    Default MKIV Supra With 1JZGTE VVT-i

    I've search and this is the only MKIV that I can find that has done this conversion I think it's a rare thing to do. Has anybody else done this swap or seen another MKIV with this swap? I know he did a simple swap. I'm wondering if anybody took it further than this.

    I've always wanted to do this, unfortunately, I can't afford the 7m...

    Could be an upgrade if the car started life as a shell, or a blown GE or something like that in it.

    Sounds like it did indeed start life as a Non-turbo supra.

    Still a really cool swap.

    What's this noise I'm hearing lately about putting extra effort into something JUST to make it different?




    What other people have is not a factor in what pleases me.

    How is it not an upgrade from an non turbo car? Use Driftmotions ct15a service and you could have a fast and very enjoyable car. There's a reason why guys like their Tourer V's in Japan and other cars that used that engine. It was a very smooth and nice powerband and sounded just as good too. Watch HoonTV if you need a refresher.

    Now the brass tacks of it is the support on the VVTI 1jz is very low, turbo manifold options are few and expensively far between and the head is different. Also one of those engine sets isn't really economical in comparison to a regular 1jz, aristo 2jz or turboing the GE in the car already.

    That whole 'unique' thing is bullshit, the car would be different and still fast and enjoyable. Doing different things is the reason we are not all driving camaros and other standard issue american iron in the first place. Nothing wrong with those cars, but its not like many of us were grandfathered into Japanese turbo fun.
