Default 1jz/2jz Conversion

I talked with Dinsdale and he said he wants me to build the torque tube adapter for either a 2jz or a Volvo 24 valve inline 6.

Just gauging interest in a production swap kit.

That would be really cool. Unfotuetly or fortunately I'm already a V8 guy... Lol
But the sound of a 2jz would be so sick.

I'm going to build the adapter where it clocks the engine so the factory brake booster stays put.

No headers to worry about either.

Will it fit? The 1z/2jz is a long engine.

But then you have to upgrade everything else on the car to handle more power...so I disagree.

If the 1JZ/2JZ fits then the RB24/28 DETT will (say no more)!

How a 1uz? Shorter and lighter than 1jz/2jz. Makes as much power as the turbo 2jz. And there's enough room in front for a BIG turbo.

i like the 1UZ concept...that is a very available engine for sure and very solid.
but it's really iffy getting it by the smog police in Kalifornia because they only came with automatics in USA...
