    I think its time for another overdue update.

    [​IMG]

    Had some last minute issues to sort right before finalboss last month.... Hub bolts sheared off in the carpark, haha

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then we went to take some pics

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then, the following day we loaded up and hit the road down to driftland

    [​IMG]

    Finalboss was so much fun, hard to remember all the details now. But chilling and driving with every internet cunt was awesome. Even Team Tekno rocked up

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Me and D had no issues all weekend, while Mint was battling missfire issues, and Jites kept blowing up gearboxes

    [​IMG]

    Ive spent the last 2 almost 3 days reading this whole thread at work and wow, so much work and effort put in to this altezza its beautiful. Serious love for this. I too have a white Altezza with full TRD kit sitting nicely on HSD coilovers also. I've just bought a low mileage 3S-GE engine with turbo goodness to chuck in and cant wait, claimed around 300bhp.

    Wish i had the time, money, and most importantly the know how, to do that kind of work you have done to my altezza especially with the 1jz. Perhaps you should come South Wales and give me a hand haha!! Cant wait to read more on this car.

    Well done dude keep up the good work!

    Like most others here, I've just spent the last week reading this whole thread and it's fucking incredible. Beautiful car and I love the fact you never had a hint of stopping even when this went wrong.
    Keep up the awesome work man :)

    Damn! Its been a while since Ive been on here. A bit busy with life, any spare time goes into the tezza.

    W58 is holding up well, no issues so far. Peak boost is 0.95bar on actuator pressure.

    Past two weekends we hit up the track for the first time since Finalboss. Mr D and Jites are having car issues, so it was just me and Mint. Gave us a good opportunity to have some practice driving with each other. Never quite had the opportunity to do that since there was always something going wrong at past drift events, which resulted one of us being in the pits fixing shit. But that changed.

    We managed to make our way to Crail and then Driftland this Sunday. The weather was good, but it was a bit crowded. As a result we only got about 5 runs in, in total. But it was still an insane amount of fun. I dont think the driving was an issue, it was more of a case of gaining trust and confidence throwing the car in behind people...rightly so as it nearly ended badly a few times.

    Few photos popped up since then
