    all day i dream about cars...

    I am not really sure what's up with the sway bar link.. It won't even come close to connecting so I just disconnected it totally until I am smarter. Next thing is to weld the diff since it is no longer my daily driver.. And then some drifting finally after like 3 years.. Hopefully I still know how.

    the pt cruiser tie rod ends were pretty much just to get my car to the show. will be purchasing the xcessive ones before i do any real driving. they are a couple hundredths off the factory ones. and kyle, its not my style and apparently its not your style but he's working on cars. if you guys had your way every cressida would look exactly the same and no one would give a shit about any of them.

    some updates! got around to installing the Xcessive FLCAS. found out that a minor hit and run i had this winter fucked up one of my lower mounts time for a new crossmember before serious driving. also got my front coils installed finally after 3 years of sitting on a self even all the adjusted in they weren't compatible with the stock tie rod ends. after researching on the Moog website i found that PT Cruiser tie rods have the same thread pitch and almost exactly the same taper, plus theyre over a half inch longer. got bored and installed some mk3 supra fogs i had lying around and managed to get the car to the CUSCC car show (still have tape on my headlights, sorrynotsorry)

    still cant figure out why some of the images above are not displaying.. the urls work.. w/e they are not important. current news: car is still driving well! survived two drives over Vail Pass, some terrible Denver winter weather, and a hit and run by some dickhole in his work truck. just did my final conventional oil change before switching to redline 10/40 synthetic. just installed the Techno Toy Tuning 4-link bars and the panhard bar. no more wheel hop but there are many new sounds and feels. i have been told by a couple people that having spherical ball end 4-link bars are not advisable for street use because they can break the mounts. this is pretty worrysome so haven't been hauling too much ass since the install. here is, in my opinion, the weakest mount. do you guys think this needs reinforcement? could i just seam weld it? also, just received these! cannot wait to install.
  6. also they make some badass watts link conversions for 8.8s, so i guess only downside would be weight.. but with a nice big turbo and an AEM V2 from Mark it wouldn't even matter. soon to be making x8 guys jealous of x7 suspension?? haha
  7. Thanks everyone, just got a new job so will be getting rolling on this soon.. And yeah, I've seen those aluminum axles at junk yards, the diameter is massive but would be pretty baller. I'll prolly look around for a supra one for a little while before going 8.8 for 4lug and weight savings.
  8. Thank you guys for the replies. I have seen an older previa, probably mid 80s, at a local junk yard, but was unsure what type of diff it had. I may just go buy it and crack it open. I'll do some more research on Toyota truck axles as well.. And yes, all mk1 supras have the 7.5 axle as far as I know. HERE ARE POSTS FROM FOR SALE THREAD (sorry for post 2 threads): sounds like the 8.8 is a good option too... just looking for a couple minutes i found 2 under $300

    WTB: MA47 axle (unicorn axle)

    final goal will be reliable 450hp daily that i can do a bit of streeto and drift events over the summer. as far as i know that is not possible with the stock axle.
  10. i recently called Weir Performance, who make LSD shim kits, and axles for AE86s. they said they can make custom 7.5" diff axles for the AE86 for $2K-$3K. this doesn't seem to be a bad option since i have already accepted that this is gonna be a $20K shitbox before i'm done. has anyone seen or used one of their axles? has anyone heard of any better options for me? i hate to open this can of worms again but their just isn't a good solution yet since the MK1 axle is harder to find than big dick pills that work. another note: guy at Weir insisted that older cressida wagons such as the 81 had a 7.5" axle...and that AE86 axles cannot bolt to the wagon. i am not sure about either of these statements.

    Thanks man, never thought I'd be spending close to a grand on a rusty axle.
  12. i have cash in hand. seems like this is the hardest part of my wagon build to locate. any help with locating one will be much appreciated!!!!

    i need to install that thermostat soon! 143 degrees seems quite low but i guess that wouldn't create any issues as long as the fan controller is set right. i've always wondered if there would be any issues running your engine at say 160 degree water temp instead of the normal 185-195. would this create more wear on internal parts or maybe a small amount of blow-by due to parts not expanding to where they normally would? you guys will chastise me for this but i was having overheating problems in the hottest part of the summer and i added 3 dryer hoses, 1 aiming at the intake, one aiming at the turbo and one aiming at the radiator and temps lowered by 1/6th according to my gauge and my fans actually have a duty cycle now. ok, so did some research and i am an idiot for propping my hood. seemed like common sense, air would leave through the vent and make it so more air could come in, and since hot air rises hot air would be forced out of the vent.. but due to various pressure systems apparently at high speeds air would actually be forced in through the vent and would interfere with the normal cooling system of the car. to actually cool the car better i would have to figure out ways of routing more of the air that hits the front of the car through the radiator and let it figure its own way out of the car.

    about the volvo lip, just trying to cover up the giant gap left by the missing center valance thing. and the compressor surge might be due to the fact that my BOV hose is attached to the turbine instead of the intake manifold, i figured less vacuum hose the better but the split second lag from the throttle body to the turbine might be meaning that the BOV opens a tiny bit late. and lastly cooling. i already have the dual mishimoto fan shroud installed. next things would be get some sheet metal and make a bottom plate, box in the rad and the intercooler and make heat shrouds for the turbo. i am trying to do everything i can to not have to cut holes in the bumper or hood.
