Altezza Z-Editon

Postby donato » Sun Nov 16, 2014 10:56 pm

As some of you may have seen, the MR2 is being broken. A new job forces me to break it as i won't be able to run two cars.

However, i've gone and bought a faster car witch doesn't leak through the T-Bar!

It's a Toyota Altezza Beams Blacktop Manual - 210 BHP

Imported in 2010 so it is immaculate. No rust to be seen!

TRD Lightened Flywheel
TRD Clutch
TRD Front Under Body Bracing
TRD Rear Under Body Bracing
TRD Coolant Cap
TRD Braided Brake Lines
Cusco Front Strut Brace
Kansai Services Rear Strut Brace
HKS RS200 Super Power Flow Filter
HKS Super Header Type II
HKS Centre Pipe
Project Mu Brake Pads
Altezza Digital Cluster
Tein Street Flex Coilovers
Rays Alloy M-08 Type R 17x7J +42

Theres a couple of bits that need doing to it, but i'm too busy driving it for now :lol:

First modification to do, put it back onto Japanese plates. They improve the look of the car so much.

Then it was a case of replacing the really dirty air filter. So a new HKS Super Power Flow Filter ordered in green and fitted.

And fitted!

I also attended a rolling road day at Tuning Developments. North West Toyota specialists. I only really went because i wanted to see how healthy the engine was.

They ran man and it ran really well. 175.5bhp @ the flywheel.

I've uploaded a video to YouTube so you can see. The speedo is in MPH btw :lol:

A pretty picture to show how she's looking.

I don't want to upset you but I did dyno my altezza one week ago and she did 191.2bhp@flywheel. The figure 210 from factory is actually measured in PS not bhp, so brand new one on jap fuel should do 207bhp. Despite age and 95octan fuel she lost 16bhp which I think is still very good. There is many ways of bringing the horses back to the car, do some research on forum.

I'm not upset :D

It just seems a bit weird how it's not near factory figures!

Needs a bodykit! This is the only car I think really suits them, its just too soft standard. Love the dash with the digital Speedo n central rev counter they're awesome

Bought a few things from work today. New genuine discs front and rear. The ones fitted were badly lipped, wouldn't suprise me if they were still the original ones!

Also cleaned up the Project Mu pads whilst i was there. I wanted to know which variant they were so i know what to order when they get low.

It's just a case of bedding them in again now, but already they feel miles better than they did!

Also purchased a new bonnet stand mount for the broken one, nothing too exciting :lol:

A new modification!

New exhaust time. I've purchased a HKS Silent Hi-Power! Give it a bit of a spit polish and fitted it. Very quiet, but it's improved the mid range revs more.

Still yet to get a video of it!

I have a sneaky suspicion this is going to get a hell of a lot better ;)

Exhaust was picked up off eBay. If you keep your eye out, you'll see them creep up now and again.

So it's been a while since i've updated this. A fair bit has changed!

Up next came a set off Rota Torques 8J x 17" +45. Put them into storage for a short while whilst i saved up for some winter rubber as winter was around the corner!
