Well, some tweaks are needed on the Corolla...
Started off with some uprated engine mounts.


Then I got a Bilstein B12 kit (B8's & Eibach's)





Then I decided to get a pair of under drive pully's for the alternator & water pump from Monkey Wrench Racing in the good old USA


The brakes on the T-Sport are a bit poor so I've bought a pair of 324mm discs & Megane 225 calipers that should do the job, just need to knock up some brackets & have the correct pcd hole pattern put into the discs.



I've also found out that the LSD from the MR2 6 speed gearbox is a direct fit into the Corolla box, so I'm going to pick up one of these bad boys on FridayNinja

Cool

The engine mounts are brill, had the Corolla rolling roaded a few weeks back & the engine didn't move at all, it used to shake like a s**tting dog!
Sorry about missing off the Tab packets, must try harderDoh

Driven these a few times and to be honest their awful LOL when the VVT eventually kicks in top end it doesn't really go much better just makes more noise and the gearing isn't matched with the engine properly so when you change up it's off the VVT lump again so you have to wait for it to kick in again.... Brakes aren't great and as you said it handles like a boat.

Could be nice If you throw some cash at it like your doing but from your first post you got it because your 306 is costing too much? But your throwing money at this Hmm

Hehe, if your falling off lift then you're driving it wrong, the trickiest gear change to get right is 1st to 2nd the overlap is so small that if you don't Rev it to the limit in 1st you will drop off lift going into second, all other gears are fine as things happen much more slowly.
The VVTL-I kicks in at 6200rpm & it revs up to 8200rpm, mine is at approx 140bhp at 6200 but jumps up 60bhp over the next 500 revs, it's nowhere near as forgiving as the 306 to drive but IF you get it right it's a fair bit of a weapon.
In truth I'm never happy with cars, if I had a Ferrari I'd still want to modify itNinja

Cool

It was a customers car so didn't exactly want to take it to valve bounce lol but rev'd well into the VVT and change up to be off it again wasn't massively impressed.

Something different though and somewhat of a sleeper Thumbs up

Wonder what it would go like with a rotrex on Whistle

Edit: I'm much the same with any car there's always room for improvement and always something else I want to throw money at or want to change..... It never ends LOL

Well, the B12 kit, polly castor bushes & MWR pulleys have been fitted, it actually. Drives now like it was built to go round corners, it stays nice & flat & copes with various road surfaces really well.
I'll post some pics up in a week or two when it's all had chance to settle down.
And look what arrived from Italy today!!

Sparco Drift 7 x 17 et38, can't wait to fit these, just can't afford tyres yet....
Has anyone had experience of Yokohama Advan Neova AD08's???
Cheers
Wayne

yeah, AdamB rates them higher than R888 and they are cheaper, the castle combe racers used to use them when they were plain AD08's but they're AD08R now.

I've just ordered a set of Yokohama Advan Neova AD08R's, 215 45 17 is the size I went for as its within 4mm of the 195 55 16's that come as std on the T-Sport.
It's going to be like waiting for Christmas waiting for them to turn up, grrr.

Cool

Go careful with the 215 width as they are 45 profile they may catch your shocks on the corners ?
205/40 is better ....I know it's not a 6 but just saying Wayne Thumbs up

I'm going 205/40 for that reason but mines a 6 Whistle

Don't rate 888Rs as the side walls not reinforced but the new R888Rs are & Dunlops I run which are the best you can buy arn't made in 205/40/17 sadly !!!
AD08rs are far better than 888rs but still no major updated sidewall support Thumbs down

It's all about the sidewall Whistle as well as the compound & tread pattern Whistle

Looks amazing what your doing Wayne something different Thumbs up

Well, I've just had a mad half hour.....
I've just bought a Moroso increased capacity & baffled sump & a fully rebuilt TSport box fit with a new Quaife LSD & the 6th gear from an MR2 to dramatically reduce revs on the motorway..
I'm poor againSad

No worries about the 215 45 17 tyres, they are the size tyres fitted as standard to Corolla Compressors, there won't be any clearance issues, the idea is to see how well these go & if all is well possibly go to 225 40's next time as quite a few of the Corolla lads run them.

Cool

Well after a month of waiting my tyres eventually arrived from Demon Tweeks!!!!!



Getting there!


It sits just how I wanted it, slightly higher than the poxy springs it used to have on..



Next job is the LSD box, sump & bigger brakes.
Oh & there's loads of clearance around the tyresNinja
Cheers
