    Hey all. Been a while since I've been on here but I thought I'd make a build thread for my latest build. I never kept memories of building my last drift car so I'll just do this one. Currently in the process of throwing a LSA crate motor from Holden into a R32 gtst. I have a L98 and both T56 and TR6060 on hand also so not sure which box to go with just yet. I'll be making having mounts and exhaust done custom and will be using the GM engine controller kit and accessory drive kit. Plans currently for the common oil starvation issue with the LS series in high G forces are Moroso baffled and trapdoor sump and 4L accusump. Don't have many photos for now as everything is in pieces. Will update as things progress.
  2. 1984 Toyota Tarago V8 I have been thinking about selling this for awhile now, So will put it up to see how it goes, Not fussed if it sells really, but cant really afford so many toys, I have had this van for about 5 years, The motor conversion has been in it for about 2-3 years, It was originaly a 3Y 4cyl and 5 speed manual...... It was far to slow....... It now has a mild 308 Holden V8, The motor was built by "The Brock Shop" a few years ago, It has been very well looked after and very regulary serviced, It has ported heads with bigger valves, springs etc, ACL Flat top pistons, Fairly lumpy cam (unsure specs) Edelbrock performer manifold, 600 Holley, MSD Coil, Crane cams ignition unit, Crane cams electrionic dizzy, hi volume oil pump, Rollmaster timing gear, new hi-torque gear reduction starter motor, brand new balanced flexplate with new ARP bolts, usual good gear, It has a 3000rpm Hi-stall convertor, trimatic auto box, new Hurst pro ratchet shifter, Running Commodore diff (3:23 ratio, open, really needs 3:89) It has twin radiators with thermo fans, stainless steel flexable bottom radiator hose, (sprintcar style) It is running a twin exhaust, has stock exhaust manifolds (not gotten to modifying extractors yet, But have big ones to go with it) has twin 2.25" exhaust to 2 "Hooker Headers Aero chamber" mufflers, then twin 2.5" tailpipes, sounds great, The van is currently making about 200rwhp, was making 185rwhp with an extremely restrictive exhaust but is now changed, Will make more as it needs a tune, This will be getting done when I find time etc, It is Mod plated for the conversion and registered as a 308 with the current motor, Registration due in January 2013, The van itself does have some rust in the usual Tarago places, and the paint is a rough, few minor dents etc, would need a paint job to look the part again, Also needs a windscreen as it has a crack in it, but makes for an awesome sleeper as is, I am still fixing it up slowly and will continue to do so untill sold, It is a pretty cool cruiser and gets lots of looks (many unsure and confused ones) and definatly a whole lot of fun to drive, It is still an 8 seater van so you can go cruising with 7 of your mates May swap or part trade with cash either way, open to offers Will swap drifter, S14, something tough, Make an offer Asking $4500 ono (dont offer me $2500 then try to tell me you know more about my car than I do!) Car is Located in Redlands area, Brisbane, 0481109712 The bullbar is no longer on it but it does come with it if wanted,

  8. 1990 Ford F150 XLT Hi Guys, Selling this beastly truck for my missus. I dont have all the details, but can find them out easy enough. Here is what I know of the top of my head: 1990 F150 XLT RWD Injected 351 Windsor crate motor with around 2000kms on it, still only on run in tune for 98RON. Mild cam Microtech ECU 5 speed towie box (not sure which model) Alloy radiator Lowering kit from the states, dropped 3" front, 5" rear Custom exhaust Paint, panel and interior not the best, but good for a rat truck. Goes very well. Will go better with a proper tune. Is still registered as LPG, but was removed when the motor was swapped out. Does have aircon setup which is 95% complete, just a few little bits and pieces needed to get it running (I'm not sure what exactly, possible receiver dryer and some wiring) Im sure there are alot of things I have missed, but ask away and I will answer as best as I can. Perfect for a tow vehicle, if you want a mad work truck, or just because SOLD!!!

  11. This is the Toyota Celsior version not the Lexus! ($3,000) 205,000Km's, Auto, 1UZ V8. No Reg. dead stocker. awesome project. Bought it to as i use to own a highly modified one and was looking to do another one but sadly have other priorities I need to do first so it must go. The motor runs perfect, i am the 2nd australian owner. I have all the import documents still when it was first brought in. I have had a good look over the car and all it really requires is a new battery and bonnet struts as it does not stay open (can be regassed). The factory airbag suspension system still works awesome! get an aftermarket height control and off you go with adjusting the height as high or low as you want. The rear right bag is a little worn but the car comes with new set of the airbag suspension struts to replace with. I am looking for a quick sale no swaps please. I am located SE Melbourne. Would prefer if you could contact my number, text or call. as i will not be on the net much this week. 0439358656

  13. Well, this thing looks awesome! Its coming with three engines now; Not sure the 4 banger would do the car justice. The LT1 would be a bit of fun though! I reckon the interior looks fantastic also! Very high-tech Audi-ish. What do you think? More info on Chevrolet.com and pics came from Autoblog.

    VH41DET r32 Hi, I've spent the afternoon searching the forums for info on a vh 41 conversion into an r32. I've found lots of topics on people doing it in racecars, or people talking about doing it but never posting the finished product. I'm just wondering if anyone has done it in a street car and if there are any businesses experienced in doing it? It's something i'm very interested in but the quotes i've gotten locally are insane because no one has done it before. Just hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks!
  15. When i first purchased my r33 in November of 2010 it was in a somewhat sad state of affairs, faded (and in parts peeling) gunmetal paint covered the majority of its vulnerable body. The car itself was a 93 E-Ecr33 (that's right folks she's a type S ) and like all type S cars was powered by the non turbo variant of the rb25 and backed by the odd 5 speed auto jatco box. So in short it wasn't exactly a speed demon. It looked something like this when i picked it up (don't let the polish fool you the paint was bad): It wasn't long before i got sick of looking at the horrible flaking off paint and tool the car down to Steve at wrapture stylings and got him to wrap the top half of the car in black (god those rims are bad) After getting sick of being teased left right and centre by practically everyone for the dinner plate chromies (18x7 +43 ) I sourced a set of rims off boost cruising and a week later they were on the car (they look like Veilside Andrews, but are probley fake, I have no idea). Somewhere along the line I picked up a series 2 boot as well. A few months past and after over 220k and multiple trips past that 7k mark on the tacho the poor little rb screamed no more and decided to spin one of the big end bearings, the car remained stationary for over six months while trying to source an engine and after eventually finding one was transplanted into the car over a couple weekends (with more beer consumed then I'd like to think health and safety would approve of). *note nismo sticker for more killerwasps Using the forces of sheer luck the motor started and ran like a dream, this was followed shortly after with another trip down to Wrapture for a full body wrap in chilli red vinyl: Which brings us to September 2012, when after a trip home from power cruise resulted in a very blown up auto and me stuck in 3rd gear limping home, by this stage you can imagine my frustration with this car. But, this broken gearbox became the catalyst that would eventually result in "The Abomination" (as dubbed by SAU Qld) being built. Within weeks I had decided I was through breaking Nissan products and thought I'd start trying to break a few bits of GM gear instead. So it was off to eBay where I sourced a vz ls1 (which proved more costly then first imagined) and a 4l60e auto gearbox to be transplanted into my unsuspecting r33: *part two coming soon
