Today sucked

I was unable to remove the intake manifold to replace the plugs. I was only able to reach the top two and rear two plugs. I removed several bolts, nuts, the IACV, the TPS, etc....and then I got to these two bolts just under the TB which required a deep 12mm socket which I didn't have. I read somewhere that you really don't need to remove the entire intake manifold, just the TB. That would allow you to slide it out of the way to reach the middle two plugs. I failed completely and put everything back together which wasted an hour and a half of my life. I hate the design of this intake manifold.

True, but should only take fraction of time next time around. First time to replace plugs on 2jzge vvti was 2 hrs, second time around was 20 min.

Plasti-dipped/black out the front grille only where the "grey-metallic" used to be. Chrome trim around it is still there and got to admit looks alot better especially on a black car.

Me and my friends painted my headlight housings gloss black and installed my new pink LED's.

We also got my AC working and did some work to my 02 LS430 as well.

I'll have to do that, was looking at mine the other day, the black is flaking off and the chrome has seen better days. Wonder if I get some chrome spray and then plasti dip the center...

Edit: forgot to mention what I did lol..

Replaced the trunk struts, new super white LED's for the license plate and took out but KEEPING the car phone from the center console, I'll put it back in for car shows or something some day..

This!

What a difference coming from my 300 with Supra struts and lowering springs to the stock 400 ride. It's a dream. I'm tempted to leave it all stock....... Nah, not gonna happen..

Removing the TB does allow enough room to change all the plugs, did it a few times to my old 2JZ and a few other n/a's. It is a PITA when you dont have the right tools laying around, been there myself.

Wow, thanks for confirming. I was ready to get a deep socket 12mm just to remove those two bolts. Sounds like it's a bunch more work and honestly, I don't think the plugs are my issue. The car is shaking violently with any acceleration. The front two plugs looked fine, so I think it's the dizzy. The timing is fine and everything else is good. No cel's and I don't think a single bad injector would cause this much vibration.
