fella whos crazy about Toyota Cressida cars worldwide. 5M-GE
engine?....a rare breed to get/find in Malaysia, correct me if im
wrong. So to make life easier, Toyota engines is easier to fit into Toyota
wglee, u mentioned of a shop called United Motors in Sunway? its not in
Sunway, i checked in the yellow pages and Garang Racing was in there and
also a website to it, i accessed the site, and searched for the address
since you said that its next door. The shop is located in PJ Old Town =)

Majestic but i couldnt see United Motors, i'll go there again on Monday
since it seems that Saturdays and Sundays they are closed and open on
weekdays. I was suprised to see that its inside there, because i was
thinking of a workshop with cars everywhere....is it in Sunway or in PJ
Old Town? or are there 2 shops?

cannot recall the address. Will try to search for old receipts and get
their address. Meanwhile, call them at 03-56388018 for directions. Ask
for Ah Kiat (he can speak English), failing which ask for Ah Thau (speak
BM to him if you can speak Chinese).

this car, my Cressida hit a soft part in me, the body is still a beauty
and its big and im big also(not by width)=P altho its been 15 years...so,
its good, the car is coming back to life once again and will hit the roads
this year after 5 years. I will update this forum, its for all Cressida
drivers out there(if there are one)who does not have any idea on servicing

part says that to perform a complete engine transplant for something more
powerful than the original capacity of the engine, it must not be more
than 25% from the original engine capacity. Since my Cressida comes with
the original 2.0 engine, 25% means how much more can put under the hood?
in capacity i mean... 2.2? 2.4? Advise me please. Thanks again =)

Alternatively, you could stick to 2000cc and see if Toyota has a
turbocharged 2000cc engine that could fit your car. I think the first
generation Toyota Soarer and 2nd generation Toyota Supra have such an
engine (in-line six, DOHC EFI turbo) for the Japanese domestic market
which could fit your Cressida.
