    Little bit more done, progress is slow at the moment but still plugging away at it. Had some new parts come thanks to H-tune and titan motorsports. Nice adjustable exhaust cam gear, the ATI titan v2 crank damper and a gates kevlar cam belt. Just need to order a new alternator belt and start sorting the finer details out.

    My 2002 is200 daily driver build thread

    Only just seen this, get a build thread going in the build section and keep the updates coming. Will be interesting to see how it transforms

    Now that would be fun! They may fair better off the line with the way modern auto cars are set up and get the power down but i should reel them in once rolling

    😂😂😂 ah i see, the way you said it i thought it had been messed with and put back in the incorrect position and tbh it does look odd like that. Thanks though as now you have officially modified my my car and added to the build 👍

    Mmmmmm ive just been sat in the car as those buttons was bugging me........ but i cannot swap them around, the trc button has a ridge at the top of it and will only go in the end locations so im guessing its correct where it is?

    🙈 you know i never even spotted that!! Glad you have pointed this out though 😂 im hoping to use the traction control button for something else further down the line..... thinking of putting line lock on her for when i do get her down the drag strip and use that button to activate the solenoids

    Got a little bit more done but not without issues and blood shed, not so long ago this came........ Fantastic quality, easy enough straight bolt on part and jobs a good un......... nah not quite! Turns out i didnt quite read the ebay description properly! This is not designed for the jzx110 shifter housing which i have so the bolt holes dont line up, also the lower part of the gearstick with the pivot ball is not long enough. This came from australia i looked for an alternative or seperate part for the jzx110 but no luck, not wanting it to go to waste or trouble trying to sell it I then had the idea of having the billet block welded on and cutting and lengthening the pivot..... whilst cutting the pivot with a grinder it snagged on the metal, jumped out of my hand and hit my leg!!!! Needless to say it left a very deep cut which needed a trip to A&E, 4 stitches later i was out!! So left it a week then cracked back on with it. job done, bolted it back on the box but it just wasnt going to work, there was no neutral and the throw for the gears was rediculous!! Literally 1 inch from being in 1st to being in 2nd! If i tried to drive the car like this i would have probably blown the motor as it would have been very easy to miss shift! The extra hight of the block and length of the pivot had made it even more of a short shift. So back to the drawring bored, i cut the billet block back off and also cut the pivot back down. I then cut off the block that was on the shifter housing for the standard shifter and had the billet block welded on in its place, also had the pivot welded to the correct length. I didnt get any pictures of this bit as i was getting quite annoyed at the whole thing but once fitted it worked! The billet block has a slightly higher pivot point than the standard so still getting the affect of a short shift but this time i have a feel of neutral and the shifts are perfect! Also have to mention i had the gear stick straightened as there was a kink in it and i wanted an OEM look to it and also had to get a machine shop to turn down the top of it with a lathe as the leather boot would not go over it. Added the finishing touch with the 5 speed plaque Looking more like a car again now, getting me more excited! Ive also been busy making my oil return line for the turbo, -10AN PTFE teflon line with fittings and using a boostlab extended flange to clear the manifold flange. Pretty easy to make used the proper AN spanners and blocks so all nice and tight.

    😂 hes good friend of mine, good job really. Tbh he has a mazda rx7 running big power so to him this will probably be quiet 😂 it was so loud that when we set off from the nurburgring he told us he got himself some ear plugs from the track as he just could not put up with it anymore 🙈

    Got the exhaust on the car today, just positioned it for now as the rear subframe has got to be drilled for the 1 hanger so i attached it with some mole grips. Also still needing a down pipe so there will be a little more measuring and chopping to be done once they come. Also tried it with the rear bumper back on just to see if it cleared, the tail pipe does stick out too far so i think im going to cut around and inch n half off.

    Yeh its going to be too loud for probably every track, im going to be running open dump pipe or screamer pipe too so even louder than the exhaust...... but i am looking into maybe a different rear silencer section incase i want to do track days and also figure out a way of maybe changing from external venting wastegate to feeding it back into the exhaust to quieten it down.
