So its been a while since I first bought the bora and quite honestly I got bored with it.
I thought I wanted to sell up so Iv stripped a few bits off it getting back to sleeper mode and decided Iv gone through too much blood, sweat and tears to give up and sell up.

Iv bought a few things recently, all new boost pipes. Iv bought all the gaskets for the turbo to go on too. Iv also put the standard bumper back on.

Heres a few pics so far

Before




After




Who says you cant get the toyosports intercooler behind the standard bumper haha


Iv also purchased a few more bits but I will update in a few days.

Had a few hours on the car today, stripped off rocker cover, inlet manifold, injectors and fuel rail.
Replaced the inlet manifold and rocker cover to make things look abit cleaner, I also cleaned the fuel rail, wiring and throttle body.  Here are a few pics what the bay looks like now.





This is an old picture of how it used to look like

Actuator fitted to turbo. I had abit of trouble with the bracket but I removed the standard actuator bracket and changed them over so all is good  :grin:



Next is the vr6 maf housing. Il be removing a 1.8t maf sensor next from its housing and swap that over ready for the next remap  :evil:
