I may have missed it but are you going to be using haltech for this setup too? Haltech seems to be one of the preferred 2jz em methods.


Thank you. I love the new saw. Going to be great for the manifold fab.

Yes Iíll be using the Haltech to run the 2j as well. Great system. Will be running 6 channel egt setup as well!

Here is a quick question, is there a reason you went with the older non vvti vs a newer vvti 2jz?

Looks like the older ones are going for about 1k more because they are getting harder to come by or something maybe? Most of what I am seeing available are the newer vvti's.

Went that route for 2 reasons. Harder to get and I want the most simplicity as possible with this setup.

Ok cool. I thought I had heard the older non vvti motors had stronger internals possibly but I haven't seen anything about it, I think it may have just been someone full of it.

That makes sense, no vvti to mess with and already being cable throttle body should make tuning quite a bit simpler. I also think the matching cam gears looks better than the vvti style.

Been looking into doing a 2JZ swap on a non Subaru chassis, just planning stages. But it's cool checking in here and seeing what you have going on.

Oh yeah I forgot about that new throttle body, what an animal. With the haltech I'm sure the dbw setup is pretty straightforward.

I run DBW using a Haltech 2500 on my C5, very easy to setup. Which Haltech unit are you using?

Did you splurge for the torque management feature? I cheaped out and skipped it but I'm using front and rear wheel speed for traction control.

I heard the torque management feature isn't needed or even really usable for anything but the most extreme setups, 7 sec drag cars and faster basically.

One cool thing about the older non vvti motor you picked up is it's non interference. So if the timing belt breaks you just slap a new one on. That simplicity thing you mentioned before is making a lot more sense to me now. I was going to pick up a vvti but I think I will possibly wait and spend little more for a non vvti now.

Yes the non-interference part is a nice mind easer for sure!

Looks legit!!! Did you have to do any "massaging" of the tunnel to get it to fit?

Fabricators best friend. That's cool.

Thx! Surprisingly the t56 magnum fits fairly well. Only really had to slightly massage for the bellhousing.

Perfect fit. I'm no scientists or fabricator, but do you feel torsionally that's a stout setup?
