been awhile since ive updated this. a lot has been done to the car since the last post. Also good news, i am a Lexus owner again. got me a 1994 SC400 for my winter beater/daily driver.

Dont even really know where to start, The Year started out pretty rough. On the way to a car meet in Detroit, about 2.5 hours from where i live, I had a rear caliper seize up and catch fire. Instead of replacing the factory brakes, i decided to just go through with the brake upgrade no. Got z32 Calipers all around and had to get custom Circuit Sports 4 lug rotors that fit for the bigger calipers.


This year I decided to buy myself a birthday present this summer and invested in jdm tail lights, probably the best investment ever. they completely chanced the appearance of the car.


Got a new hood for my car that actually has a gloss black finish on both the top and bottom instead of the flat black top and red bottom that i had before. Upgraded my suspension with Stance brand toe arms and control arms to eliminate a ton of my negative camber.

For you Chicago guys, you may have seen me around. I brought the car out there in August for the Another Level Car Show. I was in the VIP section there.



To finish off the year, I learned to never to park my baby on the street over night when staying at a friends. Luckily the persons insurance pay for the damage.



And now i am just buying a ton of parts for my turbo build. The car will not be out on the streets again until the build is complete.

Thanks bud. Not a whole lot has changed. I got a turbo for the car and some other little odds and ends. Sold the exhaust manifold that is pictured above and am currently looking for something better or possible a custom one made.
