EDIT: 23OCT2013


I got the car running in 2010 and blew the engine in 2012, poor tuning by myself and fuel where the problems. Thought I drop this post from page 40... up front to save you some time scrolling to find the cool pics. Haha

Well little update on the plan for the car, both to inform you guys and to keep myself from going crazy over here. haha So I've decided to scrap most of what I've put into the car. From the pistons in the block to the fuel pump feeding the engine. So in good old fashion I'll put a list up to keep myself on track and to maybe put the word out on the parts I'm looking for.

Purchased Parts:
- Greddy 4 Row intercooler
- Hypertune Intake manifold
- Precision 7675 CEA Billet wheel
- ID2000 Injectors

Parts in search of:
- GSC BeeHive Springs
- GSC Stage 2 cams
- Ferra 1mm Oversize Valves
- Titan Billet Tensioner
- Titan Billet Mains
- Titan Adjustable Cam Gears
- AEM infinty 10
- Aeromotive Pro Series Fuel Pump
- Aeromotive Pro Series EFI regulator
- Aeromotive Billet Speed Pump Controller
- Gates Racing Timing Belt
- BC coilovers
- .... to be continued as I dream more over here. haha

If anyone has suggestions or changes they would like to recommend let me know. Post it up lets have a conversation, I'm bored and have nothing but time to kill. haha This is the last time I want to build this car haha Also if anyone has leads on parts someone is trying to sell let me know.

Thanks,
Leon

I see you rebuilt the 2j did you have any problems getting the harmonic balancer off to take the timing components off. because I have tried damn near everything to get the bolt out. I've tried light heat from a butane torch, impact gun, 3 foot breaker bar and prybar on the flywheel to hold the crank still. but my compressor is only a 20 gallon 1.5 horsepower. but I even turned the presure up to 150 psi and my husky impact still didn't take it off and my husky impact is rated at 600 ft lbs in reverse. IDK any thoughts on my issue?

I didn't have that much trouble, wow.

What I did was, removed oil pan (upper and lower) placed a bar with a towel wrapped around it between the crankshaft and block (wedge affect). Then I used a breaker bar and "cheater bar" on that. It broke free first try, BTW this was on an engine stand.

Side note, we took apart my friends 7m-gte today and the harmonic balancer bolt was finger tight!! Not so good..

Sorry I'm not really made much of any progress.

What i have done and it has always worked. Heat up the bolt till it is about red hot and then use an impact imedialtely to get it off. A guy that used to work for honda taught me that and it is how they did it in the dealership.
You cant lightly heat it, you gotta make it red hot.

This is also a good way to wreck your harmonic balancer fyi.

Using something to wedge the crankshaft in place with the oil pan off is also not such a good idea, can stress rods, rod caps, mains, and the crank itself in unusual ways.

Good way to ******* it is if its in the car put a breaker bar onto the bolt and against the ground, then bump the starter, it should loosen it. This can in theory hurt the starter though.

With it on a stand you have more to worry about, get a buddy to help hold things in place. Very big screwdriver or buy the tool that Toyota mechanics use that bolts to the block and bites into the flywheel teeth to keep it from turning.

You can also make one from an old starter and some welding, that will bolt into the starter location, can be used in or out of the car.

Although I've done this myself many times before (I do consider myself an experienced mechanic), I would NEVER recommend this to anyone, especially newbies. You can get seriously injured doing it this way.

Being that it is about ready to snow, I thought I would tear in to the 2JZ-GTE project. I had to give the 6M-GE at least one last summer.

Below are pictures of the removal which went along rather smoothly!





Lost the pictures somehow over the years.. will update again if I find them -- 2009
