Is it an AU Spec with a glanza bonet / lights / bumper? OR is it in fact a dodgy import Glanza with hubcaps? Im guessing its non turbo?

They are great little cars cos its so easy to drop the 4gte's into em :)

Yep. This Starlet started off as a stock ADM "Life" model when I first had it.

JDM Glanza's always came with 14" steel wheels + hubcaps from the factory as far as I know of.

It's still naturally aspirated at the moment.

Yeah the 4EFTE off the EP91 Glanza's/EP82 GT's are fairly simple to drop in.



Check 1st post as I have updated the specifications.

lol :P . . .It won't be as torquey as the Vienta but it'll definitely have better power to weight ratio, rev out higher & be more fun around corners.

wtf that cant be a stock 20v engine? I knew it has individaul throttle bodies but damn........what a sexy piece of toyota engineering

As far as I know, the engine is internally stock. It has a few bolt-on mods but other than that, it's fairly stock.

hey nice ride... just wondering ho much performance and sound you get from a hi-flow Catalytic Convertor? and can you add them to stock exhaust or do u need new extractors and catback? thanksKaotic, I've always had this exhaust setup since I did the conversion and I never had a different exhaust setup on this engine to make a comparison in terms of performance/sound.

You can replace your stock catalytic convertor with a hi-flow one, but I don't really see the point since if you're upgrading the stock catalytic convertor, you might as well upgrade the whole exhaust system. In my opinion, you free up one restriction on your exhaust but leave the rest standard . . . just don't see the point in just doing that.
