  1. Happy Birthday dawesy!

  2. not got mine fitted yet but i have it set at 0.5bar and a 50/50 water methanol mix, take care with methanol though its nasty stuff. 10ml is enough to kill you !!
  3. not had it on track yet but it seems to handle really well, a million times better than the rolla ever did. strange feeling as you feel the rear pushing out when you punch it out of a corner. theres always day trips for visits :D
  4. lol. not really been doing much to mine other than enjoying driving it really, though i must get the fuel cut sorted, boost is spiking at 2.5 bar and its really doing my head in as it makes full throttle acceleration in 4 th and 5 impossible. was at CAE at the weekend, had chance to get someone to video it on a straight national speed limit road, was really bumpy though so i had to lift. glad yours is coming on well though, be good to see what 1.6-1.7 bar is like :D
  5. in the engine compartment on the passenger side you'll see the coolant cap (looks like a normal rad cap) check that coolant is visible there. also check the overflow bottle (next to the fuse box in the engine compartment) this is harder to see so a piece of wire dunked in should hep you see the level easier
  6. as already said, what an awesome meet. the Best CAE to date (not that any of the previous have been anything other than superb) thanks to les and anne for their impeccable organisation and time ian, michelle and nick for their amaizing hospitality, opening their home to 50 odd car owners is brave. and all that were there to make it a special meet. cant wait for the next one now.
  7. trust me it really is easier to take the engine out. there are some bolts that are near impossible to remove with the engine in and the gearbox/transfer box weigh nigh on 90-100KG. tis a shame your so far away as i could do it for you for a reasonable price. clutch depends on the power/use of your four. if you are running upto 1.1bar on a stock turbo/ internals then a std toyota clutch is fine. if you want something a little stronger then the exeedy organic is very good
  8. the fan switch is on a fail safe system, simply unplugging it will cause the fan to come on.
  9. cant wait to see the results ;)
  10. moved to avensis section as you may get a better response
  11. look around and get the O2 sensors from else where they can be had for about £60 each

    there is a name for this kind of thing.................................................. natural selection. i believe it is good for these people to remove themselves from the gene pool
  13. possible it is thinner glass (look at the difference between front and rear door glass to see my point) if she can get the screen changed for a genuine one under her insurance (doesnt affect premiums over here not sure about where you are)
  14. a lot is down to pad material. i suppose you're not complaining about the effectiveness of the brakes? because the brakes are good it means the pads are more aggressive and will wear out the discs quicker. you could always not use the brakes and put the money saved t'ward body repairs :D
