what makes it 1.5? it's a 1JZ which is a 2.5L engine, correct? the title has really been screwing with me, please educate me! =)

don't ask me about the election... just ask me who I'd rather go camping with!

If guns kill people... do pens & keyboards misspell words? Yeah, and spoons made Rosie O'Donnell fat and ugly...

Its called a 1.5 jz cause it has a 1jz head with a 2jz bottom end. Its not a full 2jz its a mix of both , hence the name 1.5. This setup is used for various reasons, 1 beign its cheap to build, 2- some say the 1j head flows better than the 2j head, 3 the na 2jz(non vvti) has the same internals as the gte block except oil squirters.

so it's still a 3.0L then? or does the head affect that at all?

Before you go any further.

Clean up the bay, Relocate the battery and relocate your ABS to where your battery is.

Might have to move your ECU box a bit over for the intake.

Other than that. Solid progress.
