    It's OK... in short:
    You have a GDA chassis
    Your motor is the EJ205.

    It's what we'd expect

    i have one more long model number to add to that. cant confirm it because obviously i dont have the car yet, but it seems fairly likely that the ecu is a "A4SD900A" busy reading on what will work best with it

    new discovery my car has AEM EMS engine management. or at least i'm pretty sure it does. I matched up the little box below the steering on the interwebs (hmmm... sounds like I'm pretty boring)

    It's designed around North American fuel, which in itself can differ vastly across the US and Canada depending on region. I wouldn't run an off the shelf map on African fuel personally. Not familiar with the fuel in Zim, but I know that in general the quality of African fuel is much different from NA fuel. The Cobb may "work", but it's a risk.

    If you end up having to go with an e-tune, I'd highly recommend a wide band O2 sensor.

    Zimbabwe fuel is 93 ron. but since I discovered I have a AEM EMS, I'm going to find someone who can e-tune it (actually 83 ron, silly me)

    This the car I sold to pay for my bugeye. It's a 1997 Caldina GT-T. It uses a more advanced version of the 3SGTE engine from the Celica GT-Four, and uses the GT-four's 4WD system. It was making about 285-295bhp when I sold it.

    @jd92677, You guys get some pretty interesting cars too, I wouldn't mind a burbling V8 on the weekends, but unfortunately Most American cars aren't really suited to Zimbabwe, we have small parking spaces, narrow roads, etc...

    I Have also found out about my car's suspension It's using "Cusco 667 618 SCTR/L" which I believe are called "Comp-S"

    Hmmm, I really don't know very much about suspension, but I need to learn, because I want to get a bit more ground clearance on the car, because as is I think it will have problems with all the potholes and speed bumps in Zimbabwe.

    Finally, after like 2 months of waiting. I picked my scooby up on Friday night and drove it back on Saturday (587Km or so). It's got a lifetimes worth of dirt on it, the radio got stolen, and the tires are in pretty bad shape, but otherwise it seems to be going pretty damn well going to clean it today, then I look around for some Castrol Edge oil to put in it tomorrow. I'm waiting for my Denso Iridiums to land , then I'll stick those in too. I'm also going to try and get a HKS, Greddy, K&N pad air filter for it, the one that's in it currently is pretty dirty, and has some oil on it.

    Righto! cars booked in, to have all major fluids flushed (engine oil, coolant, gearbox oil, brake fluid and diff oil)
    Got myself some Denso IK24's so thats plugs sorted, and I have a perrin pad air filter floating it's way towards me. next purchase is a timing belt kit (pulleys, seals, pretensioner and water pump included) and replacement radiator and ancillary hoses, then a aluminium racing radiator. after that theres the small matter of losing the cats, getting a fat ass exhaust and getting it tuned :P and a HKS SSQV some where along the line, would simply be awesome

    tis going strong, running 1.1Bar of boost. and giving me incredible fuel economy 11km per litre my caldina was sitting on 4-6km per litre.
