, thanks; you're words are real wise. At the moment, I have been lookin' for Turbo kits online.
I found this to be the cheapest online:http://www.rhdjapan.com/trust-greddy-td ... 3s-ge.html
I don't get it, why so expensive? it doesn't even have an intercooler included in the kit.
That's like $2,200+
I need an intercooler kit, oil pan upgrade kit, etc. mentioned on the same site which will work out to an extra $1000. Plus freight, 'till my country it's goin' to add up another $400-$600 (roughly). By the way, freight charges and services are real sh*t and a pain in the a** in my country. It's pointless.
I'd rather top up a bit of cash and get a 2JZ.
Actually, my friend found for me a 2JZ, twin-turbo; which is already within the country and the guy is goin' to give it with the ECU and gearbox. he's askin' for $2600, that's his first price, I'm sure negotiations are open. Plus, my other friend has got an aftermarket ECU from Apexi for a Supra 2JZ.
I also had heard of an Altezza engine, with a turbo on it already, for sale; although, the body was damaged since it was in an accident. I wanted to go have a look and test it, but it was in another town (4-6 hours away). Last time I heard, someone already bought it, took it to South Africa, did it up and brought it back and is rollin' in the streets now. It was quoted to me for about $2100 when it was still sleepin'.
Still workin' my way out. My only worry is the wirin' in case I decide or get convinced to go 2JZ. As in, how do I fit the wirin' and stuff? And will the Supra gearbox fit on to the chassis or I'll need to get the Soarer R154 tranny as previous conversions consist of the Soarer tranny?
I don't know if there is someone good enough, in the country I am, to start rewirin' the whole car.
Still puzzled and need enlightenment. Tosh21
, I like the way you're sharin' your opinion. You mean Turbo rather than a 2JZ conversion, yeah? So, what you're sayin' is that once those parts you mentioned are upgraded, I could still run on the stock ECU 'till .7 bar? and what of the fuel pump, does it need an upgrade?
If possible, please give me Nick's ID, I can contact him and get a quote of the items.
Oh, yeah, guys. I have ordered a Wet NOS kit for the mean time from South Africa, do you think I should test it on the stock motor or wait for a Turbo?
