    Curse of the Cressida

    Put the full Wats on the Supra again as the temps are usually above 10C. Checked fluids, air pressures and the like, good to go for now. Cleaned the Altezza cluster and measured it and put it there for mock up for when i swap. Would be nice to get this fully functional, but im also retarded. Got the pig tails on the back so it can be connected.

    Rear Upper Control Arm ball joint cheap fix

    I say this in the least homosexual way possible, but I love you for this! Literally a lifesaver as I was about to spend fuck-all money on arms
  5. Yeah I didn't trust myself enough to fuck with the joints themselves with handheld tools, so I just used a small diameter friction disk flat against the surface of the arm
  6. Real content ! Thanks Urrik, there is hope for this place yet ! Personally, I would have just stuck it in my lathe, and turned the snap ring grove up a little, but few have that option available.
  7. Confirmed the 2005-2015 Tacoma front upper ball joint fits. I picked up both joints and the 4Runner body diameter and taper is incorrect. The Tacoma joint has the right taper as well as the correct 43.8mm diameter to allow a press fit into the X8 arms. The height of the snap ring groove is slightly less on the Tacoma joint, so I needed to cut the surface on the Cressida arm down in order for the snap ring to seat:

    I hope he fixes that awful flare/door.
  9. I have a few questions. But I believe they would mostly pertain to is300 related things.

    1jz vvti swap

    Because he just graduated from skate boards, and thinks he knows how to turn wrenches. This type of person is why the 7M got a bad reputation.... Well, that, and it was an out dated design, trying to make way too much power.

    Torsen diffs

    got lucky this weekend at the local junkyard. Wrecked FR-S. 40% off day so I figured what the hell and pulled the diff, ended up paying $58 for it. Not too shabby. Figure I could weld the open diff I'm pulling out and slap it in the fr-s housing and sell it to a wannabe drifter ZN6 owner and actually make some money lol...

    Why would you take on work when you have to ask how to do it?

    3” cat-back REINHARD exhaust

    3", from Japan ? Is this an eyeball measurement of some sort, or did Japan suddenly switch to the English system over night ? Maybe you bought it from streeter's Yahoo-JP auction listings, in which case it's CDM (Chinese domestic market). I have a JDM stainless exhaust, and it measures 80mm.....Not 3".
  15. Straight from japan! Fits perfectly in jzx81 markii type. Dont know what else it could fit in but im sure yall could find some use in it somehow! Only test fitted but never used! I swear! Pm me! $300

    "What mounts and driveshaft do i need to make it work?ο»Ώ " Oh, I'd say ones that fit... Summit Racing has them, but you have to call, as they are not catalogue items. But because of the popularity of the car, they had some made up. Talk to Jimmie, he handles all the import stuff.

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    Found a dude selling 4 Cerberus II's with 2 brand new 4" lips for dirt cheap. So naturally I bought them: I then posted on social media about them and a dude hits me up with: "hey i got 4 more with 4 brand new lips for even less". so naturally i said yes again, ahahahah: I bought em with the intentions of cheap well fitting drift spares. and they will work great for that purpose. I sold my old spares and pretty much almost paid for all 8 Cerbs. So a win-win scenario for me. I've also given my painter a cash deposit for all my PPG products for painting my car. So I should be painted and kitted soon.

    Gordo, it might be less quality then other item's on the market but it is also at the correct price point for it.

    1jz vvti swap

    Ive been doing research but cant find a definite answer. Im doing a swap for a friend on his 92 toyota cressida. He bought a motor and auto trans off a 2001 mark 2. 1jzgte vvti. What mounts and driveshaft do i need to make it work? He wants to keep it automatic. I cant find much on keeping the auto trans with this year motor.

    1989 Cressida

    I was halfheartedly trying to sell the car originally.. but now i can really get rid of it, price updated. I got a '07 G35 for insanely cheap, will 2j the shit when the VQ shows any needs greater than an oil change.

    Curse of the Cressida

    haha I thought I was crazy with 1.5 drift cars and a daily. But I can't image working up the will to work on any of them haha. Radius on the truck actually looks pretty cool!

    Curse of the Cressida

    Dear Diary, Cressida has 4 gauge power wire. going to upgrade that. battery might have a very slow drain on it even with the kill switch. sits at 12.3 or so, and with car on, its 14.2 or whatever. the 4 gauge wire is like 40mm thick and the supras is 50mm thick and runs half the electronics lol. both cars have the same dual 12inch fans go on start up maybe thats what pushes the thinner wire over the edge after the car is warm and the wire gets hotter? i started it and then turned it off and started back up again. only did it the once though, seems same ol same ol but i still dont trust it to not leave me stranded. tried some 15s on for shits and giggles as i got a tire machine back in the fall i think been driving the d21 to work this past week to test out the clean and rebuilt fuel injectors, now no longer leaking fuel over everything. i radius'd the front arches as well as one was rotten and cleared and the other was decent and caught the tire, so i wanted to see what it looked like...better. still needs radius'd pathfinder/4x4 fenders though and i have some beat up pathfinder fenders to mod for the rear to flare the rear out. s13...i keep looking at the wires and slowly started to tidy them up. got some motivation to work on that after our first practise this past saturday...more interested in making the s13 mobile so i can toss the cressida in the shed and fix the rear end and make it feel nice and firm and reliable so i can start to drive it on a regular basis to and from work or something. then it will be a toss up of putting the s13 back in the shed to swap rear ends or to start on the supra. supra runs and drives and drifts fine as is, but the 2j will be a lot better and ill be adding PS back to the car and should make the car perfect...does require 2-3k thereabouts to finish mind you and will once again be slow with wiring in the link ecu. should have been a smart man and have one drift car or something also got a wrecked crv for parts and swapped the entire exterior and interior as the outside had all kinds of old damage and is a early model and the late model had a bunch of painted parts so updated that, and the interior was old and the driver seat was shitty so the new car had half the kms on it (ours is at 380k kms?) and was dark grey and has tinted windows, so its been nice. had to modify the back seat belt buckles today as they change the receivers and the belts in the later model which was odd, so i trimmed the buckle to allow the old style to go deeper and then made the d shape on the belt more into a square so now they lock. the early and late model have different rear seat bases and allow the rear seats to flip up and forward for some reason and thats where the belts go on the early model. late model has the belts on the seats ... its needlessly complicated and doesnt make much sense unless you look at it so really who cares. lastly, civic wasnt a bad snow car after i put a crv spare wheel in the boot so i had some rear weight. a ligth car in the snow doesnt make a great one but did the job of getting me to and from work and over an un plowed highway
  25. I just wired up a beams in an 86, let me know if you got any questions.
  26. Hope the new owner drifted the shit out of it, hit the wall, and a dozen rat 240s with it, then scrapped it, putting it out of it's misery.... By the way, if you can handle it, there are lexus forums on the net.
  27. Well sold the Cressida two years ago. Some random kid from Ohio fly down and bought it. Shipped it back. Never seen or heard from it again. Recently picked up this IS300 after flipping around some cars. (Another Cressida kouki non abs non sunroof car. It’s going to one of homies in Chicago for a reshell and a SR86 That was a trashcan) its a beams swapped car, kinda dumb but also super into it. Sold the big dumb shiny wheels. Put my maxxis and Nardi in it. Doing research and gonna finish up the wiring to start driving this thing.
