Building my lad a gen7 track toy

Recommended Posts

So , I got fed up having to share seat time with my lad .

I decided to look for another yellow gen7 for him in keeping with team colours.

A 1999 ss11 came up for sale not too far away at a reasonable price. Body has no rot but isn't the tidiest in the paint department.

Problem was that the guy had bought it to do an mr2 2zz swap so this meant it was minus the engine,gearbox,ecu and a few other bits.

I later found out that it was originally fitted with the trd lsd from the factory and that the guy had only given a grand for it The jammy sod.

Anyway long story short

I fitted my old 2zz ,stage 2 cams,cwx oil pump,morosso sump , competition clutch lightweight flywheel and my mate Dave Traviss gave me a lightly used ACT clutch,legend.

I fitted this along with a second hand box and an import ecu from an auto. Runs great but throws an eml due to ecu being from auto but not too fussed about that tbh.

My lad has bought a set of bc coilies and I've ordered an ally under tray.

Should make a cracking track car being the superstrut and having a fairly free revving engine with the cams and flywheel.

Still not quite finished as there has been no rush but she's getting there. 

Hopefully will be out on track this year

Fingers crossed he isn't quicker than me

Coilies are fitted.

Undertray arrived today from a group buy.

I've bought a new ally rad and trd thermostat but awaiting delivery.

This is purely to replace the ageing standard rad before it fails.

After finding the ac doesn't work we have decided to remove the compressor and condenser to save a bit of weight so I need to find a new,shorter aux belt.

There was an issue with higher revs, changed out the maf and she really does sound sweet now.

My lad is looking for some better wheels with a decent offset so we don't have to use spacers ,if anyone knows of any give me a shout please.

Also looking for a jdm ecu from a manual car as my lads not happy seeing an eml constantly.

Will post up some pics when I've given it a wash
