Mmm haven't updated this in ages...
I've probably posted half this crap in the pics/vids section but here it is again..
Swapped the good interior in, back in March
And attempted to fit some crap into the tiny 4WD boot
Then lowered it on some crap springs, brand new crap shocks, and 17"s
Rear still sat high as a kite even though the springs weren't captive...
Moved the battery to the boot..
Meanwhile, something evil was in the works
Got some factory rice
Part number is MB726336 if anyone wants to know
Washed the car
More JDM y000
And a genuine Bride bolt in drivers side rail from Japan
Sold the 17"s, and swapped a tidier bumper and filler panel on from my other car
Replaced the 17"s with genuine TE37's
Bought new front discs and pads
And now for the fun part
Thanks to Patrick from 4G61NZ we had the use of his boss's workshop over a weekend, so we got to work on the engine swap
The n/a beast:
61T with TD04L still on, and flywheel, 3" front pipe, evo AFM etc..
My grotty 3.545 diff setup that looks like its just been pulled from the bottom of the ocean..
Bye bye n/a!
