    Recent builds

    I've been so busy this last year i've found it almost impossible to keep up with build threads, plus who wants to see the same swaps time and time again!

    Anyway i'm using this thread to catch up with some of the more recent conversions.

    The VVti 1mz engines are popular these days...

    Awesome stuff Mr Woods.

    I actually think that visually the 1MZ makes for a way tastier looking engine bay!

    As always your attention to detail is almost a scary as your Barbara Streisand fettish.

    I still find that twin throttle body thing fascinating.

    Better looking than a 2GR!

    The throttle body really dresses it well and it fills the engine bay like it was meant to be there.

    The white one with the bronze unit is particularly legit.

    Properly excited! Mines on the lift at Woodsport right now and I can't wait to get it back! Really lovely work there Paul.

    I like the look of the 1mz engine, I was thinking of going with a twin throttle body when I had mine. They do look that extra bit special.

    Paula mixes that paint herself, I'm not joking but you should see that colour in the flesh. The photos simply don't do it justice.
