My green TX coupe, 4ZD1T 422rwhp vids page 15

Post by redzone (coxy) »

hey guys thought i might post some pics of my green coupe as its nearing completion.

have had it since 1997, bought it as a lime green stocker, it is still the best coupe shell i've ever seen. has had a few brand new rare spares panels put on it to make it near perfect. had it on the road looking nearly identical in feb 2000, with a crazy NA G200Z, as that was the best legal combo at the time. also has a lot of other rare spares sourced parts, like every lense on the car is/was new, dash vents,etc etc. anyways the first paint prep job fk'd up, and i was left with a few rust spots coming out. thats when the new panels went on 8) as i took it off the road in late 2001. has been off the road ever since. grabbed a piazza turbo engine and gearbox as it became legal to have a turbo gemini.. then later found the 2.3 was legal so got a 4ZD1! and a GT3040R, MUA gearbox, R31 skyline LSD (yet to be fitted).. spent $5K on a sweet paintjob at D&P smash repairs on sunshine coast.

so anyways, i'm on the home stretch now, plugging away at it, as i'm hoping to have it ready for the toyo tyres mini jam at willowbank on 1st of march, running in the street rwd class. dont expect any better than 12's until i get the diff conversion done and the boost wound up! here's a few newish pics from last year, and some current...

here is the engine bay as it looked at the start of the year:

cheers for the kind comments guys :)

rust3 - wastegate is a sub zero 65mm jobbie, got it off em in 2003 before they up and went to dubai.. yes it is a tad large for this application, but it'll be ok. just be a bit of fun playing with the EBC!!

GeminiCoupe - wheels are OM15's, 6.5 inch front and 7 inch rear. rears are low offset to give more dish, when i get the diff conversion done i'll be narrowing it slightly to bring em in a little, and possibly adding another inch to the inside rim..

DRGEM - cheers dude really appreciate it. this car always drew a good reaction when it was on the road last time, even had die hard V8 heads complimenting it haha... You know this is probably gonna sound like a cop out but i'm kinda reluctant to say what the colour is, i like being individual lol.... suffice to say its an uncommon colour but is not a custom mix!

700NUF i think there's about a 10 percent chance of me making the cruise, but i'll be racking up the miles asap before mini jam so i can punish it on the dyno in time :wink: so she'll be gettin around....
