Drift buddy of mine ONLY uses fiberglass bumpers. Even if they dont look as good... Reason? "Because if I hit something i want the bumper to break into pieces and not drag under the car" ..... Valid reason I guess.

haha everyone seems alittle upset about the aero! i picked it up for a great deal. I love my stock body setup aswell so we shall see if the aero actually makes it on. My priority is to get the car running and the bugs worked out before worrying about the looks.

I'm interested to know what you're doing for hood clearance. I'm running a 1j in mine and that is my current hurdle. Cam cover is too high, as are the intercooler pipes.

If yours is anything like mine, I don't think the uras vent is wide enough

Great looking build so far, going to be following thise closely as I just picked up a 87 Tii that has a blown motor and I've been thinking about what to swap in. Can I ask you what 2jz do you have? There are so many models and being new to them thats where Im stuck right now. Not sure what to research and what to go for. Thanks

I love your car. Needed to know where to buy all the gold parts for the rear end bushings and shocks. I have an 89 Turbo II with ls-1/t56 but got a lot of wheel hop. Need advice or directions in what to do and where to go. Thank you

Thank you! Everything suspension wise is parts shop max (PBM) at partsshopmax.com. I have all of their rear end bushings and links which made a huge difference. I would think the solid diff mount/ subframe bushings combo would eliminate any wheel hop issues you are encountering.

Thanks, this is a 2jz-gte VVTI from a 2000 aristo. The VVTI units are typically around $400 cheaper because people are afraid they are harder to tune. Read this article which lays all the VVTI myths to rest http://www.kaizenmotorsports.com/blogs/news/16740952-the-1jz-2jz-gte-vvti-system

nice swap, my buddy just did a 1JZ VVTi in his S13 vert.  Love the color and wheel choice.

Looking good, definitely a good call go with AN lines for the power steering.  Make sure the hose you get is PTFE lined and rated for extreme pressre
