    WTB: mx83 diff cover & fan shroud

    got a diff cover, actually just pulled a whole sub-frame and the local junkers... no fan shroud though so still looking for that.
  2. Kaaz LSD in Canada, not too bad of a price: https://www.ebay.com/itm/JDM-Toyota-Altezza-SXE10-Lexus-IS300-KAAZ-LSD-Rear-Differential-2001-2005/132606300909?epid=27024478222&hash=item1edff392ed:g:Xa4AAOSwns1a6MVQ:rk:33:pf:0

    Torsen diffs

    Ended up buying a frs Diff for $180 gonna pull the T2 lsd and swap it into a mk3 housing I have. Ill weld up the open diff off the Cressida to drop back into the frs case and sell it back to the frs guys and profit off the purchase. Feels good to get parts for profit. Still have a mk3 clutch diff Ill modify and keep if I decide I want to do some skids.

    Toyota truck SPOOL into X8 differential.

    Sorry to Lazarus this thread but I noticed that the OP didn't say if he had the 4 cyl or v6 version of the toyota 8" spool, apparently the V6 one is the one that can take the supra lsd so it would stand to reason that the V6 spool would be the one you would need for our diff, could it be you had the 4cyl version and may be why the bearings didn't fit? They are indeed pretty cheap: https://www.durasolid.com/product/spool-8-toyota-v6-30-splines/
  8. Gordo, aren't you running like a 5.29 in the rear? I would assume you're running a t56 for the tall first gear? Its only a 5mph difference topped out in 1st between the AR5 and R154. I liked the closer ratios on the AR5, meh. Could run the factory 3.9 gear ratio and still have a faster 60ft time than a 4.3 R154. I have a 4.3 supra diff though and a low power na 2jz, I think that'll be more fun. I'll keep the 3.9 if I turbo it down the line.

    2nd in line, mine is cracked to shit
  10. I decided on the AR5 trans. Supposedly they are roughly the same design as the R154 but with better synchros. I verified that all the aftermarket R154 internals can be used in it. ie shift forks & thrust washer. Found one off a polaris slingshot (didn't have to modify shifter like I would've from a solstice) that only had 100 miles on it, got it for $700. Bought a 2jz r154 bellhousing and bolted it right on. I'm using the solstice concentric slave cylinder with landcrusier master, 2JZ W58 flywheel and pressure plate with S10 clutch plate that I had the friction material swapped out on. I'm going to run a 4.30 rear end but might go 4.10 if it seems too short. R154 ratios: 1 2 3 4 5 R 3.25 1.96 1.31 1.00 0.75 4.22? AR5 ratios: 1 2 3 4 5 R 3.75 2.26 1.51 1.00 0.73 3.67

    mx83 2jz swap wiring

    I've been reading your thread Boris, saw you re-did your harness but didn't see anywhere you mentioned what pin terminals you used. The build is looking awesome though, don't get too distracted by the rolla, I wanna see the cress finished

    mx83 2jz swap wiring

    Yeah that's where I want to mount the ecu, thinking the bulk of the wire harness might be the issue especially if I keep the IK1 and IK2 plugs (LHD gs300 harness). I was asking about the pins to try to minimize splicing and soldering so I can just crimp the pin terminals and be done with it. I'll probably just order 50 or so of them since they're pretty cheap.

    I think I found the pin terminals if anyone could verify: https://www.te.com/usa-en/product-175197-2.html

    mx83 2jz swap wiring

    So I got the engine and transmission bolted in (the easy part). Ended up making some engine mount brackets that closely resemble the XM ones so I could put the shifter where I want. That worked out nicely other than trying to use the factory trans mount and crossmember on the AR5. Only 2 of the 4 bolts are in on the mount and 2 of the 4 are in on the cross member, so I'm going to do some measuring and fab up a new crossmember and trans mount utilizing an Energy poly gm trans mount. I took the upper intake manifold and the engine wiring harness off so I could do all the wiring on a bench and test all the important wires. Going to try to make it plug and play using part of the 7m ecu header, not sure if I'll be able to keep the 2jz ecu in the stock location above the glove box or will have to sacrifice the glovebox for the space. Would love to see if any of you have been able to keep the glovebox with the 2jz ecu and how you accomplished that. Anyone know what part number for the ecu pin terminals used in the non vvti 2jzge harness on TE or Mouser?

    Sleeper MX83 build

    I've got some Cadillac ATS brembo calipers, there the ones the FRS guys are running with STi rotors, I can measure dimensions for whatever you need from them. From looking at a bunch of rotor specs I think the rotors that will possibly fit the best on a mx83 are from 2009-14 Hyundai Genesis 3.8, 330mm x 30mm same bolt pattern bigger hub hole so a centering ring can be fitted. Only thing I need to figure out is if the ID of the rotor hat will fit over our hubs, it looks like it might be close.
