I love this.

That is not an inexpensive TIG.

Beautiful work Ben. Very Happy

I see you're dabbling with SolidWorks. If you need that rad mount cut out, I can provide you with the file if you need it to build up your assembly. Only took 10 minutes to draw up though. Very Happy

Nice TIG! Oh and nice TIG weld on that motor mount, you do that?

I wish I could take credit for the Solidworks design but no it was me. I hope to spend some time next winter learning design software. I can take credit for the tig weld though Smile

I should be able to fill up a whole 4x4 worth of peices for your table. I just have some more fitting to do. Most likely the rad shroud, an airbox, heat shield and intercooler mount.

Very nice weld Ben!

No probs. Just come up with the sketches and I can have it modeled and nested for you. You're going to enjoy simply welding things together.

Things have been coming along with the motor swap. Its crazy how much time it takes to round up all the little pieces and wait for parts. I pretty much just need to mount up the new rad and take care of a little wiring. Should be all ready for Black Hill Cruiser Classic!

Intercooler and ps cooler complete.

Coolant lines are a tight fit but Im happy with the routing.


Waterjetted hose mounts

New shroud getting cut from Mint Design aka Conrad Turbo

Im stoked to have the ps pump back on the proper side.

Also no more bulky 7m afm as the jdm 2jz uses a map sensor.

Fresh OEM engine cover

MK4 Supra throttle cable fit perfect.

Bleeder for the rear mount rad

Deleted the unused traction control and mount a new blow off valve.

tranny skid

Thanx dude. The list is getting smaller...kinda, as soon as I cross something off I find something new to add.

- Hookup brake booster (need banjo bolt)
- Install drive shafts
- Install front bumper
- Install body panels/grill/headlights
- Install hoodlatch
- Install driveline ebrake (arriving Monday from North Shore)
- Bleed brakes
- Wiring

The wiring won't be more then a weekend job I have the dash off and everything planned out. Jp's previous work with the cab harness makes putting in the 2jz engine harness a sinch. Literally 3 wires to hookup and I can fire the motor. After that just a few gauges and check engine light to wire.

Your vid on Facebook is pretty sweet! Jeez you got this going quick! Here is the radiator shroud with a few more pixels. Laughing


And the final cutout part.


Let me know how the bending goes.

Unrelated note...I was in a trade show last Saturday and your sister was selling antique items next to me. You came up in the conversation after "I have a brother in BC that makes fiberglass Toyota parts", I knew it was you after I guessed Penticton. Small small world. Very Happy

Thanx for the comments dudes. The truck is coming along nicely. I have it 99% wired up now and the "to do" list is getting smaller. Sorry I haven't had time to keep this thread updated but i'll try and get a video up this week. She runs super smooth and makes the 7m sound like an old tractor motor

I only had about 6 wires to hookup for the engine wiring but dam it took a long time to finish it all up. I tossed new braided sleeve on everything else in the process. Its busy but at least no stray wires. Also note the igniter mounts under the dash and doesn't just dangle there Very Happy

This is where everything ties into the factory cab harness, still uses factory gauge cluster.

JP customs fuseblock.
