New D1 Machine

Well now that I’ve had this for a while I might as well do a little write up.

Picked up this GX81 with 1UZ and W55 all mounted up for a small sum of money. So far I have set about pulling out motor and gearbox as I plan to run my W58 out of my old car and an A1 turbo, bell-housing and flywheel. Also the fact that I will have to redo the engine mounts a little better.

Plan was to run it NA but that idea got shelved within minutes of the car arriving home. So I bought a T04E with a P-trim exhaust housing and 50mm wastegate. Mike and Evan have started building stainless manifolds to house the turbo and external.

Plans are to use it mainly for drifting but also a few hill climbs and trackdays.

Anyhow, will update as I go and whenever I can be arsed, peace waz.
