I went with the 205 pump cause it was newer and my 185 pump had a bent pulley.

Its leaking where the hardlines go in. I am not sure how I am going to fit my hands in there to tighten it but I am going to try this weekend.

I am trying to find my tein height adjustment tool. I need to lower one corner to match the car so I can taked it in for an alignment.

Guess I should list my mods as well.

Nice list. I noticed you had a Razzo weighted shift knob...how does that affect shifting?

Also, how did you go about removing your cruise control?

I pulled out the control box and the mechinism under the engine bay.

I am sure their is more to it, but I might end up wanting to put it back in, depending how much I use this car.

I am not going to bother with the powersteering for now. I am just going to start working out more.

If it does not rain tonight, I am going to roll my fenders and adjust the height of my coilovers. I may try an install my remaining bushings. Then I send the car off to the alignment shop. Going for a mostly stock alignment with 2 degrees of camber in the front.

Next chore is chainging the diff fluid and verifying my lsd.

The weighted knob is much like the stock knob. I didn't realise how much the stock knob was weighted till Ibought the razzo one. I like the shape of the razzo. It much like stock as well.

Rolled the rear fenders this morning.

Here are some pics.

The rear suspension is so stiff, that I had to push the car pretty hard to get it to rub. I wanted to remove the chances of more rub.

I also added enough pressure to the roller, to flare the fenders lightly. Looks like I have some flex room on the backs now if I wanted to ever go wider on the tires.

I need to finish a spot on the rear driver side then the rear is done. I didn't bother using a heat gun since I am getting the car painted anyway.
I would suggest using one if you want to save your paint though.

I am going to attempt to do the fronts as well. They are already rolled from the factory but I want to try and flare them just slightly. I have a little bit of rub on the right side in the front. Adjusting the height might help that some, but I want to make some room to add my 8mm spacer in the front.

I also drained the rear diff. It passed the turning lsd test, but I can not see in there well enough with a flashlight. So I am going to go rent a scope or something. I hope there is an lsd in there cause I don't have time to install one right now. I am going to have to start spending so much time on the car and get back to the business.

After. This shows how much clearance there is now. Still not a whole lot.

Hmm.. I was thinking about buying a fender roller..

I have the problem in the rear where the tires will rub against that litle part of the fender and leave a gummy residue..

The roller was much harder to use on the front. I gained a few more mm of clearance though for those really hard turns.

I have so many projects going right now, I think I might hold off on some of my mods till later.

I have to get my print shop up asap and work on my online store.

So I am going to sort out my idle issue, set my suspension height and get an alignment. I will either send it in to get the rear lsd installed or do it myself in a month or two. I still need to bleed the brakes and put some better fluid in.

Tried filling the fluid in the rear tiff to get me by till I can take it to a shop and have them replace it with the torsen.

I need to add another thing thing on my list as reason I need to kick mister toyota n the balls.

I tried a few things, Put a bendy drinking straw on the end of the diff oil contatiner. It helped. Ended up messing the bottle up trying to come up with a faster method.
I picked up a oil pump for running fluids into tight places. So I should be able to finish that this week, then send it in.

I just have to figure out if there ar any clips or parts that I need to get for swapping a torsen into an opened diff.

I might have to reedit this in the morning, my sleeping pill started kikcing in before I started typing this.

I will most likely not be messing with the car till the end of the week. I need to double check some vac hoses, then fill the rear diff. Then I am going to adjust the height and take it to a shop to install the rear lsd. After that it gets an alignment. That might be all it gets before the dragon meet, just cause I have so much going on with the online store and the print shop. I had planned on being ready so I could do dragon shirts in time, but those just won't happen this year.

I was sort of happy that the rear lsd was open. I hope this leads to more handling potential to the alltrac.

I have been realy busy with the printshop, since its my priority.
I hope to have the shop operational this next week then I have a large project with an art print contest I held. Mostly trying to get my main projects done and slowly finish the alltrac.

It might take a few more months, but I want it done right.

No, the pump I got looks like a mini basketball pump but its setup for fluids.

I rolled the majority of the fenders. The machine could not do the bottoms. I figuredI would just blend it and leave the bottoms so I can easily rinse out dirt.

Alright. Here's an update.
I made a final list of things I am doing before the meet, then I am going to slow down a little on the car.

I adjusted my Teins today to the specs in the HA sheet. I sort of want to make the fronts a little lower. To their specs the rears are lower.

I also sorted out my high idle issue.
I plugged in the a/c vsv and it fixed the rev issue. I am going to test drive it again. I need to examine my lines for the turbo vsv. I also need to hook up my boost controller. I am going to finish my suspension height this week, then get my lsd installed, then the alignment.

Here is the new idle vid.

Here are some pics of the alignment to Tein's specs.

Looking good. Glad to hear you're getting a lot of the bugs worked out. What size and offset are your wheels? spacers? They look great.

Thanks.

17x9 38et 255/40/17.

I just took it for a ride. After lowering the front an additional 15mm (5mm lower than the rear) And it handles even better. Maybe its just how I like thecar to feel or something, but the front is so much better. The whole car is better since I lowered it more.

I just installed the whiteline front strut bar. It barely clears the 205 catch can. Clears the IC just fine. I have been driving around with no strut bars at all (even oem).
I am going to see if I can tell anything different from just a front bar. I will install the rear bar in the morning and compare, and if I have time, I might install the oem body brace. I was wanting to paint it first before installing it. I might do that in the morning as well.

Just for the hell of it, I wanted to PS a savage lip on just to see how it would look.

I Have been thinking about adding a lower lip to the RC bumper when i get it put on properly. Did you PS and see how it looks from the front View?
