Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! I don't like blacked out wheels. You're car was so nice too. sighs ;)

If the car was black it would look good. IMO.

do yourself a favor and buy a tranny jack from harbour freight and get the car up high enouhg on jackstand to drop it under the car...

it's UBER easy, too me two days but I had nasty muscle cramps from an injury at work, so it would only take a day to really do it...

Think im going stock flywheel for now. Just because I cant use the lightened aftermarket ones with the 1jz for when I decide to do that swap hah. Now im really just buying parts that are 1jz compatible. :evil2:

make sure and get it resurfaced.......although with those cracks i would suggest replacing it. Used ones are easy to find in good shape.

Just read all 12 pages of this thread hahaha, the car looks sweeeet, especially with the stance and the rims. Make sure to post pics when it settles (the ride height). Are you really considering a 1J swap? If you do, I don't think I'll view this thread too often/again. :sarcasm:

Cool! Nice to see some interest in this thread. =p

Yeah, im loving the stance. Curious to see what its like when it settles as well. :biglaugh:

The 1jz...eh, really depends on what happens. All depends on when my 7m blows . Basically comes down to if I have the money to do the swap when it happens. Or I may just rebuild my 7m to stock specs with MHG and shimmed oil pump.

We'll see.

More updates coming soon. =p
