    LS1UZ project

    I'm starting a 1uz build using a GM 24x pcm tuned with hptuners . This car is going to be a hot rod not a slide car and I hope to use a a30-40le auto if the GM pcm can shift it . I have the majority of the parts already and will be starting to piece it together this week . I have a 24x reluctor and crank sensor from a l21 454 , a ls2 cam sensor , a 2000 ls1 pcm and all the necessary GM sensors . My goal is to make the 1uz more tunable as a swap alternative for trucks and cars . I do not need any help achieving this but would appreciate any support or insight on this setup .

    I saw these on eBay the other day and wanted to share with you all . http://www.ebay.com/...ssories&vxp=mtr They use a 60-1 wheel and a steel turbine wheel , the other ct15b turbos I have seen all had stock compressor wheels. I had a 7m-gte back in the day (early 1990's) with a 60-1 wheeled ct26 and was able to make 400+ whp in a mkIII .

    This has really got off topic and mean-spirited , I hope this thread holds it together until I post up some results . When I started this thread I clearly stated I had most of the parts to pull this off , I don't need any help achieving this goal but I would appreciate any support or insight on this setup . So I don't care about your opinions or suggestions on what's better , cheaper , easier or is a better option unless it is insightful to or supports this project . My mind was made up before I posted anything up about this topic or started this project .

    Wow that's a good tip thanks Gordo ! I already bought the kit but I will talk to him later today and maybe the kit will become plan B . Thanks again , I can't believe we had not thought of this .

    The reluctor is to small to chuck up in my buddy's lathe so we are going to mod a sherline jewelers lathe with a kit to increase the swing over the bed . I thought of using the 2uz but I want an aluminum block in my car . If the 2uz heads don't work on the 1uz short block I will probably put some Chinese h-beam rods in it and put it in a truck . I will poste up some pictures of the 1uz with 2uz heads when I get some time to bolt it together .

    jzx100 - 1JZGTE VVTi wiring bare minimum

    Yes you should need STA so the ECU has voltage while you are cranking the starter . NSW neutral start switch is only needed if your car is auto or the ECU is auto than you would need to wire STA and NSW to the start signal . Connecting the STA NSW pins together fools the ECU to think it is in park or neutral .

    I'm still wasting on the crank reluctor should be any day . I picked up the 2uzfe for a hundred bucks it came with a uncut 2wd harness , coils , injectors , intake , throttle, both oil pans , flex plate , exhaust manifolds and everything except the power steering , a/c compressor and alternator . I have been working on the wiring harness using the coils and connectors from the 2uz on the ls1uz I will post up some pictures when I get further along .

    My buddy that is doing the machine work on the crank reluctor says he will have it for me this weekend . Also I'm picking up a 2uzfe engine friday so I can design a cam reluctor and bolt the 2uzfe top end on a 1uzfe bottom end and see if it will turn without any collision . I'm going to start the wiring harness this weekend and try the 2uzfe coils with the GM pcm .

    steering wheel off center after turning.

    I put some eBay urethane bushings on a customers car they worked good , only took a few minutes to install and they were only like 40 bucks shipped . I'm planning to build a tubular cross member with a IS300 or GS300 steering rack and tension rods like a 240 for my car .

    Can we talk about bash bars?

    This is bad ass , I got to build one of these for my mark II bumper .

    The signal gets corrupt when they use double row timing gears and the sensor is misaligned with the reluctor so they use the lt1 sensor and the fat single row reluctor to correct it .

    jzz30 vs jzx90 ecu

    The x90 has a 16 bit processor , to me they sound different and I have not had to put caps in one yet although they are newer . I have not seen any difference in rev limit .

    Have you tried mixing in some toluene in you shit gas ?

    I'm not 100% but I believe to use a fat single row reluctor you would run a crank angle sensor from a lt1 . I went this route because I know it will work and I can get to fit under the stock plastic covers on any non vvt-i uz motor or combination of non vvt-i block and non vvt-i heads .I have been thinking of 2uz top end on a 1uz long block . I like the forward facing manifold , the shim under bucket heads with logic based coils and the level intake ports for mounting the TRD blower or ITB's .

    This is the exact same Chevy crank reluctor and crank angle sensor they use on a L21 454 and it is the one you would use to convert a 454 to lsx pcm . I'm confident it will work for me the same way it works for the 454 . Pictured hear is the crank angle sensor and reluctor I am using , the reluctor mounted on an old 454 and the L21 454 vortec that I sourced the parts from .

    Also I understand that I need to wire the coils for the 1uz's firing order like when you wire a ls1 pcm for an old small block .

    Thanks for all your replies 4U2QUIK . I am machining the Lexus crank reluctor and the Chevy crank reluctor from a L21 454 to fit together like a miniature adjustable cam gear so I can rotate the Chevy crank reluctor 360 degrees to accommodate the fixed location I will be placing the crank angle sensor from the same L21 454 . Once I have it working my plans are to have a fat one piece single row 24x reluctor either water jet or CNC plasma cut to fit the 1uz crank . I hope to see the parts soon , I will post up pictures as soon as I get it together .

    Hi 4U2QUIK your LS setup is one of the inspirations for my setup , I emailed daft innovations about this setup to inquire about purchasing one of your 1x reluctor and cam position sensor . Also thanks for the constructive criticism, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but like they say there is more than one way to skin a cat . I would rather try a new configuration or buy one of yours than copy the one you labored to design and build . Also I'm building the 1x reluctor on the back side of the right pulley so I can use the same setup on first gen 2uzfe head as well . If you have any of these parts for sale please let me know . Thanks in advance !

    I'm using the right side cam sensor bracket modified to except a ls2 cam position sensor and a custom 1x reluctor timed for the 1uz and welded to the back of the right side cam pulley because there is more room behind the right side pulley than the left . As for the ls1pcm it has no idea it is on a 1uz and will run fine as long as it sees the GM sensors it is programmed for . I'm confident that the engine will work right out the box it's the auto transmission that is most challenging , but it's not a deal breaker as I will use a R or W series 5speed if I can't make it work . I'm expecting the crank reluctor back from the machine shop next week and I will be modifying a 1uz oil pump to except a Chevy l21 454 big block crank angle sensor . I will post pictures of these parts as soon as I can and hopefully get this project back in high gear again . Once again I apologize for the delay my buddy's dad is doing the machine work and he is retired and works at a slower pace than I do .

    This is the cam sensor I built to test , I will be building another one as well in case this one don't work out . The 1x cam relucktor will be welded to the back of the right pulley . Sorry for the delay I'm waiting for my buddy to get the machine work on the crankshaft relucktor done as soon as I get it back I will post up more pictures .

    I have done the special sauce true twins mod on suprafourms but none of any of this is actually true twins on a 2jz-gte only the front turbo has a waste gate and the rear turbo has a spool up valve . The only way to make the 2jz-gte true twin or bi turbo is to mod a front turbo and mount it on the rear manifold or fit the rear turbo with a customized front exhaust housing .

    The last a30-40le I did had a 3400 stall behind a 400+ hp 1jz still holdin up good the owner commutes 30 miles a day down hear in the Florida heat . If the GM pcm can't get it done I will just run a r154 or a r150 , but I will study the megasquirt GPIO trans controller and even consider using a GM transmission .

    I like the a30-40le , I have modded a lot of them and they will hold 400+ whp with a torque converter , some valvebody mods and a pair of valvebody gaskets . Also I can mod the earlier valvebody with the throttle cable line pressure or the newer valvebody with the PWM line pressure solenoid like the Chevy has to dial out line pressure if the valvebody mods are to aggressive .
