85' Cressida Wagon I am 2JZGTE swapping with R154 5 speed and twin plate clutch. Will also get a ford 8.8 rear end. Its not running right now. Unless you are really good at the Fred Flinstone thing (old 5mge is removed).

Important to do list right now is. Currently I need to order a bracket thingy for my hydraulic release bearing, and then I need to replace the Front bearing cover on the trans. Mount said trans to the engine, then the whole thing can go in. Also needs a couple more hours of trans tunnel massaging.

Other car I drive on a normal basis is a boring red 2011 BMW 335i w/ 6MT and xdrive.

It should, I think it only weighs around 3000-3100 lbs at my best guess after swap is done. Ill weigh it at a truck stop at some point, but it will easily push 370+whp on the stock twins considering Ill have no cat, a huge intercooler, and CAI, along with a few supporting mods.

Want to go big single turbo some day on E85 and the only thing really holding it back at that point is 3rd gear in the trans doesn't like anything above 650-700rwtq so Ill keep it below 600rwtq to be safe. That is well down the road though, but I already have all the parts ill need laid out to do so lol.

Dream is to have it be a grandma churchmobile that kills modern toys.

i need a good overcast day to get the colors right.. super easy to take a pictures of a "pink" car in the sunlight,, a lot harder to get pictures of an actual red car, this will have to do for now
