    You would have to contact them. I know belts can be, but never checked into helmets.

    my simpson is a M1995 unit, my new one is a M2010. do those old ones get recerted? i really like my old one better than the new one. new one is a bit stiff in the cheek. both my helmets use the same visors with different hardware, interesting how they chanegd and didnt change. i think in 2015 they started a new design and phased out all the old stuff. i dont really like the new stuff with their weird ribbing on the top.

    Well, redoing my 044 pump set up again. Ordered in one of the Holley HydraMats. Went with a 15" by 8" cross units. Since they come with good old 'merican pipe threads, couldn't directly attach to the bottom of the pump, so more fittings, and now hoses. Cutting the old pressure out line off, and going with a -6 bulk head fitting. Not all of the fittings are here yet, but I will post more pictures when they do show up. On another note, any circuit type events now require a Hans device. Fuck they are expensive... Sad Found an old used on eBay for $150, so grabbed it... Happy Then Rue ruined my day by asking what the certification date was... Sad Asked the seller, he said it didn't have one, so I asked to cancel the sale... really Sad Next day I called Hans/Simpson, how just happen to be just 15 miles from me, to ask if they could recertify an old Hans. They said no problem, just $25 plus cost of new straps... Happy again! Took it to them yesterday, walked in, saying I had a Hans that needed recertification. Gal said no, that wasn't even their product... Sad, and a little pissed. We argued for about 5 minutes about how there was a picture of this unit on the Pegasus web site on the history of Hans. I'm getting more sad, and more pissed. She gave in, took the unit to the offices, and came back without it. I'm already thinking of how to word the description for an eBay listing, so I can recoup some of my $$. 15 minutes later, Tina from the offices comes back with my $150 special, and explains to me why it can't be recertified. I'm thinking more about dumping it on eBay as a relic, or collectable, or vintage Hans unit (and how cute Tina is). The reason is that it's a first production unit, and there were no certifications on them back then. So I say something to the effect of it being a wall decoration, and she says..... "Would you like to trade for a new one?" About the only thing that could have been better is if she asked me if I wanted to go get naked in a motel room ! But a trade for a new one would do just fine, thank you very much ! Turns out they wanted it for display, and they had only seen one other of the first production units. I drove home happy, and with a hard-on....... Any one have a really old Simpson helmet, so I can go talk to Tina again ?

    ^^ I'm not very familiar with haltech, but I know looking at the 10+ different link models. if you want that can do knock control, plus DBW, plus 02 driver, (standard infinity features) I think lowest model is extreme, which I think is more than infinity. Maybe I'm crazy but knock control is a huge selling point for me but nobody else seems to care? But as I've said a dozen times your best bet is to ask the tooner you trust what platform they prefer as most modern ecus can all do the same stuff. Used to hate verossas but man they are growing on me

    WhoreMouth_Jr- i will do that at some point. im generally driving with my work boots on so i dont really notice. i updated the post with more stuff as it didn't post the 1st time. when the weather isnt great i drive my 1989 x8 imported from Canada. http:// its got 380,000 Km on a factory head gasket. digi dash,lsd and manual seat belts. its 100% stock. i have just done upkeep on it to keep it on the road in decent shape.

    link and haltech both do that and the haltech is oz and link is kiwi, both great computers and have huge support locally. i think it looks great and period correct to the nineth. that cusco livery, ooough, very nice, thought it was a subby cause thats what i associate that livery with lol

    Should pick up covers for those pedals. Get an extra one and trim your brake pedal to also accept one. It's a game changer. But I'm also probably the only idiot driving barefoot

    Go with AEM Infinity, unless you think the drive by wire stupid, and idle control is stupid, and you're stupid.

    Hmm the whole next half didn't post lol I'll have to update it later Gordo, the OEM carb I sold with the 4m to the crown guy. Then another guy bought the Weber Battleaxe, I had that filter on the self so used it. I'm aware of the shityness of it. But she did make 475hp at 18psi with it on there.

    I should've anticipated someone would mention the persistent use of ancient tech. The F-Con was put in the car in the late 00s by a Japanese tuner based in NZ. He ofc had a hardon for HKS shit resulting in F-Con spam across customer cars. It would be better with the Valcon module, but I agree that playing stupid games and trying to 'collect em all' just to make it competitive with the shittiest modern standalone is smooth-brain shit. Yes, the F-Con is rubbish features wise and I need it gone. I looked at Link Kurofune as a quick and easy remedy to the F-Con as its straight plug into the loom, however it doesn't offer VVT-i mapping from what I've found. Solution is replacement modern standalone (as you said). It will happen at one point, but a running (legal) car feels like a rarity in my life and for now, I'm just riding the good times. Lmao I'm not even a zoomer, plus its not a gaudy enough colour with tilty 19s jammed up in the guards to be peak zoomermobile.

    Why not ditch the jdm non sense and get a link or haltech and make some good reliable power to complement the style of the car. Big zoomer

    Got to ask, what ever become of that carb that was on the M ?
  28. figured i would start a build thread. most of the work has already been done so ill post some pics along the way.bought this 1979 cressida around 6 years ago bone stock. ran like dick and had this strange gunk all over the car. but was overall in pretty good shape for its age. 1st thing i did was convert to a weber 32/36 carb. the carb: https://postimg.cc/qtmT7hpv http:// then i started to get this gunk off. the original owner said he washed it with a concert cleaner of some sort. took a gallon of goof off remover and countless rags to wipe it off. then had serveral cutting and buffing layers done. http:// http:// http:// http://<a href="https://postimg.cc/dZ2NLpGj" target="_blank"><img src="https://i.postimg.cc/Rh8kbzFy/20140324-222210-resized.jpg" alt="20140324-222210-resized"/></a> you can see where i had wiped off that shit. eventually it was kinda shiny. http:// drove that for 6 months then a rod bearing said see u later http:// bought another 4m and made a "good" out of the 2 that i had with a good head and good block http://http:// never put that one in.(probably would have failed anyway cuz i had no clue what i was doing) sold it to a guy with a 67 crown looking to upgrade from his 2m. i bought a few 2jzge's over the years but never put them in. i moved several times then finally had a good garage again. i then bought a vvti 2jzgte. added a s257xe borg, fuse fab manifold and a no name intake manifold. http:// http:// basically swapped out all my suspension for T3 stuff along the way too. http:// http:// http:// http:// wanted to keep auto but ended up converting to a r154 using a OS Giken Super Single with movement alteration kit. http:// had a 1 piece drive shaft made http:// http:// used a mx83 clutch pedal and master. bolted right up. only had to make a top mount for the 3rd bolt location. http:// http:// http:// put the battary in the back with disconnect and a fused relay for the fuel pump near fuel pump, http:// used a PANIC wire harness with the link g4+ monsoon ecu http:// wired up some gauges for the dash http:// took the car to fuse fabrication for custom radiator,inter cooler,pipes,fuel cell,basically all the metal stuff. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// i did practice on a 1987 x7 cressida that i traded my 82 corona wagon for. bought a gs300 2jzge/auto from a buddy that already had a panic harness made for a 87 x7. swapped that in and finished the other bits that needed to me done. drove that for over a year then sold to another buddy to buy yet another Cressida. sold it for 3500 and used that plus more cash to buy a 78 x3 from a buddy. was already na-t 2jzge swapped and 400whp. i put a interior out of a x6 i had (got smashed by a dude driving on the shoulder). done small things to it. was a good stepping stone to driving higher hp cars. Before i even started the 79 x3 i bought a 1990 corolla to learn 5 speed on. i had never owned or driven anything besides autos. i did have some experience on a bike but very limited. after being confident enough driving that i felt like i could drive the 78 x3 so i bought it. driving the 78 x3 really got me motivated to finish my 79 x3. http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// took the car to PSI in Portland for a tune after i got my wheels on. http:// http:// http:// right now shes at 475whp 400ish tq at 18psi. currant projects are a for 8.8 rear end swap with better breaks http:// http:// over the winter i did get all the front end stuff replaced : vvti gear,solenoid, filter and all needed gaskets o rings, front main seal,cam seals, new water pump, new tensionor and pulleys. tried to replace the crank pulley with a fluidamper one but my lower cover has swollen and is rubbing. so ill put that one after i replace the lower cover. http://
