will the 2jzgte spark plug cover fit on a 2jz ge?

Title says it all.

I feel like the GTE looks better than the GE.. I know the valve covers are slightly different but i was curious if the sparkplug cover will fit on the GE since i feel the GE is just kinda... ugly

How do you plan on getting the spark cover to fit under the GE throttle body?
You need a front facing intake manifold and GTE valve covers.



Once you've obtained a front facing manifold and GTE valve covers, here is the difference of the covers mated to the GE head:

haha, I just posted the mounting difference so there's your research.

The GE valve covers have a "drop" in them to accommodate the overhead throttle body and intake piping. Meaning, they do not have mounting points for the GTE spark cover. Although, if you want to keep the stock covers, there are ways to adapt.

Just look at some pics and you'll see the difference right away.

haha don't blame Mr. Clean for his sarcastic yet accurate responses. Literally every new member says they're boosting soon.

If this isn't your first rodeo then you would have found your answer within 2 minutes.

Just a heads up the car isn't as easy to turbocharge as you might think.

And any question you could possibly ask (or at least 98%) have been asked and answered before.

I didn't find a clean cut answer if the sparkplug cover would fit. I know the valve covers won't but i figured id ask. Not a big deal.


Anyways i do know its not as easy as throw on a basic turbo kit and good to go. there's alot more to it and im 100% ready to build it. it's going to be my fun/project car i already have a daily so the amount of downtime doesn't matter do me.

No no no, not some. Literally. EVERY. ONE.

Heads up, you are not buying a four door supra. You are buying a 12 year old car (or platform if you fancy) at best. Everything that can be done to it has been done before.

Anyway, welcome man, and good luck with your project.
