Wiring Part 3
Aristo engine differences Part 4
Installation Part 5 – You are here
Final thoughts Part 6
So at this stage most of the tedious hard work of any custom wiring is complete and the process of upgrading engine and drive line components should be done at this stage before the engine is installed, which really is just about the last part.
There is so much work that does go into this stage though, especially with the Aristo engine differences, so I’ve added that to Part 4 here – http://www.2jzgarage.com/2016/02/toyota-supra-na-tt-conversion-aristo-engine-differences-part-4. This is where you can find out more info about swapping over parts from the Aristo engine, I suggest that you read this as it also shows some other components that you need to install such as sensors and engine mounts.
I was a little light on with pictures near the end the end of this project as the finishing touches went on as it became very exciting and I just wanted to drive the bloody thing! So apologies in advance for some lack of information and pictures at this stage, but I think those parts are fairly self-explanatory.
Below are some of the new parts I’ve listed as recommend and optional. I do recommend changing as much as you can while the engine is out, this list was the basic one I was willing to change on my 70,000km (43,00mile) Aristo engine and within the budget I had at the time. If I had a larger budget then I would’ve done as much as possible at this stage – please, please, please do the timing belt as a bare minimum!

• Cam, crank, rear main seals

• SMIC or FMIC and piping
• Clutch and flywheel
• TT Exhaust system
• TT Radiator and hoses
• TT Air intake
• Timing belt tensioner
• Timing belt tensioner pulley/bearing (aftermarket billet bracket if possible)
• Harmonic balancer
• Aftermarket cam gears
• Engine gasket kit
• Aftermarket clutch and flywheel
• TT clutch master cylinder heat shroud
