Well after a leaky power steering rack, a bad headgasket, a failing power steering pump, possibly a gunked up coolant system from the previous owner, and my front and rear lower control arm bushings destroying my tires, I decided to bite the bullet and dump some cash into the car and fix her up the way she deserves... so... as of right now... this is how she sat about a week ago:

Thanks! I haven't done the tach mod yet. It was sent off for wiring and the wiring guy was informed about what needed to be done to get the tach working. It should be coming back to me within the next day or two. But everything you see was sourced from basically a JZS147 clip. The driveshaft, fuel pump, power steering system, radiator, hydraulic fan setup, sidemount intercooler, etc. Even the Blitz intake kit was made for the JZS147 Aristo with the bracket that attaches to the factory location. I wanted the most OEM swap I could in order to build my platform from there. Granted I already had the HKS cat-back exhaust and added the Blitz intake kit, everything else engine related is all stock and OEM with the required maintenance done. I would love to get her dyno'd to see what her baseline looks like at this point.

Oh yeah, I got an Aristo front bumper to accommodate the sidemount as well. There wasn't much air flow capable of getting to the intercooler with the GS300 bumper so I picked up a JDM one with all the fog lights and had it painted to match my car. Another thing I'm waiting on to get back
