    81 Supra PP 2JZ swap

    I bought my 81 over a year ago, dang time fly's. I have been playing around with it a little bit here and there. I mounted the spoiler with new brackets, the stock ones are missing, and mounted the rear window louvers, makes it look a lot better. I cleaned up the wheels and plastidipped them bronze. They look a little better but I want 16's or 17's. I didn't like the chrome on the grille peeling so I remover all of the chrome and painted it all black. I also sand blasted and repainted the headlight buckets.





    needs a dash pad

    I didn't get to spend much time on the supra with trying to build a desert truck, building and swapping a 7mgte into an 86 yota truck, rebuilding 3 22re's and a handful of other projects and flips I've been doing. But last week I got some free time to tear into my 2jz-ge and replace the plugs, dist which was damaged in the crash, power steering pulley and swap over to a Lexus gs300 front sump oil pan. I also ditched the a/c compressor. I bought a new serpentine belt tensioner puller and its too big by .25", got to return it and both of my engines have bad bearings on them so I found another engine with a good belt tensioner and bought the whole engine. Ohh and its an aristo 2JZ-GTE! Im going to slowly build it up for around 450hp and swap it and an R154 in later down the road once I get the suspension built.

    Pretty swank so far! Looking forward to more pics and write ups about the swap. I am researching options for doing a swaps in both my 81s but have never attempted anything like that before. I'd like to know how much of a headache it is using a 2jz vs an m-series.

    I am about to sell a whole lot of 81 parts, including a maroon dash pad so keep your eye out for that post if you are interested.

    I removed the boat anchor tonight, did some measuring and the oil pan will be perfect, the pass mt mount will be easy, but the drivers side mount is gonna be a pain, the oil filter housing is kind of in the way but I will make it work

    drained the oil and checked clearances



    and its out, need to do some cleaning...




    this thing needs a new home






    the new power plant, still need a new throwout bearing before I stab it in place.



    the only 2 things that are gonna fight me, shifter is way back and might interfere with e-brake and electronic speed sensor, but marlin crawler makes an adaptor for this
