Hi all, this is my 1J build thread. Progressive pictures til completion and then some!


Mod List:

MKIV Steering Wheel & AFPR kit (DM Kit). Not mentioned


This is the car when i purchased it






Partially taken apart 7MGTE YUCK! This motor was total crap! Gave it away to a friend and this is what was wrong with it. BHD, Rod knock (3 bearings spun), crank was destroyed, head was destroyed, and block was cracked in 3 places! Talk about all issues with the 7M in one motor!



The Day i picked up it, i'm the dork in gray and my boy Robin in white. My white supra in the backround (RIP)






The car sat about 1 YR while i gathered parts and was stripping the engine bay of the car for more money. After that year it was moved to my friends house were we pulled the 7M (sorry no pictures of this). It was then moved to a garage shortly after.




Shelby GT350! under the cover next to me. YOU have no idea how nervous i was working on my car in this garage. The kicker was, this was one of 2 in the 5 bay garage and i was next to both!.


Some pictures of my KSport Coilovers




Cleaned up the engine bay and started to hoist it and try to put it in. Took 4 tries after the third i wanted to give up after getting pissed and try the next day but was convinced to do it again that night and it dropped in.

MK3.0Dudeman having a cig


Finally dropped in!





Brian L Aka MK3.0dudeman & My boy Robin (looking like they are donig something after the motor was in =P)


Once the motor was in and the wiring was done, i found out the SARD ECU i had was bad so i had to purchase another one =/. Good thing i got it for 200! w00t.

After putting the motor in i had an issue with the clutch as it wouldn't go into gear :(. Later found out my dumb ass put the clutch disc in backward DOH!.


Here is how the car currently sits as i put things together. I currently have 125 Miles on the entire setup. I Love the way it sounds (open DP) at the moment. Picked up a mint APEXi N1 & TT Wheels from Gonzytuning here on the board. He's a good guy and i can vouch for his work & parts. Car has white mirrors cause i hated the 88 style and got them off of my white car before i killed it lol. The reason i have the white hatch is cause a tree was cut in half by lightning and fell right into my burgandy hatch! :( OUCH!. I still have it just need to take the glass off of this one and put the burgandy one back on. Don't make fun of my ghettoness right now. Its going to be done right little by little =P

after 3 yrs of hard driving i just decided to part it out, no need to keep it. Too much of a rust bucket to sell it to someone. Couldn't do that to someone. It was in bad rusty shape

no problem, i love them so far, car feels good, althought i wont be pushing the car for a while til its all broken in they are nice. Ride a bid harsh but thats the reason i got them to feel the road better.

I decided i was tired of looking at my ugly car and let my boy go to work on it. Wet sanding and polishing it. The only thing we didnt get to finish was the front bumper. All looks good :). Still has a few deep scratches and blemishes but looks alot better than before!
Here you go

Nice save on that Supra bro. You really turned a frown upside down.
