I was planning on doing an ea-eb turbo manual falcon for this project but since i have a cressida lying around i thought i might see how far i can get with it for $1300

The car in question is the same one i bought about 2 years back. Its a silver mx83. Its a fairly tidy shell, has a few dents and faded passenger side front and rear guard tops. I bought the car with the engine half out due to BHG so i also have a few 7m bits and bobs, injectors, afm etc. Its been sitting in my back yard since the new business and extra kid knocked the wind out of me with it.

Although i paid more for it looking around at todays ebay / boostcruising price index i am thinking you could get something in a similar engineless state for about $400. The car is a grande so its extra heavy but has an LSD already. It also has an a340 in it and a tailshaft and a good stock radiator.

Engine:- I have 2 spare 2jzge engines, the first one cost me a carton of beer but has since had its crank shaft donated to the ke20, the second was part of a $500 deal i bought off a member containing a 1jzgte, a 2jz full gasket kit and acl race series bearings. I am of the opinion that the ge engine was a $100 component of this price based on previous ge engine purchases and its the engine i will use for this project. I am still yet to have a good look at the engine though.

Misc:- Since this used to be a project i had some parts collected already. Sump / flex plate and bellhousing was from JZK25 from memory think slipped him $100 back then. The car already has a 400x300 cooler in it but i dont think i can afford this within the budget so will take it out.

I also have an ebay t4 manifold for it that i paid $189 for and they are still available on ebay for that price today. The inlet manifold i built back when this car was a project at $0 cost to myself, i am however considering using a factory manifold and tb position if the intercooler is not within my budget.

Here is a picture of how it sat when the project ran aground, it now has no engine and the turbo on it in the picture is not within the budget so it goes.

$1300-$789

$511 to put it together and make it run 13s hahahaha

Plans :-

I want to try and get the 2jzge running using the 7mge distributor, injectors and afm, the afm is a restrictive POS but dont really have a choice. I plan to do the usual free tricks to the a340 to get it to shift quickly, should be ok for this project. Convertor will be stock. Hopefully i still have some stock exhaust manifolds for the ge as i plan to get it running and registed in an NA state.

If i can find a $100-$200 internally gated turbo this should leave me enough money to buy a cheap arse FPR, a 2nd hand fuel pump, some pressure switches etc. I want to make up or re-use some kind of a tank for an engine bay mounted methanol tank. I will use 2-3 2jzge injectors plumbed into the intake pipe to provide the additional fuel and cooling required.

This jaycar kit http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=KC5382&keywords=fuel&form=KEYWORD is cheap and combined with a few pressure switches should let me drive up to 3 injectors in stages.

Even though i own an exhaust shop i will use scrap material from the bin out the back just like anyone else can for the exhaust and inlet pipe work.

Probably should of started with a cheaper / lighter car but end result is car is out of my back yard and i gain another cheap thrasher with AC.

I bought one of these manifolds directly from ssautochrome for $83 USD delivered (around a year ago) - can provide receipt to legitimise the purchase price.

So if your happy with running with that kind price - Just found you another $100.

Slight hijack. Is the manifold any good and what are the approximate dimensions? Might be useful for a future incarnation on the free30 :)

Thats very similar to the one i got but seems to have more bracing + gate pipe is different, quality looks ok on the one i have, had to cut the gate pipe off to fit in a cressida

Had a quick look over the engine and all is well. Whilst looking over other bits and pieces i seem to have misplaced the 7m AFM, most probably threw it in disgust so will need to find one.

I have sourced a pair of gtr skyline turbos that a mate bought when i did that turbo mini, he got 2 for $200 and said i can have the pair for $150. Just need to work out if they will flow enough for what i need.

OKE020
27-12-10, 11:22 AM
Thinking the higher 2jzge comp plus little turbos should get the 60's it will need to go 13s with < 110mph, boost will have to stay below 16psi anyway on the ghetto fueling setup i have planned :)

Atleast if i make up manifolding, dumps and shit then there is a heap of gtr bolt on shit i can go to later.

I have an aristo ecu / map sensor / ignitor / injectors i can use on this, wiring it into where the 7m ecu goes will be time consuming but may give the best result. I know i can trigger it using the na 2jzge cas / distributor, i can maybe weld the gte injector rail to the ge manifold runners and use the gte injectors. so the ecu will handle boost ok, question is can i run all the ignitor outputs to one coil and still use the distributor? individual coils might be to costly once i have worked out a price for the aristo ecu and shit.

There is going to be alot of hours in this haha.

Sweet project Scotty :)

Those manifolds work OK but I know Al has stopped using them due to slag inside blowing turbos. I have heard of a few other failures because of this. The one we fitted to a mates Aristo was die ground inside (and the flange plate too as it was out a bit) plus I dragged a tight bunch of rags through it on wire like 5 times in the hope of getting any shit out. He never had problems.

I recommend the twin entry style ebay mani as used on my R31. The reason is all the welds a viewable and grindable in that mani where the pictured single entry mani they are not. They cost the same at the time if you can still find one. You will prob be OK with the single just pay extra attention to trying to clean it out. Its just very difficult to do since you cant get to all the welds.

I paid a lot less than this eGay add. Think it was more like $250? But for this challenge the $88 one is obviously the go. Or do what Al done for the Fre30

What problems do you forsee dale? i dont think coil charge time will be an issue at the rpm it will see, the coil really should not see any more activity than it normally would, it will still have an ign+ just the ground will come from a different ignitor output 6 times per 720 degrees of engine rotation. I cant even see rotor button phasing being an issue.

It will eat at me now until i can try it, unfortunately i have to get the supra engine rebuilt and back in the car before i can even make a start.

Compression ratio is the issue on this thing, 2jzge is over 10:1, head gaskets and shit not going to fit in budget. E85 might be the solution providing i can figure a way of adding the correct amount of fuel cheaply. The clock is ticking also, i cant start this until the supra gets its fat arse out of the shop.

18-01-11, 09:59 PM

That would be perfect I reckon. Fuel pumps would be easy. Just add 2 stock ones from a soarer/aristo/supra or something. Not sure about injectors though. Phil got some 550s for $200. They would be good for 11s even with E85.

Next week :), the AC stopped working in the supra so i had to sort that this week, looks as though the factory ecu finally got the shits with its lack of responsibilty and quit, turns out the ac control panel tells the ecu when it wants some compressor action and the ecu decides whether its worthy or not. Simple case of cutting and joining ecu pins 23 & 34 from memory.

Got all the bits sitting at work for the cressida, it will be a mad rush but i still think its possible.

Made some progress on this

engine is in although the convertor seemed to pull forward a long way to bolt up to the flex plate, apparently the 1jz flex plate, 2jz bellhousing, 7m convertor route is the done thing, will have to wait and see.

AC pump top plate changed to the 7m version and AC hooked up, powersteer pump on, oil press sender tee'd for oil supply to turbo. Ebay mani cut and shut to fit turbo around the dizzy, still have to do wastegate stuff.

Got some 'hi flowed' vn injectors (toyota lexcen if anyone asks), got them flow tested when i picked them up and they are 580ish cc at 40psi and high impedance, should work ok with te aristo ecu.

Metric shit load of stuff still to do. Pulled some looms out that i had lying around, the closest one i can find is an na supra engine loom, still thinking i will leave the 7mge loom in place and add additionals such as knock sensors, air temp sensor, map sensor etc, then cut and shut the aristo loom at the ecu end. Stuffs me how i am going to get the ecu to control the transmission, many headaches ahead i guess.

Found a starter motor today to, it turns over, its a start atleast :)

Did a bit more today, ran cables to mount the battery in the boot and powered up the car, (had to check the sunroof functioned :)) added additional wiring to the 7mge loom for knock sensors, air temp, map, water temp etc. Pulled the fuel tank and swapped the cressida fuel pump for a supra one.

Have to go backwards a bit with it though, i need to pull the gearbox again, not happy with not having the correct shim behind the flex plate, also want to put another plate on the bolt side aswell. While i have the box out i probably should pull the valve body and stuff about with a few things to get it to shift quicker, clean filter etc.

Exhaust mani is back on so exhaust fab can commence.

I have decided not to skimp on fuel lines and oil feed lines, trans lines etc. I'll have to take my kids in this car so 'll have to pretend i did it the dodgy way for the challenge.

Hopefully tomorrow i can find some injector plugs and an inlet gasket, tap a thread for the air temp sensor and add a few ports for map sensor, brakes etc. Cressida Alternator wiring is on the wrong side, along with the powersteer pump so a few wires and hydraulic lines to sort there yet too.

Lots of work to go, labour cost would be over $1300 already :)

Gearbox back in, much happier with the flex plate, shims and bolts etc, tailshaft in, serpentine belt and tensioner found and installed. Got some vn injector plugs from pick and pull today so can sort the a few hard to reach bits of wiring before bolting the manifold back on permanently.

Came up with an idea to mount the aristo auto speed sensor at the diff flange plate, i should be able to make some tailshaft bolt washers that will protrude enough to trigger the sensor thus alloying the aristo ecu to control the gearbox properly (unless i overlooked something else, who knows).

Not looking forward to the wiring phase at all.

Also need an aristo water temp sensor and 02 sensor. For some reason i have also lost the stock cressida speed sensor so need one of them too.

Been thinking if i cant get around the 180 speed limiter i might half the number of trigger teeth the aristo speed sensor sees and making a manual gearbox controller out of a 6 or so relays.

I've actually spent zero but it would be over $1300 as i didnt skimp on fuel and hydraulic lines.

Cressida ~$400 for a rolling shell, mine is a grande but could be done cheaper with a lower spec
Ebay Mani $189
Ebay Gate $99
China t04 bearing converted freebie (actual value ?? $200-$400?)
NA 2jzGTE $150
Intercooler $105
Supra fuel pump freebie (actual value $50-$100?)
Ebay 2nd hand reg, freebie (actual value $50)
Aristo ECU and various sensors, freebie (actual value $50-$150)
Highflowed VN injectors 590cc $150
Various Silicone $50
So the lowside figure is $1493

Exhaust and cooler piping i have a truck full of enough shit to do it for free, stainless, 3" mufflers etc, all going to the scrappies today. I own an exhaust shop though, so why wouldn't i put something decent on it :)

Whats the time penalty extending to say $2k

11-05-11, 10:06 AM
Who cares mate :D At the end of the day only you and ALLMTR will have a car worth keeping.

I see it as one of the more fun aspects of this challenge. Nothing really matters and therefore no-one should get sandyvag from what any of us do in the comp. Makes a nice change from CAMS/ANDRA.

It's good that you're being honest about it. If you spent $2K the time penalty would be 7-tenths, but if you run quicker than 12.3 you still win at the moment.

But if you spend $1500, it's only a 2-tenths penalty. The less you spend from this point on the better.

Yeah having a car worth keeping/daily driving for $1300 with potential to go fast is a real challenge. I, personally, don't have a problem listing freebies as free. Hell if we went retail or what things are going to cost some random, the 1jz supra, the turbo starlet and $100 registered falcon would all be out. . .

This whole quest has been about getting deals

Deals sure, but I think one of the core starting points of the challenge was assigning some sort of cost to garage stock or freebie parts.

I'm looking forward to seeing this finished whatever the cost. It should be insanely quick. From the SM story perspective I think it'll be good to see at least one car go over budget just purely for reader interest. "Car XYZ went $300 over budget and got penalised 3-tenths but it didn't matter because it ran 12.3 at 114mph." Makes for a good story. :)

Um, why? The quickest car so far is a turbo car, all the quickest cars in Australian Pro-Street seem to be turbo cars. Everyone seems to be under the impression nitrous is easy for some reason. Having played with supercharging, turbocharging and nitrous I can honest say that nitrous has been the biggest headfuck the both times I had a go.

Maybe we should penalise the turbo cars. :rotflol: joking

Thought Id get a few sandy vags with that comment :)

Where did anyone suggest turbos arent allowed? Last time I looked you dont have to refill a turbo with expensive gas before heading back to the track. A turbo is also legal on the street.

Everything thats ran a 13s pass has run nitrous so far. Nitrous is great but Im really looking forward to seeing this thing run, as its much more of a 'legal' street car, which was the whole idea in the first place :)

I wasnt having a go at the other cunts cars, I didnt expect WW3 to break out over that tiny comment. Jesus, even Chuck was originally saying the challenge would be better without nitrous. What I wrote was a direct response to people talking about penalties for breaking the budget because of some proper fuel lines/etc.

This car is still very much in the spirit of things IMO, thats all I meant. Grumpy cunts are just gonna have a swing no matter what.

Compression ratio is the issue on this thing, 2jzge is over 10:1, head gaskets and shit not going to fit in budget. E85 might be the solution providing i can figure a way of adding the correct amount of fuel cheaply. The clock is ticking also, i cant start this until the supra gets its fat arse out of the shop.

would not stress about that. Seen plenty of na 2jz bottom ends make big power much more than you are aiming for and just get thrashed on pump fuel

Ran this on a dyno today. Fuel pump could not keep up over 13psi still was quite impressed how easily the na 2jz makes power. 382rwhp at 13psi. Did a pull on 15psi and it had 399 by 5000 rpm but was getting way to lean. Engine noses over as it approaches 7000 so set the limiter there.

Hopefully enough to go a 12. Keen to change fuel pump injectors and run e85

$240 for powersteer, transmission and fuel lines (could of dodged it but burns hurt)
$150 for injectors
$400 for valve body (could of run without this but i'd be changing the gearbox next week and i am lazy)
$298 for lowered coils (this was for the chicks)

Put another 1:30am finish in on this last night in an effort to make it to willowbank tonight.

Installed twin intank Deatsch Werks pumps, apparently e85 friendly so all good for fuel change when i can afford some 1d1000s.

Made WOT switch and configured the nitrous system. Still awaiting the materials to make a supply line today and yet to mount the bottle.

Linelock system wired and plumbed but awaiting the solenoid.

ET radials hopefully are here today and need to fit them on stock grande wheels, along with new 175 front tyres.

The pumps have made it run stupid rich, had to pull the reg down 10psi to get it back to where it was before. Struggled for awhile to get AFRs back in the high 10s, low 11s, i am not real confident on how accurate the AEM wide band is so i am going to try and run the AFRs under boost in the high 10s for safety. Plugs show the slightest signs of detonation, they are only 6 heat range so going to change to shrouded electrode 8s to try and keep the temp down + nulon pro strength. Last night i had 16psi in it with no audible detonation.

This is going to be a hell of a thing! Are you going to pull weight out of it to run it on the strip?

OKE020
25-05-11, 11:32 AM
Nah full weight still, pulled the towbar off to get the tank out so left that off. I am not sure how it will go tonight, the tune is a bit ghetto, with a bit of luck i should get quite a few runs in being origin night and all. If so i can start safe and sneak up on it instead of going all or nothing. Best case scenario if everything plays the game i might even do a full nitrous pass haha. Hopefully there is a sober tilt tray driver somewhere :)

You're not asking the right questions, because the obvious answer it to go a 100 shot. :)


12.1 is freaking awesome. Well done, that 11-sec pass isn't far away.

Pretty awesome all round. 11s and 120mph.

just having a look through some of my old time slips and i ran 11.395 at 120mph with around 430rwhp full weight cressida with a 1.78 60 foot so you need a convertor now and you'll be lots fast, also ran 11.00 at 123mph with 1.626 60 foot and around 450rwhp. thats also about where the standard box (with mv valvebody) was its happiest as soon as i went more started to slip over time.

Fuck Yeah Scott well done!
MPH is very much at the 11.20 mark as you already know.
So with a converter you will kill the 60' and drop a shit load of time.
Really good to see the hard work pay off.

25-05-11, 10:50 PM
Sorry about the brief updates i cant drive and update on iphone real good, fingers are to fat haha

Dad and I drove to the track and home again on radials, it now drives nicely with the grande wheels, no scrubbing or vibration from wheel spacers.

7 runs, each run quicker ranging from 12.6 down to 11.98. Best 60 was 1.99, it flares to 2600rpm on the footbrake / handbrake, lunges forward then bogs, the 50 shot was then attempting to drag its fat arse back up to 4000 to get some turbo speed happening but it was all to slow, still dropped 5 tenths in the 60 since last meeting.

Budget wise it would be a tad over 2k now with the two fuel pumps and the nitrous bits and bobs.

Gearbox is holding up fine, the LSD is doing the old 1-2-1 trick so will have to be careful with it.

Uncle and Jim i got nothing on you guys, i'm over twice your budget.

Last pass had 20psi in it and it felt weird down the bottom so i backed off, still went 119mph and 12.00, on the way home with the helmet off (easier to hear) its definately not detonation, might be valve spring related, or maybe the 7m coil is not keeping up.

Whats your plans converter wise?

OKE020
25-05-11, 11:08 PM
Thinking i might just shop around for something secondhand maybe, needs something just over 4000rpm.

I also want to go id1000s, head studs and caltex eflex now. Definately think 10s for < 5k, maybe even 4k

ProVK
25-05-11, 11:16 PM
It will be 10's for 5k then before you know it it will be 9's for $9k

LSD is an easy fix, search on toymods i bought a spring for the centre of the lsd for $40 that gives it heaps better pressure and also packed the clutches in proper order and is nearly a locker now can feel it grabbing the clutches when turning into car parks, but is fine for normal driving.

Is there an external link to this thing without having to pay for Toymods membership? And how long so the clutched last before one wheeling again?

no external link sorry clutches will last pretty much for ever after you put the spring in, cressida lsd's are set up really soft for the grampas that drive them they are the same lsd as a supra just with a softer spring and clutches packed in a different order. mine makes around 600rwhp and i run et streets and has never ever come close to one wheeling
