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...
Can anybody help me.
I've a 5MGE engine built in a CamperVan (see www.commerclub.nl) and I've just swapped last week the gearbox, because it had synchro-problems.
I've been running it since 1993 up to 2017 and than I changed the engine with the same one.
This engine can also run on Liquid Gas...
Just to help clarify the whole P-type and L-type for everybody. Just to let you all know I'm new to this forum! I have had my mk2 for a year now. I have been researching it forever. So here goes all the quick info on it(mk2):
82-84 the L-type came with 14x5.5 rims that were used on the...
Hi! I just recently purchased an 87 supra, after replacing the head gasket myself on the 7mgte I now am looking for some aftermarket parts that wont run me up the ass. Would love pics of any of your mods cause I am super interested!
Looking for headlights/taillights, trim and any cool little...
Does anyone have knowledge of a recent issue that is occurring more frequent on my '87 Supra. When driving and making a sudden movement, hard braking or even using the turn signal, several warning lights appear. It's mostly the brake light, battery light and sometimes a bulb light. I'm...
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:
