    FS/FT: 1.5JZ 400+hp Motorset

    I remember wanting/trying to buy this from miles. Not to thread jack or anything but this does NOT come with a transmission and has some kind of misfire issue above 6500 rpm that was never fixed. according to miles, other than that it is fine and starts up good luck with sale, pretty good deal regardless

    Looking for new engine

    Hey guys, I'm looking to swap out my 7m to a jz...I've looked all over the place, and can't find one less than 1k. I don't need it to be turbo, and right now the price is one of my biggest concern. I just need something I can practice with for now and will last me for some time (my 7m lasted barely half an event -___-). I live in SoCal, so if you guys have any good deals or saw any...shoot me a message please! I'd greatly appreciate any help. Julie Van

    Yeah, i decided not to go with it. It seems very shady especially with its seemingly mix match set up. I wouldnt be suprised if the wiring was all hacked up either. 1JZ it is.

    Well, i found a 2jz for 200 dollars more. That is a small price difference for a 2jz. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JDM-TOYOTA-...#ht_1344wt_1165 This is already front sump which is awesome. It doesnt state so but that looks like a R154. Not sure if it comes with an igniter either. I would now either need JZX81 or flipped JZX90 brackets to make it work right? As for the water pump, how is this one set up? Does this one look alright? If you were in my shoes, would you get this 1jz (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270480950219&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_11027wt_1165) or this 2jz

    ebay listing states it was removed from a chaser. You think this is a good buy? This will bolt up to the crossmember?

    okay i decided to just go 1JZ swap. My brother/dad will help me with the swap. on ebay, i found this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...ht_11027wt_1165 Comes with ignitor, ecu, wiring, etc. I can upgrade my w58 to a r154 in the mean time. I believe this should be MOST of what i need, correct? Do the mounts on that engine work with the mounts on the cressida? I also think i need to buy a MAP sensor too, if its not included. I couldnt find it in the picture Anything else i might need for the swap other than buying new seals, fabricating the intake and i/c piping, and wiring?

    so the bellhousing from a 2JZ SC300, doenst matter whether its auto or manual. I can reuse my clutch, pp, flywheel, and throwout bearing? will both SC300 and cressida mounts work?

    Looking for new engine

    let me make some stuff clear. My cressida has a 7MGE with a W58 already. If i go 2JZ N/A, will my factory mounts and w58 bolt up? What flywheel/clutch to run? Also, i am guessing that i HAVE to use 2jZ electronics. Correct me if i can use 7m electronics and whether it is recommended. I dont mind forking extra to use 2jz electronics My brother will be assisting me with the swap (the guy who you guys were afraid was me) (his own car: http://www.socal-drift.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2682 ). He told me he sees tons of SC's with 2JZ's at the junk yard. He was wondering if its okay to run that engine, auto ecu, all the electronics, and follow the write up in the members section such as wiring into the body harness, etc. Also, anything i should be sure to take from the 2JZ car at the junkyard? Probably have it rebuilt after we pull it.

    that's true... i just feel like... things are going so slow with my cressida... i feel like i'm lazying out... d you guys know that feeling? i almost feel guilty for leaving my cressida in the garage for so long without giving it nice hard rides around the tracks...then again...it's not like i have a ton of money to spend right now either...

    Alrighty! NA 2j it is then! I found a BUNCH at the junkyard...do you think it's trustworthy...if so...what would be a good price for them...also max price?

    Alright you guys. This is the final call. I HAVE to get this engine swapped by the end of this year...meaning 2.5 months! I need to FINALLY decide which engine to put in. I'm leaning towards 2j na, but lots have been advising me to go with 1j turbo. what is your say in it? Factors to put into consideration: 1) cost (under 1k) 2) reliability (i want to be able to use it for a lot of events...something that will last me for awhile) 3) difficulty of swapping...I'll be doing it myself based on research...and it'll be my first swap, so I don't want to have to redo it because I messed up. I'm a college kid, so very little money. =( Thanks, Julie Van

    i saw that one too! i actually msged iheartmx78 about that one! i wasn't sure if it looked like a good and safe deal. i'm jealous that iheart got his 2jzge for $200 and it works no problem. it'd be sooooo sweet if i could get a deal like that.
