Default My New Toyota Corolla here in Ausi

Hi Guys,
Well thought I would just let you guys know I bought a 1987 Toyota Corolla with an ST185 in it. Its got a turbo with a front mount intercooler. Does about 12 sec quaters. I'm yet to get it tuned on the dyno but when its tuned I'll now the hp also. Right now it starts too rich and runs too lean. So waitin for some money to get it tuned. The pics are attached. Let me know your views guys. My future plan is to put an ST205 in it and if I have the money get it to India when I come back. I dunno the top speed as yet cause I haven't got a chance to go top speed as yet. I'm also goin to take a picture of the engine and let and upload it soon. Here are the pics:








man it goes like something. It reaches 200km/h. But again I'm a racedriver and don't drive my car like mad mate. So chill guys.

In Indian Rs I paid Rs. 435,921.66 thats about Aus $13000.
And yeah when I get to India I will raise the shocks a bit.
The next thing is the mods on it are:
1. St185 engine.
2. Front-Mouint Intercooler(PWR Exausts)
3. Bigger front and rear disc brakes.
4. 3.5 inch exaust.
5. As you can see 17inche wheels with tubeless tyres.
6. Boost Guage and controller which runs at 7 & 11 psi but after I tune it, it should be run better.

Yeah as far as I can remember this is it for now but when more come into my mind I'll put it out.
Thanks

Weren't you the guy who has a TC'd Lancer with 17" wheels back here in India?

Nice ride, 12 secs is pretty fast for a Corolla.
