Yeah I'm aware of the TRD superchargers and the Blitz kits.. just haddn't seen anyone who had turbocharged it. I should have been a bit more specific in my original post. I'm keen to know if there have been any issues with having the turbocharger at the back of the engine bay against the firewall. I know of one person who was going to undertake a similar conversion and decided at the last minute not to bother due to the lack of room (after buying almost all the parts required).

hey nice car man, tell me more about the turbo kit

wat u wanna know ? its a complete custom kit since no one makes anything off the shelf for this car & since none of the yanks stuff will work either. All the piping placement designing was done by me however fabricated at a friends workshop.


Nice and stealth man. What kind of power you putting out?


Nice car man.. how much power is it putting out?

thanks guys ..... nice and stock was the look i was going for ;) ;) ..... its pushing 196kw @ 15psi @ wheels ..... currently running it @ 17.5psi so should easily be over 200 and it also needs a retune as i got a whole new fuel system to go in so we should see around 230-240 but hey wont know till its back in the workshop.


Nice car! A change of scenery from the myriad of Honda hatches (no offense to anyone of course) :) How do these corner btw?

stock i'd have to admit it handles like a land cruiser ..... tall and wobbly ...... however with the coils, LSD & other sussy bits n pieces she corneres like its on rails ;)


why does this car look so familiar?
where do you live mate?

mate its a corolla ofcourse it looks familiar ;) ;) ...... im out in the western suburbs



Yeah I'm aware of the TRD superchargers and the Blitz kits.. just haddn't seen anyone who had turbocharged it. I should have been a bit more specific in my original post.

I know of one person who was going to undertake a similar conversion and decided at the last minute not to bother due to the lack of room (after buying almost all the parts required).

the TRD supercharger is only made for the 1zz rolla (ascent, levin etc) for the 2zz the US makes several turbo kits which wont fit our cars here or in the supercharger you have trial, blitz or Greddy as kits or go full custom with rotrex or some other make. Regarding turbo'ing a 2zz rolla other than my car and there is one in QLD which CES finished building but it seems to have disappeared off the face of the planet after it went to the tuners i dont believe there are any other turbo'ed sportivo's in aus. there was only 3000 of them sold here so not big odds to see many ppl chuck a turbo on. The only issue with the turbo at the back was after a hard flogging the powersteering fluid was getting a little heated so we applied the same shielding as u will see in the pics below over the steering rack with some venting and also added a oil cooler to the power steering. No problems since. The big thing is protect everything u can from the heat as u will see in the pics below. I believe u are talking about & Mark/Jason P if i am not mistake who attempted a turbo up in QLD in a 1zz ? yeah Mark wasnt comfortable with the tightness of the fit. There are ways to make anything fit ;) ;)

How come you went through the trouble of a custom turbo when you could have bought a simple bolt on supercharger kit?

Also, is the LSD standard in the Sportivo?

but thats it ..... it would have been "simple" ..... to simple for my liking and very limited in its capability ..... with the charger kit i would have been stuck with wat ever it could produce n that it ..... with the turbo kit i could do wat eva i wanted which is what i have done .....

the LSD is not standard .... i thought it might come in handy ;)

Custom Turbo kits are easy to live it.. if you get it designed, built and installed by professionals.

Oh and having lots of money put into the project always helps.. haha

Very nice. The Corolla's an understated car, shame we don't see more modified ones. Over in the UK, Fensport had one running a Celica GT4 engine and 4WD transmission... that was one rapid car.

I bet a few people get a surprise in the old traffic light GP :p

I had problems with boiling fluids too which was solved with similar sheilding to yours, but nothing beats ceramic coating the exhaust housing, dump pipe and manifold. That made a huge difference to under bonnet temperatures.

yep they do ..... lol .... and yep we did all that ...... the problem is the dump pipe is like 2 inches way from one of the pipes running the power steering fluid through it and even though it had an insulation around it from factory it still isnt enough ..... but it seems like the powersteering oil cooler solved it...... will have to see how it comes out at the end of a track day

This is off topic, but I remember my first experience in a 2ZZ a while back....in a cousin's friends Celica with 5 blokes in it, he let it loose at a traffic light next to a Gallardo =]

Needless to say, the Lambo soon overtook us a mach 10 speed on the outside lane after the driver realised what we did, but I remember being pressed back in the seat, listening to the engine growl and watching the tacho go all the way past 8k rpm.....good times XD


Hes now got a supercharger and intercooler kit in it, goes like bejesus. Still no hope of beating the Gallardo though =P

standard gearbox?!

maybe also worthwhile trying out some heavy 15x7s with 2X5/65's for traction from the start? I speculate that the wheels you have being stupidly light and 16" are not optimal for a quick launch... 65 profile tyres will also help you get off the line i think.

yeah mate its a standard gearbox ...... only added an LSD

unfortunately i cant go any smaller than 16's bcuz of the brakes so im stuck with wat ever i can find in 16's which isnt much for tyres.

well managed to get it down in the 12.6 territory by the end of the night again on the last run but once again absolutely pathetic 60' times ..... 2.2 for this ..... funny i ran a 1.97 when i ran the 12.6 last time so if i can manage to get all the areas of running right (launch, gear changes etc) i might get my low 12 ...... lol .... traction was not my friend again that nite..... i am getting better at warming those tyres though .... lol .... was just a damn cold nite.

anyway here are my video clips of 3 of my runs

thx guys .... sorry been a while since ive been on jdmst .... got busy with life and all ..... yeah i have a friend with a SSS who is almost on par with intervals down the quarter except his 60' are sub 2's and he's landing 11.7's so if i could sort out the launch i would be set for a 11 sec pass i would hope ..... the mph and the power is def there for it.

Yeah the gearbox has held up ok but yeah it lasted about 18mths then 3rd let go .... 3rd and 4th gear are the weakest gears in this box .... so i had it pulled apart & cryoed, shot peened etc etc and that was looking to be fine but i figured i would do it properly so i bought a 3rd & 4th gear set see pics below & a comparison to stock .... knock on wood so far so good

Fri nights races resulted in 11win & 3 loses. Loses were rx7 2nd run... Buggered the start. EVO 9 th33vo again buggered the start. And the sr22ve 180, this was my first run & even with the tweaks there was even less traction than last month. I think the cooler conditions.... So I had to tweak my setup post this run....
