The JZX90 shouldn’t need an introduction and is commonly referred to as one of the most under rated vehicles Japan has ever built. This 1993 Tourer V example is no exception! Having just 77k original miles on the clock this Mark II has been perfectly modified and well maintained during it’s life in Japan. The exterior has been transformed from the stubble unassuming stock version to a much more aggressive and stylish ride. The front bumper has N1 bumper inserts borrowed from a GTR along with a Vertex style front lip. The side skirts are also Vertex and pair perfectly with the front bumper. The wheels have been upgraded with a set of 18″ Work Bersaglio wheels which have a sporty yet classy look to them. The exterior was originally a pearl white and has been changed to a more sporty pure white and it’s a bit more fitting for a sporty sedan. The paint is in great condition and has no major defects. There are a few small door dings, but otherwise no major damage on the body. The front lip and side skirts are FRP and as with all fiberglass parts minor waves are to be expected. Overall the exterior looks killer on this clean Mark II Tourer V!
Jumping in the drivers seat you’ll notice a Bride Brix reclinable bucket seat which does have some wear to the drivers side bolsters, a very common issue with Bride seats. The passenger seat and rear seats are very clean and free of any major wear. The interior as a whole is quite nice and all of the power features function including cold AC! The dash has a few Defi gauges mounted on it to monitor engine vitals, and aside from a difficult to notice crack under the gauges, the dash is very clean. An aftermarket steering wheel, shift knob, and radio have also been added to the very comfortable interior. The trunk has all of the oem panel intact and is also in good condition.
The main reason the JZX90 chassis is such an underrated car is the drive train and of course the chassis itself. The engine is a twin turbo 2.5l 1JZ-GTE capable of reliable large horsepower and known for being easy to modify. While the transmission is the stout R154 5 speed. Since the majority of JZX90’s were automatic from the factory finding an original 5 speed can be near impossible. This example has had a transmission swap at some point and appears to have used all OEM parts and done very well. In addition to this upgrade a Greddy Front Mount Intercooler has also been added both increasing horsepower up and making the front bumper look fantastic. A Greddy hard pipe upper radiator hose and a Blitz air filter have been added as well. To extract more power and even better sound a 3″ Apexi catback was installed and looks and sounds phenomenal! This Mark II runs, drives, shifts, and accelerates extremely well and is ready to be driven home today!
