Default My 89 1JZ MA70

So this all started about 2 years ago.

I bought the car completely stock as a 7M-GTE from the second owner. Who didnt know anything about the car. When I purchased the car it did not idle at all. It would pull hard in every gear, just wouldnt idle. I later found out that it could have been a very simple problem, such as bad knock sensor or the wiring. The previous owner also told me that the headgasket had been done by the original owner. I later discovered that the headgasket was leaking. The car had some major sound system modifications done to it that had been molested and messed with in the years after its initial install, and needed to be re-done or removed. All in all the car was a lemon when I purchased it, and needed a ton of TLC.

I pulled the 7M that winter and bought a 1jz,harness,ecu,bell housing,intercooler and piping. I then sent the harness to Phoenix Tuning and didnt get back what I was told I would recieve(thats a whole different story). I also made some purchases from driftmotion and other sources.

Rough riding MA70 with a stiff clutch is what you should have!
