  3. Earlier
  4. Been awhile.... Got some new bits from Japan Managed to source a Vitz Rs rear lip from Japan which currently is in to get painted. Got super lucky on auction and got this Tommy Kaira special edition Recaro SR, just the one though. Thought i'd never ever in my life would find another one since they are so incredibly rare, well I found another one which was brand new! That's it for now, thanks for reading

    Hi guys and gals, some of you will remember my first yaris build the 1.3 colour collection that ended up as a vitz rs replica. Well after a few years and a couple of bad choices im back in a mk3 hybrid this time which again is going down the vitz replica route 😂 so far iv rebadged it as a vitz using the right badges to match, tinted the fog lights, blacked out the chrome bezel around the figs, added wind deflectors and added some trims round the door strikes to hide the bolts as well as do away with some of the hybrid badges iv more plans for the future but for now this how she stands 👍

    Don’t know why it posted the random pictures at the end of my writing, it wouldn’t let me remove them either. Sorry guys !
  13. Lewis’ Yaris Tsport Turbo

    It’s been a long time since I’ve updated, mainly laziness and party because the forum has been down. It’s now back up and going thanks to Aidan!. so I’ve had to re read what I wrote from last time and a lot has changed. I’ve managed to get a D4D intercooler scoop and mount it I’ve also raised the bonnet to help with cooling too. I also used some of the gold heat resistant tape on intake pipes, made a cold air feed to the air filter and made a heat shield for the filter too. I made the heat shield from some spare alloy I had knocking about, cut and folded it to shape. Painted it black and used the gold tape again too. Thats the basic shape cut roughly, then I marked out where to bend the metal and shaped it to suit. Fairly happy with how it’s shields from the bay. And that’s more or less the finished product. I was thinking of a few ways to optimise air flow through the engine bay other than cutting a massive hole in the bonnet. Everyone’s favourite bumper “race car” holes. I thought they’d help even if it’s in a small way to push air through the rad and to the engine. I cut some circles out of vinyl wrap to get a rough idea on how I’d like them/how they’d sit and how many I could do. Once I was happy I transferred that to masking tape and drew round my hole saw. They’re fairly level and symmetrical but slightly off if you look hard enough. Then it was drilling time! They came out better than expected and it allows if anything a tiny bit more air flow. While I was busy sorting engine bay temps I had a carbon fibre control panel plate specially made with yellow buttons for my steering wheel. They’re designed to control the dash display menu plus change screens. Volantech make bespoke plates in different materials button requirements and sizes etc. I went for a 4 button (yellow buttons) carbon fibre plate with a coiled quick release cable. It’s a small but nice feature and it’ll give me the ability to use more function of my dash display. When I spoke to Grant my mapper he reckons my intercooler is restricting my air intake temps, his words were “they’re not ideal” so that means do something about it. I looked into how much space I had behind my bumper and what I could potentially fit. I started with a mock of Mishimoto’s biggest and thickest intercooler they sell. I can’t remember the exact measurements that they quote, it’s all on their site if you’re that interested. That’s my rough CAD design, you’ll know what CAD is if you watch Project Binky! Basically it wouldn’t fit because it’s too thick, I couldn’t make enough room to push it back and get the bumper to sit back. So I bought the same size but 3inch instead of 4 inch I believe. The size difference between both coolers, Mishimoto one is almost double the height and slightly thicker. If you follow me on instagram you’d of seen these pictures. Mishimoto actually reposted this picture on their page^^ big old cooler just about fits. Everything was going pretty well and I took the car back to Grant for a map adjust because of all the work I’ve done on engine bay temp control. He was pleased with what I’ve done and we put it back on the rollers. Previous Dyno sheet high boost 263bhp @7500 rpm and 240LB of torque @ 1.2 bar. Low boost on a switch is 159bhp @7500rpm and 150lb of torque @ 0.4 of a bar I believe. After new cooler and air feed etc 312bhp @7500 282lb of torque @ 1.4 bar of boost. 289WHP power to weight to come. So as you imagine all these little things added up. Grant was impressed with the difference it made, he also said on the first map he was being a bit reserved. He went a bit harder this time. I asked what I’d need if I wanted to make more power and he said we’re out of injectors(660CC returnless) but I don’t feel like it needs more it’s a bit silly for a Yaris as is. I managed to to make it last one day before I broke it. My competition stage 5 clutch died on me. As you can see the clutch has stripped its self on the input shaft. it also took the input shaft with it so I had to replace a clutch plus strip and rebuild the box with another input shaft. Hard to see but it wore the input shaft too so my new clutch would slop about between the teeth of the splines. We think it was down to not having both dowels in engine/gearbox casing because they create a small amount of movement. Expensive mistake but over seen from when the engine blew up. I refitted a competition stage 4 clutch as advised by IDWorkz because apparently Stage 5 didn’t exist anymore. That was fitted and was no good at all, clutch wouldn’t clear meaning gear selection was super tight and no good plus it made awful sounds. Didn’t find IDWorkz or competition very helpful to an extent. So I had to buy another clutch and I went for a ACT 6 paddle clutch. And had the gearbox rebuild with a new final drive ratio from a Toyota Glanza/Starlet including brand new 2nd/3rd/4th synchros and seals. So that was all replaced and the ACT clutch works as should and has a nice feel better than the competition one, also isn’t as noisy. Unfortunately someone threw away my completion clutch I was going to send back for warranty so that cost me extra money I didn’t want to be spending as well as the labour. I did kick up a fuss at work but they weren’t willing to do anything about it and blamed me even tho I didn’t touch the car just the gearbox. Anyway it’s sorted and cost a lot more than it should. Car wasn’t driving nicely the diff felt all over the place and I had a clunk under full lock at like 2mph. Work had it back but never found anything, I replaced the gearbox oil and it seemed to of made a difference. This seemed to be its natural habitat for a while unfortunately, Also noticed the hangers for the back box and just a bit further back had snapped because of rot so I had them remade and welded back up. So I needed to sort the dash board out with the old clock hole being made redundant, I spoke to one of my friends who does body work to sort this issue. He fibre glassed the hole and fillered it beat his could. It’s a awful shape and I wasn’t expecting miracles. It looks fairly good it does have a dip where the dome use to be but I don’t think it’ll make much difference you don’t look at it that hard. Once that was finished I had the top bit flocked because race car obviously. Dash in and it’s starting to look more like a car now. Haven’t got any pictures because I thought it was pointless but I replaced my wheels with the same wheels. My old wheels were Rota slipstream ET35/38 I think 6.5J 15 inch and I replaced them with Rota slipstream ET40 7J 15 inch. I worked out with my silly big front spacers to clear the brakes that they’d actually suit wider tyres with out make the car any wider. So in the same minimal space I have I’ve managed to get 205/50/15 in the same gap I got 195/50/15 on my old wheels. Slightly more grip, every little helps. Still using AD08RS. I found the wheels to be slightly better but I think 245 would be better aha. The slightly wider tyres and the difference in final drive make for the car to be more useable with its power. Yaris 16x69 = 4.31 Glanza 18x67 = 3.72 Tooth count of the crown wheel and pinion for both cars final drives and the ratio they work out to be. So it’s a decent difference what’s most noticeable is that 70mph use to be 4K almost on the standard Yaris final drive. Glanza final drive is just over 3K 3rd gear with the Glanza final drive at 7500rpm is 99mph where as it use to be 99mph in 4th in the Yaris. Doing the math the top speed is around 167mph with the Glanza final drive, pretty scary. So it’s 2 weeks before Japfest silverstone and I decided to attempt to paint and fit my RS lip to my very knackered bumper. Lip was supplied by Lanier course. My friend kinda lent me his garage for some late nights and bodgery. My body work skills don’t exist and the final finish isn’t great at all but better than the premiered bumper. The bumper had some holes in from trial and error on fitting intercooler and mounting the thing. So I had to fibre glass and fill some of these. My friend is a carpenter by trade so he made me up some stands so we were able to work on the bumper easier. Fibreglass and aluminium mesh for re enforcement for the bigger holes. This bumper was purchased brand new from Toyota and left in my back garden blowing around so it’s rough and needed lots of sanding and skimming. My filling work is non existent and I won’t be doing anymore body work like this. Very annoying and time consuming. The lip had a bit of damaged on one of them and the mounting points were destroyed. Managed to get the bumper and lips in primer. Test fitting the lip and it looks like it’s coming together. I filled in all my old holes for mounting so I had to take it back home in primer and make sure it all fits and re drill 2 holes. So it kinda fits and it looks huge with the lip on in primer. I don’t have any picture but I had to rework to chase a few MM on the intercooler backwards to make the bumper fit nicer. Back in my make shift booth for painting. I used a random eBay paint colour match spray cans, no compressors and paint guns here. Wasn’t expect much on the colour match either and I was right not too. Little before and after. It looks a lot better even tho the repair and paint job is rough. So off to my first ever Japfest at silverstone. I’m from Bristol, I’m about 30 minutes away from castle Combe and since they moved Japfest from Combe I haven’t been. It was nice to meet a few of you guys I didn’t hang around too long as there was lots to see! Someone took a picture of my car from the club, I can’t remember his name but I believe it was David, Good photo ! Managed to get myself a Mishimoto inflatable penguin ! And I heard but didn’t see this unfortunate accident, The owner is stood in the back ground on his phone putting on a brave face is all I can imagine. Japfest 2019 was good and a decent turn out for Yaris’ I thought. I’ll be at Donnington too. The car has started crunching 3rd gear ever so slightly at really high RPM so it looks like another box rebuild but I’m going to put it off a while. Things that still need to be done : Fuel gauge wiring(still have no fuel gauge) Dash buttons wiring in A map tweak to sort my RPM vs Boost after changing the final drive. Get the rocker cover powder coated Bigger oil cooler The car has almost been on the road a year and it’s still not where it needs to be. I suppose Rome wasn’t built in a day. And we’ll carry on to make it right !

  15. Update time! It's been awhile because the forum has been down, but the build continued during the cold days. I imported a set of Enkei RPF1's from Japan A fellow Yaris Club member from the UK visited me, as I wasn't too far off his route during his trip to the Netherlands. Last month when the weather was getting better I treated the Yaris to a engine and gearbox oilchange And to finish my post, here are some shots from my first show of the season I took this weekend.

    Hey all. Just an announcement to say that these forums may become static. I.E. No new posts, just an information resource. It also might not happen. The mystery continues. Anyway, enjoy the site being back up
  17. Jack's TTE supercharged yaris

    So here is another little update as to whats been going on! well, it broke again! 3 times actually first off the top alternator bracket snapped which wasn't great but easily remedied and welded up and now working fine, the car has been running lean since i got the car pretty much, originally i thought it was to do with the big intake and standard injectors but upon investigation the charger pipe just after the throttle body had two bolt holes empty for where a bracket should be, i just stuck two bolts in there and its been sound since then the bottom alternator bolt backed out and started to arc onto the earth which wasn't so fun when it was raining at 7 in the morning on the way to work! new bolts and nuts and that has been sorted. modification wise i've tinted the side repeaters as i cant bare the sight of the clear ones, i bought a set of Enkei rs wheels which have made the car easier on the eye! poly engine mounts have also been bought off of Milo along with a brake stopper which will do well for the car as the engine movement with the charger doesn't do me any favours. Also ive gotten fed up with messing about with washers and incorrect spacers for the alternator relocation bracket so i did some searching on the TTE install guide and found the ones i need and ordered those so the belt will now run true like it should. next job is to paint some bits on the car like the scuttle and any faded black trim along with the inside of the headlights, once that's all done ill look into sourcing a lip and replacing the bonnet and bumper
  18. Jack's TTE supercharged yaris

    @cams they're great fun mate, although the charged ones dont come without their issues, hopefully all sorted again soon!
  19. It's been a while! Finally decided to replace the very hazed and scratched headlights, couldn't get them clean enough to my standards. So that's why I bought brand new ones these are made by Depo cheap enough and good quality. Much better, here's the old one for comparison. Latest addition is the Vitz aerial which is much smaller and can be tilted down That's all for now thanks again for reading.
  20. Is it me....

    Why has everything gone over to Facebook? A lot of other car forums are active? Used to be a busy forum this one back in the day
  21. Yaris Report On This Forum

    This car now resides with no MOT at the back of a Radcliffe used car pitch, on steelies with its dash ripped out and sunroof left open.... ☹️
  22. Jack's TTE supercharged yaris

    Looking good, have always wanted a charged Yaris. Similar to you i have just purchased a yaris T sport for the second time. Such good little cars. Good luck with the build buddy 👍🏾
  23. Y20 TTE So as i plan on having this car a while i thought it would be a good idea to start a forum thread to log the process of the "build" as some of you may know i used to have a Yaris T sport which was my first car, absolutely loved it to bits and regrettably sold it! went out and bought a clio 197, fun cars but not for me. after that came a flame red Astra VXR which was fully forged, bloody loved that car but unfortunately some people cant keep their hands to themselves and it was stolen and not recovered, so after seeing my options i decided it was time to scratch the boosted Yaris itch i had developed after owning my old one for 2 years. A lad on the YCUK facebook page had a TTE supercharged Yaris for sale in Thunder grey, it needed some bits doing and tidying up but that's what i wanted, something to get stuck into and learn some more things spec list when i picked up the car was TTE supercharger running TTE piggyback ecu K&n typhoon which i replaced for a Blitz sus lm as i wasnt keen on the positioning of the typhoon Cobra bucket seat, now replaced for 2 corbeau clubsports tein springs omp front brace torque dampener blitz back box before even picking up the car i had ordered a fair few parts off of club members, which included a brand new whiteline rear arb, optional extra led tails, lightweight flywheel, brake stopper, vitz badges and a few more little bits and pieces which made me feel more at home in the car. one of the main issues was that the alternator relocation bracket was spaced out completely wrong resulting in it squealing like anything and going through belts like there's no tomorrow this was an easy enough fix just a bit time consuming due to the crappy winter weather and an annoying stuck bolt, but 50 quid on irwin broken nut removers later and it was out! once the bracket was realigned it was till squeaking and it became clear that the alternator needed to go over to the right a little more, thankfully Chris had come round to pick up a pulley and then got stuck in and sorted it out for me, lending a hand where i could but mainly making the teas! all is good and back together, all checked over revealing i needed a water pump and to replace the pulley bearings pretty sharpish, it was fine for a day or so and then it had started squeaking again but only slightly under load, low and behold that evening the belt shit itself a few days later and a new belt it was right as rain again. Onto the next issue, the bloody battery! from what it looked like it was the original battery that came with the car from new, after leaving me shafted in tescos petrol station where 2 lads had to bump start me i decided it was time to order a odyssey pc680 with battery bracket from euros and Murray Motorsport. in general the car just needed a good service and going over to see whats what, it still needs some work without a doubt but that isn't an issue, i was happy when checking over the underside of the car to only find some small surface rust on the fuel tank, other than that its sweet as a nut! There isn't really too much more to say right now other than that, plans for the build will most likely chop and change as time goes on so i wont go over that just yet.
