    @AcidTrip @battleaxe so i asked the guy who re-painted this car in japan what color codes he used and he said the following... US Toyota's that match 205: Toyota Paseo in Satin Black Metallic (205) from 1996-1997 US Toyota's that match 180: Lexus LS in Flint Gray Pearl (180) from 1990-1994

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    I tried to connect techstream and it just kept giving a ecu communications error. It's probably my cheap ass china reader. FYI we tried the OBD2 port and the Diag plug (with adapter harness). Counting the blinks still worked though you grandstanders.

    this whole diagnosis process was pretty fun. i had no idea how knock sensors worked until that night. also we both learned that non-us denso ecus love to trigger codes only during the event. so it’s critical to drive the car, trigger the event, and without shutting the car off, jump the tc to e1 and get the current active codes. it will save you heaps of time and help avoid the part swap black hole JZs can lead you down. also learned how important knock sensors are to turbo JZ ecus. jzxp garage is always open to locals!

    hah thanks. another update; because i am a pedantic asshole with some sick obsession on keeping this car as original looking as possible, i decided to just rewheel the stock twins vs going single (yeah welcome to 2004 right). so along with that rad downpipe, i'm going to see if he can help make a custom y pipe as well. comp turbo is building the turbos now, thanks @Demesio for dropping off your old junk. so with those, a new pump and injectors, new ic, and a link (or haltech?), let's see if I can do a few hp over stock and call it good.

    Everything changed when the track was bought by the reservation. Back when it was Firebird International and owned by a private company they had the track opened a lot more. I guess the reservation thought the land was now too valuable to review the lease, so Firebird sold the facility to the reservation and it was renamed to Wild Horse Pass. They promised to keep it open for a while, but you know they will eventually tare it all down and build a casino closer to the freeway. After that, we won't have any tracks left in AZ other than AMP which has crazy noise restrictions still.

    back in the dark days (~2001) all us az folk used to drift a abandoned air field out on the east side. it had such coarse asphalt it was nicknamed tire hell. anyway, most of the original drifter scene was started there. Phoenix International was a fun track to drift back in the day too, I took my first Cressida there. 100+ mph entries (I didn't have the balls for that shit). There were drift events almost every weekend about 15 years ago it seemed, it's quieted down a lot lately.

    well i already bought this one, so i’ll wait until it breaks i guess. i did check those nuts and they are steel, so maybe they upgraded it since the earlier versions?
