    Wastegate location

    Looking at getting a Drewgo 1JZ turbo manifold for next to nothing. But the wastegate flange is up top. If I put my 44mm tial wg is it going to hit the firewall?

    Money pit build

    Welp... I'm still alive sadly. I got a new job in March of 08. Left Acura and decided to make some real money. Fuck flag rate. Even as a master tech for Honda and Acura dealerships still don't want to pay shit, and they wonder why they can't find good techs to stick around. Anywho. Cressida is still 7M sadly. I had saved up a bunch of money from new job. Could've had the swap done by now but I got a double cab Tacoma and sold the Civic Si. And I purchased a house. 3 bed 2 bath 2 car garage (all to myself no kids or gf and/or wife). Things done to the Cressida as of late... replaced rear portion of driveshaft, u-joint fucked up, also wore out the original diff mounts and the car squeeks when I let off the clutch due to rubber mounts being worn out. Have some replacement ones coming from XM. Sold the Work mesh wheels and got some cobra reps. Sprayed peppermint oil in engine compartment since I saw rat footprints in the engine bay last week. Replacing the steering rack soon as well, inner tie rods are worn out and the rack is leaking. 1J still sitting in my garage. Buying the house drained my account along with moving and initial home repairs. Now that I'm settled in my house I can start saving up and continue with my swap.

    WTB: mx83 diff cover & fan shroud

    I have a spare fan shroud but it is broken in half. Could patch together with zip ties or jb weld.

    WTB center driveshaft bearing

    I threw mine away too. Haven’t done my swap yet and won’t for a while. Need the stock one in the meantime. Bought an aftermarket replacement and squeeks like a mf.

    Wizard People, Dear Reader

    This your listing? https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/pts/d/toyota-7m-ge/6553981507.html Hey I might actually see you around more often. I got that gig at Lockheed in Ft. Worth.

    I've already got a Torsen diff and 4.1 gears swapped in thanks to Gordo last summer. Aesthetics over performance? Different strokes for different folks. Self loathing? I've got plenty of that, the Cressida is just the cherry on top. Gay dad? Must've been a diddler.

    I know. I know. But then how are you gonna get with my mom if I'm dead? Gonna be a while before the 1J goes in. Gotta have some sort of backup vehicle for when the 7M blows again.

    I will get pics as soon as it stops raining. How soon do you need it? I am leaving the country for two weeks Thursday. Might be able to ship tomorrow. PM me.

    Well I am officially unemployed at the moment. Quit my job at Acura. Going to Central America for a couple weeks and start my new job when I get back. In the last few weeks I've gotten another daily for my new commute for my new job. A 2004 Honda Civic Si. Came with a total rice package when I got it. eBay build, coilovers, broken and leaking catback, knock off wheels, and billet rear lower control arms. Since I've gotten it I've replaced the catback with an HKS Hi-Power catback, Tein street basis coilovers, 17"Honda Factory Performance wheels. So much for just a "daily driver". Not that anyone cares. As far as the JZ swap. It's going, slowly. Got all new Toyota seals top to bottom. Had the head sent out to get cleaned up, new valve stem seals, etc. New 2JZ water pump swap and modified LS400 fan clutch setup were ordered and still not on yet. ARP head studs were installed when I got the head back. Front sump swapped. Also had the valve covers powder coated. When I took off the turbos I realized that it sucked taking them off and would hate to have to do it all over again. And as it stands I will go with a single turbo setup. Might as well. What's a couple more thousand dollars at this point? Need to decide on which turbo to go with so I can order a manifold and whatnot. Might go with a Borg Warner. IDK what size yet, would like something that doesn't take an eternity to spool up and make boost. Something streetable. Borg Warner probably, seems like the rage nowadays.

    Humans are such easy prey

    The serious accord guys in Cali would go nuts for those wheels. Id rock them on my accord wagon if I still had it.

    Brian - I didn't do much research on the rear z32 caliper conversion. I needed to replace pads and rotors for quite some time so I didn't bother with z32 calipers for the time being.

    Yeah I saw something about the rotors and not having a US equivalent. Not that I can't afford it, I didn't want to go through the trouble of finding the right rotors and what not. Although I might just look into it in the future. I didn't even know you could get shoes relined... I've maybe replaced 4 sets of shoes in my life so far haha

    Nah just using it as a parking brake. No drifting here. Agreed stock calipers are lame. But I thought about z32 tears but I wanted to keep my parking brake.
