Adjustable Cam Gears
TRD Plugs and Wires
Illegal Garage Clutch
(free T50 Tranny w/ Copper Cusco Shifter Bushing)
Has a blown headgasket.
Im gonna clean it up and organize everything. Dump the Oil, and Coolant in the block And degrease the **** out of the outside. Once I get it cleaned up, ill start tearing it up just so I get less dirty while doing so. I already put the Headers on my current motor, I still needa put the Intake and Wireset on my current motor and rock em till I get the motor built. When I took off the clutch I found out it was pretty much toast. Ill have to get a new one.
Eight Six Day! Today seemed like a good day to open up the engine after I got everything organized..
Need to buy Rod Bearings, Main Bearings, Piston Rings, Seal Kit, Water Pump, Oil Pump, Timing Belt, and a Thinner Headgasket. Whos got 953 bucks i can borrow?
Slid at JUSTDRIFT event today..
Toasted my clutch on the last run of the day for the **** of it hehe
So I took the engine to the machine shop and got word from them a few days later that my #4 cylinder was out of round and had to be bored to be evened out. This was caused by the Blown Headgasket. So bigger pistons it is.
I am getting the following done:
Hot Tanking the: Head, Block, Crank, Pistons, Connecting Rods, Intake Manifold, Oil Pan, Tranny Mounts, Motor Mounts, Alternator Bracket, and my Valve Covers
Checking all oil Clearances
A 3 Angle Valve Job
Cylinders will be Honed
They will also be bored out .020" over
Brand new Oversized Pistons and Rings will be Pressed In
Master Gasket Kit
In other news, my engines done. Total cost out the door with the crank set in with new bearings is gonna be $550.
I have no money so, well see when i retrieve it. I also acquired a Vertex rear bumper and Brembo Drilled and slotted rotors
Finally paid off my Engine. Turned out to be 450 even.
While I was installing the final piston I bent one of the oil expander rail rings. Will have to get a new set
Day 2 in re assembling this puppy.
Finished up the bottom end compeltely.
Installed Oil Pickup, Baffle Plate, Oil Pan, AC, PS, WP, Alt, Tensioner, Fans, Crank Pulley, Thermostat, and the Water Outlet and Inlet Housings.
Im still waiting on my Head Bolts to put on the head. Hopefully by tuesday!
And what remains... Intake Plastics, Intake Mani, valve Covers, AC and PS lines, and Oil cooler w/ lines.
Well ive come a long way these past 6 months, hopefully it gives you guys something to look at. Im hoping to paint the engine tommorow, align my car, andtorque down the head tuesday. If all goes well im throwing it in this weekend.
Today i finished assembling the engine, and taking out the Old one. I started at 9pm Wednesday, and went home at 6am Thursday. Went to go sleep. Woke up at 1pm. And finished it off around 530pm. Tommorow night were gonna throw it in.
Well i broke in the engine. Gonna do the oil change tommorow, and go to the track sunday! Hooray for abusing brand new engines!
In other news I got a front bumper to finish off my kit.
Test fitment,Fitments pretty legit. I also relocated my license plate to the right. Lets go to the track!!!
DMAX roof wing. And i lowered it just a tad..
It took me almost 2 months, but it was well worth it, since I got em for CHEEEEEEEEAP. Hooray for working at a Toyota Stealership!
Heres an update thats actually worth clicking my thread for haha
I finally gathered all my parts for my Manual Rack conversion.
TE72 Manual Rack, Ujoint, and Intermediate Shaft.
I hooked it up with some TechnoToyTuning Outer Tie Rods and Beefy Knuckles. I also bought a BattleVersion rack spacer, but I was antsy to put the rack in, I decided to throw it on later when I have time to pick it up from Alex.
Since the PS Pump, Idler, and AC compressor run on the same belt, everyone deletes the AC at the same time as PS. But **** that I love my AC, so i junkyard hopped around and found an MR2 AC bracket(MR2s never came PS) and it bolts right up to my block, which lets me run an MR2 AC belt, which enables me to keep my AC and delete PS.
Fitting the new rack in
Megan Coils, DGARAGE RCAs, T3 Knuckles, T3 Tie Rods, SS Brake Lines
All i need are Tension Rods and a Sway bar and my front suspension would be complete.
Angle without centering the rack, or Doing my alignment
After alignment and 1/4 Turn before FULL LOCK. I cant go to full lock at the moment because my tires rub on the Frame Rails.
These are all set with the knuckles on the stock setting, no rack spacers, -1.5 Camber, 2.25 Caster, 0 Toe.
Car show at DCH Toyota of Oxnard (previous Employer)

Footage of the track event i went to... if anyone has any pointers for me im all ears.. I tend to understeer alot (FIXED)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vSQiENeWWA
I was talking to a buddy of mine, not sure his forum name, but we went over my alignement specs and before i head back out im gonna switch things up a bit.

Its back... woohoo
After a Frame Pull, new Passenger fender, new Corner Light, New Eyelid, and the complete front end repainted...
I think im gonna need a new JDM Bumper...
New wheels and new Painted bumper.
I did run 15x9 +15 all around, but the front wouldn't fit, and with 15 mill spacers they would stick out TOO much. So I went down to 15x8 0 offset for the front and 15x9 +15(w/ 20mm Spacer) in the rear. Running 195/50/15 on both the 8 wides and 9 wides. I gotta lower the rear a lil more, the stretched tire makes the car look super high in the rear.
Unfortunately in the accident my cars differential Broke, so now it peg legs. In the process of Buying a TRD 2 way.
Also go ahead and like us on facebook were currently working on paperwork to get some local track events up at the old DriftDay spot in Camarillo,CA.
Autopower cage bought, and welded it in instead of bolted
New plates for my car haha
Stripped my axle after installing my TRD 2 way.
Turns out even though my car is a kouki, it reads as a late ZENKI vin. so my rear end is a zenki. Well a KOUKI TRD diff doesnt like Zenki axles.. oopsie
Got tired of my tranny whine sounding like a supercharger so i decided to do something about it
Ready to rock for the drift event...
Well... i hit a K-RAIL with my RF Wheel and fucked the caster and a coil over.. time to replace parts
