Default My 2jzgte swap

Hi,
Just thought I would share some pictures of my car and the swap I am getting ready to do. Its a 1996 Sc300, black on black 5 speed, 200k, That I purchased from a long time female customer. I will probably be pulling the motor out this weekend. I'll keep posting pics as I move a long. I am going to run the stock twins at first. This is my first Toyota swap I have done so I am looking forward to the challenge. I will be fabricating all of the intercooler plumbing, downpipe, and exhaust. Hopefully I will have my dyno results posted within 2 weeks. Does Anyone have a guess on how much power can be made safely running the stock injectors. Ive heard between 3 and 500hp. If anyone has any thoughts on this please chime in. Thanks!!

Parts List:
2jz-gte engine
Act extreme Clutch kit
AEM EMS series 2 Engine Management
5 bar map
aem boost control selenoid
Aem Ait
Tial blow off valve
Aeromotive fuel pump
Aem serial 19 channel data-stream gauge
Aem Wideband
Vibrant intercooler
Hks Muffler

Never posted pics so hopefully this works...

Good luck with the build man. I am doing this in about 4-5 weeks. Please post some pictures of the progress along the way.. Now, where did you get the 2JZGTE and would you buy from them again?

Ana trade in Baltimore, There right up the street from me. It was only 1800, some solenoids are missing, the wiring for the ignitor is gone. Ecu plug is smashed. But it was cheap so I was not that worried about it. The ignitor connectors were only 16 buxs from toyota. Weve bought a lot of Honda motors from them and never had any problems warranty wise.

Does that company ship?

It was 1800 for just the engine, do they sell harness, trans(6spd), ecu with it...
