Default gs300, 2jz-gte important swap details and questions

I tried searching, but just found a bunch of opinions about getting the swap. Im getting a 1st gen aristo clip to put into my 2nd gen gs300. Im keeping the 4 speed auto for now, as this isnt my actual drift car. I also already have a deposit down on my clip, so no turbo kit. I cant find any details on the actual swap. Anybody have a writeup or something useful?

as far as I know, we have to do a lot of wiring and Im not 100% on what driveshaft to use. any other little things i wouldnt expect to convert besides heater core lines? otherwise seems straight forward. but still, i need exact answers so i have eveything needed with no surprises when i actually go to do the swap. wiring diagrams would be appreciated too...

Thanks guys

I'm putting in my TRD diff in tues.

Let's see who can blow smoke first

PS: you upgrade the rear sways? That'll help step out nicely too

lol, im blowin some smoke right now... now remove that ****! my rear sway is going in the trashcan! mine is just unhooked right now, just not bolted in, and clunking around.. sway bars are for suspension tuning, not sliding. i have my own theory on rear sways if you really want to know.. i could try and explain, but its a drifting thing... otherwise, have fun spinning out.. haha



where did you pick up the TRD diff and how much?
