So, I decided i should make a my own little section all about my 1990 Turbo SW20,

First thing first, I brought my car from Tauranga back on 11th February 2017. It was basically stock except for the bright green paint that really makes it stand out from the crowd. Car came with ABS and Cruise control (still working, when it wants to turn on)

As of today, after a year of ownership ive done the following mods

GFB Boost Controller
Prosport Oil Temp/Pressure Gauges
Innovated WideBand Gauge
Gauges are held in a custom Gauge pod made in the UK by a man called Alan Bryson.
Custom made dominator shift surround, (also made by Alan Bryson)

Exterior Body Styling

C-One rear Spoiler
Custom made single vent opening (homemade)
Border style vent scoops
Border Style roof spoiler
Colour matched side trim + 92 front lip
Gen3 Kouki Lights and center panel, Custom made Carbon fibre badge.
Universal Diffuser fitted
Ezi lip side skirts
17" wheels wrapped with Nankang NS20s
"Hot House Holden Green" Paint work, Painted before my ownership
MRS front midship Badge to replace the OEM badge
Lowered on TRD springs


Mechanical Repairs/Upgrades


Replaced Headgasket
All Water hoses
Removed HFH, along with other hard lines,
Replaced water pump
Cambelt and tensioner
Thermostat
K&N Poddy
HKS Blow off Valve
3inch Downpipe
Redline Aluminum Radiator
Oil filter relocation kit,
Oil cooler
KYB shock inserts all round.

Current Plans are too drop the motor and replace the gearbox out for a LSD box and exedy HD Clutch, Redo the cambelt correctly, Refurbish 93 turbo brakes and new Znoelli slotted and dimpled rotors, Braided S/S brake lines, Custom make a Berk style exhaust.

Its been a while since ive updated so i thought id share what ive been working on.

So exhaust as been made, was fun making my first exhaust, all 3" Stainless Steel 304 Grade, 3" ebay downpipe followed by one of a kind exhausted, used AdrenlinR resonator and one muffler, i was surprised by how quiet it was, expected it to be way louder.

Scored a set of Greddy Rep side skirts so im in the process of fitting those. New lip and Wing on the way from Camposites, USA.

Finally got round to fitting my gated sump, hopefully this will help the motor out around the track. Speaking of track days, blew a braided coolant hose under the turbo on the last day so thats now been repaired, thanks to AA for the free tow home! (first and hopefully the last tow truck experience lol)

A Few Pictures Below.

Nice, glad I caught up with you in Cromwell last year and improvements continue on your toy. Tell us about the sump installed.

Hey Jim. Toyota fest was this year hahaha.
Good to meet you and see your car. The sump is an OBX aluminium gated sump. I brought it from Ross earlier this year but only just got around to fitting it now. But noticed an area it hasn't sealed so will take it back off this weekend and fix it.
