  6. Hey guys, so its been a while since I've updated on my build or anything like it so here's what has been going on. After my red cressida got rear ended in the great socal asshole traffic one fine morning, everything went downhill. I fought the insurance from salvaging the title, and i prepared for the worst by buying another BHG special. Luckily i won and got to keep the car, they gave me 1400 to fix the damages so i came up on that, since the spare cressida was only 600 bucks. unfortunately one day while my gf was following me home at night, she noticed my lights flickering all weird n stuff. It eventually got worse and was messing with all my lights, so I decided then to swap everything over to my new chassis rather than diag the problem. So as all this happened, I got my gf a job where i work (we dont live together, and its not as bad as it seems, our company is pretty big and i hardly see her) so I had the chance to carpool with her. At that point i decided to partially nut up and do bad ass shit.. So i picked up CelicaDrifter's old running 7m super cheap and tossed it in the red cressida, and sold the red cressida. Then i also sold the broken 7M off the white cressida too!(gotta love stupid people!) From then on i focused on my 2j, The plan was to go turbo on USDM GTE electronics. So thinking im a badass, I went ahead and got a harness and cut it all apart. I installed some 7mgte 440s and got to starting For those of you who dont know, If you plan on doing this, USE 2JZGE VVTi COILS! unless you plan on using a FFIM, that of which i was not so there was the first bump on the road... Lucky for me, being a machinist i made it work Made it all pretty.. did some preventative maintenance, new cam seals, re-sealed the oil pan, new plugs and stuff like that Then i got on to turbo manifold fitment, i got a t4 manifold china crap for cheap, and i've got a fresh holset going in i had to convert it to T3 so i had a local shop tig the flange and clock it properly and ended up with this So as this far in, i decided to BAR the swap and put all the turbo stuff on hold. I did the very last bit of checking on the wires and then moved on to the trans Everything was smooth to this point and dropped the engine in... Here's where things got interesting, after days of wiring up the car and ecu into the harness, i finally got to go ahead and crank the damn thing... and as life had started go downhill... so did the cressida. At the first crank, we realized something was wrong, it sounded horrible, so we took the timing cover off to check timing and found something unimaginable... My dam Intake cam snapped! at this point of frustration i was hating this car, not understanding what went wrong, i just left the car to sit untouched for a week till my brothers got together and bitched me out about losing to a car, so i got back on and picked up another cam at the junk yard and started the teardown of the already put together car this is what i found... At some point a clamp from the hose that goes into the back of the head, fell in under the cam and remained there the whole time... luckily nothing else was bent or broken, only the timing belt got stretched out.. so back again, i placed everything back and went on about trying to start it. After a week of not knowing why it wouldnt start up.. i realized that while drinking and working on the car, i mixed the fuel feed and return lines, like a dumbass. From there i got stuck at idle and couldn't do much anything else. I eventually got help for wiring master Mark Panic which helped me realize that i had wired the TPS wrong. which lead me to believe i wired the MAP sensor wrong too... Because of this the car did rev up but only to 4k, the car had gone into limp mode running nearly at 7:1 AFRs (because the MAP was actually right to begin with) eventually i figured that out and fixed the MAP sensor, then everything went back to normal at idle, now the car would fall on its face if i would try to accelerate (completely lean out) here's where i felt stupid(more so than all of the previous problems) like i had mentioned earlier i was running the USDM ECU because i wanted to BAR the swap, hence functioning EGR and all that crap. The 440cc injectors couldn't work with the ECU that runs on 550cc injectors Fortunately, I had bought a JDM ecu and mad it all work just the day before Toyota Fest. So without any test driving i set out to the show, car ran slightly rich at idle because of the IAT that i hadn't installed, but none the less, i made it just fine, there and back. so how slowly but surely i have been fixing all the kinks without any rushing n such, car runs great with the IAT in pace now, Car runs super smooth, great power band, even without the turbo still. This Wednesday i have an appointment with the Bureau of Automotive Repairs to get my swap Legalized Had people tripping out on my distributor without any plugs There is plenty more stuff that im missing, and will add up on this thing soon enough
  7. I sold my red cressida to some russian guy who pays me to work on it now, pretty sweet deal. I finally got around to upgrade the fuel system in the white cressida, 400whp got boring and i said fuck it. I was hoarding all these parts for about a year now and finally getting close to finishing it.

    ^that's james meningitisđŸ˜‚ these cars are useless from the beginning, then some of us make them fast and useless. Then, there's the few of you who make them ugly, useless, and useless.

    lol how fast can their cars go around parc? I think Odom was one of the few guys who drove their cars 100+ miles a day, i do about 80 a day... when i get around to driving the car.

    I get the vibrations too my car broke two w58 from all the vibrations.... I think it's related to drivetrain angle and differential lash. I managed to make my shit make it to 90 and not be too bothersome, but i usually coast around 60-70 so I've learned to live with it. Solid Diff and Subframe bushings don't help at all...

    I really doubt the drill is to blame... given the rest of the build as evidence.

    Have any of you guys tried doing this conversion? I'm going to give it a try just because i got a spare engine and cressida... we'll see how it goes.

    The 'net is FULL of +1K used to shit R154 with 7M bellhousings... sure that's cool for you, but your engine needs to run to make power hahahaha I just have spare time and cars, if i can put a spare 2jzgte in any car with a 5 speed i can sell it to some jamoke for 7K... i'll be good

    so what you're saying i should do is do this swap with the 84 mercedes instead where the rear is around 3.5 and there are options of 2.8 all over the place...

    nice, but... That air intake temp sensor is an eye sore, and you could rotate the top of that fuelab regualtor so the vacuum hose doesnt have to loop around.
