I have been looking for a suitable engine for my starion project, and was planning on a 1jz gtte, but i stumbled upon a cheap 2jz-ge nearby for cheap and am having a hard time looking the other way.  I have read mad dax's na-t thread but i am wondering who has had experience with the NA-T and if it is worth going for or if I should just wait for another engine to come along.

From what i understand the ge and gte have the exact same bottom end, but different pistons and different heads. Ge having larger exhaust valves, gte having larger intake valves, along with the manifold flanges being different. I am no stranger to welders, etc

Thanks for the ideas in advance.

I say go for it.

The NA motor also doesn't have oil squirters but that doesn't matter because most 2jz guys delete them anyway from what iv read.

I personally have seen an NA-t single turbo supra with stock NA manifolds and head make 500whp. So unless your looking for more than that I say scoop it up.

There is nothing wrong with a ge. When built right they will make big power.

Crazy Quest the na manifolds were going to be my next question haha, so thanks for that. I can make an exhaust manifold work (swapping out flanges ) but I liked the idea of the na intake making better off-boost torque I read. Anyone know about that?

I've been thinking about this too lately. Seems like it might be a better option than picking up a JDM 1JZ-GTE on a pallet.

The reason i went with the 1jz was because i got a good deal and it comes with the trasmission you already need.. saved me several dollars there.. but a NA-t swap will make power, someone else here done one, browse the swap section, i believe he made 514HP with it too

Ya I really didn't like the idea of buying a motor without seeing it in person first. Plus I could run it na for a bit to get the car finished haha

i didnt either and was very skeptical about it.. i also knew where the engine i got came from and knew it ran.. When i was looking at buying online it was a real hassle, and it was almost impossible to get anyone to work with you on sending pictures and things like that.. never seen so many companies that dont want your money..

Yeah I was probably going to go that route, since it seems they've already been proven to work well.

I got it from a kid who claims he was sliding it on a gravel road, saw a car coming, lost control and slid into the ditch... then the oncoming car lost control and slid into the same ditch and smashed the front. I got it for dirt cheap. Paints not the greatest but there's almost zero rust except some surface stuff. I work in a body shop so I put it on the frame rack and straightened most of it but Im still putting a different front end on that I got from a forum member here.

Sweet. I'm very interested in this; I'm about an hour away and would love to come check out your project sometime. I'm seriously considering this swap myself. If you plan on spending a Saturday/Sunday on it sometime, let me know, I'd be happy to come up and lend a wrench hand.
