Merry Christmas!
I hope Santa will give you the best JDM presents under your tree! Maybe a nice calendar or an Itasha?

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Xmas wish list: an Itasha for my son

December 3, 2009 in Xmas wish list

Now this is the ultimate cover up gift for my son:

An itasha (??) diecast! This way I can both buy him a present and still get the itasha diecast as well! ;)
Just look at how happy this little girl is with her purple RX8 itasha!

Now…where can I buy itasha diecasts for a reasonable price??

When I saw this calendar I immediately thought “Damn, I want one!”.

The front already looks quite promising with the Honda 1300 coupe (and RA300 Formula one racecar in the background)

What about this mouth watering 4 door Nissan Skyline GTR PGC10?

And a first generation Celica GT fastback RA28?

Now, for only $14 that’s a bargain! Now how do I convince my wife that it is actually a bargain. ;)

X-mas comes early this year!

Yesterday when I entered the office a nice big X-mas box (seriously!) was waiting for me and later that day another enormous box arrived at the office. I opened both of them yesterday evening.

The enormous box contained a 2T/3T gasket set:

I found this cheap set for as much as two of the inlet gaskets! IMO you can never have too much gaskets! :)

But what was in the X-mas box then?
What is in this box?

You probably can guess that one already:
2T-B double carburetor set from a 1983 Toyota Celica

It is a 2T-B carburetor set! Giving an instant upgrade of 11HP on my 2T engine! That is almost an increase of 15% in horsepower! :)

And from the side it looks even better! :)

Remember last weeks posting with the webers??
Vroom! Vroom! Vrooom! Vrooooooom!

So, what’s next? Well, I still need an air filter to complete the set. Whenever I find an original 2T-B air filter or an open air filter I will start installing this on the Carina! :)
