V8 FCs don't alter the factory subframe, FYI.

You could raise the back of the hood with spacers, cut the hood and put a drop vent in for more clearance or just cut the skeleton and see where that gets you.

It should be fine.

droppin the subframe or lower mounts def seems like a cheaper option than dry sump, cant wait to see it done...and ya the angle of the pistons on a V8 make it short enough to clear a NA FC hood, inline 6s are just taller

Honesty Earl all you really need is an 0.5"-0.75", it's not really that bad.
Most of the swaps I've seen don't even drop the frame, they just notch
it and re-weld a top plate. Most of the Supra guys end up with a MoTech
standalone, it just seems to be whats popular with them. I've seen quite
a few people in Japan use engine shock dampeners instead of the pricier
gas shocks for propping the hood (I think Top Secret and a few others
sell them for nonspecific car apps.). You can get dampeners for around
35$ per, then make your own brackets.

I've always have been intrigued by 2j swaps in FC's, would make an excellent reliable DD.

Good luck with the build.

Am getting ready to do a 2JZ swap to my 89`T2 also. I have my 10th A.E car with a Fd swap. So why not play with a toy motor, I have a good friend of my with a 97` Supra and And small single 60-1, Big intercooler, HKS evc, Carbon-carbon twin disk, hks ignition, we`ve beat the hell out of this car and it still runs like a raped ape, Just change the plugs and oil and keep beating. Am ready to abuse a car like that for my own, even most best built rotarys can`t take the abuse we`ve give this car, Oh did I say the rear end blow once. with slicks.
Hell I say go for it, and GOOD LUCK with your build.

And holy ******* **** check this out!!!!!


https://www.rx7club.com/other-engine-conversions-non-v-8-118/everyone-read-other-engine-conversion-forum-rules-400819/

Who knew?


New rule should be "you will be ******* BANNED FOR LIFE for talking such **** in this section"

jz motors are just uber ejaculatoryfantasmgastic. Haters just dont know.

I actually want to see more crazy motor swapping, not less due to people being ******* and making the internet suck harder than it already does.

I'm doing a 1jz swap into my 88 TII AE and I can tell you that even with the engine as low and as far back as I can possibly put it (1/4" between the pan and the subframe), its going to be really close for hood clearance. This is with me cutting the reinforcements out on the underside.

I was considering the 2jz myself, but from my measurements its just under 2" taller than the 1jz. If your going to lower the subframe, be sure to space the steering rack back up to the original height if at all possible. If not be prepared to deal with some bumpsteer.

you can also cut a 2jz sized hole in the firewall and move the motor back a little. that requires some sheet metal work to enclose the firewall... and it makes it a pita to remove the valve cover but its till possible.
