Don't apologize, aside from the coil packs on the valve cover, and the obvious dual cam gears, that engine looks a lot like mine.I'm gonna tap you as a source for info when I get closer to the end of the year. When you google 2jz engine for sale, there are several importers that pop up with pics of engines out of Japanese Lexus models that aren't sold here. If you can tell me what to look for as a starting point,..ill buy one of those engines.
Provided I can adapt that engine to an SBF trans bell.
Can you talk about that?
We used a QuickTime bell for a t56 this car has a t56 in it with an aje k member which makes it very easy to make mounts . We also were able to use a stiffler x member an keep the trans mount in the Stock spot . My one friend had a Toyota Getrag in his reef car and ditched it . Guys have used Chevy trans , they make adapters most turbo 400 some
Of them 4l80 I think . They make converters to work with that stuff . As far as the ford auto I’d be a little lost there.

Engine - this long block was from a soarer originally which is a JDM counter part of a us Lexus sc300 . The JDM got the turbo engine which are originally twins . This year this car got the expensive single turbo manifold but before had the eBay variant like the intake manifold . Chinese and cheap but worked .

If it were me . Spend the extra on a non VVTI engine . Makes life simple they drive just as good . Those coils are IGN1a which is what all the high hp guys are going too . This had LS coils on it before. My buddy said night and day diff from startup to everything on down . Same with the cresssida I posted had stock Toyota coils and he went to these too to aleviate a high rpm breakup issue in 3rd . Now he’s running .028 gap vs the .017 he had to run before to not have blow out .

This was as we were making them. They got welded on each side of course and then re checked to make sure the engine was sitting straight . Dummy Trans was in x member as well and it’s place . You see why the aje makes this easy.

They are cheaper k members but I have used them for BBC , coyotes and This and no issues . My other buddy with the reef car got all his info from me and used the same k as well

Remember they make 4r70 and aod adapter bells to Chevy with converters for that . They make an adapter plate to mount a Chevy trans to this motor with flex plate which is pricey but has everything to use a Chevy converter which is what your ford to gm hybrid converter will be anyway on the snout end is gm . These Toyota guys run them with just the adapter flexplate and bell mount . So i think you’d be golden . Just have to make sure converter spacing is all good

Clearly, I'm not bothered by having to make it fit..are they all front sump? How does that work with the rack?
They have front and rear sump this was a mock up non turbo engine . I clearly remember us still having to slightly modify the pan to clear the rack and he did end up dropping the rack mount in the end of all of it . No issues with it that way. I don’t have the pics of that night when we did all that .

Mike when you opened the throttle blade did you make sure to disable idle advance?
No,..i was just messing around trying to put my mind at ease..ill have to go back down there and reset the stuff sometime today
We'll see if I can remember what you told me..
It's funny though, when I was looking back at all of the earlier posts, trying to find what I had said about my boost control duty percentage, I was actively involved in tuning the thing, and talking like I knew what the phck I was talking about...
What a difference two years makes. :rolleyes:

You gotta admit it Noobz,.....that engine looks eerily similar to mine.
( only I'll bet that shiny polished intake isn't hand made......at least not by the owner)
In a Chinese factory . The owner did cut the end off and turn the throttle body flange much straighter to what you see there and weld it back on because it was legit pointing at the frame rail being for a supra

I do admit it. I am no big fan of foreign motors but you're right and it's not just eerie, it's a modern engine [and] eerily close to what you have.

I anticipate that this trigger will be pulled. My only thoughts are about how much of your current drive-train you think you'll be able to retain with the swap.

Since you don't like the belly button builds, here is an alternative for you:

Ford Boss 6.2 V8

The 6.2 L (379 cu in) V8 is the main variant of the Boss engine. The V8 shares design similarities with the Modular Engine family such as a deep-skirt block with cross-bolted main caps, crankshaft-driven gerotor oil pump, overhead cam valve train arrangement, and bellhousing bolt pattern. In particular, the 6.2 L features a two-valve per cylinder SOHC valve train with roller-rocker shafts and two spark plugs per cylinder, as well as dual-equal variable cam timing. Just as notable is that they use a much wider 4.53 in (115.1 mm) bore spacing (compared to the Modular's 3.937 in (100.0 mm)), allowing for the use of larger bore diameters and valves. The 6.2 L V8 has a bore diameter and stroke of 4.015 in × 3.74 in (102.0 mm × 95.0 mm). It has lightweight aluminum cylinder heads and pistons, but makes use of a cast-iron cylinder block for extra durability since most applications for the engine will be trucks.[2]

This V8 went into production in early 2010 and debuted in the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as a late-availability option. A limited-edition version of the Raptor from Ford Racing called the Raptor XT features a high-output version of the 6.2 L V8 with about 500 hp (370 kW).[3] For the 2011 model year, the 6.2 L V8 was introduced in Ford's Super Duty pickups as a replacement for both the 5.4 L Triton V8 and the 6.8 L Triton V10, and in the F-150 as the premium engine option, though it was not available in all configurations.[2]

For 2017 the 6.2 L V8 in the Super Duty received new tuning and modified camshafts to bump torque to 430 lb⋅ft (583 N⋅m), while power remained 385 hp (287 kW). It was also now mated to Ford's TorqShift G 6 speed transmission; Ford's Live-Drive Power Takeoff (PTO) Provision with Mobile Mode is also optional on 6.2 L equipped trucks.


Applications for the 16-valve SOHC VCT 6.2 L V8 include:
2010 - 2012 F-150 HD Harley-Davidson
2010 - 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor, 411 hp (306 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 434 lb⋅ft (588 N⋅m) @ 4500 rpm
2011 - 2014 Ford F-Series, 411 hp (306 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 434 lb⋅ft (588 N⋅m) @ 4500 rpm
2011–2016 Ford F-Series Super Duty, 385 hp (287 kW) @ 5500 rpm, 405 lb⋅ft (549 N⋅m) @ 4500 rpm
2017–Present Ford F-Series Super Duty, 385 hp (287 kW) @ 5750 rpm, 430 lb⋅ft (583 N⋅m) @ 3800 rpm[4]
2017 Ford E-Series, Cutaway and Stripped Chassis

Sorry for the late response Joe, just getting back to the folks that contributed..

It's both things Joe..bang for the buck, and how it looks when the thing is installed. To me, that is one ugly looking bundle of wires and plastic tubes. It's the same look as a F150 coyote engine, and that was the reason I'm not interested . When you read and look at all of the headache(s) guys have here with spark plug access, on the turbo side of the engine and after having an engine where I can change mine out in 5 minutes w/or ever getting burned, it'll be tough to ever consider a v8 unless it's a stand alone n/a build, and I can make it purdy.

The trans is my only " planned " save, but even that is on the block if the trans that comes with the engine is capable of withstanding ( or can be made to stand) the project power goal of 400/400

Phkin A. I like that the current 6 cylinder edition of the Monster is back to destroying rubber. I like that it didn't oil the phk outta the top of the engine, because we would have 3 weeks of posts of what the next edition of the puke tank entails.

BUT, the Beyonce's husband swap is a great idea. It's a modern, good looking engine that begs for boost. I can't wait to watch the "End of Days" while you hammer the Aussie headed six, then go all Cheap Trick Live at Budokan!

In the meantime, between posts of searching for a 2JZ and that build up, can we see some videos of the poor rear tires being heavily abused???

Well...not today..
20190811_123746.jpg

My bullsht hose system looks like its gonna phck me. I started the engine this morning, smelled antifreeze. And saw fumes rising off of the header..one of those fittings dont like getting hot, and the hose loses its grip on the fitting, and before you know it...its pissing steamy antifreeze on the back side of the header.
Time to make hard lines behind there.

Hey Mike.... It looks like you made up your mind....but what about the ford v10. I havent seen that in anything. Same internals as a 5.4. Then again... I don't think megasquirt can run it. I think MS can only do the viper v10.

That would be cool though.

Could buy it and sell the transmission to recouped some money. I was going to swap one in my convertible but would have to move the radiator to the rear in the trunk. Couldn't find a controller for it. The factory ECU needs some info from the transmission to work properly. I do know ford put it in a new edge mustang test mule. Couldn't imagine how ridiculous it would be with a turbo.

The 2jz is cheap....easy....and common in just about anything. The v10 is at least worthy of you doing a little research.

I have become found of an i6. After being around them everyday in BMWs, and the way the one looks in my car, I'm no longer interested in making anything else fit. Especially considering how clean the jap motor looks fully dressed...I'm completely on board.
I have to sell the jag first,...I'll list it for sale tomorrow. When it sells, the very next thing I'll do is order one of those 2j's from JDM...
Then I gotta decide if I continue to keep the current six in the monster for awhile, or pull and try to sell it too. I just can't see me blowing the thing up because I decided to move on to a different engine.

I’m away a few days and a lot unfolds! At least with a 2jz you won’t have as much one off stuff that can potentially go wrong. Such as the plate on the block, the linked lifters with bolts holding them together, your coolant lines, etc. Glad you are at least enjoying the car a bit. It looks really good in its current form, Mike. The best it’s ever looked in my opinion.
