  • My Caldina GT-T

    So After months of deliberation and research i decided to Import. I bought a 2000 Toyota Caldina GT-T Active Sports Edition. Its an AWD 2.0l Turbo punting out around 190kw. It had a few modifications when it got here including an after market exhaust and a POD filter. and after i saw the latest mightymods vid I feel like a bit of an idiot but its not really my fault some Japanese guy slapped a POD in there. I also intend on punting a car computer into her one running centrafuse either that or an android tablet install. Ive also looked into getting a verex muffler system but that might be a way off. other than that I haven't really planed that much.

    Engine
    - Blitz Pod Filter
    - Some sort of Japanese arftermarket exhaust (Cant seem to find any branding)

    Interior
    - Pro Sport Boost Gauge (White EVO)

    Exterior
    - Factory Fitted Active Sport Body Kit and Grill
    - 17" Drag Extreme DR-33 Rims (Pics coming soon)

    Audio
    - JVC KD-R905 Head Unit (bluetooth enabled)
    - Stock Speakers (not bad but considering upgrade)
    - Sony Explode Monoblock
    - Sony Explode Subwoofer

    Future Mods
    - Carcomputer running Centrafuse or Android Tablet (still tossing up shich one)
    - Coilovers
    - Varex Muffler
    - Speaker Upgrade
    - Electronic Boost Controller
    - Front Windows Tinted

    any ways here's some pics.

        lol well I don't know what it would sound like without it but it sounds awesome at the moment so maybe I am glad that I have one. Forgot to mention the first mods that im doing are a boost gauge and a boost controller. BTW done a quick search on ebay and just wondering if there's any benefit in paying for a more expensive boost controller as compared to a cheaper one? I mean i can get one for 6$ or one for $60 don't think ill buy the $6 one but i was just wondering how much I should be paying for one.

        Also the boost gauge that im looking at is a Prosport EVO gauge, I know there electric and mechanical seems to have a better response but they look too friken awesome to pass up. any comments on them?

                      Cool car! Some thing you can do with the pod filter is that you can make it a CAI, the only things you need now are the piping!
