Since there have been other generations signing up... why not jump on the bandwagon? ;)
We can chat things up so we don't clog the Camry forum with our posts. There are plenty of knowledgable people here that can help out!
-We can discuss certain issues people's cars are having as well... this will make the camry forum less cluttered in the long run!

For those of you who are trying to PM me, my box is WAY overfull because my supreme membership ran out and i havent renewed it yet.

For those who are wondering why my webpage is still the same as it was in the spring, that is because i havent finished the turbo project yet. when i do it will be completed with pics anf everything.

For those that want to know about future performance parts that i will be designing and selling along with luis as we begin to start our company, a Catback exhaust and CAI for both 5sfe and 1mz will be up for group buy this week or next. Into mid january we will be doing headers for 5sfe and a header/y-pipe combo for 1mz. I have to meet with luis to go over a schedule for everything and put it on the calendar.

On to my car..... As you will notice, i've made some category changes.

Name: Dave Zoni

Year: 94 mainly. maybe other years' parts have been put on.

Trim Level: mostly LE... again, who knows now.

Engine: 5sfe auto swapped to 1mz standard. Garrett GT-32 turbo, Tial BOV, Tial WG(not installed, using internal for now), 360cc injectors, custom fuel fittings and routing, aeromotive FPR, all piping custom made by me, Magnaflow Hi-Flow CAT, 5 Zigen Muffler, Polished front valve cover, Summit Mustang radiator, dual flex-a-lite performance fans with temp. switch, flexible stainless steel radiator hoses, A/C removed.

Drivetrain: '97 manual tranny, spec stage III clutch, fidanza flywheel, custom hard clutch line from the master cylinder to the slave. no rubber hose!

Electronics: Apex S-AFC II, Innovate LM-1 wideband o2, greddy turbo timer, greddy boost controller, Autometer gauges for MPH, RPM, Fuel Level, Fuel Pressure, EGT, Oil Pressure, and Boost. (Replacing the stock cluster with a custom unit). Optima Yellow Top moved to the trunk.

Audio: Clarion Head Unit, Clarion EQ, 2 Kicker Amps, 1 Kicker 12" Sub, 2 Infinity Kappa 6x9's, 2 Infinity Kappa 6.5"

Interior: Somewhat gutted. Coupe junkyard carpet that doesnt fit right. Looks like shit.

Exterior: CF Trunk, CF Invader Hood, RMM 95-96 front lip on a 95-96 bumper, Clear Lens Headlights & corners, clear bumper lights, red/clear tail lights, brand new 92-93 SE (black) center trim panel, 17" Motegi FF7 wheels in hyperblack w/ silver lip, Nitto Neo Gen 225/45 Tires

Planned Mods: Get the bitch running and tuned!!! finish the gauge panel! Start a spare engine buildup. Install the sideskirts and rear bumper i've had in my basement for almost 2 years. Get a PAINTJOB! Different turbo with a built motor, bigger intercooler with that, custom intake manifold, custom fuel system, LSD, axles, Full EMS, clean up the interior, racing seats, etc... I dunno.... we'll see...

For those of you who want to turbo and dont know where to begin, just start saving money, and then start talking about it when you have like 3 grand saved minimum. Trust me it is a huge money pit, and you will wonder where all your hard work and money went... I've worked a shitty waiter job for the last 5 years and all i have to show for it is the list of mods above. My personal life has suffered, and my parents are constantly pissed at me because of the mess that it all involves, along with the fact that i stopped going to college and now i have ambitions of opening a business doing performance parts design and fabrication along with installation. Basically when i got this car in the winter of 2000-2001, it changed my life. THINK before you start pissing money and time away people! Make sure it is really what you want to do. For those of you who want to piss the money away, buy parts from me! :)

Amerikim's 1993 V6 LE...
186k miles.
Banging around in Portland Oregon since 2004.
Did stuff, doing stuff..don't know what I am going to do.
Stuff changed so far;

1) replaced with reconditioned transmission
2) replace both drive shafts
3) wheels and tires upped to 215/50-R17, most suspension components changed (incl whiteline & Tokico)
4) leather seats & steering wheel.
5) misc electronics and electrics.
6) repaired leaky valve covers (the stink of burning oil is gone)
7) removed air box and put in K&N Pod. Sounds aggressive at higher RPM.
8) replaced plug wires and plugs (NGK), really like that I got some MPG back.
9) Drilled and plated Brembos w/akebono pads.

To Do next;
1) recondition leather. Seats looking a little beatup.
2) exhaust, probably magnaflow parts through with 2.25" or 2.5". May figure out some 'Y' pipe solution, depending on shop. No turbo plans.
3) Interior mods, mostly what I consider improvements like insulation, repairs, etc.

2006 probably be the last year for working this ride.
It will still be a good car when I am done though.

Edited for milage update.

I'm gonna have to try out that acetone trick that I have been reading so much about. Maybe going to try a CAI if santa decides to bring it.
