Default 04 Vert Project... during other projects

Figured I'd make one of these since I'll be making this one a project.

Here are my other 2 projects

06 wrangler ( getting a bigger lift, and 35's)



02 Is300 ( will be a built Turd JZ )




And here's the 04 Vert Touring.. I want this to be a great mountain driver... with enough power to beat the 2JZ in a straight line








And my riding buddy that goes with me almost everywhere I go whether it be to a car show or rock crawling

2 weeks after purchase.. JUST as I was about to start buying parts...

It drops two quarts of oil in 3 days... and starts overheating. It's now sitting at the shop, and I wait...

After 12 days in the shop..

They found out the tech lied about the job he did... and they took it for a test drive before giving it to me, and let's just say.... it didn't make it 2 miles before they had to call a tow truck..

The fun continues

Figured I'd update again..

The shop realized they couldn't do the job. The car is now at a Nissan dealership, so after I believe 16-17 days in the shop...

Nissan now says after all this ... " It's the thermostat"

But apparently there wasn't a 350z thermostat anywhere in Colorado so they had to fly one from Texas.

They claim they did a pressure test, and they also did a compression test. But can't figure out why it lost 2 quarts of oil in 2 weeks.


Again.. The fun continues.

Well.. I received a promotion. Car is now sitting in New Mexico awaiting my arrival. As I'm moving from Colorado to New Mexico.

Jeep is sold as I got a 2012 F150 as a company truck now, and I decided to also sell the Lexus, as well... I dont want it lol.


Within the next month the motor should be out of the Nissan, and it's getting a 6.0 with likely a decent single

Didn't realize my pics are all broken. I'll update.

Had some work done to the 2jz POS lexus, but the Nissan is officially dropped off in the shop to get the turbo put on and a few other goodies.

Heres the last pic of the car before I dropped it off




Other update. Lexus didnt get sold. Jeep did haha. And now I have a 2014 f150 with ecoboost!
