That was the Rebic system... was found on alot of older tuner cars. back in the day they didn't have the ability to slap big injectors in and easily tune them like we do today. So the Greddy Rebic system was introduced to put more fuel into the engine. It was the first thing to go when I got it. There was fuel everywhere... inside of the TPS... AICV etc.

With the MAF.. they ran a blow-through setup... My ecu was also tuned by Mines.. but I took all of that out and set the car back to stock minus the T04e turbo.

I decided once again to keep the FJ but im upgrading to a coil pack system.

Due to scheduling got a couple days behind. Last night after work I assembled the rest for the engine and dropped it in.. Was very late when I got started so didn't really expect help. Solo engine swaps ... suck on roughly 3=4 hours of sleep...didn't break anything in the bay so that's good lol.

Was kinda curious as to what kind of clutch the old engine had. Got it all apart and found a very decent cerametallic sprung disc with a newish OE pressure plate. The flywheel is pretty lights as well and looks to be OE.

Also discovered that the trans and engine mounts brackets were modified to to accept solid mounts from newer cars so that is a plus. The Engine mounts are straight solid blocks of rubber with 3m window weld injected to fill the gaps.

so much space

Hey mate,

I've been following this build for a while now, see a few of your videos on YouTube as well, big fan.

Any recent DR30 updates?

Cheers,

Steve

Sorry for the delay was supper busy with the D1 drift season.

Now I can focus back on the Dr30.. I got it all ready to inspect and drive. It should be road legal in about a 1 more month. I bought two new bosh replacement pumps and it ran super rich as they both were stronger than the OE pumps. I honestly dont like the dual pump setup.. So I went with a single and that flows a bit to much. As a result when I drove it sorta stumbled under boost. I will add an adjustable regulator today and see how it does with some adjustment. Other than that. I just sandblasted polished and painted my wheels hot pink.. black guy.... American... Dr30 things that stick out in Japan hahaha.

were dark gunmetal color originally but had tons of cancer on them.

Completely dry and 4 days after starting on them.

Wow... hot pink Wats are really something, haha!

Interested to know if there were any issues with sandblasting the faces. As you probably know the factory finish on the rims has a nice rough texture but is prone to pitting/staining after some time. Does this texture disappear after you blast them?

Have also had a few wheel places tell me not to blast the Wats as being a light alloy wheel they can easily end up being damaged/weakened - bollocks or not?

I have another set of gun grey Wats identical to the ones on my coupe kicking around but the discolouration on them is pretty bad, plus two of them have been painted rather badly. I wouldn't mind going back to silver with polished lip on 'em for something different (similar to your first shot) :D

the wheels are super smooth zero pitting... I blasted the old paint off polished then primired them before painting.

Do it bro!!

^ It's always been Donnie's trademark. He's the male pink power ranger drifter. Japan drifters aren't shy about pink if you've seen drift videos.

Maybe he can shed more light on subject.
