89 I just picked up for 900 cash, 3" titanium exhaust, Mkiv wheels, Aem SAFC, manual boost controller, someone frankensteined alot of the motor so I am going to rebuild the 7mgte or swap to 2jz (I got most of the funds), girlfriend talked me into it, Soooo neither of them are running... yet. If any one has any tips for which one I should do or any words of wisdom, feel free to share
I feel like this is a trick question....(I got most of the funds), girlfriend talked me into it, Soooo neither of them are running... yet. If any one has any tips for which one I should do or any words of wisdom, feel free to share
Well here is the deal with the 89 turbo I picked up... It looks like the guy who had it before me hacked away at different parts of the wiring harness, no turbo, no maf sensor, no turbo elbow, an AEM safc and boost controller that I dont know how they hooked it up, Compression on the engine was about 110 psi across the board ( do you think these numbers come from it not running and setting for awhile?), and the body looks like someone popped some holes in some black and blue paint cans and threw them at the car. Besides that the interior is tip top. I figured if I was going to be spending a good bit to get it running and looking right why not go big. I dunno though I keep talking myself in and out of it. Thanks for the welcomingWelcome!
If built right, the 7M can push into 4 digit HP, though not many have done it. But, not many people need 1000HP either. You could blow your wad on the 2JZ, or spend it on the 7M and be ahead of the game. So, if all you have is the funds for the 2JZ, you'll have nothing left for upgrades. I have ridden in a stock 2JZ MKIII, and in my opinion, it is not worth it, unless you can upgrade as well. If I wanted monster HP, I'd go 2JZ.
7m fails even if its built correctly , ive seen one do that personally..everything was done to specs and it didnt last long, ask racerxj220. The 2jz to me is just a more reliable motor than the 7m even the 2jzge . Racerxj220 made over 600rwhp on a non turbo block. i know the 7m can handle a good bit but in end the 2jz is superior to the 7m.I'm a 7M loyalist myself. If built correctly it is a reliable and powerful engine.
I work at the Home Depot off 72 in Madison. Should be seeing more of it floating around out that way .Name: Gavyn
On Sunday, I saw three white Mk3's in the Huntsville/Madison Area, and was wondering if any of their owners are on the forum. It is always nice to see other MK3's on the road.
