Starting to make progress once again.

Been cleaning the garage up but got distracted with installing the replica Turbo A Air Duct.

I now have three bumpers - cutting this one up to avoid ruining a better one. Once I'm happy with the placement, i'll be cutting a good one up :eek:

Have finished cutting the holes in the bumper skin, foam and now the crash bar!
Next step is to have some one fibreglass the vent in properly and have it all painted up :)

Well! It would seem things are progressing. I have fitted a Bomex Whale Tail to see how it looks - looks awesome to me! Just need to have the paint matched and fix permanently.








Today a friend and I loaded it up and dropped it off to have the front pipe done... Very excited!

now you're talkin :cool: the mkiv wheels do look good, although for OE I still prefer the factory 91-92 wheels on the supra (they're pretty light too)

I'm savin up for some 5zigen fn01cr's :cool:

here's actual wheel wight I dug up so you could see (not sure if unpolished is the same weight)



a set of 93-97 polished rims were as follows:
fronts: 24.75lbs
rears: 26.55lbsthe 98 polished rims are a bit lighter without the ridges in the centers
fronts: 23.6lbs
rears: 25.4lbsthese are exact weights taken from a mailing center, not a home scale.



Toyota Supra 86.5-89 Cast 16x7 23.0 lbs

91+ 5spokes: 16x7, +44mm - 16lb/ea

Not too bad. At this stage I'm not tooooooo worried about the weights. If I get competitive I'll look at getting rid of some unwanted weight from the car ;)

What I do like are these ones:

They look Meister-ish. You know?

Haha I kinda get the feeling that you are. All good!

While car was at fabricators someone asked if I'd sell my wheels. I instantly thought about what you said about them being Lighter and sadly declined a sale. Oops! :p

Well! Pretty sick today so seems like a good time to do a update.

nite b's work on the front pipe is so nice! Realised i havent taken decent photos of it. Will get them a warmer day :)




In the last two weeks, I got a new intercooler from 41! Before that had a friend around and he used a panel punch to cut a 4" hole below the LHS light - so easy with the right gears!

Started to dummy fit:

Just need to mount the intercooler properly and can finalise the piping :)

Long time no update.. Too much work and sickness getting in the way! :p


With the 2JZ in the JZA70 chassis the stock throttle cable is JUST too short to work properly. I know i needed the cable itself about 30mm longer.




I ended up with a throttle cable from a Camry from a scrap yard. This was about 400mm too long so i had the awesomest idea of using the cable from the camry using the stock outside cable (what ever its called)





After i cut the cable i needed to fix a stopper to the end.

Had an idea of using a nut and bolt combo - a cut down the center and having the flanges of the nut crimp the cable.

Chur to the choice!






Another thing i managed to sort today was the lower mounting points for the intercooler.







And earlier, i took it out for a wash! Whoooop!

Been a while since last update and since then, I've been getting busy!

Was keen to use the Greddy manifold but the clearance issues would have stalled me for too long!





So back to the stock one!

Not before making a mount for the Aeromotive AFPR.

Also, this Speedflow addiction is getting out of hand! :p

Haha that's awesome! Was wondering where that car ended up! Are you South Island based? For some reason I thought it was there.

I'm going to have a read up on yours now.

Cheers!

Been working on a little something or my JZA70's 2JZ - a idler so that i'm able to retain the 6 Speed dampener and bracket.

Surprised i havent seen anything like this already.

I disassembled the A/C compressor and found that the front of the compressor was pretty much a plate with a shaft for the pulley to go on to.
If i want to get fancy i could always make another one up but we;ll see.
This fixes the issue of the PS pump not having a bracket below it also.

Anyways, lighting is bad and there's not much room to take pics so hope you get the idea!

What i was left with after disassembling and reassembling with the parts i needed:



Installed:


Look how much room there is down there! Could be the location of a remote oil filter or something like that:
