HEY! how's it going??? MADDDDD ride fella! I love the colour coded front/back bars, and side skirts! I've done that to my white TX5. I've even colour coded the wipers! the only thing lackin in my car's appearance now is the rims!

I'm interested to know what your rims are?! cos in some of your pics, there are non-stock rims, the white ones. I'd like to learn more about them!

also, do u know of any TX5 clubs in melbourne?? I really wanna organise an all tx5 meet/cruise....I'm insane about the car, especially the AT and AV models!

anyhow, i'll hear form ya later!

hey mate
gr8 car, i thought it was my car at first, i got an exact clone.
i recommend tinting the blinkers and stop lights.

any way i still have the stock turbo on and i have been succesfull blowing v8 vp's vr's and some wrx's but 175 kw atw is a dream come tru 4 me. can u email me on and give me names of compatible turbos i can fit in, and the work that might have to associate? dont mind if u throw in an estimate price as well

cheers mate, keep up the good work!

hey, cant wait to buy my dad's tx5 turbo off him for $2500 (what he paid for) crazy i know but i was wondering what u need to turn up the PSI within the turbo of the tx5, any sites i can go to, to find out or do i need a turbosmart boost control kit?

Posted by: zorb_rules on December 5, 2004 [ Car Profile ]

dude best beat to up the psi you'll need a boost controller (digital or analog), boost gauge to actually make sure your running safe boost, and depending on how much you want to run a new computer/fuel cut defender/chip so that the car does not die on ya everytime cause your running too much boost

Posted by: jettx5 on February 14, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

how did you rip out 14psi
what are you runing a fuel cut defender or computer or what?

Hey JeTx5,
this question is absolutely driving me nutters hey, has anyone heard of anyone being able to get the same type of twin lights as the TX3? i think it would look awesome on a TX5 but i would love to know what work is needed to be able to get these lights on or even have them custom made (which at the moment seems the go) but if i were to, where in the world would i be able to make my dream come true lol??? anyways, thanx for reading...


Posted by: zorb_rules on February 14, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

looks shit house to be honest mate ive seen the tx3 lights of 3 diff tx5's one was a show car and they were the shittest bit on the whole was just a basic swap..that obviously took a heap of cutting and fibreglassing looked shit also and the 3rd looked alright but still didnt suit the car..i'd suggest not doing it..and if ya gonna do it as ya dream to be "indvidual" smile.gif try something else *lol* cause its been done..but hey if ya like it go for it..

Posted by: jettx5 on February 18, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

yeah i know all that

what are YOU using on you car?


Posted by: zorb_rules on February 18, 2005 [ Car Profile ]

looking at the front lights off a supra actually why you ask??? they fit not too bad after ya cut out a small portion of your ya plastic around ya thats what ill be hoping to do...

Posted by: LOW_TX5 on July 8, 2005 [ Car Profile ]
