Right now the plan is to use the stock throttle body with an adapter to keep the ccs. If that doesnt fit I will have to figure something else out. I am open to suggestions if you have any.

It is a custom made equal length turbo manifold.

It has been a while since the last time I posted. Murphy's Law has been trying to hit me up. At any rate I got the valve covers powered coated but they were done the wrong color. Red is not the color of the day. So they will be going back. We got the motor reassembled. I must say the custom alternator does look good on there. I am currently working on rust removal and painting of some odds and ends on the motor (pulleys, bolts, brackets). While working on the motor on the stand we found that the VVTi cam needed to be rebuilt. So that is out and hopefully will be back today. The new radiator and condenser went in. Enginne bay is clean and the motor is in. We still have quite a bit left to do but it is looking good so far. Pictures will be coming soon.

As promised. Here are the pictures for those who are interested.
Bottom end is all put together






Valve covers are done but they are the wrong color. They were supposed to be a dark copper but they got done red with orange flake. They are going back.





Engine walk around. Not my turbo. It was just for test fitting.








For those of you who are curious what the OEM AC condenser looks like after 170,000+ miles here you go.

and the new one original Denso part.

Out with the old, in with the new.


New Mishimoto Radiator


Motor in the car








That's it for now.

Thanks for the encouragement. This has been a long time. It is coming along much slower than I wanted but it is coming.

I would suggest doing an upgraded timing tensioner to avoid a failure on the part.

Induction Performance 2JZ Billet Timing Tensioner | Induction Performance

something like this ^

I might consider that for the future. I have never heard of that kind of failure before. Interesting.

It happens more often than you think. My old job at SRT would manufacture their own CNC billet version of the 2JZ timing tensioner. We would have customers come in the shop sometimes with either hairline fractures on the tensioner or have engine failure due to lost of timing, because the stock tensioner broke. These cases only seemed to happen with moderate to extensive builds.

From what i can remember the owner of SRT experienced this kind of failure with his own IS300 race car just before a big race probably Import vs Domestic at MIR. Which led to the re-engineering of his own tensioner. After milling out a custom one he never had that problem since. so if i were you i would invest in one now than later.
