@marcus915 Thanks bro I hope it comes out nice!

@Smurf for the right price, and this one can be yours ;) its freshly Painted lol just ask for specs if you are interested (Basque Red Pearl)

The Jetta is now fresh out of paint and looking pretty fresh if I do say so myself. She has been coated in Honda Basque Red Pearl, but with less Metallic in the paint. I am in love with this color, I just need wheels to set it off perfectly:



Sometime I wonder how I get out of my driveway :D









Now for some good new for those in the market for a new car. I am now officially posting the supra up for sale, Check out my add in the Used car thread

That can't be too fun, letting a car go. Anyways, the VW is looking really nice. Too nice, infact. I think I'm becoming a tad jealous. I might have to buy a Volkswagen... Any recommendations on models I should search for?

Phantom remember when you bought the supra I said can't wait to see it done, I would never imagine that a bit later I would own her. Thanks for the sell man I appreciate it. It will be my daily too since the HCR32 has some minor engine problems and don't money to fix it now so when I get more money I will fix and tune up the HCR32 to race Harrisons R33 ;) The Jetta is comming nice. I love the color

I Got new wheels today! after what feels like weeks of riding on the stockies, I finally got my hands on these Weds Kranze LXZs in 18x10.5. these are second hand, but were polished and cleaned up before the sale. with tires, these cost me a smooth V$3,000. Right now I have the car set to factory settings from when I did the test fit earlier today. now I am on the way to the alignment shop to see what kind of numbers we can get. Feel free to let me know your thoughts lol:

@Phonexius It wouldn't be my car without an abundance of camber :))

@Lagano Thank you man! the Camber is back lol

5/11/16-

Back home from the alignment shop and after taking a day to settle the car I'm out for a drive. I know you guys missed the ridiculous fitment, so let me drop some numbers on you. The Front is sitting at -5.5 degrees like before, but now the rear sits at -7.5 :D simply loving it.







as it sits I am currently looking for a new daily or project to work on. I am looking in particular for an Aristo/Gs300 if you guys have a lead on one let me know! I am not opposed to trades either lol

5/14/2016- End of the Line

Today marks another sad day at my house. Over the past couple of days, I have been sorting out a sale on the Jetta. Every man has a price, and for the Jetta that price was V$9,000 due to the wheels and all the custom suspension work that went into the car. The Vw enthusiast in question was looking for VR6 Jetta with the Factory Manual transmission. He wasn't a fan of my fitment (as most people aren't lol) so I had to Return the car to factory settings before he picked it up. Am I sad to see it go? maybe. but it is time for a new stanced project or even a car to skid in. Till then, it is back to carpooling with a co-worker. Here is the final picture as she driving away:



V$10,940+9,000= V$19,940
- 02 VW Jetta (custom)

5/15/16- New Car

Well guys, I am happy to say that the next Project has finally made it! It was a terribly expensive buy, but I present to you my 2013 Scion Frs:





I picked this bad boy up for V$18,000 with 21,454 miles on the clock. It is the 6-speed trans. The only "mods" so far are the Jdm Toyota badges, which I was going to do anyways :D I am happy, here are 2 more pics from when I went to pick it up





V$19,940-18,000= V$1,940

A hefty toll but the car is worth it. I got this from a dealer so later on today I should have the Plates transferred over from the Jetta to this beast. I will update later on today when I pick up my check and put the plates on!

Thanks all of you for the kid words!
@Mister_Softee do you know where I can get some 326power coilovers here in the states?
@Phonexius glad I was able to surprise you ;) Truth is I missed the rwd fun I had in the old supra and saw this beauty. I had to jump on it. As for the touge car, once my money is back to a decent level I will be starting a project racecar to run street legal classes so stay tuned for that :)
@marcus915 Thanks buddy! I appreciate the help when I get alittle more cash I will for sure be giving you a call :cheers:
@Lagano Thanks man, that is the plan!

5/15/16- Part 2 Update!

Got the Plates transferred over to the Zn6, now she is road worthy and carrying the "Phantom" name :D



as per @marcus915 suggested, I did go out and pull some almighty skids lol. For 200 hp, this thing sure rips!







Also, pay day! V$1,940+565= V$2,505

I sold the Alfa Romeo Teledials to sonyguy699 today. +V$1,000

Total: V$3,505

I am no official certified dealer but I can swing you a set for 15% off MSRP which is around V$1200 shipped, our shop is still pending a business license and will be a few more months. We are trying to carry Fortune Auto but they only want registered businesses as vendors.


Any ideas for springs rates or what you wish to overall do with the car?

Overall, this is my Daily/fun car and I like to ride LOW. Static too. I am thinking maybe 14k front, 12k rear? I'd love it if we could work something out!

Whats up guys, the zn6 got some love today that came in the form of coilovers. Thanks to Mister_Softee I am now running 326power. the spring rates are 14k front 12k rear, as you guys know I drive low and need a stiff setup. The awesome guys over at Greenslip lent me some work space to install these, as I am getting tired of laying on my hard driveway doing suspension work lol/ here are some pics before alignment:





She is already low, and the coils aren't even maxed yet! we will settle that when it is time for new wheels. Also, Payday!

V$3,505+565= V$4,070

V$4,070-1200= V$2,870 :)

Hey guys what's up, I couldn't bare the thought of ruining such a new/expensive Fr-s besides my ultra low onikayn style that is bound to make it's way onto it. For that reason, I went out and picked up a car I can build, beat on and bash and not feel too bad if it gets totaled in the process. with that in mind, I bring you my new Project:





This is my new (to me) 2003 Nissan Fairlady Z (z33). Yes, you did read that right, this is a legitimate Ultra Yellow JDM spec chassis. With 60,000km on the body, the Z car was brought here from across the pond as a parts car, for a guy trying make his 350z as JDM as possible, while still retaining the LHD of a usdm chassis. This chassis was a steal at V$1500, because of the lack of engine, bumpers, skirts, and taillights. Fortunately, this car did come with the Oem Transmisson, which means I only need a motor to get it moving. I have a nice secret planned. Because the Fairlady Z will not be legal on the roads here in California for quite some time, I was forced to register this chassis as off-road use only. This does not require a license plate, but this means atleast through my complete ownership of the car, that is not able to be used on public roads. That's quite alright with me, because this has the potential to be a great track only drift build :D





BANK STATEMENT: 2,870-1500= V$1,370. I am going broke lololol

Mister_Softee you don't have to wait much longer! Today I have purchased the powerplant that will go into this little project. As you guys may know, I drive an Fr-s, and I've in the past owned a Supra. I wanted to keep on with the Toyota tradition, so I scooped up a 2UZ-FE for V$750 right here in California! This one in particular is out of a 2003 Toyota tundra. here are some specs on the make up of this engine:


In Preparation for this swap, I Have also ordered a Collins Performance Technologies UZ to 350z transmission adapter plate (V$300). I'm am going to be working on the swap at Green Slip Automotive Collison, So if you are in the area and want to take a look first hand just drop on by! We are working on transporting the engine now, and since I live right down the street, I've already rolled the Z shell down to the Shop. I will Update when the engine gets here.

Not bursting your bubble or anything but will a CD009 gear box (Nissan Part # 32010-CD000) hold up? They are strong but if you rip on the throttle they can be not so strong, even with a upgraded clutch. I can sell you a much more promising transmission, an R154. Collins makes an adapter plate for these as well to UZ engine set.

R154 = 295,000円V which current exchange is V$1 = 109円V so about V$2654.55~ shipping should be about V$200 if it is shipped by Sea Freight.

Price includes :
5MT is a retrofit kit.

Gear Box body
Gear Box mount
Outside Gear Box mount collar
Propeller/drive shaft Front & Rear
ORC Twin Plate Clutch set (ORC 409D clutch)
Clutch pedal
Clutch pedal bracket
Clutch master cylinder
Master piping
Operating cylinder (Aftermarket by ORC)
Operating conversion set
Much disk remaining 3.5-4.0 mm
Side lever
Side wire 1 axis

It was removed from JZX100.


It had been used without problems to remove.

It is used a goods.
There are scratches and dirt.

It is used goods, but there is no problem in such function.

The guys at Green Slip were generous enough to purchase my standard transmission in order to help me pay for this, so you have yourself a deal! Thank you for the heads up if you hadn't told me this I probably would have been going through these transmissions like a hot knife through butter! I have contacted Collins and they will be sending the correct adaptor plate to me no charge, since they hadn't sent the 350z conversion one yet.


And you aren't bursting my bubble, I am always open to new ideas, trades, and part-outs/sale when I have the money! Thanks again I cannot wait for everything to arrive. I managed to keep the stock differential out of my Z, do you know anyone willing to trade for the appropriate one to fit my new drivetrain?

6/5/15- Update!

The motor got here last week and me and the guys at the shop were able to throw it in. The 2uz was actually out of a Lexus, not the Toyota as the ad had led me to believe. We gave it a full rebuild including new gaskets (oem of course) and all fresh fluids. About 2 days ago, all of the drivetrain parts that Mister_Softee sent over made it to the shop, and made it's way onto the car yesterday. Upon the first test fire we found something out.. this motor sounds like an absolute monster!





Today me and team took the car over to MPI to run a couple of tests and to break in the new motor. Mitch threw in a used TRD differential for this test day, And since he is the better drifter (currently lol) I let him take the first hit. I am so excited to get behind the wheel of this baby when it is closer to completion. I am still looking for a Dif that fits a Toyota JZ drivetrain if any of you have one available for cheap! Here are pics from testing today:

Damn! Nice to see you get the Z rolling on it's own power. That UZ fits like a glove. Makes me tempted to buy a 2UZ for myself...hehehehe.

7/11/16- Guess who's back!

Hey guys long time no see! I've been away due to family and work, but please believe I haven't forgot about you guys or the UZ 350z That was collecting dust in my garage lol. In my absence I was able to collect a little bit of money (Ive missed 5 Mondays) and splurged a little on the build

V$565 x 5 paydays= V$2,825

So, V$2,825 + V$216= V$3,041

I am sure you guys are curious to what I have purchased and here it is..





I've been searching the internet for weeks and FINALLY got my hands on a Legimate Fabulous GT Sports kit for the Nissan z33! This 5-piece kit included front bumper, rear bumper, both left and right skirts, and the Fabulous rear wing. I don't know how I feel about the wing, so this will be for sale in the Parts section soon. As you can also see, I Bought some clear taillights actually off a 08 350z.



I was also fortunate to get some more track time down a MPI, I didn't snap a lot of pics, but here are some teasers, I am actually starting to hold a decent line through the corners. Practice really does pay off! I need to have a session with some of you guys so you can hear this Toyota/Lexus v8 roar!





The ZN6

Along with all the greatness that is the Fairlady, It have brought me to the sad part of today. After careful consideration, I have decided to sell my Fr-s. "But Nic, you JUST bought that car not too long ago" yeah I know, but I feel as if someone else can get more enjoyment out of it than I can just using it as a daily driver, and with my new drift car inching closer to completion, I feel like I need to go in a different direction. This Car will be in the Used car section as well, But will be traded in at a dealer if no one bites. Price is V$15,000 more info in the for sale post. here are the last few Pictures outside of work.








V$3,041- V$2,500 (bodykit& taillights shipped)= V$541

Lol true :))

Yes i agree with you, but hopefully someone else can bring this amazing car to it's full potential. I feel bad keeping it as a near stock daily and it wouldn't have been touched untill the Z33 was pretty much finished. And man I love Toyota v8s. I really want a ls400 (celsior) but i haven't found a decent enough one on the market (no mod lol). You should for sure do a v8 build!

7/18/16

New Daily:

With little offers on the Frs, I decided to sell it back to a dealership rather than let it collect dust. The final drive was a sad one, but for old times sake I did get her a little sideways lol. I will miss the car, and may the next owner have just as much fun as I did. The dealer ended up taking it off my hands for V$15,500 which is a little more than what I was asking, a rare occurrence in the used car market. That, along with a nice payday, put me in a fantastic position to buy this new car:







Say hello to my new 2004 Acura RSX! I got this baby for a steal and only with 83,xxx miles on the clock. It is the Type-S variant, which is noted by the badge and Artic Blue Pearl paint, which I've recently learned only came on the Zenki model Type-S's. I bought this car cause the insurance is much cheaper than that on the fr-s. In addition, it is a little roomier on the inside and is a hatchback, giving me more carrying capacity should I need to go pick up a part or two. I can now just throw them in the back and not worry about it. Also, Its got a sunroof! (not pictured) So far, I am extremely happy with this purchase, and cant wait to start working away on it when I am alittle further along in the z33 build.

Project z33:

Speaking of z33, with the purchase of the dc5, I have plenty of money left over to spoil the drift build. Here is what I now have on order:

List
Megan Adjustable Upper Control arms- V$320
326power D1 Spec coilovers- V$2200
Megan Rear Camber Arms- V$160
Finish wielding in rollcage- V$100
z33 badges and rear bumper lights (from salvage yard)- V$80


I am also on the search for some wheels for the z33. but we will have to see how much I can get those for ;)

Nice nice! An RSX is a fun car to rip. I'm looking at the parts list that you need and I am able to get you a set of 326power Chakuriki (same thing, just more adjustability).

@marcus915 I've already ordered those parts listed above but I am more than willing to cancel the order on the coils if I can get the ones you are selling, how much do you want for them? I wouldn't mind paying alittle extra for more adjustability. Also, I've been on JP auctioning websites looking for some wheels, do you have any in storage you want to part ways with? I am not in the market for anything too specific and I'd rather give you my money than risk getting scammed lol
