Thank You very much mate! I got side skirts of You year ago and only last week sourced clips, that was some hustle.. There is some more pictures that I didn't post like for instance exedy clutch disc but I'm sure members would know that I have put all the bits and use new one :wink:

Car revs much quicker (TRD lightened flywheel), after 4k rpm some hell of a sound (HKS 4-2-1), nothing like before! I will go some stage and dyno her

that is one healthy looking tezz... take good care of her bud. I wish mine was in this state with these mods! I really like how you done the earthing kit! finally someone who did it neatly! Do you feel any difference with it??

How did you manage to get the plugs for the sideskirts??

Nice work, definately been spending some money there. If you think the Vibratechnics mounts are stiff you should try the trd ones. Is that a Vibratechnics g/box mount too?

I didnt feel much difference after earthing kit, but because I have put coulpe of things nearly same time car feels way different that was before :)

I get clips from sxe-bear. thanks again mate! without your help probably I would be without skirts couple months more..

yes it is and it's just great! standard one is very flexible. does TRD still does engine mount?

Just realised sarcasm doesn't work when you type it lol. Yes I got trd mounts from nick a couple of years ago, they are stiff as anything, loads of vibrations at idle, drives nicer than before tho.

They hold the bonnet alright. Dampers start lifting the bonnet in around 40% of it original opening amount up to 90%, then You have to help them a bit by just one finger :)
