    Hoping to make my supra as clean as that some day. Although I am thinking about selling the supra and the cruiser next spring so I can pay this 2.5i off sooner.

    Car is down right now (put a RPS carbon/carbon twin disc in and haven't finished up the final few details) I've had too many other projects going on with other cars but will probably invest some time in it this weekend

    When it debuted they only offered strapped PP's, and many V160 bellhousings died when the straps failed. At the time, they just offered a strapless upgrade at the time, although they may have smartened up and dropped the straps altogether.

    I haven't been involved with the JZ's at all beyond my initial research in 08 and would rather look a fool with outdated info than stay quiet and see a failure happen.

    Did this car come from Cali/west coast somewhere? Looks near identical to a car I seen for sale this spring however it had (at the time) a basic bluish grey cloth interior. Nice notch none the less, that is a cool powerplant/chassis combo :thumbup:.

    Yep, motor built / installed by Lawrence Shipman of LS fabrication (awesome guy / builder). Sold to me and I tore it down immediately changed much of the wiring, audio, front air dam, headlights, paint repair, carbon fiber accents, hood pins, installed a completely new interior from headliner to dynamat, changed the clutch, color sanded and am working on a completely new exhaust system.

    Considering I've spent about $5K on attorney/state fees this year due to traffic violations, I'm going to turn you down unless we are going to the track. (I'm really not that crazy of a driver, just had a string of bad luck this year after an otherwise clean record).

    Nice work! I figured that was the car, I'd like to see it in person some time.My dad mentioned to me that he seen it at Car Craft on Sunday this year (again presuming it was your car). I had to miss it because of work. My dad has a super clean bone stock notch and eying up yours for ideas. He has the same car issues I have where we cannot leave well enough alone.
