volcomcy Got the block back from the machine shop. TT Pistons and rods installed. Started putting the engine back together along with the FFIM. I still need a throttle body. I wonder if the RMR 82.5MM throttle body wont sacrifice throttle response.

volcomcy Whats with photobucket recently?

Anyways, I finally got around to opening up the engine to see why my car was smoking so bad. 4 out of 6 pistons had cracked or shattered ringlands and rings. Good thing the cylinder walls were not scored or damaged. I will have a machine shop take a look at the block before I proceed with the build. But here are a few before/ after shots of cleaning, painting and polishing the engine.

volcomcy Fresh white paint for the engine bay and a nice layer of clear coat to protect the paint and keep its shine.

volcomcy Fit the full body panels, mounted the Bride seat, tested the BC coilovers w/ air. Its pretty cool to have the ride of coilovers and at the flip of a switch raise the car over speed bumps and not lose the performance like bags would.

volcomcy A ton of parts just arrived!
Test fit the front and rear over fenders / door skins (The pic only has the front fender on)
Installed the BC coilovers with aircups
Currently installing Finishing Lines ABS relocation kit, Drift knuckles with Aristo tie rod ends, Eibach sway bars with new end links.
Still waiting on my seat rails/ brackets.
Engine bay is primed and ready for paint.
When the engine is back from being built I will probably tune the car for 375HP until I can afford a better trans.

Gaberpot Are you going to keep the stock 5 speed in there or do a r154 swap? Or v16x?

volcomcy I lost my password months ago so I havent been able to update the build. This is what has been going on in the past few months. The car made 400HP on the dyno, I daily drove the IS for about a month until a wastegate line melted and caused a horrific boost spike that lead to blowing the piston rings. I went a head and picked up 2jz GTE rods, pistons and ARP rod bolts. I pulled the motor out 2 weeks ago and slowly started to take it apart before I send if off to get rebuilt. I ordered front/rear over fenders and door flares for the car that should be here in a few weeks. Switched from the Ksports to BC racing coilovers with Eibach sway bars. Swapped over the CF hood from my white IS300. Relocated the battery to the trunk with a proper kill switch. I purchased another Is300 to daily for now (I currently have the Red 5 speed IS, white 5 speed IS and now the grey auto IS) I also made a set of "Clear" tail lights since no one has done this before, I know its super 90's 2000's rice but it will be different from everyone else. Time for the photo dump. (The last photo is my "collection" of junk/cars lol)
