Oh yeah, I remember that! Good to hear everything went well and you're doing so much fun shit to your supra!

Yeah, he lived about two blocks from where you picked up the sensor, if you remember where that was so far back :p

Car is here!




I guess it is as i expected. the damage is pretty bad, but all the important components look fine. He did give me 2 new k&N oil filters, which is cool. I attempted to start the engine, but the battery was so dead it started making noises, which i didnt like, so i am going to mess with that tomorrow in the day light.

IT has been going great so far:) I tore off all the bad body pannels off of "the beast" I also ran the engine :) My first time behind the wheel of a 1jz!!! it was cool even though i didnt go over 25 mph :) It has no plates and half of the front end is missing, soi really cant drive fast, also no hood :) I took everything off today:) It was a great day! Tomorrow my best bud is dropping off the cherry picker and hopefully we will work all night and make some headway. If anyone in the area wants to help, just buzz me :)

Cool idea. I've talked to Chris at some of the auto-x events (red mkiv TT, apparently he had a NA/T a while back). I've got a silver hardtop but try to visit for auto-x and track events. How's the build coming along?

And Ian....I had no idea we had a 1JZ taco in Moscow!

Sweet! Umm, tomorrow my best bud and me are going to start dismantling and then Justin, from SF, is going to help me most of the evening. Maybe i will get the engine out by the end of tomorrow. Justin can help Sunday and Monday nights. My best friend is very very married and his wife really doesn't let him go out and play much. It kinda sucks, because this was our dream to do this swap for the last like 5 years. I am only sorta bitter. Well yeah, it is coming along:) If there is any other cool supra guys around that want to help with a 1jz, just buzz me.

Fun morning of boostin!

Well, today i finally got started. WOw, we started by driving the car for a few minutes. There is no fan on her right now, so i cant relaly drive her for more then a few minutes, but yeah. We boosted her! WOW!!! damn!!! I couldn't believe it! I have never driven a turbo car before and wow. the bov just screamed and the car just flew! It was seriously fun! :)

Then we started taking her apart.

Next i am going to remove the radiator and make some room for the engine to come out.

here is a current pic.

Good day of swappin! :)
We got the engine unbolted and on the cherry picker :) Now we just have to deal with wires


THis is the so called "tuck" . They basicly didnt extend the wires to the ecu area and left them behind the dash. Man, there were so many things done half ass backwards on the swap so far. I am not very impressed by the company in arizona that did it.



Blitz ecu :) Cool to look at :)


Oh, and a last mention. I met Justin's supra yesterday and OMG!!!! DAMN!!!! Fucken hot as hell!!!! Sex on wheels! Oh man and the interior at night, unbelievable. It was one of the sexxxxyist dashes i have ever seen on a supra at night. So bright and beautiful! :)

Well, after like 4 months of work, we got the wiring done! Here are pix from the adventure!


The work area


the mess, all 80 wires!


Justin working hard.


the finished product!

Well, there are only 6 more shielded wires to do, all others have been properly extended! :)
it only took us about 5.5 hours to do them. Justin is awesome with a soldering iron :)
