BkCressida's X8 2jzge na-t w/TT Electronics (first ever??????????????)

Recommended Posts

Not sure if I was the first one to successfully do this in a Cressida but oh well not really too concerned with that. Bought the car in 2011 with a bhg with the intentions of going 1jz vvti but all the motors in the area were greasy messes and missing stuff or too expensive. 2jzge can be had all day for <$500 all day so I said why not. I refused to go the familiar route of using the ge ecu because its either you stack piggybacks or go standalone after a while until I stumbled upon this setup on the clublexus forums. Spent the next couple of years gathering info on the setup and parts. Heres the info on the car:



2jzge engine with stock hg and harness out of a 1st Gen gs300 with brand new valve cover gaskets, seals, brand new clutch fan (from a ls400), with the EGR removed.
Brand new radiator
SS power steering line
XM 91-92 engine brackets

Turbo setup

T67 turbo kit for a 2jzgte from driftmotion.com which includes:
3in downpipe, 40mm 4 bolt wastegate (11psi spring)
2jzge Ebay turbo exhaust manifold
-10an oil drain
-3 oil feed with -4 adapter
Coilpacks and Ignitor from a 2000 Lexus gs300
1jz/2jz Map sensor
440 injectors and resistor pack from a Mk3 Turbo Toyota Supra
2jzgte Auto Ecu and IAT
AEM wideband and HKS Boost gauge

EGR blockoff plates

Spearco Replica Intercooler and custom piping


W58 (non-turbo) transmission out of a '89 Supra along with driveshaft, pedals, and slave and master cylinders
2jz bellhousing and flywheel
ARP flywheel and pressure plate bolts
XTD 6 puck clutch disc and pressure plate
SS clutch line


JIC front coilovers from a JZX81 (Toyota Chaser)
S13 swaybar links
New Driver side RLCA and axle
S13 Cusco Rear coilovers



Grey Cloth Interior
JDM Mk4 Supra 3-spoke steering wheel
Gauge Installation kit to replace clock



When I first purchased it



After installing the suspension purchased by DiscoShit



Getting the wiring done by my boy JDMCRESS



Waiting to do the IC installation



Cockpit Shot



After IC and piping Installed



After getting the exhaust installed



Car runs and idles as stock and pulls hard. This was done as a budget build so I'll probably leave it as it is for while but we all know how that power bug bites so we'll see, Next on agenda is definitely getting new wheels These were only put on to tow the car back and forth and ended up staying on so don't be too harsh lol. Those interested in the swap, I can and will answer what ever questions that may be asked.

Looks good !

But would look better if you painted the rusty horns, cam gears, and bolts on the front end.


And a supra steering wheel ?


Oh well, to each their own..........


Good work.

its been running for a while just not on the road and the piping wasn't completed. lol gordo the horns and stuff are getting swapped out. the car been sitting for almost two years bro. and whoremouth, I was referring to the tt setup. the issue I have with using the 7mgte electronics, its like buying a modern laptop/computer and running windows 95 on it. 7mgtes use mafs, most harnesses and plugs are brittle, sensors need changing, etc.

Those wheels wouldn't be so bad if you could just run a lower profile/narrower width tire,get some wheels spacer's,loose the mudflap's,and lower the suspension a little bit more.

Congrats on finishing the swap.Look's clean and mean.Fuck worrying about wheel's and shit anyways,because looks like the power bug will hit hard haha.Take any money you have and just keep putting it under the hood.
