So I finally finished the swap. Everything on it came from a JZS147 Aristo:
- Motor Mounts
- Sidemount Intercooler w/ Piping
- Fuel Pump
- Hydraulic Fan System
- Power Steering Reservoir
The only thing aftermarket on this swap (aside from my HKS Hiper cat back from an Aristo) is my Blitz intake kit. I was able to source a Blitz intake kit made specifically for a JZS147 so the bracket lined up where the mounting points should be. Also, I stuck with the stock twin turbos so the firewall was "massaged" gently enough to fit. The A/C compressor is from my original motor. I just kept the compressor to the side, still attached to the A/C lines, so it didn't have to be recharged. All maintenance was done (timing belt, seals, etc.) and I had a reman. rack and pinion installed at the same time as well from jorgenauto.com. I had to replace some suspension parts as well in the rear of my car cause they were causing my tires to shake in the back. Also, I painted and installed a JDM front bumper to accommodate the sidemount because the OEM bumper had no inlets for the air to get to the intercooler and I didn't want to hack up the old bumper either. Anyway... here are the pics I took with my Canon SLR camera yesterday for fun. Thought I would have a fun little mini-photo shoot:
Then, I bought another little toy. I had one of these on my Sr20 swapped 240 way back in 2005. I always wanted another one so I said screw it and picked up one used off another forum... but I couldn't just be like everyone else.... here's a little before... and a sneak peek of the after... I pick it up tomorrow...
It was in great shape... just had a scuff in one side and partly on the label.... can't do much about the label but the other part....
