    X-81, blue on blue thats fucking ross.

    I should've anticipated someone would mention the persistent use of ancient tech. The F-Con was put in the car in the late 00s by a Japanese tuner based in NZ. He ofc had a hardon for HKS shit resulting in F-Con spam across customer cars. It would be better with the Valcon module, but I agree that playing stupid games and trying to 'collect em all' just to make it competitive with the shittiest modern standalone is smooth-brain shit. Yes, the F-Con is rubbish features wise and I need it gone. I looked at Link Kurofune as a quick and easy remedy to the F-Con as its straight plug into the loom, however it doesn't offer VVT-i mapping from what I've found. Solution is replacement modern standalone (as you said). It will happen at one point, but a running (legal) car feels like a rarity in my life and for now, I'm just riding the good times. Lmao I'm not even a zoomer, plus its not a gaudy enough colour with tilty 19s jammed up in the guards to be peak zoomermobile.

    Gonna make it a habit to keep up with the annual updates tbh. Its been a while, tl;dr I picked up another verossa. Why? -Factory manual -T&E aero on it -F-Con V pro, EVC V, / 0.82 TA3410 -80,000 kms -JZA80 4 pots Front. TRD stabilisers, coilovers and other shit Verossas are not popular here so of course the previous owner took a hit on it, oh well. I've known of this car since at least 2009, it used to live in Auckland but fell off the radar for a while. It comes up on a local auction site for 30k a few years back and then disappears. Came back up in 2017 I think and sat there for sale until 10/18 which is when I got it. So until the other verossa sells, I have two (gross). It was a good opportunity because I was able to move everything I've bought over to it and have a fairly complete car. Eurolines, Ganadors, Recaros, Gara, Premium JP throttle, Titan exhaust, etc etc. I've put some Bosch EV14s in it and had it tuned. Makes fuck all power (330 atwhp/ 17psi) which I blame on the F Cons lack of VVT-i map without a valcon. Outside of swapping in a GX110 EMV dash loom to get a a screen in the car, I've done little to it. It badly needs a 2-way as I'm already over the torsen and I need to get this Ali Titan muffler put on. Straight 3" Ti is ok, but just a lil too fucky. The day I picked it up to drive 600 kms home How I had it for a little while (with all my parts on it) How it sits now Loom out to get new EMV loom in (with TRC, ETCS snow buttons sub-loomed back in). Learnt a lot during that swap since the loom came from a GX110 and went into a 5MT car. How the interior is now (complete) I want to get covers made for the SR3s and some other trivial shit, otherwise I'm happy with it. As i swapped in the DVD player and tuner associated with the EMV, I used a VTR cable to HDMI which hooks into my phone. Tl;dr can play music through the factory EMV and retain OEM headunit. Complicated but it works well. Unfortunate proof that I'm now burdened with two of these things. Selling these is the worst and I hate it. JZX people don't enjoy verossa company. Either that or the sticker tune is too cringe. I think the VIP people let me park there because it makes their cars look better in comparison. I can hang with 17 Crowns tho which is cool Managed to snap a photo with Caldine's Verossa. He has a thread on here somewhere. Beast of a car, think he mentioned its 3.0 and in the realm of 500 kw apparently. Makes my shit feel busted Overall though, I am enjoying the car. I'll have more means soon to do more to it (particularly suspension) which is cool. Its not far from the end goal now. Sadly its a non-sunroof car so at one point after 2021, it would be ideal to import a 5MT sunroof EMV VR25 and move everything over. Yeah I'll be stuck with 3 of these by then, but oh well. Pretty close now..

    came in a container, won the pipe for $32 NZD, total landed cost $200 NZD. Still cheaper than a meter of 80 mm Ti tube which is alright

    Side steps on, T&E helps this car a lot.. Front will change drastically too (and the grille) Will get the T&E Ti exhaust fixed too, has some holes in it but at 2500 JPY or something, it's fine.

    Small-ish update. Apexi AVC-R put in, deleted J-pipe for turbo-dort (kinda lame), some ricey flashing lights and a pair of SR3 Lemans. Certification is done as of last week so I can go through inspection with airbag delete and adjustable suspension. Also put some 18 x 9/10" Koenigs on it for the mean time, not sure I like the look though. And finally, I bought another car.. Missed my gold MX83 BADLY and have kinda wanted a shitty old car again, odd how that happens even after I get something 1J, new and reliable... X8s are being taxed to shit here due to popularity and there is an uptake of retards buying them / sending them to an early grave.. So no thanks. I grabbed this for $500 bucs and it just needed a windscreen. The bundys who owned it said they couldn't find one ( I believe them, they were 300 km from Wellington and 500 km from Auckland). I called NZ's largest Glass supplier and they have multiple in stock for $390.00 fitted. Too easy then, old cruising boaty hardtop to enjoy while I decide where to take this Verossa. Will update next week as I have a Legerfort (T&E) full Titan exhaust for the Verossa and a pair of T&E side steps arriving via container. Should be sweet..

Both of you let me know via here or PM if you want the bits, I'll go back tomorrow and snag
  14. Do you lot need anything from this? I will strip bits and forward to you for reasonable prices. I go back to uni next week so have plenty of time to strip, package and send. I'm well accustomed to stripping bits, shipping and packaging so have no issues with helping you out if you need bits.
