i plan to do a 1j swap into my mk3 supra (n/a, hks exhaust, AND NOTHING ELSE!!) but i dont know much about an engine swap so i'm looking for guys (and girls) in the bay area who want to help me out with the 1jz swap. i probably wont be doing it anytime soon but i just want to know if anyone can help me out later in the future. i'm doing this cuz i want to learn more about supras and cars in general (but mostly about supras hahah) and anyone know where i can find a good halfcut of a 1jz? i'm looking at jarco or driftmotion but they are pretty pricey. i found a 1jz at flashoptions for 1700 but i dont know if they are good or not so i need help hahah

well ill tell u what i did, all the mechanical shit myself, and had a member here help with body wiring. Basically i spent 2 months, (like 80 hrs) on the swap, and had an experienced member do body wiring for me. Its the best way to go IMHO.

Thats the whole thing i dont have the time or space or proper tools to do a swap at my house. i'd rather have professionals do it than my dumbass, i wouldnt want to fuck up what could be a very beautiful and powerful thing.
