    looks like 2jz is the go
    do you know if the 2j is longer than the 1j
    i would like to keep the radiator behind radiator the support panel and still retain the a/c condensor
    would the a/c compressor fit in between the chassis rails/steering box area
    being an old bastard i need to keep the a/c
    what rpm would the turbo start to make decent boost
    are high stall converters available of the shelf for these autos or custom job
    what stall speed should i be looking for just looking for enough to eliminate some lag
    thanks

    The 2JZ is about 25mm taller than the 1JZ, but otherwise dimensions are identical.

    A/C compressor is on the passenger side so you won't have any clearance problems with steering components.

    With the stock sequential turbo setup you'll have strong boost before 2000rpm. Lag is not an issue with this engine.

    i had the chance to drive a jza80 tt supra and after driving it i definately agree with this statement it felt like it would benefit from a taller diff ratio it just pissed through the gears so quick although im not sure if any mods were done but it definately had the stock turbos
    does anyone know the weight of a jza80 auto tt

    I've got a 1JZ-GTE in a RN85. The shop that did the conversion managed to keep the twin terbo by shaving a little off the the pipe that hits the clutch master cylinder and welding a plate over the hole. The A/C compressor fitted no worries but the condenser went under the tray with a thermo fan. Radiator and intercooler were custom made with the radiator inside the support panel and intercooler fitted outside with a bit shaved off the back of the grill. By any chance does your speedo use a electrical setup? Mine did and caused some hassles 'cause the JZA70 manual used a mechanical setup. The mechanic wound up using the electrical sensor with the mechanical's shaft and cog.

    It's a tight fit. I have to take the whole engine out to get at the bolts on the top of the bell housing.

    The torque is great. Accellerating with an 18 1/2' ski boat and it doesn't even notice it, and if you take it easy you get the same economy as the 22R.

    anything will fit! just depends how much firewall your willing to cut! for instance there is 240mm from the rear of the rad support panel to the front of the pulleys in my rn90 with 1uz. although to go that far back you can kiss the aircon and heater asemblys goodbye. i think rare spare sells sumpn i can adapt though.

    I think the US version came out with a 3RZ (they were one engine generation ahead) so it shouldn't be all that hard..

    I just started a new thread that might have a link that will tell you what was in the overseas version of your lux. I can't remember what model you said you had but the Gen 3 luxs had the 22R-E (TE on the surfs 4runners) and the Gen 4 luxs had the 3RZ if I remember right.
    Here's the thread - http://www.toymods.net/forums/showthread.php?t=17896

    Happy hunting

    How times have changed

    j/k

    Couple of 3rz turbos around. Lance being one. Decompression plated and cc'd chambers in his AFAIK. 8.3ish compression, Bit over 300rwhp on 13-14psi Definitely another option other than 1j/2j/7m.
