"The Slacker" Daily pig jzx83...

Recommended Posts

Ok so cut and paste from my intro

 

My name's Mitch. I'm an Aussie and I own a 1JZ R154 1989 Cressida. I knew sweet fuck all about the mechanical side of cars before I started this build.

 

Good project to start off with... blink.gif

 

 

I bought a JZZ30 soarer halfcut that came with the R154 about april/may last year. I intended to put the 1J in my hilux. Turned out to be a fuck around so I looked elsewhere.

 

I've always had a thing for the jzx81 chaser and figured if I cant pick 1 up I'll just build a cressida.

Got a sweet deal on a S1 and S2 cressida for $400 with the intention of making one car out of the two.

I sold the S2 to a mate for $200. So my rolling shell cost me $200

The series 1 had no FAIL-Mge, auto slopbox, tailshaft or diff, also came with a munted cross member thanks to a botched 2j conversion, a digi dash with missing plugs and fucked wiring, 3 flat tires and a fucked rear window seal.

After a shit load of research (i.e. search button) I got started on the swap in what little free time I had.

 

I'm not going to fill this intro with bullshit about me.

You dont care and thats not why this forum is here. Plus, I honestly cbf writing it so here's my cressida...

You can just see the oil filter on the strut tower to the right. Definitely gunna make changing that shit HEAPS easier

 

 

 

6248997621_324390a891_b.jpg

 

Made sure every thread had this shit on it don't want any leaks...

It's a pretty sweet fit and gets a whole lot of air flow unlike my intercooler :(

You wasted your time by adding teflon tape to AN fitting threads. If oil leaks past the taper it will go out the back of the fitting by the hose.

Well my alternator decided to shit itself so a new alternator from Driftmotion arrived this week. Got it to my door for a third of the price toyota quoted me.

Car runs great now. No supercharger noise and no issues with voltage anymore.

Also topped up the gearbox and diff with a full tube each of this.

My mate fabbed up a new airbox for me too.

Then decided the intercooler needed more airflow. So moved my plates and cut away the excess.

Also took a heap of camber out of the front wheels.

They were maxed out, made the car feel like shit. Much happier now.

put regular bulbs in those headlights... blue tinted bulbs are for white tweakers and mexicans.

It's weird they're super white at night which makes it heaps easier to see, my area is pitch black at night so the regular bulbs made shit hard to see.

 

You can tell the difference between passenger side and driver side in the photo.

 

It's only at certain angles you see the blue tint.

 

I agree though the fucking blue tint pisses me off...
