IHere's my POS. Previously owned/parted out by Clint G. When I heard he was parting it out, I couldn't help but think about what happened to his old gray car RIP and I couldn't let that happen to this one so I decided to buy the shell and save it from a sure death. I picked up a 1JZ August of 2012 with the intention of putting it in my white 87 but plans changed and the motor has been sitting ever since. Now I am just trying to piece together the swap and get this thing back on the road.
Enjoy! :bigok:

Looking good. This is clints old car correct? Ill be following this build. Hope it cools down for you.
May be out for SIV next year. You guys seem to know how to build them right down there.

Radiator Came in!

Got the motor on the stand

Albert came over and we tore it down to inspect the bearings and paint the block. The rod bearings looked amazing! Super happy about that

During the cleaning of the block we discovered a little problem :unsure:/>


I decided to paint a few other things and mock it up. Looks so tits

Cleaned up the upper pan.... took fooorrrrrevvvverrrrrr.

Took all the Sh*t back off, popped out the freeze plugs and replaced them

I'm very please with the progress and that fact Jeff stepped up to take on such a project. I miss my old car everyday but I'll still be able to see it.

Took the casings off the R154, cleaned and painted them. Took forever! Everybody that drove by looked at me like what the hell is this guy doing.

Bell housing came in so I painted it and slapped it on

Found a flywheel on Craigslist for a decent price, got ARP flywheel bolts put it on and mounted the trans

After all the work making the twins look good, Albert talked me into going single. After trading a few parts he gave me this.

Borg Warner s256, AGP 4960 Anti-surge housing 4" inlet 2" outlet, Master Power .68 A/R Exhaust housing. :wackit:

Ordered a few goodies from DM. After waiting for what seemed like forever they finally came in!
