  1. What's up dad fuckers? You've made it this far, you might as well continue reading. This will be my piss poor attempt at a mediocre build thread. Be forewarned, you most likely won't find any groundbreaking discoveries in this thread. This will likely be your run of the mill standard 2JZ-GTE swapped X8. I plan on doing cool shit and tailoring the car to my style, but I won't be doing anything extraordinary such as: 4-link rear end, highest hp Cressida, ultra drift star, chop top, cressi-truck, or any other outlandish idea you can think of. This is not to say you won't find enjoyment from this build thread, because I know I will. Background: My name is Zack, a recent university graduate residing in Arizona. I come from a background heavily consisting of Subarus. My first car was a Subaru STi that I have driven the last 7 years and I still own. I picked up my 1990 Cressida two years ago as a daily driver that I knew I would begin to modify. Subaru parts are very pricey, so I bought the Cressida as a cheaper way to feed my fix for modifying cars. In the 2 years I have owned the Cressida, I have accomplished quite a list of things that I didn't envision doing over this period of time. This was all due to unforeseen circumstances that lead me to forego the aforementioned expenditures. I purchased the Cressida as a rough car that needed TLC, but had plenty of potential, in my eyes. It didn't start, I was told it needed a starter, a clutch, and a battery. I sent the guy the money, he gave me the paperwork and keys, and I had a tow truck arranged to drop the Cressida off at my house.

    The rest of my fuel setup came in the mail. I'll be contacting my tuner to schedule an appointment for tuning. Probably install and tune in a couple weeks when my schedule allows.

    I have Brian's old custom 25mm rear bar that I am contemplating throwing on, but I'd want to get a 26-27mm front bar first. Thick rear with thin front is so off balance. Jordan, try westlakes. They are the cheapest tire on Amazon, but they last foreverrr. They don't chunk unless you're heavy on the hand brake. I guess the only downside is they "dOn'T GEt Sm0AkiE". But if you're looking for best bang for your buck and more seat time, they're awesome. I drive to keep my mind off work and to enjoy what's left of my depreciating 20's, not to make smoke for instagram clout.

    I didn’t like the way it handled with the 10mm. It felt sloppy. The 18mm made a huge difference. It’s snappier, but it grips up

    Some body roll is good for drift as it helps the tires maintain grip and not cause the car to over rotate, but I’m sure you knew all about that too @Gordo huh?

    Because the only body roll in this thread is you Gordo.

    Every picture only shows 2 feet behind the car with a 25% opacity puff of smoke, and he's pro, and he makes more power than I do. I'm just there for a good time. I'm not doing it for FD. Seat time > Smoke. I drove for 5 hours and only used 2 pairs. And yeah, he seems to be trying everything and just different setups altogether. Edit: I just realized this about as gay of an argument as Vape cloud competitions. stfu.

    Yikes, It's almost like you went to the site and posted the only 2 pictures with smoke. lol Yeah our tracks are v nicely prepped tbh. Easy on tires. Look at 90% of the pictures from the event, mayyyybe a handful of pictures there's a good amount of smoke. Not sure when that became a requirement of drifting tho. Lol sounds like some millennial shit. Kyle, actually they both VVT-i 1JZ. Only his s15 is non-VVT-i 2J. PFFFT.

    I was wondering the same thing about Forrest Wang? Where dat smoke? All that angle, but no smoke?

    As Nigel said, there's no provisions in the USDM B-Pillar to mount any of the Canadian spec seat belt system. Sad truths. I'm sure a mounting point could be welded into the pillar, but it would have nowhere near the structural integrity of what it should.

    Pretty sweet deal. GLWS

    I unplugged my autobelts in the B pillar position, but the thing that sucks about them is on low seats, the shoulder belt is basically under your chin lol.

    This also came in the mail. Pretty cool piece that will probably get lost in the engine bay. I'll try to find a creative way to mount it so that it is visible.

    Coverking makes them. Order it through the Mooneyes website and it will come with the embroidered logo. Not much to it lol. Great fit, very inexpensive, quality velour, maximum clout.

    I have probably pretty close to that into mine and I definitely don't hate the car. I have way too much fun driving it.

    I asked the tuner I am going with (Tony @ UMS) which ECU he preferred I go with. I recall he used to SWEAR by AEM, but as of late, he has been pushing Link. He has mentioned that AEM has some bugs they have been trying to fix, but Link is very solid in the options they offer. So I'm going with what he recommends and it just so happens that Xcessive/Link/Panic came up with a basically PnP setup for the 2JZ that fits in the factory ECU box with factory plugs and retains all use of DBW, VVT-i and other things. All while eliminating MAF. Pretty sweet setup. I told my tuner this and he's all on board, so it's cool. I'm running Works Bell hub 522. It's a 45mm boss.

    So my M00NEYES dash mat came in. It's gray velour and it matches the gray velour interior very well. The color photographs pretty weird, but in person it's super cool. Fitment is spot on. Oh, the cat is out the bag. I'm going Link G4+ Extreme. I have also ordered DW1000cc EV14 injectors, DW300+ 340LPH fuel pump, Radium fuel rail, FPR, Fuel Damper and some other supporting mods. I'm not chasing more power, I just want a safer setup that isn't maxing out my IDCs and the ability to be tuned I guess. I'm sure I can easily get 500+, I just want to keep the power I'm at (400-450whp). It's plenty fast as is.

    God Damn Casey, balling out I see! First matching Brides, then full WB setup?! Tax season must've been good to you. lol Yeah Jordan that guy

    Ahhh yes, those are rad! The guy seems really legit and he always posts his customer's reviews and they are all solid. Nice score man, I love the fabric on my Bride Japan.
  22. Damnit Brain, I hate that I casually read your comment as normal 2019 internet commentary and didn't even think twice about it until I saw it was you who commented.
  23. 36mm thick core sounds nice compared to the 48mm thick JZX100 NFLO Koyorad I'm running, but the thing I like about the x100 radiator is, IS300 fans fit on it and the temp switch provision is sweet.

    Thanks for the compliments Casey! Actually I’ve never had 18’s on my car. They’ve all been 17’s. Right now I’m on a 215/45/17 which I have been running for a while. I want to use a 235/40/17, but I can’t seem to find cheap drift tires in that size. Thanks Yosh! I was surprised because normally I don’t care for new wheel styles on old cars. Battleaxe, I totally agree that 18’s help keep the ride height up and normally look better on kitted cars. I do plan to drop the front and extend the LCAs for some more camber and drop the rear slightly. Hopefully that will give me the look and fitment I need to pull off 17’s. If I can pull off 17’s I prefer them over 18’s. I know there are quite a few drift cars in Japan that are kitted and pull off 17’s well. Even A-Bo-Moon and drivers rock 17’s on BN Sport kits and you’d think they were 18’s. I want that. Lol Thanks Nigel! I’m glad it’s not too much from one color palette. Thanks for the advice guys!

    Thanks fellas! I definitely enjoy driving it more than parking it. So I got new wheels. Totally open to opinions. I don't hate it. I don't love it, but I am leaning more towards liking it and think it'll grow on me. Choosing wheel color is difficult on two-tone so I've found. I know 18's "look" better, but I don't like drifting with them on these cars. I did choose 17's to keep it more 90's and with the intent of lowering the car a little more. Idk. One day I'll get this right.
