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.
I got the roll bar used off Craigslist from a guy who sold his car and let it sit around for like 3 years and just wanted to get rid of it and some of the other stuff came from friends of mine so I got it cheap.

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?
There is only two mounts on the engine and the one trans mount. We had my car and my buddies sc300 side by side and did a lot of sitting and looking and everything seems to be good as far as where the stress should be transfered, but when we fire it up and drive it if it feels even a little sloppy I will add some rear down bars kind of like a roll bar just to be safe.

naw dude didnt you know? megasquirt is only good for really low power setups, like on miatas. Also, I heard megasquirt only likes gay cars like miatas, supras arent gay...

Here are the pics of the oil pan I posted about earlier and the paint shop pic is a side view kind of crude but gets the point across.

I have no problem running a megasquirt in fact I have been reading a lot about it on this forum but I want to get it running before I got to full standalone. I know this is kind of working against myself but my harness is already going to be a full stand alone harness all I will have to do is re-pin it and find someone to tune the car because I have no idea where to even start. The only tuning I have done was on a CRX we built and put SDS standalone on it and all the fuel map and timing and everything else is done with this little lcd screen and a couple push buttons and the company put a pretty good base tune on to start.

Anyway the car will go megasquirt just not till next winter.

The way I see it is most people that have a boosted 2JZ have something to make a status statement with not saying all are like that but a lot and they normaly have money to burn so AEM standalone is no big deal but why would I spend $2000 of my hard earned money for something when there is a product that is just as good and proven for $500.

Your right I won't get any street cred for my stock ecu 2JZ swap gay miata but the look on all the guy's faces when they get waxed by the gay miata with the small 2JZ sticking through the hood will be good enought for me. Maybe in my next life I'll do a $30,000 swap just for fun. But for now I'll stick to the $2,500.00 budget.

Has anyone on this site done a RX-7 rear conversion I found one for cheap and I feel like it is a good way to put a solid rear in my car for this engine. If so I used search and could not find any real good info on it like what axels to use I can make brackets to brace the rear but what axels do I use and do I have to change my spindles or anythind like that.

Any info will help
