no its not too much of a bother its just when im next to car idling it bugs me, makes me feel like I don't take care of my car lol

I was kidding about the port injection itb lol. if I were to tune it I would need a piggy back ecu like aem's systems or even greddy e-manage or something. but im not building the motor of this car what so ever till the engine problems come. at that point I would be doing a 1j or 2j swap.
You should jump into the newer UR's or the older UZ's if you're gonna do a swap. These cars are heavy, and the TQ from the v8's help a lot more than a jz

I didn't know the ticking was THAT bad lol.... I don't have any ticking on mine's luckily then lol....

FWIW, I don't think piggy back's work..... designo and passnu2 have already tried unfortunately

I don't have any wobbles or vibrations during acceleration, but I do have them under deceleration at all speeds when I let off the throttle. I don't know if its an alignment or that short axle thing that people were talking about when you lower the car. vibrations are coming from the front.

I must say I am surprised of the drop. My front and rears are leveled out perfectly. will post pics when I get home


Does anyone know what that sensor is connected to the front and rear drivers side lower control arm? seems to be AFS because now my headlight pointing up lol.
AFS sensors.... My installer for my air used those spots as installation spots for my e-level arms.

Glad the DF210's are working out great for you!

Mine's too mine's too..... the AMK compressors are a lot quieter, but uglier... I've been told they're ALMOST as strong as 2 400c's, with less power draw.

BTW, how are you dealing with the power draw anyways? It drives me nuts sometimes lol...

thanks yeah the ticking is weird because when I go on long drive like I went to Memphis(about 3 hours away) and when I got there the engine stopped ticking. so its weird.

Ill start a thread hopefully no one gives me heat about it lol

Did you measure the cars ride height before and after to see exactly what the drop was? Looking forward to seeing the before and after pics....

I don't know it looks like its under 15. there's a sticker on the window that says in compliance with Tennessee window tint law (its actually a number lol doesn't say window tint law)

I sure did which what was surprising. front went down about 2.5" and rears when down about 2.3". its surprising to me because I know the springs have to settle still and will lower down more just a tad bit. Tanabe says "up to 2.5" doesn't matter to me at least i don't look like im ready to go offroad anymore.

thanks man, they were 20 by 9.5. I didn't like them because they rubbed on stock height. the tires weren't fit right for the wheel and the tire shops gave me problems with the tpms in this wheel so I didn't like them.

Here's a silly question, do visors serve some purpose? Or is it just a look people are going for?
