    Reid's mx32 cressida

    after a year of looking i finally found an x3 cressida im still not 100% sure what my plan is yet but iv got lots of ideas. not sure if i wanna keep the 4m or swap in a 3tc.. im planning to swap in an x7 rear subframe and possibly x7 front or just rack and pinion. but yeah pretty stoked any input is much appreciated!

    this is the only pic i have atm please excuse how ****ty it is, was shot with a potato..



    first order of business.. pick a name, this car has way too much character to not have a hilarious name

    Quick update. I finally started on this thing, fixed the steering column it was missing some crucial mounting bolts for the tilt, and have started a full emmissions delete all vaccuum lines have been ripped out; carb is out, egr is gone, now time to make block off plates and plugs for everything. Going to convert it to a weber 32/36 and hopefully will be deleting the air pump as well pics to come soon!

    finally photo update!

    this is just a pic i took of my x3 beside my buddy mikes



    picked up these 14x6 advan a3a's to refinish



    the making of the egr blockoff plate on the head







    and where i plugged the egr at the intake maniflod. plase excuse my poor tig skills







    shot of the engine bay as it sits you cant really tell how much stuff i took out as i never took a pic before i gutted everything ill have to snag a pic of the pile of parts and vaccuum lines everywhere



    this is just an interior shot i took for fun




    so anyways just trying to find a way to put a weber carb on this. they dont make a kit but i was reading the fj40 kit might work or at least the adapter from it so hopefully i will have that sorted out soon. but thats the end of the update, more to come soon

    a 22r adapter will not work. only 2 holes line up. I tried it and bolted with 2 holes. the side not bolted will start to leak after a while. I also did a complete emission delete. no air injection, smog pump guts removed, all vacuum lines removed but the dist advance , heat and bra

    Quick update,



    i pulled the trans out of the car a few months back, and have now finished putting my w58 back together just waiting for my shiftgasm kit to come in before i put it in. Finished the vaccuum delete and also picked up a weber carb and new fuel pump, its all installed and should be fully operational.



    Also i picked up a mango today, super excited to get it on the road!
