Cheater Boy...


Ok let's set a basic checklist

Rally Legend: Check
Multiples Legendary Drivers: Check
Cool Cheating Backstory: Check
So Good it was Banned: Check
Limited Edition: Check
Great engine: Check
Underrated Performance Car: Check
AWD for them Grips: Check
POP UP FREAKIN HEADLIGHTS: CHECK

Got it? YES another Toyota but this time one of the most underrated legendary Cars ever I got myself an St185 if you are a noob name caller A Celica Gt four A.K.A One of the most dominant 90's WRC cars that was so good that it banned Toyota From WRC. Yet one of the least popular performance Jdm cars.



The model that I bought is a Euro Spec RC or Carlos Sainz edition #1475 that was originally from Ireland but the owner moved to Japan and passed out ever since the car was Neglected until it was put for sale a little after that I bought it. Costing me $7.300 Pretty cheap but since it had some mods and was an imported LHD the price dropped quite good.



The Car Shape is pretty amazing overall the engine runs Smooth no smoke Suspension feels tight since it sits on coils and has awesome wheels The interior is complete with non tears and smoke-free and the body is pretty good.

And the driveability is more than incredible this time the shop trip was over 6 hours and the little boy did it like nothing one of the best bits lf the trip was exiting a toll that I just pressed the clutch revved it and boom AWD LAUNCH BABY this thing rips doing the 0-100 in 6.8 seconds it was amazing



I really wanted something different for a while but I reckon that I find really hard to get adapted to FF layouts so I was left with MR or AWD and trying to spare my overpowered slammed Rwd Cars from the winter I made my mind on an AWD platform I looked for lots of Evo's and Subies even some eclipse's but I wanted something that would Stand From the crowd So I went with this but when I found a limited Edition Model I Jumped into it.



But how i could afford this... Well, I Sold the 1.5jz from the S14 but why? Remember the Soarer that made me met smokey (check the previous post) it happened that the owner paid a less experienced tuner That FUCKED the tune into it and two events later the engine that lasted 3 years being beaten as hell was blown When he explained to me I was Furious because it was so well built and tuned. But since he competes with the car and needed it back fast i sold my engine and also had to build a full new harness and a new ECU for it in three days so the Cost was actually reasonably high also fitted new coils getting 30% form the sale and extra 200 from TEIN it was 520 profit for the coils the Engine itself i Charged 8.000 the harness was 2.000 and the ECU and tune 3.080 and Labor of extra 1400 in total it was 15.000 and a tune lock for 6 months (warrranty) i went kinda hard on him but i got pretty upset when people fuck my work soo s14 is getting postponed a little

GOOD LORD A GT-FOUR! a Carlos Sainz edition too! :-X
(Even though i work at Nismo, im still a sucker for most Toyota enthusiast cars, and the Celica is definitely no exception! )
Can't wait to see some tasteful mods on the thing already. Some Fifteen52 Tarmacs along with proper lowering (if you're keeping it a street car/track car) should have it looking like a charm :D

More doors more Whores...


So even after owning 5 cars i realized i had a problem hauling passengers because first there was always some that never ran and more than half were caged (s13,s14, and supra), one was half caged but didn't ran (AE86) and the only lasting was very poor in cargo and rear seat Space (St185). So being the Carcaine junkie i am i did the reasonable and went Shopping, Some of you may see me talking to BigSmoke in his RP that i was looking for an ER34 that he bought first since i already had the interest i went looking for an ER34 again.



Ended up buying this beautiful 1999 aero manual with only 16.866 Km's the car was perfect only consumed by the time like the yellow headlights and worn suspension but looked flawless. it was amazing seeing a car with such low use and by a very good price $ 4.400 considering thats it has a Rb25DET Neo and its a manual wnd the car handles great but at the end still is a 20-year-old sedan



Obviously, I couldn't keep it stock so yeah as the original tires were expired i switched to r33 Stockies with advans that i had also fabricated an exhaust with some leftover titanium for it as for now these are the only changes but soon ill mess to make this rb a little happier

Purple Boi...


As big as my love for Sedans is we all gotta agree the r34 was looking hella boring so I had to do something about it and after some time scoping I grabbed some parts fabbed some more to make the r34 look sick it wasn't that hard but oh boi the result is amazing just look at it
(spoiler it's not complete)



Let's start with the exterior... Pretty sure everyone can see the Z-tune Kit that I got from a friend of mine for 1k, yeah it lacks the rear fenders but I really don't care since the tires already fit fitting it wasn't difficult only minor trimming and bodywork and boom mean +100



Also, another exterior update was the Work meister's that I bought the specs are 19x10 front and 19x12 on the rear so yeah I needed to figure the offset to clear the massive rubber that this puppy so the final price for the wheels was $2000



on the rear, the only Big change was the bumper Since the Aero came with the gt-r wing already but there are two things that have been bothering me first the muffler is too small for Japan and the Lights look kinda dull kinda wanna go for LED's



Just look at how beastly this Thing Looks from the Front gotta say I'm in love with it imagine this pulling up on your back at the wangan I would move LoL



Ofc I wouldn't let the engine stock... but for your disappointment, it isn't an Rb26 But the S14 will be and that's where I got the turbos From but Ofc I wouldn't just lug they in So they received full billet wheels and porting and a New header that converted they from parallel to sequential before you say that this is gonna give me backpressure remember that it has a full exhaust made so the only backpressure is caused by the turbine's. For the sake of look's I got rb26 valve and belt covers and fabbed a Plenum for it since I was already into it now I'm running it pretty conservatively on low boost and it already feels amazing hitting full boost at 2000 rpm and not dipping boost over 7K also got used Tomei Cams for it so I can spin this baby more going for over 8000 when it gets tuned



But power isn't nothing without proper suspension and OFC I was hooked up with my Standard package from tein but went with a Slightly less aggressive setup since its a daily also got into the CNC to make some custom adjustable arms and shortened knuckles since ill be hitting the track also gotta say the fitment is pretty sick looking at the final result



and the color Is midnight purple but when I tool these pictures I had only the single stage basecoat done so that's why he looks odd but the pearl is already done and ill be spraying it soon

Z-tune kit means an instant seal of approval from me! :thumbsup:
Also yay for the Tomei cams! I used these on my Evo and they worked so heavenly :D

So it's going to be a Wangan build? I'd imagine people seeing it as another R34.....before getting surprised over the fact it's a sedan instead of a coupe :D
Also would be a nice tool to entertain/scare passengers on the run :))

yeah it is but there's lacking some paint when it gets pinkier a little it will be even better

Tomei's are great for dailies smooth idle and pretty consistent powerband especially with them twins

Nah i already have the supra for wangan but maybe since it's going to be a daily and all-rounder but wangan requires lot more hp than this engine can produce and would be useful for its use

# Buzzsaw : Damn, midnight purple will be looking good and is it Tomei dahh cam, I'm a fan of them of the company, I should buying them for my Supra.

I have HKS one's on mine but it's a VVT-i but cams without head work are kinda limited because you usually dont use all the flow you can get

Introducing StupidZ...


Ok so after building so much nice looking and carefully built cars i really started feeling a hole in my garage (thank not is not my wallet) and the hole was as stupid as it sounds. A stupid thing that i could take to bash as much as i want So my next stop at the next day was junkyard.
Knowing the owner of the junkyard i already knew what i was going to get Simple easy to build but uncommon combo a Z33 and something some may find weird a Vh41 but why actually quite simple i just wanna 8500Rpm Big turbo 700hp V8 yes that my friccking goal



For now it's already with suspension Fully done just basic super Slammed Tein Super Drift's because that thing is gonna be SLAMMED this really is just gonna be my F it Just send it build next step is mounting the engine.



aslo random 34 pic because he looks good

Yap carcaine addiction kicks in again :))
Not a bad thing tho, Z33 is tuner bae indeed, almost bought myself one before switching to S15 for TA purposes :))

If you're indeed going to fit a VH or even a VK inside, you're officially the equivalent of Chris Forsberg here in the forums :))
I love VK series for it's racing usage along it's lifetime, particularly in endurance racing
Good luck for the project man! :D

Ure the z33 is bae for tunning/drifiting also yeah im kinda the forum forsberg wannabe now, yes it really's gonna be a v8 but a VH not a VK especially since its a oversquare lightweight forged engine and the only thing i may lose is some torque but since imma slap a trbski to it ill replace the low torque with 8000 rpm+ revs and boost since vh's hold reliable 700+hp

Money is the entrance to Stupidity...


So lets start by saying that the Celica is gone long story short I sold it to a collector for 25k considering I gathered all the history and data I could of the car it was fair (SAUCE *LINK* ) but he also paid another 15 grand for a full restoration and tuning of the car and honestly when I was done I really wanted to keep it because it was so much better and I was going to leave the AWD club leaving ol Big Smoke almost alone but wait, 40 grand I could spend getting my dream car...

A FUCKIN GTR BITCHES

So after scoping for cheap bnr32's, I got between these:
*LINK*
*LINK*
*LINK*

Long story short the last was my favorite but the guy didn't want to negotiate and actually wanted more than the listed so I went to ask for the first when I realized the second was a repaired one the guys at JDM expo were amazing and understanding that I wanted a stock one they sold the car for 16.500 bucks + gave me all the missing OEM parts they had Anyway here's my new GT-R





Also went on to buy a HOTBOI project got it for 5.5 K

*LINK*

P.S: Sorry for the lack of updates is just that becoming an automotive engineer IRL is way harder than I tough so I'm not being able to write that much or to play but at least I'm trying to keep commenting on you guys topics.

I'm sure everyone wants one badly as well, but with price rocketing sky high these days, it's rather hard to find one in immaculate, clean condition.

The prices definitely went through the ceiling I remember back in the day when Phonexius had it's 1000 hp R32 looking for the ones around 9/11 grand and thinking it was ridiculous. Well look at me now, Also if I get the chance(and if redcardriver drops the r33) I'll get an r33 soon because they are still clear of the Us import hype (R32) and Paul Walker Hype (r34). And oh yes this is a car to be deserved such a nice little thing to drive around. When you come back from murica ill give you a ride.

EPIC NO DOUBLE EPIC...


Well as a normal story let's start from the beginning... Yesterday I was cooking some ramen listening to some AM when my phone started ringing Tokyo Drift Knowing well who it was the conversation began...
"Hi Nagata-san"
"Hey Enzo How are you and The shop Going"
"I'm pretty fine, and the shop is good full of customers"
"Good Good, Actually called because I need a lift"
"That's weird what about your's 1000hp Rides"
"Actually I need your help on something"
"Oh Sure do you want me to pick you up at the shop"
"No, I'll meet you at the Shinkansen station at 13 P.M"
"Great ill be there"

Well if Smokey Invited me to something it's gonna be something good. But since we agreed to meet at 13:00 but since I'm a stupid Foreigner I got there 12:55 but actually I kinda got too excited with the GT-R and shaved some time too so I took some time and snapped some pics of the R32 at the same place of the R34 13:02 Smokey arrived.



When I Asked Where we were going He told me we were visiting Kei Miura's shop at that moment I was like OH BOI this is gonna be EPIC. After an hour and a half of driving, we agreed on a Snack break which meant MORE GT-R Pics





After a Snack and a couple more driving we arrived at kei's shop. They were both building something special and smokey asked me to give some points about chassis and supension. But then Something awesome happened after we discussed some things of the build i glanced Kei going arround and arround the R32 he seemed pretty intrigued then he said

Kei:
"That's a Very clean R32 you got"

Me pretty flattered:
"Thanks just got it last week was quite a find"

Kei Again:
"Indeed is very rare to see good stock ones around"

Me falling into his game:
"Yes i actually asked for some of the stock parts that were missing"

Kei Doing what he was preparing me:
"How about we Widebody this car seems like a good base and i actually have only one pandem of these in japan"

Me EXCITED AF
"well im kinda wanna keep it stock but would be an honor to work with you"

Kei
"Let's do It like this I'll give you the kit and help you fit it and Smokey can help you with some engine parts how about"

After seeing Smokey clearly agreeing in the back

Me almost having a heart attack:
"Im honrored that you are giving me this oprtunity so lets build this baby"

We actually talked a lot more this is just the important parts


Pic at Kei's shop without showing what he's working because he asked.




GUYS GUYYYYYYS CAN you believe because i cant two of the most legendary Japanese tuner's decided to help me build one car of mine (yeah i worked and built engines for Top Secret) But this is a Whole new level i just can't say more than EPIC.

Added 1 minute later:

# Lagano : Hey look a fellow R32 GTR here! :D That was a nice find looking at how the prices are rising lately.

Hello there fellow GT-R Owner yeah it was a find as even smokey and Kei said

Well Smokey i know for over three years and he's the reason I got to Japan and he's also the person who convinced me to sell my cars(previous mentioned SC300) to get my own shop but yeah Kei was unexpected especially he decided my car was going to be widebody but Kei is also a very nice guy

THE TERMINATOR...


Remember when said that I was getting my dream car I not only got my JDM dream car but my USDM dream car as well which one do you ask a 2004 Mustang SVT Cobra or better known as the Terminator and I can't be more grateful to someone other than Big Boss who took time of his trip to get this car for me now ill let he tell his part of the History.
The entire post is taken from BigSmoke's RP.

# BigSmoke :
The American Job
[30 Apr 2019]
It's time to get rocking and do the transport mission! First off, I have Ziga with me as I drive from Ardmore to DFW airport in the Silverado at early morning. Sun was partly rising as we set off. Ziga was a bit sleepy when we set off, but I guess eventually he'll fully woke when we arrive at DFW. Well yes, I could simply park the car there as I'll be at CA for less than 12 hours, but I think it'll be safer if I have Ziga return the car to Side to Side HQ. If he managed to be fully woke that is, and I hope he remembers that the truck still has the stock brakes, which has stopping power as big as a biscuit......

Along the way, to get some more information and to keep Ziga awake, I asked him on how to ship cars from US to Japan. Fortunately he's kind enough to point me to one of his trustees at Port of LA, as well as giving me a crash course on the paper and import agreement procedures. With enough infos secured, finally I arrived at LAX and handed the keys to Ziga.

And so, I departed from DFW to LAX...........

.....and landed an hour later. After I landed and and a cup of coffee at a shop inside the airport, I contacted the Mustang owner and informing that I've just landed and ready to go to his place with an Uber. Not gonna lie, actually there's nothing to be worried about and there's no need to rush along this transport job, but because I'm a time attack addict (and recently attending time attack races as well), everything seems to roll so fast, so I work as fast as possible as well. The need for speed creeps into my daily life it seems :)) It feels like I've jumped into a action movie involving secret agents and missions.

My Uber car was a Toyota Prius, so uhhh....no pics of it :)) the driver would mind of me taking pic of the car as well I guess, so I'd better not take a pic after all. This being a Prius, the ride along the trip to the Mustang owner was quite comfortable, if not a bit mundane. Well at least finally I'm able to see and live the downtown Los Angeles traffic by my own eyes, something I usually can only see via Hollywood movies. Speaking of movies, specifically action movies, I enjoyed a lot of them, in particular anything involving a secret agent, detectives or law forces, as well as lots of driving action and requirement of intelligence (fights are seondary). Some of my favourite series are 007/James Bond series (obviously!), Sherlock Holmes series, Die Hard series and The Transporter. As for The Transporter, I like the main character's stoic, ice-cold yet caring personality as well as his choices of cars.

Another hour of the trip and I arrived at the owner's place. As we have a banter about muscle car ownership and my trip from Ardmore to Calabasas, he took the car out from his garage. Trust me, it actually looks better in person......definitely something someone might use in an action movie!



After checking the car condition for a while and showing him the transfer proof, as well as waiting for him to check if the transfer indeed succeed, we shook hands and the deal is sealed. The owner then get the papers and slips sorted as we have our last chatter. With everything done and the Mustang in my hands, I left the place and went to the Port of LA via interstate roads for some more testing by myself.

The good news is, the engine looks visually health from outside. But in order to assess it mechanically without having to dissassemble the car, there's only one way to find out.........and that is to hit the gas deeper. Well if you wonder if it's actually okay, Sleepy said I could keep this car for a while and drive it anywhere as long as I didn't get caught by cops or even worse, wrecking it. But since Calabasas to Ardmore takes around two days of trip including rest, and there's a dockyard nearby Calabasas rather than Ardmore, I decided to simply send it immediately.


The engine is in healthy condition indeed, as it provides that sweet supercharged V8 soundtrack without any side effects or unwanted noises. This thing motivates you to keep on pressing the pedal along the way, and aided with the vastness and also straightness of most American highways. Probably this is why most American performance cars has a very, very long gearbox ratio compared to European and Japanese ones.

The SN95, frankly speaking, is one of my three favourite Mustang generations, the other ones being the 1967-1968 generation and the 2013 facelifted S197A. And one reason that I like the SN95, other than it looks so 90s and not so boxy is....the existence of the Mustang SVT Cobra R. No, not this one as this is the regular SVT Cobra, but indeed the front bumper is a replice of the R version. Often appearing as a video game racer, the Cobra R is essentially Ford's 90s equivalent of today's Porsche Cayman GT4, Renault Megane 275 Trophy or VW Golf CS: A streetlegal pure track toy machine. The Cobra R has no back seat, no radio and not even an air conditioner.....just like an actual GT racer! Even for the 1995 model you can only obtain a Cobra R if you're either a race driver (of any discipline and level. All you have to do is flash/flex your race license to the dealership) or a racing team owner. You see, it could be said that Ford invented the high-end track day racer market before it was cool and booming like we know it today.

I had to veer off the interstates and went back to downtown LA because it's lunchtime, I almost forgot to contat Sleepy and all these adrenaline rush made me hungry. But coincidentally this also serves as a test for the Mustang's city driving capability. In this form, complete with that supercharged engine and in thsi colour, it's quite a show-stopper. Literally everyone is looking me at traffic lights and muttering something, either admiring the sharp, savage looks thanks to the Cobra R bumper or complaining about the loud V8 engine and/or the supercharger whine.

Thankfully, despite I left it for a while for lunch and contact with Sleepy to inform I've secured the Mustang, nobody has tried to vandalize it. Probably because it was a busy day and every single human being was on the street at that time. I'm glad to report that despite the clutch taking some time to get used to, everything is fine in this thing and nice enough for a stroll in the city. Just be prepare to attract sooo many people in the streets. Some are complimenting the car, some dissed it for various reasons, some even encouraged me to rev it up or even do a burnout. I admit that Ii revved up at times, but don't worry, I didn't pull a single burnout on thsi thing. I don't want to be either arrested by the cops or even commiting the crowd control joke and smash something. This isn't really my car after all.

I went to the Port of LA via a short section of the interstates......which involves tunnel. Time to roll down the window, drop a gear, and play with the throttle as I direct an orchestra of 4.6L liter supercharged V8 inside. Or since it was actually quite loud, make it into a heavy metal concert instead. And I'm sure some people would say muscle cars are best enjoyed while listening to loud and brash music inside. You know, speed metal, death metal, heavy metal, punkcore, etc etc etc......


Finally, I reached the Port of LA's dockyard. I have to went a bit further around to find the import/exporter company office where they could sort the shipping process to Japan. If I'm not mistaken, either this or Port of Long Beach, which located close to it, was featured in the very first scene of the very first FnF when they load up stuff into a truck in the middle of the night before Dom and his crew in Civics with green neons hijacked said truck. As this is daytime, there's no nee dto worry about such things. Time to deliver an overnight parts-ah I mean, a Mustang to Japan :))


Finally, I found the company's office, where I immediately register the Mustang to be exported to Japan. The company's representation said the Mustang will arrive in Japan in 7-10 days, depending on the weather on the ocean. With all the papers and other procedures sorted and completed, here comes the last step of the mission: Parking the Mustang near the cargo ship and giving the keys to the company to be safely delivered with it. I stayed there for a while until the Mustang has landed on the cargo deck. Hopefully it'll be delivered safely to Sleepy's hands :)

With mission completed, I ordered another Uber to LAX to fly back to DFW. Probably this would be the last time I'll visit LA....or I don't know, probably there would be another chance to visit the downtown again along the US trip. But hey, I'm grateful for that. After another lengthy flight to DFW, I ordered yet another Uber to get me to Ardmore.

Big boss my man I couldn't be more grateful especially for testing the car and traveling 3+ days to get it for me so I did something to compensate what words can't say I transferred you 500 bucks to compensate for the work I gave you. can't wait next week to get it and get the supercharger and v8 noises back in my life (sold the ae86 entire engine for 3.250)
