If you learn from your mistakes, I will soon be a genius.

^people with lack of direct from stacking bad decisions and/or poor life balance call their self indulgent coping mechanisms, hobbies.

 

I have zero intentions of getting wrapped up in cars as a negative to my life as a whole. Getting a new car is an even shittier money pit, if you haven't figured it out yet.

 

And yeah, LSX and 2J life are expensive and unnecessary. No one here is making more than 450whp. If you just love those motors and nothing else, cool. But honestly, they have too much tax associated with them. There's nothing clever left to do with them. They're a fixed game. Everything is off the shelf. And off the shelf prices are always high.

 

There is benefit to tried and true, but it is very much a double edge sword. I'd personally rather end up like Gordon and the 7M, making it better than stock, but I wont hold to 1 motor series for 30 yrs. I'll switch whatever is best.

Poor life choices is why this place exists, so please take your whiny ass somewhere else.

 

I havent had to cope with my terrible life in a while because both cressidas have been running for a good while. I usually drive which ever car has gas. Also, I only clean the air filter and the interior.

Here's something you guys don't see everyday..e8wxUvi.jpg

 

This car has proven to be my favorite by far.. probably because i feel old as fuck, but i'll be damned if new tires and shocks make this this a beautiful cruiser. I'm averaging 27mpgs (maybe 20 if im flooring it all the time) The auto trans is doing fine with a giant trans cooler, I've got a oil filter relocation kit going in next time around because that is the only downfall of this thing.

 

If only i could get what i have in my white cressida, i'd sell it in a minute and keep this red one.

why would i share it on here? you can barely see the intercooler if you look hard enough

 

1JZGTE VVT-i from JZS171, it's auto and has A/C... Only shitty part of the car is that the asshole before me hacked the back deck lid to fit 6X9's

 

 

proper resto-mod once i find a company to make poly diff bushings so the subframe doesnt crack.

Just better diff bushings won't stop that, the sub frame is just weak.

White car still being white car... I'll be getting rid of the cable speedometer and going digital to stop the trans from leaking and get the two step working on the Infinity...

Plug the electric sender into the into the trans, instead of the cable drive ?
Just a guess on my part...

Then there is that cable driven pulse generator that Toyota made, that I have sitting in one of the many boxes of odd-ball stuff I've stashed away over 25 years, that I will probably never use.

And seen an inline pulse generator, but haven't called them yet to see if it's available with metric threads.

Thank you for plans to pull the ear screamer and replace with with the ear pleaser

Didn't know there was a digital version for the R box. We know I'm dumb here. Dunno why thread sealant wouldn't seal the threads unless it was stripped in some regard it dirt on the threads. I need the cable on the trans to connect to my cluster great section

Transmission-Speed-Sensor-Gear-Speedomet

this is it

I always liked keeping track of my mileage but california doesnt give a fuck about old cars, i was trying to log the odometer on this 2007 G35 and the fuckers left it out because it's irrelevant... so fuck it.

 

the digital sender will go to the ecu and feed it to the AEMnet gauge... i'm so tempted to buy the CD5 

 

 

I sold my corolla and used half of that to buy the new ride... pretty comfy deal

it was a bit of a shit show because i bought the swap 4 years ago and finally drove it only to find that 3rd gear was shit, so i bought a whole other beams swap and changed out the trans.. good as new and ready for the new owner

Didn't it come on some tripod r154s? I swear @vampirebeats swap came with electric sender, I'd be more curious about the cluster side

I have a jzx100 soarer trans, i retrofitted the mk3 shifter to fit my car... its not the prettiest deal but it works..

 

THE CLUSTER WILL NOT WORK WITHOUT THE CABLE, the AEM gauge will show my speed... again, unless i buy the cluster ;)

Ah ya, the more I see the AEM cluster the more I like it, but I'm too gay for the x7 digi cluster.

Maybe hit up @vampirebeats I think he did the same thing you did, I remember him having to whip up a little bracket to hold the mechanical mk3 speed sensor but i don't think his was leaking

The speedo cables don't seal where they screw on, but inside the housing that holds the gear & shaft, it has a little shaft seal, and on the OD where the O-ring is.

the car has been this way for 4 years, it recently decided to drip like a single drop a week (from the o-ring in the cable)... I'm just doing the swap for the ecu to have a speed signal and two step to break more shit.

it was just a statement, there's no rocket science behind it. @WhoreMouth_Jr both gears are interchangeable and are held the same way, what bracket would you be talking about

IIRC the sensors housings themselves where sligthly different.  He also had the fancy syncro one which he converted from electric to mechanical output.  Looking back it looks like he bought a new one or something though:

he's not using that trans anymore though so maybe he would sell the sensor unless you set on going electronic
