QUOTE
Just thought I would throw up a more few pics of my Opel Omega (Holden Commodore/Cadillac Catera) with a 1JZ-GTE swapped in. I live in Thailand which is engine swappers paradise.

I did away with the stock twins, as they were intefering with the brake servo, and its now a TD-08.

I am somewhat limited as I am only using an EVO FMIC which just sits nicely, without too much hacking around. RB26 would be better but a bit of an ordeal to get it in and make it look nice. Because of this I make more power at 1.3 bar than 1.5.

For engine management (to get A/F ratios right) I use Greddy E-Manage. I think it is impossible to use a stand alone ECU as the factory unit is needed to control the autobox.

SARD 550cc injectors, 3 Bosch fuel pumps.

I had some problems at higher boost, this was traced back to the cheap wastegate, I just replaced it with an expensive Trust one. Now it boosts up to 1.5 no worries.

3" stainless straight through, no cats and no silencer boxes.

HKS electronic variable boost controller.

Brakes Skyline R33.

Has taken me a long time to iron out all the niggles, but the car is running well and is very quick. Also sounds fantastic.

He should have gone with a more reliable engine. Those old Supra engine are pieces of crap; sure it will make 400 hp, but not for very long before it goes boom.

An LS1 swap would have been much better.

I believe you are thinking of the later 2JZ.

Those 1JZ had constant head gasket failure and head warpage issues. Total junk.

Cool car I bet its fast too I think i would rather an ls1 but thats my opinion The LS1 is basically bullet proof and the testing for it and other ls engines is very extensive

He needs to clean up that car some... get rid of the mud flaps, the stickers on the windows, all the GT-R badges, and the hood pins. That car has got to be lowered or at least get the rocker panels and lower bumpers painted silver so the car doesn't look like it's 2 feet off the ground. It's an interesting motor swap, I wish him luck with the head gasket.

i dont know why u guys are all concernd about the headgasket ,some aftermarket headgasket and arp studs and done job
LSx is a good motor but when you compare the price LSx to 1jz or 2jz......ull get the point then when you see the price difference
