This is a car I can finally start a good project on. I've not really done one before, so this should be good for me Smile

I'll let the pictures do the talking...











Specs:

3" exhaust from turbo back plus de cat pipes
Whirlpool fuel pump
Lowered with shocks and springs
Polly bushed the rear sub frame and alley bushed the rear diff.
Tubular equal length race manifold
Copper manifold to head gasket
Copper manifold to turbo gasket
Copper turbo to down pipe gasket
HKS waste gate
Gizmo electronic boost pressure regulator
Front mount intercooler with small battery conversion
Front strut brace
Rear strut brace
Rear lower strut brace
Engine stabiliser/damper
Braided brake lines
Hydraulic hand brake
Short shifter
OMP steering wheel with boss
Lengthened inner track rod ends (more lock)
30mm wheel spacers
Oil pressure gauge
Boost pressure gauge
Air-fuel mixture guage
De-spoilered/smoothed boot
Rolled arches


Firstly, before anyone says it, yes i know, it needs slamming! Will be getting some HSDs to sort this out soon!
I've changed the CD player to a new one with iPod connection.
Next I need to replace the sterring wheel as it's quite worn and the horn doesn't work?! also need the airbag cancellation circuit to get rid of the airbag light on the dash. Then I can look at making other changes...

Benkei tell me you still have the supra?

If you want to sell the steering wheel I'd like first look as I'd love one! Any chance of a viewing?

I'm sure youl do somthing special with this! Good buy!

this will be cheaper to mod than the supra...and easier to get bits for...and far more affordable stuff available....i see your reasons...this is a good start point...

just jack those rims Very Happy

Yeh Spence, once I've found a replacement you can have this one...

It is a step down form the Supra, but that particular one was 'too modified'. Fast; yes. Fun; very. Thirsty... JESUS! I couldn't justify the amount of money spend on running it, and I couldn't afford any kind of modificatons or presonalisations for it. I decided to sell up and buy a car out right instead of paying off a loan. There's other things I want as well as a nice car, and the Supra was taking up all of my money, which left me without other things.
Plus I was too scared of dings and scratches on the Supe! This one already has a few scratches, and it's been to a few drift days (has a DWYB sticker covering a big scratch on the front bumper!) so I'm not too fussed about things like that. This is more for fun and enjoyment rather than looking spotless!

it looks pretty damn clean IMO. got some nice small/sublte mod's, which is all an s-body needs to make it fun as hell! Lowered more on the HSD's, ditch the bonnet risers, and maybe a change of wheels and i dont think i'd do anything else apart form drive it, any which way but straight cheers

i got rid of mine because of the running costs, so i can't imagine how much the 2JZ was costing What a Face
regardless, everytime i drove it i had a smile on my face

Yeh, I'm not sure on the raised bonnet. I actually don't mind the wheels though, going to keep them on the front, but put some nice deep-dished rims on the back Very Happy

I found out that the previous owner has put some lights inside the front bumper which illuminate the intercooler when you put the lights on... Rolling Eyes Going to get these out! A bit too Fast and Furious for me!! *goes to check for under-car neons and a bottle of NOS*


Ned, stop hating or GTFO Laughing

Deffo a step down from Supra but you made a wise decision.

Yeh, there are chips and that on the S14, but I'm not really too bothered tbf... I think that's a good thing.

I like the wheels Ned...


So I removed the chav lights from the front bumper, now I no longer feel embarrased about driving at night... Also de-raised the bonnet. It feels like it's lost a feature, like shaving off some stylish facial hair... But I think it looks good without it.

Yeh mate, getting some HSDs soon. I found some DriftWorks poly bushes in the boot too... Very Happy

I don't think they're genuine AVS' unfortunately, but they will do for now while I decide what direction I'm going to take it...

I will be at the meet Very Happy

looks clean as hell in the metal bud

you need to try that hydro brake out and let me know how it locks, one or both of my cables have gone again and if the hydro is any good il get one instead of fixing or upgrading the cable system

I gave the hydro a yank on the way home... Barely did anything to be honest... Next time I get a chance I'll be more aggressive with it and see if that helps... might work better for entering a corner...

So the first of my updates has been done... Just something small, but I think it helps give the car something more going on...

Front windscreen showing TOA decal, and a new Rising Sun decal top-centre...


Close up



The rear window now decaled up!



The stickers on the skirts



And the Tow Arrow



Next on the list, some much needed slammage!
