Bros Garage Shit.

What I already have
- Almost every suspension part XM makes and their Motor/Tranny Mounts
- S9 Kit
- DM Roof Spoiler
- BC Coilovers
- 326 Power Wing
- NRG Hub/QR with Grip Royal Wheel
- 5 speed shit
- ASD Hydro E-Brake
- Wheels (Not a clue... I keep coming up with wheels and then find that another car has run them so I am taking my time with this)
- Our color scheme right now is a black car with a purple engine bay and purple cage but that isn't set in stone.
- I sold my VVTI motor, and I need to sell my 1UZ if anyone needs one! hah, but I am going with a normal GTE motor, that will be the last thing I buy
- And some other shit.
Here are some pictures:
Pulled the car out of a field where it sat for 3 years
Washed her up a bit, and spent a good hour cleaning rat shit out of it... not very fun
In the shop and disassembly started.
Cleaned the gunk shit out of the engine bay and started sanding down. Don't have a complete picture but it is completely prepped right now.
End of that first day.
Did some shit with interior
Roof Wing and 60mm Greddy Bar
HKS Sequential BOV
5 speed shit
All my parts from XM
Got these, and then sold them because I want a different set.
Not really much else to report, its just sitting there until I can decide on wheels really, and then it is going to Exotics for the paint and the cage, I guess that will be the next big update.
In the meantime!
I got tired of driving around a pos so I bought a 1980 Toyota Corona - 1 owner - 95,000 original miles. It is almost a show room quality car and I am probably going to ruin it lol. I am just going to get a cheap set of wheels, *the ones I'm looking at now are 15x9 -10* have custom springs made to lower the car, and make an exhaust for it. So yea, I'll update this thread with both.

if you're just building to get it drifting and compete for fun, experience, whatever... who gives a fuck what wheels you used or whether someone else has run them? get some craigslist shits or replicas and go wild. if you're using stock calipers all around, you can fit Starion or Crown Vic wheels w junkyard tires or take-offs and burn 'em up, less than $200 for 4 wheels and tires. When you're experienced handling the car, get some baller shit that nobody else has if you want to look nice for the blog photos. i did the unnecessarily expensive and rare wheel thing on my car, made them fit by rolling the fenders and shaving the calipers and now I am dailying $1,300 liabilities. There are replicas of the wheels I run available in awesome sizes for like $500 a set that I want to switch to for dailying so I wont lose my shit over curbing them coming home from the bar or losing them when some jackass cuts me off or merges into me.
whats up with that Corona? solid axle and leaf rear suspension? too lazy to look it up... do yourself a fav: if you plan on going any lower than 2", talk to a suspension place about doing something with your leafs instead of blocks. less headache down the road and it only costs ~$50 more than blocks and custom u-bolts (if you need them).

The Cressida is just going to be different, I'm going to use it to cruise, drift, take to meets, and try to get in a magazine. My thoughts on fake wheels are:
Cheap car = cheap wheels
Sure I'll throw some knock offs on the Corona, but I'm putting all of this time and money into the Cressida why would I want to run fake wheels? My drift setup will be using knock offs, but those aren't going to be the wheels the car is known with. idk, might seem stupid to people but I don't want to run fake wheels on the car UNLESS I am at a track day, plus it isn't my daily.

If you're trying to get into a mag with this thing, do it fast. they're becoming more bandwagon/mainstream every day. Used to be people would feature them just because it was different and new to see an x8 build at shows. Now you have to do it more over the top to set yourself apart from the crowd. also, print media is dying off fast and blogs are either too easy to be featured in or they suck megadick; being associated with Speedhunters etc... is actually something to avoid for most.

That is a 'Super'.
Preceeded the sequential (which was a pos), and the now famous 'Super Sequential'.
Both the connections on the super need to be teed together.
HKS & Field, both made electronic controllers for the Super, so that you could control the opening pressure, and open time from your dash.
Was like an electric boost control, with a solenoid valve that tied into one of the two connections on the Super.
I have one of the Field units, cool stuff/

Update for the Corona. I got my steering wheel in and ordered my wheels/tires/coils/panhard bar
Also, I completely forgot to take a picture of the 326 wing, but I test fitted it early today and it unreal how perfect it fits. With a roof wing and kit it will be killer. I'll get your shot once I mount the rear bumper.

if you arent going to pretend to follow it.

Here you go Roy, if you are like me then you know its going to look sick with a kit and roof wing, but it def needs the kit, stock body is a no go with this wing. BTW, it fits perfectly.

A friend of mine has one painted the same color as my car, when I get the aero done I'll decide. I hope it works
