Now I believe the car needs a better set of rims and size 18" and I was thinking the following:

:lol: Works are the original. Rotas are the cheap copies. Someone needs to study up on their JDM wheels

18"x9 all round will look good

Hi, I have not done much to my car lately due to a lot of work lately. Well it is time to continue feegling with my car. I got an HKS hybrid sport oil filter. The reason I got this filter and not an OEM is due to the Mocal oil cooler kit I have on my car. The sandwich plate does not leave a lot of room to fit an OEM toyota oil filter, so I went to the HKS solution since the height is 65mm which is much less than 80mm of the OEM. I hope this filter will fit otherwise I have to fit an oil filter relocation kit.

Next part in the list of upgrade was a steering rack and pinion bushing kit. My car has 128000km so I believe oem bushes will need replacement and the polyurathane bushing kit will improve handling and last longer.

Did a service today to the car. Changed the oil and fitted new Torco SR-1 oil. Also fitted the new short HKS oil filter. As you see from the pic the space is limited with the sandwich plate so there is no other option than fit this size of filter.

I am collecting all the necessary parts this period in order to go for the upgrade. Hopefully next month I will have everything and go for more power.

Well today I did some work on the TTE inlet pipe. The aluminium ring which holds the water injector was welded on the pipe. Initially a hole was drilled at the diameter of the water nozzle. I chose this position because I have the TTE air box and this was the best place to fit the nozzle. Also as you see from the pictures I took it is near as possible to the throttle.

Lately I have been reading a lot about the water/methanol system and I found out that many many have installed nozzles on the inlet of the roots supercharger. Increasing the boost of the Eaton supercharger the heat of the compressed air also increases so water/methanol injection kit at the supercharger inlet is a very good method to cool down the compressed air. So I will be fitting two nozzles. One on the 175cc nozzle at the supercharger inlet to cool the air and one a 60cc nozzle just before the throttle. I am not using a bigger nozzle because I will over quench the air which is no good.
