ALWAYS liked your car. and it's black too. I love black A80s. only thing that could make it more perfect is if it's wingless. Is it? :D

check the wires coming off the alt..... 2 of the 3 on mine broke off the other day causing my car not to charge but when those wires rubbed just right it would charge for a lil bit....

sweet finally a MK4 worth driving!

you have got to be kidding! ita alright swap, but still, its a stock 1jz. if it was at least single or something, then it would be cool, but no lsd, 5spd no tq 1jz, in a boat.. i cant get down with that..

i still think its better than n/a. but 2jz over 1jz any day of the week..
dont worry i know i have had all 4 motors in my car..

I had no idea that there are mk4 guys swapping 1jz's into their cars. Im guessing they started their lives as n/a cars? Any reason as to why? Im guessing its because of a budget??? im confused. lol

It has to do with budget too, but also it's a project car, and defintily the cars were N/A...I've owned an MK3 for a long time and when I got a chance to get an MK4 I jumped on it...Yes people look at you wierd because of your swap, but hey, we did something that most people wouldn't do or wouldn't dare do....it's fun tho, I'll tell you that(for me anyways)

i have had to explain my storry too many times to people w/ no imagination... i did it not because of budget but because i wanted to be the first person to try that swap. 2nd because after reading up on the 1jz i likked that motor beter. 3rd. not everyone has money pooring out of their pockets so i havent gotten the single turbo YET. and i do have lsd and a beafed tranny thanks for asking. sorry guys, it just gets old. i mean if it isnt a good motor than why are you in this thread?
