Default 2JZ No *****!


Iíve been wildly busy working away on this thing to get it on the road. Which is why I havenít updated in a while.

Since the last post I built my exhaust, which is a full 4Ē oval system with single straight through muffler. Also built my wasetegate dump tube setup to come up through my turbo manifold and out of the hood. Both turned out exactly how I imagined!

Then I made my catch can/rad overflow combo. Also turned out nicely. Internally baffled and draws vacuum from intake.

Then we powder coated my intake manifold in a wild honeycomb pattern!

Finally it was time modify the Haltech harness and to run the harness in the car. Naturally there was some trouble shooting along the way. Got it done tho!

Then came the glorious first start. 1 year and 2 days after my EJ exploded, the 2jz came to life.

Now Iím just starting to break in the drive train with easy driving around town. Low load and under 4500rpm. Good lord does it sound wild though!!!! Itís going to be an absolute beast once tuned. The idle is mean and while driving the exhaust note is very smooth. Likely from the manifold design.

Things Iíve noticed while driving so far...
-doesnít feel any different in the steering than before
-the triple disc clutch is incredibly streetable. Amazed really
-the t56 magnum gearing with the 4.30 rear gears is spot on.
-and the 2jz just feels like it wants to go!!!! WOT is going to be right naughty

Just waiting on my BTI dash to arrive in about a week and then thatís basically it for parts.

I do have a vibration at 120km/h but Iíll be diagnosing that tonight.

Also won a few awards at the Driven show which was very cool!

If all goes well the tune will be later in August.
