I finally managed to get the oil service done this weekend in preparation...

just got a few more things to check off the list now:

- change intercooler spal fan
- plumb in the Apexi AVCR boost controller and set it up to suit 0.7bar and 1.1bar (trip to Rogue for that I think)
- brake discs
- brake pads
- brake lines
- brake fluid
- spark plugs (already bought)
- HT leads (possibly)
- fabricate a front undertray to suit the TRD kit (aluminium sheet material already bought)
- coolant change

...I'm sure there's more to come :rolleyes:

I'm checking mine over on Saturday, perhaps will need a couple of ball joints and an abs sensor replacing as it keeps causing the speedo to twitch.

6 fresh tyres in the garage, think a nice pair on the rears would be sensible.

Need to buy a crate of Octane Booster, get it on a Dyno to get my EBC running fine (and some pub talk figures) and sort the ruddy suspension out!
