Since I had two of these TRD close-ratio transmission kit, I am installing one onto my IS200.
This will fix the long 3rd gear which definitely helps much on my peaky 3S-GE.

Manifolds can definitely be very light and very strong just need to use the right material and good design. The stainless they use on aftermarket ones tends to be just entry level 304 which is nowhere near strong enough to hold up on a race car.

This car is so swee! I now want a race car So bad!

I have found out one of TRD gear set has some flow after I sold other set. :cry:
I still opened up the transmission and replaced all synchro + seals because 3rd gear synchro was not smooth.

TODA 3S-GE exhaust manifold has been modified to fit into LHD too.
Extra power + weight saving!

Never stop modding! :)

Finally installed proper air filter.(ITG)
I had to use shorter velocity stacks(50mm) from Techno Toy Tuning.
Image

Image

Image

Image



Installed SuperPro steering gearbox bushings, to get rid of slight steering play.
Definitely big improvements!

Had some blow-by-gas issue with certain tracks, so installed Mishimoto's baffle oil catch can.

Installed SuperPro sway bar bushings.
Stock bushings were toasted.

AND...
Below are the last photos on the street before I un-register the car.
The road regulation is quite tricky in Korea.
We need to get approval from KARA(FIA certified organization) to properly get rid of plates, and be free from road regulation. >:)
That's the only way for us to keeping the "race car"
The process quite complicated and costly, but we did it.

Since it is no longer "street car", I am going to go little more aggressive on setting up the car.
So..... Season 2 starts!! :)

Since we decided to widen the rear too, we picked up the new wheel.
It will be matched with KUMHO V720 265/35R18. Square set-up of course.

Luckily, since I have close friend who is professional driver, I had a chance to let him to drive my car same day.
After about 30 min test session, he went out for the best lap.
My current best lap is 1:31.5 while he was able to run 1:30.1!!!

Here is in-cam vid of the comparison lap.
