Heres My build thread, it is copied from another forum I'm on so maybe a bit out of date.

OK so I though it was about time I created a thread as I have some big plans for over the next couple of months, while I have no License

I bought the car last September (2010) with 80K miles when I passed my test.

The bought the car like this:

My 5e-fhe Sportif 26092010019

My 5e-fhe Sportif 26092010018

My 5e-fhe Sportif 26092010020

The spec was:

Rota Slip Streams 15inch
Lowered 60mm
Circuit sports lug nuts
Remus Back Box
Clear indicators
Unknown induction kit.

Just before Christmas the engine started to lose oil pressure on tick over, then the oil pressure switch went and ended up spinning the No3 crank shell

My 5e-fhe Sportif 01012011010

My 5e-fhe Sportif 01012011008

The car had to come off the road for 3 weeks while a mate put a new engine in.

Once the car was back on the road I decided it was time for an ICE upgrade Very Happy

I fitted a 12inch Alpine type D12 800w sub, 2x pioneer Kevlar 6x9s, 2x sony explode 6x9s

My 5e-fhe Sportif 05042011055

My 5e-fhe Sportif 05042011056

Once again i had a problem with the car Sad was on my way to work and completely out of the blue, bang the exhaust fell off. I took this as an opportunity to upgrade and got a custom stainless exhaust made.

My 5e-fhe Sportif 13092011047

After doing nothing to the car for a while I decided to dress up the engine bay a bit. I got some Autobahn silicone radiator hoses form a local breakers, Painted and polished the rocker cover and added a cold air feed to my induction kit. I also purchased a cheap strut brace from eBay

My 5e-fhe Sportif 26012011022

My 5e-fhe Sportif 07032011042

After this I finally started to look into tuning the car, so I got my self on to this. Having a look around I seen the Corolla mani seemed quite a popular mod so i got one, Along with so red HT leads HKS SPF reloaded, an alloy pipe from RW and some reservoir socks.

My 5e-fhe Sportif 13092011046

I bought an aftermarket rev counter but looked a bit tacky so I purchased some Paseo dials

My 5e-fhe Sportif 03082011005

Here's a few random pics

While the old engine was away I mocked up the new exhaust system, as the manifold ran from the block to the cat part of the old exhaust would need chopped off and a flange welded on.

NB. spark plug holes make excellent injector holders lol

My 5e-fhe Sportif WP_000098-1

Got the news 3 weeks ago that my engine would be back at the weekend, so I got the old engine pulled out ready for the rebuilt engine to go back in...

My 5e-fhe Sportif WP_000093-2

So got to the Friday and my Dad phoned the engine builder and they said it would be ready for another week, by this time I was starting to crack up so we went to see the progress that had been made. The engine hadn't been touched in the 2 months it had been there. So my Dad and I decided we would build it ourselves.

My 5e-fhe Sportif WP_000037-2

Cams out, let the cleaning commence.
