    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Oh that was meant for Zack. I thought I saw an MA70 diff earlier in this thread
  2. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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:

    WTB JZ rear sump

    I thought they were still worthless! I gave my last rear sump to the guy who bought my old engine. But I guess it makes sense, considering the amount of JZ's sold with front/mid sumps now in circulation from sedans compared to rear pans from coupes. And every non-Toyota fag wanting to swap their cars with one (my friend included lol)

    Humans are such easy prey

    Thanks for the tip Gordon, I can be a knucklehead using brake cleaner on fucking everything with disregard for what material or finish it is. My front bumper mounting is actually pretty crude and lazy. I only ever had the GX bumper cover and not the bar. I literally just kept cutting the stock Cressida bumper frame until the bumper cover fit over it. It's still in one piece, no foam insert either. The top edge of the cover is just draped over the flange at the top of the bumper frame instead of screwed to it with that flat piece with the studs on it because that rotted and fell apart. I was too lazy to make a new one from scratch so I threw it together like that and never fucked with it further. The only evidence of it sitting too far in is where the grille overhangs it in the center. Screws to the front corners of the fender like stock and lower corners of the bumper have home made brackets connecting to the body similar to stock

    Some of this is just copy-pasted from my intro. About the car: it's the worst X8 ever. Low VIN, high miles. No ABS, no leather, and no a-lot-of-other-things now as well. Abridged list of bullshit I wasted on this car: -Early Z30 1JZ-GTE -Went with a Driftmotion 6262 kit. It's whatever. -440's/SAFC -AEM UEGO -MA70 R154 -XM trans mount -XM single piece driveshaft -XM diff bushings -MA70 3.7 LSD. Ugh. -Mishimoto MA70 radiator -BC coils -Z32 front brakes So first thing's first. This car has a little rust: I'm using V20 Camry replacement dog legs and Ford Crown Victoria outer rocker panels, which aren't nearly tall or wide enough: So I got pissed off and bought IS300 side skirts to cover up this atrocity that should never have been touched except by a forklift on its way to the top of a stack of crushed Chevrolet Caprices. The right side is pretty much finished. Still have to seam seal everything. This is my first time welding anything or making sheet metal templates. I'm not going to show much of the stuff I welded because it's gross. The left side might get done this weekend, but probably not. At this point my car is basically just hopes and dreams scattered across concrete. And that's about it for this year. After this bullshit is done, car is getting stowed before more snow/salt. Clutch is slipping, but that will have to wait until post-tax return.

    ^Ended up getting a Blitz kit because it was a bit cheaper than the Greddy. Similar to the one whoremouth posted above except return type I did originally modify the stock BOV to have a vacuum port at the top of the diaphragm. It worked, but since the spring was so light, the valve was being held open at idle (not a huge deal) and I could hear it slamming shut the minute I touched the throttle or when it would actuate during driving. The stock BOV seems to be very similar in design to the one on the non-VVTi 1JZ, so I imagine that in order for it to function 100% OCD perfect, it would need the vacuum line tee'd off to the bottom port with the "vacuum transmitting valve" found on the twin turbo engine (PN 90925-01059, also found on MR2 Turbo's). But I said fuck it and bought the Super Sound. Breakup under WOT fixed. Replaced disintegrated coil pack connectors and threw some BKR6E at it (probably not necessary) and now it runs perfect. Went to Toyotafest Connecticut with my dude in the Corolla. Though I don't care for accolades and didn't expect one, the awards seemed a bit nepotistic. They could have at least had a Top 5 White Boys category or something

    ^Like the waiting room wall of a children's dental office, except listing the failure's name, date of part out/sale, and total time and money spent between purchasing and aborting.
  16. Fucking love the side profile of this car. I've never been a fan of aero on X8's but this shit just flows with the big fenders

    Unless this is getting turbo/manual swap I don't see the point of this being here. White wheels are for Honda kids. And you're not Kyle.

    Only pointer I have is to get that bed up on a frame. That mattress/box spring on the floor shit is single college girl apartment spec

    Nice, lookin good
  20. I would flat foot the shit out of this car everywhere. Love it. What do you think the curb weight is, close to 3000?

    ^ My wallet says not quite yet lol. Plus this turbo is pretty tight and I haven't had a single puff of smoke from this engine yet. Which I know won't be forever. I'll see what happens with this stock shit Yeah from what I've found, the Blitz, Sard, HKS etc kits are atmospheric and just come with a plate to block off the intake chamber. This is what looks to be the Greddy kit for JZX100: https://www.farpost.ru/vladivostok/auto/gt/blowoff-blouof-bluof-bluoff-blow-off-greddy-type-fv-42499591.html

    Yeah I've been eyeing that thing and it seems pretty retarded. It looks like instead of a conventional BOV with a vacuum actuated top port, boost pressure is ported from the compressor housing to the VSV, then to the bottom of the BOV diaphragm. Looks like the VSV switches to apply pressure to open the valve? If it can work without the VSV I'll do it up. I've been looking at aftermarket recirc BOV kits that use the factory J-pipe intake chamber because I'm gay and like the way it looks. I'm liking the Greddy type FV kit, but I can't find shit for pictures of the 1JZ specific kit anywhere except some random Russian site. Probably back ordered into oblivion too. Edit: so there's that pretty large vent hole around the lower edge of the top of the BOV diaphragm, going to just drill and tap that for a fitting

    Damn, should we be keeping this shit on the down low? I want to still be able to afford one of these in a few years when I want to swap whatever base model right hand drive JZ chassis bullshit car I decide to afflict myself with when it's time to retire this car. But I guess there are already too many other platforms that facilitate enough hand holding and cock suckery to spread the word. I don't get the big deal everyone makes about the electronic throttle. So far it works fine and doesn't feel all that unnatural. Whoremouth youve got one of thems devices in the V8 car? Notice any difference in running quality? The charge pipe was part of a Chinese copy of the Greddy? JZX100 intercooler piping kit. It's actually a cast piece like the original pipe is, except a lot more Chinese
