Byyrnyd's 240 thread got me thinking about all the projects I've thought up and have never had the time or money to start. So here they are in order of plausibility...

1. Nuespeed breathers and chip, GLI suspension, and mild cosmetic work on the Jetta
2. SR20DET '93 240SX Coupe with Silvia conversion (200SX)
3. H22a '93 Accord EX Wagon with mild cosmetics (Accord Si)
4. 3sgte 3rd gen Camry coupe (Camry GT)
5. 3sgte 2nd gen Camry Wagon AllTrac (Camry GT-4)
6. 22re-t 2nd gen Celica coupe, independent rear suspension and LSD from 1st gen Supra (by Grayscale's recommendation) (Celica GT-t 2400)
7. SR20DET '93 Sentra SE-R (Sentra GTi-R)
8. VG30DET 240SX 'vert (300SX)

More to come, but I gotta go pick up the wife from work.

6. 22re-t 2nd gen Celica coupe, I dunno if the 3rd gen has independent rear suspension and disc brakes, but if so I'd like to swap them in, too (Celica GT 2000)
1. I 2nd the 2ndgen coupe, with round headlights, hood/eyebrow conversion, except with an 18rgte and p5? tranny. IRS and discs can be had from 1stgen Supra w/lsd FTW!

2. 5thgen GTS w/1mzfte. (maybe a reality)

My dream for about 10 years was to build a 1st gen Rx-7 with a 20BTT. I instead built a 13.4 sec 13B.
SR20DETT in a Datsun 510. 13Bt in a '67.5 Datsun Fairlady.
To build a replica of the Toyota 2000 with a 2jzgte or a Ferrari flat 12. 'Cause its teh sexxor!

6gen with built 1mzgtte.

Really, my other dream/plan is obtainable, as money and time permits:

7MGTE - custom fabricated instake manifold with front feed TB instead of center feed and larger intercooler (possibly new front cover for 87 supra to feed the larger IC)

Cam regrind

EMS with more control (possibly MAP ECU)

larger turbo - build up bottom end if needed with final goal around 700RWP.

(not in plausibility order anymore because it's too hard to rearrange everything)

9. 1mzfze 3rd gen Camry coupe
10. The NSX V6 or H22a mounted transversely across the rear of an early 90s Accord Wagon.
11. To fully restore a Fairlady Roadster and/or 240Z
12. Drop the new GT-R drivetrain into a new Stagea
13. Twin Turbo late 90s Q45
14. Restore an old FJ Land Cruiser or Nissan Patrol, then wreck it off-roading
15. 3sgte Corolla Wagon
16. Import a Stagea 260RS Autech (not likely to happen, but I can dream)
17. LS1 into an 80s Volvo Wagon...

My dream project would still probably be (they used to sell kits for this way back when) a mid-engined small block v8 Chevy Corvair (rear seat area is transformed into engine bay). Have never seen one, but remember the ads lol . here's a link to one, a vert, nonetheless....drool...
http://www.chevyhiperformance.com/featuredvehicles/54739_1965_chevrolet_corvair_monza_convertible/
FWIW, there's someone near me has a Pinto with a huge hoos and huge rear tires ... am wondering if they might've stuffed an 8 in there (I remember v8 Pintos and Vegas being done, way back when, as well)

why in gods name would you want a honda motor in a Toyota?

I personally would be all over a automatic trans out of a new Impala SS in a MR2 /w a Built NA LS1 with a huge stall on it... like around 4-4500 RPM stall. Try to launch it real hard so it does a back flip.. I think that would be amazing.

Other than that I have always wanted to do a soarer/sc300 w a 1jz...

Datsun 240Z -SR20DET
'77 Celica (Duh) -2grfse or 3grfe, IRS
Supra MKII -1uzfe

Also, in the make believe land of infinite money, I'd like to build a 5sgze with a screw type supercharger from a Mazda Millenia S with a Quiafe LSD in the tranny for my 90.

wtf? the only Corvette that I know that ever got a 4cam 32 valve engine is the ZR1 with the LT5, not the Z06. the C5 Z06 got the LS6 405hp(pushrod) and the new C6 Z06 got the ls7 505hp (pushrod)

He's saying that he'd like to do that, thought I don't know why. The LSx powerplants are so damn good, why swap them out for something else?

You're right, that's what I'd want to do. The only reason is simply that pushrod is sort of a pet peeve of mine. Yes, the LSx series can make great power, but only at the cost of wastefully large engine displacement.

Other than the old technology in the engine, I love the new ZO6. Hell, I'd rock one in a heartbeat, LS7 and all, I'd just want a different engine later on.

haha in my opinion, those cars are the best looking of their era along with the monte, those 3 are all related to each other and take on similar designs. however, I feel the grand prix is more of a cruiser, I want to do a V8 swap, was thinkin a 350, big car needs a big engine you know? but only for class since I want to keep it a cruiser, I dont need a lot of power

I'll try to form a list of what all I want, but right now I cant sit here and list. I did start a list though and have it saved, I need to update it and then maybe I'll post it
