    Mint MX83 Coils & Wheels

    really, if you want to drive it, drop in an NA2J, run it on 7M electronics, sell the coilovers, and get some stock suspension with S14 lowering springs. then kit it.

    If you are having an issue with bushings or ANY Xcessive part get in touch with Xcessive directly. Rich stands behind and warranties his parts. You guys know this.

    Way too much fun to stop.

    Ok so Ive never put together a build thread so bear withh me. Here is what I have done withh the cressida so far. Picked this thing up for $1000 DD over a year ago withh 210k on the clock and SUPRISE the motor blew. Before it did I was able to have a bunch of fun in it during a snowstorm and was hooked withh the X-chassis. After the HG went I had to get on the road quickly. My then-girlfriend / now-fiance dropped a check for a replacement motor when I didnt have the money so she wouldnt let me say no. Its still a 7MGE but also has a 3 year warranty less than 60K on it a year later. For reference, here is the car, stock everything and dirty as shit after a drive through my old stomping grounds. <img src="http://a858.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/105/l_0498e35cb2e79839868a7625cdd5d279.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /> the stomping grounds <a href="http://www.ziptied.com/Coppermine/albums/userpics/10225/P1000395.JPG" target="_blank">http://www.ziptied.com/Coppermine/albums/u...25/P1000395.JPG</a> Didnt get progress pix, but have a shitty cell "after" picture of the Tein S-tech springs. Looks great withh the Myspace viewing angle... any lower though and there is still a big gap :? <a href="http://a586.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/44/l_984866a3584770735cb94c4e1e2fcc91.jpg" target="_blank">http://a586.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/image...c4e1e2fcc91.jpg</a> Huge thanks Matt for the spare cressida diff/suspension and Mark for installing the Supra internals for me. When he was finished Mark signed PM Spec! on the housing. I got bored at work and decided to make it more obvious and blue <a href="http://a131.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/56/l_719f008ca1bbab1742ae9b24da0a7f62.jpg" target="_blank">http://a131.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/image...b24da0a7f62.jpg</a> yeah I painted the ENTIRE diff blue... I was really bored. The one I pulled out is gonna get welded as a spare when I need.. thinking yellow putting it in the car. <img src="http://a391.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/70/l_26ae5029be5451b9236addb67cfdeb1e.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /> <img src="http://a5.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/49/l_3956db9f76c73c51ef03fd42773daefc.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /> Fast forward a little, I picked up some white Advan AVS 17x8 +32 all 4 corners Got them withh messed up and curbed lips <img src="http://a948.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/52/l_3cd2e7306e6353185f0dec0c0dff3493.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /> stripped the bead lips and had them polished. Place was fucking awesome, even took out all the curb rash. <img src="http://a703.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/22/l_ad2012879c95b3e495d6b3c29bf3ac2e.jpg" border="0" class="linked-image" /> Big gap still, but looks, rides and feels a lot better than stock. <img src="http://www.ziptied.com/Coppermine/albums/userpics/10225/wheels.JPG" border="0" class="linked-image" /> <img src="http://www.ziptied.com/Coppermine/albums/userpics/10225/good_pic.JPG" border="0" class="linked-image" /> So far the car has: earlier model X8 grill Tein S-tech springs PM-Spec Supra LSD: custom smurf blue withh "MS_CHILLER" font (aaw yeah) Advan AVS: 17x8 +32 not much but its a start. heading to a junkyard this weeked to pull suspension parts off a crashed X8. thinking i can fab some custom arms withh heims and swedge tubes. Looking for a MR2 swaybar as well. 5-speed and 1jz are next on the list as well as coilovers. But I have to face reality. Im getting married soon and my cash flow isnt really "flowing" so this is gonna be a slow build. Here is how it sets now, next to its older, cooler brother. <img src="http://www.ziptied.com/Coppermine/albums/userpics/10225/jzx_03.JPG" border="0" class="linked-image" />

    Way too much fun to stop.

    I had a lot of fun despite not getting to run that much. Apparently the smoke coming from my hood was pretty obvious, there were a few times I came back to the grid and people asked if I needed a push. Despite everything, the car made it back to the shop. It left a trail of smoke from Canby to Portland but it made it. I had some good tandems too. My favorite was with Ian Fornier and his supercharged VK56 R32. It was 4 door supercharged V8 Toyota with 4 door supercharged V8 Nissan and he was so close he was in my blind spot the entire time. It was a good day.

    Way too much fun to stop.

    Killed my motor yesterday but had fun doing it. Its smoking out the oil catch can like a train and my warm idle oil pressure is about 18psi. I think its time to actually rebuild one of my UZs rather than just throwing in another junkyard block. also made it into a short clip here: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1466045253684885

    You know I will help build this, but I'm just gonna put this here. also, next time you're at the shop. Remind me to test fit the lip I got for my X3 on your car.
