Re: is there any turbo and supercharged tezzas in ireland?

you could pretty much buy another Altezza for that... probably would not be as bad if you started with a TOM's 280T and bought a Blitz supercharger... or maybe we could all have some car washes and bake sales to raise funds and supercharge Robin's Altezza? his is at the point where it could take tha...

Re: bootlid question??

the number plate goes on the rear boot, which is the same on IS200/IS300 and the Altezza.
the front bumper, however, is different for the Altezza.
I was actually thinking about getting an IS front bumper, and making my plates the long Euro style.

Re: weight in boot for dyno run

at speed the aerodynamics and wings/spoilers create down force to keep the back end stabilized.
when the car is stationary (as on a dynamo meter) this down force is absent, hence the weights,
or three dudes sitting in the boot.

Does anyone have an idea why? maybe they h...

Re: Hi All Not quite an Altezza Owner but not far off

DO NOT PUT LOWERING SPRINGS ON STOCK DAMPERS! the guy who owned mine before me did this, and it ruined the dampers, tires, and eventually my stock catalytic converter. i ended up replacing my whole exhaust system, and installing coil overs, plus an alignment (full geometry) to remedy the fiasco. do ...
