Today I did not have much time to work but I test fit the turbo and Intake Manifold. I ordered a 1" spacer to keep the turbo compressor cover from hitting the number 1 exhaust runner. This looks promising and it clears the hood. The 2JZ exhaust manifold fits nice with the Spacer in place, and with minor fabrication I think it will mate to the bottom half of the old 7M manifold to the cat.
The intake needs to be re-fabricated a bit since it hits the hood in the front. The turbo drain and all the water lines were test fitted today, and a MOCK throttle cable linkage was fabricated for throttle.
My Ls2 coils won't sit in the head like they did in the 7M so I can go back to the old style that I used to have them mounted until I get some 1ZZ coils. I already have 1zz pig tails.
I connected the feed of the fuel rail and it plays nice so all I have to do now is set the fuel pressure regulator in and sort out the vacuum.
Tomorrow I will have pictures since I did not get to do any work until after 4 pm and when I stoped it was dark at 8pm!
If all goes well I will start her up tomorrow.
Things I need to do is get the lower IC pipe and a aluminum elbow fabbed to the turbo. I also must fab brackets for the oil cooler.
