you look like a chav but makes the car sound better for the driver. Also do you know the diameter of the air box inlet as im gona get a cold air feed now, and gona get a new filter since mine is mingin! Its black and has a few leaves and stuff Also where did you get those 'rings' holding the cold air feed on? (have no idea what its called as you prob guess, but if still unclear what I mean, I mean the metal brackets you have holding the pipe on)
  10. Been searching for the Greddy kit but have had no luck. Guessing its not sold anymore??? In that case any other induction kits than can be used? If not what is the best course of action with a cone and trying to get a tube to make an induction kit? Powertec Toyota Yaris Mk1 1.0 16v 04/99 - 12/05 SL1 Performance Induction Kit (the name implies it will fit since its for the Mk1 1.0 16v (ie 4cyl) from 99-05 (ie p1 and p2))
  11. Basically you can change amp settings and EQ settings on the headunit. He said I had pretty much set the amps up fine (for best sound quality and loudness, but tbh there is more in reserve but does get crazy loud ) He pretty much showed me a menu on the HU I had never seen before which allows time delay (so sounds like sound is coming from the middle of the dash (is weird as hell)). The real benefit was giving the EQ more of a flat sound ie my high frequencies were too high and I knew this but already turned tweeters down by using the jumpers in the crossover. He also turned certain frequencies up in the mids since the yaris door cards are shocking and need strengthening (I didnt fancy any more weight in my poor 1.0L). As for the sub made such a difference. Was alot deeper by just using the HU.
  12. I have a spacer and then ontop of that had to make some small bits out of wood to space it even further because the magnets are rather large. They fit perfect though as the cones stick out of where the grill was so means I could put the Alpine grill on. They sound great paired with the tweeters and cover all frequencies (however have a Type-R sub as well for lows). Also as side note Alpine are based in Coventry which aint far from my uni which means I was able to blag a free setup by Alpine. The guy said I had done a good job tuning it myself but must admit sounded a fair amount better when he had finished
  13. Its a P1 1.0l 52 Yaris and the kit is also for this car. However pipercross seems like its just the cone as well :S But as I said there is the offer on the cold air feed which could go behind grill at front??? Plus had a read online and doesnt seem to have MAF problems in other cars. Well I have enough money for new car, but for the last 6 months of ownership would be cool to have an induction kit. Plus I enjoy doing stuff to my car and got the urge to do something.
  14. How much over £100. Look at link in first post for the Powertec one (is 3rd link I supplied)
  15. Whatabout the powertec induction kit? As I said I will only car for a max of 6 months so dont wana spend much. How much is the Greddy? Link?
  16. I currently have 16" with 195/45 Toyo T1S gona get some new Toyo Rs this time round. However can I fit 205s on the front? (Rears are fine and have loads and loads of tread, but fronts are almost illegal). Please get back ASAP as I need to order tyres v soon, as I said v low on tread
  17. I use 2005 Alpine Type-Rs. However I cut the doorcard so that they could fit in But they sound great and take all the abuse I throw at them, however the 07 Type-Rs are meant to be alot better and can handle even more power
  18. Why did you change the pipercross out of interest? If you have a problem with the MAF sensor what does that entail? The Powertec does sound better does anyone else have any ideas?
  19. I had my car serviced at a Nissan garage since its really close in mid Nov. Looked at my panel filter today ands really really dirty. Now I dont know if it was changed or not when serviced but its essentially black so I guess not. Now I have seen a pipercross induction kit for £33 (excl delivery) and a pipercross induction kit for £82.99 (excl delivery). http://www.potn.co.uk/p1502443.htm http://www.potn.co.uk/p1432.htm Now which would be better. I mean for £50 it doesnt seem alot more and how easy is it to install an induction kit? However for £99 there is also this one which for another £17.99 I can fit a cold air feed kit. Is this worthwhile??? (I dont wana cut the front bumper however so anywhere else it could go??) http://www.potn.co.uk/p1544379.htm What are these kits like? Is the Powertec one the best one to go for? (As a side note will be getting a new car late summer time, just for less than £100 (well just over incl delivery) it seems a worthwhile mod to have abit of fun with.
  20. I still stand by the fact that the best quality is achieved with a headunit which is ipod compatible with an ipod adapter. I can hear no difference between a CD and mp3s from the ipod encoded at 320kbps on my hifi which has a pretty good frequency range.........but depends on how much of an audiophile you are! This also charges your ipod as you go along and displays track info on the headunit which is pretty cool Plus you can simply take the ipod out when you want, say for the gym as previously mentioned. Well thats my 2 pence :!Removed!:
  21. Well done mate Now the fun/learning begins :P
  22. LOL yeah the sub is pretty big and well my mirrors are pretty rubbish to use when the volume is up! The reason I went for such nice stuff and the 12" sub is because I will transfer it to my next car most likely! I am thinking of a facelift CTR next year since for a couple of years I will live at home after uni and comute to work.....not gona be fun living at home again but if I own a CTR then :D :D Plus my parents aren't to bad luckily! Hexa-dB like the blue dash but Im not spending anymore on the car than is necessary now (ie servicing, etc) due to the fact it is only a 1.0L and mine looks nice now so will leave it alone and wait till the next car. Although not quite sure what is going on around the cigarette lighter?
  23. Chipsaway sound pretty decent from what I have heard to be honest. XT2 that seriously sucks so much! I hate hearing things like that....almost as bad as when you see a ferrari or such getting blown up in a movie Just glad when at home I live in the countryside........when out I try to park my car away form other cars or next to nice ones. Although once I left it right at the other end of the car park at the tescos by me where there were no cars...popped in for like two seconds. Came out and there was a trolley in the side of my car which dented the drivers door.....WHY! I think it was some 12 yr olds I saw messing about with trolleys, dont see the fun in that thought at all
  24. LOL mate u need the tweeters for good sound quality which is why I have Alpine Type-R instead of JVC for example. Admitedly they could be placed better but since its a home install then cutting into the door card and inserting them there is abit scary really! Oh and with my old setup had tweeters in slightly different places which is why there is a hole next to the tweeter (step dads fault but doesnt matter) but had to show off the yaris tax disc holder Lets just say it cost a few £s :!Removed!: But got it all online from various outlets with some giving a discount and others not.....oh and got headunit with ipod adapter off ebay was the cheapest by far! Yeah much better with the new fascia, just use a screwdrive to prise it out....but lets just say not the easiest of thing but when there is a will there is a way! Same as when I was told you can't do this: ie have blue light coming from the outer air vents. Not to everyones taste but thats why it has a switch so can be turned on and off.........but yet to have someone say they are rubbish when inside the car. Even my mum thinks they are okay and she hates most mods to cars!
  25. Some basket did the following to my rear bumper: My car is 3.5 yrs old and apart from a few stone chips and a couple of dents the paint is still pretty much as good as the day I got the car! I was just wondering if there is anywhere that would repair the above and some dents on the doors for a rather cheap price but not look obvious its been reparied? Does anyone recommend anyone in warwickshire or hampshire? As I was thinking of getting it done but want some quotations really..........blatantly as soon as it gets repaired it will get damaged again :( Cheers
