Let me introduce my self my name is Gerald I have been a creeper on here for a few years.  I recently purchased a 1990 x83 that I am planning on making a clean fun car for me and my family to have fun with.  

 

I purchased a car from a friend of mine that had already had a auto na 2jz installed that his wife used to drive.   But he wanted to keep the motor for another project this was fine for me as I only wanted the shell so that I could put my 2jzgte/r154 combo in it.

I picked up the motor package by buy a s14 someone had in there storage unit for 1700 bucks after parting out what was left of the car.  I have my motor and trans with a hd act clutch and light weight flywheel.

I started tearing into the motor last week to see what parts i needed to order and found alot of questionable work.  Lots of FIPG over metal gaskets and even the valve covers then no gasket on the IAc valve.

Kinda sorta,

 

I ended up wrecking it after I moved up to WA, but I built another one and used most of the good parts from my old one including the whole interior haha.  Body isn't as clean but that will be remedied if the car can stay in one piece for a couple more months.

 

Thats too bad about the SC it looked pretty rad!  Gives high hopes for the cressida though!

During disassembly of the motor finding the abundance of FIPG on the valve cover gaskets this took some time to get all scrapped off and ready for the new seals

Welcome to jzxp

Good luck with the X83 project

 

 

But yeah,your friend should be tied up by his ankles and dragged behind his dodge truck for putting such hideous wheels on that coal roller of his :thumbsdown:




take off the oil cap, then shit into the valvetrain. if you are like most 7m owners, the semen content will act as a sealant and prevent your hg from blowing for the next 100 miles or so. repeat as necessary.

So what's going to fail first, the stock crank dampener, or the stock belt tensioner ?

From what I have observed over the years is that they are about as dependable as 7M head gaskets....

 

What engine is in the Z ?

Gordo 

I am going to guess the Tensioner bearing haha since the bearing is already done. 

I have a new bearing on the way and will replace that when it come in.

 

The datsun has a stock LS1/T56 most hate the swap but I have had a hand full of L28 motors with different configurations.  So when it came to wanting a little more power with was the path i took and I love it no more carb issues or lack of power taking the car up north in the mountains.  Here is some engine bay pictures the interior I redid all stock except for Speedhut gauges that appear stock.

JZ swaps are getting ridiculous, auto aristo motorsets are close to $4k here now. It's getting to be about even money between that and an LS swap.

 

glad there's no RB shit under that hood.



My friend that lives in US showed me CraigsList while we search for my Cressida. You find lots of odd things on that site. Lots of fat US girls looking for a free ride from black basketball type American man.

I would never have a RB I dislike that motor so much just has to many issues.  

The LS was a fairly basic swap and very easy with all things considered and has plenty of room with out cutting up the actual body of the car. 

 

Yes, JZ Motors are going up in price like crazy I remember paying 700 bucks for my 1jz motor from a importer in 2008  and 1500 for a 2jzgte vvti in 2012
