    [HIZOKU] PIG EYE Streeter

    So i thought it was time i made a build thread on the project im working on. Old owners build thread (no pictures showing, Might need access to view) http://www.auszoku.net/foru...r=asc&start=0 Not so much a a set goal car, just something all round fun, cool and a little different. Picked the X3 back in March 2014 from owner Sam First thing i did was bolt on chin spoiler and some flairs I then removed them and got over the whole scene kid STANCED bolt on flare look. During this time i started my project company Ciscokids (Cressida/X Chassis focused parts) bought a bunch of investment properties and shares and really gave up on car's. so of course the car's came to a halt. So this bring me to to 2015 and as apart of Ciscokids i bring over Tezuka for QR matsuri and meeting the QLD Guy's and the scene there really re-sparked my interest in car's again. So start sorting my Debt's and paying them off and then decided to propose to GF to find out this will put another year delay on me getting to play with car's When i got home i went to restore the car to get it back on the road and this happened. It took a year and a half to find a new rear windscreen. the goal was to then have the car for the wedding but delays at the painter meant i did not get the car back for 7 month's All inside boot painted, door jam's and behind doors painted in Toyota Black 202 the rest will be painted once i have fitted everything and welded up holes Changed my mind on the direction of the car and decided i wanted something presentable and something i would enjoy for the long haul do a bit of everything in. plus something the wife could drive. so plan's changed to 2JZGE VVTI Manual IRS Swap Remove Power Steering box People that know a lot of my builds follow silly themes's so like my other car's this is going Black with Tan trim with a engine theme. The JZX81 i have is the same Colour combo but with a HKS engine, having always wanted a Trust/Greddy engine i went that route. So that is when this started the current parts list for this engine are below. EFI Hardware Billet ITB Set EFI Fuel rail ATI Balancer Leeson engineering Alternator swap kit Leeson 2JZ Bolt kit Tomei Procam's (256/262 combo i think) Greddy Timing belt Greddy Cam gear Greddy Oil Cap Greddy Pullykit Greddy Oil filter relocation Uniflow sock filters (yellow) Still need to get a couple more item's more so service item's and a Custom equal length exhaust manifold made Sold off my old Autronic SM4 and purchased a Emtron KV8 Cross member swap. Out with the old I have modified a E7 Cross member to fit/work the reason i went this route was i already had AE86 coilovers in the car and wanted to keep the front end as simple as possible, with no power steering box i went with a FLO's quick rack to get this to work i had to trim it and make it shorter as well as re align the holes tried to use as much of the stock items as i could to make it look like a genuine item LCA lines up dead centre as per the old one, i might need to add MX62 arms for added length but i will have to wait until i get my brakes before i put the front end back in to test/trail Stranded internet chat, IRS is a bolt in swap no issues. Well as you can see A6/X7 IRS swap is about 660mm short each side Anyway fab work to get this fixed, i went with modding the sub frame vs the body to fit this and made a jig to suit. I want to try and use all the standard IRS points in the car Sub frame was put in place, bolted in flat then welded to the box steel so it would not move, then chopped i combined box steal inside the sub frame, and turned two sub frames into one by chopping one as a shell to cover the new box steal internals. I still need to move the trailing arm/IRS mount's back to the original position but awaiting camber adjustment mounts to be back in stock at raptor racing. had engineer go over it and he is happy to pass it. Now this car was never built for go fast/drifting so that is why i went this IRS, trying to keep it semi stock looking/feeling. Problems i have at the moment is handbrake cable mounting points are in the way of the cross member, so i need to move them to suit and work out what i will do in regards to cable's Parts i still need to buy RCA's 30mm ish Big brake kit Maybe swap bars New bushes all round some cool JDM wheels 14's maybe 13's rebarrled to 14's items i have and yet to fit TRD style drivers seat, Alpine speakers (old school JDM things) Old school Greddy gauges JDM Gauge Cluster (might mod the digital part of this gauge to have elite gauge fitted internally instead of garages.

    while the outside looks like crap, i have noticed he uses wood on the inside to brace it and i have to say that is great from a shipping prospective.

    So i herd back from him and got my tracking number and so on so my 2nd order of parts is coming. I advised him of this thread to say make contract with you as i did not know your insta/facebook. i suggest maybe you contact him and just simply start threatening him with posting all this up around social media. i have a tourerv.ru account (Russian JZX forum) i might be able to get you on there and start advising russians that he is not helpful, they have a whole thread on bad traders so are open to hearing bad situations.

    Contact Shockworks and see if Chris will provide, he built JZX81 Strut's off a stock car and took all the measurements to produce there off the shelf kit. he might not help but no harm in asking.

    I have JZX81 mark 2, was going to mould the stock hood because by doing so i could modify the top skin to suit any vents i wanted when i wanted. e.g DMAX Style vent, Freedom style Vent, BN Sports Vent, Msports twin vent. just mix and match styles. I dont do much Cressida stuff anymore as i was always spending time doing stuff for a car i dont have, so i can to borrow cars to trail fit and then i would make an item and i could not use it on my own car so i would have to then try and sell it to then get examples of it. just a head ache

    I need to buy a bonnet from him, but in saying that i do have a bonnet here i could mold i'm just getting lazy in regards to producing a mould and spending huge amount of money for something i could buy.

    Ok Boomer. @BoristheCat i ordered these Mid September and it took 12 weeks for them to manufacture (he advised me this at the start) i was provided tracking number it spent about 2 weeks at Mosco customs and from there it was straight forward. i got the items just before XMAS. i ordered my JZX81 items just before XMAS he had them made and ready to be shipped with tracking number last week however have spent a week at the post office.

    or just leave the forum you grumpy cunt.
  12. Anyway, thought i would make a build thread for the car i'm currently working on. Goal of this car is pretty much a fuck around street/drift car. so i purchased this car from Tassie sight unseen after what was described as interior is complete, and damaged repaired, had it shipped over and friend picked it up and the 1st msg I got was "do you know the condition of this car" lol so hopes had been smashed a little. The car was very cheap even after postage and well people who know JZX81's know there is only a handful in the country so i was ok with it i guess. As you can see in the pictures just about every panel on the car has issue's, the front rad support is fucked, strut rail passenger side fucked, dash items are all cracked or have holes in them. wires chopped just about everywhere and random shit missing. holes drilled into floor for battery and fire extinguisher, seats missing, seatbelts missing, just about everything LOL. i never had huge plans for this car, was going to turn it into the race car but i already have another JZX81 with weld in cage, tubbed front, etc so returning that one to stock seemed like more work than to just fix this one. so, I started the repair process. Purchased wreck with brown trim with intention of using rad support and so on. Purchased some seat's and started the process of putting this car back together Purchased an Alpine head unit was on sale and double din and only $150 so jumped on it and it’s not like I need features it’s not a daily. Contacted friends and asked what parts they had available and got front bumper, found a spare headlight in my stash of parts and have purchased front indicator's and a RH side headlight to complete all the lights. I have guards although flared i will probably run them. Engine wise it will get just about everything from my "race car JZX81" so HKS built 1JZ, Radiator, intercooler, GT3240 etc. I will post pictures up of it when i finishing putting the pulley kit and DBW swap on it. so overall, i hate the car and don’t mind denting it and so on as it will pretty much be a practice car and getting scrap parts i have had in storage over the years and will be the test mule for the race car. lesson learnt, don’t buy a car sight unseen LOL.

    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    Also hard to see but i have another black JZX81, so a lot of parts spare and it has been a bit of a shock the amount of items i have purchased and have had in storage for a good 10+ years. but also agree very lucky to be RHD

    So small update, Purchased some front bilstien coilovers with FD RX7 brake's for the car, so hopefully it should handle semi decent and stop on a dime. Found an X4 rear diff mount and purchased it to see how far off it would be from fitting. Here is picture vs MA61 mount Mount wise it looks like just some threaded bungs welded in and it would fix the issue, however not 100% sure as the old custom welded in mount was still in place. so i will remove that and have a fresh look when i have some time. Also got a delivery of the water pump and other little bit's, so i can finally finish the engine and put it all together ready to drop in. Here is a random picture of my two bulldogs lol

    It seems you have a problem with him not posting though, bit of a contradiction to your comment of report or move on?

    Gordo, it might be less quality then other item's on the market but it is also at the correct price point for it.
  20. Thought I would make a place we can all post new products we stumble across that are more X8 related anyway, Hardrace has bought out some lower arm's for X81's. i wonder if this will mean more products by them for X8s [/img] http://www.hardrace.com/VEHICLE_Search.asp?Car_Make=21&Car_model=63&Car_Type=596&x=37&y=14
  21. E7 people use to as well, but now they just hate on it all. some of there items are good, but 90% of there item's are copied from some other company and they add one item and call it there own
  22. Koyo radiators have had X81 radiators on the shelf for like 10 years, for them to be developing a X83 one say's they have not researched there catalogue
  23. Have any of you used different knuckles or on the ones you purchased and never tried anything else?
  24. Most drift meet's we have string alignment tools and so on, so i guess not much of an issue vs america maybe?

    Fuel cell's

    Ok found the pictures Stock fuel tank, but with dual pump's in Matt L's car My setup, (might still go this route in new build) not sure why i had the smaller cell, the plan was to use it as a surge tank with dual intake pump's then i was like NAH CBF and purchased the in cell surge setup and had a 044 in it. then i sold my Cell and it went into this JZX100 FD car, Power vehicles build for Australia FD, as you can see it is mounted directly over the sub frame if i was to do things again i would probobly do something like this as well. but with the radium intake setup witch is now what all the power vehicles use.
