progress on the 2j swap – its down to the small nitty gritty stuff that takes the longest to do.
to cut a long story short, here’s the jist of it:
i reckon that sounds pretty sick! and how quiet is that idle with no exhaust??
since last post, a couple of things have happened.
radiator+elec fans+shroud fitted and plumbed; camry throttle cable fitted; engine mount bolts finally done up after adding oil filter sandwich plate and oil pressure sender for new gauges (oil filter was in the way of the mount bolt); boost sender mounted; new air filter pipe and IC piping beaded by mike and installed; evan’s exhaust downpipe fitted, oxy sensor extended; broken IACV VSV valve sourced and replaced, brake booster vacuum hose connected; heater lines connected; gearbox topped up with Redline Shockproof; powersteering connected and filled; clutch bled; plugs sanded, coils cleaned up…
lovin the IC work – simple and sweet
still a couple of things to do – there is a pesky water leak from the firewall heater hose (of course in the most inaccessible place) and my boost taps need to be tee’d and plumbed in, and the electric fans need to be connected to the thermo switch and relayed up – otherwise all underbonnet work is more or less completed
heres some earlier pics before the radiator work etc
last on the list – exhaust to be made up, rear subframe swapped in, front brakes swapped over, reassemble interior with new gauges (have decided to run an 80mm tacho instead of f34king around with pulling the dash apart to rewire the tach for now) and then she should be ready for certification and WOF!
watch this space, shes comin along nicely 😀
