    Bottomless money pit X100

    Meh i need to for the sake of selling it. But I'm just over it. But I'll probably buy a gx71 eventually. I was always a dirty AE86 person anyway. Got back to my roots and went full autismo on them the past few years.

    @Nigel_Vertigo for the old trans, I originally just bashed the roof of the tunnel up until the neck of the shifter housing cleared. And opened up the back of the auto trans hole a little bit because Driftmotion made the shifter longer than I had told them to. The tripod needed a bit more than that though. Mocking up a stock location Garrett GTX2971R using a turbine housing made by some Taiwan company

    Was probably me on X3 group. pretty much any motorbike one is good. the R1 came in two styles one like the ducati and one like this. the below link is my fav due to size/style. very simple https://www.ebay.com/itm/1998-2001-Yamaha-R1-Fuel-Smog-Evap-Charcoal-Emissions-Canister-OEM-/372752335737

    Someone once told me to look for Yamaha R1 or something like that, But they just had used something similar on a Honda. But this looks like a good option too. Guess I'll have to start looking and just pull the trigger on one on ebay or something. Then mock it up and and see how I can make it fit.

    I will be running an S13 fuel tank. been advised it fits with the lengthening of one strap. but i have been advised a lot of things fit. i have not looked into much of the stuff i may or may not need for engineering was just going to build it how i want then add what i need for our EPA. witch should be catalytic convertor, muffler etc to keep it under 90db, password on ECU. Exhaust 5mm away from the steering column. and nothing much more as i have not gone nuts cutting up chassis etc. if i was going to go and put a evap canister in i would prob use a motorbike one like the ducati one due to the size etc. i could tuck it in a nice spot and have it look semi neat.

    Beautiful. Are you running an OEM gastank or a fuel cell? Currently I've got OEM in my wagon of course(I like being able to have the spare tire tucked up in side of it), but I'm trying to figure out what to run for a charcoal canister aka evap canister. Not for emissions reasons because I don't have that where I live, but for fuel reasons. I lose fuel to evaporation and my tank burps fuel if I'm not super careful. Or takes a while to replace all the air inside while I let it equalize. Just wondered if you were gonna run something up front or going with a whole different fuel cell setup as I'm trying to figure out what to use.

    well, i got ITB all working well. took a bit of work a couple of extra parts etc but its setup and does not fowl anything like it did before. DBW just needs to be mounted and chuck on a couple more sensors and shes good to go ITB < Link to video, unsure if it will work due to being off Facebook.

    Curse of the Cressida

    Nothing too exciting, just all basic things most ppl do off camera. took the plugs out and cleaned them all, gapped them the same and put them back in, same with the coil on plug, cleaned and put back. Popped the cover on and found the plug wire guides so i could the plug wires tidy. Took about a week to find the m10 x 1.00mm tap so i could drill and tap my returnless fuel rail into a return style. I buy scrap pieces of off cuts when i go to metal places as you never know when you may use them, welp, used some and cut to size for the lower power steering bracket as this is where the AC compressor usually sits. Also modified the throttle wheel by just taking out the slot for the through stud and clocked it different due to the semi electric throttle these things have (very common issue if you want a fully mechanical throttle. I'm aware this may slip due to the slot being removed, but at this time i have red loctite and a uggadugga on the nut itself. I have a random throttle bracket i can cut the slotted bit from and weld to the OE one if it does fail. Its easy to get to and this took me looking at it for a lil bit to figure it out. I know driftmotion makes that piece but $20US turns into $60cdn real quick with duty, exchange, taxes, customs, shipping. I figure me looking at it for 20min and understanding whats going on is more beneficial. Now i need to get a serpentine belt, cap or modify all the water inlet outlets that are open (water cooled throttle) and the vacuum ports now not needed. Thats pretty much it then it can go in. I have some cusco s13 engine mounts i want to use so i have some ideas for how to make that work as the a6 shares a very similar design to the s13 for the subframe. went for a drive today with some friends, a friend took pics of the truck. going to run out of insurance soon so i will be going back to the civic for a bit until the weather gets better, then insure the supra before the swap so i can drive it around and test the fuel pump relay update.

    Curse of the Cressida

    thanks man. my garage started out as no sheet, an extension cord ran through the attic and some rickety stairs and table when i bought the house. my dad helped me to wire all the plugs in, insulate and toss boards up, paint it white then started to put shelves in. i kept tripping on everything as i had no storage, so i went up. laying flake is easy, you just have to stir it in the pot and giver a wiggle every now and then. its easy on small parts cause you put it as a wide fan and do medium quick passes. i could imagine troubles shooting it on a car, but most guys who do are insanely good at it as they're high quality paint jobs...or your garden variety skid mark who gets hte craft store junk in a can and makes a mess. look into buying the vsxx new to compare it to what used sets go for..if you can find them

    Goddamn those covers came out awesome. I appreciate being able to lay out the metallic flake evenly, I've seen resprays with some blotchy ass shit Man I love VS-XX, makes me want some in silver for my car. Also reminds me of Tbones car which I miss seeing Also props for having an organized garage. I need some top shelving like that, my basement is getting too full of shit

    Car is stowed until after the state stops salting the earth, haven't really done anything to it other than this. The upper transmission tunnels on the manual cars are completely different from the autmatics, so the tripod trans doesn't fit without cutting: You might be able to still get this factory tunnel piece, and I've also seen aftermarket FRP covers around for sale But I made my own Also chopped off the back of the auto shifter assembly and added that to it so the center console still attaches like factory. Topped it off with new boots and Nardi mahogany shifting penis to match the wheel Also made this FC Commander dock out of an old phone cradle

    Yeah it could be possible our cars have driveline angles that are not ideal for a single piece shaft. Since they were intended to have a two piece shaft that lowers the operating angles of all the joints, I wonder if the max allowable offset between the trans and diff could be higher than a car meant to have a one piece It is possible to have a two piece driveshaft in a solid axle car. My buddies AE71 coupe has a two piece surprisingly, on a car that's about three feet long. I'm surprised the X7 wagon didn't do the same, but yeah I guarantee at high speeds it has slightly more vibration than an X7 sedan. Hell, even my ML430 daily has a slight DS vibration over 75 and the factory single piece is in perfectly fine shape, driven plenty of them that felt the same way too. They were also built in fucking Alabama, however... Agree, it's definitely possible that diameter vs length played a role in this, as well as the tubing straightness and runout. The shop gave me the option to use DOM tubing over the seam-welded shit, but I guess that didn't help me much lol

    SHIT! I never realized that I didn't come back to this. We had to detour three times for traffic. Drove half way up Louisiana to the nearest crossing over the Sabine river that wasn't blocked. I know people that sat on I-10 and moved like 30 miles in three hours. They took 12+ hours to get to houston that day. Mostly because we had to stop to feed a two month old baby like four times. And I think that probably added at minimum two hours to the trip. But it was wild.

    as the s13 moves and drives.."functions" I wanted to get going on the 2jz so I can get that job done. We will be doing a big house reno shortly and I wanted to buy the remaining pieces I need for the swap so that I can be done and I can get rid of all my M motor stuff and continue to clean the garage. pushed the s13 back and moved the motor out, reorganized the shop so i can start to run the harness and take out the auto box plugs and whatever else had no home. Got the clutch and flywheel from rock auto, cleaned up the back, put the pilot bearing in, flywheel worked with the auto flywheel bolts, oddly these are 36ftlbs..i went to 50ft lbs as the auto bolts to the flex plate show as 6xftlbs, so i split the difference. red loctite as per usual. checked the starter would engage, everything seems to line up so, fingers crossed. cleaned the spark plug galley and going to check all the plugs and gap them. At this time i wanted to paint the covers as they were raw aluminum for some reason. I kinda messed all this up as i was going for a oem+ look with all the stock piping and plastic bits...so ill likely source another front cover. I really wanted to do this and liked the results. i did mess up and forgot to do the lines, but oh well.

    I didn't mean it in an aggressive way. If I had an AR it's the kind of dumb shit I'd buy for it haha
