    WTB JZX100 JZ engine mount brackets

    Sorry I haven't been on here... I used RHD Japan's forwarding agent system when I brought in my HPI trans. But there are many others.

    Do you have a forwarding agent that you use? Have them contact Egg Mall.

    Do you have the part number(s) ? How about a complete chassis code?

    Just say fuck it, and torch the wheel wells out. That won't make me respect you, or this build any less.
  8. The Bosch EV14 injectors are supposedly meter fuel at very low pulse widths, which make secondary injectors unnecessary. I have 750s going into the 7M, for doing sequential injection, with them only being on when the valves are open, instead of up to 80%, and fuel puddling on the valve before it opens. Had to do a lot of digging to find split flow, in a horizontal pattern, but I did. Bosch # 0280158123. Everyone had them in an angled pattern, with one fuel stream hitting the roof of one port, and the base of the other. Makes for poor fuel distribution in the combustion chamber, which leads to detonation issues, unless you set it up overly rich.
  9. I say fuck the "de-tuned" part, because all motor hear, but agree on the rest. Have the type-1 BM nose myself. I want to do two cross tubes, one at the bottom, and one at bumper height, plus lay some extra 'glass into the bottom to keep my nose from disintegrating if I come across a raccoon at night. Wish I had access to a tube bender, but am at the mercy of some damn cage builder, so pretty sure this will be a can of worms. Someone on here did make up a nice 'bash bar', don't remember who it was, but it would have done the trick. Seems like I asked about getting a duplicate, but don't remember ever getting a reply. I will have to do some digging later. Just checked, didn't keep a copy of the image.
  10. How are you planing to support the nose?

    LoL, NoTech Toy Tuning. When you really need something to fail, buy TTT shit. I built a Watts link setup for my Datsun, and there is ZERO side to side movement. Bet you have a lot of angle on that panhard bar. Worst fucking way on earth to control side movement on a solid rear axle. You are about to receive the 'Top X-chassis Bubba Award' of all time. LoLoL Use a baseball bat instead of magazines... (on your head, not the Toyota)

    Yeah, the age old 'torque' claim, right before some kid in a honda civic hands you your ass... No wonder chicago is such a shit hole, with people like you living there...

    Neither of the first two statements surprise me, coming from someone with the mentality of a 12 tear old. I run 4.56 gears, and I can cruise down the freeway at 140, and it has a lot more above that. Guessing your pos 'merican pig iron engine is just like any other 'merican pig iron engine.

    You have the mentality of one, so... Like what, none of the cheesy chevy forums want you either?

    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    SSRs, my kind of ugly.... Anyway, that is one thing about black, dust seems to stand out. Too bad windshield wipers won't clean the whole car, or maybe you don't drive it fast enough...

    Oh, the royal piss bag, and the steel intercooling piping really makes it look, well, like shit. Pistol grip will make it look like mexican diarrhea. You will love it when rust scale starts entering that pos 'meracan pig-iron V8-2.

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Guess it's about time I do a build thread instead of throwing out bits of my stuff everywhere else. It's not going to be in any fucking order. I will post my currant accomplishments, and fill in once in a while with past doings. Just finished building my X8 clutch master cylinder, 3/4" bore to work with my Coleman coaxial throw-out bearing set-up. Rue enlightened me on the 5/8" bore master being a little on the weak side for dislacement. Trouble is, the run of the mill 3/4" masters here have the wrong reservoir for the X8. I know people cram them in, but I wanted the long angled reservoir that belongs on an X8 (same as the IS300 / Mk4 Supra). So after hours of surfing, I found that the Land Criusers in other parts of the world have the correct style of reservoir mount, and are 3/4" bore. So I found one, that is aluminum, and changed out the plastic from one of my spare IS masters. Had to make a spacer for the front, so that it would mount correctly, and used a 5mm stainless shcs, instead of the roll pin that comes from Toyota.
