Yeah I know I need to put up some pics. I'll try to this weekend. Im a network engineer so I work about 50000 hours a week No time for anything.

I just read a bunch on swapping in an Astrio 2jzgte vvti, I see them around for 2500-3000, that seems pretty promising. Probably a motor swap is doable for under 5k. Although I think my 2jz has alot of life left ... maybe something for a project down the road.

only 2 quarts of ATF T-type 4 left to swap out, that will make it an even 10 quarts mixed in/out. It shifts much better and definitely feels nicer when under 3rd or 4th gear acceleration on the freeway.

The power steering fluid is pretty red now and not so yellow.

Next on my agenda is the diff fluid and probably new brake pads.
