They most definitely are not.

Factory 185 is mac, factory 205 is superstrut.
TTE 185 is mac, TTE 205 is mac.

Why? What makes you say that?

Because its too stiff? ... but its softer than you guys run, and is probably more comfortable too.
Because its too low? ... isnt that what most here aim for?
Because it has 100's of hours of development by world class racing drivers & mechanics and handles too well? .... errrrrr.


But anyway... all this is way off topic, this thread is about youre awesome build... back to it.


This is the only picture I got from a wrc tte st185 front suspension... :|

And the source of that shot is from that video

Well, the car isn't dead, which is good. In fact its still kickin!

Runs good aside from a pretty bad vacuum leak :shoots:

But yeah, just hit 250K on the clock, decided to do a compression test and the yearly maintenance

Turns out, the car is in better shape than I thought, 180psi on all cylinders and spark plug are absolutely normal

Image

So for now, I change all my silicon coupling, try to fix my vac leak, valve cover gasket is leaking, I have a broken
exhaust manifold stud, exhaust needs some tlc and the front brakes have seen much better days.

So i'll fix all these minor issues and I will also change the fuel pump for a Denso Supra TT one because my 25years old
stock oem one could fail at anytime...

But aside from that im very happy with the car.
Also, for the winter I will store it so I needed a new car, I settled for a 1990 Toyota Hilux 22Re 4x4 5speed

Image

So yeah, I have a 1990 only Toyota lineup in my driveway haha...

Anyway I felt like I should update even though not much is happening, I really just enjoy driving right now. :D

Good call on the "hilux" or as we call them in the U.S. Toyota pickup lol. I had one for many years and drove it in Alaska for 3 brutal winters. Never got it stuck once. I upgraded to a double cab tundra now but I still miss the little guy.

Yeah, I can't wait to see how it performs in Canadian winter, we get -40 temperature and over 40 inches of snow depending on the area, then again the Gt-Four performed perfectly for the past 4years without any block heater or booster pack it shouldn't be any different with this one... :D

I never had a block heater on my pickup either. Started every time no problems! I did have a 4" lift and 33s though. That truck would blast through snow

Awesome truck man ! wow very clean too! :D

Alright, small update to my project, I removed the fuel tank and swapped out the fuel pump for a Denso Supra TT (950-0155) 280LPH pump. It fitted perfectly, no issues removing the tank or the pump either, everything went smooth like butter. Couldn't be more happy with that, tomorrow I'll reinstall the whole thing :)

So quick update, I drove the car all summer,

Bought some Advan RG1 wheels:

Image

All was well,
but in the last week of august I started having afr issues, turns out I have a massive boost leak behind the intake manifold. Tried a boost leak test, couldn't hold 2psi... :| I didn't have the time to really diagnose it, but now its in storage.

Luckily,
I finished the pickup on time.

Hi there, bought a similar car myself, so far I've added a 3" straight through exhaust, decat, L&N filter and ct20b turbo, cars in the garage at the moment, having a engine overhaul, with your background it will be interesting to see what mods you carry out.
