Hey guys,

First, I wanna say how awesome it was to attend my first eomm last night. The turnout was great and there were some pretty crazy cars! Pity about the po-po cutting the party short :(

Ok, so I bought the car with a standard 7MGTE with 4psi boost (dont laugh) lol.

After frying the head gasket I had to do something about all that water leaking out of the head, so I bought a 1JZ and in she went !

13 months and a lot of $$$ and headaches later, the conversion was done... well... kinda... still a few fiddly bits that need replacing and reconditioning, but she runs.

Minh... next time im weaving through traffic at 140km/hr, i'm going to kick you out of my shit car lol bitch !

Yeah, I either need to lift my bonnet or grind out some vents. hmmm

Surely i'm not the only person with driverside-mounted turbo who's legs start melting after 20 mins of driving.

p.s: my vents are all closed, redirected and turned on coldest.

Hawkeye: Hey mate ! You too ! It was good to see another supra that night lol.

Blownminiturbo: Cheers mate... :) Nice Soarer ! 1J or 1UZ ?

Peggy: Thanks ! Well, im gonna get the cosmetics sorted out before i do any more engine mods. 223rwkw is plenty for the street. The guards are being cut out as we speak to make way for the bolt-on fender flares. Then the wheel spacers on the 315s for that protruding chunky munky look. New frontbar, side and rears in a few weeks. Just slowly getting it to resemble something out of mad max lol.

Ethos: Thanks ! It was a circumstancial decision... I got the engine and box extremely cheap off a mate who needed the $$$ and i needed an engine. win-win. :P

Nice man what wheels you running to need 315's hahaaha

Mine??? 2jz no shit lol if you look under vertex soarer thats mine

Well, i've always loved the look of fat rubber. The biggest i could find for my rims in the dish and condition were 10" wide. They say 285 is max, but ive got the 315 with not much bulge at all. Im getting wheel spacers tomorrow and fender flares done as we speak because the real width is not being seen atm. (i still have 13mm clearance from my tyre and inner guard... :/ yes it's been lipped)

2jz ?? nice man ! I'll check it out ! :P
