  1. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    Cressida Sold Gs300 Sold Jzx90 Sold Bought a house. 7 yrs after starting this thread and the s13 is done. It's been good.
  2. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    Turns out the issue was the previous builder had the clearances in the head wrong. Car is up and running now at 277kw. First tune it was up around 320kw, but after all this drama Im hoping with lower power it will last longer. So that has brought this to a close. 2jz Cressida is also done, just waiting on some body repairs from a track day earlier on: The GS turbo conversion and x81 havent progressed much, parts pile is building and hoping to tackle the 81 next: We went to Japan and brought this back to AUS, currently in QLD where we are going to meet it for QR Matsuri: Japan Video of what we got up to there: https://vimeo.com/132186925 I don't come on here anymore, I just hate coming across build threads which are left open ended. If anyone is still interested you can follow progress here: http://secretdrift.c...c=48613&page=18
  3. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    I wish I had amazing updates. But nah. I think we fixed the issues we had been having with this s13. Replaced the loom with a new one from wiring specialties and the car starts now but shuts off after a few seconds. It starts straight away and idles smoothly. Compared to before where it struggled to start, had a horrible miss and would just backfire and die. Went from HKS fuel rail/ 800cc sard to stock and nismo 740cc. Taking it to a tuner to have a look tomorrow. Also got arc coilpack cover for some paperweight bling Ordered the XM catalogue for the cressida which we're in the middle of installing now. Cressida is getting diff welded, wired, new clutch installed next week and then will be ready to be tuned. No pictures of this car yet. Will post some once the panasports are on. GS is booked in to get the turbo engine and manual conversion installed come October. I can't remember if I posted in here one of the bbs cracked after running over a decent sized pot hole. The council have paid for a new set of bbs which are waiting to be painted metallic silver. (engine for gs on the right) Jzx81 is gathering more dust, once the other three cars are done this car will be the only one being worked on. So it shouldnt take another 4 years. But with out luck.. who knows. So yeah.. nothing has really happened recently.
  4. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    I think it was 1200ish? you get to choose the colour and stuff as well. Yeah 4 cars at the moment, pretty happy at the moment not feeling the needs for any others like i used to. Unless it was 100 mk2. Really lazy with build threads these days. They sort of became depressing once the sr let go.
  5. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    My Sr has been rebuilt and will be back in the s13 over the coming days. Already promised myself if the engine goes again im getting a 1j in there or buying 100 mk2. x81 has had a bit of progress bought a 2-way and just cams and timing belt finally installed.. still deciding what to do about the wiring; Needed a fuel rail, so it was then decided a plenum was needed as well... just because. Apparently the Greddy ones are rubbish and JUN ones run upwards of 4k, a deposit was put down this week to get one made. I decided it looks awesome and buying one for the GS300 2j as well. I've started looking for parts for the GS, mainly a decent lip kit which is proving hard to find. So i bought some weather shields while I be indecisive about the other stuff. Definitely going to paint the bbs another colour. The jx90 water pump is gone, but the e-manage turned up this week so we will get that fixed up and tuned. I want to keep it twin turbo, but cheap turbo kits keep popping up. Broke.
  6. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    Sitting on panasports, engine is being torn down due to low compression. i cant remember if i updated this thread with the new addition to the family. 2jz jx90, now on regas though.
  7. True, Rota/ steelies are also in 95% of the posts in here from the last 10mths just made me depressed
  8. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    ^keen to see what they go for in case i want to sell mine
  9. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    Haha yeah, if i run the regas it would be direct copy of yours (Charlie), which i couldn't have. I try set the s13 apart from the millions of others with the few rare bits. THAT being said, Fish bought a pair of 18x9.5+18 for some retarded reason so I could run staggered... but then that means they can't go on this beast Really needed higher offsets.. to much poke imo. Don't want to run -3 camber with 400kw though. I'll work it out..
  10. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    bored at work, bought a set of regas, don't know why. I think i want to run r32 gtrs now.
  11. kris's A31 Cefiro

    f**k the 31. Is N/A going to stop being cool now?
  12. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    This site. I actually couldnt remember my log in but I was talking to someone who said they followed this thread and were dissapointed it is never updated. I'm bored at work and here we are. Bit of progress; Wheels came Centres are currently getting painted in mercury silver. Going to mix and match, turns out the 18x9 +30 somethings fit perfectly on the x81. Will just sit stupidly low. Ended up having to buy a new cooler as the ARC turnflow i had was warped and sat weird. So i bought a ARC FMIC to run in bay under the rad. It makes more sense. It's 3", will have short piping. Compared to the tiny maze like piping needed to run the ARC turnflow. Nom. Also picked up an s14 wing to go on the back of the s13 to hopefully balance out the bomex. Dont have too many pics of the s13 but it should be back home within the week to get wiring, then once the tuner is back from gatebil it will get a retune. Also have been hassling a guy for nearly a year and finally got some rear window inserts. X81 hasnt moved an inch buts its engine bay has gotten prettier, ls2 truck coilpacks, hks timing belt just arrived. Need to take it to a workshop to get the cams and stuff done. Just don't have the right tools in the shed. So it will take about 6mths to get this on a trailer. We work slow. I'm hoping the next post will be of the s13 partaking in drifting duties and the x81 doing something.
  13. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    oh yay, skid rims for the 33, im thinking about entering winton in it...hmm
  14. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    leaning towards gtr wing, gts i think will have the same problem as ca wing i reckon
  15. Cars like Pokemon, Gotta catch em all.

    i got the set fof +22s or the same price as that pair lol Trying to decide what wing to run, with bomex rear aprion, ca wing is too small.
