Oh todd, thanks for coming this morning to diagnose the beast for me. You know what the deal is though. I'd love to fix it, but I can't afford to. I tore apart the car earlier and found the damage to the engine was more extensive than we expected at first. So parting out is what will happen.
My friends and I tore apart the whole car, oy what an undertaking...
End of an era I guess. Won't be leaving my Lexus fam though
great people here.

Well I'm glad you enjoy this thread. I made it to give myself a way to track my progress and be able to look back and motivate myself to keep going. Also I hoped to give others ideas or share insight on mods, so I hope it was informative.
As to the 2jz-gte, if the engine was the only issue, I'd consider it. But my suspension was also in need of some serious revamping. And to be honest, I'm ready for a change, even though I love this car. I just hope in parting out all this stuff I've collected and kept in good condition that my car can be in 147s all over the place and help other people get farther along than I did.

Thanks buddy, but again, can't swing it. But seriously, I'd like to see yours if you're ever in the area!
PART OUT THREAD GETTING PUT UP TONIGHT! LOTS AND LOTS OF STUFF!! Everything I have will be available, and you all will have one week to ask for anything that is in there, then the car will be donated away.
