    Default What is a reputable place to buy a 1JZ?

    I've looked around and I can't find something I trust at a reasonable price. Anyone?

    no more than $1,400 for a motor, harness, and good ecu (including turbos, alternator, ignitor, etc)

    eBay. Just google the names of the sellers.

    Stay away from tigerjapanese.

    Zerolift is good.

    Usually every importer is going to have a bad comment here and there. All the time tho I'd stay away.

    Think I got mine from jdmenginecorp or something like that. Had very low miles or the oil was changed very often cause it looked brand new. Tho not every motor will look like that.

    For a little over 1200 you can get the harness and ECU. You just have to call. I have bought several engines from this guy. They took good care of me every time. Good customer service too. I ordered a b16b from here once, it came with a cracked valve cover. He shipped a new one to me no cost to me at all, and no questions asked. I sent him a pic, and it was in my hands in a few days.

    I 2nd ebay! That's where I got mine and it was fine. As long as the engine was pulled out of a Japanese vehicle then it should have low miles and be pretty safe.

    I'll chime in here since I got my 1jz from Ebay.

    I got mine from jdmenginescorp like hvyman, mine was extremely clean just like hvyman described! Heres a few pics of my 1jz as it looked when the delivery driver droppped it off and i had unwrapped it from all the plastic wrap they put around it. My particular engine had very nice condition cam lobes and the bottom end looked like it had been rebuilt maybe? Some of the rods had a signature or rebuild mark on them that neither me nor my friends had ever seen before (friend that could read Japanese said it was initials on each rod). My 1j did come with a bad ECU though, which took me a while to figure out since I was new to 1j's but I think the stock ECU going/being bad is just a hit or a miss.

    Heres a link to the post of the pics I took of mine when it arrived.

    Either way, even though jdmenginescorp was the first place ive ever gotten an imported engine from. They kept me happy throughout the process and kept me well informed on shipping. Engine also arrived completely unharmed; they used southwestern engine transport (or something like that) to ship to here in Houston. And I would not hesitate getting another engine from them if I needed one.

    Hopefully this helps ya a little bit.

    I will check them out. Out of curiosity did they replace the bad ECU with a good one?
