William's mx83

hi guys, sorry i havent posted up any updates about my cressida for a long time. when i first bought it i had cut springs and put some cheap wheels on it. this was how it looked before.

after driving the car for a while.....the head gasket finally went out and i bought a 1jzvvti. my orginal plan was to just run that motor completely stock.

getting the motor in didnt take that long. im still new b when it comes to motor swap so i had a hard time wiring up the motor. i couldnt find that much information on the 1jzvvti. i should have research more before buying the motor but i didnt haha. so after i ended up taking it to Kaizen motorsport. i mess up the wiring pretty bad haha so i went with an aem standalone ecu. i figured since i was running a standalone i might as well upgrade the turbo. i went with the driftmotion upgrade internals for the stock turbo, hks boost actuator, 440 injector which meant i had to change the fuel rail, walboro fuel pump. when i finally got to drive the car after waiting for a year it felt awesome. i love how 1jzvvti feels. i have never been in any turbo car before so i felt like the car running stock and not tune was fast as hell. hahaha i kind of felt like this

sorry guys i know this is a hyundai sonata commerical but thats pretty much how i felt driving the cressida with the 1jz vvti

well this is how the car looks like now. i got rid of the cut springs and replace it with megan coilovers

i took the cressida to a drift event. the motor held up and was strong. however i had an issue with the intercooler coupler popping off. i kept tightening it up but it still pop off for some reason. couldnt figure it out and at the end of the day my clutch started to slip. my dumb ass never open up the transmission to see how bad the clutch was. so i ended up doing double the work. here is pic of the cresssida at adams friday night light in august.

here is a video i found on youtube, one of my friends was driving my car at the time.

 

well after that i replace the stock clutch with action clutch.

when i was taking the transmission apart, i realize my car didnt have a pilot bearing.

 

here is a picture of the stock clutch and how worn out it was

i later found out when putting in the transmission my engine mounts were both broken. which explain why my intercool piping kept popping off.

now the car runs fine and no intercooler piping popping off. i just order some serialnine diff bushing. hopefully it wont take too long to get ship. my diff bushing are pretty much out. hopefully when i have some more money and time, i can get the car dyno and tune.

WOW I really like this!!! I had mb battles on my ,mx83 when i had s14 gay lowering springs on.. it didnt look as good as yours!! It looked like you had to do some major ballpeen on the front fenders though!! ;p

 

Btw what sized tires did you run on the mb's?

well stock injector on the vvti are 370 and i believe they are top feed, and i went with 440 which came off a 2jz which was side feed. i will get some video soon but im still kind of a newb to drifting haha so when i get a little better i will get some footage. as soon as i get the dyno i will be sure to post it up. im on 17x 9.5 +15 all around

^ because vvti are top feed. You have to run a non vvti rail and lower intake.

 

And yeah, with the upgraded turbo and 1 bar I bet it feels nowhere near like a stock one.

might want to add, run a plate or heat shield under the 5 ft long rear bumper so that the bumper doesn't melt away

 

 

 

but i hear you on the first turbo car feeling. i've been in turbo and supercharged cars, but my 1J was the first turbo car that i personally owned, and 280whp feels really fucking fast compared to the stock 7m lol.
