    asylum you got it!
    Mr Jones, im getting to that!
    yojimbo, thanks! what did you come in?

    This is how it all started! after seeing a friends new toy when he bought his 1g ra23 i knew i had to have one! and not being able to afford a finished car the hunt was on to find a cheep stocker or a shell we came across this roling shell!







    so after talking to the girlfriend and the rents, my mind was made up and i had to have it.







    i was informed the car was alredy equiped with the pug/rona/lux brake upgrade, so the next step would be to talk to the engineer and see what i would and wouldnt be able to do and still be able to rego the car in ACT with an engine transplant, after much consideration i desided to go with the bigger 1JZ-GTE!!! which ment i had to do a rack and pinion conversion for the steering and the car also needed to have a disk brake and lds diff.

    so after a bit of serching and mesuring i desided on the KE70 x-member with its rack and pinion so a wreck was bought for the right price and work started stripping it.





    probably all the pix i can post in one go if this is anything like toymods,

    Cheers, Glenn.

    i have been shown a little and thats why i joined hahaha

    couldnt find any photoes of the modded x member but basicaly using the stock member to make a jig i shortenend the ke70 one and boxed the ends with some angle then brought the lca's in about 7mm a side from memory to try and bring the track width back closer to original ta23 track, next step was to find some phone numbers for jap wreckers for a sutable engine/box and after a few calls decided on a jzz30 auto halfcut without traction controle.
    quick trip to ichiban sydney later and i had my engine and box!





    all i wanted to do was strip the halfcut when i got home but it rained for about a week straight! first opertunity i got i was straight into it!






    quick food stop, gotta keep up your energy







    should be enough for one night dont worry there is fucking HEAPS to catch up on befor i got to do the first SKID!

    anyway back to what i have done so far
    started stripping the engine and its loom, stupid intake makes it hard to remove the factory loom!



    all stripped! well as far as i was keen to at the time (was only first year auto elec)




    now for the sump, with a quick mock fit it was clear that the soarer factory sump would need massive mods, or to be swaped to a front sump version from a chaser or something of the likes? quick look on toymods and a few postes later 1jrolla came to my rescue with the goods.


    original sump.




    quick flick of the engine stand and some tools, BAM!




    again i cant find any pictures of the new sump installed but if i find them ill put them up, so with the new sump installed and x-member in it was time for another engine box test fit.



    all looking sweet i was happy to start making it stay there, using the soarer engine side mounts and the rubber part of the mounts the angle was very close to the angle of the x-member so after drilling some holes in the member i sat the engine back in and holding the gearbox up with a jack i started on the gearbag mounts.

    also after finding out that we had a tig at work and everyone was two retarded to use it i signed myself up for a tig course at cit and started to make things stick together and i really wasnt very good at first but i have improved, my first project with the welder after my course was a surge tank for the celica and some mounts for my fuel pumps.





    i was fairly happy with it at the time but looking back on it now it was a POS haha

    cheers, Glenn.

    next was to make some fuel lines as i didnt have any with the car and they would have needed to be bigger anyway (3/8).





    this was a a pain in the ASS i had a bender but it was harder to use than my hands and knees, so i ended up doing it buy hand... and knee.

    next was to look at the intake







    always wanted to do a single turbo setup before i had even bought the halfcut so the next thing to reserch was turbos popular for the 1j, desided on the garrett GT3582r and thanks to my new found tig abilitys i was keen to do a bit more welding, quick Egay "buy in now" later and a call to GCG with my debit card in hand and i was the proud new owner of a single turbo setup!



    and in true ebay style the manifold didnt even bolt to the head! lol the gap between the front 3 and rear 3 runners was to small so i had to diegrind all the stud holes into an oval shape just to make it fit!!! lol but what can you expect for like $300 delivered haha will probably crack to



    next problem was the wastegate, as it was pointed straight at the steering shaft.





    love this photo, looks so tough!



    post more soon, keep the drool flowing :P

    Cheers, Glenn.

    after lots of cutting with the tinsnips and grinder and tacking then not being happy grinding the tacks off and going again i was finaly happy and welded it all up,









    setting up the oil and coolant lines, stupid comp housing was so big i couldnt do the fittings up so it had to come off, and as for the stupid U turn on the top hose that has been cut off and the holes welded up

    inbetween all of this i also did the timing belt kit, water pump, cam seals, crank seal, rear main and im shore i forgot something.

    more soon, Glenn.

    next step was cooling engine and turbo but ill start with engine.

    rad from JAR




    after a quick trial fit the mounts wernt going to work for my application in its supplyed state so a quick hit with the air grinder a cutting disk, hacksaw and a hole saw later a few miner mods where made





    with the fans and the new mounts.



    and hitting the water pump!



    easy fixed tho.



    all fixed.





    bottom hose, part number 21503-55s00 dont know what brand was just in a pile of hoses at work so if anyone knows let me know so i wkow what to replace it with, cheers

    this is the only picture i can find of my alt setup, i used a bosch falcon / magna rebuildable jobby that i snaveled off work and put all new gear into it an mounted it on the bottom a/c comp mount by drilling the hole out to the right size for the alt through bolt (the a/c mount was the perfect size between the alt legs because it has a dowel to make for a tight fit) and bending up a bracket from the p/s mount to the top of the alt just out of 4mm steel, engine and alt both had threads so his made it easy to make this bracket, then because of the belts new running track i had to change the tensioner pully from flat to ribbed (5pk) with the right offset, quick walk to autopro "i live nice and close" a falcon idler was found and works perfetly!



    more on the intercooler side soon, hope everyone is liking this build so far its my first so i think im doing OK :S

    cheers, Glenn.
