ahhhh. oh well i guess.

 

things gonna be stupid stiff anyways so hopefully wont be an issue.

 

have semi organised for a full loom engine + ecu(adaptronic) + adapter for the itbs. so once i have a fuel system organised, should be able to crank it over.

Equal length trailing arms is probley the single most effective suspension mod you can do to a corolla.

 

Why did you cut the floor though? I've never seen anyone do that to fit an r31 diff....

 

 

Also kaizen garage supplying loom/adapters?

he's alway taken his time but things have gotten ridiculous lately. i used to have respect for him, cause he's helped me immensely when i was getting my setup to work, but f**k he's taking ages. deffently wont use him again, i'd just rather pay extra and get a proper workshop to make one

 

my loom is the first original loom he ever made which jay used for his ae71.

 

i've got a second beams loom made to suit a link and im still waiting on him to finish a 2jz loom for me.

more to come, trumpets should be on their way, then start on the basic loom for cluster/starter/alternator/lights, gotta make a hand brake for the master we have, then send it off to get the front tube/tubs done.

 

but thats another day.
