  1. So this happened. ive purchased a toyota granvia with the 1kzte to shoehorn into the wags . il keep the box and fuel system also But to keep with the restomod theme, i plan to not make it look like a kz . Also will make custom intake/exhaust manifolds and intercooler. plan on keeping the a/c. I have an old aftermarket under dash unit
  2. I got 2.0 done today . Uses an old truck air tank shortened up as the firebox . 4 and 3 inch air inlets and 3inch outlet. Heat shield around chamber pipe to keep it hot
  3. So i dabble in charcoal cooking and have a stack of wood (blue gum,apple) so thought why not make my own charcoal. after some youtube-ing i found a style i liked and could make. its made from a 55kg grease can . With a 3inch inlet ,4 inch fire box and 3inch flue which is all in the center and sealed. Then a tube from the top of the drum to the firebox inlet. This lets the wood gas self fuel . takes around 4/5 hours to make a drum load. currently working on 2.0 , more fuel more air more heat
  4. I put the crown on the dyno at SAS here in chch . To get the motor running right as it was only road tuned . 2 hours on the hub dyno and i got this... 200hp aircleaner on 226hp aircleaner off im happy with it, i wasnt chasing HP , its just a big jap cruiser with abit of power and noise vid below https://youtu.be/cMzoZRc_0OM
  5. After 6 years of it being off the road its finally certed ,wof and reg . so stoked to have reached this point now its off to the dyno then i can enjoy it
  6. KBS coatings do a black heat proof paint
  7. I got to use the crown for my wedding, ran perfectly for the big day . still not legal......
  8. Export jdm grille ! Yetch told me it was a super tidy grille. Did you notice that the mounts on the headlight surrounds for the grille are different, i just drilled new holes . by far the best grille besides a jdm front
  9. Got the old girl out to the december OS meet. Was great catching up and meeting new people thanks to cool cruising photography for these pics
  10. Not alot has happened of late for old dusty @horndog came round and helped pull the motor/gearbox for his latest ms55 project. turned out to be an easy job, removed about 12 heavily rusted bolts and the front end comes off , motor and box slipped straight out i just now need a 1kz and auto column box to chuck in the wagon .which il do restomod work too so it looks some what factory
  11. So i have my wedding coming up ,start of next year.that means the crown is the main wedding car. I cleaned up and painted my ms53 steelies, added some rather large 215/75 maxxis whitewalls and refurbing the factory supersaloon hubcaps, even going to put gold resin back into the crown emblem were its missing. still not legal or tuned ...... maybe next year will be the year
  12. And fully ilegal but i like driving it so i took it to work on monday
  13. Managed to get the crown to muscle car madness in Rangiora on the Saturday. Alot of interest from people . (Only photo i have from the show which i found on FB, if any one got any send them through) Also chopped up my factory JDM ms75 tash to fit in a speedhut 3 3/8 Electrial speedo. Easy to install and wire up. Doesnt look to far out of place .
  14. would i need to keep odo for a wof? or i was looking at this? frequency to voltage converter with a dc motor into the back
