    The oceanliner - 2jzgte sleeper

    Been reading the forums for a while, though it about time to post my project now that its getting to a stage where it half interesting. The aim of the project is for it to be a daily driver/sleeper (for not wanting police attention), and to be built on a budget.
    So far its had a respray in the the factory colour but using 2k clear over base.
    So far its got/ gana have
    - pedders sports ryder suspension
    - torsen lsd (yet to be fitted)
    - bosch 023 in tank
    - water to air intercooling (yet to be fitted)
    - a 2jz of course
    - trans cooler

    So far ive spliced both looms and got it to the point of starting

    Next up is engine and cross member mounts, etc. Heres a couple of pics:









    The cars weighs well over 1600kg so its wont be a bullet, im hoping for 13s with stock turbos, then upgrade to single when the time comes.
    It should make one hell of a comfy cruiser

    That will be an awsome sleeper Everytime I see a project like that it makes me want to do something similar to my Crown, which is of the same vinatge - but I'll probably never get round to that.

    Yeah, the engine bay is real messy, but cruise control, abs and air con tends to have that effect. The engine fitted like a glove, the turbos sit under the brake booster and the dump exits in the perfect spot. The engine bay is a little short because a v6 came out, so the radiator will have to be moved forward but thats not prob. Real happy with how its working so far.

    Gearbox cross member was made today as well.

    They made a rotary version called the Luce?

    Wow, I never knew that!

    Yeah, in japan they brought out a 13bt and a 2L v6 turbo. But in my opinion its criminal putting a rotary behind a huge car like the nine. After all, its torque that moves things.
    Thanks for the comments, i was aiming for something different, as sleeper was going to be the theme the whole way along (mainly cause im poor and cant afford wheels, and if i could, i rather spend it on the engine).

    The crossmember and engine mounts are both made now, out of 6mm steel, so they should be strong. My intercooler also arrived, its the biggest one i could fit, just have to cut off one of the inlets and weld it back on underneath and it should clear the engine. Heres some pics...

    The crossmember


    The engine mounts



    And the cooler sitting in its approximate place



    Currently working on getting a tailshaft sorted and setting my battery up in the boot, then hopefully it will get its first drive!! I also had to relocate both my a/c condensor and radiator because there was only 5mm clearance between the engine and radiator. The a/c condensor now hides underneath the radiator support and the radiator mounts are reversed and trimmed so tha that the radiator sits flush with the support panel. I guess thats what happens when a V6 comes out and a straight six goes in.

    Cool project. Makes me wish I had the talent to do it.

    What gearbox are you using? Was it hard to fit?

    Hey thanks. The gearbox is just the aristo auto, its gana be shift kitted with an oil cooler, but thats about it. Ive heard theyre pretty strong.

    Looks interesting.. What's the plan with the Turbo-Cooler-TB alignment?

    just as an aside, could you put the front outlet for the cooler straight onto the tb ? using a 90 degree bend. then just move the rearward one up a bit and have a crossover over the rocker cover ? or would that be hampered by bonnet clearance ?

    Yeah, though of that but theres not enough bonnet clearance. How im thinking bout putting it together is the cooler piping from the turbo with head down and cross over at the front between the sump and radiator then come back up under the rear cooler inlet (which will face down), then the front side with enter the throttle body with a 90 bend and two silicon joiners. Thats the best ive ive been able to come up with. Any opinion on this?
    For such a large car engine bay room is shockin, but its still got a hell of a lot more room with the 2jz than with the DOHC V6 in there.

    if you are that screwed for room, that will be a goer.

    Why no FMIC??? Surely that's gotta be the simplest *read cheapest* approach?

    Paint it black and sneak it behind the factory bar, no-one would ever know.

    Seems like the W-A is a whole lot of headache and compromise.

    Should be able to use the factory aristo piping to tuck it down neatly between the engine and Radiator.

    Yeah, i looked pretty well into the FMIC but between the lights is extremely narrow and sticking one underneath behind the pumper would not be large enough IMO as the supports are in the way.
    The w-a is super expensive, around 3-4x what a FMIC would cost after factoring in the custom heat exchanger and pump, but its something different and i dont think its really been explored that much to be honest and wanted to give it a go.
    My brother is using the same cooler on his 5L gt42 HR holden so were sorta trying it out at the same time.

    I think theres a reason why water to air intercoolers don't get explored much. The radiator system for them really needs to flow quite a bit for them to work effectively.

    How big a cooler do you think you will need? a 400x300x100 BnP will flow more then you'll ever make on STD turbo's and cope with moderate singles.

    Just wondering if anyone has a spare aristo engine mount laying around. My front cut came with a badly split one, so i need another one before i can put the crossmember back in. Cheers.

    Updates so far is just that ive chopped the traction control out of my throttle body because it looked stupidly big and was fouling with my intercooler.

    Been a while since i updated. The car was going with the standard turbos, but had problems with the head, which put a huge slow to the progress. While the head was off it had a mild port job and reconditioned and put back on with ARP studs. And of course, putting the standard turbos back on was way too much trouble, so i got a cheap second hand gt35 to go on. So as the car stands its all back together, just waiting for the old man to join the cooler piping and exhaust back up (as i now live 850km away). Heres a couple of progress pics.
