    I was about to mention this. Once the half cut taken apart to sell by parts the prices are higher. If need only a little parts, of course buy parts, but if need long list, better compare prices first

    If you don't have 30-50k loose cash or more, don't even think about it. 1JZ BMWs aren't cheap to build.

    Buy lah.....Diesel is a whole new exciting world. Get one with VGT or VGS. Amazing torque. I would suggest the triton as seating in the rear is very much like seating in the rear of a small car with just slightly fitmer ride. Front is car-like. How pickup has evolved.....

    if my Wira steering wheel has so 'emptiness' about 1-2 inches before the wheel actually react. What could be the problem and how to fix it? Prefer to have those quick response once the steering turn left/right.

    Have you checked your steering rack bushes? They can be a pain to replace though

    My mechanic wrap a thin sheet of rubber (I think those bike or car tubes) over the old bushes and clamp that on. Was good until I sold the car years ago......lol

    If have to add rubber, then that makes those silicone bushes kinda pointless
    Can check yourself. Have someone turn the steering and you shine a light on the rack to see if there's movement

    some silicone steering rack bush are crappy thin. when tighten the silicone expand and cause the rack to still move a bit. hence need to check properly before buying the cheap silicone one. also, for silicone when installing, always clean the rack area properly from oil cause that will also cause the rack to move. hahaha

    Wira Update.

    Is been a long time.
    After Survey for sometime
    I got a shop who can trade in my Auto gearbox and install a manual all in for RM700.

    As I get quote from other places without trade in is around RM1.2~1.5k
