    Curse of the Cressida

    He has pics on his insta from before and photos of it tipped over just before we pulled it lol. Dropped it out Friday, real easy...after we put the car back up and also dragged the tank through gravel on boards pulling and tugging uphill...actual hell. Come to the conclusion I need a standalone for this motor so gonna grab a link g4 storm. Gonna grab a fluidampyr crank pulley, timing belt was done 10k kms ago. Needs a clutch and flywheel. I think I can reuse my clutch but I prefer to just get something new and be done with it, got the bell housing and my w58. Going to clean up all that and then redo the exhaust. My only concern is patch harness to the ecu as I'm stupid and this is not something I've ever done. Didn't realise ecus for IS are in the engine bay, and have their own cold air induction to cool the ecu...lol neat

    If u don't have a da sander, get one. Buzz the car down with 240/320. Block out any filler, sealer the whole car, then let that flash off, then shoot your colour. Make body work easier and quicker...as I imagine this will still be a skid car

    Does that chart means how much amperage it can take? I want to say I have 4-6gauge. My in line breaker is a 75amp breaker iirc

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    I find with most Android's I have issues with any sort of connectivity. I finally got a pixel which I hope solves most of those issues as it's not as far removed as most other phones trying to use Android as an os. I hate apple stuff but the fact everyone in NA uses them you always have answers to any problem that comes up.

    i dunno what size it is off hand, but its the size of a typical ground strap where it is normally. i think its a few sizes too small. my s13 has 0 gauge in it and oddly enough, the supra has simialr gauge wire iirc and its never had an issue. the cressida has a lot more electrical items than the supra does mind you. iunno. i think its something to replace anyways. factory bmw wiring for the power wire is bigger than what i have. maybe my starter needs to be pulled again and have a look over by the guys who rebuilt it.

    did one last event in the jzx yesterday. felt sloppy but stupid fast. got a short list of things that needs to get done to make me happy with it in the mean time. got full arms and bushs for the rear..gotta figure out the UCAs. drop the gas tank to make an access hole and plate that so when i need to change the walboro 255 out. redo and reorientate the back section of exhaust. go to 0 gauge power wire as i am having issues still when the car gets hot. fucking stupid on my part for doing less than 1 or 0 gauge. finish the seat rails as they are not finished on the passenger side, then paint them both. mount and paint the jzx rear bumper. get new front headlights maybe and then make sliders for the front bumper to be guided better. take apart he rear coils and confirm if theyre dead and require replacing...fuckin car has had them for like 10+yrs and has the equivilant of 3000kms on them. unless Matt did something super fucked with them at some point, im leaning towards shitty first gen stances...the lower bushings need to be replaced for heims anyways as theyre toast as well.the curse, continues

    i just wanna look good for you

    aii. makes sense. interesting choice for the rear, better than a solid rear axle in terms of having camber and toe, sucks a bit with the lack of much camber adjustment, but i like the idea. i guess made a new mount on the LCAs for the larger single large piston rear coils. all off the shelf toyota bits, and the few different differential ratios to chose from as well are bonuses

    If talking about my shitty wiring, I'm right there with you. What hoses are you talking about?

    Well Gordon's is a drop vent, typically the lowered edge runs the face of the motor and behind the fans so the hot air passing through the rad exits out the hood. Imo the best of the vents as it is fully functional and keeps engine bay temps down as well as double efficiency of the rad Multi vent hoods are placed shitty and have 3-4 open slots that COULD be utilized but many scensers don't know or care as their car doesn't see the road on rainy days or they live where it doesn't rain so they don't care. It's simple enough to place it further forwards and utilize it and if you have a long motor you can blank out the vents that do drop into the valleys but then you will also accumulate water in those now trays. Or u can do like I said and make a tray under there so it still gets rid of hot air and then runs the face of the motor. Or do nothing
