I know that this has been debated many times. But I noticed that it was always about turboing a N/A engine. If I bought a 98 N/A for my brother, could i just drop in a 2jzgte engine and transmission into it ??
AFAIK, you need more than that to get it to work properly. Like ECU, turbo, mainfold,....etc. Furthermore, you will pay a lot more than a Supra TT in the final cost ( lots of labor too). I was thinking about that when I desperated for MK4 Supra TT.
I know that other things are needed, but the most expensive things are included. My brother got the car for 8 k from a dealer auction. I found a 2jzgte with trans. ecu, manifold, wiring harness for 3500 wit less than 40 k miles on it. Now, i don't think that it would be more then 3 - 4 k for the install, therefore a lot cheaper then current TT's, true or not ?
seems like you have most of what you need at a good deal... there will be a few little things that will crop up because there are other differences but you have the basics for the swap. I believe you'll need a driveshaft as well BTW... And for any performance mods you may want to upgrade the fuel pump. The brakes aren't as nice but easier to do drag tires on the NA rear.
Is the N/A an auto or a manual? If it is an auto, I think that you need to change the transmission tunnel. Not really sure, but you better check up on that. If you really want a TT, then no one can stop you. Take your time and you'll be happy.
My 94TT is BPU+ and I just got a Haltech Elite 2500 to go standalone. Sticking with stock fuel (upgraded injectors though) for now, and would like to drop in a fuel-pressure sensor somewhere. Is there any easy spot to do that ? Maybe the banjo/union bolt on the existing fuel-pressure...
After I have installed all the new seals, BCsprings, retainers, locks and buckets,
with T-belt off, put crank at -10 btdc so all pistons are slightly down, install new BC 272 cams, install cam gears, torque cams as per manual. Then turn CAMS clockwise to tdc notches, and than turn CRANK to tdc...
I am about to repaint my brake calioers. I’m looking for ideas (my car is white).
Post your pics - try and show your car color - and let’s see what’s out there.
I will post after pics when I have some ideas.

Recently acquired a rhd supra and slowly starting the process of swapping things over. Got myself some glass headlights and wanted to swap bulbs while I’m at it. Been told jdm lights differ from usdm. Hard finding more info on this. Thoughts? Trying to find a quality hid system, seems LED isn’t...
