    Default MZ20 - 7MGTE To 1JZGTE Conversion Pics

    Hi Guys,

    I received my JZA70 half cut two weeks ago and have begun work. Just thought i'd share Saturday's success with everyone!



    The removal of the p00 begins!

    Yeah i am! I usually have a really pessimistic attitude when it comes to anything involved with cars... but so far its been surprisingly easy for a bunch of guys that don't really know what they're doing

    Yeah - I'd like to take more, but needing to completely clean the hands before using the camera is annoying. I'll try and take some more next time!

    oh great, i get a slightly quicker soarer then find out you're going ahead with the 1J conversion...


    Well there's a huge power gap now... hahaha...

    And your soarer STILL looks better than mine!

    Best of luck with the swap, hope it all goes well!

    Are you doing what some of the SA/ WA guys have done and just dropping the guts of your MZ20 and bolting up all the JZA70 subframe?

    Hadn't planned on it, was just going to swap the engines. I don't know if i have the ability to drop the engine with the limited amount of lifting materials I have at home.

    I wasn't even aware that I could run into this possible problem!

    What year was the cutoff for these changes? Mine's a 90' Soarer.

    nah you are all good with your car...i belive its 89.5 and later soarers and supras had the different X member (7M equipped models anyway) and the dropping straight in of a 1J is a-ok
