Long day...

Well I was able to get the parts car (Mark II) 98% dismantled today. Also got the clutch master cylinder installed on the Cresta. Was hoping to have the Engine re-installed but theres a little bit of maintenance I want to do on it first so I decided to just hold off. Also would be much easier to install the clutch line (from master to slave) w/ the engine out of the car (a part I don't even have yet). Long day. Didn't get as much as I wanted accomplished but made good progress. The amount of goodies on this car is awesome. Even came w/ a tourer v bible. Here's a few pics my buddy Z took check him out @ Route16 Z ... thanks bro

Engine Swap.....

Is halfway done....

So I was able to get a bit of work done today. With the help of my buddies at the shop, I got the motor pulled from the Cresta. We then started tearing down the MarkII. We pulled the tranny, and drained all the fluids w/ the exception of fuel. Car still has over a half a tank of premium / HI-OC which I plan to ciphhen out, then I'll pull the fuel pump and motor. Also pulled the swaybars, underbracing, and muffler. Tomorrow I'll pull the engine and the rest of the suspension components. Then it's off to the junkyard for the donor/parts car. Hopefully tomorrow I can start putting the cresta together. I need to install the clutch master and line. I just ordered a clutch. Once that comes in, the care should be on the road. It's coming together slowly but surely. It feels good to be back in the mix (^.^).

(LATE) Spring Cleaning....

So I got off work a little early today and decided it'd be a good idea to clean out Jeremy's locker (that I also store parts in.... one of my many locations), to make room for the parts from the parts car. With the help of Jeremy and another buddy, Josh, It only took about two hours. Also took pics of my 33 Wheels that a few people have asked about. The are still for sale. That's about it. Will start tearing down the markII (hopefully) this coming weekend.

90 love......

So the next few posts will be about 90's... I will be posting about a friend who's sellin his 600+HP twin Td06 1.5J Cresta later.......

I recently acquired a parts car to help w/ my Cresta build. Pretty awesome... Here is a short parts list of what came on/with the car. Its a 90 MarkII tourer-v. It has:
low KM engine w/ fuel tuneup/maintenance just done (gaskets/waterpump/belts/sparkplugs etc)
Nightpager upper radiator pipe
HPI intercooler
HPI Ypipe from turbines
80mm Straightpipe muffler
Greddy emanage
Greddy e01 boost controller
Blitz turbo timer
works bell quick release hub
330mm momo race
jzx100 shifter/gate

I'm sure there's more stuff that I'm forgetting. The only thing the car didnt come w/ was a clutch. Almost all of these parts are duplicates (I already own them) so I'm going to be selling them to get the Cresta on the road (it still needs a clutch and a diff). Spent the day today pulling all of the electronics. Will try to pull the motor Sunday. I'll make sure I get pics up then.
