So my next project is going to be a jdm supra 2jzgte vvti 6speed in an sc300. I am wondering what the best year of sc I could get to make it the easiest? Ive read that 98 and up are the most compatible with the gte vvti since they came stock with a ge vvti. But they are all auto. I want to use a 97 manual sc.
The plan is to have the custom wiring done by tweak'd or sombody like that. and get a custom driveshaft needed for the swap from drift motion. What else is needed for the swap?
And is there a good standalome ecu option for this setup that would be good to tuning it and not having check engine light? Because ive read alot about ecus out of vvti's that couldnt be used over here for some reason. Ive spent a lot of time searching cl for the answers I need, sorry if this has been already covered.

Do you have emissions testing? If so, go with 95 or lower because you won't require a diagnostic port test (JDM fails instantly). 92-95 is OBD1, 96+ is OBD2
Make sure that the ECU doesn't have the immobilizer (the ECU model that does NOT have it is Model# 89661-3A470), make sure that the engine is rear sump, and if Tweak does your harness you won't have issues with CEL.
