And so it begins, after 5 months of research and parts hunting.


Oooh shiny flywheel (thanks JZ series for being manual-swap friendly)


Had to replace the water pump pulley, might as well do 3 lightweights for half the price of the single OEM.


And where it's headed, since I haven't show it off in a while.

YOINK! My buddy poses with the old hunk of iron. That thing was significantly heavier than the new one.

I do not honestly know, but I got lucky in that it's VVTi but with a mechanical fan and throttle by cable, instead of hydraulic fan and electronic throttle, which is vastly more common. For $600 delivered I suspended thinking and started buying.

It has, so far, shared a lot more parts with an SC300 than we were anticipating, so while it's a true JDM model that never appeared in the states, a lot of stuff is available over the counter. When it's all done I'll do a rundown of the parts I had to buy.

Weird, these things are basically identical to the is300 2jzge.

The really rare one is the direct injection 1jzge...

The 1jz ge is a 2.5 liter, and overbore motor (more bore than stroke). Same configuration as my 1jzgte, just less turbos. Should rev nice, similar power to a 6m but a bit less torque perhaps?

Correct that it's basically a short stroke 2JZ. I expect right around 200 ft lbs and hp and fast revs, especially with the 16lb flywheel.
I'm trying to keep it's NA spirit in tact as well as keep reliability high, so this engine made a lot of sense. Since it's the turboless redheaded stepchild, they are cheap too.

How hard is it to find a header for that thing? 2jzge header probably wont fit. Then again, just because the turbo heads are different, might get lucky and the n/a heads be the same exhaust flange pattern.

Impossible according to my research, every last thing you get is a turbo manifold. Using the stock one...for now. If someone has a pro tip on a 2JZ header, fill me in. The entire top end is pretty much 2J on this thing.

In case anyone didn't believe that you can swap in an SC300 bellhousing, here ya go. We used the old fork because the T/O bearing clip and the clutch actuator both told us it was the right thing to do. The pivot balls were different but Mr. 19MM socket and Zippy the impact gun made quick work of that. I should have taken a before shot, the oil leaks were so bad the 5M bell was entirely coated on the inside. Saves on clutch wear I guess, hahaha.

Actually, I already learned the 1J and 2J flange patterns differ, but maybe there's some super secret design the internet doesn't know about yet.

If it's anything like the turbo 1jz vvti, then the exhaust port for cyl 1 and 2 are really close together, and the same for 5 and 6. This is very different from a 2jz manifold. Mind taking a picture of the top of the exhaust manifold?

I will photograph it when I'm back over there, we're doing it at my friend's house where the hoist and welder and $10k in other tools reside. This motor is really unpopular LOL, so aftermarket manifolds that aren't turbo are just not a thing people seem to build, when multiple turbo configurations were available from the factory.

We found quite a few videos from Russia and NZ of folks roasting tires with one of these, so my hopes are up.

SIGN ME UP.

Get a 2jzge exhaust manifold gasket and see how it lines up. If it fits, your good to go. I run a supra 2jzge header on my gs300. Tight fit, but should clear easier on the mk2 since it has more room on the sides of the engine bay.

Maybe. That is a dramatically different exh manifold design compared to what any 2jzge comes with. Definitely all of the 1jzgte stuff uses a different pattern then the 2jzs.

But worst case, that actually isn't that bad of a header design. The runners are a little short and the collector is a little bunched up, but the primaries are already tubular mandrel bent and look fairly equal length. You probably won't do too bad just making a custom downpipe right off that flange. Also with a displacement limited motor like this, going too big on the piping may kill your bottom end and mid-range.

For now I'm just happy to see stock headers, and we'll downpipe right from there. The previous owner actually put some decent exhaust on the car, so it's mostly getting reused.
