    Going to JZ land. Purchased the 1j pictured above for 9 hundo. Now I have a dude, who just swapped a 2j-gte into his ls300 and is selling me the 2jz-ge with w58 and with an aristo auto tranny all for 800 lol. So obviously im going to construct a 1.5jz and use the w58 until it craps out. Just wondering a few things. Since im going to have a 2j head and 1j block sitting around, will they work together??? I heard about somone doing this, but information is limited. Also, to make the 1.5jz , im obviously going to need the metal 2jz-gte head gasket, studs, is there anything else i SHOULD be getting for it? The bottom end ran strong in its previous bay. Is it better to use the 1j pistons, or keep the naturally aspirated 2j pistons. What is the difference in the oil jetting and supply lines? Are there any modifications that need to be made to make this functional. Information on this is scarce and I know only a few people on this forum have done this, and are in the process of doing this . I just want to get as much reliable information on the subject as I can, so I dont have to learn it the hard way.

    steve's canada cressida

    Heyo, diggin' the ride, matte black looks awesome on that. Are you gonna go manual trans at any point? What are your side skirts off of? Its good to see bros in cities close. I'm from Saskabush, Saskatchabush.
  5. Wow, thanks bros, this info has been very helpful. I honestly don't think I would have gotten that top starter bolt off unless I did like you said, take off the alternator, and run like 4 extensions with a U-joint adapter along the side of the block under the intake manifold. I guess I could have pulled the engine, but thats not until next month when I up greyed to 1j.
  6. Well, if you all insist, Ill use the r154 starter. Now, if i could just get the top starter bolt off without killing everyone in the neighborhood while they sleep, due to frustration from lack of a 10 jointed arm and wrench swinging space.
  7. S0 r154 starter will work on my stock cressida junk?? Thanks for the fast reply.
  8. Close enough to use???? My starter took a crap on me, have access to a 1jzgte , r154 starter for cheap. Will this work? Also, being on the subject of transmissions, will the a340 work with a 1jzgte? Or no because of bell housing issues? I will eventually be switching to a r154, but want to use the stock cressida tansmission if i can for now.
  9. The exact same thing happened to me about 3 weeks after I bought my x8. Let me guess, you soak it in as much penetrating oil as you want and it still doesn't work? I was mongering about the junkyard and I coincidentally found a fresh lock with the key still in it, lucky me. I'm assuming yours has the same problem mine did, the cylinder jams. You might as well grab an extra latch and cylinder from the scrap yard, try installing the latch first, then I guess your last bet would be to give the lock to a lock smith and have him make you a key for it, should be around 50-60 bucks im guessing.

    mk3 front driveshaft.

    Question: I also bought a mk3 7mgte supra LSD. I was working on my exhaust, and I started measuring mount differences between diffs, while I was at it. Nothing seemed to add up, it didn't even look like it would fit. I'm assuming the guts are transplant-able between diffs, but do both pumpkins bolt up? Also, doesn't the cressida come equipped with a LSD? Why is the mk3 diff superior. My Cressida diff housing said LSD OIL on the back of it, but last winter, i threw my back end into a snowbank, one wheel just sat there and did nothing while the other wheel spun right out. That doesn't sound like limited slip to me.

    WTB JZX81 Engine mounts/brackets

    I need some of these. I need them without the tc.net link. I'm starting my swap asap and just need these or else I will actually have to order them from Toyota.

  13. Someone needs to get into the re-inforced sub-frame business and market it to tc.net!

    Just went and looked at the engine and tranny, spoke with the owner, handed in my t4, waiting for a nice cheque. I should be starting the swap sometime in the next month after I gather all of the parts i'm going to need before hand. I am getting the front half shaft and lsd from a turbo mk3. I'm also getting the pedal assembly and clutch master. The engine is a front sump so I'm set there. I was under the assumption that I could just use the stock cross member but is it necessary to get the jzx81 brackets and mounts or will the 7m ones work? Will the engine fit with the stock 1jz clutch fan? Can anyone think of anything i'm leaving out or anything that I should get to make my life easier? Was wondering what the best idea for running a BOV are? How does the 1j normally vent? I am aware that to use 550cc injectors on a 1j with stock twins requires the use of the 7m low impedance resistor pack. Is there one on the 7m-ge or is that only the gte?. Has anyone made anything from scratch themselves for this application. Or should I just say fuck it cause 550cc injectors for stock twins is overkill anyways? The Driftmotion packs are too pricy for me.
