Hi, i was browsing the net. Then I came across this website, which i thought some of you might find helpful.
I am in no way affiliated with this website just trying to help people here.

lots of interesting aftermarket bits.

thats AVO's webpage

They initially did the first upgrades on my gt4 ( electronic boost controller, FCD , cat back exhaust i think , boost limit in 1/2nd removed + turbo VSV relocation

happy with everythign bar the cat back zorst - its workmanship is shit ..

The rest netted 115 AWKW at a toymods dyno day on a half dead 3sgte , with stock cast dump pipe etc - beating 2 st185 group A's and 2 other standards on the day ( but i was blitzed by 2 st205's ! bastards ! )

very handy for Gt4 gear - but hella expensive - if we want - can we paste up other australian suppliers of Gt4 parts - i have tonnes - as youd expect )

www.whiteline.com.au/ <- home of the handliing and works kits for St185 and 165 Gt4's

http://www.whiteline.com.au/articles/RH43_CelicaGT4_a.htm < a write up on said Works kit - like what i have in my car

http://www.aussiexhaust.com.au/ < - for full St185 and St165 Gt4 Exhaust systems - oem off the shelf - hightly reccomended and A1 quality! ( they do St205 dump pipes too i think )

http://www.importbitz.com.au/engine.htm <- Excellent source of second hand goodies - cam verniers , injectors , cams , etc etc for us - Plus johns a champ !

http://www.horsepowerinabox.com/HPIAB2/category12_1.htm <- garret turbos - found this one the other day - Very compeditive parts prices

http://www.autospeed.com.au/ <- check out their online shop for good deals on BOV's and the such - much cheaper than autobarn and those types

http://www.pwr.com.au/pwr/index_new.html < - seem to be compeditive for silicicon hose joiners + frontmount cores - they also have a decent water to air setup that would be perfect for Mr2's

thats a good start for now - theres heaps more tech articles ive gathered on how to do this and that - but thats good for another thread

$740 for this piece..
does anyone else find this quite overpriced?
if not plz explain.

think of it this way - its made - ready to go - straight in without farting about ..

would you pay for convenience ?

Or get someone to work on some piping for a few hours and charge you 60 + dollars an hour for their time to get it all clearing the rear diff ?

Then buy the muffler, for which a good one ranges around the $200+ mark - piping + get said piping coated seperately..

for a hundred or so- i like the idea that it goes straight in - no fuss no worries.

Plus its tried tested and decibel rated already - and i believe comes under all adr guidelines

Hmmm It depends who u go to..
I know a gt4 is different but yeah my celica cost me $140 to get 2.25" piping and a resonator..

$750 for a muffler is a bit much, U could get a decent redback muffler for $100, get them to install it for about $60 onto ur original pipe.. so for about $220 u could get a redback muffler and piping done in 2.5" or more...

Just yeah $750 is a fair bit personally. half the price of a new engine..

U won't be sure how they sound either!

lol in my mind way too much i mean u got to an zorst place u go i want that 3in cannon ($250...and that bit in 3in pipe...done max 500 drive and drive out..and still 3in mandrel!!!! and with 750 u still ahve to get the car on jacks adn what not and shit and fuck with the rubber moutns and shit to hook it up and get gaskets for the flanges...just go to zorst shop for anything apart the dump if u cna the good shit in that then good shit in the dumps and that it...just get the rest custom drive in-drive out at a exhaust shop!!

03-13-2005, 01:46 PM
sorry extra post..but that 3in mandrel s/steel exhuast from AVO is not a bad price if it turbo back but my arse it is for that price from a well known performance shop...really some of that shit is cheap..... good stuff...

i have an AVo 2.5 ich cat back system following the aussie stuff - acnd out of the two the avo stuff is SHITHOUSE dodgy and downright cheaply made ..

Compared to teh aussie piping - one looks like a kindergarden kids tacked it together - the other looks professionally made like some thoughts actually gone into it

remeber clearly there is more piping sections incovved in a gt4 over a FWD celica too, and a lot more work tog et it fitted correctly without fouling anything ..

Personally you cant compare a one off exhaust shop job to an OEM bolt on replacement thats had R+D over many years go into it ..

03-14-2005, 10:25 AM
i agree classique.. i got a closer look at the aussie pipe and it sure does look impressive.
i don't think i'll be buying it at this stage though. my engine needs alot of work done to it.

nods - good start - if you need advice or pointers on what areas to look at re motor to make her tougher - and more resliiant to later fun - just ask :)

03-14-2005, 11:11 AM
i'll try to catch you on IRC one day for better a discussion.
do you use it?

03-15-2005, 01:40 AM
yup - i am - i usually haunt #toyotamods on Austnet or lances #ozcelica now and then

Once again 3sgte_man runs off his mouth without thinking. Think of it this way: The amount of hours that it would take to make that pipe, in it's perfect shape so not to hit anything when flexed and to have it at that good quality would be huge. Not to mention we're talking about fitting a 3" pipe though a gap originally designed to fit a 2.5" pipe.

The only way to get something like this cheaper, and to get a full zorst system for anything less then $1,000 is to go straight under the rear axil. And that calls for one low hanging pipe. Unlike the FF's that have no rear axil to worry about.

So in this case, you do get what you pay for.

It all depends on what exhaust shop you go to.for the people that say: "takes hours of work and fiddling,measuring,clearance issues etc", you make it sound like your doing the work yourself.when its at the exhaust shop ,there the ones doing the work.so you dont have to worry.i went to a really good place,had a custom system turbo back made up,all mandrel bent.If anyone looks under my car,you will see its quality.all the joins have been grinded down and smoothed out,and sealed/painted all over.havn't had one problem with the system, sounds awesome and from what i can tell it performs fine power wise.
with the exhaust shop you have a warranty with the installation too which is worth something.With the FWD exhaust setups u still have to bend the piping up over the suspension arms.
my .02cents, but i prefer a good quality custom system, your not paying extra money for a brand. :)
