Engine & Transmission / 2JZ-GE auto to R154
« on: October 22, 2016, 07:47 PM »
I have a 2jz-ge Auto that I'm trying to swap for a manual. Any manual, it's not major horsepower car so I don't need anything fancy. However, I happened to obtain a r154, which really is over the top for me. Not to mention it will take major $$$ to bolt up. It will need a 1jz bell housing, 1jz flywheel, and possibly a 7mgte clutch. I have an old 7MGTE clutch, but it will probably be out the door soon.

Should I just attempt to trade the r154 for a mkiv supra/is300 w58 that will bolt up? Or spend the $$ for 1jz stuff?

Journals / 1984 Mazda RX7 GSL - 2JZ swap!?
« on: June 24, 2015, 02:51 AM »
Update: It's running and driving. You can read further here

So, this is the start of my journal for my 84 GSL RX7.

I was browsing my Youtube subscription feed when the "Zero ****s given" RX7. It was love at first sight <3, the stance, the roar, the "**** you, get out of my way" factor just sold me completely with these cars. I knew I had to get my own so I saved my laundry quarters and bought it off @bradenpurchase

Here it is currently (Last updated: October 7 2016)

Anyways, I got it in the cold of winter and parked it. Here it was from day one.

Here is the before:

List of mods that I remembered off the top of my head...

  • 13b swap
  • webber 48ida carb
  • Fuel pump upgrade
  • Tokico Illumina
  • Some alternate rims (no idea what they are)
  • Boss kit

It had a few issues
  • 1) The aftermarket fuel pump he had installed was running on a separate circuit and used it's own fuse block and directly ran from the fuse to fuel pump. Making it never turn off.
Simple switch install fixed that (I never did install it properly from the ignition but this way works too).
  • 2)Coolant leak
Just a loose hose
  • 3)Diff leak
Loose bolt  :unamused:
  • 4)Engine oil leak
This was a mix of loose bolts and ****ty gasket. In my attempts to tighten said bolts, I over tightened one and snapped it off fml. Drilling attempt did not help. After 4+ hours of laying under the car drilling, I gave up and made a steel bar with a slight bend that would press against the gasket over that missing bolt. (No pics unfortunately). I made a new gasket and installed the new plate, and it worked. No leaks anywhere.

This was one of my first runs with it after the winter.

Holy **** was this thing fun. It sure drew attention.

The fun died off quickly though with the problems it would bring up.
  • The idle would like to flip **** at random and die. No matter how much tuning I did to the carb (even with the plugs being perfectly brown).
  • It would over heat constantly. Idle for 5 mins? Over heat.
Sometimes it got a little embarrassing to start it up in front of people and have it idle like **** or hardly start.

So after a bunch of thought and research, it was either EFI swap this thing or a complete motor swap. I went against EFI swapping it, as
  • Rotaries have a short life and need constant expensive care.
  • Replacement parts are hard to find
  • Parts to do an EFI swap will be next to impossible to find.
  • Much more resources for regular piston motors.

So I picked up a 2JZ-GE non turbo w/ auto tranny. Why?
I like them
Because race car
JDM as ****
Also, I hear they're pretty fast  ;)

Here it is.

My dad was pretty surprised when I brought this home. He didn't expect an inline 6.

So it was time to remove the old motor.

Bye bye hood

Bye bye coolant

This picture skips 3 days of riping apart the engine harness and removing 90% of the wiring. But it's out.

Now that the engine bay is cleared of the old motor, wiring, piping, other junk it's time to prep.

I started of with the cross member. I at first thought I would need to make a complete cross member from scratch and motor mounts but I figured I wouldn't need to. If I flip the cross member around and use the mounts from the donor car, it'll be fine.
So I started with removing the cross member

Now that it's out, lets fabricate it. I'll start with cutting the old mounts off.

What I didn't picture, was me cutting off the actual mounting points to the frame and flipping them backwards/switching places. I got them re-welded, here's the final product.

It was actually clipping the center link (the picture above was with the steering cranked completely sideways)

After some minor trimming...

I also chopped off the headers.

but now it was what I thought was ready.

I was planning to line it up over the cross member drill a hole and freed the bolt through in one afternoon  :lol:

I'm not the one looking majestic as ****

The problem was the brake cylinder, it was facing width wise of the car and it was directly in the way. So I tried to flip it, but that's harder than I expected. So we put the motor back and I was defeated for that day.

That quickly turned into 2-3 weeks of lifting in and out 5-6 times, drilling 2 wrong holes, and moving that brake cylinder.

Here it is sitting loose in the engine bay. It was at this point I knew it was gonna be possible. It's so much more intimidating and soul crushing sitting outside of the engine bay.

As you can see, hood will not clear. Like at all. I knew this buying this motor. It's a tiny car with a giant motor.

So, here it is mounted (wrongly) for the first time

See how far forward it is? Yeah. This would work but it wasn't done right. The correct place was 1 1/2 inch backwards, off of the bar FML.

So I made an extension.

Motor came out, cross member came out (much easier the second time knowing how to do it)

So I got it in, and wow. Was it ever a perfect fit. Everywhere. The oil pan form fit the cross member, the original fan fit, the vacuum lines weren't being crushed, there was room for twisting.

Mazda, are you sure you didn't intend for a 2JZ to be put in there?

So, now I got a mounted motor but till this point the transmission has been sitting on wooden blocks.

It time to unite the motor with it's new owner.

There was 2 issues, the mounts on the frame were a bit backwards from the transmission mounts. and it was also higher. So I had to offset this.

It was simple in concept but a pain in the ass to do. I took a steel bar and a metal spacer and drilled 2 holes for the frame, and 1 for the transmission mount.
This took a while, and many trips to Rona but it held itself in.

Here it sits today.

Decided to keep, this swap will actually work out.

Newbies / New to the club...

So, this my newbie post. I'll start with filling out that form from the sticky.

-Name: Garrett
-Where you're from: Lockport area (Narol)
-Type of car you drive:  Nothing fancy at all. 06 Cobalt LT but I'm on the hunt for an 80-85 Rx7
-What you can contribute to the community: As of right now, nothing. I'm just starting everything out, trying to get a whip and see where I'll go with that. Hopefully more down the road I'll be helpful.
-What you'd like to learn from the community: Pretty much everything, I'm not a car expert (I do know a fair amount though) but I love learning new things and why not hop right into the middle of it?
-Interests: Computers and cars. I'm currently a computer science major at U of M and I'm trying to get into the car scene a bit here.
-Pictures of your car: You want a picture of my car? Ha I'm too lazy to go out in the cold to take a picture of my stock cobalt. I'm sure you can picture it in your heads.

Anyways, hopefully I'll find the right car by this summer and I can be more of an asset to this forum. Hell, maybe even this forum will help me get started out too.
