the situation i have "works" and i dont think i get much for fumes, not like previously when the tunnel was wide open. i only have a weekend of driving it so not an everyday sort of thing.

the s13 has the shifter boot to the trans, then a thin plastic, then another condom, then a metal plate to sandwich the bunch together, then the shift boot, its always worked well, just a lot of layers, which is what i was trying to do for mine

mkiii shift stuff has those layers too.

My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

havent touched the cressida in a while, been working slowly on the supra. made some 20mm longer LCAs, and short knuckles, found the oem tie rods at max length have about 5 threads of engagement so ive got to look at a replacement for that. currently the rear is in the air, going to drop everything down and head over to bcworks and get some diff and subframe bushings made, then moidfy my rear LCAs some more, paint those, finish and clean and seal the towers now that i know this rediculous situation 'works' also added some needle bearings to the front of the supra and will be to the cressida for the constant stance problem of spring bind. the bearings are in good shape and i keep them clean on the supra, and oddly enough they only add one spring shim per coilover instead of two, i think it would help a little bit with the bind they have, oddly enough stance now offers these same needle bearings as an add on, or might be standard equipment by now. 

also added an oil filter relocate and oil cooler to the supra

Is that a porsche 968 or an fc35? in the back corner of your compound?

Regardless I'm loving the progress on the supra.

 

Fuck me you have an old kawasaki zx7 ninja to? Fuck me man that's sweet.

Your lucky to have s13 coupe.They are hard to find locally.

Im jelly.




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.

That's a friend of mines FC, surprised you could tell, everything is hidden lol. The s13 I've had it for 10? Years. Civic is a lot of fun, I started a grip racingthing here locally called grippy feet, lots of fun to do that stuff with the civic. The zxr needs the forks rebuilt. Two mechanics have nailed on me, waiting for a third to finish a buddies bike then mine can go in the I can drive it. Bury yourself with projects and never really be happy

not sure if you guys are interested in the Supra or not? as its neither JZ nor X chassis, but this has been what ive been working on the last few weeks.  After this is put back together i got a couple things i want to do on the cressida, then drive it to Bills to get tuned, then do more suspension stuff and put in my kaaz diff, put shorter LCAs in, raise it a tad in the front, might happen naturally when i shorten the LCAs, 40mm is too much . i can only run a 9 +30 and the wheel sits perfect...i need lower :(

 

anyways

 

dropped the subframe last weekend and knocked out the bushings in the subframes...came out in 20seconds each lol. bless the air hammer. dismantled the whole thing. every single piece popped right off, no hiccups, a first for me. very stunned.
dropped the frames off at bcworks to get some aluminum solid bushings made, should raise the frame a 1/4inch or so.
 
then i took apart the LCAs, added some welds to the drop bars on the LCAs bcworks made, we did this on the car..painted them and cut the tops out of the spring perch to make a halo, minor weight savings but still retains the 'strength' of the connecting the half moon. also took off the bracket that would puncture the body on repeat. cut slits into the brake line holders so i can take them off without taking the whole line off and still keep the line away from the wheel.
 
i tend to buy paint and play with colours quite a bit, and had this east coast grey in the cabinet, had green and blue pearl in it, so i primed the LCAs, then shot that east coast grey, then shot painthuffer's blue tang metal flake on top, turned out really neat and really pops in the sun and also in low light. all the fun things. cleaned up the shoes as well, and WOW, theres next to no shoe left and my goodness, the ebrake is amazing on such little material, im just blown away. checked out the pads and looks like one side is wear more than the other so ill have to check and see if the brakes are working alright.
 
also made some try again plates for the exhaust as i wore through, funny enough, only one spot. most of the exhaust is flattened into an oval..ill be redoing it when i go SR eventually. painted that too for fun

did some more arts and crafts. finally cleaned, painted and sealed the towers, also added a thick bar in there as a strut brace, still clears battery and creates a barrier for it to protect it. then flaked the heck out of it

Mk-IIs are cool,

but an SR ??

 

You will have the ghosts of dead Toyota & Nissan designers haunting you.

Good god, go Beams, or built 22R with a big turbo.

I must be the only person in the world that hates the 22r for anything other than getting you across Africa on the worst fuel possible to go to a vigil for harambe. It's only good characteristic is seriously its ability to still push something along with almost everything wrong with it.
Maybe it's a cultural thing? I mean, we saw the British coming. India, they did not.

Now a 2rz, from 03/04 with COP, that sounds cool. Use same trans/clutch setup, they hold power, and I always felt there must be a way to run one on caldina factory management for boost if you could do it cheaper than megashart.

The 2RZ is an option as well. 2 friends locally are doing turbo 2RZ's on their corollas. everything with them is custom, all very cool stuff, lots of money to get to that point. I have an SR in my s13 and have a bunch of parts and I would leave it stock with bolt ons. i have a ton of spare parts and could do it for a lot less than a 2RZ.  Id be taking the SR out of my s13 and put another SR in the s13 because i have all the stuff to build one. the 7.5 diff and axles and all that stuff explodes with 250lbfts. so a stock SR is a decent amount of boogy for this rust bucket. all the cooling parts would be within the engine bay even and the motor will be far back. the cressida is what im focusing the JZ on as all JZ parts are a lot of money for no reason here in canada, and our dollar has been shit for a few years now to go to anywhere but Japan for parts.

 

Beams has no guts and theyre as much as an SR WITH a transmission.

2RZ is all custom

NA 2J is same power and torque as a SR Turbo

already have a 1JZ and a trans alone is 700-1k here lol

 

putting any money into the M motors is a waste of time as im not a machinist or a mechanic t hat takes apart motors every 10k kms

the 5M will be in there til it dies. i have no intention of killing it for no reason and it does burnouts currently, but its the worst 5M as its a 82, low comp, specific to the year parts and might as well be carb'd

bolt on some RAS.

supras are ok, i mean at least we will know what youve got on it if you ever decide to part it. going out on a limb and saying the mk2 is prob the "best" one to have from the ownership perspective because you associate with far fewer faggy fags than you would for the later generations.

That rear end build looks like fun.. Going to be doing something similar to my 1985 Celica GTS relatively soon. Are you counting on the spacers to raise the subframe enough to fix the camber issues with these cars? Or are you going to relocate the inner LCA mounts to reduce camber even more?

I actually really dig these supras, I want one bad. 2rz is fucking sick 3rz is specially sick! More pricey but 2.7 4 cyl is sick. It fucking moved my 4Runner non turbo.

RAS?
I want more camber.. sort of, so I can clear the rear wats. I have to mod the flares a little bit to get some more clearance.

I figured that's what you meant by RAS.
I don't daily my cars so I put minimal mileage on them.
I don't sell or part my cars, I tend to destroy them and then thats it. Had it for 3 yrs now and my busted looking s13 for 10 now. Once this thing is back together I'll be working on the jzx.
