Wheels are on

Long story short, i sold the +45's for more than i bought them for, and got some burning black KF's in the same sizes a few posts ago.


FINALLY got my sh*t together and threw em on:








Loving it. Not too stanced, not too sunk, i think it's a perfect fit. i just want to lower it a tad more and then i'll be set for a looooooong time. or until the winter comes. haha

Talk to Mo of/at Petrolwerks in Lindenhurst. Very impressive work and shop. They are super familiar with the 2Jz and swaps.

2017 stuff

Been a while since ive been on here, just been so busy with graduating, work and the holidays.

So!

Not too long ago i scored some JDM Altezza Gita rails....hindsight being 20/20 i should have stopped with the exterior mods after the Works but i can't resist JDM trinkets....




Also bought white_is's Ganadors....




Now with all the aero mods i've ever wanted, time for the matter at hand!



1JZ VVT-i! This isn't mine, this is some dude in Russia's Gita and it looks pretty much with how i want mine to look when it's done. Now that i don't have school to worry about i can start taking the boost/swap plunge.

I'm going to try and clear up whatever misconceptions there are left for 1JZ swaps, as it's pretty easy to wrap your head around

-2001 body plugs at the ecu are very similar, all thats needed to get it running is the MAF feed wire, bypass the Neutral safety switch, re-wiring the tach (or getting a 2002+ cluster)
-re-pinning a 2002+'s body plugs to 2001 (or with the mods located in Lucas' DIY wiring page) will get any other year to work with relative ease.
-use IS300 engine brackets on the engine, and it'll line up perfect
-you need an ETCS-i throttle engine....either JZS171 (crown athlete) or JZX110 (verossa, mark II) if you want to use your IS300 harness and then use a piggyback/standalone
-if you USE THE JDM ECU like i'm using, you'll need to swap over immobilizer chips in the ecus, or the car won't run (mind you, JZS171 engine sets most of the time DO NOT have immobilizer functions in their ecus, so if you buy a Crown motor you won't have to deal with this)

so with that, picked up some gauges...60mm Prosport boost and widebands







scored c1L's glovebox pod (thanks man!)





walbro 255....






got some massive fuel return lines from chaco...






Subaru WRX/Forester MAF (yes, this works for 1jz vvti dbw swaps!)




and then i managed to score a JZX110 Mark II ecu....with the master key, ignition cylinder and the key ring! now, i may be getting an immobilizer engine, i may not. it depends on where i get the engine. the place that i'd like to use DOES have one with an immobilizer, so when i pick up the engine itself we shall see if this pays off! It was cheap anyway, so i figured why not!





That dark grey slot in the ecu is for the immobilizer. if you get an ecu without this, you don't have an immobilizer.

as for the wiring, i'm having a custom harness made so that it will be plug and play, when i get it i'll post some pics. so that takes care of the headache issue of wiring! haha

later this week or next week i'll be ordering the service parts for the engine, and later down the line....say March or so...i'll be picking up an engine.

Cheers!

LOVE the rails! I thought those were a fairy tale find nowadays. I'm a tad jealous. Nice pickup!
