I've repinned the water temperatur sensor- and injector connectors on Tuesday, and wrapped the exhaust manifold today

Is the oil cooler delete just a plate or is there more to it? I'm curious to do this to relieve strain from the cooling system and use a more efficient air to oil cooler

It has an O-ring and a hollow screw. Initially it was mounted using four screws on the Gen 3 but the Gen 4 doesn't have them so my engine builder had to modify it.

Much has happened, the car runs great but I'm still waiting for getting it dyno tuned.
In the meantime I've bought new wheels
After six years on 225/35/18 on 18x7.5J I was tired of the hard ride:
Federal 595 RS-R 235/40/17 semislicks on OZ Crono Evo 17x8J.
I LOVE THEM, now it rides so nicely!

Man that looks good on the Cronos!!! It's very conservative which fits the rest of the body. I love it!!!

Just realized I haven't posted any updates here in a while (moved to our house, became father
This weekend I finally rebuilt the ST205 front calipers. Went like a charm with the gt4dc.co.uk guide
, thanks two_OH_five
In the process I've also installed a RHD brake fluid reservoir because the LHD didn't clear my C-One front strut bar and I had installed it 180 degrees rotated for the last years.

My ST205 is going Elite, Haltech Elite 1500
The Platinum 1000 is already sold and Elite installation and tuning will follow in the coming weeks.
I hope to finally get a dyno sheet of the 2.2 BC stroker this time.

could you please write more about this mod? (with some pictures)
I think I'll have the same problem with Laile Beatrush front strut bar in my LHD ST205
and btw, very nice OZ Crono's!

Took me some time to get the Lightroom to Gallery 3 publishing service working again but now they are up: my gallery
Also received the Elite 1500 last week and installed it in the car.
Didn't start it up yet as the battery is charging.

I've seen that the Gen 5 from the ST246 has no oil/water heat exchanger aka cooler but still the 3S block with the mounting location for it. Toyota fabricated a part for closing it instead so there is even an OEM option available.
