Hey everyone,


Quick intro: I have 455,000 miles on my T100 that I use for work/everyday driving, always loading the bed with heavy loads and occasionally towing 2K lbs. In a nut shell I've finally had enough of the under powered performance and have been contemplating moving into a new truck, unfortunately I can't justify the cost of new trucks these days, especially considering the amount of time and money I have put into the upkeep of the T100 it is like a new truck based on how it drives.

With that said I have decided the best of both worlds is to keep the truck I love and make more power by doing a 2JZ swap. Most of my inspiration for the swap is from my bro, dre99gsx, here on the forums. I'm sure most of you know him from his own Supra work and his latest 2JZ swap into a Z4 :D


Current specs:
97' T100 Extended Cab - 455,000 miles
3.4L V6 w/ TRD supercharger & long tube headers
Automatic
4WD
TRD baja style wheels
Everything else is stock


Brief overview of planned conversion:
2JZ-GTE VVT-I from Aristo (will do AEM ECU, single turbo, etc.)
Full custom exhaust
T100 Automatic trans to T100 Manual trans (R150F with R154 bell housing) swap
OEM ABS system add-on for AEM integrated traction control function





More details and pics to come as I begin! Wish me luck :D

Updates:

Removed the stock setup yesterday and slipped in the block with 5spd/transfer attached.

Tried fitting with rear sump first and no good. Doesn't clear the front diff. Switched to forward sump and seems to clear everything well except for the steering dampener. Will try to lower the dampener with brackets and shouldn't be a problem.

Hey guys,

I haven't had time to post up the write up I want to do with pictures and all but will have it up shortly.

Long story short... I've been running the setup since mid march 2017... have put 10K miles to date and it runs flawlessly. Sometimes I forget that there is a 2J under the hood during daily driving, so smooth with no hiccups.

Started with a 51mm borg warner turbo but quickly realized it was running out of its efficiency range in higher RPMs, intake air temps were climbing very high... swapped out to a 60mm borg warner and it's perfect. Put down 440 whp at 17 psi on a dynojet.

I've been hauling mixed loads in the bed.. most I've done and ever do is 2,000 lbs... it was effortless. Have not towed yet though.


The T100 is completely stock except for this swap. Only customization needed was:
Motor mounts
Cut radiator support and custom mount radiator, AC condenser
AC lines
Re-locate battery to passenger fender
Electrical, AEM integration etc
Coolant plumbing
Power steering plumbing & addition of cooler
Steering dampener bracket added on frame to lower dampener so it doesn't hit oil pan
R154 bell housing to mate 2JZ to R150F.. R154 clutch, flywheel and slave cylinder
I used my original automatic transmission cross member and it positioned the motor in the engine bay perfectly. If you use the manual trans cross member it's going to push the motor too far forward, keep that in mind.

That's it in a nutshell. I'll have more specific details on the whole build once I complete the write up. Stay tuned!
