    A few pics.

    Stock height and tire size vs the 2.5" lift and 32" tires. I should have parked on concrete for these and tried to get the same camera angle to show the difference better. The uneven gravel throws it off a bit (rear wheel sits in a small rut).




    Front shot


    And another height comparison.



    4 inches taller isn't a huge amount but I wasn't trying to go crazy with it.

    Got given a spare 7M-GTE a few weeks back - so i decided to do a project engine for my Mk3 Supra - project 'go big or go home'

    Machine Work:-

    Cylinder Head Checked for Surface Hardness - TOP PRIORITY
    Drill out & Helicoil Exhaust Stud #6
    Thoroughly clean, remove all traces of viton from head surface with Acetone
    Check & Machine valve seats per TSRM spec
    Polish & de-burr camshaft lobes, check for minimum height.
    Port & polish the head (do that myself with a dremel, die grinder etc)
    Port & polish the inlet & exhaust manifolds, give the exhaust manifold a thermal coating.

    Clean Block thoroughly, remove rotating assy. & have bores checked for ovalling & crosshatch, if possible, avoid boring, just re-hone.
    Have the block surfaced to remove no more than 0.15mm material, preferably to an RA of 30 or better.
    Get block magnafluxed to check for fracturing.
    Get crankshaft checked for oval journals, polish regardless. Plastigage clearances with stock rods & bearings, replace with new.
    Balance whole rotating assembly.


    Components:-

    Full Toyota OEM Engine Gasket Set
    Plastigauge - lots of it!
    Permatex Assembly Lube
    ARP Head Stud Kit
    ARP Main Stud Kit
    ARP Rod Stud Kit
    ACL Duraglide bearings & thrust washers
    Eagle Rods
    CP Pistons
    Ferrea 6000 series Intake & Exhaust valves - stock size
    Ferrea 6000 series valve springs & collets
    Titan Motorsports Adjustable Cam Gears (210N?s)
    Sound Performance SP5557 CEA Turbocharger - bolts to stock manifold
    Aeromotive AFPR Kit
    RC 550CC Injectors
    AEM v2 Engine Management from Driftmotion
    AEM 3.5bar MAP sensor & IAT
    IS300 Coil Packs x 3

    Sure, some people will say - get a 1UZ-FE or 1JZ/2JZ-GTE but to be honest, the 1UZ would be sweet....but no room for forced induction, and the JZ stuff has been done to death - i want something a little different. Nothing wrong with the 7M-GTE - the only reason it has a bad reputation is the amount of cheapasses that buy a Mk3 and beat on it like it's a honda civic.

    Of course, that's just the engine work - i already have HSD coilovers on the car, and looking into big brake options. Will be doing all the chassis repairs and modifications first - including new polybushings for everything including the subframe. May swap out the LSD rear gear set for a 3.91:1 instead of the 3.73:1 i have now.

    I refuse to participate in any debate with creationists because doing so would give them the "oxygen of respectability" that they want.
    Creationists don't mind being beaten in an argument. What matters to them is that I give them recognition by bothering to argue with them in public.

    I picked up a little '98 Isuzu Amigo last month and now I'm wanting to do some mods.
    Mostly want to add a brush guard up front for a meaner look.
    I guess it borrows heavily from the Honda Passport of similar vintage.
    I'll try looking at junk/scrap yards and see if I can find a guard that will fit for cheap.

    I have a GTI, its been mildly modified, coil overs, exhaust, tune, k04 turbo, etc. At 24psi its putting down 340WHP/364WTQ, in a tiny car feels pretty quick.

    Was taking in the scenery in the NH white mountains with a local car club and I made some new friends!


    I wasn't speeding or anything and they were just curious about where all these modified cars came from.

    Most cops like cool cars too. As long as people behave mountain scenic tours can be great fun.
