  1. 1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    Those were actually the included bolts with the spacer. They were the right length so I went with them out of convenience more than anything.
  2. 1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    Spent more time working on the TB conversion. I noticed the holes in the spacers were .25" in diameter, which is the size you want when installing a M6x1.0 helicoil. So I went that route instead of drilling everything out to M8 not sizes. It worked perfectly.
  3. 1j-vvti/Ar-5 Build

    I'm planning a cell for my car as well, and my research echo's jester's, and that having it in the car is not ideal. Just filling it will cause the interior to smell like fuel for a bit, which isn't fun either. I want to do a cell that's more rectangular with an angled filler neck towards the right side. This would let one plumb it to the factory filler location.

    Got my valve covers back, and went and installed the IGN-1A's and brackets. The bracket needs 3mm thick spacers to allow coils to clear the valve covers.
  5. 1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    My valve covers are finally ready for pickup, just need to leave work early enough and for retarded drivers in Denver not to crash and cause traffic problems to get them. Throttle conversion to 350Z DBW system is under way. Hindsight, should have rotated the spacer 90 degrees and I could have been done with just one spacer. Sadly I'm dumb and have to buy a second one now for the TB to fit. Radiator arrived. It's a Griffin 26x19 rad part number 1-55222. It is a snug fit. The plan is to weld up a swirl pot into the upper rad neck and then plan the upper and lower hoses to complete the cooling system plumbing. Then I'll work on the fan shroud.
  6. 2JZ engine build question

    Here's how I'm getting around the whole throttle conversion deal. Got a used throttle body spacer for a 350Z, welded up to the stock manifold. I'll get another one to get the TB to clear the manifold. 350Z TB's are 70mm so it's a small size upgrade over stock as well. My infinity 6 ecu will handle the dbw and let's me eliminate the iacv, which when sold paid for the TB and oem gas pedal.

    Just a heads up on the drift motion ac/ps delete kit, you'll likely want to get a belt one size shorter. Here's my motor with the belt the kit comes with and you can see the tensioner is almost maxed out. In fact it's on the mark that indicates a belt replacement is required.

    The other option is T56/TR6060 if you're running a rear end with a taller (4.1 or greater) gear. The cost is about equal to the CD009.
  9. 2JZ engine build question

    If you're using the R200 from a 280Z the ratio is the same as the 350Z. Now that you can just run an adapter plate and J1/J2 auto bell housing on the CD009 it's definitely the way forward instead of the R154.
  10. 2JZ engine build question

    If I were to go GE I'd just get an aftermarket intake manifold and exhaust manifold, then spend money on forged pistons and rods. The resulting engine would be more than capable. As someone who's been down the path of swapping 2JZ heads, it's not worth it. Go for the whole engine.

    There's also protection you can add to the wiring. Checkout http://www.designengineering.com/products.asp They've got wire looms that provide thermal protection.

    I'm on the fence about using a blanket. The good ones (PTP Lava Blanket) cost almost as much as ceramic coating would, which would do the same thing. Both of which cost a tremendous amount more than a simple heat shield would as well.

    It was a really snug fit. I don't see it going into a 240Z without some serious work.

    Yeah, I went from having access to a 4500sq ft. hangar to a two car garage. Space suddenly became a premium. If you ever decide to do a full rewire, eBay is the way to go for the wire. Mine was a gov liquidation and came out to $38 after shipping.
  15. 1.2JZ into a 280Z build.

    Yeah, the manifold selection on the 2JZ head is a lot nicer than the 1JZ's. It's a Greddy manifold from their T88 turbo kit. I figure even if the turbo is a laggy beast, the car will still be fun out of boost compared to the original L28. The higher compression ratio and VVTI should keep the engine from being completely boring at lower rpm.
