    Welcome to the Ambellina build. My favorite truck ever being the X-runner I was stoked to get back into one a couple years ago. Been lurking around and decided to create a page to keep track of the mods I have and the mods I want as well. Plus the lowered gang needs a little more representation!

    The inspiration
    B81E42F3-DF23-46EC-B344-F2C049C588BF.jpg

    Blue and Gold is the color scheme. A classic that can do no wrong.

    TRD short shifter
    Clutch Master throw out bearing
    URD Stage III clutch
    Light weight Flywheel 18# instead of 31#

    Interior Bits

    Nice X how about some pics under the hood, interior suspension. We want to see it, did you drop it couple of inches?
    I had an 09 in Black pearl sweet ride, I did a lot of mods from URD enough to get 325 rwhp.
    it was a lot of fun, driving was like on rails had it up over 140 a few times I miss it now.Just had to sell it. I bought it for 18K out the door had it for 2 years and sold for 19k, personally the 1GRFE has a weak block. Not happy when you boost them.

    Still on stock suspension I just went with the smallest 18” KO2s they make to fill the wheel well gap. Yeah the block is definitely a weak point but I don’t ever plan to go crazy with this thing, with the available running options people are getting a lot more of of it though. I’ll just keep it light and breezy for now.
    Were you boosted or just had all the bolt on mods?

    You’re on the XR thread buddy. We don’t have lifted mall crawlers with a million lights. That’s not our thing. Thanks for stopping by tho. Enjoy the truck op. Do whatever makes you happy and keep us updated.

    Scratch that... it turns out I need a new fuel pump.

    So I ordered the 255LPH fuel pump and in-line fuel filter upgrade.
    New Air intake filter
    Light weight Flywheel because it was on sale.

    Like, so many.
    I don't know much about lowered truck culture, but I'm curious why you chose an AT tire over a street tire.

    Almost empty this morning and it was barely drive able. Then filled it up and I can’t get it to have problems. Was gonna have the fuel pressure tested next week, but I want to have the new fuel pump in hand and need the tank to be empty.

    Wanted to fill the wheel well gap without lowering the truck. Unsure if this one will be a drift truck or rally runner in the future. I also think it looks really good.
