  1. So here is my 2001 Toyota Yaris, this is my second one in just over 3 years, I've owned this since October 2019 and I had my previous T Sport from March 2017 to November 2019. Current photos: I bought this car with a few good mods on it, Tanabe Catback, Whiteline rear ARB, Polybushed drop links, Recaro Trendlines from a CH1 Accord, OMP Racing GP Wheel, OMP Front Strut Brace, K&N Typhoon induction kit, Tein S Tech lowering springs and Enkei Racing S replica wheels and a few other little bits. I have since added to this list quite a bit and changed a few things. Here is the full spec list of the car: ●Accord Type R CH1 Recaro Trendlines ●OMP Racing GP 330mm steering wheel ●OMP Boss Kit ●OMP Front Strut Brace finished in Ibiza Pearl blue ●Whiteline rear anti-roll bar ●Tein S Tech 35/38 springs ●Custom 4 point underbrace ●Cusco brake master cylinder stopper (not arrived yet) ●Hypersport polybush drop links and arb bushes ●Hypersport HS-0001 short shifter ●Vitz RS Optional Extra LED Taillights ●Vitz RS Front lip ●Vitz RS Dual clear bumper lenses ●Vitz RS Front badging ●Vitz RS Scuff plates (not arrived yet) ●Vitz RS Sunvisors (not arrived yet) ●Tanabe Medalion catback exhaust & decat ●K&N Typhoon induction kit ●Fog light cold air feed ●Genuine Enkei RP01 15x7 ●Sunstrip ●Team Heko wind deflectors ●Glanza/vertical rear wiper mod ●Debadged rear ●Tinted rear windows 5% ●Tinted side indicators ●Yellow brake calipers ●OEM Aerial shortened ●E12 Corolla Variable Intermittent wiper stalk ●Sony DSX-A410BT single din ●Pioneer TS Dash Speakers ●Soundproofed ●Password JDM Engine Bay dress up ●Epman Racing Oil Filler cap ●Black aluminium battery clamp ●LED Interior dome light and heater lights ●LED Reverse, rear fog and reg plate lights Here are some older photos from before I owned it: And here are some photos during my ownership from October ascending to February:  After the last two photos all that changed was the wheels. I was supposed to be going on my first track day this week (April 3rd 2020) however due to corona virus they've shut the track down temporarily. I still have plans to do a track day in the future when all this is over. My additional plans for the car doesn't consist of anything big at the moment as I don't have the funds: ●Ph2 interior swap ●Coilovers or dampers ●Torque damper ●Better tryes as these Rainsport 5s I've just put on are horrendous ●USDM Sidelights ●Lightweight crank pulley (& maybe flywheel) ●Weicher wishbone brace ●Refurb headlights ●Remove rear seats ●Refurb wheels ●Front camber bolts ●And a few other little bits If this post never gets updated, follow my Instagram where I always post photos of it @aye.adxm I doubt anyone's gonna read this anyway, but I just thought I'd post it for documentation to read back on in the future.
  2. 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.
