1JZ VVTi HELP!!

Recommended Posts

so i need an exhaust cam seal,

 

I read a few places that a Crank Seal from a 2003 Highlander/Camry works, so i ordered one. I inspected it and it look identical to the one i removed so i installed it.

Started the motor up for the fist time yesterday and it was leaking ALOT, so i removed the top cover today and cranked it & saw the seal is rotating with the camshaft.

a bunch of people said they used it and it works, but i figured i would ask you guys. Im sure a handful of you are running this motor and replaced these in the past..

I need Exhaust cam seal, ive read that 2003 Camry/Highlander Crank seal (front) is the same.

 

Are VVTi and Non VVti 1JZ Cam Seal (Exhaust) the same?

I heard that the cam seals are different between VVTi and Non VVTi 1j so im guessing it doesnt work. same reason i didnt try a 2jzgte cam seal for my 1j.

u might want to try asking brian, about where to get to get those parts or what alternatives u can try or use the find a cam seal with part number almost matching the one from the link i provided.

yea, this is the p/n i need OEM 90311-38056, it is not a good number for toyota/lexus in the USA, and we thought we had the right seal, installed it, and it was a cunt hair too small, so we no longer have the original seal..

 

i took measurments and the OD of the seal needs to be 52.5mm, ID (camshaft thickness) 38mm, and seal depth/thickness 6mm-7mm will work

I tried them, no good...

 

 

I ended up ordering a bunch from Jland so i have them on hand, and reinstalled the original one for the time being.

Did an event this past weekend at monticello motor club in NY and no signs of a leak.

 

here is a shot of my engine bay in case anyone cares

Boost leak? One of my couplers looked liked that and the thing would blow off like every 2 days and i replaced the clamp every time it blew off i ended up remaking that pipe so the coupler sat better problem solved. You still on stock boost?

Na, no boost leak. This pipe is completely even with outlet pipe, the coupler is like 2"'s to long. I trimmed the bottom to fit around the bend, just havent trimmed the top. I actually have to remove the intrcooler to take that pipe out. I am running 14lbs.
