First things first, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE FUCK I'M DOING!!!

That being said, if this thing ever runs, it's because I fucked up a lot of shit, spent a shit ton of money, and found JZXP. If it doesn't, I'll set it on fire, accept that I suck at life, and move on.

GOALS: To be done-ish (are they ever done?) by spring break 2011
500whp on 1jzvvti with stock cams
Break my douche stepdad off on his 1000rr with my x8

REALITY: It has rod knock when it fires and it never works


Started with this about a year ago, $300, bhg
<img src="http://i742.photobuc...3/PICT0027.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />



Spent all my money on 5spd swap and hg set and was off with ice cold ac. Drove it to the drivetrain shop with like a half inch of shaft engaged, pulled it in the Goodwill parking lot, waited for 2 hrs, and was off again.

<img src="http://i742.photobuc...struckster.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />



Thought I was cool til I heard it knock, so I did the only logical thing a broke kid can do and bought another x8 and r154 and shit off cl.
<img src="http://i742.photobuc...3/PICT0069.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />


And a Supra, and made shit happen over the first available weekend.

<img src="http://i742.photobuc...3/PICT0200.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />



So then that bitch started knocking too, so I cut it up and had it crushed. I'll find the pics later.

So I fucked up again, bought this. Wish registration was open back then so yall could have berated and belittled me into doing a reasonable na swap and I could be driving my car instead of crying.
<img src="http://i742.photobuc...3/PICT0203.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />


Did the first smart thing, blew my wad (haha) intended for the x on a 2005 focus and got a delivery job at pizza hut and started stackin$$$$$$$$$$!
<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/9b54bfc5.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />


Bought a bunch of shit that didnt get me any further towards a fire, but will turn out cool. Here's a tease:
<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/1aecfffe.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />

<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/3bd1df30.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />



Turbo's toast, so I bought this.
<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/6a90c516.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />


Then I got tired of the Cressida headache, but still wanted to be cool since Cressidas are deemed cool, so I bought this hoping oneday someone will mistake it for an x8 and think I'm cool.
<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/eaa3e924.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />

And did this:
<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/09ece32b.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />

<img src="http://i746.photobuc...e/a8016bdb.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" />


FUCK Cressidas and 1jzvvti, yall can have this shit!!! I'm done!!!

So yeah, found this bitch about 30 mins North of me for my magic fucking number,$300. Left work early on a Wednesday, stole my gf's caravan and rented a trailer to "move into a new house" and burned off to get it. Four hours later it was sitting at my work and I was at the 2nd job slangin pizzas.

Rolled it off the trailer Friday morning solo, both helpers gayed out. Got to work.

And now it sits. Waiting on a stupid adapter plate to get finished so I can start figuring out where to place shit. Getting impatient though, so if shit ain't happening by this weekend I'll probably have a t3 flange welded on the stock manifold cause that's holding me back. Well, that and cash. But cash is coming. I'm a month AHEAD on all my bills, and using all my money this coming week to stay that way, got my xmas money put up too, so it's time to make shit happen. I figure the next 2 months will be saving, followed by a month of splurging.


This is why I'm getting impatient, I want to mount this bitch!

Just got it back today. Probably gonna port the wastegate out tomorrow. Gonna be running the ct15 actuator with an extended rod for now.
4 inch all the way back. Harness is pretty much done, but my soldering has gotten better, so I'm gonna tear it apart again soon. Going to fire it on stock electronics to try and work out all the bugs, then the standalone comes in. Fuck wasted spark, fuck maf.

I've got a pretty good idea what I'm going to do for suspension, t3 style coilovers, but looking at different inserts than mr2, and custom spring rates. But that's a ways off, right now I just want to hear it run within the next 6 months.


THIS IS NOT A DRIFT CAR!!!!! IT WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE SLAMMED!!!!!!!! IT WILL PROBABLY NEVER RUN!!!!!!!!!


Cool shit comin in a couple months.

that dash is fucked to shit. do you want a slightly less cracked red dash?

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.

Thanks man, but Both dashes in my other cars were super clean on top, so I'm gonna dye one of them.

Redbull, I bet $100 that 2011 is the year of the vvti 1j. It's just that time, someones gonna step up to the plate and make shit happen, I can feel it. These things are getting easier to find and old ones harder (in similar condition). Keep that bitch, do it!

that's actually a severed foot, not his. good for cool retro-caveman-style gas pedal.
