  1. Its figured out and it runs so fuck it, i couldn't get my UZ swap to start because i had the starter grounded instead of giving it power. Things like that get overlooked when your worried about the million other things that come with a swap.

    Quest for a poor mans 2jz

    So i have my 1.5 jz running and idling\ revving good. (rebuilt 2jzge bottom end,refreshed 1jzvvti head with aftermarket turbo and manifold) but its running to rich and carbon fouling the plugs. I was hoping to make this setup run on stock jzx100 ecu ect.. since i only want high 300's low 400's horsepower wise. but ive talked to a few people and the jzx100 ecu isnt going to allow it under boost/load and that it will lean out and cause problems. So my next step in this quest is that i was going to get a 2jzgte vvti ecu and just use the stock jzx100 harness by matching pinouts and try run that with side feed 440's. has anyone done anything like this? any pro tips? would everything work in unison like TPS etc? Or is this me just trying to take the cheap route like always and i should just get a standalone.

    Yes GE pistons with GTE gasket. I'm not to worried about it i don't plan on running more then a bar of boost. If the time comes for that ill save up an go standalone. I'll make sure and go LINK.

    Kyle enlightened me a bit so i'm probably going to run the jzx100 ecu with bigger injectors and some kind of piggy back to take the edge off. (revs higher and will be just fine) Since i'm a noob to piggy backs ecu's do you guys have any preference when it comes to these? I'm looking at a Greddy Emanage Blue or a Apexi Neo. I like how Emanage has alot of adjustable points and seems super simple as i can just tell it my new injector size and i figures out most of the stuff for me but it might be kind of hard to fine tune since i don't have a dino. On the other hand the apexi is small like a little mp3 player and seems like it might be easier freeway tuning it with my AEM wideband. Decisions decisions...

    Quest for a poor mans 2jz

    Jacob: Exactly my argument, i want to keep stock ecu because i'm not trying to get crazy power just have fun and "reliability". Demesio: I just have open Compressor at the moment, but i have a janky 3in intercooler pipe with a MAF and filter on it. Whoremouth: I wonder if the guy with the na-t vvti 2jz had stock headgasket. hmmmmm maybe all i need is a SAFC. I know people make 400 on stock vvti 2js with only single conversions but vvti 2j's have 440's and map sensors haha thats what i want, at least you have a solid engine and management. I just want to drive this damn thing and stop working on it... im just scared this jzx100 ecu is going to blow my freshly built motor and ill just be out of money. Thinking i should make the vvti 2jzgte ecu work with the stock map sensor and try and replace my top feed 370's with side feed 440's. or just standalone this stupid thing, Link? AEM? gahhhh out of budget, out of time, out of patience. Im blaming everything on the stupid hoonigan sticker on my tool box. Untitled by profilebmx18, on Flickr Untitled by profilebmx18, on Flickr
  11. I'm curious too, yeah its a 1.5 but there was no engine bay pictures in the article.

    they look like they fit pretty good in the back, maybe just a spacer in the front?
  13. The boost port on the front of the compressor housing, it may not be a 90 from the pictures I cant tell.
  14. Whats the thread size for that 90 degree fitting you used on that boost port?
  15. As it says i would like to buy a reverse switch for an r154 mine came with one but the wires are non existent and im having zero luck at the local yards. Hoping to buy with both sides of connector and pig tail. but if not thats fine. help my OCD by allowing me to have everything work.

    WTB: r154/ w58 reverse lights switch.

    Duh, i don't know why i didn't think of ebay or amazon. But yeah BKH808 thanks for your link, but your car looks pretty complete do an intro so we can look at it.

    Put 1jz in is300 and put the 2jz in the cressida since you want it auto anyway.

    1.5jz still on stock ECU? Stoked on your UZ x7 build, if i were going to ever go UZ again it would probably be in a x7.

    Starter woe's again... bedroom editon.

    I thank you, that EWD definitely helped me pin point the last few things.
  20. Alright so cars wired up everything's working for now except the starter isn't getting signal when i turn the key. -Starter has 12v -connected 7&12 from the b3 plug like always and sent it straight to the starter -made a jumper wire and the starter definitely works when i give it 12v to the solenoid. -fuel pump turns on as well as gauges when key is turned. -bypassed theft box (no luck) -checked fuses -dash was recently re-installed all plugs are reconnected and look fine. When the key is turned does the 7 or 12th pin on the b3 plug suppose to send 12v? because as far as i have tested with the muti meter i have gotten nothing. maybe ignition switch died? I'm probably just doomed to start the car via jumper wire for the rest of my life since i'm lazy **Update** -starter relay tested and works fine -theft box 100% grounded via red wire.

    Problem found! Tested the starter relay post no 12V. took apart the fuse box and i had a thick white wire cut that was suppose to supply the 40a AM1 fuse with 12v Dont know how i didn't notice it must have snipped it fucking around getting rid of stuff i didn't need. Gave it 12v, window and door locks work as well as ... starter signal fuck me that was annoying. Titties for everyone. . . . . . . . . . .
