-72 240z 1UZ-FE/R154 conversion

Recommended Posts

Have been alot at work recently, so there havent been much progress... I am just finishing the R230 install, had to modify the MM kit to make it fit properly. Have assembled the driveshaft and the cv-joints, and they fitted very well. I installed 280z stub-axels from MM to match up the rest... They took a while to get.....

Thanks, Toyota powered, like this one.... Can you find 510's in Europe?

 

Yes, the 4-door and wagons were common cars here in the days, but theres not many left.... They were named 1300, 1600 and 1800. But the 2-door was not sold in Norway, maybe further south in Europe.

 

Think i have to find me a 2-door from US, and ship over to Norway. My Z is also a US car, the previous owner is Rayapp here at the forum:)

It's alive!!

 

After a couple of weeks working on wiring the whole car, we had the first startup a couple of days ago.

Just some tidying up in the wiring mess now, and fix some fuel leaks... Then I will install fenders and front and start testing/mapping.

 

The sound of the engine with all trottles fully open is AMAZING! :)

When you "joined" UZ and the r154 did you use a full bell housing like this " http://www.ebay.com/itm/1uz-1uzfe-toyota-Bellhousing-R150-R151-R154-gearbox-/280979269056?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&hash=item416bab65c0&vxp=mtr "

or did you use an adapter plate? I am collecting parts for this swap now :) !!

 

I bought a full bell housing with flywheel ant clutch from http://www.dellowconversions.com.au/

Sweet!

 

1UZ's are crazy reliable. My SC400 has over 300K on the clock now, and doesn't burn a lick of oil. I just recently supercharged it too using the Lextreme "Fish" bracket.

 

What are you using for engine management?

 

I'm using Megasquirt MS1 Extra with MS relay board
