    Opinions. What to do with my shed (Is200)

    Good afternoon SXOCers. Today the engine seized on my Is200. Should I fix or scrap it.
    I've got 700 in the car so far and it hasn't made it off my drive yet. I know it's worth peanuts either fixed or broken. It needs brakes, wheels and bodywork too. I've also put effort into it as a few months ago the cambelt snapped so I replaced a bunch of calves.
    It didn't bother me when I found out the engine was seized, thus means I don't care about the car or I've become laid back. Suspect its the former.

    What would you lot do?

    Depends how bad bodywork is as you will have to put the most effort/time Into that.

    It needs new front wings but that's easy. It has drill holes in every panel though which I don't know what to do with. The engine will have to come out so that's going to be the bit that's difficult to get motivated for.

    Lol, if I went down that road I'd want it to be non turbo though. I think it'd be more reliable and cheaper.

    1JZ then, still a twin turbo though. The Toyota JZ are bullet proof

    Sorry we all live in the past.

    It has to be a Toyota lump, do something different. Shoehorn a Prius Hybrid system in there. It would probably be a world first

    Get rid of it. Sounds like a waste of time & money for something so rough and kinda pointless.

    A pal of mine has a nice clean one that he’s supercharged with a charger from a Merc SLK. It’s a fairly popular conversion. Gives it about 200bhp without mapping.
