    This has become bit of an ornament in my garage, so its time for someone to really make use of her..

    History – The first car was UKs first 1JZ powered S14a being completed and driving in Mid 2008!
    2007 engine was sourced; complete engine gasket kit, head acid dip, re-lapped valves, new water pump, belts, tensioners etc etc. Ran 15,000 miles and competed in UK BDC 2009 as a standard TT at 301bhp flawlessly! It put me into 3rd place overall in semi-pro 2009.

    2010- present. The old shell was scrapped as I had been offered a minter, so it was decided to build up a tidier shell and revisit the powertrain. The power was upped to 490~bhp and ran flawlessly for another 25,000 miles till only few months ago. Electrical issue caused premature failure, and the cylinder head had to be rebuilt. The rebuild included ARP head studs, Tomei 2.0 mm HG, new tensioner, stem seals, and various gaskets and seals on the engine.

    The car was re-mapped about 2 months ago by Greg (the only person to tune my engine) and it now makes 475~ bhp & 485 ft/lbs @ 1.4 bar. Greg had spent a lot more time on the throttling of the map, so the throttle response is unreal now, its never felt this lively before!

    I have already used the car a handful of times since mapping and feels like a completely different beast!

    The shell was built up from a 97 BARE shell – This has to be one of the cleanest 14a’s ive ever seen, hence the choice to re-shell into it. Upon the build up I used POR 15 (Marine rust protectant) on all the seams on the underside, then stone chipped.

    The car has had a few bumps/nudges over the years, but nothing major. Some damage to the front flinch areas. But these can be cut and framed prior to sale for the right price if it bothers you that much.

    Car will be sold with a service and alignment, ready to enter any UK & Euro comp,

    No doubt ive missed a few bits and bobs, but i'll add when i remember.

    Like any drift car, it has a few rough edges here and there, but like every car ive sold im more than happy to point out every little detail. For this sort of pedigree car, I’d feel more comfortable that the new owner knows every little thing about it.

    NO PX's

    Price £11,991 – No wheels!

    07751203302 as im not on here much. Please don't text me asking to swap for your S13, or what the lowest i'll take. If your serious ring me.

    I know there are a few JZ S bodies priced around this mark or under, but what you need to remember is: the quality of some of the parts are second to none (a huge amount of thought and care) has gone into the complete driveline to ensure the reliability which has really prevailed over the years, and the development that has gone into this car. The shear mechanical grip this car can achieve is quite suprising. More than happy to offer aftercare/support on the vehicle.

    Currently the car is setup for an extremely high level of grip normally run on semi-slicks all round at low 18 – 24psi. The grip is so much that the reliability of the drive shafts has been compromised even with the raised sub frame. I’d advise if this is to be used with semi-slicks to upgrade the rear shafts/diff. However part worns, or medium compound rubber will be fine.

    Willing to export!

    Ive got hundreds more photos, these just happen to be recent ones.

    Nicely written advert dude:thumbs:

    I too can vouch for this car being awesome.. It was a passenger ride in this car that got me into drifting in such a big way, I bought a 1j the very next day, Iv basically copied most this setup on my car..

    Iv also lent a hand in various strip downs and rebuilds of this in the last year or so, so much 'next level' things on this car.. It hasn't been 'built'.. It's been Engineered, to a high standard..

    Sure this won't hang around..:thumbs:

    Great value car for the money, one that's been built properly so it's proven to be strong and reliable and effective- A lot better than buying a big spec unreliable heap like most cars!

    Love it, a great buy.
