ok wtf when did the price of 7ms go up past the 1jzs. I was looking at jdm 7ms no trans vs 1jz no trans but ecu and the 7m was more. like 2-$300 more.

7MGTE Motor alone is usually 1000 or so unless it went up to 1400 or so. But ya, its easier to find a JZ motor because it is in alot of different chassis VS 7MGTE being in 1 chassis. We all knew the pricing wouldn't stay the same, why? Because sooner or later it will be even harder to find a 7MGTE oversea's. Why not just buy a USD 7MGTE and just rebuild it or rebuild the one you have if its fubered.

Is that what you are doing? What are you doing with the 1jz?
Yes I am going 2j. The 1jz will be up for sale as early as Saturday.

Back in 2004 Mike Urbano and I were sitting around talking. I told Mike that I wanted to build a show worthy, magazine worthy car. I asked what he would recommend and the first thing out of his mouth was "2j". Of course there was a lot more that went into that conversation, but I thought that 2jz-gte was a great idea, and I never stopped thinking that. Even when Nick beat me to it, and even now that it's the hottest thing ever, I still want to go "2j".

My previous Supras were daily drivers and my financial situation wasn't all that great. I'm not rich now, but getting better with every month. And now that downtime isn't really an issue... I am going to do it. My goal is to be all swapped and rollin' 2jz by Vegas.

He hasn't even driven the 1J. IIRR, lol
No I haven't driven it. :p Got a good deal on some 2j parts, and I figure why get it running 1j if I can get it running 2j? Down time is down time right?

Damn! That seems a little too affordable. EBay pricing hasn't changed and neither have the major sources (jarco, jhot, venus, driftmotion). Where are u seeing these prices?

i'd like to know too, for that price it's worth it for me to build another 1j supra.

EDIT: ... canadian ebay has some interesting details. Theres a company that ships for free to business addresses don't know is thats to the states also but with some search Im sure theres a hell of a deal out there.
