Well, more this weekend, but:

 

Removed sump. Installed pbms baffled sump.

 

Hooked up a smoke tester

 

Removed, repaired and reinstalled up pipe (jeeeesus what a prick of a job)

 

Drove it, it made a horrible whistle on boost 

 

Found leaky downpipe, fixed that too.

 

Found icv gasket blown out, fixed that too. Tightened up all intake clamps, no leaks, mean. 

 

Got under the car, found leaking gasket between header and up pipe, fixed that, took it for a test drive 

 

Hoooooooly craaaaaap, what a different car. So much more responsive, it sounds better, drives better, very happy 

 

Fueling is up the creak because of the leaks in the up pipe, hope to get that sorted this week. 

 

Things left to sort....

 

Cambelt

Brake caliper

Brake pads

Brake rotors

Front sway bar

Alignment

Track time

Jeez looks like you guys got a whole heap done after I left!

Will put it up in the next few days, It sounds NASTY as you hear the metal go through the rest of the box!

Right managed to put up the videos form the track day including the gear box being killed

Gave her a thorough exterior clean, did the old hogzaust (mainly as a test to see if I can stand a louder exhaust) and joined the forum! 1fe93117cf3eb3c37c9075c45efbe19a.jpg

How's the hogzaust sound? Don't think i've heard any audio clips of someone trying it with a twinscroll equal length header setup

Actually bought something for it, it's receiving a 5 puck h/d exedy clutch once I get the motivation to install it 

 

Taking a leaf from @boon's book and saying you know what F***it why not have something a little antisocial in what it realistically a toy car for me

Haha not Avondale, this would be Northwest top floor carpark. Almost always empty in the evening time so perfect for photos!

That'd be awesome if you could. Opened it up at home today to see if there was one or two but completely forgot to check what kind it was before going out

Well the remote battery worked sweet. But in typical fashion the low speed clunks have returned with a vengance so gonna spend he nice sunny queens birthday sunday pulling things apart to work out where the heck it's coming from. 

New front inner CV boots are definately on the menu along with a heap of new OEM bushes which should be turning up from partsouq next week. Figure for what they cost I might as well just do the majority of them with OEM ones, anything should be better than the 130k km old current ones

Added an extra horn to my car last week - pretty loud now lol 

 

new: Stebel Nautilus Compact 

20170522_181350_zps7z8l1hib.jpg

 

Made a small mounting bracket

Next was to remove front bumper to access the OEM horns (was way easier than I thought it would be)

I made a fool proof wiring diagram for myself

Mounted to passenger strut tower through an existing empty threaded hole

Also upgraded the horns on my mates hilux - got rid of the shitty Toyota diaphragm horns and installed a set of Subaru BL BP horns and a Stebel Nautilus Compact

Subi horns mounted on the toyota brackets 

20170527_152153_zpsllsrnuyl.jpg

 

His are louder as they both point straight out the grill - mine are hidden behind the bumper and in the engine bay 

 

Very short vid of the shitty toyota horns vs the subi horns in conj with the stebel natuilus horn
