  2. How about this... We are doing this in my friends car right now... You need different engine mounts for the 400, but the subframe is the same. Supra one work great. Don't forget, since the 400 is automatic you need a tranny too and a driveshaft. You do have to cut a hole for the clutch pedal. I am putting a soarer 1jz in my car so most of the plugs connect, however my friend is using a JZA70 motor and most of the wiring needs to be modified. Anyhow, hope this helps. James
  3. I still have mine, but PM me to make sure that they are the right ones. James
  4. you can look at mine. I have the same hood.
  5. At the speeds my car see's this hood needs the correct bolts to secure at the hinge. I am no way - going to attempt to use this hood with 10mm low grade bolts. I had to drill and tap them out. Just finished that today, and much more than 20 minutes. Two of the aluminum inserts nearly pulled out. I was able to reinforce them with two part epoxy and a night of curing, then re tapping very slowly and gently. All said, now I have 4, high quality mount points for my hinge. I still have the pin holes. Tried to fill them with black locktite - can't recall the number on it. Decent stuff. I'm going to see if my body guy can give me any advice on Saturday when the car goes in for a little bit of attention unrelated to the hood. The washer nozzles took 2 hours each. The top surface is somewhat presentable to any eye that does not know any better. That's it. The bottom surface is rolled - but cracked - very obvious demolding issues. Not autoclave. If I knew what I know now when I bought this hood - well, I wouldn't have bought it. Hey masubi, what hood stop clearance are talking about? Can you post a picture? The factory soarer hood uses 10mm bolts, I just saw one. That is probably why the hood had 10mm. I know it was cloned off a JDM hood. As for the hood stoppers. If you installed the CF hood you noticed that you had to cut out a slot on both sides of the hood in the rear. They look like hooks coming up from the back/top of the fenders. If you still need a picture, I guess I can post one. James
  6. depends how you want it to look. My rear offset it +18 and I think +22 in front but I have to double check, but It is the same as the vertex soarer. 18x9 and 18x10
  7. Wow, looks like everyone hates importfan? The hood and trunk on my car are from them, it is not perfect but is ok for the money. I know that them and many other companies like VIS have changed there manufacturing to make them better, but they are not the quality of most JDM hoods, but then again they are half the price! But not all JDM CF are good, they are really the king of body kit thieves and many of there stuff is not that great either. We import lots of parts from japan and when it comes to kits, you have to spend the big money to get the really nice parts. Even the vertex kit did not fit they way I thought for the money. As for fitment of my CF parts: The hood is average, the color is nice (my car is outside always) took 20 minutes to modify. It was molded off Soarer hood, so you have to cut groove on both side for hood stop (crash) JDM don't have, and the holes on hood are 10mm instead of 12mm so you need some washers. No hood pins needed. NO hood shocks! Trunk: fits average, but has a bigger gap on one side. this part is so-so. Fits better without trunk shocks (bad shocks good ones are too strong).
  8. E-manage is way to go, I have one in my car and they are cheap to buy.
  9. The only hard part is wiring, everything else is easy.
  10. You can not use the factory struts, they apply to much pressure to the hood and trunk and cause then to not sit properly. I will try to fit up some other ones and will let you all know when I get them to fit.
  11. I just put a Cusco LSD in my vehicle. 2 way. It works real good, set it up at 80% so that it is not so noisy, but it works great. I could not believe that with the limited amount of 5 speeds that they did not come with LSD stock...
  12. I'll Have to give it a try... And then I will let everyone know... Thanks, James
  13. STill... did any of you find a wiring kit? Thanks,
  14. Front bumper is $800 - 15% plus tax and shipping if applicable.
