Wink Fuschia 2JZ FC

Here it is!
So here's what we've been up to the last few months... 13b popped last October.. The car was sitting for awhile before I decided what to do with it. Built by Travis custom 2jz to fc mounts (motor and trans cross) custom shifter extension ... single turbo setup with custom fmic piping and full 3" ss exhaust, He also did all the polishing..... so far this is what we have... Not finished yet due to fundning... But it's getting close!







FD Seats

And here`s the car for thoes of you who haven`t seen it..

If you could give a ballpark of how much this whole thing cost you that would awesome. Did you get the engine from a wrecked supra or? Also i assume a full rebuild was done?

Need more info on what was performed.

lol... no real pics of the build process... Don't want to give away all the secrets... the turbo is a 67mm 84 A/R... it will not be sucking in the children :P

The swaps not done yet so i don't know the final cost...But I have started a list and when it's all together i'll post it up.The motor came out of a aristo that had some front end damage, has 93,000kms, I didn't rebuild it... its all just stock for now.

It's pretty much all custom... motor mounts, shifter extension,fmic piping and exhaust... that's as far as it's got so far... fmic went in today...So more pictures are coming.

That's a pretty poor attitude. Makes me want to build one and document the hell out of it for spite.

Dude for real this is a community, like what you've done isn't a secret or anything lol.

And its not like your going to open a "Supra motor to FD swap" shop or anything, this is a forum which means open discussion and what not.

But whatever i see your in Canada so maybe that explains it.

I love everything about this car. Wheels could be a bit more agressive but single turbo 2jz with baller purple stuff>everything. Period.

I'm Considering doing the sway, how hard was adjusting the shifter?
did everything fit right?

with making all the custom mounts and such, how much did the full swap run?
