[HIZOKU] PIG EYE Streeter

Recommended Posts

So i thought it was time i made a build thread on the project im working on.


Old owners build thread (no pictures showing, Might need access to view)



Not so much a a set goal car, just something all round fun, cool and a little different.

Picked the X3 back in March 2014 from owner Sam


KcxCmqV.jpg

First thing i did was bolt on chin spoiler and some flairs


ARLmQLu.jpg


I then removed them and got over the whole scene kid STANCED bolt on flare look.


During this time i started my project company Ciscokids (Cressida/X Chassis focused parts) bought a bunch of investment properties and shares and really gave up on car's.

so of course the car's came to a halt. So this bring me to to 2015 and as apart of Ciscokids i bring over Tezuka for QR matsuri and meeting the QLD Guy's and the scene there really

re-sparked my interest in car's again. So start sorting my Debt's and paying them off and then decided to propose to GF to find out this will put another year delay on me getting to play with car's


When i got home i went to restore the car to get it back on the road and this happened.

It took a year and a half to find a new rear windscreen. the goal was to then have the car for the wedding but delays at the painter meant i did not get the car back for 7 month's All inside boot painted, door jam's and behind doors painted in Toyota Black 202 the rest will be painted once i have fitted everything and welded up holes

Changed my mind on the direction of the car and decided i wanted something presentable and something i would enjoy for the long haul do a bit of everything in. plus something the wife could drive.


so plan's changed to


2JZGE VVTI

Manual

IRS Swap

Remove Power Steering box


People that know a lot of my builds follow silly themes's so like my other car's this is going Black with Tan trim with a engine theme.

The JZX81 i have is the same Colour combo but with a HKS engine, having always wanted a Trust/Greddy engine i went that route.


So that is when this started

fj7D67v.jpg

6jXshxh.jpg

BJEi92n.jpg


the current parts list for this engine are below.


EFI Hardware Billet ITB Set

EFI Fuel rail

ATI Balancer

Leeson engineering Alternator swap kit

Leeson 2JZ Bolt kit

Tomei Procam's (256/262 combo i think)

Greddy Timing belt

Greddy Cam gear

Greddy Oil Cap

Greddy Pullykit

Greddy Oil filter relocation

Uniflow sock filters (yellow)


Still need to get a couple more item's more so service item's and a Custom equal length exhaust manifold made


Sold off my old Autronic SM4 and purchased a Emtron KV8

mR8PeER.jpg





Cross member swap.


Out with the old

fR6257K.jpg


I have modified a E7 Cross member to fit/work the reason i went this route was i already had AE86 coilovers in the car and wanted to keep the front end as simple as possible, with no power steering box i went with a FLO's quick rack

SAu7hVI.jpg


to get this to work i had to trim it and make it shorter as well as re align the holes tried to use as much of the stock items as i could to make it look like a genuine item

iTe7gpW.jpg

Z5OjvtA.jpg

fIsjvT3.jpg

nC1slp1.jpg

NY7UTug.jpg


LCA lines up dead centre as per the old one, i might need to add MX62 arms for added length but i will have to wait until i get my brakes before i put the front end back in to test/trail

Stranded internet chat, IRS is a bolt in swap no issues. Well as you can see A6/X7 IRS swap is about 660mm short each side


VIWX6HJ.jpg


Anyway fab work to get this fixed, i went with modding the sub frame vs the body to fit this and made a jig to suit. I want to try and use all the standard IRS points in the car Sub frame was put in place, bolted in flat then welded to the box steel so it would not move, then chopped i combined box steal inside the sub frame, and turned two sub frames into one by chopping one as a shell to cover the new box steal internals.

I still need to move the trailing arm/IRS mount's back to the original position but awaiting camber adjustment mounts to be back in stock at raptor racing. had engineer go over it and he is happy to pass it.


Now this car was never built for go fast/drifting so that is why i went this IRS, trying to keep it semi stock looking/feeling.


Problems i have at the moment is handbrake cable mounting points are in the way of the cross member, so i need to move them to suit and work out what i will do in regards to cable's


Parts i still need to buy

RCA's 30mm ish

Big brake kit

Maybe swap bars

New bushes all round

some cool JDM wheels 14's maybe 13's rebarrled to 14's


items i have and yet to fit


TRD style drivers seat,

Alpine speakers (old school JDM things)

Old school Greddy gauges

JDM Gauge Cluster (might mod the digital part of this gauge to have elite gauge fitted internally instead of garages.

doesn't x6 stuff bolt right in? i thought it did because the x3 had irs from the factory in japan.

 

how did the rear window break? that's my biggest fear with my jzx81 being the in states. it will be months/years + thousands to get a replacement here.

 

btw LOVE the itbs.

X6 in aust is solid axle, i have the diagrams in the Japanese manuals and nothing matched up spot on other then X4 but i gave up pretty easy since i had to strole threw every version to find the chassis diagrams and then to compare. i guess the positive is i doubt anyone else in aust will go to this length for a SHIT IRS setup lol.

As for the rear window it is rather funny, So the roof trim i removed from a X3 at the wreckers with a screw driver and nothing else even removed the backwindows without breaking them. went to put the trim in my car being careful as, plastic end of screw driver hit windscreen and it shattered. nothing bad, nothing powerful just seems right angle, right place with right force. fucken sucked.

 

you can get rear windows out of japan but yeah 700+ before shipping and you can only use DHL or TNT for postage. (same case for JZX81's) no replacements in aust

The ITB are a EFI Hardware kit, full billet manifold, a couple issues i have found with them like they are more suited to NON VVTI so a couple tab's in shit places. but nothing you will notice when in the car and also a easy fix to remove tab's but i CBF right now.

Pulled finger out, purchased everything i need to freshen up the engine and install the cam's, cam covers and timing belt cover. Downside is even working for Toyota, the timing belt tensioner is 2 weeks ex japan :(

lloyd's car uses x6 rear suspension but needed mounting points welded in.

 

my x3 wagon had a complete x8 subframe under it for measurement purposes and it wasn't super far off. definitely issues with the stock wide-ass spring clearing the inner fender well and frame rail, but coils would fit with someplace to bolt tophats. not far off from what you'd want to do.

i dont see vvti filter on that list, or the coolant hoses to the oil cooler, or the o rings on the water pump tube (those bit me in the ass on my last build)

YES! I'm excited to follow this. VVT-i 2JZ look so awesome with ITB's. Nice work so far man.

A lot of these things have been done already before engine came out, the VVTI is fine i'm only replacing due to braking the clip :( but coolant hose needs to be customised due to location's of heater tap/core so not a off the shelf item.

Decided to purchase a couple more parts.


Naprec JZ baffled sump

Water coolant neck rotate

Oil Sensor level Delete


Will get pictures when they arrive. Assuming in the next two weeks i will have a lot of items arrive.


Now i just need to decided on what ignition coils to use, Need to fit under cover so that leaves, VR38, Audi R8, Yaris and stock non vvti JZ ones but will need CDI from what i understand to run JZ one's with emtron.

There is another option here in Australia that you can buy that is a little more hardcore and has windage tray and so on. For this little car i dont think it is needed and to be honest i dont think the naprec one is, i just have purchased something for every other part of the car, might as well get something for the sump :P

Still waiting on parts to arrive.


been cold as hell in Melbourne so not much work has taken place. did start bolting up the IRS to see where everything is going to sit, the spring location is a tad out of place, either going to move the spring mount on the arm across or run a rear coil over setup like the two links below. (fits X3 cressida, not sure if it will fit IRS but that is just a bolt hole)

the a6 shock mounting bolt is a tiny thing. m10? iirc it was a 12mm headed bolt i think.

when i did my rear coils on the a6, i made a whole new mounting point on the arm itself...but i also cut a big hole in the old tower to accept a new style...before stance came out with their system. that photo makes the lower pickup really big looking. keep in mind the one direction sweep those a6 arms have, in terms of how this rear suspension attaches

Yeah, to be honest i dont have a real clue how i will do it and i dont think it is ever going to be the perfect scenario. in saying that i will not be taking short cut's but im not going to go in depth to get the geo 100% for grip racing.

 

here is one's suited to X7

https://technotoytuning.com/toyota/mx73/rear-coilover-conversion-mx73-cressida-sedan

 

 

I guess the reason i was looking at AE86 ones was they will bolt in up top no issue's and as you said the bottom can be made to suit the other option is as you said the stance style separate strut to spring and i still might go this way. just then i will need to adjust the springmount to suit a bit better because as you can see it is off.

^^ Stance also has a full coilover rear option if you look at ma61.
https://stance-usa.com/shop/toyota-supra-ma60/

 

I use them on both of x7s I have. One has reinforced lower and upper mounts, the other has nothing reinforced. I think llyod also used similar on his x3 with x7 rear but shot a shock through the shock tower. So maybe reinforcing that is a decent idea.

If you are building for grip you probably should have never used the x7 subframe haha. Although maybe the toe and camber in on compression might help? haha

i got camber correction kit on the way from raptorracing, i know i should not have gone this style IRS it was more trying to keep it all period correct as well and some wank factor in there to fit large semi slicks. the car is not to set blistering time's but something to have a little fun with and let the wife drive. i have the 81's for grip/drift stupid shit

whatever you do end uo doing, it will work and you will have fun with it.

i see no reason to split hairs on a better designed suspension if the driver has no idea what they're doing.

none of us are pro race drivers and if we were, we wouldnt be fucking with old cars trying to make them marginally as good as current cars and tech.

i just enjoy the car, something i built, doing some racing with friends, thats it. I have zero interest in competitions.

i do however love to fuck with people who take these hobbies so serious it hurts, or thinks theyre #1 when theyre #100.

this looks like a fun build my dude

Yeah i dont expect this car to be any quicker then really anything. i just know it will sound nice at high rev's and i know a lot of people have cooler cars out there. i just want to be a tad different and enjoy the car 99% of the time it will be just cruiseing that 1% track day or skid pan day i will never expect it to be in the top 10 lol

All the engine service item's and little upgrades/wank factor items are here. so i can now put the cam's in service the engine and put it all together ready for it to be placed in engine bay.


Decided to go R35 coilpack's 100% over kill but the reason behind it was more based around spares for the JZX81/1JZ. this way i should be able to borrow looms if need be or coils and so on.

So new purchases.


went and purchased the platinum racing products VR38 Coil conversion kit, purchased coil's via work how ever. Also found out 370z and GTR have the same coil it is just the coil tube that is different (removable) so if you want to save money buy the 370 ones as they come in $26 dollars cheaper.

Other items on the way, custom rear bilstein shock's with coilover conversion. based off stock length AE86 with a tad heavier spring 8kg and valving to suit.
