    Had this for a few months now. I like cars that are a little different to the norm and this is right up my street. Saw it, wanted it and just by chance I managed to buy it!

    How it looked when I bought it...

    The main problem when I bought it was the cut springs. The ride was terrible and to say I had "trouble" getting on and off the boat back to the Isle of Man would be an understatement. So once back I refitted the standard air suspension and bought this little chap...

    One air suspension height controller. Much nicer ride now and can still go just a low!

    So now as the car stands

    2JZ-GE
    Stainless Jasma cat back exhaust
    Weds Kranz Cerbarus II (need refurb)
    Kit we think is Junction Produce.
    Standard air suspension with height controller


    Long term plans will be to drop a GTE motor in, manual convert it, coilovers, diff and see how it performs at a drift day.

    But first I need to get it Manx registered and I'm not expecting that to be easy. Wish me luck!

    Looks good!!! I recognise the car, was it for sale on here recently? Why is it hard to Manx register?

    Yeah it's Steveos old one.

    Any car over 2 years old can be a pain to register over here. It all depends if the examiner is in a good mood or not.

    Just a shame it's so dirty and the suspension was a little high when it was taken.

    Whatever box I can find that is going cheap. Probably an R154 as I doubt I will find a V160 near my budget.


    Loz, I'm looking forward to when I can make this do sidewaysness!

    What controller did you use and was it pretty easy and straight forward to install I'm debating a controller or coilovers
