It could just be me, but as far to my knowledge, the oil pan is fine, and you dont need a different cross member?
As long as you use 1jz specific motor, and tranny mounts (sc300 or soarer) and a driveshaft (custom one, soarer, or sc300) than everything tends to bolt in really nicely.
Except for the wiring mess.

^^ you don't say..

james n said in his forumla.

I've been getting some PM from member who is interest in doing this swap. So i'm about to list all the parts from the top of my head that I've done in conversion.


1)2JZ-GTE Engine and Tranny auto.
2) Lextreme TC because I want to have more torque plus I was told that it would help my tranny hold extra HP once I go single.
3) I bought new wiring harness since I don't like old wires. You can use your old harness if its in good condition. Also my motor was ARISTO so I have to get supra harness and ECU.
3) I've change oil pan becuase the Aristo motor is front sump. You need rear sump from the SUPRA. If you can get a hold of a Supra motor then you dont need to change oil pan.
4) YOU NEED TO CHANGE ENGINE MOUNT AND MOUNT BRACKECT TO SC300 one. That would bolt right up.
5) Relocate your Power Stearing tank.
6) You dont have traction control no more.
7) Get down pipe and recommend to change exhuast too
8) Get SC300 coolant reserve tank
9) Drive shaft bolt right up to the auto tranny.
10) MSD Tach adapter for your Tach but its not acurate
11) Your Tempt guage won't work properly get a Resistor for it.
12) Upgrade to Walbro fuel pump
13) Redo timing belt water pump, cam seals, crank seals, and rear main seals
14) Check for bad pulleys and change them too
This is pretty much it if you want you stock conversion and that is all I can think of.

From experience with both motors in an SC, go for the 1JZ. It's cheaper and you have the awesome RPM band. I don't see why a lot of people aren't doing 1JZ swaps. I like the motor much more than the 2JZ. I'm considering putting a GE block with GTE pistons on my 1JZ head to have an awesome motor...idk we shall see.

2jz is better. It holds more power and the parts can be found locally rather than hunting eBay for 1jz parts. Also a na-t 2jz can hold alot of power I tuned right. Would you spend 2k for a 1jz or about $1500 for a na-t with turbo parts?

well it's been a while. been working 1st shift lately(i hate 1st shift). and haven't had the time to do anything really but **** and sleep aside from that.

and sadly because of a leaky seal and me being too busy to hear the gears go. the tranny on the wagon took a dump. so instead of dropping $500.00 coin(provided i could find a tranny). i sent my baby to the great scrapyard in the (ground) sky.







it was a sad day, but they gave me a cool $530.00 for that wag. but on with the show...

so the weekend before the last, me and one of my gals took a trip to arkansas. there was this fellow who had a w58 tranny from a sc300 with 40k miles on it. He wanted to unload it for $350.00. But with gas and all he agreed on $200.00 picked up. **** YEAH. But Months passed and didn't get the time untill that weekend to trek down and finally get it..














so iam going to finish this swap this summer so stay tuned. decided on finally going 1j.

SO DELIVERY DAY. And here it is.








took the wrapping off and viola. Clean as ****.The guy that i brought this from said it was from a toyota chaser. But the invoice said a supra(mk3) Whos telling the truth?? will tind out later. time to check it out.


















I must say i was very,very,very impressed at the quality and how ****ing clean this engine is.. wow, so far best 1105 i spent. The rb was clean but had oxidation from the sea salt. Meaning it sat on the dock for a bit.

Not this engine. i was irked that they didn't drain the tranny. The engine still had oil in the pan. It looked dark. Didn't drain it yet though.


had my good pal- al help me out. with his armada.(lots of nissan sausage here).

Since i have 2 storages. I had to move stuff. so this was the time to do so seeing i have no wagon now, and no truck. so going from one unit to the other with more space to prep these engines..

i plan on scrapping the head on the 2jzge. and stripping the block bare. hot tanking/cleaning it and putting it on a stand till i decide on a 1.5jz swap if any.

But lucily i need the ac condensor off the ge motor since my gte one didn't come with one(seems to be the only part missing).

so we took
-cherry picker
-1jzgte motorset
-2jzge block
-w58 tranny

strapped them down and was on our way.







After some lugging and tugging to get this **** up 2 small steps finally got everything situated..







And now for the star of the show.












the effing engine looks immaculate. And not some shop spraying some armor-all on parts to make them shine. All the components look brand new. Which means either i lucked out and got a rebuilt motor. Or this **** has less than 10k on it..






even the timing belt looks ****..

the only extra piece the sert came with..








effing offical








all the pipes look freaking brand new. and even the head looks new.
