Ok as I mentioned last week I attempted to install the new Supra brakes but at the end of the day we found out that I need it spacers. So I managed to get a set of 5mm spacers from my mate and today we fitted the brakes. Here are some pics I took during fitment.

During driving I did not have any problems with vibration from the steering after fitting the spacers at 100, 120 and 150 km/h. So I am happy with my new brakes. I have not tried to brake hard yet to see the difference since I have do some km with normal braking so the pads and disks get to know each other.

Ok as I stated above, a few hours ago I installed the flywheel and clutch kit. And what can I say. I am speechless. This mod is a MUST if you have a supercharger. The car has totally transformed. You can feel the power of the car going to the road and of course it leaves you with a big smile. The acceleration is something else. Lightweight flywheel, upgraded clutch kit, supercharer kit and short shift kit is a must for a Lexus IS200. Now on the road the clutch is a bit more hard to press to change gears but i got used to it very fast. Also it is to drive in traffic. The car does not kick when i start from stop and also during reverse-parking. I can only say now that the clutch now engages from almust the start and not half way of its travel.

Here are pics during installation:

Thanks lad. The charger is a bolt-on kit. No necessary mods required.

Just being back from the garage. I changed the differential mounts, which appeared to be nakared, and the clutch line with the APP high pressure line. The new differential mounts made a big difference. The car does not kick so much when pushing or leaving the gas pedal. Now regarding the high pressure clutch line i have not seen any differences yet...

As I mentioned a few days ago, I am looking for uprated bushes for the front suspension system. Well I fell into these parts.

What do you think? Is it worth having them? I think they are just oem parts painted red with uprated TRD bushes.

Well I found out today that the TRD link parts are made to order so I decided to just go for the TRD bushes.

Just ordered the following bushes. Hopefully I will have them next week.

Wow dude you done a lot since I last checked your thread! Your car is turning out to be one incredible build (not that it isn't already)! Looking forward to what you do next :)
