Hey everyone, I figured since I didnt make a progress thread, Id make a histroy page. These are pics from day 1 when she was at the dealership til our final shoot in Okinawa Japan. I hope you enjoy them. Any thoughts, opinions, and advise is greatly appreciated. My next project is swaping in a 3sgte.


Alright so here she is At Jonny's Used Cars here in Okinawa August 2007


After I got her home, I started working on her that same night.


First thing I did was upgrade the exhaust with a Tanabe full cat.


I ordered the Varis Arising II front and rear bumbers for the st202 rather than the 205.
I've always thought this one looked better than the 205's



Tried blacked out tails, but didnt think they flowed to well with the rest of the car.


Got my gt4 hood from a good friend after tradeing him my old hood. Very glad I made that choice. I almost didnt make it.


Picked up a set of Legza rims from a local shop. cast 240000yen/$2,400 for all four rims and tiers.


At this time the car had to be repainted because I picked up a brand new set of fenders, hood and it had alot of rust n dents n holes. Also I had to have her repainted for her trip back to the states.Tthis is about 6 months before she left.











While she was being repainted I bought, straight from the Toyota dealership in Oki JDM headlights, and tails, Also a carbonfiber splitter from ARP to accent the rest of the car a little bit more.

I love the wing and the arp front splitter. Really sets off the car. The bodykit lines are perfect.

The engine is a 3sfe but soon to be a 3sgte (sick of lugging rice around when I drive) Here are the interior pics and engine pics as requested, Hope everyone enjoys.


My gauge cluster with cf n mph conversion


The momo evo edition steering wheel, Bride Buckets, cf center console, with razo, shift knob, e-brake handle, and pedals. The turbo timer is there so when I do my swap i wont have to buy one. I got it brand new for $40 at a local shop.













The Gauges are Defi: H20 temp, exhaust temp, oil, temp, and I have boost, fuel pressure waiting for the new engine.






Well here are two pics of the engine. I will try to post more soon. Its not much but atleast there is some effort to increase power. This is just temporary until I get my 3sgte. (Pressure if your reading this, I know "MOVE THE FREAKIN FILTER," lol) I will bro.
