    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    No shit those are XT7s, I obviously meant the fucking gramlights that were on the car before. Normally that bronze would've went great with either of the two tone colors. But I get it's hard to match painted wheels to the combination of them The car of the people. Beige 1998 Corolla with 250k miles, first gen Mazda3 with tirerack.com winter tire and wheel package in the middle of the summer, Mitsubishi Montero with exactly one side step and two fender flares missing, all mud flaps still attached, etc

    One of the best looking GE's. My dick's getting a bit soft though, going to need a pic of it with headers mocked up

    Hah, my wife is also a Mexico. Also trying to get her out of her Impreza and into the car of her people LOL I completely forgot while posting that your new wheels were chrome. I was thinking more of cookie cutter Weds/VSKF/other gross shit. I might be gay, but if you had the Gram Lights color matched to the lower half of the two tone, that would look cool

    ^I feel like all the creative ones came from here. Everywhere else I look now I just see the same giant aero on melanin enriched chrome wheels. @LUMBERZACK parked up on the front yard like a true Mexican @Jason and thats WITH aero. Without it they look small pulled up alongside a late 90s Accord. Makes you wonder where they managed to cram 3400 lb of dead weight. I always thought the newer JZX cars were a bit bigger because they seemed larger than life online. But an x90 in person is about the size of my Cressida. It's definitely longer, but it almost feels smaller because of the roofline and it isnt shaped like a bar of Irish Spring

    Hahah, I wish. Covered it with gray rustoleum. Thing weighs a motherfucking ton. Perfect match for a 150 lb ft boxer coupe.

    Lol, used your Subaru brain and took a page out of the EJ book with the oil filter orientation. Much less mess than the perpendicular to block shit. To be honest, after working on the newer FA engines, I dont entirely mind their top mount filter. At least theres a small ridge around it to catch any mess.

    Appreciate it guys, it's now a bit less family oriented with one less muffler. But my god does it sound right. Also just threw in a 4.10 carrier from a 2016 FR-S and welded in the missing diff bushing cut out of an IS300 subframe

    Kakimoto muffler. I like the style over the canisters but it's too goddamn quiet, inexplicably so for an 80mm exhaust with straight through mufflers. Going to cut the front muffler off

    Update dump Decided to delete ABS/TRC. I would've kept it if it was just ABS, but the Grande G has ridiculous integrated traction control shit with three separate hydraulic units under the hood. This nonsense has been replaced with a Tilton bias valve so I can pretend like I track my car, with the original lines to the hydraulic units lazily cut and rebent to suit. It's well known by now that Lexus IS/GS front brakes are the same as JZX, but I couldnt find any suitable USDM equivalent for the rears. Grande G has the same front brakes as Tourer V, but the rears are some shitty smaller 10mm thk solid rotors. The pads are the same as 1st gen Avalon but couldnt find anything for rotors. The solution was parked right next to me: USDM X8 rear brakes bolt right up with the only modification being the rotor hub bore, which needs to be opened up to 62.1mm as the Mark II has a step in the hubs where the rotor seats like most Lexus cars. I also didn't leave the front brakes alone. UCF20 front brakes as well as a USDM non-trac master cylinder

    Same Jason. My X8 didn't seem to like having metal fenders so I gave it what it wanted. Biggest regret of that car was not keeping the stock body though. Now I've got multiple sets of wheels/tires with fitments that I cant use on anything else Actually biggest regret is buying the car in the first place.

    Tubing is all 2.5" except for the 2.75" freddy style cast elbow that will be right off the throttle body This tool has to be close to 20 years old now. I forget what he used for the inside roller but it's hand ground and polished to match the shape of the outer one

    I dont like the premade intercooler kits for JZX. The cores are mounted too far forward so you have to cut the fuck out of the bumper frame and lower bumper cover. The piping makes a beeline for the front corner of the engine bay and takes an unnecessarily long detour through the corner of the bumper. Which is understandable given the location of all the stock components (clutch fan blade, air box, side mount IC etc). I wanted a more direct path, which I achieved by cutting up some random Wuhan piping kit for a WRX that looked like it had bends that fit. Which it did. ^my uncle made this pipe flaring tool years ago out of an old AC tensioner bracket I had to go down to an 18x12x3" core and mount it off-center, but it fits cleanly behind the bumper frame and next to the A/C receiver/dryer. In place of the original power steering "cooler" hard line is this one from a Ford Flex? Freestyle? Dont remember. So with that I'm able to keep a relatively original looking bumper with minimal cutting. Except now it will look retarded in an entirely different way with the offset intercooler. Might just black everything out now, or wait until I see what looks like together outside. ^Last heat exchanger I need to mount is the engine oil cooler, which will go where the stock side mount intercooler would've been. Radiator was easy mode. JZX100 Koyo and IS300 dual fan assy was pretty much drop in.

    Yeah, I saw the inside of a later housing and it's completely different. The shift rail and detent isn't even on the same side of the trans What was tripping me up was the JZX90 parts diagrams I was looking at for the shift lever and retainer group only show images for tripod shifters for all years of X9, where in reality I'm pretty sure they had the dog leg shifter like early Z30 until sometime in 1994 when the r154 was updated. Not that it matters to me at this point, I already slapped mine back together and it's under my car using an Xcessive MX83 crossmember redrilled for the X90 bolt pattern and 1/4" plate spacers to make up for the increased height of the MA70 trans mount. My X9 only uses four M8 x 1.25 fasteners to attach the crossmember to the body, which is a bit disconcerting...
