Post by: Coburn on April 10, 2009, 11:01:03 AM
If D is regular, and D1 is beginner pro, then how high does it go? D4? Or just D1?

I hate people that get their first car and it's all new and s**t... My car is on my pictures on my myspace: myspace.com/coburn1016

My dad has a 1968 Pontiac LeMans with a big block 400 in it :) He said he'll give it to me for my 21st birthday if I keep my head clean :D

Title: Re: Going for my dreams
Post by: Coburn on April 13, 2009, 11:08:52 PM
I'm hopin' I can fix it up before I'm 21.

And I love my mountain views.


Title: Re: Going for my dreams
Post by: rattmansam on April 14, 2009, 05:29:32 PM
SWEET!! it could use a little work but damn thats nice. and yeah throw some cash into it before you're 21 and make sure to syphon the gas out if it hasnt been started in over a year cause the gas gets really nasty and i'd say change the oil first thing lol. sorry just ive been around cars that sat for like 2 years and went to start them up and when we did they started to get screwed up cause of old gas with stuff in it and also nasty oil.


Title: Re: Going for my dreams
Post by: Coburn on April 14, 2009, 07:03:59 PM
Yea, I'm gunna drain it before I do anything. Probably right when I rebuild the engine in November (Auto 2 class). It's going to be a bad F'er when I'm done with it. I plan to save my money from the summer and put some into the engine, some into the general body (you can see the hood needs bent back into shape), and the rest into a smokin' paint job.


Title: Re: Going for my dreams
Post by: rattmansam on April 14, 2009, 09:28:48 PM
it does need some work but that is one beautiful car there.

Post by: Snafupossum on October 23, 2009, 09:09:51 PM
well since the site was messed up, my whole build thread went POOF. here is a quick summary of what happened:

hit a wall at the track
guy cutting through grocery store parking lot hit me in front
got a bare shell since my unibody was messed up horribly bad
built the car from the ground up
it runs now and has been a daily driver for a couple months

just a couple pics to get a idea..

drove car with little to no problems for almost a year
bought a second 240sx same year to build up
had full 97-98 front end minus front bumper
had bought a wheel almost identical to post above :)
due to certain circumstances I had to sell everything :(

Might be getting me a mkIII supra in about a month just depends on if my friend gives me the money. He wants to buy it and make it fast so when he comes back from his next 2 tours in iraq he can be chillin. He's a marine btw. Hes a sgt in the marines and said hey I want a supra find me one and I'll send you the money. I told the guy to hold it for me for like 2 months and he said ok. Lol. Wants 2200 for it. It's a 92.


Title: Re: Going for my dreams
Post by: Snafupossum on September 24, 2011, 03:00:06 PM
Means its probably a 7m motor, I would steer away from it unless you put a 1jz or if your friend has enough money a 2jz. 7m's are very notorius for headgasket problems and as soon as it starts to overheat the head warps and for some reason these motors never wanna reseal even after the head has been redecked. Just a heads up.

I know. It's a 1JZ but my friend wants a 2JZ anyway. He called me today and said might not be able to go through with it..... I is sad but ohh well. Would have been cool.

Post by: Snafupossum on September 25, 2011, 02:32:21 AM
He could always do a na 2j then go turbo. As long as he isn't expecting 500hp and na block will be just fine. I persoanlly know of a couple people that have/are doing the na-t 2j.

I discussed it with him he ships back out next week and he said that it's probably gonna be at least another 6 months so we'll see. I would have gone JDM 2JZ-GTTE so I could swap internals for forged and a different set of cams and runs a GT45 ball bearing turbo. But alas it might be postponed or might never happen. The guy who had the supra already sold it. So definitely gonna have to find another one.

Usdm 2j-gte is stronger then the jdm version.

The 98 VVT-i version is actually the strongest. It's out of I forget what car but they are available through a few places.
