its coming out sweet. this thread is pushing me towards the sc300. i was looking at selling oneof my trucks and buying either an sc300 to later on possibly doing one of these swaps on it or a mark viii with a 32v engine. as much as i love the mark viii the sc300 has been on my favorite car list ever since micheal jordan's dad was murdered in his back in the day.

keep up the good work.
Thanks for the heads up, yep i will keep a close eye on that temp gauge.

Thanks man, yeah i also love the SC300 in fact i almost traded my bimmer before i started working on it for an SC300. The SC is a lot heavier then the bimmer so i dicided to do a swap instead.

Looking to drive the car to Moroso on Dec 5th.. So if anyone goes.. look for me

Either a 4link dif or a 8.8 ford dif which i already have. I need some wheels for slicks and suspension.

Not sure which suspension setup to go with yet but a better dif will be a must specially reaching my HP goal.

I'm right here!

Shit looks great, but 2 things:

1. I'm pretty sure you're not the first person in Florida to swap a 2JZ into an E30. It's probably been done before in Florida. Besides, people put 2JZs in everything these days, even a bag of chips has a 2JZ

2. Don't run too much boost, you could blow the welds on your intake manifold. Make sure that your floorboard is reinforced.

Also, make sure that the chassis is reinforced on the diff and transmission mounts.

Shutup solo, don't make me mention the time you broke your driveshaft bolts because they weren't torqued down properly
