    WTB 1jzgte non vvti head

    I got a mk3 friend that is looking for a non vvti 1jzgte head. He got screwed on a deal and the head he has is missing all the cam caps.

    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.

    10 fucking years

    I am not very active as you can see by the posting date. Joined in December of 2005 after I used my FEMA money to buy an mx73.
  20. This is just here for those who might need help with 5spd swap on x8. -Clutch pedal is from MK3 supra modified for x8 firewall. -Clutch master cylinder is from a 90 celica ($20 at AutoZone). -I had a steel braided line made locally to go from master to slave for $30. -I used a stock w58 slave. -I used a W58 from my x7 as well as my front half shaft which required the flanges to be swapped. -Also pictured is the wiring I did for the Start-neutral switch which is just clipped together. And the reverse lights is also pictured. The only thing not pictured is the clipping of the start-neutral wire that goes to the cruise control so it will work. There are other things I did but this should help.

    Mx83 front strut/coil removal HELP! Suspension

    Where was the common sense from OP? Just follow the strut to where it stops and has bolts and unbolt.

    Do you guys think this IS300 is worth it?

    I got my sister an 02 for 7500 with 85k miles. Check timing belt. Make sure you get a master key. If it isn't an 02 or higher, fuck it. Make sure it has a spare since those shitty wheels or on it. Check for oil leaks.

    FS 86 MX73 track project/chassis

    I can’t give the love and attention needed to my X7. It has been sitting in my backyard for three years. It is rusting and rotting away. I have been offered money for it by some of the local guys but they are not true enthusiasts and I would prefer the parts and/or car go to a good home. I am way down in the New Orleans area. Just a rundown of stuff on the x7: -Gutted to the metal (no carpet or sound deadening), just door panels and door guts, two front seats, and dash. Sunroof gone, everything behind dash is gone. -X8 lca, spindle/strut, steering arms, and 5 lug hub. T3 tension rods. -G’s rear five lug arms with s13 shock/strut mount (can be seen in his thread about his x7 he was building five years ago). The bearings were also replaced in them. The hubs themselves from G are 430.00 -Rear is currently sitting on an s13 strut and stock x7 springs so it can roll. -G’s original solid subframe bushings for the x7. I have never driven on G’s stuff, just installed and rolled around the yard. -Whiteline rear swaybar. And stock bar. -Stock, from the factory manual setup/pedals, master cylinder, and slave are still on it. I have taken the speedo cable, w58, and front half of driveshaft for my x8 5lug swap. -Extra sets of front head lights (just knew I would eventually wreck the car) -I have a mishmash of wheels on the car. I have two s14 5lug wheels on the front and 1 x8 spare and 1 x8 wheel on the back. -I have everything stock for the suspension to put it back together as it was. I have the oem tension rods, x7 steering arms, lca, strut assembly, can’t remember if I have the hubs. I have the oem rear lcas and struts. -I have enough 4 lug wheels for it. -I have a spare AFM for it and three CT26s from my turbo bullshit. I have the Frankenstein motor (7MGTE bottom/5MGE head) and the original 5speed harness and ecu. -Stock LSD that still works ( the only thing that could get me sideways on 4 cylinders). -Innovative wideband kit Chassis has 264k miles on it. I bought it in 2005 from Hattiesburg, MS. Looking to sell the whole thing and hope whoever gets it can make better use of it because I don’t have the time or the money. I am not in any rush to get rid of it so I can wait. I would prefer not stripping the parts off of it and shipping them. I figure I will give it a couple of months before I start thinking of taking parts off and shipping them. There is a little more than 1k of parts alone for this vehicle. Make offers.
