Yesterday I installed the new uprated engine mounts. Fitment was easy. The OEM engine mounts were not damaged although I thought that they might have been warn after so many years and especially the last two with the last supercharger upgrade. So first conclusion is that OEM engine mounts can handle safely 250bhp. Now regarding the new engine mounts, after fitment and driving home I noticed that the during aggresive gear changing there are no kich from the engine transferred in the cabin. I could fill this kick many times with the OEM mounts and this gave the impression that the mounts were damaged. The cons from the uprated engine mount is at engine idle. A very small vibration is transferred to the cabin. This is due to the harder rubber of the new mounts.

Good to hear they are good, I fitted the first prototype ones to my freinds is200 turbo but he's still doing the wiring so don't know what they feel like but they fit and look great, they also have a g/box mount.

A couple of pictures of the Denso injectors. These injectors have 12 holes and not 4 like others do, which provides superior atomization and improved engine efficiency according to Denso.

Also I uploaded a couple of pics of the belts I purchased for the 160mm pulley for anyone who wants to know the size.

I got the car back from the exhaust garage. I took also some pictures before it was lowered from the uplifter. First impression is that the noise is a bit different. Not so tin noise like before, but more aggressive. I have not tried to see if there is improvement in performance since there was heavy traffic jam on the route to home.

Another set of parts arrived today. Stainless steel parts from the sport model. Today or tomorrow I will also collect the steering wheel.

I just collected the new steering wheel. It is an OEM carbon steering wheel that is sold as an accessory part for the Altezza in Japan. It is version with the black leather and red stitches. As you can see it is not the TRD steering wheel I mentioned a few days ago. The seller could not ship me the part because it is forbidden in UK to post air bags. So I got a refund and bought instead this steering wheel, which I believe it is much better looking and lighter.

Installed the carbon steering wheel today and it looks fantastic, I love it.

The weight of the new steering wheel is almost the half of the one I had on it. Big difference in weight and the feeling is also good during driving
