As many will know we have been playing around with the Z20 Soarer platform for a while now, weve been able to re-produce climate control surrounds that are basically identicle to that of the original and are currently working on something similar for both manual and auto shifter surrounds along with mirror covers.

These manifold adapters utilise the factory lower intake on the pre-VVTI 1UZ engines and, as the name suggests, adapts the lower to the mounting face of the... Continue reading →
After running into some clearance issues with our 1UZ to Z20 Soarer swap it became pretty apparent that we were going to be limited to using log style manifolds and figured others may be in the same boat. We have since decided to do a small run of some standard logs and some extra tight... Continue reading →
