    For Sale: WB Sport JZX81/GX81 Grill

    Gordo, I had a thought in the back of my head that this wouldn't fit, but I didn't listen to it. I read the bumper swap thread a long time ago and vaguely recalled what front end components could be swapped, but I ignored my intuition and bought this thing anyway. Oh well. If no one buys it, I have it if I ever want to use it.
  2. I was lazy and didn't do my research when I bought this. Will fit a GX81/JZX81, not an MX83 (unless you buy a bunch of other front end parts to complete the swap) The thing is in flawless shape, but I have no use for it. It will come in the original box along with all included hardware necessary for mounting. PM me for pricing.

    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    Yeah man. I'm living a pretty easy, unburdened debt free life, but for some reason life is boring sometimes, even with hobbies. Work my 9-5 every day and that's about it. Lots of free time, so i guess I shouldn't complain. Dating gets kind of old and unpromising after a while. I know only one girl who loves cars and doesn't want kids, and she's taken. Life is weird man. I guess I'll buy a saxophone so I can slay some middle aged poon since I have nothing better to do

    Bought a Mark II JZX81

    That feel when I'm 26 and have no girlfriend, wife or kids. I would have money in my pocket, but I spend it all on my dumb cars and motorcycles. Most girls I've dated have a problem with my car and motorcycle hobby/want kids. Don't want kids and I hope I can find a girl someday that is cool with my hobbies. Until then? feelslonelyman

    Team Running Again Mostly version x.7

    Tying in the stock voltage sense wiring isn't sufficient as far as I know. If your battery was in the stock location, it should be fine. But if yours is in the trunk now, it's definitely too far away. This guide breaks it down into more detail: http://wilbo666.pbworks.com/w/page/39441708/Toyota Alternators

    I like that boost knob, that's swag level major. Glad you like the lights man! Did you tie in your voltage sense wire from your alternator to right next to the battery? Could still be having that voltage drop from having it tied into a power wire that is too far from your battery

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Apparently we're idiots for wanting to know what's going on with our cars, interesting. Yeah, those kits are for standalone guys only

    My coworker said he used Audi B7 A4 2.0 4 banger Bosch knock sensors. They have a kit from ECU master that will allow you to read knock more accurately when you have a higher horsepower engine. They use these sensors on a bunch of stuff. Buy two of these: https://ecumasterusa.com/collections/engine-management-sensors/products/whp-wideband-knock-sensor-kit?variant=8318137991229

    Yep, this was a big racket for me too. Bought the reader, it would connect with my ECU and recognize the available parameters like fuel, knock, 02 etc but it would never provide any data.

    Curse of the Cressida

    Agree with what Zach said above. I ran 1/0 from my trunk all the way to my starter, and yeah, it's a little overkill. Could probably get away with 2 gauge.

    Hah your vacuum line routing isn't nearly as bad as other builds I've seen before. I have a few coworkers with 2J swapped cars. One of them said his knock sensors were doing something similar, and he swapped his to something else... I think they were some OEM sensor off of some other Japanese car, or maybe even a BMW. When I get around to it, I'll ask him what he replaced them with. Another coworker said he has never had that problem with his 2J and neither has any of his 2J buddies.

    Sleeper MX83 build

    Funny you mention it, I bought two backshells that match, but they only thread on one turn or so before they start to pull at the rubber grommet. Milspecwiring.com doesn't sell the connector backshell with the 90 degree strain relief, so I'm stuck without. However, I have enough slack in my wires, so I should be able to form the wires in a way to avoid any stress. Haha Zack, it's not just you, or just people on this forum. I see vacuum lines, oil lines etc. strewn all over the engine bay from fuccboi YouTubers, in car build articles, you name it. Don't feel bad lol

    Sleeper MX83 build

    Finished pinning the connectors. Everything aside from the fat starter wire goes through these things. Happy with how they turned out. Crappily sitting against the firewall after being plugged in Going hunting for the rest of the weekend. I'll finish the socket side in the next few days hopefully.

    I'm not even crapping on anyone in particular, it's just that I see people routing vacuum lines all sloppylike over the valve cover, or power steering lines all over the place, etc. Just tuck shit and fiberglass sleeve it for god sakes.
