Unfinished 1JZ X7 Dead Whores Status

Recommended Posts

Guest Rue

Getting the new x7 project started. Going 5 lug to make the front brakes easy. X8 front strut tubes and hubs were donated to me by Gordon. Making my own front spring setup. And machining egr delete plates even though there isn't any performance gains from it.

 

First egr delete plate... 3 plates total are needed.

New spring perches I machined for the HKS springs Gordon gave me...

Found the hub centric ring needed for the z32 rotor today so I'll be ordering those this week and I'll probably be ordering wheels this week too... 17x8 +24 and 17x10 +20. Trying to find time at work to make the upper spring perch and to finish the ncrca's I started about 8 months ago...

Cleaned and bead blasted the upper portion of the intake manifold. Going to be hunting down a non traction control throttle body.

Hub centric rings for the z32 rotors came in today. I've got 2 extras so I may make another set of spacers if someone wants a cheap conversion kit

I have the dimensions saved on my work computer in a CAD file... don't remember what they are right off. What part looks thicker? You just need the ID of the hub ring to match the cressida hub and the OD to match the z32 rotor. Does your ring fit right?

Was considering a test fit this weekend but I think I'm gonna pull the motor out and get everything cleaned up and ready for the 1uz. I need to hit up the wrecking yards to find a dash harness that isn't butchered up.

 

Soooooo... I ordered my wheels a month ago and recieved an email saying that the wheels I ordered were not in stock and would take 30 days to get. I told them that was fine. Called today and they said the wheels still weren't in and they had no eta to give me. Found a place an hour and a half away from me that had 3 wheels in stock and was expecting more within the next couple of weeks. So next week I'm gonna take a trip to the Waco area and pick up some wheels. 17X9 fronts and 17X10 rears.

Not last time I was out there. Need to find one though. Not putting the dash back in until I replace that harness.

Just pulled the 17X10 out of the box and noticed that the backside of the wheel is stamped as a +20 offset...
