Here are the pics of the motor mounts I will take some more pics of the ones on the motor with the motor in and post them. There is a pic of my new intercooler and BOV just threw that in there. The big hole is gonna get boxed in and then I'll post some pics of that.


Here comes the car ****. lol

Yep with some angle on each side the one side sits about 1/8 inch lower than the other to make room for the fuel lines. I think this motor was made to go in this car.

instead of letting it sit lower you could have notched the pipe out! did you weld it in! if you didnt you could weld some nuts to the floor on the inside of the car so that you can bolt it to the car to make for easy removal!

EDIT! put pipe in place use angle to weld to side of square pipe drill holes, put bolts through from bottom up tighten up and weld nuts on the inside to floor!

Its not welded in I wanted it to be removable It has bolts through the frame I am going to box the frame with plate where it goes through so I wont have any issues. 4 bolts and it drops out like a factory one minus the fact that a miata dose not have one. lol

Your black miata in the pic looks good but it would look better with a 70mm turbo and a 2JZ sticking though the hood. lol I'm trying to start a trend anyone want to join in.

Help please I need a fabricator!!





Does anyone on this forum do welding/fabrication I have to notch the oil pan and have some plates made and welded in to make it fit and the couple of local fabricators around here are outrageous expensive and I would be willing to pay for the job and shipping both ways. The cheapest I have gotten so far is $300. Ill cut the pan and then I just need the plates made and welded. It is steel. I am willing to put a shop name on the car to get a name out if I can get a good deal on the fabrication. I will upload the pic later it is not working right now. If anyone is a fabricator by job or DIY but a good DIY please PM me if you think you can help.

thanks

Interesting... But I wouldn't do it.


TBH, I'm pretty skeptical of some prices you've listed in your build... You got a hard dog roll bar for 50$? WHERE?! And was it "USED" (ie, in a car that rolled over??)

Also like to add, LMAO over here at "spoolin 2 bars" anti-megasquirt bullshit. Please. Just please.

Supra owners don't use megasquirt because most of them are loaded douchers that'll buy the most expensive thing that can be found. Every 2jz owner I know is anyway.

It does look like an easy fit, very cool

But

Im feeling a little un easy about the engine mounts. I feel like it needs some bracing front to rear. Have you done any stress calcs? Are there only two mounts on that engine?

hope the turbo swap goes just as easily as the motor fit in, and in the same time frame. good luck with the whole build. in for pics of the 2jz running right now in the miata, without turbo. thats a feat in itself!
