well, the the time has come, im looking for a 1jz swap. First does anyone have any recommendation on a place to buy one? I know i need the front sump, and the R154 with the short shifter housing. Once i can get an engine set ill have this thing on the down hill slide!

Im going to put some things here to help others out now.

Here is an awesome link describing what everything does in detail..

Called several times, cant get a solid answer on what they have. I cant see myself paying someone that kind of money if they cant communicate enough with me to make me feel comfortable. how local is local to you? id like to have someone check it out before i buy

when i went i was able to pick the specific engine set i wanted. Its about an hour and a half away. They were pretty hard to communicate through phone but in person was simple enough.

Looks like ill be going through JDM engine zone on the engine.

something i noticed, is when you guys are making your engine mounts, your using 6 bolt holes on 1 side, and 5 bolt holes on the other.. Any of the engine mounts ive seen for a 2jz supra swap only use 4 bolt holes, the 4 that are close together.. is there any reason you all are making bigger engine mounts? is it just for piece of mind?

Doesn't matter. Just how whoever made the mounts did them. You will not break them either way!!
