I was checking out their blog (rallyxd.com), and saw they have a trd strut bar that came off their donor show car. Tried to ask them on Facebook about the part number. Do any of you guys have any info? I'm just curious.
Also if anybody can go into detail about the rear drum disk swap. Parts? That would be some awesome info!

They took a lot of parts off that show car for spares. They pulled the motor and sent it to Greddy to have it built. That old show car is mostly a shell now.

You could just make a template out of cardboard then design up a skid plate from there. I never got around to making my own so I cant help with the design but the cardboard method is how I would go about doing it.

Oregon Trail Rally this weekend. Scion is having an event at TheSlate again this year. I will be there to check out the car and chat up the crew on Thursday and will be checking out the Friday night special stages at PIR. Hope to get some good pics.

Sweet, the Sparco Rally xD finished 2nd in class and 5th overall. Great job guys. Sounds like the course was hard on all the cars. The xD was 1st in class when they had brake issues on one stage that caused them to lose time to the fast Aussie team.

Thanks for all the shared info RallyXD! In the process of turboing my 2010 Pontiac Vibe, powered by the 2ZR-FE... I already have the emanage ultimate installed, slowly putting together hard parts.

Did you ever blow the stock internal engine? What pistons/rods are you using? Part numbers?

---------- Post added at 10:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:20 PM ----------

And what turbo are you using currently? Including turbine housing cm, if possible. I thought I read you had a TD04HL-19T...

I have a TD04HL-16T-7cm on the way. I sized it based on the 2ZR's VE and low boost. The 16T appeared to be the very best compromise...

I am using a Volvo version, with an internal BPV built into the compressor housing.
