It actually puts less stress on the diff. With stock mounts the diff can gain speed before slamming the metal stops together. This twisting is not good for driveshaft and axle articulation. With the solid mounts the energy is distributed to the subframe.

People run these in there supras all the time. I did and I beat the hell out of it with no issues to date.

I just finished the rear lower LCA shericial bushings. I cant wait to get these installed. The factory bushings are shot and you cannot buy them from the dealer.

Well the car runs again. I think the new motor mounts came out great the engine sits in a better position compared to my hand made mounts. I'm still waiting on a few parts before shes back on the road for tuning.

I received my new CNC PRC heads they look even better then the old set I had before. The ports are noticeably bigger to the naked eye.

I bought this pulley off ebay. It looks cool and it makes it easier to remove the PS pump. PS I bought the redbull from some Indian guy down the street.

The Nick Williams ported throttle body looks great but my throttle cable doesnt fit the same.

Its freaking hot in Texas. With the A/C going I noticed the car was running hotter than before so it was time for a Koyo.


A little teaser vid of my first start up. These engines are so easy to work on I didnt even cross my fingers

Thanks yeah back in March I did a 16 day build with the 16th day being the day I took a 400 mile trip to houston for the Supra nationals. At the 1/4 I ran a 12.7, drove in some crazy Houston Rain and drove home with no issues all in a 1200 mile round trip.
