  1. After 50+ years of production, the X chassis is finally being cancelled. https://global.toyota/jp/newsroom/toyota/27847378.html
  2. For anyone here or searching on google wanting to put a JZX100 1JZ VVTi in a IS300 you need to swap the oil pan from the stock 2JZ to the 1JZ for it to clear the crossmember. You also need to swap the oil pickups as well for it to align with the more forward and deeper sump of the IS300 2JZ. I am not sure if you need to do this with a JZX110 1JZ because I am sure they are very similar to IS300 being the chassis are nearly identical. IS300 2JZ left, JZX100 1JZ right JZX100 1JZ top, IS300 2JZ bottom

    so the goal for the engine is basically keep it looking as near stock as possible but do around 400 wheel. still trying to decide on what standalone to go with. ecumaster, aem, link or haltech.

    speaking of kids slowing down builds, the most exciting thing for the car lately is finding all the original rear badges. paid $200 for these.

    Well to be honest; one thing does happen when you have kids... you start to like them. This changes you dynamically. Sometimes it enhances your other interests, sometimes it distracts you. But one thing for sure is, you will have as much passion for them as you do for any of your hobbies. For a man, it takes more time, but one day you'll be in the garage and the urge to play with your son is as strong as the urge to finish whatever thing you're working on. Hopefully they grow up liking what you like.

    working harder > selling shit you love. i feel one of the most important things you can pass down to your kids is your passion. these lifeless zombies these welfare abusers are pumping out have no interests and no hope. they scare the shit out of me and will probably be the undoing of this place. so keeping your car and projects is more nobal and far more important to the wellbeing of your children then selling for a few thousand dollars that will just solve a couple months of problems.

    @LUMBERZACK not the same blacks on both the LS and ES. ES used a different grey too. 24S combo (205/180) was only used on the 91-92 JZX81 2.5GTs.

    @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.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    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!
