Recommended Posts

there are so many JDM V8 are swaped or swaping into a S30 now .

many of the new comer like me are considering which is the most easier and suitable to choose for.

therefore, i hope all of you can share your opinion here so that people who interested can get their info needed to make a right choice according to their needs. especially for those who already build thiers which is running well now on the road.

This is not a bolt-in solution and might not actually work without some modifications,

This is a crossmember sold by Betamotorsports, which allows you to install a 1JZ/2JZ into an S30

 

The 1UZ comes out of a Soarer, which shares pretty much the same suspension as the JZA80 Supra, which the 2JZ comes from, this crossmember was designed for the 1JZ/2JZ engines into the S30!

 

Thats the theory, don't know if it will hold true in practice though!

 

The other option for mounting your engine could be something like this!

Unfortuneatly I don't really have much information about the VH engine, little practical things like, do you have to move the alternator or A/C compressor for intermediate shaft clearance - or will the stock headers work - Unless you can get in contact with this fellow,

Its going to most likely be a case of buy and see how far away it is from fitting! And then start fabricating!

 

The 1UZ offers you a bit more aftermarket support and it's a touch smaller than the VH41/45 and I know personally it fits, but my experience is probably going to be different as I have used a different crossmember!

 

Check this out mate!

I have taken the long way around and if you went with a 2nd crossmember design like the Betamotorsport product, or just mounted the engine mounts of the chassis rails like 240hoke the actual fitiment of the engine would be a lot more straight-forward!

 

With any of the engines you have listed it won't be a case of buying a set of already in existence engine mounts and bolting the engine in place - at this point - that option does not exist!
