Hollowed out the upper cats, inserted straight pipe through them and welded them into the housings at work. Then headed to the exhaust shop to have 2.25in piping fit in from the upper cats into an x pipe and out to my Raizer mufflers sounds sexy! No cabin drone and not raspy at all. Pure v8 yota deepness ♡

That exhaust looks awesome! The quad tips are a nice look. Do you have a video of how it sounds?

I'll try to get a sound clip this weekend not really sure how but I'll look into it! Here are some pics of how it looks on the ground. Don't mind the ghetto rear bumper. In the process of painting a replacement and hopefully shave the emblems soon.

Old water pump was leaking. Previous owner broke the lip on thermostat housing and tried using sealer. Tired of the drip and time to fix all that shat. Got a new water neck to replace it. Got new timing belt, water pump, pulleys, tensioner, spark plugs, coils, caps and wires to install today. Gonna delete the power steering vacuum assist while in there and clean everything up.

Getting down to business.

Cleaned everything as much as possible. Got it all looking pretty decent. No more leaks, dirt and oil. Also deleted that vacuum assist for the power steering. No more leaking on alternator. Also allowed a couple lines to be deleted in the process

Pretty much back together besides the covers. Installed new distributor caps, coils, plugs and wires while in there.

Successful Sunday spent

Not quite sure how to upload video. Here's a video of my car idling after finishing up the timing belt job. It's pretty late though so I'll get a recording of some revs tomorrow

Okay took a drive to get some coffee this morning. Made a little video of some in car sound of the exhaust. Should have rolled up the window lol. Next time though 3.4 bfi, cat deletes, 2.25 piping all the way through x pipe and into raizer quad mufflers.

By this weekend I will replace the radiator and the belt in my '97 SC300 so it can be drivable. Bought it cheaper than it should've been with a few issues, but it was still a steal. After that, it all depends on how fast I can get money and the mods that I buy with them, but straight pipes are coming soon.

Slow day at the shop after lunch break. Decided to focus on my car instead ;P replaced both valve cover gaskets. Replaced pcv valve. Cleaned backside of throttle body as it was pretty dirty. Replaced ect sensor since I was down there anyway lol. Also did a throttle body coolant flow delete.

Forgot to take before pic It was black and chunky though :P yum

Throttle body removed.

Driver valve cover removed. Cams and valvetrain were pretty clean. No scoring or anything abnormal. Love these motors. Last forever and wear is so minimal over a long period of miles! ✌

Deleted and blocked off hot coolant lines going to throttle body.

Making these bad boys nice and clean. Thank you parts washer!

♡ sc

Finished and ready to roll.

Some serious haze..

Haze takes away from them good looks :P

Passenger side done

Driver side done!

Scrubbing that black plasti dip crap off :P took way too long.

Washed the car while emblems off.

Looking pretty good without emblems actually. Lol may be a project in the future. Can't have holes there though.

Emblems back on and finished not a bad afternoon. Time for some beer and pizza 🤙

Decided to sand and buff my headlights today. They were looking pretty yellow. Started with a scuff pad on them to take off the initial layer of yellow. Then wet sanded with 1500 grit. Followed by 2500 grit. After sanding used Maguire's cutting and buffing compound on a buffing pad and a my cheapo dealt drill✌ Previous owner used black plastic dip on emblems which I wasn't really feeling. Removed that and now the emblems pop. Ended the day off with a much needed wash!

I didnít do much besides the abs delete and new lines to my brake mc, then I got tired of looking at a rusted brake boosted, and decided to clean it up and spray it while Iím doing brakes, then I welded the cooling lines to the tb shut.then filled the tranny with 75/90 Mobil.

Still here fams, sorry been mia and afk. I recently picked the biggest project of my life and been moving the past couple months. Still in the midst of unpacking but got around to fixing an exhaust leak that’s been bugging the hell out of me the past days as well as having a hard time starting.



the new cat came in, magnaflow part number 444748. Now just gotta fix some broken exhaust manifold studs and get a new starter and the great white sc is back on the road!
