i will update the how to and put pics better.
i run dicktator without a problem, installed like a dream and works well, just working on the idle control valve, but it idles ok , cold start is fine.
i find it is lighter of fuel on highway than the 1300 was, but it struggles with the long ratio box on uphills, but on the level it is fine.
it is silent, feels like its factory fitted, but you must use the in tank fuel pump, this is a must.
i can do the conversion for you, i live in roodepoort, you are welcome to pop past and come drive my tazz, and see my work first hand.
if you have all the parts, the conversion will take me a weekend, with basic map, then you can drive it away and have it dynoed at your convenience.
as far as maintenance, i use normal plugs, no problems so far, i only use helix yellow bottle and oem toyota oil filter on both my supercharged and 20v.
R400 to R500 for full service.
i changed the thermostat, it was fubar, started up, ran for a day, changed oil again and new filter.
my VVT is a bit rowdy, but it works fine, but i assumed i will have to change it in future, no biggie, the motor itself is in excellent condition.
cost wise you looking at about :
dizzy mod DIY
fuel pump 500?, secondhand, not sure new.
fuel line 300
service kit 400
misc bits 500
prices may be cheaper on some, but this is what i found
