Do not be tempted by crank pulleys that do not have dampers. The OEM crank pulley includes a torsion vibration damper that protects the crankshaft from fatigue failure.Well I finally got a license plate on her, replaced the interior trim pieces that were missing and slapped a new serpentine belt in. The idler pulley makes a bit of racket now but I'll get around to it. Are there any reputable companies that make a pulley kit for the 1ZZ? I know when I had my FRS, Greddy made a beautiful 7 piece kit that I'd drool over.
The PPE header/catpipe that I sent off to Jet-Hot should be in today but I don't know when I'll be able to install it since we're about to get hit by yet another hurricane. Thankfully my job lets me hide in one of our warehouses. Stay safe out there!

Oh I'm aware. Fluidampr or bust. I was mostly interested in the accessory pulleys and idlers.Do not be tempted by crank pulleys that do not have dampers. The OEM crank pulley includes a torsion vibration damper that protects the crankshaft from fatigue failure.
The SMT was an attempt at an electronic shift manual transmission. It actually makes cars like this extra special because of the limited production, less than half of the cars produced were SMT. Many have been converted to full manual or scrapped because nobody knows how to fix them once they break. They had the advantage of 1 mpg more shown on the window sticker, cruise control and they were the only spyders in the US with a 6 speed. So you take a Phantom Red or Red Edition their model in Europe and realize this failure transmission was only on the spyder for a few years and Toyota scrapped the option. There are very few of these in other countries because Europeans like to shift their cars. Now many years later a low mileage car with a SMT becomes a unicorn of the Spyders. This one with the two year only limited slip also. My 2005 is like this one will less miles and a couple more options.Awesome ride. I want to know more about the SMT shifter setup. Is it just front to back actuation? Where is park? Is it smooth or does it kind of clunk between shifts like a motorcycle? Yesterday I found out these cars had SMTs from the factory. I find it amazing that a production car is equipped with these type of transmissions.
Thanks for the wisdom. I didn't know there was an optioned shift knob. Do you have a photo of it by chance?You dont have CF dash, factory wheel locks, first aid kit, shift knob, emergancy road kit but you have the good stuff. Limited slip alarm and floor mats
