hey guys..sorry if this is a dumb question but can i fit a 2JZGTTE engine from like a 93+(mkiv) supra into my 87 supra? or am i limitied to the 7mgte?

also, i've seen many twin turbo supra motors with an auto trans going for about $2000, does that seem kind of cheap or is that reasonable?

thanks

they fit, but i heard that if u want to keep the stock twins u have to cut some parts of the firewall.. maybe not. i wouldnt keep that stock auto tranny either, stick with the mkiii R154 5speed, itll mate to a 2jz using the 1jz bellhousing

Yes it fits and yes you have to do some modifications to make it work.

$2000 for a 2jz-gte isn't unheard of but it is cheap, auto's usually do drop the price from a comparable manual tranny.

Sounds like you have a lot of research to do, considering that we have an entire section dedicated to the 1JZ/2JZ MKIIIs.

Edit: and yes you have to modify the firewall to make it work. I heard that a good pounding will do without needing to cut, but read the 2JZ section and look for swap threads. There have been a lot of buildup pics that people are just finishing from the winter going up.

It should work, i've seen quite a few people with that.

If you need someone to ask more questions try SupraNikolai, or atleast i think thats his screen name. He's already done that swap

Thats my 2jz swap, a few of us on here have done it. Off the top of my head SupraNikolai, 2jzMKIII, got boost, and a few others.

Good Luck

dear sir, your mk3 is sex. not to mention the 164 in the back round. i'm personally a gtv6 guy though.

very nice mk3!! i'd like to see a build thread on this one.

one more question..for those of you who have swapped out your motors..where did you get them from?
has anyone heard of tigerjapanese.com..

No limitations to the 7M > 814 RWHP & climbing here. Both engines are great and both cost money to make power.

yeah i dont know if i just want to mod up my 7mge or just swap it out..im kind of on the fence right now..it seems like putting power into a n/a engine just eats up so much more money..money that i dont really want to spend if i dont have to..lol

I picked up my 2JZ TT with an auto on it for $1800 CDN. The 1JZ bellhousing and flywheel are starting to get a little harder to find though, and if you're thinking about doing a swap like this, get on it before all the parts you need are no longer available.
