I live in rochester NY, based on your cars plate your in PA so posabley not TO far away (I went to college in Williamsport PA). I have done the 1uz swap on my MK3 and on a friends MK2 I could probbly help you out with yours and you may be surprised on how cheep it can be done based on what exactly you want to do. Let me know if you want help with the swap and or the custom fabricated parts needed as I am a machinest and make most of my own parts. I always like working on making a nice supra nicer.I'd buy it myself, but I can't even afford to to the 1UZ swap I've been drooling over.
I would've thought the best/safest option would be to drive it directly off the crank - otherwise you're introducing another failure point (crank to water pump belt) into the mix?I got around to test fitting the dry sump pump on the 1GZ over the weekend. Its a 3 stage Razor pump and I mounted it in the old AC compressor location. I am planing on belt driving it off a second pulley on the water pump.
