@Whitey842, I have not mounted the I/C or piping yet. This is all just mock up on the old motor. I have a MS2 in the car, but the new engine will be getting a MS3 Pro. I have a 2JZGTE as well on the stand. I would like to find a 75-77 Celica to put my 6M with the HKS Weber kit, T56, and Mk1 axle in, and then put the 2JZGTE in my 86 MK2. Otherwise, I may put the 2JZGTE in a 03-04 V6 mustang and swap to a built 8.8 solid rear, full cage, sub frame connectors, etc....First though, I have to fix the turbo manifold I got from Sound Performance, and finish getting the garage cleaned out so I can strip my 84 down for stitch welding, full mock up, paint, etc..
As for the oil filter relocation, the one on the engine in the pics is going away. It worked fine as I would lay it in an empty oil pan before removing the filter, but on the new engine, it will have 10AN fittings right on the block for the oil pump feed and oil main return. I have an Earls billet oil filter mount and oil thermostat, but need to figure out where to mount them. I will wait untill I have the Intercooler mounted and I/C piping done, and the new radiator, 30 row oil cooler, etc.. installed. I also have to figure out where to mount the power steering reservoir, and which reservoir to run. I have found a couple after market ones that look nice, but i have to take measurements of possible mounting locations first.
