Keg is overpriced run of the mill food plated as elegant when it is not. Probably my why so many went under.
I'm curious what a new one or returned one will cost. We don't have a lot of is300s in the yards..let alone having much for local yards as it is. Does only Toyota sell the rebuild kits? I know my bearings are shot, the pulley wobbled quite a bit

Keg makes a really good burger imo.Nice chuck,brisket,and sirloin mix.There steaks and seafood aren't bad as well.I also enjoy the eye candy.

 

Pics are killer.Looks like a good day.




take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.

Going to politely disagree with you on The Keg.  Maybe a little overpriced, but the food is decent. And yeah, all the waitresses are fine as hell there.  

 

I would just ebay the pump, they're super easy to find.  I vaguely recall them having a full rebuild kit, but if not, it's only a gasket, a bearing and a few o-rings.  Not that hard to order the parts individually through the dealer.

Great pics!

I'll have to live vicariously through you as I'm missing all my local events because of the paint project. Weather has been unpredictable here lately. Cold, windy, and raining, none of which are good painting conditions.

 

Good to see people going out and ripping.

local one was great unless you know anything at all about cooking your own steak, then they became superfluous because their bar was mediocre and the waitresses, while hot, tended to fuck the waiters and managers at the restaurant more than anyone else.

seriously, get a cast iron pan for <$20 usd and buy your meat from not walmart/target. if youre old enough to shit all over your life by being a jzxp member but you cant make a steak then you deserve to fuck off and die.

great pics, tell that guy w the circa 2005 turbo setup hes still better off than me.

Steaks cooked over a nice charcoal mesquite wood chip blend on a  bbq grill are the best imo.

Cast iron pans are for ground beef and bacon.

 

Chris what are those silver 5 spoke mag wheels your running in the rear of the first few pics? Stern?

They look good!

 

Chrisol you need to make more "jzxp ruined my life" stickers and the other hks influenced one you made.I lost mine ffs.

I ran the advans, then nismo lmgt2, then SSR Vienna something or others, I have them written down somewhere.

I cook myself so spending 40+ for steak and a potatoe is beyond me. I grill on propane grill or inside depending if I ran out of propane or if it's really cold outside. I have not found a use for a cast iron skillet and still fail to comprehend them

Searing is not my forte.

Cast iron pan is a camping must have.

I'm not too big on regas. I have some 16inch ones for my civic in that gunmetal colour and they're evia with stickers, still can't fully get behind them. Like the te's I feel they're very over rated...but I also say that about a lot of Japanese wheels after owning so many. Still far ahead of any other wheels outside of Japan though. I still crush on nismo lmgt4s but that still fades too :/

Pan drippings is life, it's so extra

So, locally the pump is 180 +core of 200 lol and they're special order so no returns, and they're just remans. I'll look for a used one soon. Insurance runs out soon so I'll be using the supra again while I fix this. I wanna go over a couple of things since skidding. Happy with the power and weird gearing for our track. The curse, continues

If you're talking about Akina Motorsport's JZ to W bellhousing, the company is local to me in AZ. They don't have a good reputation as far as mechanical work and wiring for swaps, but I know a couple people using their bellhousing with decent luck. Then again, their cars aren't driven everyday.

insured the supra today and swapped PS pumps on the cressida. the pump has in and out play, not sure if thats normal or not. it promotes a tiny wobble, which is what eventually kills all pumps...so not really interested in replacing this yet again. my mounts are all tight and keep it sturdy...maybe my oem pulley is just too worn on the splines? it had side to side play before i put the nut on there.

 

anyways. a friend of mine got rear ended the other week, and it looks like i might be buying his na 2j out of his altezza gita. got a W to JZ bell the other months ago...would be nice to bring this car into this decade..sort of. vvti 1jz in cdn money are in the 3k range and i wasnt too keen on that, no matter how you slice it. in this case, my diff and axles and stub things might last longer this way...and a na 2j takes to boost pretty easy so i can go down that route someday as well.

 

just got to attempt to fix this starting issue and it would make a decent daily driver even.

I just picked up a PS pump from an "Altezza" at the pick n pull the other week. I'm debating whether I slap it on my car, attempt to rebuild it, or just buy a reman. I want to save money, but I hate servicing PS pumps when they are on the car and hooked up.

i got a reman and a rebuild kit for the current one. i had limited options and didnt want to fuck with a used one.

locals here, a group of BMW guys who run mostly chevy motors in them, have a member with a vvti 2jz in one and his PS never worked right. he had his high pressure solenoid on the pump and his rack doesnt have one. i dont think he ever tried hooking up the solenoid to work in any capacity but all the things he did do, didnt work.  then they made a conversion pump using a GM pump that has the reservoir on it.  same serpentine belt was used and pulley matched up too. its pretty trick and works real good.  reman or new oem pumps for the chevy thing is cheap as chips too
