Was bored and instead of working the long list of things to do/maintain the stag, i threw it on the Dyno instead to see if it's running fine, not lean as i got Impul Ecu in it now ........

Confirm it's all good, still running Rich as but better than lean i guess.

Dyno in 3rd gear, have 2 pre-run to make sure everything is safe, 3rd run is the power run for fun. 

Was going to run in 4th gear but the gear box was heating up so we scrapped that and so now i really have to get off my ass to fit the trans-oil cooler.

Drill out a broken bolt in the intake manifold, replaced with high tensile grade 12.9. 

Clean out the throttle body while at it, did play around with the butterfly and lucky enough, the idle is still fine, didn't have to do a re-set.

So some of you (most of you from Facebook lol) probably know that the stagea was involved in a crash about a week ago.


Damage was as follows:


Honestly not too bad damage for how it was hit, I'd consider myself lucky lol

Today I got some parts (thanks Liam!)


While the door isn't in pearl white, silvers good enough for now..

I'm going to most likely respray the car in the future anyway.

Here's hoping I can get this subframe in and the old one out ASAP

previously posted pics of LED High beam install, had my guy put in some LED fogs while I was out of town a few weeks back, no install pics just in action 


Fogs with headlights off (just the daytime running light inside each headlight housing)



All of the lights (factory low beams, LED fogs and LED high beams)

So it's been a pretty successful few weeks or how ever long its been lol. I'm going to try and do this in chronological order but dunno how easy that will be. This will also consist of lots and lots of photos so I apologise lol

First off, I swapped the door over. Only thing is that the inside door handle wasn't working and now after about a week with the door on the outside one isn't working... rip. Lucky I have a donor door :P


The ding still needs to be removed and painted.. got quoted $1200 which just about killed me... so dunno what i'm gonna do there, door still seals so maybe I can live with it till I can get it done and the money bank has some dough. The silver door just gives the car personality right?!?!? 


Annnddd the solid Hilux to carry the parts lol


Now. The goodie. Subframe removal and putting the new subframe together but not in,

Considering my uncle and I didn't really have much to go off for directions besides the quick google and got the base stuff figured out we just went straight into it. Didn't run into any issues sides the handbrake cable cover thing getting pulled out and the metal bit getting a bit bent around the edge, but we aren't too sure if we did that or if it had happened from the crash. 


Check out the shock though >.< 


I think all up it took us 6-ish hours, we took our time I guess, 

I picked up some V35 coupe rims?? 18x8 30p, my old wheels were 18x8 35p. I honestly don't think they will look that bad.



So that's about it... Subframe should go in the weekend after next.

They will look great on your car, I've got them on mineIMG_0369.JPG.622067ee0ab1416658792ec948a86111.JPG

Yeah they look pretty good on yours, I kinda want to get them powder coated but I'll see how I go lol.

Can't wait to put them on! [emoji2]

Yep, I'm guessing because your car is white, a slightly darker colour would work well. I've never been a fan of black wheels, though - what's the point in having or buying nice new wheels if you can't see the detail in them.

Braided lines






Whats the part number and where you got them from? Mainly the SS lines.

That looks like some decent bite there.
