  1. Oh and I replaced a pulley bearing.. So no more supercharger/powersteering sounding noise :) happy and sad moments.
  2. Put new pads and calipers on the Taco yesterday and adjusted the rear brakes. Both calipers had seized, one of the front pad backs had turned purple from heat lol I can finally make it up hills with some sort of ease and I can finally stop! AND I don't have a wheel shake anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111 Taco is officially at 100% once again.
  3. I'm at porters lake tims now! Who all is planning on showing up?
  4. During the summer it will be! Kind of. I don't plan on driving it during the winter, it's RWD and has more power than my truck.. I can only see myself getting stuck everywhere! I just have two projects on the go now.. soon the truck will be under the knife, I need two front wheel bearings (since apparently they're a wearable item now) a ball joint and a pulley bearing. Thankfully having two cars saves on parts though! I'll be able to take the tentioner off and get the bearing from a bearing place rather than have to buy a whole tentioner! I'm collecting parts to swap the IS300 to manual,
  5. I finished the bod work on the car! Just super impressed with how it turned out and I wanted to share :) What I started with: 20150820_151132 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr 20150823_114502 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Cut out the soft stuff 20150823_131533 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr 400 tri[s to the vice and we have a patch plate! 20150823_143613 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Patch welded in! I also welded the back wheel well portion, but I don't have any real pictures of that. 20150823_170416 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Yes, this took many many layers of bondo and metric **** loads
  6. I hate night shift because I can't make coffee nights :(
  7. There is a noticeable difference above 3 grand for sure! I was looking for more low end torque, but over all I'm happy. I think there's an exhaust leak where the header meets the rest of the exhaust, I've just been too lazy/sunburnt to crawl under and check! It doesn't sound any different in the cab until you get to the higher rpms though!
  8. This was Saturday, but it still counts right? New header for the Taco! The little 2.7 needs some help turning them 285's up hills! 20150711_095140 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr 20150711_103240 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr

  18. I'm on nights this week so I won't be at the coffee meet, I should be able to make the meeting! 3am shift FTW
  19. Where are you ordering it from?
  20. I'm as high as I can go without a drop bracket lift :( A plate bumper is on the list for sure!
  21. Just to be a dick I went to the same rock Jay was flexing on..... 20150518_19331 9 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr I cant :(
  22. I know where you're flexing!! Tires look great! I'm sure you'll notice a huge difference now!
  23. Although I'm sure the wheel will line up fine with the pug nuts, you can get hub rings if you're concerned about it.
