Alright, so here it is. My zenki '91 x83 . I've been lurkin' on here for a long time now, and have been building it up properly. I already did an intro a long time ago and didn't want to waste anyone's life with a failure build thread until I had it running. So here she is.

I drove around looking like this for a while, took a trip across Canada, from Saskatoon,Sk, out to Vancouver, Victoria and Tofino, and back, on a 7m-ge. So I will leave that engine at that respect level. I sold it to a friend with a mk2 Supra.

This is running by the way, Ill put up a video as soon as I upload it onto the computer. Yes those are actual x8 headlight covers from my minty blue parts car. Yeah I know the engine bay is a little dirty, but getting the car on the road is more important at this point.

I mocked up my bn sports front to see how it fit over the modified x83 bumper frame. I still have bodywork and paint to do.

The tilted short shifter fits great, I know the red boot looks gross, but its just temporary. The w55 is300 should work fine until I go single. R154 is the way of the future. Guage mounting plate also temporary.

I have to give out some props to xcessive mfg for their perfect fitting seat bracket, engine brackets and mounts. Their stuff looks amazing and and works amazing. Also gotta thank Big Shooter for hooking me up with a schmorgasbord of parts on this car including wheels, tein coils to name a few. Also thanks to Jack and Alex for the BN aero.

I gotta give credit to Guy 'Smiley' on my harness. Runs amazing on the x90 ecu. It was basically pnp except for T5 plug and very minor wiring jobs. Its amazing what him and Aphexero do to our falling apart 20+ year harnesses.

So at this point i'm waiting on a map sensor from Austrailia. I'm about to go and paint up my haggered garage walls and install my fmic. Then I have to switch my front halfshaft to an mx73 so the splines match the w55 and order a w55 clutch slave (as w58 is not compatible). After that get an electric fan, then I should be able to take it out for a test drive and work out the details. My plans for the near future is to install my HY35 holset with a driftmotion header and downpipe kit. Tune my safc, swap out the 440's for 550's, install BN side and rear skirts, and maybe next year a complete paint job and r154 swap.

Once all is said and done, I can utilize my extra two doors , the right way.

Yep, Alex's old bn sports aero. I bought his sides and rear as well, since hes moved up to origin and s9 aero. Unfortunately the x81 aero was sold just yesterday to a fellow in Vancouver. I had it all up for sale first on jzxp, 4 months ago and nobody responded to my ads. I'm not sure what side skirts they are, but they are ridiculously rare and oldschool. It all looked really good originally on Cams car I think. I am looking into options for having copies of the bn made, I mentioned it to G from s9, so that may be one option.

your side skirts are actually awesome and I'm really not a fan of bodykits
Maybe it's a cultural thing? I mean, we saw the British coming. India, they did not.

The good news: Did a mock up of my new used aero. I still need to de-decal , sand , glass and paint them.

Ok so that's what a bn sports kit looks like on a Cressida.

The bad news: is300 w55 swaps on an mx83 are useless, don't even bother its a waste of time and money. Shifter sits too far backwards, so you either have to cut a rank hole just in front of the e brake, or sit your engine far as fuck forwards and not have a long enough driveshaft. Not to mention the is300 is the same as an x73, in that it is a 21 spline as compared to a typical 23 for x83. I called every drive shaft shop in town and they don't have metric anything, and to make a long story short, it would cost me 700 hundred bucks worth of machining to make my custom 55&13/16ths " drive-shaft. So before I waste any more money i'm going to ditch the whole POS and get an r154 and use my supra shaft, spend money on a bell housing and all the hardware. I thought I was going to be on the road in a week, looks like it will be a few more months now.

Does anyone have any idea why my shit isn't lining up? Are custom drive shafts typical to a w55/8 swap?

Unfortunately I sold the original x81 aero in a mad dash to buy alex's kit. I wish i had it for daily driving/ sleeping on people. I decided i'm going to sell the w55 to a soarer buddy and go all out with an r154, thus solving the drive shaft/ shifter issue. It will put me back on my launch date to mid fall but whatever, its proper. No point in going with an inferior transmission if I plan on going single and tuning for 400+ hp.

I am now officially single. Moving on.

I bashed out my transmission tunnel and hoisted the front of my engine up so the rear would be angled down. The idea was to get my bell housing to clear the tunnel when I mate it. The transmission fitment isn't the issue now. The problem now is that I cant get the transmission to mate. Its like the input shaft is hitting the splines on the clutch disk, or maybe the end of the shaft wont go in the pilot bearing.

Now I know that this is far easier with the engine out and on the ground, but I just really don't feel like pulling my running engine out of the bay again. Has anyone done it my way before, and is it sometimes tricky to get to go in? My arms are beat and i'm going to try again on the weekend with an extra buddy.

I'll post some pictures soon.

Tell me something I don't know, I'm working with a local company to have it copied. Right now I'm more concerned with making my car drivable.
