    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    I think the only creator comfort is power steering and elec windows. I have to say I find the X6 seats more comfortable then the X8. but yeah this is a bit of a resection of a car. it is sort of that car i hate enough to thrash it, but like it enough to make it semi-decent and the reason im making it a replica of my old car is to keep people from sooking as 99% of people would not know the real HKS/Tezuka car has become something more suited to me dreams and not the peoples

    So went to trail fit my Struts and well lower bush does not fit, another case of the internet says it is a bolt-on swap and well......... that definition of bolt-on is very different for some people on the side of good news, after months of waiting for the weld in threads, they are here. So this will allow me to bolt in the MX41 rear diff subframe to give the stock appearance. the front ones are probably overkilled but they will allow me to bolt in AE86 Caster/tension mounts opening up the world for aftermarket items. Still, three weeks lockdown before anything crazy can happen but pretty happy that the parts collection is getting there enough where all the custom stuff is completed and it is a case of buying off the shelf items.

    So a bit of progress on this. Had a local come check it out, worked out a deal to get some fabrication work done. so the front will be repaired (new rad support not tube front) in doing so, I picked up an S14 240SX cross member this then lead me to buy a rack, get the new Ciscokids street knuckles. (Essentially Tezuka freedom street knuckles. got with his permission to build) and Started working on LCA Design for another Ciscokids product. as the whole reason for this car was R&D to offer more products to my customers so other than needing caster rods and an upgrade in suspension from the key office to shock works. the front end of this thing will be complete I have everything else.

    I have the X6 seats to pass engineering, I also have a TRD Bucket and well..... stock X3 rail bolted up so that was a huge win.

    So no real update on this, more problem-solving. I was currently trying to work out how I can get 4 point ABS sensors working and retrofitting something. I'm looking into Bosch/Continental Motorsport ABS packages and using the sensors will allow me to take better control using the Emtron KV8 with things like launch control/traction control etc. So here is stock X8 upright then X100 (upside down) both seem to be 100% the same and my control arms bolt up to it. just the X100 has the port for the speed sensor. Trying to find a driveshaft that will work, this is a mix of JZX81, IS300, IS200 and JZX81 (Yamaha), JZA70 and X83, spoke to the driveshaft shop and it is possible to mix and match ends, but I would want to be close to knowing what will fit, as it will cost a bit each time. I guess I could learn to do it myself, but that is a lot of rebuilding of perfectly fine axles. Probably pointless to the rest of you, but maybe someone works in the industry or knows a bit more about CVs etc. X100 and IS seem to have this style of bearing and X8,A7 have measurements of the outer CV X8 X9 (assume the same as X100?) That is pretty much where I'm at with working this out, with lockdown it is hard as I can't go to the local CV joint workshop and ask for help. The Interior is all in, a little issue with what seems the head unit is too large and not allowing me to bolt radio surround. But im going to re-look at this as I also forgot to hook up the reverse wire to allow my reverse camera to work. Yes, I installed a camera because after having it, it is hard to go without lol. The engine has been wheeled out, to start preparation of getting it ready. Exhaust manifold went off to get EGT bungs welded on, got a Rebuild kit for the wastegate, and the intake manifold is off to get machined down to look neater and a Bosch DBW throttle body adaption. So hopefully once lockdown is over I can go pick these items up and fit them, then it will just be a case of throwing all the bolt on's and a couple of little things like alternation relocation and sensor upgrades.

    some of these updates have already been posted here, but was easier for me to copy and paste So here is my update when where I'm at given the present COVID/Melb Restrictions. After months and months, my swift springs arrived, it was a hard choice on what spring rate to go considering IRS Swap, MX32 etc. no real information to go, I did some research based on MA61/X7s and cars of the same weight like Silvias and opted to start with an 8KG spring. Current engine status? Well, one step forward two steps back? No, No Removed the ITB just before lockdown and dropped them off to EFI hardware to get DBW swap done. (See Facebook link below) I have added in some digital sensors, Why it is just a 2JZGE? The whole reason was to set this car up for the future as well as a spare parts engine for my other car's. If something goes wrong, I can remove a part and test it on another engine for troubleshooting. I have upgraded to Bosch wideband knock sensors and installed the Greddy Sandwich plate. The plan is to run Oil pressure on the hole you can see. The original plan was to run temp on the one you cant, but having to line the bolt up perfect for allowing that port to get oil I have changed my mind and have opted to go with a speed flow fitting with a port on it and screw it on the central outlet fitting. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=195546038168351&extid=jR4W7VgIyT49lLfa I have fitted the X6 interior items, nothing crazy changes other than armrest and headrests at the back and of course style. Oh, and engine mounts have started.

    To be honest, I'm working on one more so than the rest, I just buy items for the others when a bargain comes along. So Project Binchicken for example, I needed to buy new rear doors, bonnet for it, so I decided to mould these items so Blackbird can get the Carbon/fibreglass makeover. I Have a Yamaha front spoiler and I'm a little scared to use it, so making a replica of it and will use it on the street ETC. the X3, is pretty much waiting on 8 threaded inserts and lockdown to end.

    Anyway, while I typed the above response I had a delivery arrive. swift springs so now my rear springs are complete and just awaiting my weld in inserts. stupid COVID slowed postage of that right down.

    The media/government can go each way. like in Australia, media is reporting stats. now we all know stats can be viewed a 1000 different ways. like you can flip a basic report to show you are failing and these are your worst items, but if you flip it the other way this is your wins and best sales. the same goes for our COVID data, they are reporting a basic 24 hour period, how many tests they did and how many people have covid. but then you get idiots, complaining that the data is miss leading, it is not measurable. well technically it is not but if you want the full data you just need to go to the source and that is our deaths, marriages and births site. like you can't expect a media outlet to do a report that suits everyone, our government is pretty good to like things happen etc, but overall you can't really complain about Australia. people sook about immigrants but give it a generation and it is normally fine after that. for example mum/dad both immigrated in the 70s, both copped the whole Australia vs wog thing (don't know if you know the term wog in America just means European pretty much) skip a generation to me, and i never copped it, the whole thing was Asians being the problem. skip the next generation Asians are fine and it is afghans/middle east the problem. i think our school system is what makes it good, like everyone sort of has to play together and parents sort of just end up going with the flow, like if you kid brings someone home you sort of look after them as you would want their family to your kid. . in saying all this though, i was lucky enough to grow up in the most multi cultural part of Victoria.

    It is pretty crazy to be honest, The stupid part here is we have stupid Australians who watch too many youtube videos on conspiracies etc and are quoting American law/rights to police and then the police just give them a wack, arrest them and they cry, the victim. it's just stupid. i have had to delete friends off and they have deleted me for calling out some of the stupid things they have said. Had one try and relate Covid to an artificial intelligence exercise to grab data from people. but you can normally relate to those people who are a little simple-minded and cant have there mind changed due to factual information. I guess your troubleshooting/scientific mindset you could call it.

    I originally had eBay/China spec headers for this car. as per amazon link https://www.amazon.com/OBX-Exhaust-Header-TOYOTA-2JZ-GE/dp/B005R4JTAQ But when i made the move from 4AGE spec ITB to this billet one, i soon sold the headers as there was no way i could put cheap China spec headers on the opposite side of a billet ITB setup. it just looked so out of place. so yeah now i plan to fork out big dollars to have a propper exhaust made up, equal length to the right length for good performance, i might go 3 - 2 as i would love to have twin exhaust like yours the whole way down and my ECU can run twin wide band o2 sensors. so it makes sense to. as for lockdown, the 2nd lockdown is shit because all shops are closed and so on, but well worth it as we are only a week in and already see a decline in new cases, while deaths are up they would be a result of past week's infections. the hardest part is people not understanding the situation, while we have had a full lockdown. people who live week to week or have been effected are saying it is not good, they should have eased into the situation and so on. but when you think about it, we did try and ease into it. we did well until a couple of selfish people wrecked it for everyone. why this 6 week lockdown might affect people for the 6 week's it is better than doing things at 20-30% for the next 6 months.

    We are currently in a hard 6 week lockdown, shops are closed other then essential etc. so other then buying on line all work has stopped and I'm limited to a 5km radius of my house. I wanted to go there but i can't take the risk for that price, with my car being RHD, X3 and custom steering I'm just better of going my own route. https://www.shopfigs.com/v3/engine-perf/cat-exhaust/IS300_ELHEADER

    Not made yet, will be equal length 6 - 1 setup I think. maybe 3 - 2 I need to get the car rolling first and also fix the steering column. I have a bit of movement I would like to remove.

    Forgot to add, I have purchased about 8 of these weld in inserts. had them made to suit standard Toyota thread this will allow me to make the cross member on the rear, as well as the AE86 castor arm mounts bolt in factory looking. The whole front end should be AE86 other than custom LCA (AE86 extended maybe 3-35mm/ inch and half-ish) and of course, some form of longer rack ends. I will do better write ups once everything has arrived and i can start doing more detailed posts As for stickers, if you want some just PM me your address and i will send you some
