Another guy is working on this swap.


Any pics of the build you're working on?

Well welcome to the forum if you have any questions about your 2j swap I will be more than happy to help and I can also give you some do's and dont's being that I have done them all already. Good luck with the build.

What trans are you going to be running and I saw from my build thread you have a 2jzge what ecu will you be running? The vvt engine is good not as strong as the other 2j engines but will still support 400-500 easy. I hope to see this thing come alone.


I would also like to add this swap is not for the faint of heart. It will take time and even more time to do it right. There will be times you wish you never started the build and other times you couldn't imagine anything else. Just stick to it and you will make it to the end. Hopefully faster than mine did.

Now maybe someone can understand what you're trying to convey.

how to build a drift car:

Step 1: Spend money on a paint job because aesthetics are important in drifting; much like a woman's tutu.
Step 2: Ruin paint job.
Step 3: Repair.
Step 4: Repeat #1.

thanks man i know the vvti is weaker but i got a good deal on the full swap and im about 4 days in to the build and i already have it ready to mount in there it seems to fit much better in the nb then your na and as for the swap its a 2jzge vvti with a w55 out of a 04 is300 and im planning on running the stock ecu for now then building it up over time much like you have

I think you should drop the 2jz and go talk to my boy Hector, he's got a few spoon engines for you.
