    Hey Nupeprime! My friend saw you driving around a few days ago.

    That seat, however nice, is very expensive. From the bracket, to slider, to seat, it was a combined total of around $2200. It is adjustable.

    Corbeau has a little wider seats, and are of a much more reasonable cost. They also have their own specific Tacoma brackets. Look them up when you get the chance.

    It is capable of doing it. The problem is block distortion. The block is not stiff enough for that power level.

    Yes well, that's why I thought it's incapable of doing it.

    I imagine that a girdle has been installed, main studs, as well as all thread through the oil drain ports (similarly to the GTR blocks) to increase rigidity. In complement with sleeves.

    Pretty awesome. Thanks for sharing. Sounds different for a 1gr. It's crazy cause it's like a given that Japan has the resources to do this to that motor. Considering iTs being used in a drift circuit that thing must take a beating but of course built to take it too. I wonder how much coin they invested in it.

    There are bound to be external videos which capture the engine sound better. Just hard to find.

    That is a very good question, on the build cost. The engines are plentiful, so it comes down to the parts, and specialty machining, really.

    I keep trying. Lol. I feel it's evolved its own personality, and it doesn't want to be discarded and forgotten about when complete. So it keeps giving me setbacks. Lol
