    Oh, and I got may account locked on AR15.com due to not being woke enough, and posting without giving a shit about wokeness. Wish someone would revive my home, JZXP, and maybe add a firearms section...

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Newest build (Boom-Boom Stick) AR in .45 acp. Not a weak-ass blow-back action. Not even a direct impingement action. But a Piston Driven action. Had a 45 DI, piss poor POS upper made by a shit-kicker calling himself 'Macon Armory'. Yes, it worked, but because the only way he could get it to work was by putting the gas port right past the case mouth, which led to much gas in shooter's face when firing, and extreme fouling of the action. All the idiots on AR15.com raved over his .45 uppers because they couldn't build one themselves, hell they cant put a normal AR together without fucking it up. I had asked the idiot at Macon Armory (Rudy) before purchasing that piece of shit, if he had ever tried doing a piston system, he said yes, but could never get it to work. Then, after getting fed up with all the other issues with his POS upper I decided to tear the shit upper down, and have a go at a piston build. Contacted Adams Arms, manufacture of one of the 2 leading piston kits for ARs, and asked him if he had any insight on piston driving a pistol caliber carbine. He said it wouldn't work due to the low chamber pressure of a .45 acp round. That round only develops around 20,000 psi, where as a 5.56 is up around 60,000. That made perfect sense, but far from a limiting factor. Adams Arms piston kit: Being an engine guy, and well versed on all things fluid power (hydraulic & pneumatic), the path forward was clear... Want more power out of a NA engine, make it larger. Want a, let's say, a lift have more power, but have limited pressure available, use a larger cylinder. So picked up an Adam's kit, and made a larger piston & cylinder for it. Their kits use a .312" dia piston, so first try was 1/2" diameter. Almost, but not quite. It would try to cycle, but would not pull the spent case all the way out of the chamber. Tried going to the lightest buffer I could do, and a lighter buffer spring, and the case would clear the chamber, but not the locking lugs on the barrel. So back to the drawing board... Original Adams .312" piston & cylinder. .500 piston & cylinder Checked how much clearance there was from the piston, to the barrel, and had enough room to go to a .625" set up. I chose titanium for the cylinder & op rod on both these, to keep from adding weight to the parts that cycle. Let me say, machining titanium is not easy, especially tapping threads on older equipment without high pressure coolant system, or very controlled feeds & feeds that a CNC machine offers. .625" piston set up. Original & pistol caliber End result? It runs like a top! It runs clean, since no combustion gasses are released in side the action. The lower I used on this build was made for running M3 Grease Gun mags, so they are easy to come by, easy to load, and function perfectly. Unlike the POS Macon Armory propitiatory mags, that are only available from Rudy the jack-ass, and nearly impossible to load. Dip-shit's magazines only held 20 rounds, the grease gun mags hold 30, even though they are only 1/2" longer. Now, latest on my X8... Rue, made some custom stainless steel seat rails, so I don't have to use sliders (which are for sale). After I drill the holes, each pair of rails will be connected (welded) with a SS U-channel.

    No massive updates, but the guards are complete, and I purchased an old-school trust harness and shoulder pad set to complete the period correct catalogue

    Updates are, All sensors have been purchased. The airbox has been purchased and modified. But now this happened. and I can't fit it. So the solution is going to be to move the tube elsewhere. It sucks as this box will only be on it for engineering/EPA tests here in Victoria, and then I will remove it. I purchased a TRD 2 Way LSD with a 4.3 Rear that I need to fit. all prototype metal is being re-cut out of 3mm as I found the 1mm was not that great and re-designed the heater tap mount how I fucked it when designing, but now its spot on, so I need to get it cut/bent purchased rubber for fuel tank straps. I created a Google retro speaker https://www.facebook.com/CISCOKIDSAU...77943153884800; these work rather well. Both speakers are combined in stereo, and only one action google assistant. Guards are getting repaired and vented to look like this AN fittings for whole charcoal canister setup I need to drill some holes in the tube, but modding the catch cans to work somewhat is complete. Sample of drilling. Won't go as high on the ones im using and, of course, will file/clean up.

    Updates, Doubt the car will be done by December Where it is stored is flooded, and that's no issue for the car but getting it out is. The farm is a mud pit, so i can't take it anywhere until it drys out. sad but it's allowed me to start getting parts together to hit it with one big working bee on it. So I don't get how EFIHardware sells its products and has a good reputation. So as people are aware the ITB kit I purchased has been a bit of an issue to fit a 2JZ, anyway purchased their airbox that is meant to fit with their ITB kits, however, linkages would hit the box no matter what way I set up the linkages. anyway ended up in cutting notches in the airbox and from this designing covers for them that I'm, currently printing. The prototype cuts have been fine other than the heater tap mount, for some reason it's always off when I cut it, I might be jinxed. in regards to the motec M130, it turned out to be fine having a couple of inputs free and a single output. I have also sent off the guards to get vented etc to look like the below. So Custom work left is the rear spoiler I need to design, the tail shaft. fluid lines, loom and try and get this heater tap to mount correct. I need to decide what to do with gauges, and clusters., do I get the stock one working, or do I mod the stock one and add an elite micro-gauge or some other small canbus gauge? or do I go silly and buy a motec C1212? I think the elite micro will be the go, but still think a motec would be nice. then everything else seems to be off-the-shelf items, like buy clutch, headlights, battery, clutch slave, master etc and some tires. The rare part I'm on the lookout for is Trust 4-point harness with buckle x2, don't care if they are out of date, it's simply for show and to finish off the trust/greddy catalogue. so there we go. sorry, it's not a crazy update and lots of pictures or a start vid/skid vid. but hopefully, I can get a lot of it done early in the next year.

    Sort of a business. The JZX100 coming in I will have for a few weeks before I put it on the market. A friend and I have been making YouTube videos on various cars such as these. I want to import a jzx100 tourer V by the end kf the year.
  16. LOVE ALL OF THIS Are you importing for fun or did you make a biz out of it?
  17. Just made a post about how I picked up a jzx81 roller. It's missing a few crucial things for it to be a car that can be comfortably driven on the road such as a 4 door trims and weatherstripping. Just want to see if anyone has any available before I go searching YJP. I need the seals for the door, the ones the glass presses up against when the door is shut and the one behind that on the cabin frame.
  18. Haven't really contributed in a long time but figured I'd basically throw my dick on the table to show you what I've been up to. Had my Mx83 since 2008, before that was my Mx73, god rest her soul. Drove the x83 stock with w58 from the x7 till it broke. Slightly revived it to just get rod knock drifting it in my friends yard. Recently I've started importing cars. Bought a nice GX100 Mark II, it was cheap and got great mpg. Sold it and now have a Honda Stepwgn (oh no stepbro I'm stuck) on the way. In the meantime a 94 Mark II van I ordered for a friend came in. A YX78V. It's pretty cool. It's also 5spd. In two weeks a JZX100 Mark II will come it. It will be my first ever jzx car with an actual JZ in it. I say that because I just picked up this 90 Mark II JZX81 roller for less money than MX83s are going for. Trying to decide what to do with it. Was about to build my x83 into a drift car, now I'm thinking of doing that with this. Or just keep the x81 as a parts car and order one from japan. Thoughts?

    " The poor man's JZX100 front end conversion" Just go buy a jzx100 for less. Poor Car

    JZX81 Engine to Body Harness & Gauge Cluster Connector Pinout

    Is the B3 the only connector that is different between a mx83 and jzx81?

    Want an X8, with a sick 2JZ, partially finished, missing parts, questionable workmanship? And it's only $27,000!! Another unfinished X8 on eBay.
  22. Good luck, I've got a complete car that I couldn't get 300 for. So it's just rotting away in the blazing sun.
  23. You just don't see them for sale anymore at all. They're basically gone. I'm going to sell my old shell soon and I can probably get $1500 for it at least.
  24. An '89 X8 on eBay: 89 X8 in San Antonio Here in San Antonio. Not mine. Looks unmolested. Way too much money, someone found a deal, and flipping it, trying to make a huge profit...
