  1. 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?

    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.
  4. 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.

    " 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?

    Very cool. Does this mean I have to grow up when the site goes away?

    I do but I'm saving them for when I get coilovers.

    x3 oyaji wagon

    I grabbed the oil pan for my 7m. Pulled the front subframe to get it out. Engine fell on front swaybar.

    x3 oyaji wagon

    I brought two friends to help pull everything I wanted. One said no one's going to come get stuff from a Cressida and I told him that there is a Cressida guy not too far a way. Ha. Also I grabbed the lower radiator shroud piece for a guy in FL. I only grabbed the spindle and hub to have as a spare for the one day I actually have money to buy coilovers.

    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    Was curious on how much of the door was done and how. Sometimes the outer skin is frp but not the whole door. Very cool.

    x3 oyaji wagon

    If you talking about this one in Lafayette, the clamshell is busted. I got there in March and took the spindles, knuckles, oil pan, diff, and a few other things that I sold to some people in the FB cressida groups.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    For me, finding a ma70 rear differential assembly to put into my x8 is not going well. My question is can the is300 carrier assembly, not the differential itself, fit into an x8 subframe with the same mods a ma70 one would? The plan is to drift the car and from what I have read, the stock x8 single forward mount is not the best for that kind of driving. It tends to break. If anyone has other recommendations besides the ma70 or even the is300, I would greatly appreciate them. Thank you.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    I think there are a few places near me with the equipment needed. Sent you a pm. Thanks again.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    The only way I have is with a cutting wheel on a grinder. If the patterns aren't big I should be able to do it.

    IS300 Carrier assembly in x8?

    Thank you Gordo, I was hoping you would respond. I knew about the rear mount issues from yours and others threads. I thought I had read of issues in the front. My fault. Thank you again for clarifying.

    Wizard People, Dear Reader

    I ran on 5 cylinders, at a drift event, in my pos 5m/7m x7. It was like drifting a 4ac corolla. Oh wait I did that too. Fuck!

    1JZ-FSE Questions

    I don’t know much about this engine or if it's possible to swap it into a cressida. I know it's a direct injection system and it looks like they all came matted with an automatic. From what I've gathered on other direct injection systems like Ecoboost from Ford and Ecotec from GM, there isn't an easy way to swap the engine over to other vehicles. I believe it has to do with transmission sensors and throttle pedal sensors since they don't use a throttle cable. I'm not sure about the 1jzfse, but from pictures of them, it seems they don't have a throttle cable either. Google results have shown discussion on the jzx100.com site but it seems to be down. Does anyone know of any other information about them? Could they be swapped with their stock ecu into a cressida with a w58 or r154 transmission? What else would be required to swap it other than engine, harness and ecu?

    Sorry for not stating it but I'm not looking for power, I'm looking for fuel economy.
