    Yeah thank Fuck I'm not in vic! Poor bastards.

    Well picked the car up today, just driving back and currently just have some late lunch at hornsby.

    Car is fuckin awesome! I did have to stop at supercheap Goulburn though to buy some new wipers, stock ones were well past their used by date and jumping across the screen..

    Few scratches here and there but I think most of them will come out with a good polish.





    Has cheap HSD coilovers so I will raise the back a little. But the coilovers are surprisingly ok.

    Better get back on that road though.

    fyi there is a kit out of the states (subframes etc) to allow you to bolt in the 1uz.

    is200/300 were very well engineered, just underpowered.

    fyi I have a late altezza digital cluster that would fit your car if you are interested? looks like this:

    with the oil sender. you can get a carbon face kit for it as well

    gita wagons are available in nz

    wonder how feasible it would be to graft the backend onto a local is200/300

    late gita's were available as awd as well!!

    Yep, saw one for sale there in what seemed decent nick for $2500 there 2 years ago... Whimper. Looked like an awesome bit of kit for good value.

    As much as a UZ would be awesome, JZ makes a lot more sense. Stuggling to think of a better cheap, newish, half decent project base than these, awesome cars just begging for more power.

    Very nice. Will be a good garage companion for the EZ30 turbo wagon.

    So spent the morning washing clay barring and then a polish. Got rid of some light scratches but the paint really needs a good cut and polish with a orbital to have any good results. Will look at getting it resprayed in the next couple of years.

    awesome project, Link have figured out the body comms stuff now so their ECU's have a fully functioning dash/climate control etc.... something to keep in mind when you get a V161

    Oh Al, here is the build plate.

    Looks like a A650E slush box, which is the 5-Speed auto.

    The JZS161 I have has the 4-speed A340E (guess the 4 speed can cope with the torque), the non-turbo Aristo came with the A650E too.

    So it looks like I will be loosing a gear int he swap. But figured I'll gain a couple back down the road anyway.

    Yeah will have a think. But the 650 is a unknown, more than likely need to be modded to have gte powers. Must be a good reason they didn't use them on the turbo Aristo.

    I think you could low ball him now. The LS1 has had some parts thrown at it. He has had it for sale for a while now. Not sure why he wants a EVO. .

    oooh, may just do that.

    Its always a little awkward being in the Oil business, overseas, and talking to people on Gumtree. You get the picture.
