Re: Looking for a flywheel

Mine has had a solid, lightened flywheel all the time I have had the car and the previous owner fitted it. He told me it was the one off ebay which is this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-ALTEZZA-2-0-SXE10-3SGE-LIGHTENED-AND-BALANCED-FLYWHEEL-/361477725705?hash=item5429c05e09:g:19QAAOxy5QtSAhG...

Re: Compression test ?!

It will vary dependant on age and condition but the most important thing is that it is fairly consistant across all cylinders. If there is more than 10% difference in any of them then something is up. For reference, mine got 158 - 160 - 160 - 165 when I did it last year or so. Some engines get more ...

Re: VVTI not engaging .

How long has the oil been in there? If a while, give it a fresh oil and filter change with 5w30 oil and see how it feels after that?

Re: Clean altezza

TBH, I'm not sure on good ones but at least there are a good few over your side of the water - they are very rare to come up for sale over here (although admittedly a few more have changed hands recently)

When I bought mine in November 2014 there were only two on ebay in UK!

Re: Service manual

Yeah, dont buy that one cos I'm pretty sure that it is one that I already have that I got hold of ages ago. It is ok but does only cover engine. Im not convinced that I have all of it though - it is 28 pages long and covers this lot: http://i.imgur.com/dTcA62A.jpg So I dont know if the pages before ...

Re: Service manual

If you can find the link and we can get a few of us to share the cost then that's no problem if the manual can be separated as we have got a copier here at work and I can feed the pages is and do a pdf copy of it easily ;) Thanks for the other link, I also found that one before and used it when I ha...

Re: Service manual

That's a good idea, thanks mate :)

Do we know if the NZ one is any good? If it's a full blown FSM in English and its in PDF format then a load of us could club together to buy it and then email it around maybe? :)

Re: Altezza GReddy Turbo Kit Parts for sale

Thanks for the info on the pipe, wasn't sure if the top manifold had the same connection as the NA one so no worries. I am interested in the washer bottle relocation kit though maybe cos my fogs and HIDs will be going down in my bumper and its a tight fit! Where abouts does it sit in the new locatio...

Re: Service manual

I've also got the same Russian version but I've never managed to find a full FSM in English! Really frustrating as the Russian one would be brilliant if it was in English (obviously).

Re: Altezza GReddy Turbo Kit Parts for sale

Can you post photos of the downpipe please and which bits are included? Will it fit onto a stock manifold too?
