    Spent a good amount of time dialing the alignment. Finally getting a nice linear rotation control i've been wanting with left foot braking.

    Less time tinkering with the mods for a little, just enjoying the car as is. lol

    The pics for this are broken, how did you get the mr2 swap header to fit? What kinds of mods are required and do you still have the pics? Thanks!

    Little Update

    Previously i was sporting a BBK from Fastbrakes which was good for the moment. Some reason i wanted more so i decided to step up to big leagues with a AP racing caliper and thicker rotor from a .81" to a 1.25".

    Everything is metric on this caliper, so i can forget a tool and not really stress. which was an added bonus, Plus this new kit i have designed to utilize all OEM Toyota standard bolts for ease of repair.

    So you updated your bbk purely so you can flex on other corollas. Seems about right

    How did you solve the shift cable problem? One of the OEM 8th gen cables doesn't have enough reach to get reverse on the Matrix c60.

    Well nothing new at the moment for updates, Been pretty slammed with new work.

    I am transferring over my factory oil cooler from the spare block to the current one ( little did i know some 2zz's had freeze plugs blocking off the ports on the block on USDM models) So off to Toyota it was for ordering the correct part. That project is on the back burner until i get a day off. Always know something is gonna be missing or needed.

    Went to a track day but just to hang out since my passenger tire is fried, The other track days killed them with that open diff.
