Default 2JZ No *****!

Update!

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.

That oval 4Ē is amazing!!! Any photos of it on from behind and under the car? That intake manifold powder is top notch! And the ewg out the hood should be pretty wild at wot too

Steering feels good, your good to go!

Hand built, nothing feels better. You know the ins and outs of the whole setup. Congrats man, awesome job and quality work.

Thx! That coil is for the Exhaust Manifold pressure sensor. Helps dissipate heat prior to the sensor.

Cool, I’m thinking about the vibrant Hd clamps which are similar to the alpha locs. One less failure point, because who likes tracking down boost leaks from couplers, right?

I bet that was a nice taste of what’s to come. The sounds from the 2jz paired with that header and 4” must be magnificent.

I was going to use those vibrant clamps until I heard of issues on a local car that used them. I ended up just welding V-bands on and calling it good.

We need video's!!! lol

Update:

Cars been running very well. Have just been doing some Etuning with Jimmy at Vex and have it to 15 psi and going to leave it there until spring. Winter is near and I just want to drive and enjoy it.

That being said, the car feels incredibly strong and pulls quite hard. Itís going to be wild when we get it up to 30+ psi. Sounds nuts too. I post videos and pics on IG all the time. Follow there to see them. Or follow our YouTube for videos too. Iíll be doing some walkarounds and explanation videos.

Hereís the link to our recent mini vid!


And hereís a couple pics.

It hooks pretty good but does crack them loose at the top of 2nd gear. Itís fun haha. Iíll eventually get a proper wheel setup geared for traction (15ís with ET streets should do), but for now I donít mind skating a bit! With launch control it little just lights them up haha!

Thx! Ya I was pretty excited to see them post it.
