Got some goodies for the ride

I don't think I've ever posted pictures of my car before on here, but I've been collecting parts for it for awhile now. I've finally been able to install most of it the other day. Here's a few pics of just the mods:

I still have to install the NST crank pulley and the polyurethane dogbone mount bushings.

I'm still on the market for a new suspension. Maybe some S Tech/Tokico Blues, TRD anti-sway bar and Ultra Racing 4 point lower brace. But first, I should probably pay off those pesky student loans.

nice man. The TRD muffler seems to be VERY CLOSE if not touching the bumper. I would try to lower it a little bit since the heat coming out of the tip could burn the paint.

I noticed that too when I got the car back. I'll check it out later when I have the time so for now, I'll let it stay. I would take some more pictures of my car, but I haven't had to time to clean and detail it for the past couple months, so it's got several layers of dirt and bug splatters on it.

Did the cold air extension fit without cutting or bending any sheet metal?

I was finally able to install the TRD strut brace, Injen SRI and UPFD CAI, but I had the TRD exhaust installed by Toyota because the two bolts were stuck on there even after drenching them in PB Blaster. I still haven't installed the NST pulley or the poly dogbone bushings yet though.

It fit just fine but I had to move it around to get it to fit without touching the frame. I might get a coupler to buffer the extension if it does touch the frame.

The "bar" is a strut tower brace, which basically minimizes the flex of the towers when you turn, which translates to slightly better handling.

On another note, I just found out this morning when I was getting ready to install the NST pulley that I was sent the wrong pulley. Since I'm N/A, I wanted the underdrive pulley, but I was sent the CR Lite. So now I'm not exactly sure what to do about it, since the original group buy was 3 years ago. Hell, I even bought the belts to go with it a few days after I received the pulley. With the way my luck and financial situation has been, I'm getting very discouraged about modifying my car. So anyone have any thoughts on which course I should take? Should I contact NST and see if I can persuade them to switch pulleys? Keep it until I get a supercharger? (Which is going to be VERY far in the future, if it even happens.) Or just sell it and be done with it?

Oh and maybe I should post up an updated picture of how my engine bay looks currently. But I'll do that after I get back from class.

As promised, here is a picture of how my engine bay looks after the addition of some Magnecor KV85 spark plug leads and a TRD 1.3 bar radiator cap:

And the latest thing I did to it was this:

Finally another update on my car. I haven't done much to it in a long time, but I finally was able to start with the dogbone bushings.

Image

This was a complete pain in the ass to do. Every shop I went to around my town didn't want to do it, so I was forced to do it myself. I'm able to only do one for now, but I'll do the smaller one later on.
