    [HIZOKU] PIG EYE Streeter

    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.

    My various Mark IIs

    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.
  7. LOVE ALL OF THIS Are you importing for fun or did you make a biz out of it?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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...

    I have an IRS F series rear end. you have the older GA6/X7 and the IS300 TRD diffs available but they are discontinued. So getting one is hard I should add mine came with a 4.3 gear ratio and that should make it a little more fun with the NA.

    So been a little lazy due to the cold weather.Still have the target of having it driveable by December. Pref the Japanese car show in early December, but if I miss that, the PF XMAS party.Updates are,all sensors have been purchasedThe airbox has been purchased, i still need to work out a way so the linkages don't hit the boxpurchased TRD 2 Way LSD.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.purchased rubber for fuel tank straps,Created Google retro speaker https://www.facebook.com/CISCOKIDSAU...77943153884800 still needs some fine tuning, waiting on parts.next steps,once all metal is back, i will drop it all off at the powder coaters to get blasted/painted and start fitting it all.Problems,i think the change to Motec M130 might have been an issue as i might run out of inputs with the DBW ETC, but I will wire up all the essential things first, and whatever is left, i will decide on a case by case bases.
  19. Starting to smell like sauerkraut around here...

    Love the CRT. I've got 4 CRT TVs and one computer monitor now that I use as a second display. Nothing like playing old consoles on them.
  21. Sold this turd almost two years ago after almost crashing it. Been building a 2007 M35 for a while, recently got it running. It should be running like OEM if I can get some sort of canbus system to communicate with the AEM Infinity. Full interior, AC, Adaptive headlights, and AC cooled seats. The goal is about 400whp, nothing crazy just a good challenge to build. I had a 2020 Civic Si Sedan I had sold for almost what I paid for it thanks to this crazy car market and got this sweet ass E55. It makes tons of power, 4 doors, sunroof, and big ass brakes!

    My Couch Pulls Out, I Don't: The Resurrection

    I prefer my tractors green, not orange, but they'll do. The other one is on the floor. Just did a quick mockup with my cheap rails, which makes my head hit the ceiling with a helmet. Time for some custom fabbed low mount brackets... YJP actually had a few pop up, which is surprising.

    it'd probably shrink or peel off with the heat. I'll end up getting them hydro dipped or painted and getting the weld valley cover
