Soooo. Not much has changed. I got rhe clutch done in gfs SC, im stripping my SC, then maybe acquiring a 400. Been broke as fuck. Doing an engine job on an fj62, come to find out the crank was cracked. Finding a decent 3f core has been a nightmare, and ill probably be lucky to get the hours for taking it apart since the whole world is full of Jews. Since that leaves me barely eating, I spent the rest of my money on a hood and bumper, and car is getting some paint probably this week.

i might be paying for you to rape that x8 of more than just the wiper arm. also need a dash trim/key surround panel that's not broken, the radio bezel trim, dunno what else. maybe suspension depending on how the alignment goes.

is there an x8 that hasn't been driven up a curb by the first owners, ruining the tension rods/bushings/brackets and the bumper valence?

So what passed through that ?

Or is that the pink hue I see on turbines that have run too lean/hot ?

I did it when I pulled it. Turbo had about a 1/3" play in/out. It was time to go. . When you let off throttle and were next to the wall on the freeway you could hear til he wheel stop. Steel wheel/shaft is cheap to replace, like $140 or some shit.

hahaha I love the filter off the end of the IC. Similar thing ended up happening to my turbo, you could hear the comp wheel rattle against the housing beside a while. Ended up with 1/2" play and worn comp housing.

I fucking hate this thing right now. Actually went and aired up the tires on my Honda, jump started it, and drove it home. After putting stock suspension up front with the Megan's tomorrow, car will be parked and Honda will be driven. Tired of loud cars. Loud and slow is just too much.

So I dropped the accord on Craigslist, and bought this. Needs a/c clutch, full timing belt service done 3k ago with receipts, needs lca bushings, had a bad sub o2 and a cam sensor wire needed fixing. Cleaned the ever living shit out of it, happened to have poly bushings in storage, so car drove nice and straight after a days work with zero codes ready for inspection. Added late model tails, stock wheels from my 96, fuck you Cressida!

Then I was driving it New Year's Day and I came across some black people in traffic blacking it up, so I jumped it over a median to spite them. This happened.

Steering rack hit a sewer drain and punched a hole in the oil pan. So I proceeded on replacing the entire front and rear subframe and every single suspension component, and rebushed the lca/ucas up front. That finally happened last weekend, still need oil, plug the engine harness back in since I thought I was gonna swap it, once over the front end and she's back.

 

In the mean time, I've been dailying the Cressida. 4 different wheels, 4 different colors, non turbo, no tps, and open down pipe. It runs, it fuels right, so fuck it. Just a hiccup on tip in. Who cares.

So then I decided I was sick of open dp, bought 10ft of 3" pipe for $30, had some left over along with v bands, a flex coupler, and straight piped it. That was this week. Thank god, its actually quiet inside the car. Can have a conversation at normal levels.

And today I'm going to throw a ct15b Austin bought me from a real good dude named frank. Maybe throw a new intercooler on it, then paint, clutch, and one of you fags can buy it
