Worked on steering angle today. Specs are:
X7 rack, X7 inner tie rods, XM long heim outers, extended LCA's 1.5". Stock knuckles. It stops when the outer tie rod hits the control arm. If I notched it I believe it would over center unless I moved the rack forward

You have the worst luck with crack pulleys.

Looks good man. Can't wait to hear how you like it.

Alright thanks Whoremouth. I got another stock one until I can afford a fluidampr. Did a test drift on a roundabout and steering feels solid. Rack is much faster. Aligned an 1/8" toe out and 5 degrees camber up front. Front grip is good

Better front grip than before, or the same with better angle?

I can't say for sure until I take a few laps on the track, but I imagine it will be better than ever during drift, the leading tire has a good contact patch instead of positive camber at full lock

So I found something that may be very helpful if you have the typical cracked coils. I was looking at a Hyundai 3.3 v6 out of an 07 santa fe and there they were. Denso brand, same plug as a JZ, almost the same size as a JZ coil. I grabbed them and swapped them in place of my stock coils using the factory brackets with aluminum spacers underneath. Fired right up and ran better than ever. Not even a hint of breakup under any condition. Best part is they are readily available and dirt cheap.

I bought a .83 a/r twin scroll turbine housing for the BW. They have a long exhaust outlet that won't clear JZ valve covers. I chopped that off and welded it back on much shorter. Wastegate opens at 3500 in 4th compared to 4000 with the .88 open housing I had before.

cut the traction control stuff off the TB and had it welded up.

cut the hose barbs off the water neck, drilled and tapped for water temp gauge sensor. Had the other hole welded shut.

I'm planning on running in March.

Hey can you find any legit specs on the hundai packs?

I can't find much online about them.

Keep an eye on the plug color and report back in a few thousand miles. Very curious!

Swapped to 3.91 gears and went drifting. The taller final drive was nice now that I have enough power to pull it.

After the event I cut my knuckles and welded them as short as possible with zero ackerman. I already had an X7 rack and extended LCA's. The steering is gnarly now. Super fast. No wheel I had would clear on the front to full lock. I ended up getting 18x8 +20 with a 10mm spacer. They clear with a 225/40-18 after raising the coilovers and a lot of hammering the arches and rear lip. I'll get some pics up later.

Not yet! The wheel poke and ride height are pretty ugly, but I don't care. I went drifting in the mountains and never found full lock :)

Finally dyno numbers to be proud of.

466whp 457wtq at 18psi. Not bad for such a basic setup:

180k 2JZGE shortblock
1JZ head
BW S363
BCC on the stock ecu
Aristo 440cc

Driveability is great, and it hasn't blown up yet. :)
