    1989 Cressida

    Hey losers, Any of you guys interested buying my red '89 cressida? I think I only need one of these turds in my life and i can let this one go. It's got: 1JZ VVTI- Auto from a JZS171 -All new seals -Timing belt -New VVT-i Gear -X7 Steering Rack 3" CX Racing Intercooler and 2.5" Piping Big auto trans cooler Oil Filter Relocation kit with XRP lines Battery relocated in the trunk New KYB Shocks New 195/65R15 Tires New R1 Concept Slotted rotors w/ Ceramic Pads New AN A/C Lines I've been driving it for a year now, its a great daily and super comfortable.. I just keep going back to the white car. I'm sure it needs some general maintenance (replacing old bushings) I'm looking for 4.5K, might be a little steep for you cheap fucks but it's all done properly.

    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.

    How short are you? i installed my seat and the shit hit the door pillar.. i'm either too close or too far.
  7. 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
  8. the car has been this way for 4 years, it recently decided to drip like a single drop a week (from the o-ring in the cable)... I'm just doing the swap for the ecu to have a speed signal and two step to break more shit. it was just a statement, there's no rocket science behind it. @WhoreMouth_Jr both gears are interchangeable and are held the same way, what bracket would you be talking about
  9. I have a jzx100 soarer trans, i retrofitted the mk3 shifter to fit my car... its not the prettiest deal but it works.. THE CLUSTER WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT THE CABLE, the AEM gauge will show my speed... again, unless i buy the cluster
  10. this is it I always liked keeping track of my mileage but california doesnt give a fuck about old cars, i was trying to log the odometer on this 2007 G35 and the fuckers left it out because it's irrelevant... so fuck it. the digital sender will go to the ecu and feed it to the AEMnet gauge... i'm so tempted to buy the CD5 I sold my corolla and used half of that to buy the new ride... pretty comfy deal it was a bit of a shit show because i bought the swap 4 years ago and finally drove it only to find that 3rd gear was shit, so i bought a whole other beams swap and changed out the trans.. good as new and ready for the new owner
  11. White car still being white car... I'll be getting rid of the cable speedometer and going digital to stop the trans from leaking and get the two step working on the Infinity... And then I got this thing two weeks ago, I like it.. i'll like it more when i put a 2j in it..

    1989 Cressida

    I was halfheartedly trying to sell the car originally.. but now i can really get rid of it, price updated. I got a '07 G35 for insanely cheap, will 2j the shit when the VQ shows any needs greater than an oil change.
  14. I just wired up a beams in an 86, let me know if you got any questions.

    I ran BOTH wires from the fuel pump out through a bulkhead fitting to a connector. A connector with big enough terminals to handle the AMPS. Once i did that, never had an issue

    those tiny wires between the pump and dtm connector are going to melt.
