CSF has been making all aluminium radiators. I do not question their build quality. It's just the oem style ones with plastic end caps that I can say were a mess. For some older Toyota trucks/cars they mad all copper brass radiators that were very nice. But any of the ones with a seal and a crimp were a complete mistake of engineering.

In another life I used to work for a radiator company. I cannot begin to tell you how horrible CSF oem style radiators were "the ones with plastic end caps on them". They were only slightly better than spectra premium ones which would have a 60% return rate. Misumato, Reach and Koyo were among the aftermarket brands I would spend my cash on.

@markstoys Haha you won't have to worry about anyone one upping you for awhile or even copying your build. 1uz's are ultra reliable and everywhere considering the amount of them being driven around in oakland/bay area without proper care or maintaince that's probably the reason why do many people decide to go with the 1uz. I know how you feel about people copying things, it's inevitable though...haha your light years ahead with the setup you have. Hope to see it in person sometime!

It's like you lived or visited japan and are so open to Japanese things but you can't even accept who you are or where your from. Why did you build a truck for road racing anyways? It can't make it into nastruck.

 @Jmag I never ran into a unfriendly person at the track...everyone is open and accepting of each others cars.  These people clearly are more used to car shows and the "IM BETTER THAN YOU...or I HAVE SOMETHING BETTER THAN YOU" mentality. Its pointless arguing with these types.  They claim to go to track days but only have pictures of booths and cars parked.  They make up stories and say stupid things like "Because race car"  http://assets.diylol.com/hfs/ac3/0e0/a7e/resized/because-race-car-meme-generator-why-more-than-you-can-afford-pal-because-race-car-32ce69.jpg?1312552327.jpg .

 @KietaPhillips Much love I totally agree.  I cant understand why someone would hate so hard on this car.  I think ive met the guy at a few drift events up at thunder hill.  He's a hella cool guy.  Aside from him being cool his car is great looking and DRIVES DAILY.

 

People with newer cars dont realize how hard it is to keep a 20-40 year old car running on a daily basis.  Let alone be brave enough to rock it all the time back and forth to the track.  Speed bump...FUCK IT here we go!  Its just a car...but a car with value and hardship to the owner and people WHO HAVE RESPECT for his accomplishments. 

 

Id love to visit your shop sometime Sunny and take pics.  Cheers for keepin it real.

 @JDMized  as far as your tacoma build goes thats an expensive truck.  Looks like a GIGANTIC money pit.  And in the end its still not a mclaren.  Tell me this...why in the world did you dump that much work and time on a 2-3RZ-FE?  Thats what motor is in there right "correct me if Im wrong".  What will does it run in a quarter? 

 

Ill give you this much...your the first person state side that ive seen do it.  But people in Australia have been doing it way longer than you.  Whats your intentions with it?  Drift truck, work truck, show truck?  It certainly wont pass smog with the modifications youve done to it.

 @JDMized  Just in case you didn't see it...there are license plate holes in the center of your bumper to hold your plate on.  You didnt need to drill new ones on the drivers side of the bumper.  FYI.

They probably used the cartilages from the 240z after they cut them down to weld on the perches for the coilovers.  That way they didnt have to cut up the shock towers.

Notice the break line bracket.  There's the proof you can also tell by the angle the spindle is welded on.  I actually work on cars.  Thats why I know this.  Sorry for bursting your non-ae86 front suspension bubble.

@JDMized ok dude I'll let him know not to use another z because everyone is doing it and thier mother is building one "according to you". Maybe the tunig industry is ruined because of people like you thinking they know what's best for everyone as opposed to individuality that obviously can't be seen by someone with 1inch thick glasses and a horrible additude.

@s30zgt If you ever built an 86 you'd know them struts are 86 struts and spindles, that obviously have been modified. But I stand corrected. Somebody builds them out of 86 parts.

I know your type thats why I said it.  "Buy it from eBay "made to fit the car" with no fabrication."  Maybe if your car wasnt in your garage all the time you'd be getting out more often and you would have more of a chance seeing it.  NAME a suspension kit that is still around for the car that he could go buy.  GO do your eBay homework and post me a link when you find one.

 @JDMized I dont see a Giant red circle or bondo on this car.  Wheels are different, interiors different,  OK they are both kinda silver...and slammed and look awesome.  Are you unhappy because its not a brand new car?  Because thats all I see you comment on positively.  Sounds like you might be jealous of not having the ability of working on a car and appreciating this work of art.

Like what?  Does anyone make suspension for it anymore?  Find something that would work in place that would still be logical to put on a 40 year old car.  I dont understand why so many people are hating on this car.  Maybe its because he can drive his daily and still get chosen.  When others have garage queens that sit on jack stands and move 10ft out of the garage on saturdays and sundays and back in on mondays.
