Default 2JZ? No ****?! (Title was too good not to steal)

Sorry to I--RIDE--BIKES , the title was too good not to steal.

I had been wanting to do this since I got the car about a year/year and a half ago, but ended up building the EJ and learning about the platform. Learned a lot and was a good experience in terms of learning. But time to move on back to my original plan...

Hadn't really seen anyone do it in an GR/GV except really for John (white GR hatch) and Lonnie when he was first starting the build on his Nardo gray WRX, but now it's something that will become more popular, I'm guessing, like the GD chassis 2J swaps.

Ended up similar situation of I--RIDE--BIKES (sorry I dont know your name lol) seizing a built EJ (415whp/400tq), then just parting everything I could to recoup a bulk of my money back for the new phase. I suppose some of you probably saw my full part out thread in the classifieds. This is why.

















Too much stuff to list that I want to do to accomplish this, but it's going to my buddy for fabrication to put it all in soon, so I will update as I go.

2jz build #2, cool!

That nardo gray wrx in the TRC YouTube video is pretty wild. If you watch the trees going by when he does those highway WOT pulls, you can tell it's scary fast on lower boost.

The GR body has the advantage of more room for rubber in stock form than the GD body. That will help if your trying to put a decent amount of power to the ground. If your making a burn out machine then it makes no difference .

Looking forward to more, keep us updated!

Is that a T56, T56 magnum? Power goals?

I'm an autox'er (and maybe HPDE track days eventually) so it's still going to be built for more responsiveness for autox than all out mexico highway power. I'll have switchable maps though, with a pot knob for when I want to play around in mexico vs when I track it.

It's actually a CD00A, which is an updated version (better synchros) CD009 from Z33 350Z.

I have a Precison 6266 on the way as well. I'll be running Flex fuel/E85 with ID1000, and dual walbro 450s in Radium dual pump hanger. If I went with bigger injectors this set up is good for about 800whp (lol)

450 for autox/track, and 600 for mexico is my goals.

I already run 285/30/18 RE71Rs, so I'm sticking with that. I think 295s would be too a bit too much rubber for autox, at my driving skill level. I dont even overdrive them at all.

When I seen the bell housing I was wondering if it was the 350z trans.

That 6266 should light up pretty quick on the 2jz, and on 285 re71rs that sounds like a blast.

Look forward to seeing more, keep us updated.

Its resting on the subframe, but clearances look pretty good so far.

It's a BattleAero chassis mount.

How's the quality seem on the vibrant IC? Looks pretty clean.

It looks pretty good so far. Welds are good and peeking inside the end tanks, the fins are pretty densely packed together. I was looking at this or a Treadstone core, but with my account, this came out quite a bit cheaper.

Good to know. I'll give those a closer look when the time comes.

For what it's worth I had a 4" treadstone IC and wasn't as impressed with it as I thought I would be. The welds were kind of sloppy iirc. Not a big deal tho, maybe the guy who made mine had an off day or something.

I have a Treadstone 1200 HP core on my C5 and the welds aren't the prettiest but it definitely doesn't leak and it flows pretty well.

Yeah that basically sums it up for my treadstone: welds weren't the prettiest but no leaks and excellent performance.

Yeah, as long as it doesnt leak and gives you minimal pressure drop, run it!

It kind of hurts being sent a pic of a brand new transmission get its bell-housing cut off, but here's some progress!

I'm letting the fab guys do their thing, and I'll pop by the shop to start on the nuts and bolts/engine/electrical work when the stuff is actually mounted. We may have run into a snag where the tail end of the transmission is hitting the tunnel so we'll have to address that. I'm trying to keep AC, heater, OEM interior etc so it will be an interesting time seeing what they come up with for the tunnel.

First part of engine bay dress-up. OEM TRD Billet Oil Cap to replace my broken stock one. I'm sure a lot of you could appreciate this even though it's just purely for aesthetics.

Looks like plenty of room for your radiator fan setup. Looking good!

That's the hope. Trying to keep my CSF rad and OEM e-fan set up. The stock e-fans are pretty beefy and move a lot of air.

I think we got the clearance figured out, or at least 98% of the way there. Here's a pic of the IC core which clears the chassis mount brackets. Engine is crooked in this pic since it's still just hanging out.

Looking good man, I'm really interested to see how they end up mounting the motor.
