          you are right but if going single turbo etc would need emissions testing in vic at least at 3K per test, tuning etc etc

              Yeah thank Fuck I'm not in vic! Poor bastards.

              Well picked the car up today, just driving back and currently just have some late lunch at hornsby.

              Car is fuckin awesome! I did have to stop at supercheap Goulburn though to buy some new wipers, stock ones were well past their used by date and jumping across the screen..

              Few scratches here and there but I think most of them will come out with a good polish.





              Has cheap HSD coilovers so I will raise the back a little. But the coilovers are surprisingly ok.

              Better get back on that road though.

                    Wouldn't it be more like a poor man's old IS F?

                      fyi there is a kit out of the states (subframes etc) to allow you to bolt in the 1uz.

                      is200/300 were very well engineered, just underpowered.

                      fyi I have a late altezza digital cluster that would fit your car if you are interested? looks like this:

                      with the oil sender. you can get a carbon face kit for it as well

                        I approve of this product. If only they had brought the wagons out here I'd be doing the same

                          gita wagons are available in nz

                          wonder how feasible it would be to graft the backend onto a local is200/300

                          late gita's were available as awd as well!!

                            Yep, saw one for sale there in what seemed decent nick for $2500 there 2 years ago... Whimper. Looked like an awesome bit of kit for good value.

                            As much as a UZ would be awesome, JZ makes a lot more sense. Stuggling to think of a better cheap, newish, half decent project base than these, awesome cars just begging for more power.

                                Very nice. Will be a good garage companion for the EZ30 turbo wagon. :)
