What I did to my toyota today?
« on: May 03, 2012, 10:05:31 PM »
Pretty successful on the last forum figured I'd start it back up again and kinda update a few today's ago what I've done since the last forum


Got Trd/swift springs in a trade legit as fuck
Got some nrcas camber is legit.
Decided I may have a bent sway bar possibly passenger side control arm doesn't fully drop when jacked up strut stays compressed a little that's the only conclusion I can come to of something with tension

"I'm fat and he's Asian.  Crazy food is bound to come up in conversation."
      "wait, am I the Asian?!"
"yeah bro.  Yeah, I think so."
      "I'm white!"
"visually, yes.  But so is Takumi Fujiwara."

Finished up getting my new water lines in.  The Mishimoto has a bigger inlet and outlet so I had to make new lines.
Why do noobs always call their hatch a hatchi but no one ever calls their coupe a couchi?

Changed out my oil catch cardboard to some fresh cardboard. Not really changing something to the toyota, but under it.

Because of the tight clearance I modified a wrench to tighten down my velocity stacks inside the new box.  13mm wrench+blowtorch+screwdriver

Drove it home for the first time.  I picked up a hoopty '91 corolla sedan for $1300.  The hunt for another 86 continues.

Spiffy.  as soon as the paint is dry, I get to stuff it back into the car.

Turns out the splines on the steering column for the steering wheel hub and shift knob threads on the '91 corolla are the same as the 86.  As a result I swapped over my hub, quick release, steering wheel, and shift knob from the 86, lol.

Filled up with some petrol and took a cruise for 22miles.  8)

Tested out my cassette player with some old Rush. Sounded good after a few minutes of scrambled mess. Might need to clean it out.

Re-mounted my oil cooler after a few coats of paint.  Then measured, cut, and fitted my AN lines.  Taking my car to a couple body shops this afternoon to see when someone can fit me in before the next track day on June 2-3.

Ordered a RS3871 turbo, a catch can, and 2 12" Fans from Vitaly two days ago. Got notification that the turbo and the catch can are on their way, but the fans are back ordered. Sad face.

My wife asked me to take the garbage out; I opened my kitchen/garage door and I stopped mid- garage and looked at her... intensely... passionately... then I lightly whispered "baby, gimme more time, we are almost there..."


I teared up.
