Had this thing for a bit over 7 Years now and as various other cars have come and gone it has remained. Thought it was about time I shared it with PF.
Brought it as a completely standard 1993 SZ JZA80.
Spent a way to much money on a bodykits, various wheels and carbon bits over the years.
By mid 2011 I purchased a 1UZ-FE for it and planned to make it look as if it looked factory delivered with cruise control, AC etc as a nice daily.
Before I had even driven it around the block, I decided that the W58 5 speed wouldn't but up for the task and a 1993 RZ was purchased as a donor for its V160, B03B diff and a few other bits and pieces.
Fast forward 2 years later and by mid november 2013 the car was running nicely on the Haltech PS2000. Did a timeattack track day at QR and followed up with a Dyno Day a fortnight later. Made 213rwhp with Rush Headers, CoP and the Haltech on a self tune.
Power and handling was much better than with the 2JZ-GE, but the next step was boost. Brought a set of VNT25 Turbos off a kit in the UK and got stuck into fitting them.
Wasn't really satisfied with the fitment so on-sold the kit and more recently brought a Genuine T04Z for it. By now another 12 months (Nov 2014) have passed and I've only done 400km in it since 2011. I thought I'd reassemble it as naturally aspirated and just drive it around for a while until I could afford to throw more cash at it.
After purchasing a new battery the car would not crank over, turns out one of the belt guides had broken off around the front crank seal and had severely damaged the timing belt. A 100,000 km service was undertaken with new Water Pump, Idlers, Tensioner and Belt while the car was apart.
Reassembled and the car fired ran for 30 seconds before ceasing up. After a lot of confusion it was revealed that it had crank walk when engaging the clutch and the crank had walked far enough forward to lock it it up.
Turns out most of the thrust bearing was now in the bottom of the sump. The crank was nicely scored and it had also spun the #3 main bearing.
Pulled the heads off to find it had also done a head gasket. Makes the 213RWHP Dyno result the last time it was driven quite impressive.
Time to find a new motor.
