So, I had some things to take care of and now i can actually start the build after almost a year. Looks like i may make it to a couple of meets this year.

So I did a little shopping. Intercooler (Thanks to Joewitafro for the help), Intercooler piping, Intake and Big 3 upgrade Kit. Gonna take some piks as soon as it arrives this week.

Next up is the radiator, then motor and trans. Stay tuned.

So, First...my Big 3 upgrade kit came in the mail. 1/0 AWG for audio systems up to 250 Amps. Going to run either a 230 from driftmotion or a 250 from another spot. Whatever has the best deal.

ReeM the radiator situation is not the best. We need a JZS147 or JZS161 radiator. Sadly its very hard and expensive to get these.

What the consensus seems to be is a 93-96 Toyota Supra TT aluminum radiator (correct top spout location), and having custom mounts made for the bottom. the bottom studs are 5/8" diameter and about 1" long. Just gotta take the measurements from your stock radiator and have a welder fab it up.

I recognize that intercooler and piping kit! Hardly needs any work to get it to fit well, right under the core support.

How's this thing coming together? I'm back in the 147 game but I really don't feel like writing up a build thread lol. By rough break up I meant that I junked the black car for 300 bucks, and then I came across it at the junkyard and nearly cried hahaha
