The HKS hybrid oil filter arrived yesterday. Here are some pics of the filter.







Here are some of the parts i have collected up to now for the next upgrade. I have found 4 injectors and I need 2 more. Also a few pics of the polyurethane steering rack bushes.

Did a service today to the car. Changed the oil and fitted new Torco SR-1 oil. Also fitted the new short HKS oil filter. As you see from the pic the space is limited with the sandwich plate so there is no other option than fit this size of filter.

I just collected the new steering wheel. It is version with the black leather and red stitches. I was looking for ages to get one of this but I managed at the end.

Car looks great. Just one curious question, has anyone swapped in a 1G-GTE head off a MKIII Supra? Imagine a twin 1/2-charged (twin turbo and supercharged) IS200..:D

Hi, no from what I know up to now. I only know one who has swapt his 1GFE for a 1GGTE engine and he has upgraded it to a single turbo.

New updates. Today we fitted the upgrade parts. First we fitted the 375cc injectors, relocated the steering wheel bottle, installed the water/methanol kit and lastly the 160mm pulley with the 5PK583 belt. I believe this is the correct belt size. It was already too tight before using the cradle belt tensioner. Next step is now to arrange this week to have the car remapped and see what the performance output will be. Driving back home I had the meth kit disengaged (wait until the car is remapped), but up to 4500rpm the boost gauge showed me 8psi! I did not push it further want the engine safe until the upgrade has finished. Happy with the result though. Here are some pictures of today's work.
