2JZ Powered Nissan 240SX

by Kyle Tomita on Thu, Jan 24th, 2013 | Modification, On The Dyno, Tuning

The Toyota 2JZ is a popular engine to build and swap.  One of our tech's has swapped a turbocharged version in his Honda S2000.  We have also swapped a 1JZ into Justin Shreeve's Nissan 240SX.  This time, we are swapping in a JDM 2JZ vvt-i to replace an SR20 in a client's Nissan 240SX.  

Before installing the 2JZ, we painted the engine bay.

A shot during the installation process.  At this point, we were still in the process of routing and fabricating the intercooler piping.  The wiring still needs to be completed.
