Thank you for the support! Yeh I know the feeling. Hopefully this time the engine lives long so I can focus on life and actually save up some money. It's hard being a college student working for bills and then having to dump money on a car.
Haha yeah I'm trying to focus on a career, but I really need this car to work so I can daily it and sell my daily. It's still currently at the machine shop, I'm wondering should I keep the stock rods or upgrade to forged, tuner said I can keep the stock and I would love to to save money.@okabbara892 Heh, I remember those times... nobody I knew was playing with 2jz's back then though, we were all dreamers at the time.
Getting yourself set up for a good career now will hopefully pay off later. Good friend of mine (otherwise known as the bastard that got me into these cars in the first place) stepped away from the car guy game during his college years, and he's very well off for it now, and making up for it in a good way.
Haha yeah I think I'll keep a daily, never know what happens. I really hope this doesn't happen again on fresh new forged pistons. Is there anything that could cause this other than the tune ofcourse?Honestly stock rods will be fine for a car you plan on running as a daily. Yeah it's one of those "while you're in there" things but that's a lot of money without defined high hp goals. I'd say worry about that down the road.
If it is at all feasible to keep your current daily... I would. Supras are great to daily and all, but I've never once regretted having another car on the side.
