Anyone here seen this 1GR?
Yes. That looks pretty cool. I am calling all kinds of BS on it until they let me drive it!!
I found a video of it, I believe, on YouTube. Sounded pretty sick!
What up M? You deserve a sponsorship for patience alone,
What up M?
Hope all is well withya,
had too read up on your progress. Just awesomeness. great work.
Need to make some corners. hitch a ride one day soon?
Really need this in my life. guess that could be said for most everything in your build.
Question: is tha seat fully adjustable? you know me 6'4" 260 needs room.
mine is currently broke like a B.... ,
Got more questions, but since tha funds are low.
I'll just get back too you on those.
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.
Where's the video? Been searching with no results.
Let me aee if I can find it again. It was in a drift driver interview/driving compilation.
Wow that's awesome! I didn't think the 1GR is capable of making 1000 HP.
It is capable of doing it. The problem is block distortion. The block is not stiff enough for that power level.
Go to 1:35.
Not without a little massaging.
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.
yo, thanks for tha info. need to hit ya up, pointers for tha re-build. Summer is my crazy season with all my kids out of school thou.
I'm like an unpaid Uber driver...
Charge them for gas.
man I figured you would be done with this build by now.....
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
sounds neat but i mostly hear the straight cut gear dog box trans my self
