Striving for Perfection. My 2J swap
Ok lets start from the beginning. Back in 1984 my dad got a Celica GT. No that’s to far back. In 1996 I got my first supra a 1983. No still to far back. In 2000 I swapped in my first 7M without knowing anything about online help. No we can do better. I got my 84 in 2002 when my 83 was backed over by a truck. Still to far back. Hummm In 2007 I decided to do a full restoration…….. Screw it last year I had a friend approach me asking me if I could help him get his MK3 running so he could sell it to his friend witch led to an offer to buy my 7M setup from me. Glenn (the devil my best friend) kept dropping 2J in my ear. “Sell Ronnie your motor and go 2J” So I did. Just before Vegas last year I hammered out a deal to sell my 7M. 2008 Vegas was my 7Ms last hera in a MK2! With fresh dyno numbers I pulled out my motor to send it home to a fat pig. Yes Duane "PIG"
o he got a bigger turbo
The deal was on a payment plan so it took some time for me to get up funds to buy my very first 2JZGTE. Finally I got to order my motor.
Living in California made this an interesting project because I cant just slap a single on it and be done. Though I was thinking about an SP61 or GT35 for a killer street setup. Dam smog…. Anyway I decided to go OBD2 with a brand new 1998 harness. With that and a chit lode of new parts the build began.
I stripped down the motor and pulled the rod and main caps off to check the bearings. They looked perfect. So I ordered new ones and installed them.
After that the motor got new pumps and assembled for mock ups
Next I made some motor mounts just to make another set of motor mounts.
For all thinking O Daves got a extra set of mounts now. No I don’t Mark already bought my mockup mounts.
One thing I hated from day one is the dogleg for an oil cooler/filter mount. So I decided to fix that. Take one 5m oil filter nut form the block one threw bolt form a 2j oil thing and a nut. Cut paste and BAM you have an adapter on your block.
@ this point I had made some big $ decisions and they started showing up. An OSGIKEN Twin STR clutch showed up.
Followed by my turbo selection. Twin GT28 turbos with stock housing machined to fit. This is like an up graded CT26 but this is a true GT28 with just the outer housings machined to fit the GT28 center section. Known as the STU turbos. Should make high 400s on 91 pump gas and high 500s to low 600s on race gas. RWHP that is.
With the new turbos I had to make water and oil lines witch I forgot to take pics of… You can kinda see them in a latter shot. I also went this everything U.S speck I.E cams and injectors.
The next big problem was to mount my Jim King 7M AC compressor on my 2J.
Big thanks to Zank for letting me use his compressor as min was still in the car charged. So with Zanks compressor for mock up I modded a 7m bracket to fit onto the 2j using the stock serpentine belt.
Another thing was I wonted to keep the clutch fan and 7m 10 blade fan so I had to fined a combination that would fit the 2j pump and the 7m fan but fit with the limited room I have between the rad and water neck. With some help form are friendly pars guy (Mad dog Mark… his mom makes grate cookies!!) We came up with a Tundra clutch fan.
So with the cutch on, the motor was ready to go in. O the OS had a cool push to pull conversion too. You can see in this shot I added egr to the motor witch ment I had to drill the head to do this.
So now the motor is in. not plumed and I still have to do the wiring but the motor is in all pretty and painted.
ok i have more work to do. Normally i wouldn't post up till its done but im board tonight and im not shore when ima have time to finish the car. So here it is so far.
FAN CLUTCH UPDATE
MORE PICS IN POST......42, 57, 70, 74, 81, and 88

wow. nice work so far dave. your car makes me wish i had the talent to swap my own motor.
p.s. i think it would look sweet if you painted the raised lines on the front of the cam cover white as well.

you've been holding out on me! you didn't tell me it was in!
excellent work dave it looks like its turning out to be really nice! the car should be a beast when it fires up. This engine setup is something I really wanted to see in a mk2 and would love to do someday, as you know. have you decided on engine management yet? what did you use to make the turbo lines (just roughly, like, braided earl's style stuff?)
keep up the good work and best of luck!
