CRUSTY'S JZX31

35 posts in this topic

I see your using a vvti motor,

what box are you running, W55/58?

Would be keen to yarn to you about the coversion, will most likely encounter the same

issues/ things needing to be done, as im doing a similar swap into an X61. (vvti 1JZ-GE/Wseries)

Thats not the factory exhaust manifold is it? or has photo just lit it up making it look aftermarket?

The stock one is pretty sweet for an OEM item though.

Oh dear, I did start one but then had it deleted as thought this was for the MK II for some silly reason.

I blame the codean :oops:

Car was a factory MX31 so maybe a little different to the G series. Only had to do custom engine mounts which are being changed. Other than that every thing lined up mint. Box bolted in and had heaps of space around the headers for the steering box. Due to cash and getting the datsun this has not progressed much further :( but the datto gets a good work out as my daily.

I was lucky enough to get every thing off the one guy so he done the ring gear and had a brand new fliwheel, clutch etc. So all up the engine, box, fliwheel, bellhousing, clutch etc cost me $1300. box is a W55. I just want to drive it. My cefiro lives next to it which I have owned since 04.

Man, it's been so long since I've seen this thing, can't wait to see it again even if it's just through the interwebs.

I live in ChCh Ky so no doubt it will make its way south. Will be aiming for ITBs on the 1jz which Pies wanted also. Its such a nice feeling talking to some one about the repairs needed and getting a date for which they will start. Plans are not to paint and leave it a little rough but have a sweet sounding engine. Datsun will be up for sale when this starts to really take off.

Oh t-roo! I just figured it was still in Wellington. Good shit. I guess I need to find the equiv. Nissan coupe and RB26 it for comparison purposes.

I'm glad that car is in good hands.

Will do next time Im up seedy. Pretty sure they are from a 2jz as the alloy engine mount has a nip out of it to fit. Now I just need 6x throttles hanging off the side.

That panel work is awesome.

Is it one of those 'take as long as you want/doing it on the side so it doesn't cost moonbeams' sort of deals?

Definitely the way to do it.

That photo always cracks me up and you did a pretty good job for teaching your self.  Shame you guys didnt cover the seats as now they are full of burn holes haha.  Kayne prices each repair with prep and products used which is prefect for tracking what is being spent.  He is giving me a very good deal and has other work to do so my car can chill while I save money.
