waiting to sell his GS and pick up a new motor - read NOT M SERIES - locally. the car actually made the drive home at freeway speeds but being stuck behind him pouring smoke for 1.5 hours sucked. then we got stuck in traffic and some cholo-ass car club made up of escalades with lambo doors started fucking everyone over. each one of the 8 motherfuckers packed into each truck had the same fucking haircut and earring combo and they were blasting accordion music while they weaved in and out of traffic, drove over curbs and held up lines of up to 100 cars so they could let their 20 friends merge late. fuck i hate dallas.

I'm sourcing a vvti 1j. But I'm going to go ahead and do the 5-speed swap as soon as I have all of the parts. Selling my GS300 to pay for the 1j

I like 1j vvti, but you could totally have it running this weekend if you threw the GS engine in it

Rota Shakotans (Hayashi Street Replicas). Probably the best knock off since the Konig Rewinds hella years ago.

 

yeah man get some legit suspension, lower the car about a foot, and you'll definitely consider rocking those wheels.

Nope... you can get them in 15X9 all the way around. I bought them for my corolla and didn't like the fitment of the 15X9 on the front. I've got a set of Work Equip 03's in the same width and offset going on my corolla.

You really need to keep these on the car, but it needs to be dropped hard to pull off the look. You'll see guys running larger wheels on an x7 but 15's look the best.

Alright... I ended up buying the complete rear brake assemblies from an x7 in the wrecking yard after finding that mine were mostly rust so now I have brakes. The following weekend I ditched the auto and went w58. And now that I can drive the car it's time to sell the gs300 and buy a motor.

 

W58 after a trip through the parts washer

Looks good on those 17's but it better have a 1j or 2j swap. haha

 

After seeing this car on Rota Shakotans, it makes me want an x7 on the same wheels as a daily driver even more!
