This Nissan Cefiro A31 wasn’t really this awesome to begin with. Toycool Garage started off with a stock Cefiro with only the wheels being the aftermarket pieces that are visible on the car. But I guess I can say that Toycool Garage has turned this simple toy into a totally cool ride in their garage.
Read more as we take you through the impressive buildup and customization process that Toycool Garage has done to turn an old Cefiro into a powerful and stunning machine.
Here’s how the Cefiro looked like to begin with. Aftermarket wheels make it unique, but not quite cool enough for the people of Toycool Garage.
So Toycool Garage has started with the journey to get the right looks and performance that the A31 Cefiro deserves. It was out with the old, and in with the new, as the stock engine has been replaced with a more powerful Nissan RB20DET engine and transmission combo.
Here’s the RB20DET engine now fitted into the engine bay. Also seen are the JDM intercooler pipes, attached to the Apexi Hybrid intercooler.
The rear differential has also been replaced with that of a Nissan R32 Skyline, with a Limited-Slip Differential to allow it to tackle the curves drift-style!
Toycool Garage decided to maximize the potential of the RB20DET so along with the installation, they have also modified and tuned the engine for more power. The rebuilt engine now has a metal head gasket, new valve seals, low-compression pistons for more boost, new main bearings, and a few more nitty-gritty items such as an ARC Blow-Off Valve, GReddy downpipe, Trust Turbo Intake Pipe, Aftermarket 3-inch exhaust system with JDM Muffler, Exhaust Silencer Flap, a Turbonetics Manual Boost Controller, and a Nismo Boost Gauge. Also seen in this shot is the Cusco front strut bar.
After the power modifications, next on the list came the drop-dead gorgeous looks courtesy of a Wonder Body Kit.
The Wonder body kit, combined with suspension modifications such as RSR Springs, Tein Camber Plates, a fresh new interior with a new Head Unit and 4-Speaker System, makes this ride not only look, but handle like a dream – a dream made possible by Toycool Garage.
