    Put the pics up! Probably best the keep the car road legal, at least you can use it then. Allowed up to around a 2.4l engine with a turbo. The barra is probably one of the hardest conversions to choose for this car, it can be done but as above post plenty of easier options.

    Nice work, nice old rola out and about. Not sure if this is what you mean, i have polished a fair few plastic headlight lenses, they come out like new. Same process as polishing wheels really. Sand with course paper 120 grit dry if they are bad enough to need it, or finer if they not too bad. Then work down to 800 wet. Then use buffing compound for 2 pack paint and a sander/buffer with foam pad for paint, coarse compound then fine grit, they come out like new.

    Lol yep would love to! Just went to jamboree a week or two ago was pretty awesome and inspiring, maybe even an unpredictable change to the car coming in the distant future will see.

    Cheers, tech is for the bracket of 10.5 to 8.5. Modern cars with 4 wheel disk and an airbag can go 10.0 without tech though. Parachute required at 140 mph so i won't need that for a little while yet.

    Thanks mate, 38 amps, start around 28 if you're still getting the hang of it as you need to move quick at that level. I run a short tungsten and short back to get in the tighter spots, need a decent helmet mostly as it still needs to work in awkward pistons half blocked.

    While i have the engine out of the car i decided it's time to fit the scatter shield to the gearbox. No chance, no room. My tunnel is stocko except for the bellhousing area that was slightly modified. So yeah the right time to create the clearance required while the motor is out. So that's where I'm up to.

    Yep thankfully the piston is fine, a bit of scuff on the sides because of the disintegrating bearing below it, but no damage as a result of the broken ring. Will be fine to go back in with a new set of rings. On closer inspection of the crank its definitely no good. So i pulled one from a spare motor tonight, will measure it up and see if out needs a grind.

    So i broke it at powercruise. Was pumping oil into the catch can and filling it up really quick. Didn't realise and probably ran the sump dry a bit. Found oil catch was full, emptied it, and it filled again within about 10 or so power hits. Started knocking and i put out on the trailer. Pulled it down this week it spun a bearing. Pulled the pistons, broken ring on number 2 due to not enough ring gap, as i added boost recently things got a bit tighter. Also should have stepped up to a 7 heat range plug as i added boost, the heat on the 6 plugs was 4 threads when i pulled them. Was correct on 25psi but should have gone to 7s for the extra boost. My bad. So... will fix the scuffing in the bottom end, grab some new rings and gap them better this time, fit 7 plugs, wack it back together and add some more boost. Also purchased a gtx3576 gen2 last week, so should be 100+ hp higher on the same boost. I put it on the dyno at powercruise while i was there, did 400+hp on the first pull, added boost and it climbed power faster but ran out of spark and broke down. Was running .6 plug gap, will gap the plugs down to .45 from now on to give it more room.

    It won't need a rack conversion with the right sump. Missing a gt42 on the parts list, if you gonna have a v8 corolla it may as well be fast.

    He's tuning my brothers car tomorrow at 10am, thinking will probably get him to tune my car in the future with the new turbo.
