Transmission and Diff Options for my 2JZ 280Z
solitarysensei posted a topic in Toyota L6 ForumApologies, I included a special character in my last thread title and it corrupted the page. I can’t seem to delete it, sorry! See repost below ———————————————————— Hey all, Hope you’re good. I’ve been browsing the HybridZ forums a bit but I’ve not managed to find anything specific to the swap that I’m doing. I have a LHD 1977 280z and a 2JZ-GTE VVTi and not sure whether to mate with either a T56 Magnum F or a CD009. Please feel free to direct me to a thread which can answer what I’m outlining below! These would be my two options both brand new. Grannas T56 Magnum F kit or the Collins/Autosports/SerialNine CD009 adapter kits.. Gear T-56 F CD009 1st 2.66 3.78 2nd 1.78 2.32 3rd 1.30 1.62 4th 1.00 1.27 5th 0.80 1.00 6th 0.63 0.79 I’m based in West Sussex, UK with a LHD 1977 280Z. Lots of twisty roads and sharp turns round here... Not really too fussed about cruising and fuel economy as this will not be a daily. I’ll be looking to build my Z primarily for spirited driving and to be able to take on track occasionally. I will be doing a single turbo conversion and looking to push around 500-600 bhp max. I have to say I am leaning more towards the CD009 because of parts availability, it is also cheaper too. But will need some work done to fit in the tunnel nicely, so I’ve read. My indecision is when it comes to drivability. I’m really stuck between both CD009 and T56 Magnum F (close ratio version) and what would be better suited to what I want to build the car for based on the conditions above (I guess for the type of roads over here and the tracks we have, shorter gears are better?) I’m also quite unsure on which diff I should go for that will get the most out of whatever transmission I decide on. Do you guys have any thoughts as to what is the best pairing would be for the 2JZ in terms of transmission and diff? Can I stick with the long nose R200? Or do a SN R200 conversion, 8.8 conversion… etc. Just trying to really narrow down those options too. There are a few bits that’s I’ve read about each transmission but I haven’t managed to find technical pros and cons/justifications that is specific to my chassis and swap. I’m not sure how much of that information I can take to crossover with my build so I just would rather ask to make sure. Please let me know if you need any more info from me! Thank you very much.

Hey everyone! I don't know if you know me but my name is Mike Garcia and I am owner/builder of the Overkill Z. Years ago when I was building my car while searching for an engine mount for my S30 I came across John Coffey here on HybridZ. After looking at the other options I instantly felt his was the best designed and strongest option. I bought one and used it in my build. We became friends but missed the opportunity to buy the cross member JIG before his passing. However fait has a funny way of working.... I recently moved to Southern California when I saw the Jig was up for sale down in San Diego. I made the 4 hour round trip the next day and bought the Jig with the sole purpose of making the cross members for the community. I am one guy with a Jig and the resources to REPRODUCE these cross members Just as John designed! These will be MADE TO ORDER and will be low production numbers to insure a QUALITY product. So Just as I came across John you have now come across me. They will come as raw metal for ease of welding with the original instructions. YES these can be bolted in by drilling holes through the rails and cross member. Price $350 a unit plus shipping to your door step. Happy building! These are made for OEM 2jzgte engine mounts. People have used These for 1jzgte,vvti,GE swaps but may of had to swap out mounts. The 4bolt pattern is the same however the mount brackets vary. Message me for orders.

Hello Everyone, I bought a 1971 Datsun 240z, about 2 years ago as my first project car. The more I started to dig into the car, the more I wanted to repair and improve it. Initially I was just planning on getting it running and using it while slowly upgrading and repairing it. I ended up tearing it down to the bare chassis, mounting it on a rotisserie and media blasting it. After I media blasted it, I decided to replace the floors and upgrade the frame rails with baddog frame rails. I sat down and thought about what I wanted the car to be and I came up with a ton of ideas, but ended up narrowing it down into one vision. The vision is this(nicknamed ProjectWhiteNoiseZ): My vision is inspired by modern Nissan Nismo styling, but it will be powered by a 2JZ-GTE with a cd009 transmission. I have gone through every part and media blasted and powder coated it or upgraded it with something better. Doing all of this, inspired my brother to buy a crashed 2008 Mustang GT and the current plan is to complete our cars by August/September '18. I live in Colorado and he lives in Pennsylvania, so I'll be road tripping the 240z 1700miles each way when complete to meet him at a track in Pennsylvania and race. If you're interested to see the work and follow our journey to complete our cars over the next few months, we have a YouTube channel, Facebook, and Instagram where we're documenting our builds. Any comments on suggestions for YouTube video improvements are appreciated. We will answer any questions you have.

1970 TwoJay Z project
superduner posted a topic in S30 Series - 240z, 260z, 280zI've had a few z's in the past and always fixed them up, made them run and look nice and had to eventually sell them due to random reasons. But now, I feel I've landed myself a keeper! Saw an add on Craigslist for a 71 shell and after a long wait period to hear from the seller we finally struck a deal and head out to pick it up in the middle of nowhere. To say the least, upon arrival the car had absolutely NOTHING in it. And by nothing I mean NOTHING. No mechanical, no brake or fuel lines, no interior no hatch, no windows ... heck, the owner had to Wire the suspension and instead of bolts ran steel wires in between holes (spindle, control arms, etc) just to get it in all fours, which made a huge of a difference when it came to load on to flat bed. While almost no bolts were even provided, To my surprise, the owner had a fair amount of the original parts in a small trailer ready to piece together and threw everything in for free!. The original hatch had miraculously somehow flown off when he previously transported the car home and thus far car's still hatch less. The following day while making a list of the missing parts and further inspection I came to realize the car is actually a 7/1970 car! ^O_O^ After settling down for a few days I found out the car was owned by a member here and got some cool pics and info about the cars history. Found that while the car was very rust free it's definitely had its fun and abuse at the track. Regardless, I got the empty shell for a good price and a positive open mind with hopes of giving this girl new life and a new future far far away from either junkyard and or smasher. I'll be posting some pics of my lady soon. For now, for sure I know I'll be running a 2JZ-GTE power plant & 6speed supra Trans with Z31 finned clsd/CV rear end. Pending the sale of my IS300 to fund the project. For now, let the parts search begin!
2JZGE NA-T help
grayson260z posted a topic in Toyota L6 ForumAbout to start a NA-T build on a 2jz I bought from my buddy that came from a GS300. ($400 FTW) My main concern right now is purchasing some ARP studs and a beefy head gasket. But the thing that really keeps me up at night is the HIDEOUS wrap over GE intake manifold. WHY Toyota why?! I've always seen these custom GTE style manifolds that stay to the right instead of wrapping over the valve covers which looks so much better IMO. The main reason I'm considering this is simplifying the IC piping for a NA-T build. Using the stock manifold just makes routing it all over complicated. My biggest draw back is, being new to the JZ game, I'm unsure how to go about re-doing the fuel rail. Any help? Try to go easy on me this is the first engine I've ever bought FreBay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2JZ-GE-FFIM-SUPRA-TURBO-SC300-IS300-INTAKE-MANIFOLD-/291093531929?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43c686cd19#ht_659wt_1074 PS; I'll put some pictures of the engine in later I don't have them on my PC. Only thing the engine needs is a crank which is $35 from pull-a-part
Contemplating a 240z 2jzgte swap (whats the cost?)
FameTPre posted a topic in Toyota L6 ForumHey I have a 1970 datsun 240z and I've been thinking about a 2jz conversion for a while now, due to some recent circumstances I've really started to think about the swap very seriously. I was wondering how much it would cost to get everything I need for the build, wiring harness, mounts, engine, drivetrain, ect. I realize that cost depends on a lot of things but I was hoping to get some estimates, I plan on getting brakes/ suspension/strut braces already so you can subtract that from total cost. Something else I may have to consider is taking it to a shop as i don't have room to work on it where I live and I cant say they would even let me. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks. My estimate: engines $2,500-3,000 350z trans $400-700 engine mounts $300 plug 'n' play wiring harness $799 BC coilovers $1,200 strut braces $240 wilwood stages 3's $2,000 350z trans adapter plate $400 exhaust (?) differential (?) driveshaft (?) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total: $8,990-9,790 no tax... $9,889-10,769 after adding 10% for tax.

Rb26dett VS 2JZGTE VVT-I
grayson260z posted a topic in 6 Cylinder Z ForumsI've narrowed my search for an engine to swap into my '74 Datsun to either a Nissan 2.6l Rb26 or a Toyota 3l 2jzgte. Following will be my reasons for each engine and why I want to swap it. (ALL PRICES ARE AS LISTED ON www.jdmenginedepot.com) RB26DET: 1). keep the tradition going of an inline 6, 2.6l as the stock l26 2). More suppport and kits avaliable on the market 3). Very distinct sound of an RB ...(The link to the RB http://www.jdmenginedepot.com/jdm_engine_details/106/Nissan_RB26DETT_Skyline_R32_GT-R_Engine,_Manual_AWD_Trans,_Harness,_&_ECU_JDM_RB26DETT) 2JZGTE: 1). Significantly cheaper than the Rb26 (http://www.jdmenginedepot.com/jdm_engine_details/208/Toyota_2JZ-GTE_VVTI_Aristo_/_Supra_/_Lexus_GS300_/_Lexus_SC300_Engine,_Automatic_Trans_&_Harness_JDM_2JZGTE) 2). Clearance of the turbochargers and the steering column would'nt be a problem 3). C'mon it's a Toyota! 4). I have access to a lot of information on the JZ platform from my friends THE NEGATIVES OF EACH: RB26 1; would have to source an rb25 tranny so 2; Japan only ever made a few cars with the RB26 and not many if not none of them reached the states so parts would be a PITA and wallet 3; Turbos apparently have a lot of issue clearing the steering column on a US spec 260z (LHD) 2JZ: 1; More fabrication work (not really an issue) 2; Less support in the since of swap kits without them costing $2k+ 3; For some reason I feel like wiring would be a pain (I may be wrong) 4; It would come from the shipper with automatic tranny and that just won't do. So I would then have to find either a W series or save up and find an R154. But shouldnt cost any more than the RB26. And someone might acually want a turbo auto trans from a 2j compared to the S**t box that is the AWD RB tranny. For fuel I suppose I'm just gonna go the beaten path of probably a 12-15 gallon fuel cell and a Walbro 255 As you can see I have a lot more positives on the Toyota side compared to the RB but I want input from people WHO HAVE ACTUALLY DONE EITHER SWAP (or have assissted in it, or that know more than it is a hard swap) Thank you guys! - Grayson
Another slow progress dream car build
grayson260z posted a topic in S30 Series - 240z, 260z, 280zThis will be my first attempt at an official build thread, as well as my first time trying out photobucket to add pictures so stick with me please. (Pic Heavy) First off I am Grayson, a 17 year old from the east coast, you know that place that breeds rusty cars. Last year I explored a dirt road I was always curious about and managed to find this "gem" We managed to pick it up for $800 (having no idea what the hell we were getting into) It was rusty, of course but also came with about 5 boxes full of replacement parts. That picture is the day we got it delivered to our shop and right before I started tearing it apart. WARNING these next pictures may bring back bad memories but the rust is an evil we have all dealt with; http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140226_184531_zpss3j9jemd.jpg.html?sort=3&o=25 http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140226_182926_zpsptongh9l.jpg.html?sort=3&o=26 http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140226_182910_zpsedxlk5oo.jpg.html?sort=3&o=27 http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140226_182900_zpspeqecq7j.jpg.html?sort=3&o=28 Surprisingly the battery tray area was fine The rear hatch area did have some pretty bad places though http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140816_230652_zpsb0rbsdut.jpg.html?sort=3&o=15 Rust aside because we have all seen it, felt it, hell probably tasted it at some point. Me and my dad (who hates this car) got the floor pans replaced along with the rocker panels but I don't really have a good picture of them after they're installed http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140405_222424_zpsg9kol34t.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=1 We did actually manage to get the stock L26 to run after sitting for 5 years I think. Just took a new battery and new fuel line but we had to cut it off due to it spraying fuel on the battery and windshield http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140117_184737_zpsgi3ckpbu.mp4.html?sort=3&o=2 Thats me that says "woahhh what" and then Jared in the blue jacket with the 13 "woahs" and my friend Mitch in the car. Thinking back on it now I seriously should have just got the l26 back in good condition and driven it like that but I'm a young arrogant teenager so f##k society I bought a 2JZ http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140414_194248_zpscodyk27a.jpg.html?sort=3&o=36 I picked it up from Mitch for $400 which I felt was a good deal given the fact he was also going to help me with installing it and the wiring he owns two 1jzgte VVT-I swapped Toyota Cressidas. I started getting into areas where I was unsure about the Datsun so I foolishly sold the oil pan for the JZ thinking I would need a new one anyway. The one I had was the rear-sump from an SC300 that I needed. http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140830_151039_zpsmjmstoll.jpg.html?sort=3&o=28 I sold everything for the oil system for a incredibly stupid/low $170 pic related http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_168456223304030_zpso1sdwvox.jpeg.html?sort=3&o=33 But no big deal I still need to hit up the local pull a part for a crank shaft/ full rotating assembly and now the oilpan Live and learn I guess. I did manage to score the hookup on a turbo charger for $free.50 so I'll eat the cost of the new oilpan. My dad works on TigerCat machines which are equipped with massive Cummins turbodiesel engines which are in turn equipped with Holset turbos http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/1411931033942_zps4y7rnouf.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=2 Pictured are two turbos; left is an HX40w and right is a much smaller HX35 http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-09-27%2016.04.21_zpsebrhzbfm.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0 Since I am going to have the turbo on the passenger side I figured why the hell not have a fender exit (this is still highly under consideration) I still have the L26 in there for now but the white circle is approximately 3.5-4" that I will eventually cut out and run the downpipe through http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140917_202435_zpsiekzgqtk.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=46 http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/20140917_202631_zpswa33quqc.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=47 Our local law enforcement is the complete opposite of strict about exhaust so problems shouldn't really arise there (I hope ) That pretty much covers actual progress so now onto the plans. I'm still looking for fenders in better condition and ran across these two babies http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-10-16%2023.39.01_zpshh2ahyln.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=52 But the owner is in the process of restoring the 260z but said he would sell the 280zx for a pretty low price. I had to strongly resist the urge to trade him 260z parts and money for the 280. Priorities priorities. I also just got a new DD in the form of 1995 Toyota/Lexus luxury. Gotta say this is my favorite car ever strongly recommend the LS400 to anyone who needs 4 doors for more whores (or children/family) http://s1375.photobucket.com/user/gsullens37/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20141016_174103_zpszlly65dd.jpg.html?filters[user]=141766240&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=53 We also just got back from a trip to Arizona which I gotta say is probably my favorite place to visit.
