Thanks, I've gotten quite a bit done to the gte but not quite done yet. Took off the gte harness and shipped that out to get it merged with the sc one, took off the pulleys from the front just to get a couple things replaced (cam & crank seals, timing belt, serpentine belt, pulleys, water pump to a USDM, and possibly the tensioner) ordered quite a couple more parts just waiting on those which I've been told are on back order...
Also picked up a cheap quarter panel from the junkyard with the same color! Along with with a spoiler I basically got for free. (These will probably be put on until after the car is running). I will
Keep the pictures and the progress coming. Looks good so far.
Thanks, I got a couple things done to the build, I finally got my harness back hooked up most of the connectors I will post more pics up later, hopefully the engine will go in this Saturday!
-replaced front sump with rear sump oil pan
-replaced cam and crank seals
-installed USDM water pump (replaced seals)
-replaced timing belt with gates racing belt
-timed, and torqued everything
-painted block black
-installed serpentine belt
-bolted down manifold
-partially hooked up harness
Things to do...
-install intake back on with new gasket
-get fitting for borgwarner s366 pick up line
-get valve covers powder coated (black)
-replace main seal
-get it on a hoist and install r154 transmission
I got the soarer r154 marlin crawler built trans hooked up and both engine and tranny were mounted into the bay. I ended up going with everything just powdercoated wrinkle black, right now the entire intake, water neck, cold side of the turbo, and the sway bar are getting ready in wrinkle black this week.
Here is my progress so far I got new valve covers with new gaskets as well.
Here are the clutch and pressure plate getting installed...
Here it is ready to be dropped in.
And it's finally in the engine bay at 3am!
This picture Is after getting my valve covers back in wrinkle black.
So I hooked up everything this weekend to start up the 2jz. Filled it with fluids, checked all my harness connections, plugged up all my coolant hoses and even the wideband and pre cat narrowband O2 sensors on the 4" SS downpipe along with a brand new battery but it just keeps cranking and does not start.
I did a compression test on all 6 cylinders and they all were 150-153 which passes the requirement. Normal compression I believe is 156 for a healthy engine.
I am definitely getting fuel as well because I disconnected the fuel rail and saw tons of fuel pour out from the line.
Every time I crank it over for about 10 seconds it keeps trying to crank and it will intermittenly misfire if it tries turning on. My friend took off the intercooler piping off of the intake and he almost got blasted with a blue flame in the face because it went through the intake.
I will post pictures tomorrow but at this point I am not sure what it is!!!!!! The timing marks line up on both the cams and the crank pin lines up with the dot as well.
So I took off everything including timing belt lined up all the dots again both on the crank and the cams. The only thing I can think of right now would be that the igniter is acting up so this weekend my buddy is going to let me borrow his 2jzgte igniter to see if it makes a difference.
HERE IS A VIDEO TO ME TRYING TO START IT UP THIS LAST WEEKEND. SOUNDS A LOT LIKE TIMING BUT JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. HELP.
What harness are you using...and make sure all electrical connections are plugged in....What ECU are you using....etc...the more info you can provide the more we can try to help
I'm using a 2jz-gte harness that I got made from freed engineering it was merged with my sc300harness, I've checked that all connections are secured except for the O2 sensor and the coolant temperature gauge. I'm using the stock 2JZ-GTE ECU as well.
