The last time my 7M drove under it's own power



My 7m at the end



My 7m Now



Here's photo's of the new start and i have my work cut out for me






The Turbo i have to use not sure if i'm gonna stick with it.




As of right now i need to gather is

Re: Furious 7M owner who gave Up.

Looked like u had a very clean 7M. I was confused to why you were trying to pull the head off if you're pulling the motor anyway? Why is it on a flat bed? Going to the shop where its getting the swap done i assume? And the pics of the 1jz...hanging backward in an engine bay confused me even more haha.

Thankyou

I was confused to why you were trying to pull the head off if you're pulling the motor anyway?
I was taking the parts off and Selling them i was going to sell the Head also.

Why is it on a flat bed? Going to the shop where its getting the swap done i assume?
The car blew the head gasket about 20miles from my home at 5am Sunday Morning 8-5-12 after a long Saturday night as soon as i saw the white smoke i pulled over into that parking lot where i had the car towed home.

And the pics of the 1jz...hanging backward in an engine bay confused me even more haha.
If you look Close you can see that the car the engine is hanging over is not a Toyota but a Nissan :) This is what the original owner of the engine had plans for and how the motor was when i picked it up.

Re: Furious 7M owner who gave Up.

You had a very nice setup on the 7M Jordan. Strange you got a BHG. I look forward to your 1Z build
Not so strange i beat the hell out of my car and had a composite head gasket.

Thanks for the compliment

I will be following your build closely as I will be doing the same swap in the near future
Cool i will be doing this swap with in the next monthi should be finished. I am not per say the best person to follow IMHO and i'm sure some others but i always get great advice from members and friends on this site.

Feel free to ask questions there's a lot of people who have already posted in this thread that know everything yo could ask

I.E Clint,Albert,Andy (iBoughtaSupra),Steven and many more.

Also Andy has put together some very helpful walk throughs

I've seen Andy's walk throughs they cover pretty much everything down to a tee. I still need to decide if I'm going to go ahead and do the swap with stock twins and ecu or (preferably) save up some more mula and go big single and standalone.

if you can get rid of the twins when the motor is out of the car i'd go for it because once there in it's a PITA ill be running a stock ecu for awhile with my single.

That was my philosophy, cash would be the only thing to hold me back. What are you running for injectors and are you going to tune it?

Jordan,

Don't be a wuss when doing the swap. Degrease everything. Sand, Prime and paint it white. It will look sick as white flows with pink, purple and a load of colors that can be used as accents in the bay.

I highly advise you to get a standalone off the bat. These ECU fight with you for everything especially when you add cams.

You think I should do the bay white instead of black ?

Ofcourse.

Why in the world would you do it in black? My friend with his 240sx did his in black when his car is white and it's the only thing I don't like.

It would look better, 100% better. Black just doesn't do anything. People like it because it hides the dust but white just looks good.

A black engine bay belongs in........a black car.

I'll need to look into doing a standalone. I might just swap it and keep it bone stock until spring when I get more monies saved up. Time to go apply for jobs again.

Not to thread Jack but Andy what budget friendly systems would you reccomend? A standalone is nothing to skimp on but I need the beat bang for my buck

Ask a local tuner what he prefers to tune on.

Okay I'm convinced ill go with white
Stay white.

And don't use the SAFC. Put 4440s in with a AFPR and just lower the base pressure by like 10psi. The 1jz ecus tend to run fat. (10.0afr) mine ran at 11.5afr with tweaking the regulator.

I wouldn't trust the mines ecu

Re: Furious 7M owner who gave Up.

You still need sensors and what not though correct? It's not plug and play either (not sure if anything is for a 1jz)


Edit, I don't want to thread jack so if anybody has input feel free to pm me
. I honestly don't mind I think good info should be spread as much as possible.

Stinger is plug and play but by the time you add everything up the 48 may not be the cheapest deal, but its the better deal, you will only spend maybe $400 more going with the 48...
