    I bought someone else's Cressida

    Brian in a Cressida = the universe aligned

    I guess the technical name is "refrigerated compressed air dryer", but refrigerated dryers use a refrigeration compressor and heat exchange to cool the compressed air to 35°F, a temperature where the moisture condenses and is drained off. It's nice that they cool the compressed air too so that you're not "drying" the paint as you spray it. Not that this applies to you in any way, just figured you could nerd out about it like me. lol

    Those PHR lasered pulleys look so aggressive. Nice job scoring an Iwata. Personally for Primer, I use a cheap $20 harbor freight HVLP gun; I just toss the gun away after since primer is annoying to clean and I don't like spraying base and primer out of the same gun. Especially with a nice Iwata you bought. Plus primer sprayed finish doesn't necessarily matter since you're going to wetsand the primer anyway. Just something to think about. Either way, looking good man! I agree it's much easier to see your progress and faults with a solid coat of primer. Luckily for you PNW guys, you guys don't need compressor air refrigerators. Just need a shit ton of water separators. lol. If you don't have a moisture separator at the gun, consider getting one of those disposable ones. They're like $5

    Without actually measuring, the front bar seems to be a 21-22mm bar since it is still thinner than my 25mm rear bar. Yeah idk what Canada is doing with their dollar, but hey at least you have affordable healthcare, amirite?

    It's an old Toyota at least so fuck off.

    If it’s for sail

    Simple Single > complex twins, but let’s act like you knew that since you ran either setup.. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Hell yeah!

    Define "right". I heard you HAVE to completely engineer a new rear end of an x7 for it to drift right... Oh and V8 swap it because a 5M can't spin 195's

    Nice. Sail to me so I can actually make it cool, pls n tanks.

    Jason, I've been using a $20 turbo SW20 18mm front bar in the rear for a while. I came up on this custom 25mm rear bar for free lol. For the front bar, after converting Australia's worthless currency to our clearly more superior dollar, it was ~$325 iirc. Not the cheapest sway bar, but for a custom direct fit piece, I'm not disappointed. Casey, yeah man Mako readily offers Cressida front and rear bar custom options. Shouldn't be much trouble aside from the production time wait.

    A few months ago I picked up a 25mm swaybar that I was told was a front sway bar for an MX83. Come to find out, it is a rear sway bar and it was something @brian probably ordered during an alcohol-driven online shopping spree many moons ago. Being a rear bar that is thicker than the OEM front bar, I knew I wasn't going to install it without beefing up the front bar first. (big bar rear + small bar front = no grip in the rear) I set out to find a company willing to make a custom sway bar for the Cressida and came across Mako in Australia. They'll make any size and color bar you want for a price. I ordered a 27mm front bar for my car and patiently waited. Tony at Mako periodically followed up with me giving me updates and was helpful and responsive. 10/10 customer service. After it took 10 weeks to make, I finally received my custom sway bar from Australia. It arrived with brackets, bushings and grease. After install, I think the wait was worth it considering this was one of the very few direct bolt on parts that did not require me taking out a grinder, cutting wheel, or welder. I am pleased with the fitment and quality so far. I don't really have a good install picture, so take this. I still have to have custom brackets made for the rear bar to be mounted to. First impressions of the front bar are positive. Much less body roll already. I'm excited to report my findings after running both bars and taking it to a track event. Stay tuned.

    I love that turbo. you'll probably see a bit of lag with it on a non-vvti 1J, but not terrible. I agree with Demesio, you're probably shooting yourself in the foot sticking with the V2, but then again, he did suggest Infinity as a replacement... But hey, do what you can within your means, I respect it. Keep the progress up.

    Project IBIS.... AKA the bin chicken JZX81

    Lucky for you that most parts from Aussie MX83 will crossover. Couldn't do that in America with all of our crap being on the opposite side and all. 😕 JDM vehicles in America are such an inconvenience. I can't wait to join the club.

    Also, I can't pass up a good picture.
