my number 4 combustion chamber on my original engine/cylinder head.
sucked a bolt into the engine, you can see where the bolts threads imprinted itself into the CC

just a quick little picture I drew a long time ago. I've since gotten a lot better at drawing mkII Supras, heh

some more fugged up artwork

think I'm better at anime than cars, LOL

my original engine before I blew it up, 157k miles
a few days after this pic, I blew the head gasket, then drove it into the ground, water soaked into the oil and she spun 4 rod bearings, I have pics of that too, heh

more piccies

custom cut airbox, more air gets sucked in without any danger of sucking in objects (like bolts) into the engine, improves sound quality greatly

ha long story, any mkII guys out there will know about that damn rubber gasket in the air filter box. Well one day I was driving when my car started revving up to 6,500rpms and would not come back down. I pushed in the clutch, nothing, shifted into neutral, nothing. I freaked out, shut the car off and coasted into a parking lot. Called the hubby to come out. We were both bewildered. Every time we started the engine, it revved to 6500rpm. Finally we pulled apart the intake...
and that DAMN SNEAKY rubber gasket thats behind the air filter got SUCKED into the throttle body, and held the throttle plate a WOT.
well we kept the air filter and air box off, because we were still freaked out and just wanted to get the car home. We forgot about it, and one day we heard this annoying tapping noise in the engine. Couldn't figure it out, pulled the cam covers, everything looked fine. Engine oiled fine ( oiled into my face, heh )
after freaking out, we figured the sound was coming from the #4 cylinder. took the cylinder head off, and that pic is what we found. The piston and head were totally smashed up. Had nothing else to do, I Dremeled the piston and the combustion chamber, so they were "semi-smooth", and put the engine back together. I lost 70psi in that cylinder because of it, and basically ran around on 5 cylinders for 3 months before I found a donor engine that I used the head nad piston out of

moral of the story, do NOT drive without an airfilter/airbox

yeah my car has had numerous problems since I bought it, January 14th 2003. NONE of the problems have been the CARS fault, our neglect/stupidity lead to the demise of first, the cylinder head, then the whole engine. The longest my car has ever been down and out was exactly 6 days. The cylinder head took the longest, most of the time was spent trying to figure out what we should do. Then when I blew the bottom end, it was on a Thursday. I had a new engine by Saturday, and it was installed and running at 4:30pm on Sunday

They are sweet cars. My parents had 2 of em. Wouldn't mind having one, but they're notorious for having floor pans rot out. <_<

Frame rails too.. Although I don't think it's a ZX either, I'm pretty sure the ZX started in 80 or 81.... :shrug: maybe I'm wrong.
