I usually don't make build threads before the build is finished, but I figured what the hell. I'm bored.
1989 Toyota Supra 5-speed N/A. I bought it in December of '07 from the original owner since December of '88. Everything was original. 100% rust free. Car spent it's whole life in Mississippi.
I was going to build up the 7M until I came across a 2JZ-GE for $250. I just couldn't pass it up.
2JZ-GE from a 1994 Lexus SC300
SAFC II in conjunction with an AEM wideband
OEM 2JZ-GTE Headgasket with ARP studs
The 2JZGE will be ran off of 7M-GTE sensors, ECU, and wiring harness. IS300 coil packs will be used for ignition.
The block just came back from the machine shop getting the cylinder walls honed and the deck resurfaced. New rings and bearings are on order from Toyota.
The original 7MGE
The intercooler that will be going in:
My $250 2JZ-GE
Took the head apart, did some porting and polishing. Installed the oil pan and waterpump.
Buckets, shims, and cams are in.
Oil return line:
Alright, so because the 2JZGE has an intake manifold that goes over the engine, I had a problem with the throttle body hitting the hot-side of the turbo The intercooler piping to the throttle body will not clear. So I just purchased a Ford 4.6L throttle body from a Crown Victoria from eBay for $25.
Going to have to cut and weld a new flange to the Y-Pipe.
Don't worry, the hole will be cleaned up.
Just ordered the alternator and Walbro fuel pump last night. Throttle body is getting finished up.
So far this budget build is just under $1,800
