  1. anything been happening in salisbury mate?

  2. I think everyone needs to meet mr water injection tank and mr filter
  3. ahhh i have them now mate, cheers for the offer though, i haven't checked the knuckle joint, i'm pretty sure its the inner tie rod joints as the knock is very well defined when you hold on to the column close to it
  4. Is it ok to run 100% water? its just if i run out of methanol at any point. I thought people usually set them to come in at the top of the boost? I may get mine to come in at just under a bar then.
  5. Water injection has been ordered, what pressure do you have yours kicking in lee? What mix are you running on it?
  6. That picture isnt of a gt4 thats a gt.... I'm in cornwall too and have gt4, ive been trying to raise dosh for help for heroes, just be prepared to no one replying to you cause i have emailed so many companies and had no response off them at all its such a pain in the *****.
  7. You should leave yours at 2.5 bar :D Its a pity i cant have an mr2 turbo, it was what i was looking for in the first place but not practical as a 2 seater but its 200kg lighter pretty much than a standard gt4. Whats it like on track i have heard the chassis isnt the greatest but its mid engined so its always going to be decent. Can't believe im away from all the action down here :S
  8. ahhh leeky you git i was looking at them. Same name on the OC you should know me i'm an afghan vet as well haha 420bhp around 400lbs/ft of torque at 1.4bar for now.
  9. Whats everyone been up to guys, you got a project thread lee, anymore vids? I need to change the inner track rod ends on my car cause they are knocking like hell so much play in them, just a bugger they cost 60 quid each: Going to change the power steering pump cause when you park next to a wall or car so you can hear the sounds of the pump when you turn the wheel it sounds like a steam train.
  10. Good write up, good work, unfortunately you can't satisfy everyone, don't worry about the moaners hopefully this will help many people.
  11. Good call on the actuator, i wouldn't say its the turbo as you would really know about it. Before checking the actuator i would go through the basics and check all hoses for splits/leaks. Might be worth checking your car for error codes aswell, you can find out how to do this here www.gtfours.co.uk amazingly helpful site

  13. Well went to see Ryan G today at surrey rolling road, was an hour late due to hunderford being market day and roadworks. The day started terrible i had to knock a gasket for the turbo up as mine new one had not come, really was a rush and i just thought its only going to get worse................ but it didnt ryan started mapping it, and the hp started steadily increasing. He was very impressed with the AFR's out the exhaust he said they were quite steady, fuel was good and it spooled well, so atleast i did something right. Anyway we got we got 420bhp at the flywheel, approx 326 at the wheels i think, it would have been higher but the spring in the wastegate wasn't strong enough to hold the boost. So once i get a new spring it will be going back to him to be mapped to 1.6bar. There's still work to do on her though so may keep her at 1.4bar while i add my tweaks here and there. You can tell the turbo has not come alive at this pressure after being in dawseys and other peoples cars plus some hearsay i know around 1.7bar the turbo goes mad. Its damn quick but not lethally quick if you get me. 3rd gear is just stupidly good We just printed this graph off as it was getting hotter so little less power than the vid On the dyno, 420bhp Me dicking around afterwards, really sorry i didn't realise i was holding it cockeyed :S, hit some VERY sudden crests and car jumped up quite a bit, loved it Can someone edit the title so it says mapping page 46, i can't see how i would do it
  14. Was kind of hoping some other toyota people would be up for this, be good to have a few models coming along.
  15. Haha i know all this leeky, 610bhp? that must be sonic with the blue 205??? Yeh he's a regular track day drive so i doubt i will need to go for 8:30 but 9 minutes is possible, just about, i think haha. I know what you are saying mate but its for charity and you have to push things otherwise wouldn't be a challenge and as stupid as it is, if i did die i'd be doing something i loved. Really i'm the only one going for 9minutes, the other 2 probably have better driving experience but its my car at the end of the day and if anyone is going to wreck it i'd rather it be me. You should come leeky, got possibly another 2 gt4's coming at the moment. Here's my spec list by the way: ECU - APEXI POWER FC WITH HAND COMMANDER - THIS WILL BE GETTING MAPPED ON 6TH JULY BY RYAN FROM 2BAR TUNING, SHOULD BE LOOKING AROUND THE 450BHP AT 1.6BAR, WILL UPDATE ONCE MAPPED.

  16. Charity Page - http://www.bmycharity.com/nurburgringchallenge2011 Right guys i'm doing a Nurburgring charity run for help for Heroes in October. Everything goes to charity as you can see on the website you can donate online which makes things a lot easier. I'm hoping to push this around the car forums a lot so if you are part of another forum can i ask you please would you post this up, it would be much appreciated. Only started this up the not so long ago but i am starting to push the advertising as i am off work this week and have time to contact people and companies, see what i can sort out. In case you don't know what Help for Heroes is about there is a brief description at the bottom of the charity page or you can simply go here www.helpforheroes.org The challenge we are undertaking is to get round the nurburgring in 9 minutes or under but we are all novices of the Nurburgring. You can start to see now why it is a bit challenging however if we discover we have amazing driving skills and manage to nail 9 minutes early on then we are going to push it to 8 minutes 30 seconds. I hope everyone who reads this will decide to donate, its a fantastic cause as i'm sure many of you know already. We will be getting footage of us on the track so you guys see if we do it or crash out. Thanks to everyone who donates in advance and please help us spread the word of the event. Mike PS - Anyone who wants to come along you are most welcome.
  17. Not long not long :D:D:D:D
  18. Supra lump would be good as you don't need to forge it to have huge power, think you can go to 700hp before you have to think about changing internals.
  19. John you need to make that car 4wd or put the engine in the back like lee was doing, do it do it do it
  20. ahhhh i like it, im trying to do that get the little black bits like spoiler blocks, spats etc to match up. Fortunately the black mesh i've put at the front works a treat for this. Post whatever you want mate its a long enough thread anyway haha. Right well went exploring today and went to lizard point most southerly place in britain, just beautiful. This ecu idles my car perfectly i love it, its nice crusing around staying off power especially today as i was hungover to hell was drinking until 6am, to be honest i shouldn't have drove cause i was proper in a trance. Oh i put my uprated crush tubes in yesterday aswell, they were ****** the old ones. Bit of a tricky job, more awkward if anything but we smashed them in. Heres my old ones Put my other front brake pad on as my brake caliper pins turned up, right pain it was as the blade on my junior hacksaw was made of chocolate so i had to file through them with a round file. Used stud extractors to loosen them up, just a pain such a stupid thing to hold you up. Also we found where the knocking is coming from when you turn the wheel at very low speeds or at a stand still, its the steering rack front control rods, the things the track rod ends screw on to. Bit **** as they are 65 quid each and i need both of them :S Sorry about my accent at the start of the video, my mate is from essex so i always do it
  21. Ok sorted my browser, is the mr2 finished then lee? You know on trackdays, can you have as many drivers as you want or can you pay extra, was thinking of taking my old man round. Also might be doing nurburgring at the end of the year.
  22. Right just did a couple of jobs, put the riser block infill stickers and took the standard ecu and mounting brackets out, had a quick look inside the standard ecu.
  23. <the spuds of lurrrrvve>s did you just post a vid cause i can't see it, you got the link?
