I wanna take the time and thank 2 great companies

Tech 2 motorsports: The team at Tech 2 has been so helpful and professional i would highly recomend them to anyone attempting to take on this swap they have provided me tech support as well as fast service, parts i ordered i recieved fast and if there was any issues they was always there to support i really want to thank them for all they have done

TJ Motorsports: Although knew im gonna tell you this company knows there stuff and provides support of there products and information to assist you in all your needs for this swap also. We have had many late nights of questions and general know-how that i needed to learn and not one time was i turned away from any information or help. There product is by far one of the best i have seen in my swapping and i would recommend them any day to anyone

IF YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO THIS SWAP OR ANY SWAP IN TEH RX7 FAMILY THESE TWO COMPANIES SHOULD NOT BE PASSED UP AT ALL BIG THANKS GUYS

Huzzah for 2JZ FD's!

hehe...

I wish I could have afforded to just do a straight Aristo 2JZ to make things easier in my FD...I probably will a little later down the road if I decide to make more power or something..

hey man..what size wheels are you going to run.. i was wanting to run some 18x10's all around with a +25 offset..but some people are saying its going to rub in the front??

easy would be to run 18x 8.5 +35 in front and 10 +25 in the rear..but i would LOVE to have 10" all around.
