    Gday you mob!

    I have been on these forums since they started, wait, hang on, the OLD forums. Name is Phill. Have built/owned:-
    - a pearl white (not pink you idiots!) TA23 fitted with 18RGE
    - fitted the above with 1GGTE/W57/Pug & Hilux brake/ hilux LSD combo back in 1999
    - wrote the above off into a shop front (not my finest moment)
    - pulled said good bits from above wreck and fitted into a sky blue RA23
    - then rebuilt from ground up said sky blue RA23 with Motec ECU, twin GT28's from N1 GTR, garrett bar and plate cooler, custom plenum, all the other associated shit.

    Last i heard (yes its still running!) has made 453rwhp, and weighs 960kg without driver, but with single T3/T4 shitta turbo. Currently on third owner since i sold it in January 04. For the last 6 years have been driving a HZJ80 Landcruiser. For the last 2.5 years i have been travelling around the country in it and a camper trailer.

    Anybody got pics of my old girl? Number plate would have been EFI.20L NSW
    I need some motivation for a "new" build up.

    So Rod, Max (Nark), Mos, Darren (will be back in Syd soon for a drink old mate!), you mob still "loitering" around here?

    hi all

    my name's Ben, and i currently don't own a Toyota (booooooo, right?)

    i just bought a C34 Nissan Stagea, but a mate just bought an ST215 Caldina, which has me interested in getting one

    as you can probably tell, i'm into the jap imports

    anyway, i'm here to learn and hopefully contribute where i can

    will mostly be lurking around Caldina and maybe some Toyota Chaser threads (love the 1JZ )

    see you around

    cheers

    Hi guys i'm Jesse, I occasionally browse this forum but thought i'd introduce myself anyway. I drive a 1988 AE92 FX-GT 4AGE 2 door hatch. Pretty stock apart from a few minor mods, i'm hoping to upgrade to a JZX90 mark 2 or a 100 chaser Tourer V later this year.. Its been a good little daily car so far though.

    My other toy is not a toyota its a 1990 Rx7 FC3S series 5 turbo, long list of mods: extended port, dowelled, T04 high flowed turbo (T04 front cover) microtech LT10, coil overs, half cage, Mazdaspeed 2 way LSD etc etc its been a gradual on road build up. hopefully bring it out to the track this year for some track days etc.

    I work at CMI toyota city branch in adelaide so if any of you guys need hard to get bits (if you can still buy them from toyota ) or import parts, TRD parts etc i can help!! give me a call 82385544 ask for Jesse.

    Hi,

    Welcome aboard you guys.

    Jesse, here's your first order... a rear tail light assembly for an RA25, plus a full set of synchro-bands for a P51 gearbox.

    Gday Everyone

    Scott is my name, im from Phillip Island.

    Ive been a diehard Ford man pretty much all of my life, that has changed in a big way..

    Im about to buy a 91 UZZ31 Soarer off a relative, to be honest until I had seen(and driven) my brother in laws psycho 1UZ-FE powered cressida I had always thought Toyotas were mundane
    How wrong was I???

    Im like a reformed Bogan Ive seen the light!!!

    Looking at getting my Soarer in about 2-3 months, I am amazed at the whole new world of ideas and after seeing what I had no idea of previously, I reckon Im hooked.

    Looking forward to learning all I can and hopefully meeting some good people along the way

    Cheers
    Scott

    Hello people, Simon here from Western Sydney. I got recommended by Vito and Justin [not even sure of their nicks yet!]
    Thought i'd get in on this great community here. I'll accompany my post with a few pics of my car.

    I currently drive a JZS147 Aristo which is nice and clean as they should be. No fancy kit or lips here!

    Discreet mods include;
    - Federal 59s, 245/45 on a set of TSW alloys.
    - Stainless Mandrel bent dump pipe to a free-flow cat and standard mufflers/twin tips.
    - High flow panel filter, 3" intercooler piping and FMIC

    The rest is pretty much stock, Internal mods include replaced sub in the rear + amp, stock HU with aux wired in.

    Great to be a part of the community! Hope to see everyone around for a track day or two
    : D




    Cheers,
    Simon.
