Exposed's 1jz Build

Recommended Posts

haven't posted in awhile, works been a bit to busy. Found my passenger outer tie rod needed some replacing so I snagged myself some t3 goodies. Will update this a bit more tonight with some more progress pictures.

Been slowing fixing up the interior of the car. Grabbed myself a pair of skillard door cards and they fit great, I didn't end up using the supplied nuts just put some aluminum rivnuts instead which seem to be holding up fairly well. I finally got around to laying some carpet which was purchased from MSA and it seems to be good quality and I redid the headliner in some vinyl.

On another note anyone know the color code for the 1jz valve covers? Cannot seem to find anything online and I cant use my valve covers to paint match because I redid them in black...

Started removing my twins this past weekend, word of advice for anyone looking at removing them.

Take both stock turbos off at the same time. I found the best way to do it was by removing the nuts circled in blue, once you have those nuts off remove the stock turbos and you can remove the nuts circled in red. (4th blue circle nearest to the rad should be red not blue)

just to double check, the hose circled in the picture below can be blocked off. and where do people normally run the hose from the water pump (second picture)?

I did the same thing u did. In the process of getting it welded shut!

 

Good job on headliner. I am scared of doing it myself...lol Is it pretty easy?

Very easy, I've seen them done two ways but not sure if either way is the "proper way". I just laid some thick Dynamat and used adhesive to get the vinyl to stick then stuck it to the roof.

 

this little guy came in the other day. Just waiting on a couple fitting and gaskets from driftmotion now then will start to assemble.

That's the turbo I wanted to go with (or EFR8374). Couldn't pass up the S364sxe deal, but it's going to be a laggy bastard.

 

I think both of you are insane lol. I've got massive traction problems and problems hitting too much boost with my S257, can't imagine with your S300 frames.

Wider tires and an LSD REALLY REALLY REALLY Help.

 

255/40R17 Firestone Oval firehawks (summer)

Mfactory LSD

 

Makes a big big difference!

You got 60mm more tire width than me on much better compounds. I'm afraid adding that much more traction is just asking for trouble from the axles or the stub axles. Basically using the smaller wheels as blow off valves for the torque and power.

 

Both Exposed and Geno are running 2.5L blocks though right? I guess with the smaller displacement and bigger hotside your turbo would come online much later.

yup I have a 2.5L block, from what I was looking at I think it'll come on in the mid rpms. Could be wrong though first time really looking at anything like this so it was almost like learning a new language :mellow:

 

did anyone have to modify the aluminum neck right below the thermostat? no matter what I did the manifold constantly bumped into it. I ended up just cutting it off so I'll have to reweld 45 or something similar onto it.

Yeah, 2.5L here, but I have VVTI and a head that should still flow well enough for trips into 8500-9000rpm territory. Should produce a decent power band, and will be fun even off boost compared to the stock motor.
