  1. Or I think Mondeo is another good option for 2 speed fan that pump lots of air and should be easy PaP fodder
  2. Fancy hilux at work has this but it gets confused by two 10kph signs right next to each other and says your good for 110kph
  3. Bash plate plus custom sump that is wide and high? Mod pickup to sit closer to the crank and add big wings to keep oil capacity up so you get more metal to road clearance?
  4. Did the same with my emission spec import hiace. Got a carb off a NZDM hiace bolted straight on. Blocked off excess vac ports and ripped out all the gubbins/solenoids. Didnt worry about the dizzy. Powered up the auto choke clock spring thing and it worked perfect off the bat. Ran way nicer with better economy, would start and idle fine with the idle dropping back as it warmed up.
  5. Nah in napier for training for the next week and a half Enjoying some doggin with @TimShadboltfan27 instead
  6. Pretty sure the coolant loop for the TB is only for stopping it freezing up in cold temps. Have you cleaned the IASC? Even abit of carbon on the barrel will get it sticking and making it idle high. They dont run a cold start injector like earlier motors so its really up to a wiring problem or a sticking IASC. I remember @Spencer saying they needed a voltage signal after key off to reset the IASC otherwise they did the mischief your talking about or something similar
  7. Perfect accompaniment https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/marketplace/gaming/pc-games/strategy-puzzle/listing/3596563464?bof=By9rxp2Y
  8. Mod powers incoming, you should be able to edit it soon and get all dem mod benefits
  9. @GuyWithAviators wanna try fire things up again I can come along in my not OS corolla and regale tales of not doing any work to my OS car
  10. Much like how this car gives me a massive bulge
  11. Sounds like time for a Puerto Rico drag spec carbon bonnet with a massive bulge to fit the doorts
  12. Pipe over that machined part of the ram with a bolt thru it then weld the pipe to the wedge/go pretend you want to hire one from the hire center to have a look how they are set up
  13. Nang video hooning it on pipe plz
  14. Paging @Seedy Al hes got all the V engine knowledge or even @Mourning Cupcake to get his knowledge posted
  15. Adapt the levelers with a bolt on them so you can use a battery drill and a socket for speedy leveling
  16. Theres a guy I see commuting a burgman thing most mornings, hes always across the intersection when the lights go green before the cars have even moved
  17. Strip it down when you get it cause qc is average and so is sealing especially if using it in a marine environment plus they use sfa grease in the gearbox so pack it full of grease and goop it back up with silicone
  18. Dual batteries was a cold weather option or something Had a surf with dual batteries running 12v Was great for parties in the wops could run the stereo all night without going flat
  19. It must be a corolla thing cause my zze122 is the same Anything over half a tank the needle barely moves giving me a sense of max ecom on pertol Get to half tank and can almost see the needle moving
  20. 100% make up a bash plate, even a thick alloy one that will grind itself away instead of the gearbox. Had similar clearance issues with my townace and it had a alloy bash plate that I has a cardboard template stashed away for. Was easy to whip up a new one from a sheet of scrap when it got a bit thin Also was the box from a floor shift morse cable linkage van? Id say you need to do some fettling to the adjusters to get the column linkages talking to the box properly or if the swap with the gearbox mount setup has dropped the box down a few mm that can be enough to throw everything out of whack as I found when my gearbox mount collapsed
  21. Lexobarge IS220D sounds like a lush option but they are thin on the ground in NZ
  22. Suggestions on late model deez manuals that wont freak out when it has a "speedo fault" By late model I mean anything post 2000 so it gets yearly wofs
  23. 7 months(ish) til this years gravel eating adventure Time to build some froth
