    Default 1UZ into MX22, more pics now.

    i wasn't gonna start this thread until i had a good load of pics of progress, but i thought it might help me to gather info and tips if someone see's something that i could change or do better with.


    At this stage the motor is in, but the position needs to be tweaked a little to gain some room for the thermo's and exhaust, and steering, and the sump.


    so, what i've got is:

    UCF10/11 1UZ-FE(that's what was here and cheap)
    front sump was changed to mid sump
    custom exhaust manifolds being made in stainless
    hilux/pug front brake upgrade
    st141 rear disc brakes on the way
    e diff changed to f diff
    UZS131 auto(slipyoke)
    custom mounts
    custom gearbox crossmember
    UZS131 ecu(i'm gonna run tiptronic controller)
    mx83 tailshaft yoke to be fitted to standard mx22 tailshaft
    vb commonwhore rack(might not be suitable as i didn't know about bumpsteer, ackerman angle etc)

    i'll think of the rest if/when i can.


    any helpful hints and advice welcome

    i'll be taking the motor out this weekend i reckon, so i might take some pics then, and i'll put the ones i have up soon.


    cheers, joe

    I'm looking forward to seeing some pics of this. I'd be rather interested in putting a 1UZ into a MX23 at some stage.

    here's a couple of pics, nothing special. i'll be taking the engine out so i can modify the mounts i made. i'll also try to get some more of the exhaust manifold's done while it's out.

    Very cool.

    It is certainly tight but looks do-able.

    Good luck with it.

    yeah very tight. the biggest pain is the exhaust. it's gonna be an arse to get in there, and to get the nuts done up, not to mention access to the engine mounts

    anyways, i'm moving the mounts forward a bit so you can get at them from under the front

    i've removed all of the accessories from it bar the alternator, so that gives me a bit more room at the front of the car for thermo's, and also makes it easier to change the timing belt. if anyone want's more details on the alternator tensioner rig let me know, but i should have some pics this weekend any way.

    Good work.

    Cambelt1 dropped one in an MX13. Even with the engine moved over to the passenger side a bit, there wasn't enough room for the smaller manual steering box. The Commodore rack might work, but you might have some luck with something like an AE86 or RA65 rack. We thought that hanging the rack off a crossmember that bolted to where the steering box and idler arm bolt to the sub frame might be the go.

    Gearbox Xmember is easy.

    There isn't much room for a decent exhaust - I suspect you'll be limited to the standard Crown log manifolds. Even then, you'll need to modify the driver's side to clear the connection between column and rack.

    Also with regard to radiator, not sure if there is a 4 core the same width as an MX22 one.

    thanks GT.

    i'm making custom exhaust manifolds with 1 1/4" S/S 90 degree elbows, they're only about 70mm high

    yeah this rack sits in the recess of the mid sump, mounts will be welded to the corners of the xmember. i'm using what i believe are tr magna ball joints one it, and the control rods had to be chopped about 50mm each and extra thread added. this rack has an extra shaft with two uni joints on it, should help me to put it in the appropriate place.

    gearbox xmember was SOOO EASY! a bit of RHS with a large hole in the top worked perfectly. although i have to move the engine back 20mm so this will have to be tweaked where it bolts to the car.

    the exhaust "clearance" with the engine back in. i can lift the engine up to give a bit mor room, but it think i'll have to persuade the rails.

    by the way, where does the dipstick go through the head on crowns? this sump hasn't got provisions for one, so i thought there must be somewhere i can upt it in the head instead of trying to weld to the sump.
