Tired of lurking

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you guys laid down the law to prevent lurking. It prompted me to contribute.

 

Here is my project:

'89 X8 clean car from CA

1UZ shortblock from '93 SC400

3UZ cylinder heads from Tundra

TRD Supercharger

R154 from '89 Supra

TTC Trans adaptor

etc...

 

Obviously the motor isn't in yet but it will happen soon.

 

Thanks

The motor doesn't have traction control. Most early 1UZs in the states had TRAC (NE of the US atleast). The motors had two butterflys in the TBody. The outer butterfly was controled by the ecu and closed when the tires lost traction. The inner butterfly operated via the gas pedal.

 

Trac just adds complexity to the wiring. I will be using the factory computer. It's a POS cressida, no need...

 

I just want to get the bitch sideways.

Most likely T3 at some point.

 

I'll cut springs first and install nascar front sway bar on the rear. Maybe S13 shit. The motor swap is enough right now. The trd supercharger is a real pain in the process.

 

3UZs are drive by wire... No IAC. This is going to be an issue when using the OEM ecu. I may install megasquirt.

 

Day by day my timeline is getting pushed back.

 

Anyone know an honest shop in PA/NJ/NY looking to sponsor? I'm not looking for free parts, just some labor.

 

By the way, am I welcome in your community? By whip is a pipe dream now but soon it'll be seriously representing old skool Toyotas everywhere..

 

Thank

JJB

rich: its kinda far from easton to eagle. easton is probably closer to the shop where you did the SR swap at.

 

my question is this: what are you gonna do about the hood clearance?!
