    Oil for occasional track days

    ^ This. If your only doing fast road driving and 1 or 2 trackdays a year, then the OE oil will be fine. It might be worth asking your local Toyota dealer to see if you can get the Gazoo Racing specific oil. I know this is available for the Supra & GR Yaris: https://toyotagazooracing.com/jp/gr/grparts/oil/

    Torque low - why?

    Don't forget our cars have quite a high compression ratio, which is favourable to N/A applications not boosted applications. Using you're above list, all the car listed have a lower ratio. 1. GR Yaris - 10.5:1 2. Golf GTi - 9.6.1 3. Civic Type R - 9.8:1 And as @Varelco states the conrods weren't specifically designed with boosted power in mind so they were made to support a lower torque limit.

  4. Event Title: Midlands Lunch Meet - Sat 19th June (Hoof Beats) Event Author: will300 Event Date: 19.06.2021 Hello Everyone As lockdown restrictions are now easing it's time to host another Midlands lunch meet. For this we'll be meeting at the Hoof Beats restaurant just of the A5 near Burntwood / Brownhills on Saturday 19th June at 11:30. I've provisionally booked an outside table for 6, we can book another table if we get more interest. The car park is a good size, however we expect it to get rather busy. Because of this and the fact I we'd all like to park closer together, we should park around the back of the restaurant where there is a large parking area. Please can we all aim to get there for 11:30, no earlier please. This will give us time for everyone to arrive before we sit down for lunch at 12. Here's the menu: https://www.hoofbeatsbnk.co.uk/main-menu/ Thanks for looking.

    HKS Supercharger - Design Flaw

    I've split the Harrop thread up to remove the HKS Supercharger chat as it holds no relevance to the Harrop discussion. Please keep all HKS chat to this thread.

    New wheels questions

    Here's some JR wheel weights for reference: JRweights.pdf
  10. It's legal, assuming the car still meets the MOT emission requirements for that vehicle.
  11. Well technically you not currently legal anyway. 😂
  12. As @Church said, if you buy a supercharger and keep the stock exhaust system you should legally pass the emissions test without issue. You can get away with changing the catback and still be legal. It's when you start changing exhaust manifold & front pipe is when you'll have problems. From a legal point the car needs to be as it left the factory or with an OEM spec equivalent part. In the case of our cars, they have two catalytic converters if you remove one of them it's technically no longer compliant and therefore should be an instant fail. Now the grey area is, you could have a decat exhaust manifold but the stock front pipe (vice verse) and then pass the emissions test. This isn't legal as you've still removed a cat, but if the MOT tester can't see the decat and you've passed the emissions, they'll mark it down as a pass anyway. As for turbo kits, the majority don't have catalytic converters fitted to them and I can only think of 4 turbo kits that do an option for a catted version, these are: Works Turbo Kit HKS Turbo kit Blitz turbo kit MPS Engineering

    8" 215/45 ET35 vastly different to stock?

    215 on an 8" will be fine, several of us have run that size. I personally didn't notice any perceivable performance difference from running that size. Here's a couple of photo's of mine when I was running the exact combo you mention. I'm on coilovers in these photo's but you get the idea.
