decided to share progress on my turbo project.
It started as 2002 Auto Altezza with some aftermarket bits.
Looked like this.
I got bored of auto and put in manual, that was easy enough + added clutch-type 2way TRD LSD.
In addition I bought Greddy turbo kit of paul c' unfinished project, which in turn came from 2.2 apexi stroker (supposedly) altezza. In February 13 I finally got around of putting it together and started the car today
Biggest job was to replace head gasket with Apexi 1.8mm one. Auto head + 1.8 gasket should lower CR to around 9.8:1 to safely run 1bar of boost.
A lot still needs to be done, but it's 70% complete.

Autobahn88 oil cooler. The last time I buy chinese sh!t! it was leaking when fitting were tightened on and needed to be rasped to fit properly. Not sure it will hold the pressure...
