  1. So for those who haven't seen my "horrible" intro. I recently traded my sr s13 for a 1j x8. Here's how the coupe sat before I traded. the cressida had some shitty spec works and some gay sc reps so I had him keep the sc reps and put my xxrs on here's how it sat when I first got it I got a oem grill to replace that spray painted peice of shit. Replaced a foggy cracked headlight lens with a fresh one. I also sold off my 18s on the car and picked up some 17s. at this point my plan was still to go with the serial nine type 1 aero With this chassis being so foreign to me I was constantly doing research ( which is how I found jzxp) and was going through different looks and setups with the car. I immediately got hooked on the super low/ small wheel combo. I also noticed no one really does that with the x8s out here. I knew right away I wanted to try this look so I ditched the idea for the type 1 aero and moved my focus towards the type 2 that G is finishing up. I put a deposit on that kit so il get one from the first batch. I was trying to decide between 15s or 16s and I settled on 16s since I was going to have a kit, 15s would just put me too low, there more of a stock body look. I was originally going to save up for these Works. I soon realized how much longer it would take to get the wheels and everything else I need by summer, and itching to drive as bad as I am I couldn't wait. So I ditched the idea for the works, for now that is and decided on my second choice. Good o'l Mickey T's classic II I know what your thinking kinda of gay" right? Now without the dildo center cap bullshit I plan on running 16x10 -27 all around. I also finally got my rocket bunny wing I ordered for my s13 like 3 months prior to trading. I'm glad it took so long now because it's definently going on the cressida with some minor trimming and adjustments I most recently pulled all the dash to redo the wiring underneath, which was about to catch fire if I drove the thing anymore then I did. Redid all the gauge wiring. It looked like it was done by a child and I'm currently working on a fiberglass gauge panel. The gauge panel I also took this opportunity to paint the dash and door cards ect. That navy blue was making want to trash the dash all together. End result came out pretty good. Also picked up a center console off eBay that I painted black The god damn lid didn't come with the center console so luckily in the drunken/ high state I was in I fabbed up an old Fc lid to it. It actually kinda worked The car had no dash lights, tail lights, headlights ect the list goes on so I took off the driver fender to reveal the worst cleanup job of a mutilated fender harness I had ever seen. Sadly I don't have a pic but he basically ripped through every single wire( yes every single wire...) and taped them back up. but he ran the tape inbetween each wire as he taped them all together in a horrible attempt to get them not to short on each other. Which obviously failed so a few fuses and hours worth of soldering time later I have dash lights head and tail lights plate lights. I have everything but turn signals and spedo which I don't really care about. I recently purchased an excessive seat bracket to get rid of the fucked up, home made, off center one that's in there currently. I think that's it for now I'm sick of writing. I want to apologize first hand for the many grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes you probably just read.

    this is frame height with penny for reference. the rear is as low as I can possibly make it and it rakes a hair so I’m going to raise the front 1/4-1/2 inch which will help this situation as well lol. I’m also going to need stiffer springs again.

  12. So Japan finally lit a fire under my girls ass to want start spending more on her is. We got it about a year an a half ago for 4K factory 5 speed 01 vertex rep kit, figs vip arm kit and Megan coils. I dailied it while she learned to drive it since then it's been her daily. How it sat when we got it How it sits now Really not that different haha just cleaned up around the edges got a steering wheel and hub for it got a b&m short shifter and a rear lip and exhaust just drove it. Cut to afte Japan my girl Taylor finally said fuck it and ordered this which came yesterday. Jzx110 1jzvvti got it for 1200 shipped with auto ecu harness and ecu. I know there's a couple guys with 1j is300s on here Austin I think you used a jzx100 though yea? As far as my knowledge on the swap goes I should be good to used my oem IS harness and oem IS ecu with a piggy back, I believe motor mounts will work fine as is on the 1j and also pan should be okay because same subframe as jzx110 yea? Also this is completely funded by my girlfriend and everything bought is explained to her and she makes the decision on styles and what she wants I just do the leg work lol. Also found these fenders she really likes so she's about order these and I'm in debt to her about 700 so I'm going to order our Bn kit. Just gonna do the mbn. Here's the fenders fronts are forsure there 45mm over, rears we're still up in the air I really like them reminds me of jzx100 overs As far as wheels d1 really made me love mono blocks again so I'm thinking some t7rs or cr kiwami she really likes the cr 2 piece though which id never be against but I do want to stay away from dish wheels I feel like there becoming too much the fad nowadays. Maybe mark can chime in with some wiring advice I'm sure you know the jzx110 into the is

    wonderwoman buys an outfit she doesn't fit into

    I know that's the shitty thing, her mom bein there will cut rent down by like $500 which is nice, my girl wants to stick it through for a year at least so we can save and go travel. We're Both on her moms flight benefits so free flights but when she gets mad she threatens to take us off... she's that kind of crazy bitch. But over shit like not putting up blinds or not fixing and puttin up new towel holders, stupid house bullshit like that. It's ridiculous. So wel see. Biggest concern is getting the is drivable right now. I could just put it back to na but i won't have a good spot to do the swap after her mom moves in so I want to try to bust it out in a he 2 months I have

    wonderwoman buys an outfit she doesn't fit into

    Okay stuck in a shitty spot with this car now kind of, our landlord (my girls bitch mom) is coming out to store all her shit in our garage and live with us 2 weeks out of every month, she wants the car stuff out etc. 2j is still in the shell literally balancing ready to be pulled. I just need flywheel, clutch disk, intercooler,piping and bov minus misc. stuff To get the car done I have until June 28th.... I'm fairly sure I have every wiring pinout I need except jzx110/171 pinout for the 3 body plugs off the 1j harness that will plug into the is300 body. Does anyone have this? I know this swap has been done like this so they have to be out there somewhere.

    So i was reading back through the thread and saw where I had a no start issue because of the factory alarm shit, when that happened my car wouldn't crank but it is cranking now. I'm guessing it isn't the issue since it is cranking.

    So all fuses good and no visual hiccups while doing a quick once over I got pissed and left, always so rad when shit just doesn't work for no reason lol. I never wanted to have to dig into wiring on this thing. Last thing I did was wire in gauges nothing I tapped into could have any effect nor would it.

    It's actually goin to my fab buddies here in the next month or so. Doing front and rear bash bars. Gonna clearance up wheel well area. Moving my rack forward. Also going to notch and box my frame rail so I can run exhaust straight out and through my side skirt without sacrificing ground clearance. Then I still need my shorter rear shocks from stance. Then alignment and then il build my fenders and then fit kit, paint ect
