X-81, blue on blue thats fucking ross.

Recommended Posts

Why I paraphrased that fat fuck I don't know. Who cares, heres my build thread.

Seems I managed a pass from this place somehow, so now I may make it my job to be the resident NA 1G fag that keeps pouring money into it and not letting it die.

 

Anyway, My name is Michael. I own a GX81 MARK II sedan, and I like the 1G in it. I'm from Auckland New Zealand (straya 0.5 to most of you) and i make fuck all money to fund it, yet I manage pretty well.

 

I bought it in 2011 completely stock minus some after market 15x6.5s

2011 was a shit year, school meant I did nothing

 

2012 gave me a job, BBS 6.5s, Slit spoiler, Fender mirrors, fanboy phase and nasty low hanging bastard exhausts.

I also bought a W55 and gathered relevant X8 conversion bits.

 

2013...

 

Kei office body adjustable Coilovers (32 way) 12kg/10kg.

 

SSR MK I - 15x7.5J +5 15x8.0J +12

 

A National BF-921

 

glass tint 35% VLT

 

Acquired ITBs, going to get a mani made up some time then thrown in with a LINK ECU and my new cams.

 

More to come...

 

As it stands now, I failed a certification, meaning I have no WOF (warrant of fitness ) meaning this car is illegal as fuck.

To pass the cert, I have to put in some Xcessive Pillowball bushes, get the camber toned down a little, and reduce tyre scrub and poke. I say fuck the last part, its time for 195/45s.

 

and here I am.

 

Plans for the future... TRUST Manitako, octopus legs are the shit for 1Gs its a must if you own a twincam. HKS 2.4 Crank is deep down the line with TODA cams, pistons and cam gears.

 

Vitaloni Californian mirrors VS Fender mirrors is a thing im thinking about now.

Lol. Wheels like that say: "I don't actually have decent brakes, so don't expect this car to be fast."

Single pot Toyota laziness is the coolest way to fail though. Better in this than a Datsun.

Got the front keepers in, here it is at 80 mm at the front, 110 at the rear, tomorrow ill even it out. I would like it at around 70 all round before I go any further. However the exhausts are going to have to be lifted somewhat first.

 

I also bought a set of Vitaloni Californian style mirrors, should look better than fenda mirrors

Fender mirrors are just not doing anything for me.

A design fad that should have been left back in 1982.

But what ever turns you on.......

"also, car is now 60mm from the rails, 70 from the sills. "

 

What's that in English ?

Rails? (like in train rails?)

Sills? (like in window sills?)

Sorry, no speak New Zealish........

On line translator just says 'error'.

Sills

Rails... e.g Chassis rails.

 

they are the lowest structural point in the car, referred to as the frame when "laying frame"

Fender mirrors are gone now, Vitaloni Californian style mirrors are on.

The rear has its license plate relocated too.

 

Next is getting this W55 in the car, but before I do I wil source a new Pressure plate for it.

Ordered some Yanack rear camber arms as I found they were cheaper for me than getting S9 or Xcessive.

What did you get the Yanacks for ?

Seen a set of used fronts in Japan for stupid high $$, like 30,000 Yen.

I have a set already, but I didn't pay that much for them.

Through RHD-Japan?

But yeah, sounds about right.

I had a new set of rears (sold them a while back), but what I didn't like about them, or the fronts was they were not boxed.

So I made my own tube rear arms, and boxed my fronts.

I dont really want to deal with RHD Japan at all.

It has been a while, not much has changed though.

 

Still a faggot.

Still 1G powered.

Brakes still cook.

 

Car is now road legal (albeit 30 mm higher than it sits now). I have cleaned it up somewhat and spent literally 98 % of my income on more parts.

 

said parts.

 

Plans now are to get the EX Manifold in and then save for TRD 2 way.

I saw a BLITZ one on YAJ recently, came with an Ancient HKS computer too. Wanted it for the rarity, ignored it for the price
