    New Look / Same Poor Taste

    Couldn't see myself having a build thread anywhere but here. I was hoping this place would get a second wind after enough of the imported cars came to the US. Not that Canadians haven't already been doing what I'm doing on here for the past 10+ years already. But I also dont see JZXP material in the typical clientele overpaying for these cars fresh off the boat from an importer either, this isn't exactly the most lucrative platform for them for attention whoring.

    MA70 lip from eBay, I think it's a bomex rep or something like that

    Stock flywheel, check. Haven't had a 2 piece driveshaft since it was in my Supra, but who knows how long it's been like that

    Organ donor. Started on the wiring. The X110 harness is way too short, so I decided to use the original GE harness as a base and rework it into an X100 configuration since it's already the correct length and has the right ECU and body connectors. The GE harness has sequential injection, as well as half of the other connectors I need already in the correct place. I trimmed the fat and removed all trac and auto trans circuits, while adding cam sensor, crank sensor, OCV, 4 wire o2, and the entire primary ignition circuit from the X110 harness (half of which I could just repin from the distributor ignition module). Got my penis enlarged: Would've had a reassembled transmission by now, but I noticed this nice crack through the extension housing: My trans had been leaking slowly for ages, even after a couple reseals, so I'm thinking this might be the cause. Unless I'm the world's worst FIPG sheet cake artist. Anyone with a junk R154 willing to sell me their extension housing? I'm looking for either a late non-tripod with the extra tapped holes for the newer style trans mount, or maybe an early tripod (pre-95?) which I think will fit over my mk3 internals.

    Saw a similar non-DBW VVTi engine last time I was at an importer. I thought it could've been from a Crown but it definitely didn't have that wtf manifold. Was probably JZX101

    The GE is being saved for a rainy day. Yours truly aint gon toss a perfectly good 2J. Maybe another 1.5 in the future. Right now it's swap complete engine set from the other car over to this one. I don't care to spend the money and effort adapting a Solstice trans. It's not appealing enough to me, especially when I already have a 154. I don't like the shitty gear ratios meant for the gutless four cylinders they were sold behind, and the 3.75 1st gear for people who can't drive manual. And like the CD009, initial buy-in cost of the box is low, sure, but after you're done wasting money adapting it (and hacking your car apart in the case of the nissan trans) you're at or exceeding an R box anyway. Come to think of it, I've had this same R154 for 12+ years and it's the sole surviving part I have from my MA70. As it should be. I'll continue to reuse it until I can't anymore. That being said, I will need to open it up again to extend the shifter for the x90. Or get a tripod shifter and housing for it, if that's even possible; I understand the shaft bearings are different sizes. I'll figure it out once I have everything apart in January

    Oh yeah it's like that stock. I guess they determined three mount points were adequate for the non turbo. They just used the same rear diff cover and subframe minus the bushing sleeve welded to it

    Center caps are blank. They have the Nissan hub bore dia. These wheels are old and gross and the chrome is flaking off all over. I'm pretty sure they're reps; I was able to clean off the back of one of the spokes enough to find 17x8 +30. Driveshaft lol: Also, having a base 3.0L car means I get the same diff and axles as Tourer V. Should be pretty cheap and easy to shove an FR-S Torsen up in there. Only difference is the N/A car is minus one mount so I'm going to want to do that as well:

    Basically just drove it this year. It may have ended up being my last year in the Cressida because I just bought this: The trunk is lying. It's a JZX91 Grande G 2JZ auto: What it came with: Old HKS Hipermax LS+ R33 rep? wheels Hippo Sleek front lip X100 Tourer front seats Mark II rear seat doily (fuck yes) cracked windshield (fuck) two spare hoods, spare trunk lid, spare OEM spoiler ruined driveshaft center support bushing stuffed with windshield urethane (didn't work) Plan is to put the 110 engine and R154 from the Cressida in it while converting the intake manifold, harness and ECU to JZX100, which should be able to run A/C, fuel pump control unit, etc. like stock. I've already got the proper center console, shifter garnish, manual pedal set and clutch master, but I need to cool it with the parts from now until after the holiday season.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Oh that was meant for Zack. I thought I saw an MA70 diff earlier in this thread
  11. I kind of just cut to suit and pressed the joint in and out until I had the height where I could fully seat the snap ring. I thought I had written it down somewhere but I think it was 1.2mm or something

    Don't you have that stupid MA70 diff carrier conversion? Mine vibrated like a motherfucker with that and the XM trans mount until I ditched them for stock shit

    That asshole bout to get 100% wear
  14. Yeah I didn't trust myself enough to fuck with the joints themselves with handheld tools, so I just used a small diameter friction disk flat against the surface of the arm
  15. Confirmed the 2005-2015 Tacoma front upper ball joint fits. I picked up both joints and the 4Runner body diameter and taper is incorrect. The Tacoma joint has the right taper as well as the correct 43.8mm diameter to allow a press fit into the X8 arms. The height of the snap ring groove is slightly less on the Tacoma joint, so I needed to cut the surface on the Cressida arm down in order for the snap ring to seat:
