Fizzy's 2JZ-GTE Single Turbo Build

Hey guys,

So I'm pretty new to the IS world as I just purchased my own a couple months ago. It's a 2003 Absolutely Red 5 speed with LSD. It has everything Sport Design and I'm like 99% sure it is, but apparently they weren't made in red? Maybe it was an individual ordered car? I'm not sure, and doesn't really matter to me, lol.

I've modded cars before, but never to the extent of what I'm planning with this. I used to have a 2006 Acura TL and a 350ZR pictured here, maybe you'll recognize them?

Anyway, I waited to make a thread until after I started the build so I would actually have some pictures to show you guys. I'm hoping for a reliable 450-500whp and I plan to build this with my very good friends and 2JZ gurus, Mike and Chris (from dressupbolts), and by with I mean I'm going to end up doing a whole lot of staring, but I plan to learn a lot! Chris is the one who convinced me to purchase and swap the IS, otherwise I was planning to purchase a B7 S4 and I'm so glad I listened to him lol.


Chris' 2JZ-GTE swapped Q45 which I shot for Import Tuner last year (currently being rebuilt to be more badass!)

Article - http://www.importtuner.com/features/..._infiniti_q45/






Mike's 2JZ-GTE and rare R154 5 speed swapped GS300, don't have pics of the exterior but I'll update later!

First day



2JZ-GTE the day I picked it up



Bulky twin turbos off!



Starting to work on the gauge pod, it came textured which I had to sand completely



After a lot of trimming, body filler, some sanding to shape



More sanding and layers of bondo and primer later with a finishing paint layer, not bad for a first time, right?



AEM EUGO Wideband and SAFCII came in





Supra Throttle cable



More parts started to come in and the office room in the house started looking like a dump lol





Prepping to take the motor out



Getting closer!



Motor's out, now have to clean the bay of the grime and small accessories



Squeaky clean and ready for paint!



Ordered this turbo, Borg Warner S363 (63mm) but decided to go a different route



New turbo - COMP Turbo 6767 (67mm) Polished with ceramic coating





Finishing cherry on the top! Squash air freshener, tried out this treefrog brand and it's alright

Haha I was hesitant to post up because everyone doing a build is like 800whp+ on here haha and nothing fancy just wald flares for now, thinking of doing something crazier like Datsun flares or something, idk

It's alright, might look bigger in the picture, shouldn't be too too laggy hopefully and yes, they're just the Wald flares

Wow, in for the updates!!!

Too many people try to impress others and build their car to what they know someone will like.
You lose sight on what you like, when you simulate your likes around others dislikes.

Haha thanks man, I didn't know you moved to NY! I've seen your car in pics and stuff and love it but I honestly had no clue about the GTE! Hope you still have it?
