Sneak Peek

Update (29/03): The full details of the completed project can be found here.

Ever since I trashed my Vios back in July, lots of friends has been asking me about the condition of the car after it was released from the workshop, I'm quite satisfied with the workmanship as my family has known the workshop for more than 10 years.

While the car was being repaired in the workshop, in my mind I was planning to give the car an entire makeover in terms of performance and handling before I drive it on the road again.

Well, the car has been sitting in GT Auto's garage for the past 1.5 months undergoing a bolt-on turbo transformation and I'm looking forward to collect the car for a test drive this coming weekend.

Hell, they even put it in under their featured cars within their website.

Here's a sneak peak of the work in progress:

Evo III Intercooler with aluminium piping & Samco hose


The Garrett turbine with ceramic coating on the downpipe and turbine housing


Close up shot of the turbine


Engine bay - Work still in progress


ATF Cooler


Engine Oil Cooler


All the coolers in place


Hotbits DT1 Coil Overs with Canister (Front)


Hotbits DT1 Coil Overs with Canister (Rear)


Sandwich for oil filter


Twin exhaust setup


Almost completed engine bay


The pipings are back from polishing


The Greddy Intelligent Informeter Touch


Informeter Touch unwrapped


The VTTR package


The disc rotor and the brake caliper


Fitted with my old Advanti 17' rims


Had to change the rims with a proper offset so that the tires would not scratch the fender


Upgraded to Rays Engineering Gram Lights 57 with Eagle F1 Rubbers


Final outlook of the car, stock standard outlook.
