Starlet Glanza Turbo
Pete's Starlet Glanza Turbo
240 BHP and only 900Kgs makes for a very lively Starlet Glanza, the car has been built by owner Pete and the attention to detail is truly amazing. Have a look below at the pics & spec list below for an idea of how much work has gone in to this car.
The engine has been built using an ultrasonic tested block for cylinder wall thickness, after checking the block for irregularities and approved "fit for tuning" the block received Wossner forged pistons and Fensport Racing con rods with floating gudgeon pins. The standard crank is balanced along with the lightened flywheel and Alloy crank pulley.
The Cylinder head is ported and polished and dowelled to the inlet manifold which has been modified to accept a larger 4A-GE throttle body. The head sits on a metal head gasket and ARP head bolts.
The engine also benefits from Alloy Crank, Alternator & Power Steering pulleys to reduce rotational mass.
TRD Engine mounts are used to mount the engine.
