Goal started out as building a supra kart mk3 but it was a turd on wheels, but it had a motor and trans that were in decent condition. After selling the Supra and it’s trans it was decided that the 2j should go in a land cruiser 80 after much thought about putting it in a 4runner first gen.
The things to get done grow everyday but I believe the list is finally starting to get shorter.
Specs current
2jz ge non vvti NA-T
R150f trans
1997 80 series land cruiser
Wheels 20”x10” trail readys

Picking up 37s today

Transfer case - Toyota gear driven dual case
Will be ordering at the end of the month
Just finished moving and have some stuff to do there

3 link will likely happen after the trans and motor are mounted - the test fit went better than expected.

2jz NA-T
Needs a few items
Injectors
Throttle body adapter and some plumbing

Ecu- ecu masters Black
This is a why project not a why not.

Doesn't the 1fz have significantly more power potential than a 2jz? Ive seen people removing 2jz's for 1fz's in Supra's because they can make more power. 2jz is only 3.0 liters, and the 1fz is 4.5 liters and can handle a lot of boost without any internal modifications.

White stripe you are Correct. Another small note is when I got the 80 she was a roller. No trans no motor

Watching.

Plans for the fuel tank? (I'm assuming when you say "gear drive Tcase" you're referring to mini truck stuff)

Haha yeah good eye.
The fuel tank will be very close most likely will be massaged or swapped.
The t case will be a dual case (r1fa) found in more than just mini trucks.

Can't say I agree with the engine choice for a big-arse 80 on 37's, but cool project all the same 👍 Former supra owner here :hillbilly:

Haha I can’t say I do myself, but I have a pretty decent idea on where the low down power will come from. There is a lot of engine bay.

Bell housing comes in tomorrow, decided to go ahead and drop the tank and look for rust. Wasn’t bad at all. Looking into selling it if someone wants it. Also tomorrow will start making mounts shouldn’t take too long. Then the bodywork can start going together. Finally.

Small update. All of the lights are working now. The motor is temporarily mounted on some modified ls motor mounts trans is mounted to engine. Removed the flares steps and spare tire hanger cut the hood for a scoop. Might buy an English wheel and make a scoop might not. Lq9 coil packs and 650cc injectors came in along with a walbro 400 and larger fuel filter. Will be doing a 30 plus gallon fuel cell in the trunk area. But want it hooked up to stock fuel neck so will probably have to cut the rear trunk area up a bit. Will be going water to air for the intercooler, and a larger 4 row aluminum radiator.

While I like seeing people do different things, it seems like a strange engine choice for a truck. JMHO.
