If its a MkIII (86.5-92) its supposed to be a relatively easy bolt up. Supposedly if you use the later style MkIII engine mounts the engine mounts up. You'll need a 2JZ trannsmission for the engine as the bolt pattern is different than the M series blocks. Mk II's are a different story. engine and transmission mounts need to be fabbed. The US MkIV oil pan sump is in the wrong spot. The tranny tunnel is supposed to be on the small side for the 6spd. You'd probably want to use a MKIV NA tranny bellhousing for the W58. Both of these conversions would require all the IC pipe to be fabbed, not to mention the wiring . In other words its a big project. The 7mGTE is a much easier swap in either model, + it's proven. The 2JZ has been installed in a few MkII & III, almost all are urban lore.
BTW for nice 2JZ swap into a MkIII check this link
Mine is a Mk2. This is the Mk2 Supra forum, so it probably isn't the best place to be asking about Mk3's! In any case, if you want to put a 2JZ in a Mk3 you should check out this site: http://www.supras.nl/
The owner of that site, Arnout van der Kamp, is in the process of putting a 2JZ-GTE into his Mk3 Supra. Most of his progress so far has been documented on the web site.
Yeah, I know about yours, but does it run? I'm refering to the ones in the US. There's probably about a half dozen running 2JZ MKII's from what I've heard running about (plus a few Celicas). True or not, good question?
Getting it running isn't the problem - all it needs is a battery and fuel pressure and it will start up. The problem at the moment is mounting the engine to the crossmember so I can actually drive the car...
Hello MK II Supra owners. I just lost my keys and am wondering if anyone can help or direct as to how I can get a copy. It was the only one I had. I went to the Toyota dealer and I was told that they no longer make keys for older toyotas (1990 and older). Can anyone out there please help me out...
Just trying to get a feel for how many MKII guys are actually here. Just post your name, where you're from, your car and what motor you have:cool:
1983 P-type with 7MGTE...not running (yet)
Hi Guys. My girlfriends 91 Cressida just died. The head gasket finally blew after all these years of being re-torqued. The heads dead (over heated twisted and ate the cams) and the block has the dreaded deteriorated upper deck. Were scrapping it. I have repaired alot of cars in my time but I am...
