  1. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)

  2. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey guys, I have a 2008 Corolla CE with the 1zzfe and a 5 speed transmission. I've been looking into a turbo kit from turbokits.com and I've decided to order it in the spring. I know these 5 speeds have been somewhat unreliable in a stock application, and I'm just wondering if anyone has any...
  3. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    It's been a long time coming. The car drives great! Just needs a good clean and detail! The Matrix community on instagram came in clutch and got me in contact with a gent who has lowered his Matrix XRS on Celica coilovers, helped me out a bunch!

  5. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey everyone, I think I can start to call my little Matrix a build. I'm beyond happy so far, keeping it simple, level with the kind of car it is, and tons of smiles per mile. Every major change I've done is listed here: -Pioneer AVH 25550 NEX Head Unit -Painted engine beauty cover and exhaust...

    I have a 2005 Corolla XRS which hasn’t had a working e-brake since I bought it, it had rear disk brakes with a drum hand brakeoriginally it was seized, but after purchasing the power stop drilled and slotted rotors I also purchased a new spring kit and pads for the hand brake. I was able to get...
  7. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    I have a 2005 XRS, I was interesting in doing the R9ktuned.com ECU reflash: Lower Lift Point – 5600 – 6000rpm (depends on supporting engine mods) Raise Rev Limiter – 8600 – 9000rpm (depends on supporting engine mods) Fuel Maps Revised Ignition Maps Revised VVT-i Cam Phasing Revised CEL/DTC Code...

    Just got an XRS from Copart with a clean title. Sadly it has 262K miles on it but I plan on replacing the engine and transmission later. Its also my first time driving a manual and its very difficult to not stall it. Just wanted some tips on how to take care of it for now. Some notes -The gas...
  9. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    The fitment is a little off, but I'm honestly happy enough with it. It's a K&N Typhoon. It sounds amazing, the little 4 banger sounds pretty aggressive for what it is. Looking at a TRD Strut brace next since that's also super easy. Just need to buy a torque wrench for that. According to...

    Hey everyone, this summer in finally planning on installing some mods to my 2010 Matrix XRS. One of them being one of the only TRD parts for my car, the strut brace that runs behind/above the engine. I just want some foresight before I dive in. Obviously I'll need some wrenches, but do I...
  11. Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hi everyone, I'm aware of the now seemingly ancient thread about modifications here, however, I'm wary of buying the wrong part and having to go through returning the part. I'm new to cars in general, and I'm eager to learn more about them as a side hobby. Like any teenager, I want to slap some...

    I have a 2006 corolla xrs entire brake systems were removed and have drained as the car was getting fully repainted engine bay etc...

    Hi all, I have an 05 Corolla XRS and the handbrake assembly on both sides is completely toast, and I need new lines ran as well. However, winter is starting and there's a significant amount of snow on the ground. If I get all the parts including the backing plate for the hand brake on either...
  14. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    So my 2005 corolla XRS is running into a strange issue. the car has a 2002 Celica 2zz-ge motor (i have replaced the lift bolts) and I have been running into an issue where when ever I enter the high cam my car will begin to run extremely rich and run rough until my car come to a complete stop. I...

  16. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hi guys, I've been experiencing an annoyance with my car lately. When I'm in first or second gear, and starting from a stop or a lower speed, when I hit the gas and let off the clutch I hear a low creaking sound from the drivers side, either in the A or B pillar. I just got new front struts...

  18. Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey all, I'm trying to do some preventative maintenance to my 2005 Corolla XRS with 115k miles. I bought all of my parts from RockAuto, including an ITM timing chain kit (tensioner, guides and chain only). I didn't realize how much the OEM timing chain cost, though. the ITM chain kit was...
  19. Introduce Yourself Here
    Just purchased an '05 Matrix XRS. It's a gamble, the car already has 290k miles on it but the price was right. There are a few issues I'm going to need to address but I'm hoping it'll be still be good fun transportation for another 50k or more. Looking forward to jumping into the forums to learn...
