    Power fc cold start idle?

    Has anyone else with a power fc found that from a cold start the idle rpm seems excessively high? It doesn't stay that high for long and once it gets some temperature in it, it settles down fine. I just find it strange. Does it on both my GTs with the power fc. Has anyone else found this? Is...

    all MY GTs have a juddery clutch to some degree :( one has a 3 puk paddle, so i kind of expect that to be juddery. its borderline nasty to drive with so i am tempted to swap it out to be honest! the other has an exedy organic and its not too bad, but still a bit juddery if you dont slip the...

    GT glow badge dissasembly?

    Finally bit the bullet and am going to try and refurb mine as it's looking a bit ropey. I have ordered one of those stickers from australia and I have taken the panel off the car, got the glow badge bit out and removed the bulbs etc. Is it a simple oven job to separate the clear front or is...

    ABS brake bleeding?

    Is anyone aware of a way to properly bleed the system with abs? I wanted to make sure all the fluid was changed including what is sitting around in the abs pump. The only way I have found people doing it is cracking the pipes open at the pump, but that seems messy and I would have thought...

    Anti roll bar droplinks?

    After about 15 years, I am finally getting round to fitting the trd arb I bought! As I have a mk1, it has the oldskool droplinks and the trd arb uses the newer balljoint type. Looking at the length of the originals compared to the ones IDworkz sell, the IDworkz ones seem alot shorter. Has...

    Battery charger recommendations!?

    Looking for a new battery charger? Been looking at the c-tek chargers, but not really sure what one to get? Any recommendations? I would ideally want one that is good for starlet sized batteries, slightly larger batteries like the one for my rx8 and motorbike batteries. I remove my batteries...

    How do you remove your driveshafts???

    Just wondered what different ways people use to remove the driveshafts from the box on their starlets? I use a hammer and a drift, it seems to work reasonably well for me, but I do always worry about the side forces I am putting on things, especially when the shaft is a bit tight. What are...

    Clutch release bearing???

    Are they all the same between stock clutches and uprated clutches? (Ignoring any special twin plate ones etc) I have a 3 puk exedy paddle clutch and want to stick a new release bearing in whilst the box is off. I didn't want to put a stock one on and it disintegrates after 5 minutes! Thanks

    Squeaky/chirpy belts????

    My GT has this odd squeak issue for as long as I remember. The sound is a bit like 2 balloons rubbing together. It only happens once the car has warmed up. I have changed cambelt and tensioners, water Pump (twice), water pump pulley (twice), alternator, crank pulley, both aux belts (twice). My...

    Gearbox synchros?

    Currently have my gearbox at the rebuilder and he said the synchros aren't that easy to get hold of anymore so is going to take a little longer than expected. I know you can get genuine still via IDworkz, but it doesn't look like they do them all? 3rd gear, which is the main issue doesn't seem...

    Poly engine mount modifications

    I removed my poly mounts a few years back as I couldnt stand the vibrations from them. I had the idea to add additional holes to reduce vibration and make them as close to oem feel as possible due to it being hard to find replacement oem mounts anymore. I contacted powerflex about doing this...

    Coil differences?

    I am aware there are 2 different coils, the older push on type and the clip type. Are they the same other than the clip part? I want to try a new coil on my mk1 and rather than replace the coil, dizzi and leads I wondered if i could simply remove the clip part and then push on my current...
