        Its always a little awkward being in the Oil business, overseas, and talking to people on Gumtree. You get the picture.
        Hahaha, that would be awkward!

          Will a V160 fit behind a 1GZ anyway? Hmmm

                Yeah, spend most of your time trying to convince them it's not a scam :D

                  Yeh, I do have a sad like for those fokkers too... Probably not as much as these though. I even like interior, better than rx8, reminds me of nopics 3.

                  Also, that dude that did the review on the rx8 got into my head, can't help but notice how many triangles they have now.

                    Although I have to admit an RX8 with an LS removes the gay bit.

                      Goes without saying, would need rotardedness removed and replaced with Ls.

                      Rx8/Ls1 would be an awful lot like bastard spawn of mine and nopics 3. Awesome but confused retarded drunk redneck awesome... Which unfortunately resembles myself now sans the drunk.

                      2Jayzeegeetee Is200 less confused retarded redneck and more geeky specced guy in a suit with a twitching eye that'll kick you in the balls though. Which is also awesome.

                        So raised the car up today to pass rego. Also had to get a new tyre. But the cunts at the tyre shop didn't call me back when they were done so I have to rego the car tomorrow.

                        Shifty got stuck into the front cut and took off the intake and then got a face full of R134A gas! LOL

                        Just got a 100,000km kit from fleabay for $400,

                        I'll still deciding on what turbo.. Two options, get the car up and running with the yum cha GTX35R or hold off the conversion for a while but purchase a proper Garrett GTX35R..

                        I heart is saying the Garrett. I can drive the IS300 as it is for quite a while, that way I can just build the GTE slowly.. and maybe low ball Rz on that other Getrag lol.

                              So I ordered a ebay special intercooler the other day, turned up today.

                              http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/120714178446
                              710x200x90mm with 65mm inlet and outlet.

                              I measured up the inlet and outlet, 2.5" is a bit of a stretch, more like 2.2" as it looks like they measured the outside edge of the casting.

                              Still, for $200 delivered, it's not fucking bad!

                                Is that a treadstone mani? Either way, have it ported and cleaned up internally. I found the one on mine didn't help spool much and a bit of a clean up would probably help.
