    Black Friday vendor deals

    CXRacing is doing 12% with their promo code that lasts until 12/2.
  2. Thanks! The flares were put on by the previous owner and I believe they are old JPN garage flares. I'm trying to make them last until I go to the next phase of the exterior, but the quality is not very good tbh. Yep 16x9 -15 all four corners. I am using 1-inch bolt on spacers on all 4 corners though.
  3. Started working on the front brakes over the weekend. I was able to get everything installed on the front passenger side except for the lines. I also installed a T3 roll center adjuster on that side as well. My original intention was to replace all of the brake lines throughout the car but I took about an hour to inspect everything before install and was surprised how good they looked. I guess I'll hold off on that for now. There is so little detailed information on the T3 brake kits out there, so I decided to take comparison shots of everything and record the weight of everything compared to stock. As you can see below, there is quite a big difference when comparing the front calipers and rotors. For those wondering, the T3 set up is 2.8 lbs lighter on each corner up front. I will post the weight difference for the rear as soon as I can. Once I finished the install, I test-fitted a wheel so I could see what everything would look like. Going out of town for Thanksgiving, so I wont get to work on this for a few weeks. The G-nose is coming in on Wednesday, and will post pictures of that once I unpack everything to make sure nothing got damaged in shipping. I hope everything has a great Thanksgiving and long weekend!

    Very interested to see how things go with the electric power steering, as I'm considering the same thing down the road.
  5. Back from the dead! Thank god. I really love this build and want to see how the rest of it goes. What frame rails are you using?
  6. Yea i have the g nose from restored.jp coming in next week. Ill post some pictures of that and the T3 front and rear Wilwood brake kits that just came in.
  7. During the holiday season I acquired the following: BC standard height coilovers using standard spring rates Apex Engineered Rear Lower Control Arms Rota Grid V wheels 16x9 -15 245/45/16 Toyo R888r tires Also replaced the tail light gaskets, inner and outer hatch lining, changed the oil, and installed Chasing J's titanium steering wheel bolts. I used wheel spacers on all 4 corners to poke the wheels out a little more too. During the time of installing everything, I contemplated whether to swap in an LS or a single turbo 1jz/2jz. Finally decided to go with the LS, as I've owned both turbo cars and LS swapped cars and wanted to have a V8 in my life again 😄. I did a terrible job of taking pictures during the installation process; something I'll strive to be better with in the future for you guys. I've posted some random pictures I took of the parts, along with some shots after installing everything. The next post will go over some of the parts I've accumulated to install during the winter.
  8. I've had my car for a little over a year now and feel like it's finally time to start a build thread. I purchased this chassis from a high school student in California who needed to sell it before he went to college. He did a partial restoration on the car and it seemed to be in good enough condition with VERY minimal rust. I had the car shipped to Cincinnati Ohio in August of 2017 and drove it for a few months in the condition shown in the first 3 pictures. I did some misc. repairs over the past few month, removed all the stickers, and installed fender mirrors and a Chastain Shadow rear window louver. These should be shown in the 4th and 5th picture. My plan always was (and still is) to upgrade the suspension and brakes before completing the swap. I accumulated parts and prepared to work on everything over the winter so I could drive the car when it warmed up in 2018. The next post will go over all of that.

    Thanks for the feedback on this. When you talk about the cross brace that ties into the TC area, are you referring to Apex Engineered? I attached a link below. Front tubular crossmember

    Read this entire thread and it's convinced me to go with the CX Racing kit (with the exhaust manifold and y-pipe being a big selling point for me). Can you comment on the NVH with this kit? I was considering the JCI kit because it allows for OEM rubber mounts, but am willing to overlook that.

    Best LS Swap Kit?

    I spoke with Apex and they are going to be releasing an LS specific mounts for their cross members. I guess we will see what they come up with soon.
  12. Gorilla lugs are really strong and come in a variety of colors.
