** NEW PICS ON PAGE 11*** Well, after waiting awhile I decided to post up what is going on with the build. I decided to ditch the 7M because it is no longer cost effective.

Most of the stuff has been acquired but some is still left to purchase. Going in my 88 MKIII is:

Engine
Stock shortblock 2JZGE-T measured/miked out
Mild port on head with deshrouded valves
Cometic 8.6:1 c/r (0.76") headgasket
Schneider 260 regrinds


Turbo and Intake
T\GT4294 w/thermal-coated 1.01 4" vband discharge
Ching chang chow braced SS exhaust manifold (thermal coated)
50 mm ching chang chow wastegate
3" intercooler piping
4" full exhaust
12x24x3" intercooler
q45 throttle body
custom front facing intake

Fuel/Ignition
2jzgte AEM EMS
re-pinned 2jzge wiring harness
1000cc precision injectors
dual pumps
dual-feed stock fuel rail
AEM CDI
2jz GTE Coil Packs
7m CPS

Trans/Clutch
1jz bell housing on R154
ATS Carbon triple-plate clutch

Chrome Ruff Racing 280 Series wheels
18x8.5 35mm 245/40
18x9.5 45mm 275/40

Since this is just a build thread, I dont want to argue the whole point of 2j vs 7m and why I went 2j but if you want to talk about it check out one of these threads:

Looking good man!

What've you got all over everything though? Sheetrock dust?
Dust from block sanding the body. I havent painted outside the engine bay yet.

Nice choices. Green and chrome go well together in my book! And you're certainly going to get your fair share of people wondering what the hell that sports car that just passed them was. :)

I should have it running in a month or two. i still have to drop 2300 on the clutch and finish building the manifold, IC pipes and exhaust.

Finish the wiring....

After that I have to spray the paint....

With the GT4294 I should be able to put down a healthy 700 hp. Possibly more. We will see how she acts when I turn up the boost....

Damn there must be a rule or something in Washington, that if you own a supra, it has to put down more than 650 rwhp.................:biglaugh:

I know of two supras now that meet that law.

I got my turbo in the mail today. I think I strained my back bending over the fender to test fit it. Its fucking huge. It looks like I will have to put a spacer in to lift the turbo enough for the compressor housing outlet to move to the 6 o'clock position. About 2 inches should do it but more test fitting will tell for sure.

Notice the size of the cam gear vs inlet?

The intake manifold is coming along pretty well. I was surprised how easy it was to weld aluminum with a wire-feed MIG from harbor freight. It took awhile to grind down though.... Pretty much all I have left with the FFI is to position the q45 flange and weld on the caps. Some grinding on the exterior to clean up the beads too.....

Well I have a few different options to make this thing fit. Basically, it fits but the the compressor cover is pretty close to the strut tower and the compressor outlet goes directly into the frame.

Im deciding between:

Mounting this turbo on a 3" spacer - this will require a modified hood.

Modifying the compressor outlet to include a 90 degree bend in the end of it.

:dunno:

Looking good man. there are some serious cars coming from the NW right now! What is going on with that FFIM though? IT looks like it warped pretty bad! But I love the color and I am not a big bling man but those wheels will look wicked on there! Keep up the hard work!

The warp of the FFIM looks worse than it really is because the cuts werent straight down the sides of the tube. It did warp a bit when I welded it but not too bad.

This turbo is big enough to eat small children!:1zhelp:

I just ordered an ATS Triple Carbon clutch today - pretty good deal. 1350kg/2970 pound pressure plate isnt much more than stock and is rated to 1200 or so hp.... Better than a 3200 pound RPS single plate pulling on your thrust washer.

FYI If anyone wants one they come in around 2500 shipped with all of the attachments. And thats for a triple. Thats 300 cheaper than the twin-plate RPS Carbon clutch. I think the twin ATS carbon comes in around 2k.

Tires and rims are next on the list while I still have some cash!

I just ordered some Sumitomo HTR Z II tires: 245/40/18 for the front and 275/40/18 for the rear. They were $451.68 shipped - not too bad.

They will be mounted on a set of 18x9.5 +45mm on the back with 18x8.5 +35mm on the front. The wheels are the ones that I posted up earlier - chrome with a fat dish....

are you using a spoolgun MIG welder for the aluminum, or just a basic MIG? 120V?

ive got a 120V Lincoln, curious if it can do small amounts of aluminum work.

My welder is a cheapass Harbor Freight 220v wire feed with gas shielding. The aluminum wire feeds great through the tube to the gun - about three feet.

I thought it would be harder than it is, just get some argon....

I just ordered my wheels - as advertised RUFF Racing 18x8.5 and 9.5 chrome. The tires came it today - WOW! They are WIDE on the back set 275/40 series. Just what I wanted. Maybe now I can get some power to stick.

HAHA I said SOME power. At least more than my sawblade 16's w/stock tires.

I polished the throttle body today - it was hard to get in all the cracks and stuff. Certainly not a perfect job by any means - neither is my manifold, but it does have some shine to it. I coated it with some Glisten PC by POR 15. Its a catalyzed clear coat made specifically for polished metal surfaces.

Some quick updates:

Got the wiring done for the AEM. Because I was using a GTE AEM some of the pinouts were different and I had to move the wires. This meant that I had to trace them ALL out to ensure they went to the appropriate place. By using the wiring diagrams of the 7M/MKIII chassis, the 2jzgte ECU and the 95 Supra TSRM I was able to figure out where everything went. This whole process was very time consuming. Keep in mind though that I am very anal and that I wanted it to look nice. Redoing the wire harness (tape, loom, grouping of wires, etc) was the largest consumer of time for me. For somebody to just get it running they wouldnt have to do all the stuff I did.

Also, the following website was VERY helpful. Anyone needing wiring for a 2jz transplant can use this: http://www.supras.nl/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=34&Itemid=50 Dont be turned away by the fact that it is addressing using 2jz electronics - it tells you where all the wires go and what they do so you dont have to trace each one through the wiring diagrams.

I am still going to have to tap some vacuum lines for the brake booster and gauges, etc. Ill probably just tap a big one and run it to a separate vacuum manifold.

Oh - and thanks to Justin (user ID Justin) for the climate control bulb/LED mod to all blue. If anybody is looking to have it done you should contact him - im sure he could hook you up for a reasonable price.....

I got the wheels in last week - they will go on once I have a chance to roll the car out on the driveway to wash it before I resume block sanding and spray the paint. I want to have the body painted this week. We will see how that goes.........

Wow, amazing work man. Things are comnig together nicely...and good thing you got the wiring out of the way - sooo annoying.

Did you ever sort out what you were going to do with the turbo spacer? That is kinda close to the strut tower.

No - I havent tackled that issue yet. Whatever I do I also have to keep in mind that there needs to be more room for the compressor outlet. I have one of those cast 90 bends from precision turbo that will be welded on the end on the compressor housing.

Looks Great! Are those the BIC motor mounts? I cant see very well but do they connect directly to the chasis mount or do they still have the rubber piece in between them?

Modified hood leading people to think there's a big ass turbo underneath the hump FTW!

They connect to the block and then the mount with the rubber spacer. Basically, they take the place of the block brackets on the 7m
