Well here is the start of a long journey, many have come before me and I hope a few after me.  But 2JZGTE non VVTI bolted to a R154 MKIII.   Picked up motor and trans this weekend, a 12 hour round trip.  BLAH.  But one step closer to having one of the rare 2J quests.
Don't look now but I think I'm being followed!!!!!
2j SUV
Here it is sitting, just awaiting the day for a heart transplant.

2j r154
Here is original motor, it is looking for a new home.  A lot of the parts came from Fresnog54b, I believe it is a non-jet valve head and it still runs.  let me know if anyone is interested.

Did you buy the engine from one of the big JDM warehouses?  If so, I'd like to hear about the experience. How to pick the one to buy?

First off let me say that now days you cant really be to picky looking for a 2j gte non vvti.  There defiantly not to many around anymore.  That being said, I bought from JDM of San Diego.  Great place, worked with me on pricing and loading it into my SUV.  The best thing you can do is take some tools with you, most will do a compression test for you but that's only half what you need to know.  A leak down test is more valuable in selecting a motor.  Every motor you buy you should do this.  much better idea of the health of the motor without disassembling which you really cant do.

Thanks for the tip. I'm considering this swap myself. How was the engine fitment without cutting the front support?

It is a very tight fit, but doable if you want to drop the motor and trans in with the factory upper radiator support intact.  It makes it insanely easier to cut out a section that is the width of the engine.  This way you dont have to worry about banging up your firewall when installing the motor and trans.

They are xcessive s13 mounts for the 240. The sub frame on s13 is 43* angle the same as starion. The bottoms I learned from a old school hotrodder. It is 2 1/4 inch plate with a hockey puck in the middle for a little vibration dampening. If I donít like them I can find or make a poly. So itís a semi-solid mount due to the bolt all the way to sub frame. I am modifying a xcessive sc300 r154 mount now for the trans I will post when I get it bolted on. Hope this helps as there are a lot of good ideas on here how to mount up 1-2jz. Just my take.
