I dont post much on this forum, but Ive been around for awhile. Mainly just lurked and learned.

Unfortunately Im pretty much on the verge of bankruptcy so Ive come to the conclusion I cant finish the 1j swap in the x8. Ive spent a rediculous amount of money on the thing over the last year and I know its retarded to not finish it as its 90% done, but the only reason its even that far is because I was stupid and spent money on it rather than paying bills off. Now I NEED (read: lawyers are contacting me...even if its a scare tactic Im sick of it) and this car is the only thing left that I own where I can kinda get my head above water if I sell some things off.

Sorry for the back story I just have seen many people just give up on the car and I dont want to be seen as one of those people...I just realized I need to grow up.

Now to the point of this post. I have a 92 x8 with a x90 1jz and r154 swapped in and ready to go (just needs to be wired). I spend stupid amounts of money at drift motion buying all the things you should buy when doing the swap like seals, pullys, belts, mounts, ect. Other than the fact the engine is used everything else is new.

I also have stuff like mkiii rear diff and all the other little bull shit things you need like piping, intercooler (off a 2010 deisel merc suv) ect.

Im at work now so I dont have pictures and stuff till I get home, but Im willing to ship anything as long as Im not gonna loose money on it. I dont remember everyting I bough toff the top of my head, but if its something related to a 1j swap or putting in a r154 I likely have it so ask.

If I were to sell the engine and trans as a whole Id like 2500ish. Considering how much it costs to buy a 1j with r154 from an importer Id say thats a fair deal considering all the maintanence has already been done. We all know a general idea how much this stuff is worth and honestly I dont plan on making even 50% of the money I spent on it back so just give me offers on stuff. I just need to make some money quickly and I have nothing left I can pawn. I realize saying all of this doesnt exactly put me in the best position for lowballers, but this place isnt like most so hopefully it doesnt get outta hand.

Ill make this more organized when I get home and after I get a few beers in me.

what do you all have for sale besides the engine? Are you selling the chassis? Any goodies? Coilovers, gauges, seats, wheels, body kit.?

If you have a better steering wheel than the stock one, I'll buy that off of you~

And sorry to hear man, I believe we've all been there.

Lofty - Pics comin tomorrow...Just snapped some quick ones while Im at my parents for easter dinner but cant upload till I get home. I appreciate the kind words as well. Id like to think that when I get life back in order I can hopefully grab a legit jzx90 or something like that...being in Canada and all it makes the most sense to me haha

Thug - Nothing aftermarket really. Pretty much anything in the car is swap related. I didnt get a chance to sort through anything today cuz its fuckin mess in there but I doubt youd be interested in most things I have in there as most is just stock type shit. The chassis will also be sold or scrapped though. I want a house more than I need a project car and thats never gonna happen if I dont deal with this shit.

Codine - I only have a sun raped stock wheel sorry man. Ill be back. Life can only fuck you around for so long right?
