It would be cool if they made a stroker kit for our 2jz, I remember when I was a kid helping rebuild a 454 into a 509 and a 350 into a 383 with the stroker kits, it was crazzy fun!

BC has stroker kits for 2jz. To much money though, 4-7k to make it a 3.4l i believe. Im not going that route though. It would be cool if someone committed to that

I wonder what theses companys (holley, eldelbrock, brian cower) do with these parts that just sit around on shelves in warehouses if their not bought. Our car's are about 14 years old and I'm sure no ones bought a stroker kit in a long time. Even an old chevy 350 or 454 stroker kit, are people building hot rods all over the world still and using this stock?

Had some time to start taking some things off today. Valve covers, wire harness, fuel rail, lower intake manifold. heres pics...



Im planing on powder coating or painting the engine components black. Before I do, can I use a stock fuel rail on a turbo application? Don't want to paint parts if i won't be using them. I should have a lil more time this weekend to remove the cams and head. More to come....

OK got a lot done today, I took off: cams, head, power steering pump, water pump, pulleys, timing belt, A/C compressor, alternator, oil filter housing, on and on. So here are some progress pictures for your viewing pleasure.

Head removed. Im going BC all the way on this build. Going to order BC SS valves, Titanium springs, and retainers. Should be fun!


Top of the block looking at the pistons. Not sure how these are supposed to look but, the look bad to me lol.
going to get BC rods and some kind of forged piston (CP,Wiseco,ex.)


My current BC 264 cams and head studs


Pulleys by PHR. I had them anodized but didn't like how they turned out so much, so Im going to get them redone more to my liking. Also going to replace the Adj. cam gear with a BC cam gear i picked up from a member here.


Power steering pump and water pump. Both going to be replaced. At least the water pump.


A/C compressor


Block by the end of the afternoon.


Parts are being ordered and the head and block are pretty much ready for the machine shop. more progress very soon....

Well dropped the head and block off at the machine shop. These guys were nice. RNR Machine Shop, family owned. My stepdad has known them for 30+yrs. They did work on his dragsters back in the day. So in the mean time I decided to go ahead and start cleaning some engine parts for a DIY paint job. Im using gasoline and mineral spirits with wire brushes as my cleaning tools. Started on the valve covers, painted them primer today. They will get painted yellow tomorrow. Here are a couple pics of my products and progress...


More to come very soon...
