    2jz swap into mk3 supra

    I want to swap a 2jz into a mk3 supra but the engine im looking to getting is a 2jz-ge. So i was wondering like if i could use that block rebuild it and put on a Gte head on it. Would it be classified as a 2JZGTE?

    there basically the same block. minus the oil passage and some minor things here and there. you can use the search button, top right, to help you more on your project.

    There's a whole section dedicated to JZ swaps into MK3's:

    And no it wouldn't be a 2JZ-GTE. You would have a 2JZ-GTE head on a 2JZ-GE block. That is a capable formula, though the GTE block is usually preferred since it has piston oil squirters and OEM pistons of the appropriate dish to get a turbo-friendly compression ratio. If you're going to build the 2JZ-GE block, consider adding those oil squirters, as the recesses are there in the 2JZ-GE block casting, they just need to be drilled & tapped.

    Also, you should move this thread to the MKIII section.

    I'd consider it a 2jz-gte but unless you go all out APU standalone and delete everything oem from the head besides the cam sensors putting a gte head on a ge block doesn't make sense finanically.
