    Torque settings - changing discs and pads

    Fitted the pads with my 15 year old Son today, let him do most of it. Went well given neither of us had done a pad change before. No more sqeaking brakes! Thanks all for the tips and guidance. Gonna be a bit more adventurous tomorrow if I have time, I have new front discs/pads and offside front wheel bearing to fit on my other car.

    Took it back to Dealer and booked in for Friday, apparently it's the control console that has gone on the left hand side.

    Disks and pads.

    Think hard about a bbk up front. Certainly the dba is great, confident feel vs stock. I think when my current disks are out I'll get a bbk though. Seems to be a sensible option for long term cost as well.

    SUNSET MEET at Beachy Head -soon!

    At the moment, and I stress " at the moment", the week beginning 3rd June is looking good for a meet.If you want to get the lie of the land, the pub central to the meet is a Vintage Inn, BN20 7YA.If you can't make that week, I may well plan another meet, if all goes well. Having been up there quite a lot recently, I have noted it becoming a popular area for "yoofs" in the evenings, who are enjoying comparing sound systems and making doughnuts, it seems. There is already an ongoing "official" presence in the area provided by the Chaplaincy service, and this may well extend to increased police patrols if the younger vehicle enthusiasts cannot reign in their exuberance. We will need to be on our best behaviour.

    Just had another trip back to TD to get a few little bits ready so the car is now fully sorted for the summer and a trip to the ring later in the year. I went for the ebc yellowstuff pads and braided line package, i ran these on my previous car and was impressed with how they handled that so it should only be better on the lighter Toyota. I also got the cam plate cover changed to just help stop any leaks before it does happen and the 4.67 final drive. It’s only been a day but so far the pads seem to be bedding in well, had plenty of chances to use them on the way home as the M6 was a carpark for most of the journey. The FD change definitely feels a lot better to me, I will do another review in a week or 2 but so far so good only downside is now at a true 75mph the revs are about 350 more than before but to be honest the mpg didn’t seem to bad on the screen the limited time I could put my foot down but it definitely has a bit more go on the motorway when I’m 6th. Also I think it might help my mpg as a lot of my driving is around town and I think I can now comfortably go 1 gear higher than I would as standard, got a lot of 30&40mph roads here and now it sits quite nice in 6th at just over 40 with out to much strain on the engine as standard the display was always telling me to change from 5th to 6th but it never seemed very happy at this low revs about 1600rpm whereas now it sits at 2000rpm in 6th and seems a lot smoother. I also got a couple of changes made to my map as I was never happy with the low idle these cars have so I bumped that up to about 1000rpm and also had the full power map’s throttle sensitively lowered a bit and again it’s only been a day but it feels so much nicer with the map and diff change even the wife commented that it seems so much smoother
  11. Thanks for the comments guys. They are great lightweight wheels. The only reason I went for a staggered set is because I dont like poke on the front. Yeah taking a hit but plans change.
  12. That's a great price! You're taking a big hit on those. Been on the lookout for a lightweight set of wheels recently and they rarely come up. If I hadn't just ordered some and these weren't staggered I too would have had these. Someone's going to get a bargain if they're looking for a staggered setup.

    Disks and pads.

    Sorry to revive an old thread but how did you get on with the new disc and pad setup? I'm looking at doing something similar soon as my front pads and discs are also worn out after a few track days.
  14. Further to my post above, have just completed trip to North Wales from Bournemouth at late night motorway speeds uneventfully so have a bit more confidence about tomorrow’s track day.
  15. It's down to when the car was built, not when it was registered.

    So a little more throttle response and a tiny bit more torque. What's not to like? The FA20 needs every bit it can get.

    No, you want the least amount of restriction upstream of a positive displacement blower. As said, the OEM design is to help remove noise and resonance. The sizing is perfectly adequate for 200bhp. https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49634 https://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=56341
  19. Evening. Has anybody got a dual or a single resonated decat pipe that they no longer require please. If local I can collect otherwise it would be courier to Birmingham. Thanks in advance.

    Agreed, but I read that on my search through the internet as to why the design changed. HKS only talk about "10x the opening" in their blurb. As for the Cosworth SC, surely forced induction gets around any restrictions in air flow, to a degree? It's NA that needs every assistance in getting more air into the cylinders.
  21. If only you didn't get a staggered setup, otherwise I'd have had your arm off at that price.... Oh well 😢 Good luck with the sale as that's a bargain with tyres as well.
  22. For sale are my almost new Wedsport wheels. These have done around 300 miles so both the tyres and wheels are as new. 2x 17x8" ET42 with 215/45/17 tyres 2x 17x9" ET35 with 245/40/17 tyres The rears fit flush with no rubbing at all. All the tyres are as new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s. These wheels are stupidly light. The 8" fronts weigh 6.75kg while the 9" rears weigh just over 7.00kg. The wheels and tyres cost me £2300 all in. Im looking for offers of around £1500. Im im no rush to sell as Im just about to order a wide arch kit. Collection from Swindon Wiltshire. Im happy to travel and meet a certain distance away but I will not post. 8" Fronts: 9" Rears: On the car:

    Can't see there being much restriction to the radiator with the old version. From @Badger pictures above it doesn't seem much different to the oem set up in terms of any radiator coverage
  24. MartinT

    HKS Intake Duct

    I believe they redesigned it because the previous big scoop version restricted airflow to the radiator?
  25. Deacon

    HKS Intake Duct

    Interesting design change. Wonder if they're expecting it to be used with a bumper cutout?
  26. knightryder

    HKS Intake Duct

    It's not, and Cosworth didn't find it a restriction on the SC either.
  27. MartinT

    HKS Intake Duct

    Looking at the standard snorkel, it does look restrictive. Ah well, it doesn't look too hard to replace so we'll see.
