Hahaha. That was quick! I know they say "you'll always want more power" but I would have thought it would have taken longer than 30 days.

So did you decide to not sell it? I really wanted to buy it when you had it for sale haha. Love it!

Well that's good then...still wish I could have bought it lol. That's great though, I would have loved to do this swap if it was more feasible for the non-fabrication types. I messaged you about it on norotors, but decided to just stick with the well known ls swap

Awesome build, a lot of work. There is a 1jz project for sale locally that I would like to jump on but I want to run the stock engine. I would need to see what all they've ripped out of it before I tried to get my hands on it. There's a lot of ghetto-ness that would need to be sold off too lol

Tyler, You should update this with all the additional work you have put into it. 1jz builds are few and far between.

Ill get one started as soon as I have my hands on a car..

I agree, I am going between a 1 or 2JZ when my 13B ultimately fails again. Id love to know all the details.

PS: Bringing it back from the dead!

I have a 1j building going on Norotors. It is much inspired by Sketch's build. SN over there is four, if you are looking.

Nice build and thanks for all the info. I feel this is a good route to go! I'm most likely taking the same path.
