Sorry guys I know it seems like I haven't really posted much.
Im still waiting on my cars Driveshaft to be finished, Seems like its been a life time.
Im getting anxious.
But really Ive just been buying parts for this thing so when I get it back, the wrenching will commence.
Over the little month of it being gone, i've purchased;
-3" mandrel bends stainless steel (Exhaust Piping) for the downpipe
-Downpipe 1jz Flange
-Tomei turbo elbow (looked at future fab, but the way the motor is i didnt know about the angle the downpipe should go. the tomei is already flanged as well.)
( I think Exhaust downpipe will be the first thing i do. Not sure if i will do the whole exhaust...might as well right? Im thinking blast pipes like this would be something that would make the back of the car pop. Literally lol)
More than Likely won't be as big.
-An Rx-7 throttle cable First Gen FB3s ( I remember reading somewhere that someone used this. I'm kind of skeptical because it looks a little short, but when i get the car back, we will see.
-Intercooler. Went with a non name brand, but the measurements I needed to be precise, for it to be at somewhat an angle in front of how i have my Rad mounted. Might have my buddy do it since its already at his shop. Still wondering if I should do stainless steel or Aluminum as far as piping goes.
-My buddy had his old Tial BOV sitting around from his EG coupe so I bought that from him.
-Lastly the AEM Standalone from Driftmotion for the 1jz.
I got really lucky on this one, just on a wim looked at eBay for this. Someone bought it didn't use it, and was selling it. Really cool guy, it even came with a patch harness.
Thats about it for now. Exposed did some speedhut gauges. That might be the next big purchase for this car. At first I wasn't planning to have running gauges, but thinking about it now if im going to get this tuned I will need a working speedometer/tach? plus I should want to watch over what the motor is doing since its so new I.E Oil pressure, coolant, etc etc etc.
