As of tonight my 2JZGE conversion is complete! :rockon:

It going into be registered over the next couple of days! I can't wait to have a proper drive and actually wind it out to 6000rpm :D

Once the tacho was wired up i established i was probably only going to around 3500-4000rpm :)

The conversion keeps the W58, uses a JZA80 W58 bellhousing and custom engine mounts that bolt onto the 5M mounts.

Power steering feels much better than stock!

The exhaust utilises the factory manifolds with 2 inch secondaries joining into a 2.5in collector and 3in hi flow cat...with some such massive ricey muffler at the back, it is well loud! :twisted:

Only other mod is an extended intake with pod filter to get it into the corner of the bay out of the heat.

Here are some pictures, but the battery died in the camera and ive been too busy getting everything back together! (You will need to copy and paste them into a new window as they dont work as links)

How much did the whole thing cost you and how long did it take? I'm thinking of "maybe" doing a 1JZ swap way down the line because in the states, the 2JZs are really expensive. I can get a full 1JZ front clip for $2,500 easily.

PS: I can't get the pics to work.

And which 1JZ front clip are you getting???

The JZA70 MKIII is not a straight drop in, you will have oil pan clearance issues w/ the crossmember.

If you are doing a JZXxx Chaser front clip, then yes, it drops straight in.

Information came from Frank in AUS, when he did his 1J conversion.

All up, im not sure yet because i havent added everything together yet, ballpark figure would be around AU$4000.

The engine, loom, ecu, flywheel, starter set me back AU$1400.

Its everything else that adds up!

And yes you need a front sump off a chaser or Mark II.

The 1JZGE, 1JZGTE, 2JZGE, 2JZGTE sumps are all compatible with each other. Remember to get the oil pickup with it!

Best bet is to buy a manual chaser cut, but everyone wants these!

Then sell the R154and make a mint back on that! and you still have a manual ecu! Use a JZA80 w58 bellhousing :)

Oh cool, that's good news. I'm actually not the one that'll be doing the swap, but I'll be providing the money and the motivation (cause it's my car hehe) and my friends will be doin it with me. I checked out a place that's not too far from me that's got jzx100 front clips for like $2,000 so I when I get the money (which will be a couple months down the line) I plan on doing the 1JZ swap.

Being in CA you will have problems getting it smogged. The 1J was never here in the US so the smog perple don't consider it "legal" from what I have heard. If you can get around the smog headache go for it. Other than that it is a sweet way to go if you can do some fabrication yourself.

Umm, that WAS a JZX100 clip (ie VVTi ct26). They cost nearly as much as 2JZs here in Australia as well. When I was looking, the cheapest I could find was nearly Aus. $6K. Since seen them for $4.5K Aus.

More happy JZA61ers, yay!

yeah and your also a hop skip and jump away from Japan :wink:
Actually, when it comes to shipping via oceanfreight distance does not mean all that much. The reason these motors are so expensive here is because they know you want them. Whether 1J,2J,7M,6M, they'll all likely come from Japan. If you can find a reliable source in Japan or Australia, shipping will be no more than USD 350.00 max to a semi-major North American city. Dont bombard me with questions. If you're serious, look in your local yellow pages under "Freight Forwarders ". You're going to want to get one that has their own groupage containers from the far east or Australia. If they say yes, then ask for their Minimum ocean rate and their per cubic metre or 1000 kilo rate.
I can submit more info for a sticky if anyones interested.

thanks. nice install. btw, did you happen to take measurements of the mounts when you made them? that would help alot. a friend of mine works at a shop and all they work on is mkiv's and he wants to see a mkii with a 2jzgte in it in person and knows i can get it done. he told me he would be able to get me the complete setup pretty reasonable so i may go this route when i get my tax return in a few months. but right now im just researching so it will go as smooth as possible.

Now I'm inspired. I'm ready to either rebuild the 6M or transplant; you've made the decision easier. Now you need to do a write-up on the install; I'm all ears :worship:
