I do too, but they're impossible to find. That bumper is the Bandoh front, which matches the kit. I have the Monocraft front bumper. The Bandoh GT300 car started by running a Monocraft body, but was later modified to their own design.

I just got my subframe back. The subframe was boxed in by Ill Garage and then powder coated.

Headers acquired. I also forgot to notch the subframe for the rear header. It will come back out of the car, get cut up, welded, and powder coated again. Dammit.

I bought a thing. Many other things have been done. More eventually. Or not.

Just realizing that it has been nearly a year and I still haven't done this.

Things I did this year:

  • Finished the fuel system
  • Put the passenger side engine mount on properly
  • Decided to shave the mounting flange off the quarter panels and mount them like overs, on top of the factory quarters (better gaps, easier mounting, etc) Started on one
  • Custom Stance coilovers (short stroke dampers to clear axles and lower end links, shortened lower brackets to allow desired ride height)
  • Officially 5 lug all around after custom front hubs were made
  • Hardtop

Things left to do:

  • Notch subframe for the rear header
  • Wiring - Patch harness from the factory 2GR harness to the AEM Infinity connector, with extra plugs for; main relay, battery power, extra sensors, LCD data logger
  • Have the intermediate shaft machined with a grove 1/4" closer to the transmission for the carrier bearing
  • Exhaust Y pipe and muffler welded up
  • Radiator hard line relocation/solution to it exiting into the front header (Likely requires a fuel tank drop)
  • Final body panel fitment and fuel filler solution
  • Front tubs if the wheels don't clear
  • Paint


Plugged the factory FPR


5 Lug


Current status, closing out 2016

Started working on this today.

Pulled the subframe and fit the rear header for the first time.


Made my rough cut after eyeballing it



That's a pretty well calibrated eyeball.


Unfortunately I will need to cut more for clearance.


That looks pretty good. About 1" all around. I have solid poly mounts, so the motor shouldn't move much. I plan on making a heat shield with recessed nuts to attach it to.


I will need to add some bracing. With the help of CAD (cardboard aided design)...



And to box in the new gaping hole...


Thinking about future bracing.


After doing all this, I was reading a thread on a V6 turbo MRS. He chopped the subframe and moved it up 50mm to correct bumpsteer (he also moved the trailing arm pickup up 50mm)

I'll probably go this route, since my suspension arms are reaching for the sky. I can't brace the bottom like he did, since my exhaust and engine mount is under there.

Got my intermediate shaft machined to move the carrier bearing 1/4" closer to the trans, allowing me to use a stock Sienna bracket bolted to the side of the block.



Decided to get the starter bolted in and start on the shift linkage stuff. The starter hit the cable bracket (my engine has the towing package oil/water cooler lines). I opted to just shave down the starter rather than fab a new solution. Started on the coolant lines. It will be run like a factory MRS. I need some parts to finish it.



Lastly I started on the shift selector mechanism. The groove on the outside needs to be turned 180, while everything internal needs to remain in the same location, including the arm next to the groove. A simply grinding down of the spline on the opposite side of the shaft and some welding will solve this issue.
