Hey guys,

I just joined out of peer pressure (thanks prizedbnx)

I bought this car about 2 weeks ago to replace my blue glitter ae71 station wagon, i couldnt handle having an old car anymore, so i had to find something newer and with less problems, and less kidney breaking abilities...though a 4ac with a weber at 6k still makes me feel good ;)

I had never driven a starlet before, but after the test drive i decided i will have to go back to the dark world of FWD :P

Basic specs on the car so far...most of which the previous owner did...

-greddy turbo timer
-boost guage
-some brand adjustable bleed valve
-front mount intercooler
-hks style BOV
-tinted windows (for hiding behind when the bov goes off)
-larger exhaust
-k&n pod filter
-suzuki gti radiator
-whiteline adjustable rear swaybar
-3.5" single DIN dvd player, with sub and amp
-genuine white trd gearknob

i still need to get the starter motor reconditioned, and also i have a new hks actuator for the wastegate.
the list of things to do is small...i want some nice black 15s, and then some quad headlights.

in the future im thinking ill look into getting a FCD, some kind of piggyback computer (emanage or similar), some coilovers and then cleaning up the body a bit more.

heres a few crap phone pics, ill get some good ones on the weekend

meadan
04-07-07, 06:23 PM
i have no idea about the power it makes. but its a crap load faster than the wagon :P

i have a feeling it will be hard to sell my other car, there is no love for ae71 wagons, apparently u cant be a drift king in one...maybe i need to rebuild my spare bigport and chuck it in

Beef/strip up ya starlet for the tracks and keep ya wagon for a daily? problem solved...no need to sell

meadan
04-07-07, 06:30 PM
lol, id prefer the other way around, the wagon is so much worse to drive on anything with bumps.

nice looking starlet my mate has one... there go pretty hard little pocket rockets.

meadan
04-07-07, 07:32 PM
probly looking for around $2200, thats with way too many spare parts including a bare 4age and reconditioned twinkie radiator. less without some things of course.
it has rego till december still...

i havent really advertised much yet, mainly on forums i frequent and through friends because id rather sell it to someone who will appreciate it

Buddah
04-07-07, 07:35 PM
fair enough, what about with just the bare essentials how much?

meadan
04-07-07, 07:47 PM

thanks for the comments.
its so fun to drive, but i still want to tweak it a bit more until im totally happy.

kikkoman- where did u see my wagon? have i met you before?

so many ppl to remember on a new forum it seems :P

Kikkoman
05-07-07, 05:56 PM
Nah, we haven't met, we just happen to be lined up at the lights one day in liverpool area.

What caught my eye was the AJPS and domokun stickers. Oh and the glitter.

meadan
05-07-07, 06:13 PM
ah ok
haha yeah, i figure the stickers is the only thing which makes me recognisable as not so fully sick as the paint looks.
i guess you couldnt see the JDM EGO sticker on the other side then. I would have saved it if i knew i was gonna buy a starlet

meadan
09-08-07, 07:44 PM

ive done some minor adjustment on the coilovers, im still trying to get the height right, but i lost the locknut key so i cant take my wheels off tonight :P
ill have some quad headlights coming soon, and also now have a set of 15s which im thinking of painting black

ok been doing way too much work on this car lately. i had it off the road for a week to get it working poperly. what i have done

-put in hks wastegate actuator
-got rid of turbrosmart bleed valve, now its set at constant 10-11 psi
-fixed small coolant leak
-moved air filter piping, replaced air filter
-moved overflow bottle
-did oil and filter change
-moved oil catch can and cleaned all the gunk out
-welded up a hole in the exhaust manifold (man cast iron welding rods are expensive)
-rewelded turbo outlet piping to fit around the new actuator
-mounted guages, not hooked up yet
-got 15" wheels and painted the centres flat black

omg thats heaps, heres some pictures

nice car mate, hows the fuel economy on these cars? was curious as to how much u'd get out of a 1.3l turbo

SANITORA
06-12-07, 05:25 PM
kick ass car the GT always wanted one... top fwd car right there

meadan
06-12-07, 05:55 PM
The fuel economy was pretty awesome, one tank would get like 400km of normal driving with a bit of boost each day. This car was an awesome little package, and by was, i mean i traded back into the old school :P

The AE71 had so much more character, i got a bit bored of all the comforts and easy driving. So i went back to a ke70, ill make a new thread one time, but heres one picture of it
