Update!!

So everything is, in plan, where we want it to be. For now thing a working in slow motion as my friend begin to pack his thing to move from is appartment to his new house! So I'm kinda alone to work, begin on fitting everything, assembling everything, because he is going to be back on this in mid april, and I want to be ready to have only the wiring to do!!

Let's start that b**ch soon and make the car out for april!!! GOGOGO!!!

So here's pic of the engine finish one the engine stand! Pretty isn't it??

And here it is, finally in the engine bay! The engine mount, transmission and clutch are fully assemble. Oh and, brand new clutch while we were there! In fact we have made a lot of "while we are there... let do this!" you know!??

Next will be a new 3 layers Mishimoto Rad, with the Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator Hose, and an oil cooler!

I'm currently fitting the piping of the intercooler (2jz outlet/inlet are bigger than the 1jz one!) and relocating the windshield washer tank on the other side to have room for the oil cooler!

More pics to come!

so... NEW Updates!!!!!!! Yeah! loll

Here I've begin by installing the A/C line, A/C condenser and everything, also re-installing the greddy FMIC and begin to relocate the windshield washer tank to make room for a little something!

Finally got myself some new parts! Benen Tow hook for the front because I've discovered you can't be towed with a front lip without destroying it! And also an Cusco aluminum catch can!

and the "little something" that would go on the left side where the windshield washer tank used to be!
Brand new Mishimoto Oil Cooler, with AN fittings, stanless steel braid hoses (that would be trade for some black kevlar one!) and an universal Oil Filter Relocation Kit!

Click the image to open in full size.


Let's make brakets to make it fit!

Solid in place with three mounting point! And as you see here, I've fab myself a drain for the cooler with some An fittings because well.. AN fitting drain doesn't seem to exist as the shop guy told me!

Here the place I am mounting the filter. Fab a braket, and fit it on and through the batterie plate holder. Thanks to Optima Batterie to being smaller!! Perfect fit!!

Finally the look of it installed! You can see the cooler at the right, with the fu**ing powersteering coolant hoses in front of it. I'll get rid of that an another time. I'm curious to see the difference just like that!

Click the image to open in full size.


I have sand and paint every braket I've made in gloss black for protection and a better look!


So that was it for April!!

May Updates!!!

I've past all the time I can on the car with my friend! All we have in mind was.. MAKE IT START!
But first thing first, finishing everything to make it work go on!

For a better looking engine I make myself some fun with the sparkplug, fuses box and cruise control covers! Here's the result! Damn I like it! I've also make myself an custom intake pipe from the previous one that wasn't fitting there at all loll!

Click the image to open in full size.


A closer look! I can't wait to know what you guys think of it! Blue carbon!

Click the image to open in full size.


Got into polishing the P-S tank.. that was the only thing untouch so.... I've paint the braket in semi gloss black after it.

Click the image to open in full size.


OMG I'VE GOT IT! FINALLY!! Sorry.. I've got problems with MVPmotorsports that M.Del Angel solved! But I'm still waiting for the Mishimoto Top aluminum radiator hose.

Mishimoto 3row full Aluminum Radiator!! Let's cool this engine!!

Click the image to open in full size.


It's a MKIV Supra radiator so.. well.. doesn't fit! I trimmed the shroud and make brakets for the A/C fan.

Click the image to open in full size.


Also it was like a 3/4 inch too low, so I've extented the pin under it, thread and bolt it there and make a 3/4 inch sandwich bloc of hard nylon plastic to lift it up (trust me, that wont melt at all!!!)

Click the image to open in full size.


The radiator in place test fitting the height and place need (thank to me to having bolt the Oil filter braket near the center of the batterie plate because I've need to trim this plate to make room for the radiator!! It's so big...

Click the image to open in full size.


Now... the downpipe question.. do I take the damn ugly down pipe that was on the 1JZ setup, and make it fit to the already existing stock 2JZ Y pipe that got a 2 1/4 inches exist when I know I have an 3inch exhaust? Hell no! Head into it.. buy myself two (wayyy too long lolll) 2 1/4 inch exhaust tube, an 3/8 inch plate, and two 3inch flanges.

Let's fab a Y pipe downpipe!! (I love fabricating things!)

so the plan, take the 3/8 inch plate and duplicate the flange off the hold Y pipe that bold on the 2JZ (didn't think that would have been so hard for the 2 holes!!!!)

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.


As you can see I recycle the old downpipe and I also cut 4inch back in the exhaust line for a really nice fit. The 1JZ downpipe setup was.. well.. horrible! I can't not believed I've paid for that. Better do thing myself!!!

Finished product! And I've paint everything with black exhaust paint.

Click the image to open in full size.





So... we got everything plug in, time for some lub and coolant!!
10W40 Redline high performance synthetic oil + Mercedes Benz coolant for the radiator (freebie thanks to my friend!! And way better then the canadian tire fluo green thing)

Click the image to open in full size.


find an Overflow tank at my job when we've done the spring clean up. Sooo... I've fit it under the right headlight next to the windshield water tank. and there is air that can go between them for the brakes.

Click the image to open in full size.


Finally right fender bolt on. Shroud refinish, painted and installed. Realize that I won't need the Cruise control cover as.. we haven't find a way to hook it up to the 2JZ (into the wiring I mean, not physically) and I want to buy myself a hub, quick release and a Nardi steering wheel. So 3 reason to get it off! Buuuuuuut! It's so pretty!!! I've got to find an utility to him!

In fact, apart the power steering tank that is polish, and news parts, everything has been painted. I'm a car painter everyday so, that was the easy solution!
