2JZGTE VVTi T51R Project Update

Posted on

So been a bit of progress complete on the car over the last month or so;
Installed the following;

  • Okada Plasma booster (Same as HKS DLI)
  • Carbonetic triple plate clutch and flywheel assembly
  • TRD transmission mounts
  • AP Shifter bushings
  • New OEM components – 6 speed shifter and speed sensor seals, pilot bearing and rear main seal
  • Fixed up some wiring and ran some new hose ready for BOV install
  • Cleaned all the transmission, parts that came off and also the transmission tunnel
  • Replaced diff fluid while I had car jacked up

Have new Tial Q bov and AEM air filter coming in next few weeks, so will be then installed and off with fresh plugs with no gap for a new tune and more boost! Hoping to crack at least 430rwkw on pump

Had to adjust the clutch a bit on the pedal free play rod but seems to hold the power well and the shifts are now very firm and precise.

Gearbox removed and noticed it had bit of an oil leak from shifter bushing so got around to replacing seals (Pics with brake/clutch fluid )

Toyota Supra SZR to RZ conversion (2JZGE – 2JZGTE VVTi)

Posted on

The last video I’m uploading tonight – the video that started it all for me to get into this supra media coverage/publishing. Now over 120,000+ views on youtube I’m pretty stoked and overwhelmed by the reponse. Although a simple video diary of pictures and seems to hit the spot with viewers. At the time I had no idea about cars or supras but managed to do the conversion successfully with the help of guys from supraforums and friends/family.

Toyota Supra VVTi Single Turbo First Startup

Posted on

Before I started up the VVTi 2JZGTE T51R SIngle Turbo setup for the first time, I forgot to remove a wiring loom holder in front of manifold which caused vacuum leak and very loud squeal noise!

First Startup of my Toyota Supra VVTi Single Turbo with Garrett T51R turbo. Currently ECU needs to re-learn and radiator overflow hose was loose and air was getting through making squealing sound, better video to come once idling.
