I'll be there again next year, this years was my first also. I stupidly thought that everyone turned up on Friday, the show was Saturday and everyone went home Sunday.... Thats what I did anyway..

We'll be dragging our tintent along with us again, but hopefully will get the pitch I paid for instead of the 'just find somewhere' attitude we got when we arrived on the Friday evening...

My bonus for me was the autojumble where I found a part for my Alpine ICE system that had been apid up for around 2 years waiting for a part to be found... Alpine themselves wnated 50 just to look at it before even attempting to fix it... all it needed was a very small plastic cog... I ended up buying a complete but non working system for 20 which got me the part I needed  :)

Not stupid at all, worry not, it's worth going whichever day you turn up, Sunday's best for the cars, of course, but Friday if you want to go over the jumble.

Billing's great for parts. It's worth going just for the Autojumble. Saved me close to three figures-worth of parts I bought that weekend  :)

That does look like a tidy install. Do you have a pic showing how the car looks overall?

Hi yes but it's not a show winner at the moment It's just been kept as tidy as possible
Because all the time has been spend under the bonnet at the moment https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=184735C9BB946F0F!622&authkey=!AJRHq4DgV0cEgXc&ithint=folder%2c

amazing car  :y

was thinking of transplanting a saab turbo or volvo t5 to my trackcar in the future but this is a very good alternative. 8)
cant think of a reason why i never thought of this engine  :-[

this engine is very heavy but stock power hold on a 2jz is easy 500hp without opening the engine. only a bigger turbo and external stuff required..power to weight is amazing  :)

Hi there thanks it's been plenty of work and the engine is amazing
The only real drawback is everything is pretty pricey for
It and gearbox options are really limited
Once I've got the new exhaust system made up and
A new suspension then il be thinking of doing the bmw m3
Gearbox conversion
I'm not sure how heavy the v6 lump was before but the 2jz seems quite a it heavier
And I've been trying to find a descent coilover kit for
It because with the extra weight and power it really does wobble and squirm
Around abit or it might just be my original shockers lol ;D

i know the prices of toyota parts indeed, everything is ridiculously expensive. on the other hand, quality is very good and almost impossible to destroy

see my topic for coilover ;).. vw golf 2 is usable with some modification.. with my set i can set it to almost stock heigt and minus 5 inch.
with a decent set you can choose the length of the springs and the spring rate. only thing is that corner weighting is necessary to calculate the rate. over here not a lot of tuners can do that.

second option is a guy i know that makes custom kits for a decent price.. for a calibra front coilover set he asks around 350 euro, and they look and work much nicer than the kw sets.

Yeah the Toyota quality is very good and the good thing with them is they are very desirable so if you spend on the right parts they will remain very valuable That's great thanks a lot il have a look at your page mate  :)
