had to create a new account to post, guess cos I've not been back for a while :/ but anyway I've got a 2013 YR but with a few additions, cruise control that I picked up thanks to a member here, 15" wheels, fog lights etc, got a cat back custom exhaust fitted recently and sound good, soon to fit some pedders sports riders to lower it a tad :)

I am trying to source a set of headers that will fit the 1.3lt 2NZ-FE engine with not much luck as well as a reasonable cold air kit. Any leads for suppliers in Australia would be great.

Hey willie, nice to hear from another Aussie 👍 who did your exhaust system? Not sure if there are many oz suppliers for Yaris stuff.... may have to look in Japan or the US, although postage may be costly.

Some pics once the pedders are fitted would be awesome!

Cheers
Lep

Exhaust was done by a local shop, took a few goes though, first was front resonator delete to a straight pipe, it was obnoxious then tried a small muffler and it was to quite ended up with a "baffled" SS resonator at the rear a mild steel in the middle, I'm not totally happy but it's pretty close and given I'm putting headers (got a lead on some) on it will change again, but it has mellowed with use

Kinda funny a 43yr old souping up a little 1.3ltr roller-skate but it's a fun little rocket

Nothing wrong with any age souping up any car 👍 mine is the 1.5lt, but I've been told by the minister for war and finance (the missus) that the budget is fish bum tight.... we shall see haha

Australian yaris mods!!

Hi all,
I am not from Australia but I will post anyway :p
This is my 2009 5 door yaris. 1.33L 100hp 6speed manual. I think it has the terra package but I am not sure.

It's 100% stock right now. I am the only owner I bought it brand new. Current miles: 105.500. Zero problems whatsoever. I am really taking care of it. Imagine, I haven't even changed clutch, or suspension, or disk brakes so far. They are in good condition even after so many miles.
As you see in the pictures, my first mod will be these jvc cs-620x speakers. I am going to fit them in the weekend. Time to upgrade the poor sound quality of the stock speakers. Also I am planning to do some soundproof in the front doors with glass wool, if I am calling it right to boost even more the new speakers. It's way more cheaper than dynamat products. Not that effective tho, but it's better than nothing.

Plannings in the near feature:
•Chrome rings on the circle air vents.
•Exhaust tip
•maybe a new leather gear knob cause mine has damages
•interior led lights
•black vvti tags near the fender's turn signals

Plannings in the far feature:
•Rear spoiler
•soundproof in the rear doors
•amplifier to boost my rms output (I might do this in near feature. It depends from the sound quality I will have from the new speakers )
•windows tint
•paint calipers red and put TRD sticker on them

Wish list (no money no honey):
•turbo kit
•aftermarket pioneer headunit

Zero knowledge of how to do it:
•floor mat led lights
•interior lights dimming. (So they close slowly)
•front console tint with some brushed aluminum or 4D carbon fiber vinyl.
•Day-led-lights

Not yet, finishing of the exhaust side first, I'm waiting on a set of headers from the states I hope they will fit

Then it will be onto the suspension, haven't bought them yet as I'm hunting around the net for other (cheaper) options, but if I don't find anything it will be pedders, actually looking at king springs now as I've used them on previous vehicles and they've popped up in my searches as suitable.

This is it at the moment, just a daily driver, dirt, bugs and all

They are "fog lights" but they are plug and play, I got mine from Ebay, all the wiring is there ready to go except the stalk switch, just need a button that fits in a blank near the mirror adjustment, same as the cruise control. pretty sure the instruction are on here somewhere as well.
