Just got a few more parts for the car. Since I have a new TRD cluth and a lightweight flywheel waiting to be fitted I found that both parts would work better with an APP direct clutch line, so I ordered one from Japan:

I also got a set of Megan Racing Toe bars to adjust the camber of the rear wheels. After fitting the coilovers and lowering the car the camber of the rear rims was negative and could not be further adjusted with the oem toe bars. So I got these bars which have a bigger angle of freedom to play with the camber.

Hi again, just wondering does the quick shift lever give noticable difference / response in going up and down the gears? As i have that on my want list but looking for feedback as to its use first.
2nd, where did you get the custom gauge pods from? as again that is something i will be needing at some point (need my car and a SC first though lol - but then it will happen).

p.s. looking forward to the clutch & flywheel being installed, would love to know the difference in weight and acceleration from first :)

once again, lovely car, and thanks.

Hi Ian, the quick shift gives a better feeling during gear change and the travel of the shift change has decreased about 50%. Also there are no hitches during gear changes or noises from the gear box. It has to find a C's short shift but you can easily get a TRD which has the same quality.

Regarding the gauge pod i mde it on my own. I will write a review once the new lightwieght flywheel and clutch have been fitted

One more part added to the list. I just got a Jun lightweight flywheel to complete the drivetrain upgrade.

You notice any difference with the braided clutch line? I've got a TRD one sitting in the cupboard that I've yet to fit. Cars coming along nicely, surprised you've got anything left to mod :wink:

Hi mate. I have not fitted the APP clutch line yet. I am waiting for the Jun flywheel to arrive. It is currently on its way to Greece. I will let you know though once it is fitted on the car. I have a few more parts in my list, which I hope to have them soon.

Well I am back home again and modding has started after a pause of 5 months. Today I install the clear crystal fog lights on the boot.

I believe they look much better than the oem red lights. Next mod in the list is to fit on Tuesday the Supra brakes.
