    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    It's just me, but I think efrain should take care of that..... If he doesn't, he should get shown the door. This is the kind of shit like I've seen Beach Performance, Techno-trash, The Mexican fiberglass guy, and on some items, XM put out. Ranks right up there with chinese RX-7 oil coolers that don't fit, and have the wrong threads in the ports.

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    Uhhh... yeah, this definitely doesn't fit all JZ's. It fits on the motor just fine, but the alternator doesn't clear it. Here's the bracket laid on top of the alternator. There needs to be more of a relief cut into the bolting locations on the bracket for the alternator to fit. Using stock aristo alternator part number 27060-46260. I'm a little irritated. I get tired of having to hack up parts that are a supposed "drop in fit". I don't feel like grinding up my stock alternator to make this work. I don't feel like grinding up this bracket to make this work either. Fuck it, I'll just put it on the shelf and file it under my huge pile of "bought, but didn't/couldn't use" shit.

    Slight thread hijack... Why the fuck can you buy aftermarket carpet sets for an X7, but not the X8 ? ACC offers X7 carpet sets for $165-$220, but not the X8. Fuckers ! Wonder how close the X7 set comes to fitting the X8 ?

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    I was too impatient to wait for your reply, and money was burning a hole in my pocket. Bought the kit with the belt and paid for shipping. If you feel like refunding me the shipping, cool. If not, no big deal. Looking forward to getting it. I'll probably paint the thing black since the silver is a little too bright and flashy for my liking.

    We offer the bracket without the belt, (not much savings $10), but the No AC belt is different from the relocation belt. I'll give you the part number if you buy the bracket alone, but most people would just pay the $10 to get the belt. https://suspiciousgarage.com/products/suspicious-garage-1jz-2jz-alternator-relocation-kit-no-belt?_pos=4&_sid=6035c8d5b&_ss=r No ac belt, you can see the routing in the pic. Alt relocated uses a shorter belt than just the no ac pump belt. https://suspiciousgarage.com/products/1jz-2jz-ac-delete-belt?_pos=1&_sid=9708e0625&_ss=r email me directly and ill save you the shipping over buying on the site, just mention you're on JZXProject. sales@suspiciousgarage.com

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    I would definitely buy this solely for the fact that it would make my thick 4 gauge wire I have running around the block from the alternator to the starter much shorter. I agree with gordo, it would look much better anodized black. I have the XM ac delete kit, which uses a different belt than stock. I'm assuming this kit doesn't use the same belt as XM does, but if it does, would you sell the kit for marginally less without the belt? I'll probably buy this thing in its current non anodized state anyway though

    I like Technico's 7M oil pump drive shaft roller thrust bearing. It's a must if you plan on jacking the oil pressure up. Wait, no one here messes with a 7M besides me...... Never mind.......

    Gordo's X8 Ramblings

    Too late, already bought the Zeta IIIs. They were on sale at Evasive. Then bought these side covers out of Japan to protect them, only in Blue. Since the IIIs in blue are being discontinued, I'll probably buy some extra center pads while they are still available. Just waiting for the side mounts now, found some blue anodized ones.

    Look at Sabelt. I'm 6'1 ish, skinny ass and broad shoulders. The Taurus model from a few years back fits like a glove.

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    Main reason would be belt tossing, we had guys that weren't running the AC compressor that would toss belts from lack of that pulley. (long jump from crank pulley to PS pulley) Also at the FD level the heat was frying alternators, moving it to the cold side helps with that and free's up room on the exhaust side for turbo/manifold combos, assuming the stock water pump was also replaced with an electric pump (most FD cars run the radiator in the rear) Edit: whoremouth_jr beat me to it

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    ^^ away from the heat of tubular manifolds, plus not right under the water pump 😂 I guess being under the ps pump is just a trade-off. Plus x8s alternators are on that side, save yourself from having to extend the charge harness

    SG JZ Alternator Relocation Kit

    interesting idea. any reason it was moved to begin with? i like it simply to help the PS pump have another arm to make sturdy. oddly make the motor more compact

    Yeah, get rid of the scoop, leave the hole, mount a big fake supercharger on the cam covers of the JZ.... Just kidding of course. Nice progress. What are you going to do with the left over lawn mower engine ?

    ~18 months ago I purchased a RX80 Cressida (this one was actually used as a taxi by the previous owner) to replace my AE101 levin; and provide me with a nice reliable cruiser. The prev owner did a conversion to a 2c-t: and out it went: My original plan was to go with a 3sge, but after consulting with a few jzx members I decided to go with a n/a 2j: Changed the instrument panel from analog to digital: Few more random pics Next step is to sort out the brakes / suspension then to sort out a stereo etc... preemptive strike: yes gordo I will be getting rid of the fugly hoodscoop as soon as I find a bonnet to match the cresta nose cut I got.

    Money pit build

    A few more things picked up along the way. Seems like my money goes down the drain soon as I have some saved up. My dumbass decided to get married too. WTF was I thinking. This house is getting to me lol Fucking Cressida is never going to get done at this rate. Damn thing just sits in the garage most of the time. Also need to find a replacement A/C fan. Have to hit the bottom side of the glove box to get it working half the time. I picked up a used AEM EMS v2 along with a patch harness for the 1J wiring harness (which I still need to modify/repair) I also scored a pair of Recaros out of a Mk3 Supra TT R, need new seat covers though.

    Oooh put it in a shipping tube and tell me how much pretty plz? Also maybe ya got a driver front door handle?
  28. I sold my red cressida to some russian guy who pays me to work on it now, pretty sweet deal. I finally got around to upgrade the fuel system in the white cressida, 400whp got boring and i said fuck it. I was hoarding all these parts for about a year now and finally getting close to finishing it.
