  1. Real content ! Thanks Urrik, there is hope for this place yet ! Personally, I would have just stuck it in my lathe, and turned the snap ring grove up a little, but few have that option available.

    Because he just graduated from skate boards, and thinks he knows how to turn wrenches. This type of person is why the 7M got a bad reputation.... Well, that, and it was an out dated design, trying to make way too much power.

    3” cat-back REINHARD exhaust

    3", from Japan ? Is this an eyeball measurement of some sort, or did Japan suddenly switch to the English system over night ? Maybe you bought it from streeter's Yahoo-JP auction listings, in which case it's CDM (Chinese domestic market). I have a JDM stainless exhaust, and it measures 80mm.....Not 3".

    "What mounts and driveshaft do i need to make it work? " Oh, I'd say ones that fit... Summit Racing has them, but you have to call, as they are not catalogue items. But because of the popularity of the car, they had some made up. Talk to Jimmie, he handles all the import stuff.
  5. Hope the new owner drifted the shit out of it, hit the wall, and a dozen rat 240s with it, then scrapped it, putting it out of it's misery.... By the way, if you can handle it, there are lexus forums on the net.

    WTB 89-91 Cressida fan shroud

    Sounds like a job for the fiberglass guys. I'm sure Jose can whip them out. They might be warped, and will break easily, but they will be cheap. Any sheet metal shop can whip one out. Or do like I do, just never put the engine in the car, it won't over heat.....

    Fiberglass parts D_ApexWorks mx83/jzx81

    The one he shows there isn't the single vent style that he said he was working on. Not to mention the underside ribs look like shit, along with extra vents toward the rear, which is a high pressure area. Oh well, guessing that breathing polyester fumes, along with cheap vodka rots brain cells or something.

    Hm, been 2 months, since showing this, and I have yet to see a price. Are you actually going to make this ?

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    @zack I know running better tires helps a lot with grip, but I guessing that would cost too much for the wanabe drifters. Don't see very many Toyo R888, or R1R tires here, no good sticky Yokohama 048 or Dunlop Direzza rubber. Nothing I would ever see on a pro level drift car. In fact, I probably run grippier tires on my truck.

    Just don't want to hear any fucking thing that even sounds like 'harness bar'.

    Ha, I have half that in just my engine.........a 7M.... Don't let anyone tell you that drug use when your young doesn't fuck your brain up!
  16. But, but, T3 has 'bling' ! Bling is way more important than function, right ? T3 could anodize scrap aluminum, and someone would buy, and bolt it onto their ride, without even knowing what it was for. Oh wait, they already do.....

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    Cars also look better without crumpled fenders.....and I see very few members here that can go out and play that game without crumpling fenders, or shredding 'glass.

    --- its a drift car not a show car--- Then why are you throwing $$ at aero ???

    Kyle Anson's Cresshita Build Thread

    Is there any bracing on the top at all ? Does it bolt up to the stock bumper attachment points on the chassis ?
  20. So $400. Seems a little late to the party, seeing I showed how to put a Koyo IS300 radiator into the X8 10 years ago. They cost $260. 46mm doesn't seem all that large. My custom Fluidyne for my X8 is 50mm, and the off the shelf nazkar Griffin for my Datsun has a 63mm core.

    You can't get much of a paint job for $600 unless you have a but buddy in the business. Well, not one that would look as good as $2600 seats, or $3200 wheels & tires.
  23. By 1984 I got fed up with southern Canada (Wisconsin) weather, and moved to Texas. Now I wonder why it took me 30 years to figure it out...

    digital speedometer x8

    But you don't have a lathe or a mill in your garage If I had told people that I was going to put the 5th gear assembly out of an IS300 trans into my X8's A340E, they would have said the same thing. It wasn't a bolt-on mod, but it worked. There are bearings with the same OD, but different ID, as there are ones with the same ID, but different OD. Cases can be bored, shafts can be turned, and sleeves can be pressed into housings or on shafts. I just think people have not tried hard enough yet.....
