Hey guys,

 

Since things are heating up over here and the car has undergone some significant changes, and even more to come, I have started a new thread.

 

 

You will need to be logged in to see the pictures. Click the icon to enlarge them

 

 

I will recap some of the previous mods but will focus mostly on what is coming. I will also link to any DIYs and product supplies throughout the build, as well as where we got specific work done, as a number of companies put in a lot of time and effort helping us get this car set up, which we greatly appreciate!

 

 

The engine is currently at the builders getting sleeved, forged lower compression pistons, forged rods, and a bunch of other work which I will get pictures of as soon as the internals arrive from overseas.

 

A lot of the parts listed in this build are available from our store here:

 

http://streetfx.com....category_id=193

 

 

Picture of current vehicle status (20-January, car painted - but it will be getting repainted as I have changed my mind about the final colour finish, test fitting rims):

Things I liked along the way:

  • The turbo kit, even at 4psi gave the car MASSIVE boost to driving joy, while not blindingly fast, it made the car feel like it should have from stock. Mountain driving in 3rd/4th gear instead of downshifting to 2nd constantly
  • The help offered by all the companies listed above, especially Option 1 Garage who has had to put up with me turning up repeatedly trying to last minute tweaks to the car every now and then :P Also MVP Motorsports in the USA who have been bending over backwards to try express ship us parts for the new stage.
  • Achilles 123S tyres = WICKED for the price!
  • I love the MCA Suspension, massive thanks to Josh and Murray Coote, you guys rock :D

 

 

Things I have found along the journey that I dont like:

  • Perrin overpipe (even after modification) fouls the cross member and vibrates against it (annoying!)
  • Invidia Exhaust tips sit too far in when coupled with the TRD rear bar
  • The exhaust setup really needs a flex pipe or something, we have blown out gaskets and now the car sounds like a truck
  • The invidia and perrin exhaust parts are not directly compatible, we had to kind of rejig the components to fit to each other (different types of flanges)
  • Removing the stock fog light assembly is a bitch
  • Without a catch can, the turbo kit causes blow-by and oil in the intake, upon research it would seem the factory PCV (crankcase valve) is not boost compatible, so this should be changed. 
  • My ABS/Traction/Stability randomly turns off - could be related to the EcuTek or the 
  • When I bought the AVO Turbo kit, it took a day to get MRT to unlock the license for the AVO tune (frustrating when I was trying to get the car on the road, would have been nice if the tune was unlocked as soon as it had sold).
  • Toyota Motor Australia have terrible customer service - the car has a few quirks that they refused to acknowledge right at the start, these include - faltering idle, passenger window auto scroll sometimes doesnt work, the direct injection pump 'cricket chirp', to name a few.
  • I hate the factory 'idiot proof' navigation that doesnt let you set a destination while the car is in motion
  • GReddy took FKN FOREVER to ship the Rocket Bunny kit (waited 6 months from date of payment)
  • The Invidia exhaust is too quiet for my liking, also the diameter of pipes narrower than I would have liked for a turbo application

 

 

 

9/July/2012: Stock, this is the day I picked the innocent little thing up.. Little did she know what was in for her :) 

 

white1.JPG

 

 

As soon as we got the car, we changed little things like the interior/exterior lights, badges, changed to BRZ garnishes and of course ditched that horrible factory license plate bracket etc..

 

86rear1.jpg

 

bootled.jpg

badges1.jpg

 

badge4.jpg

 

 

 

We also changed to LED indicators to get rid of the orange..

 

indicator_compare2.jpg

 

indicator_compare3.jpg

 

 

We now run chrome indicator bulbs instead of LEDs on the front/side.

 

We also now run 24LED replacement numberplate light modules, as some people complained that personalised plates with frames obstructed the factory lights.

The day after we picked up the car, it went to Solar Style window tinting to get paint/interior protection and some custom tint. Next it went to Option 1 Garage for a set of coilovers (BC Racing, later switched to MCA) and rims.

Then the car went to Audio Express. Hertz kindly supplied us with some awesome audio gear (amp, splits and sub), and Chris (Audio Express) installed it all along with a reverse camera, and the TPMS system:

Then came the TRD bodykit from Import Monster, which was fitted by Cammo at Cameron's bodyworks:

We were approached by MCA Suspension who wanted to test some new suspension on the car, so Josh Coote, put together a nice package for us. We currently have MCA Red suspension on it (although it is in the blue housing at the moment). With this suspension in it, Josh took the car around lakeside for testing, and we were pretty happy with the 1.03 lap times, for an otherwise stock car.

 

track3.jpg

 

 

We then sourced some Cusco strut braces via Jesse Streeter in Japan, and fitted them:

 

cusco9.jpg

 

cusco10.jpg

 

DIY Guide for cusco braces here:  Installation of Cusco Strut braces (pics)

 

 

 

Next the engine needed addressing.. Stock the car made 108rwkw, here is a stock dyno sheet:

 

stockdyno1.jpg

 

 

It was always going to need more power, so we grabbed one of the first AVO turbo kits available in Australia, from "Car Mods Australia". This was fitted by Option 1 Garage over the course of a day.

 

turbokit.JPG

 

avo2.jpg

 

avo.jpg

 

 

While we were at it, we got the Invidia and Perrin exhaust parts from CarmodsAustralia as well:

 

inv1.jpg

 

nv1.jpg

per.jpg

 

 

 

When adding a turbo (extra heat), it's always good to upgrade the cooling system, so we got a HKS oil cooler from "Northshore Toyota" (a vendor on here).

 

hks.jpg

 

 

We also upgraded the brakes to AP Racing:

 

ap.jpg

 

 

AP Racing vs stock:

 

ap0.jpg

 

 

Fitted (by option 1 garage):

 

ap1.jpg

 

brakes.JPG

 

 

 

Not much changed on the car for a while due to work commitments and delays in supplies of parts. Due to not fitting the catch can/PCV we held off from taking the car to the track since it has been turbocharged, as we had still been using the vehicle for daily driving.

 

During the downtime, we purchased a spare motor which was stripped down so the engine builder (JHH Engineering) could assess what would and would not be needed. It was not long before it was revealed that these are an open deck block, and would easily throw a rod through the side at the power levels we wanted if we did not strengthen it. We were initially going to just jam some forged rods/pistons in but JHH strongly advised that we should sleeve the block as well as run forged low comp pistons and forged rods.

 

Here are some pics of the stock engine/head/pistons:

 

eng1.jpg

 

eng2.jpg

 

eng3.jpg

 

eng4.jpg

 

 

Not much happened from here on, but  we did a few minor tweaks like add this CaFi 62100 head unit that interfaces with the OBD2 port on the car, as well as have wifi/3g capabilities to surf the net and facebook while driving :P

 

cafi0.jpg

Then we change the tail lights to Valenti SG Smoked:

DIY: Modifying the VALENTI to for parking "V" AND brake FLASHER (F1 race style)

 

DIY: Installing aftermarket (Valenti) FOG/Reverse lights (remove/refit)

 

 

 

 

We were a little bored of the old wheels so we figured since the new rims we wanted were 19s, the old Achilles 123S tyres could say goodbye in style:

 

86skid1 copy.jpg

 

 

We switched the old rims to these wicked looking concave CC03's.. They measure 19x9.5 and make the car look more aggressive:

 

cc03b.jpg

 

cc03c.jpg

 

cc03d.jpg

 

 

 

Update: 12-Oct-2013: The car is due to go into Cameron's Bodyworks to get the widebody kit fitted in 2 weeks. This is going to be molded in (not tacked on).

 

 

We are presently waiting on the engine to be finished, so that will most likely go in shortly after the wide body is fitted.

 

 

 

Updates to come shortly with the "good stuff" eg when the factory bodywork gets hacked off :S 

 

 

Update: 14-Oct-2013: Rocket Bunny kit finally arrived (took 6 months since date ordered argh!).

 

 

First thing you notice is just how deep the wing is!! It's like 50cm front to back, its so aggressive and massive haha

 

So as of next week, the cutting starts.. EEEK!!

Update: 22-Oct-2013: TRD kit has been removed, front guards and bars are now off.. The work is underway.. Eeek. Love the message from Cammo (at the panel shop).

My new turbo manifold and parts of the bigger turbo upgrade have arrived.. ID1000 injectors, vband manifold, recirculating dump pipe, and a bunch of other goodies now added to the pile.

Update: 23-Oct-2013: First cuts to the car commence, no turning back now :S New inner guards will be made to mate to the widebody, ensuring that no dirt/dust/mud/rust can get into the guards. Rear windows removed as well, since half the car will need to be repainted.

Update: 24-Oct-2013: Inner guards have been mocked up and will be made and attached later (first pic shows this). Widebody guard bolted/riveted/glued onto the panel, panels being sanded and prepped ready to mold the widebody into the factory panels. New inner guard fabricated.

Update: 25-Oct-2013: Another visit to Cameron's Body works saw the latest update to the car.. Also finally got around to grabbing the pics from my Digital SLR camera, so some of these pics are from earlier this week. Inner guards have been made, from metal, seam welded and sealed with rubber sealant (like factory seal sealant). These will be made flush with the rocket bunny flares. The rear diffuser is getting modified by Monkey Garage to accommodate the factory style reverse/foglight combination, rather than the Rocket Bunny reflectors and tiny reverse lamp. These pics show the process to modify the guards to make way for the biggest possible wheel clearance.

We have also cut the inner of the front guards to allow the BRZ garnishes to provide FUNCTIONAL venting. There will be black mesh here, and matte black paint on the chassis so it is not visible.

Update: 28-Oct-2013: Widebody guards have been affixed permanently and molding them into the stock metal bodywork has commenced. Doesn't look pretty, but it's unfortunately how it's done  :S

Update: 13-Nov-2013: Visited Cameron's bodyworks, where the guys have outdone themselves :P Josh has spent hours molding the guards and creating new bodylines. Getting the fuel filler is a bit tricky as it needs to be modified to allow the door to swing without fouling on the widebody. Further modifications will be done around this area to ensure that once it's painted and a little thicker, it will still clear. Front inner guards still need to be made/modified. Rest of the car is getting close to being ready for paint.. Keen to see what it looks like with the wing on ;) 

 

New items ordered:

 

RPS Carbon Clutch

Koyo Radiator

Greddy EVO 3 Cat back Exhaust

Motiv Concepts over pipe

Motiv Concepts down pipe

Beatrush Oil/Air Separator with oil cap return

Ven Air Silicon Coolant Hose Kit

Update: 03-Dec-2013: Popped in today to chat with Cameron about the colour scheme... Still undecided on what colour we will do the lips/skirts/wing etc.. I am sure I will work it out sooner or later  :P The wheels REALLY are crying to be replaced ASAP now.. Both sets of wheels on order are unfortunately showing no signs of arrival yet  :(Anyway, onto the pics.. 

 

The foglight recess is not quite how I wanted it yet, so that may need to be remade.. Wanted the foglight to sit perpendicular to the ground.. Will see what happens..

Update: 18-Dec-2013: Car has now been primed and then subsequently painted. I checked on it today, but have changed my mind and decided I am going to change the colour of the car slightly (much to Cammo's annoyance, as the paint job on it is done really nicely, almost a shame to sand it off and start again lol), watch this space, next year should show some nice changes  :) Purchased some of Luke's old bits, and he was kind enough to drop off the Greddy exhaust, and I can't wait to hear it   :D  Also the Tial BOV and wastegate have arrived, in purple/pink, Koyo alloy radiator (available to purchase from us as we have 3 spares!), and the Seibon Bonnet (also available to purchase through us, we have 1x spare).

Update: 20-Jan-2014: 

 

post-2-0-82914800-1390215479.jpg

 

 

OK, the latest updates bring mixed news.

 

1) The wheels from the USA (Forgestar flow forged 19x11) have arrived, but despite my best efforts, they came in 5x100 - I'd wanted to change them to 5x114.3 (was planning on running Subaru STi hubs), but they'd stated it was too late and they'd already started making them.. Which was weird, because it still took another 3 months after they said this, for them to arrive.. Go figure..

 

2) The wheels from Concave Concepts, which I'd originally also wanted to change to 5x114.3, but due to Forgestar refusing the change stud pattern - I said let's stick with 5x100... When they arrived though they were 5x114.3 and the wrong offset... Meaning that I currently have to run a conversion spacer to make them fit. Not ideal, but I guess it is a blessing in disguise, as I could potentially sell them to a GTR owner being a common stud pattern.

 

3) Unfortunately the CC rims don't have sufficient recess for the conversion spacers to allow the studs to countersink, which means I need to further modify the rims.. When we tried to bolt them up, they were pushed out an extra 6-7mm due to the way the factory studs protruded into the rear face of the rim..

 

4) It's possibly due to the extra offset caused by the wheel not sitting flush with the spacer, or the attempt to run extremely large tyres on the front (height is actually the same as stock, but width is like 8cm wider tyres), but they don't clear the oil cooler or rear of the front wheel arch.. When the wheels are modified, we will see where they sit, and whether we need to alter the offset further... It's possible we should have gone with 9.5 on the front instead of 10... We will update on this later in the week..

 

5) Rear offset probably could be even more aggressive, maybe need -5 to -10mm on the back, and +5mm to +10mm on the front - we will update on this later in the week. 

 

I guess nothing ever quite goes to plan, but here are some pics of the latest updates.

 

Here's the Forgestar ones (19x11 and 19x9.5). Hard to tell but they are massive concave.

Here's the Concave Concepts loaded into the SUV, transporting them to Cameron's bodyworks (18x11 and 18x10 with 295/30/18 Advan AD050 tyres)

Above to remove the old 19s:

Comparison of the old vs new. The new is actually a smaller rolling diameter, but wider footprint (by far):

 

post-2-0-38244700-1390215097_thumb.jpg

 

 

Here you can see the new 18x10 fouls the oil cooler. We will work on a solution to this later.

Here is a pic of where the stock studs foul the rear face of the rims:

And now some various pics showing the current setup, though it will be changing again soon..

Anyway, as I mentioned previously, time to start choosing a new colour.. Undecided yet  :P

 

post-2-0-93780300-1390215659_thumb.jpg

 

 

Update: 01-Feb-2014: 

 

Thanks to Cameron's Bodyworks, the rims have been modified to suit. Special thanks to Koya Australia for modifying the rims to shave off an extra 4mm so they fit the fronts.Also big thanks to Bridgestone in Coopers plains for fitting and balancing the rims up for us.

 

Here's a few pics of the beast in it's current state.. The GTR has some competition for the 'fattest car award' :D

Next stop - new paint, also Hertz have supplied some more Audio gear, and JHH have nearly finished the new motor :)

Update: 04-Mar-2014: 

 

Another visit to Cameron's bodyworks has seen the diffuser being further modified to accommodate the factory reverse/fog light combination lamp (which will of course house the Valenti unit). This has been a massive task in itself.

 

The new colour still hasnt been decided upon, but we should have updates on that this week  :D

Update: 24-Apr-2014: 

 

The color has finally been chosen, but we won't be uploading pics of that until it's finished. Here you can see the poor thing looking rather naked, stripped off once again of all it's paint, and rubbed back, ready for the new coats.

 

IMG_1185.jpg

 

IMG_1187.jpg

 

 

The diffuser underwent yet more modifications to fit in with my fussy requests, much to the annoyance of the guys doing the work I am sure - Yep I am one of *those* customers.. Needed it perfect :)

With a "bit" of massaging, cutting and welding, Cameron's bodyworks was able to fit the monster wheels and tyres inside the guards... Even at full lock - which for rims and tyres this wide, is quite an achievement!

 

86ht4.jpg

 

IMG_1620.jpg

 

 

 

We also have to thank MOTEC for suggesting the use of their new M150 ECU which is a complete plug and play unit. Also will be using the Motec Lambda wideband and controller. Not the cheapest solution out there, but it most assuredly is the best! 

 

motec.jpg

 

Thanks to 86Worx for the Cyberstork dashboard. We will be using these in conjunction with Cyberstork alloy gauge rings and needle bases. Will look awesome!

 

IMG_1203.jpg

 

The alloy upgrades will look like this pic, but obviously with the black/blue gauge face behind it.

 

 

ctork.jpg

 

We also have received the delivery of CF dash parts.

 

 

carbon bits.jpg

 

A flat bottom wheel has arrived also, thanks to ProSpeed Racing.

 

 

As the date to actually get it all assembled nears, our pile of parts has grown - including the GFB lightened pulley set (Thanks GFB!), RPS carbon clutch (thanks to MVP Motorsports) and a pair of subwoofer enclosures from Bayside Autostyling.

post-2-0-42486500-1398332423_thumb.jpg

 

 

parts.jpg

 

The subwoofer boxes will enclose a pair of Hertz 10" subs.

 

 

The engine will be taking a different direction as well, with a twin charge setup (turbo and supercharged). We expect the power output to be around 600hp, so we will be pushing a bit harder now :)

 

Working alongside Forged Performance, the engine bay should end up looking something like this..

 

kalen.jpg

 

 

 

As always, massive thankyou to all our sponsors and project contributors! We can't wait to get this beast on the road!

 

Don't forget that most of the parts listed in this build are available from us at http://www.streetfx.com.au or just mail us at [email protected] :)

Yeah, ok, but you could probably have done something with the....um.......hrm. Roof liner? Its about the only thing left on it thats stock. Great post and the car look shit hot.

 

It's great to see, this is what I reckon Toyota had in mind when starting the project, build and awesome daily driver that is also a blank canvas for those who want to personalise. Get away from that Camry image.

 

Good on you too though mate, its your experience that will help shape a lot of businesses and also provide a goal for those looking to upgrade, like myself, although I'm not brave enough to funk with the engine just yet, my warranty is too important to me. Are you doing anything with the Final Drive/LSD?

 

Its also great to see that this can be used as a daily driver, I followed you up Ann St in the city the other day and it didn't look like cop bait. Well cool.

 

 

 


  • Toyota Motor Australia have terrible customer service - the car has a few quirks that they refused to acknowledge right at the start, these include - faltering idle, passenger window auto scroll sometimes doesnt work, the direct injection pump 'cricket chirp', to name a few.

  • I hate the factory 'idiot proof' navigation that doesnt let you set a destination while the car is in motion
 
These are two of my most potent hates at the moment - Trying to get TRD parts or ANY aftermarket parts from Toyota Australia is bloody difficult, thats what comes from having little or no aftermarket experience in the past few years. And that Navigation thing. I could shoot someone over that.

you wouldn't consider getting Cammo to do proper metal widebody rear guards instead of just slicing up to fit RB ones?

There's no way Cammo would be able to fabricate metal guards that big, its not just flaring the guards, this is adding a substantially different shape to the guards.

 

These are being molded in anyway, not tacked on.

Are you getting new wheels too mate? RB kit requires wide, super low offset, and the ones you have now won't even go close to filling the new guards without massive spacers.

It's going to be a serious car when all is done!! I look forward to seeing the results :D
