My 1JZ swap has been running for a month or so now, but I finally took some pics so here you go:





The car was originally a 7M turbo auto. The auto crapped out for the 3rd time (the other two were before I owned it) and I wasn't going to deal with it anymore, so I ordered a 1JZ 5-speed motorset. Unfortunately it's smoking pretty bad thanks to the turbos so I might just have to go single :D. I did everything including the wiring myself, with the exception of a friend helping haul the motorset, unload it from the truck, and help me guide it into the engine bay. FYI, the 7M long block, fluids drained, without flywheel, was 615 pounds on a pallet when I went to ship it, and the 1JZ with the R-154 was 575 pounds when it arrived. Either my 7M had lead in the pan and the 1JZ was filled with helium, or the 'within 15 lbs' statement is bullshit. I honestly thought they'd be closer in weight but that's what the scale told me.

Here are the mods:

Exhaust:
-Chinaman Y and down pipe
-3" test pipe
-3" HKS Turbo exhaust

Boost/Intake:
-18x12x3.5" core bar and plate IC, designed for FD RX7 but perfect for 1JZ
-2.5" aluminum IC pipes and 3" intake pipe fabbed from eBay IC pipe kit and bends
-3" dual cone filter
-silicone couplers and t-bolts
-Apex'i AVC-R and S-AFC (yet to tune)

Fuel:
-JDM MKIV 440's and MAP

Cooling:
2JZ water pump and thermostat
2JZ hoses
KOYO aluminum radiator
Greddy radiator cap
FAL 220's with Hayden temperature switch

Misc:
-2JZ mounts
-eBay aluminum PS/WP/alt pulleys
-HKS GD Pro twin plate clutch
-Magnum stainless braided clutch line
-Modified stock throttle cable and cruise control for *perfect* fitment

And, the unfortunate looking car (for reference as "before" ;)). I have a procupine to thank for the donut being on the car, and various critters and a no flex agent used on a re-paint of the front bumper to thank for the primer:









And, last but not least, my list of parts that are sitting in the garage begging me to install them:
-Walbro 255 fuel pump
-2JZ cams
-Unorthodox cam gears
-Megan Racing coil-overs (yes, they look very well made)
-Tanabe Sustec sway bars
-4 new Toyota wheel bearings
-MKIV TT rotors, 300zx 30mm aluminum calipers, nightpager brackets, MKIV rear calipers, and Magnum stainless liness
-JDM torsen and 4.10's from a V6 4runner
-New front header panel and Bomex 3-hole
-JDM bubble markers
-New gray side molding
-New dash and door panels, along with some satin black SEM for the brown parts (the tan stays)
-JDM black sunvisors and seatbelts
-Alpine deck, oldschool Soundstream Rubicon amps, Soundstream Exact subs, CDT HD components, and 6.5" speaker brackets
-New targa seals
-New rear hatch glass (existing has no defrost grid thanks to a bad tint job)
-Lexus IS300 chrome wheels (maybe something staggered instead but I already have these)

Other plans:
-Leatherseats.com covers in the front
-Rear seat delete for stereo in the back
-Custom front and rear multi-point strut tower enforcement
-Paint
-New windshield and trim, new hatch glass trim
-New ball joints and bushings wherever needed
-A1 traction arms
-Scissors doors (puts on flame suit)
-Bomex sides and rear

So as you can see, I have a great summer project in the works :D

I don't see anything on that car requiring 440cc injectors.

I guess I should remove them then since room for future expansion is bad. Even the stock turbos are capable of maxing the 370's, and, as my first post states, I don't plan on sticking with the stock turbos for long. Last I checked, too little fuel was a bad thing.
So, if you actually have a point to make, please elaborate as I have nothing against learning. If not, :gives:?

How much did it cost u to go from an auto to manual?
I bought the motor and transmission together, so it's hard to say.

Brown interior :69:
If you like it, I'll trade for another color if you pay shipping, since I'm just going to paint it anyway. The dash and seats are long gone but the rest isn't too bad. Send me a PM if you're interested :)

Why do you gotta be a jackass? Since when are you an authority on the 1JZ? I hope its not because you've done two swaps. :rolleyes: Someone who completely lacks knowledge in basic engine management shouldn't comment on injectors.

The swap looks great Mobes, man that Supra engine bay is tight compared to the SC.

Well how much was it all together??
Depens on what you consider "all together" to be.
The motor was $1950, and I got $300 back for the turbos that are shot. Plus extras, it's right at $5k for what's actually on the car right now. If you're looking for a basic swap price, it should be quite a bit less though.
