It's a piazza, it's a Nissan Sylvia, no it's a Toyota. What ever it is it's fully sick bro.

It worries me when I see "BIG" injectors.
And Haltechs.

But 710kW ain't too bad. It might come close to beating my old Florian off the line....

Might be a tighter photo finish than the Melbourne cup, eh?

Geeeeeeze... I like the original dash, and there's nothing wrong with Isuzu 4Z engines.. but I spose if you want 710rwkw, that's a pretty good way to get it. Wow. At least they did something nuts, and brought Piazzas into the limelight for a second!

LOL! I did say start.....

I only had the 150HP build (or 230HP with cams and forged pistons).

But that 300Nm @ 2kRPM and in a 1,000kg vehicle (as opposed to the 1,350kg Piazza) is quite effective. (Especially when you consider my entire cost of !$2k - ie, $500 Florian, $750 for 2 G200Ws & 1 5-spd box, $20 exhaust, then the DCOE45s & inlet manifolds.)
And back then I went DCOE because I wasn't prepared to spend the ~$4k for the Haltech which - back then was the choice. Now (ironically) it would be a nice cheap Delco ($100) with a self-tuning extension. (Haltech's 32 maps - what a JOKE!! But as for twin injectors....)

Anyhow, that G200W doubled the Florian's acceleration (compared to a st'd G200W or 4ZC1-t) - and assuming normal street RPM were used (ie, to 3kRPM, maybe 4k).
No Officer - I wasn't racing! I was only at twice idle speed.

True power: when you have to upgrade the clutch!

Yeah I love the original dash/console too. The guy who owns the car has obviously made the decision to keep the shell only. The rest is re-engineered. Heck even the door trims are different. But I do like that Dana 60 4link setup though. This probably the most radical/extreme Piazza I have ever seen because it's such a departure from the norm. The use of the Piazza name is described very loosely in this case.

Hmmm - a Toyota engine, and still being run in - in my experience that often means run out.
I wonder ifthe price may come down - ie, to maybe 10%; especially considering the front LH damage.

Though the name Khoury rings a bell (I think from other Isuzu forums), I hope it's not from the Do not deal with Charbel Khoury Public Warnings as per fairtrading.nsw.gov.au-20140619_public_warning_do_not_deal.page & facebook-FairTradingNSW-567358900041276!

Engine and ancillaries would have to come out to straighten everything out, but I'd say he'd be very negotiable.

I sent him a message yesterday asking him a couple of things, but haven't had a reply from him yet.
