IIRC there weren't any cars shipped to the US that used the 1JZ-GTE, so getting parts would be non-trivial.cableguy529 said:Let me know how it all goes together. I am interested in doing a transplant in my 85' , and the 1jz seems like it would be quite a bit better to start with than a 7mgte.
you're welcome spanky!cableguy529 said:I found a 7mgte with tranny,ecu, and wiring harness today for 600 bucks........ >8o)
its not a JDM motor, but who cares..... 600 bucks is friggin cheap
Not unless you are buddies with the smog guy. Or you can pay the smog guy off (typically anywhere from $300 to $1000+ and highly illegal). Any engine that is newer than the transplant car and was a legal CA emissions certified engine is fair game. So since the 1JZ never even made it to the US let alone CA, it ain't legal. 2JZ would be legal along with the 7MGTE and 7MGE.Ill take the above post a step further. Will the 1JZ pass all of California's smog inspections? [/B]
The 2JZ-GTE is the engine in the Supra TT...altimasupra said:hey norbie,
