when i got the engine it had a blown up rad, both tps had been removed, the rubber on the maf was gone, and the ecu was on the seat. everything with a carb starts. it would probly fart right now if i jammed a rag with gas in it and gave power to the starter...
the panels for the dash were covered in rust. i can only assume condensation build up from over the years does this??
the car started out blue. it got painted black maby 5 years ago. The inside wants black paint too I just know it. hope to get on that tomarrow. and its going to start with those ugly rusty looking quarter glass retainers.
well my new engine arrived today! free shipping and delivery to my house. i unloaded it with my old mans fork lift. it took 7 days and about 5 hours from time of cleared payment for the engine to arrive.
its on the flat deck of my buddies custom 1st gen 12 valve cummins.
ah dam its good to see some good old efi. only plug i dont got is the chassis plug
the celsior floor mat was under the oil pan. i noticed right away the dif. between the ls400 1uz and celsior or maby its a year difference.
ive got lots of work ahead of me... maby get the motor bolted down after work if im not to beat.
i have a 92? lexus ls 400 manual but im not sure if it includes diagrams. so i need diagrams and ecu pinout. possibly a pinout for all the chassis plugs aswell. if any one has info i would greatly apreciate it. running without a trans in about a week or two is my goal. although i may be pooched without the chassis plug for the ecu...
found what i need and it would apear that i have a 96? or possibly newer 1uzfe/ecu because it seems to match what i have for ecu connectors.
i do not have the 28 pin connector...
pins1-4 is my oxygen sensors.
Pin9 is ignsw
pin12 spdm goes speedo
pin14 is batt
pin22 is +B it will get power from my efi relay.
pin24 MREL goes to my efi relay
i think that should get me running when all is wired with the circuit open relay and efi relays. new pump, new battery, and of course after i power the starter connect all grounds, and power my coils ill get back with an update on the progress but i need a few things before i get started.
got the engine in. almost finished my wiring just need add power to the ingiters/coils/injectors, and a few other odds and ends.
under the impression it is a 1996.
it would apear these models did not come with egr. you can see the block off plate in the picture below.
got the new pump in yesterday. sorting everything out as i go. just a little bit more wiring, and a few fuel line fittings and filter then its startup time.
I've got some pics ill upload later. Had to take the engine back out and swap pans with my 91 1uzfe(same front sump) due to a fracture in the pan almost an inch 1/2 long. All sealed back up with squeez gasket. I'm happy I got to look inside. She was clean. No sludge or chunks of piston.:thumbsup:
the savage crack in the old pan.
on to more interesting things. test fit trans.
the 1uzfe/engine mount combo moves the w58 forward aprox. 3 inches.(billym's shift bushings installed...) best seen in this picturte:
was looking at a bunch of w58 crossmembers i have and the best fit was definatly the stock one flipped around. i got 3 bolts the forth will need some metal added to the crossmember.
thinking of getting a custom throttle cable made. the stock one is really short. it does not reach by a long shot.
so here is a picture showing the 4th hole with no bolt in it.
i don't have a whole lot of metal fabricating tools. a drill press would have been great for this. an 18volt dewalt is gona have to do though along with an angle grinder and welder.
used the angle grinder to cut a piece of 1.5inch square stock. i kept the 90 degree bends on either side for strength.
cutt off the excess metal, gloss black rust paint and its done!
next update soon!
Alright gents, low and behold i think a first ever for a celica supra? ford 351W with c6 automatic swap. before i get stoned to death hear me out! car has a blown 5mge and a bad transmission, interior is shot and needs repairs everywhere. the good is everything else is okay! i have a great...
My Ford 5.0 HO swap has begun. For anyone interested, I will be keeping this tread updated with the project as I go.
Purchase a running 5.0 HO Mustang. (Done) Most of this car is useless except for the engine, trans and accessories. The transmission was replaced with the SVT T5 5...
Sort of a unorthodox thought when it comes to these cars. But i want to get some opinions and maybe even advice on doing these big swaps in our cars.
Here’s the scenario. I’ve been making decent progress on resurrecting my 85 5-Speed 5MGE I bought in the summer. I’ve gone from a car that would...
I've been thinking about this for a month or so. My replacement 5m has been a bit of a problem lately:32: and i was why not do a swap that seems to have not been done yet (i said seems because i think i read about some one doing and ls swap on an 85 supra but it had a supercharged v6 in it...
I'm sure you guys won't mind a V12 swap amongst the V8s.
I almost got a 1UZ swap running then found a 1GZ on Yahoo Auctions Japan, instructed an importer to bid and then shock! I won.
They are a strange beast, 5.0 Litre quad cam, 48 valve, drive by wire twin throttles & twin ecus.
