So N1 and I were deciding who would end up posting a build thread first,
between him and his Integra, or me and my Cressida.

Guess I'm making one first, though I feel like it will take a lot longer to finish compared to his

Here is my boat, purchased from a guy who was "staying" in Sacramento
and was effectively a teenager owned car.

Of course, being naive I didn't fully check the car over. Cue a bunch of issues that popped up the moment I tried to do basic maintenance
(4/6 spark plug wires actually working, missing thermostat, secondary cooling fans don't seem to work, rod knock), and it proceeding to just sit on my driveway.

As to why I'm making the thread now, yesterday I decided to trip up to Sacramento to source an engine.
Came home praying my daily wouldn't die from the weight and offloaded it to my front yard, for the time being.

Lacking money to splurge heavily, I ended up deciding on going a 2JZGE, the non-turbo variant of the ever popular motor of Supra fame.
I figured that if I end up getting a 2JZGTE (Turbo variant) down the line, at least all the mounts should be the same
as well as having the front sump oil pan and hardware to swap over and make it work correctly.
Though it would also mean I would need to add/relocate the power steering fluid reservoir among other things.

And here are the shots of my attempt to carry it back home in my daily.

I'll probably be pretty slow with posting anything new,
hopefully I get things running before the end of the year.

Pfft, you call that thing a boat? It's barely full size, much less boat status.

Still love it though. wub.gif
