I bought my MX73 cressida in August, drove it until winter and have been keeping it safe and warm in the garage while I amass piles of parts and save for the upcoming madness.

This past Friday my buddy Tom and I pulled the 5M out
(anyone want a 5MGE?)

Kind of a shame to pull a nice clean running motor, but it's making way for much better things.

Posted Image


On saturday I drove down to Montreal and picked up a soarer 1JZ

Posted Image

When I picked it up I looked at a lot of busted ass motors before I found this one. Not the cleanest ever, but the price was good, compression tested 170 across the board and had a 3" downpipe so I figured I might find a couple more goodies.

When I split the engine and trans today I found something weird. The clutch slave setup didn't look normal.

and then I got a closer look and got excited.

ORC twin plate clutch and lightweight flywheel good for 600 horsepower. 220,500 Yen (~$2800) MSRP

$*%@ing score.

I'll probably check for cams tomorrow.

Tom told me that you would give me that clutch as a bday present.

So I'm gonna drop by in a couple of weeks to pick it up.

clutch worth more than twice the car? baller.

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.

Finally got it running today. I haven't been very good about updating this thread, but I'll upload some more pics and get an update together this weekend.

Here's a shitty little video of the first startup. Ignore my babbling and listen to the sweet sounds of my JZ.

Finally, a long overdue update.


setting up to weld a T3 flange onto the T4 flange so my holset will fit. I made a center rib and welded it in to keep it divided and smoothed the transition between the t3 and t4 flanges.

turbo oil feed hard-line I bent up (there's a 1.5mm restrictor inside the end of the line)
Posted Image


I used the stock front turbo feed banjo, cut it and used a compression fitting to hook up the hard line I made

the downpipe taking shape

fitting up the IC piping before welding

Exhaust finished. 3 inch mild steel, summit racing glasspack into 3 inch in 2x2.25 out magnaflow muffler, looks fairly stock from the back.

Shifter location is about a bit far back in the hole, but I only had to trim 1/4 inch or so around the back.

It's a JZZ30 soarer transmission and custom mounts. When I made the mounts I had no idea where the shifter was going to end up, just made sure the oil pan wasn't going to hit either the crossmember or sway bar and things turned out pretty well.
