Whats Next For Your Car?

Recommended Posts

hey guys,

 

basically there is a thread for the jap side of the site, and no doubt they wouldnt care alot about our 4x4 updates so ive created an area just for us :)

as we all know summer is the downtime to pull apart and rebuild our beloved 4b's. making them bigger and better. so basically i've started this up so you can post whats on the agenda or what is currently being done. post up those little updates you do every week or so, even if it is just giving the car a good cut and polish. and try to keep general chit chat to a minimum thumbsup.gif

 

and go!

Just put a RTC damper on the car, which was pretty crap... After ordering it my car used to throw its wheel lock to lock thru mud..

After installing some 33x10.5 muddies I never had the problem again, but had the damper already..

 

Looking at a arb which bar for my 4runner, some roof racks to get the spare out of the back. Engel fridge/freezer for work duties.

 

Then a new motor. a new 22r or if I can find someone with a good detailed write up for a 1uz then I will be going down that path.

 

Tho I have my eye out on a 80 or 100 series wagon in the mean time.

2" Lift, 31x10.5 muddies, on board air compressor and finishing of my roof light bar are on the cards for me over the next few months. Other than that there really isn't a hell of a lot more I can do to the rocky. Maybe a top mount cooler and some boost but it goes well enough as it is. 100kmh on the sand at Kingston FTW. 28mile crossing without dropping tyre pressure because a smart arse mate said the sand was hard packed from the weather FTL.

Manifold is all tacked up ready to be welded just looking for some one to finish welding it up on the cheap! It's a log one.

 

Turbo costed me $820 (2871R) manifold with all flanges, bolts and collectors and abit of 3" pipe for dump pipe cost me $4** still haven't added cost of cooler, piping, air box and oil and water lines... = not cheap!! Just trying to get my cressy finished first.
