So uhm.. Yeah. AYOOOO.

Yes. I'm back! It's been a while hasn't it?
Some of you are probably wondering what has happened in those last months? If you follow Skip's thread you probably already know why I wasn't really updating anything... WE (ALSO WARD) GOT A GARAGE! We are now known as

Garage Contraband密輸品 !!

BUT.. About my old cars. I sold both my S14 and my S13 Silvia project car to the guys at Powervehicles at Ebisu for 12.000V$. I kept the 180sx for now since Im not sure if I might rebuild it or just sell it aswell.. I just wasn't feeling it anymore for some reason. I did end up buying another project tho.. ;)

A crusty old GX70 Mark II.. lol



Definitley has seen better days. Judging by the undercarriage and the hacked up exhaust and suspesion this might have been a really cool shakotan build a couple of years ago.. who knows. Now it sits in our driveway with its 160.000kms down the clock, a blown engine and a messed up exterior.. But I guess still kinda nice enough for 1.500V$?



The only thing that still kinda looks nice is the interior. Actually still looks perfectly intact for its age and mileage.



The plans for this? I'm gonna let you know soon enough... First things first is getting that exterior fixed and getting a new engine in there.

ENGINE CHECK~UP!!

I'm back again with another update on the Mark II project!
On further inspection on the old 1G-E engine I noticed.. well.. It's hardcore fugged. So we did what was needed - THROW THAT B IN THE TRASH!



Since I was in the need of a new engine and I'm still in good contact with the guys at TEC-ART'S I asked them if they maybe have a good and semi-powerful engine that I could swap into this heavy thing.. When they went through the list of engine that they had in their shop my eyes went bigger when they told me this - 4AGE 20v Blacktop. O boi. Yes this kinda goes against the whole "semi-powerful" rule but I just couldn't get the idea out of my head.. So..



Here it is! Its also completely stock. The engine came out of an AE111 that had a pretty hefty rear end collision. The engine has like 80kms on it but was completely overhauled by the TEC-ART'S guys. It costed me about 2.5k with the engine harness and the 5-speed gearbox.



Even tho I will end up restoring the whole body of the Mark II I still wanted to see if everything fits or if I have to make some major custom work to make it sit. Obviously there will be some custom work since the 4A-GE never came with the Mark II. So I hit up Skip if he could help me just throwing everything together pretty roughly so I can get a better look on what I have to work with heh.



Unsuprisingly enough - IT FITS! The engine bay is pretty big so there more than enough space for this little four-banger. Well.. We did end up removing it again after that heh (sorry skip)

Now that I think about it, it's kinda like a 4 door AE86.
Can't wait to see it actually in the car (mostly because it means I won't have to help take it out again :>)

A four door AE86 as skip said haha, I am still wondering what will you do with it, low shakotan build or something more "sporty", I guess we will see, also that engine fits really good even tho I would have wanted NA JZ as 11k said, but I guess we will have to persuade skip to do that to his Supra now. :))

Shakotan Shakotan. Well If you think about swapping one day. 1JZ's come quite low at yahoo... Easy score at 500. Just in case.
I really look forward what will happen to this GX71!

Thanks guys for the kind words! The 4A-GE will definitley stay for now but a 1JZ might be a good idea in the future.. who knows
