    A few pics of my JZX100 I picked up recently. It was imported from Japan about 3 years ago and has been in Ireland ever since.

    fzPgKW.
    YyV5tz.
    63yZvy.
    W6AcMH.
    C0uQ0h.
    QYZx9B.
    FsXSn7.

    Vertex kit
    Dmax bonnet
    Origin roof spoiler
    Ganador mirrors
    Decat
    Catback exhaust
    Blitz FMIC
    Apexi Power FC mapped to 330bhp
    Alloy radiator
    Weld heat sink cover
    CST coilovers
    TRD strut brace
    18" Work XT7s
    4x Defi gauges with controller and Link display
    Greddy Profec OLED boost controller
    Key's Racing steering wheel

    Thats pretty much it. I've not done much to it yet but have Recaro Confettis to go into it and a few more interior bits. Then hopefully change the wheels, tidy up some paint work and add some more performance bits. Have a few general maintenance bits to do aswell.

    Currently looking for aftermarket anti roll bars, 18x9.5 et25-ish wheels (Work, SSR, Rays etc.) and any nice JDM add ons.

    Will probably end up going for a Holset HX35 or something. Standard CT15 really runs out of puff a bit early for me.

    Love a nice X chassis. Sometimes wish I'd bought a MK2 instead of my Chaser..

    Don't know what gave you the idea I'm in NI but I'm in ROI :D

    Didn't get too much done this week. Bought a set of TE37s, 18x9.5 ET12 so have to try make these fit now

    Huge improvement already. The Emotions didn't look anywhere near as good as the TEs. Keep going!

    The front lip is a Vertex lip cut to fit the intercooler. Think KFD do a copy.

    Raised it a little bit before getting the arches rolled. Might have to run a 215/40 to get it sitting how I want.

    For reference, 215/40R17s on 9Js, you didn't state your widths but I'm assuming 9J maximum:

    14359977_1782019138676400_3587988564949860352_n.

    10554230_304661229713002_739436655_n.

    18s may vary slightly but even just the tyre brand can have a huge difference in stretch appearance.

    Wheels are 18x9.5 ET12, says it above. 215/40/18 will fit no hassle.

    Completely missed that, sorry! Not worth overfenders when they're only a different tyre profile away from fitting nicely. Looking forward to seeing how you get on with this.

    The wheels would be sold before I'd ever consider overfenders lol. Still on standard arches so going to get rolled and pulled tomorrow then we will see what tyres will work.

    Lovely looking Car, I do like the White on White, but the TE37's are dope af.

    What are they like to drift? I'm taking my JZX90 drifting for the first time in a few days, cant wait!

    I prefer white on white aswell but hard to say no to original finish bronze TE37s

    Ah mines a bit ropey, some rear suspension issues but generally they're pretty good. You can feel the weight on transitions and it can snap a little bit but its surprisingly easy to place.

    Thats good then, I've only done days in a BMW Compact and MX5, so hoping the weight and power will make it easier for me lol

    The biggest difference compared to either those will be the ability to drift on torque alone. The 90 engine probably hasn't just as much low end as the 100 engine but will still pull from very low down compared to what you've used before.

    Not sure, either way, looking forward to it.

    Keep it up though, seems to be plenty of Toyota Saloons popping up on here lately :)
