in the spirit of keeping this thing alive, and want to drive it to the fullest...

yesterday spend 3 hours dropping the subframe, to install a new steering rack... we will see how long this one lasts.

all my problems started after a track day. the rear header probably cooked it, or it was my fault for not properly diagnosing the leak.

DSCN1764


that subframe has to weigh at least 50 pounds...

did not take many pictures out of this one, but the steering rack came out, and a new one (from a yard went in)

DSCN1765


of course i decided to update the hoses, as i reused old hoses.. Got some new ones from dealer top portion is from a Highlander and bottom portion from a celica

DSCN1773


did the right thing....

DSCN1774


new hoses, and new thermostat, and other goodies. While the car was down.

DSCN1772



the main thing is to swap to a compressor of a 1grfe, the one on the left, after a year and a half, i miss a/c

DSCN1768


and of course remove all the unnecessary wiring that was left because i was lazy

DSCN1771


had a lot of trouble to get the air out of the power steering system, but i found the vacuum leak, and it was fixed. The ps lines were flushed, air was removed, and the car was put back together and sent for alignment.

it drives better now..

Seriously though, I’ve made several attempts to use it in the Supra’s engine bay and it looks nowhere near as good.

I thought you were leaving the A/C off? Because it's a 'vert?

Monolouge away!

Wait, let me get your soapbox for you, then you can start.
