We used a QuickTime bell for a t56 this car has a t56 in it with an aje k member which makes it very easy to make mounts . We also were able to use a stiffler x member an keep the trans mount in the Stock spot . My one friend had a Toyota Getrag in his reef car and ditched it . Guys have used Chevy trans , they make adapters most turbo 400 someDon't apologize, aside from the coil packs on the valve cover, and the obvious dual cam gears, that engine looks a lot like mine.I'm gonna tap you as a source for info when I get closer to the end of the year. When you google 2jz engine for sale, there are several importers that pop up with pics of engines out of Japanese Lexus models that aren't sold here. If you can tell me what to look for as a starting point,..ill buy one of those engines.
Provided I can adapt that engine to an SBF trans bell.
Can you talk about that?
Of them 4l80 I think . They make converters to work with that stuff . As far as the ford auto I’d be a little lost there.
Engine - this long block was from a soarer originally which is a JDM counter part of a us Lexus sc300 . The JDM got the turbo engine which are originally twins . This year this car got the expensive single turbo manifold but before had the eBay variant like the intake manifold . Chinese and cheap but worked .
If it were me . Spend the extra on a non VVTI engine . Makes life simple they drive just as good . Those coils are IGN1a which is what all the high hp guys are going too . This had LS coils on it before. My buddy said night and day diff from startup to everything on down . Same with the cresssida I posted had stock Toyota coils and he went to these too to aleviate a high rpm breakup issue in 3rd . Now he’s running .028 gap vs the .017 he had to run before to not have blow out .
