Well, the time has come for me to finally start my build, and boy is it going to be a long one.
Over the years I have toyed with the idea of doing something drastic and wild and I have finally chosen the car to do it too.
I will be building up a 2011 Scion tC. Nothing fancy about this car. 2 Doors, 180 hp and front wheel drive. Sounds terrible doesn’t’ it?
What if I told you that I would be converting it to rear wheel drive? Does that sound any better? How about making it a 5-speed manual? Yeah, I must be getting there. What if I told you I would be swapping in a 2JZ GTE? AHHH Now I have your attention.
That’s right everyone I will essentially be rebuilding this car from the ground up and giving it a Toyota SUPRA heart just because I want to.
Sounds Crazy, doesn’t it?
There is no timeline on this build. I have said at least 2 years to accomplish it and that is a goal, however, if I don’t do it in that timeframe I am cool with that. You see the fact that there is no manual or a “How To” to doing this, I will have to struggle my way through it. I will have to come up with ideas and ways to make things work. I have to “BUILD” my car!
Over the course of the build, I will be updating my blog when I can. If you want to follow it keep checking back here at www.acarguysgarage.com or follow me on IG:acarguysgarage or Facebook: www.Facebook.com/acarguysgarage here I will be constantly posting pictures for your viewing pleasure. It is much easier to post on social media than on the site. Yes, I am that lazy, get off my back!
This build will be done mostly by me. I will have help along the way but all fabricating, engine work, modifications, rebuilding, wiring, welding the works will be mostly done by me.
Do I know what I am doing, sure, “I’m a professional”, hahahaha!!
But in all seriousness, I am looking forward to the challenge that is ahead of me. There are going to be good days and bad. I will learn a lot and I look forward to the process!
Stay tuned and contact me with any questions you may have!
Remember, if you decide to purchase a custom shift knob all proceeds go to my build, so buy 1 or buy 5, anything is always appreciated!
Enjoy modding while you still can!!!
