Ktran was busy last week mocking up the turbo, hmic, charge piping, rad and coolant lines! Everything is now dangling on it’s own ready for some front tube support work….*cough* *IanMcDougall* Also ran/plugged up the 90% complete wiring harness and tucked it away!
Been looking at a few online forums for schematics and wiring diagrams for jz swapped cars. Came to the conclusion that I’m going to attempt to repair the engine harness and try to fire the 2jz engine only outside the car!
Like this guy:
Lol, kind of g-rigged but it’s better to have a piece of mind that something critical works so I can move on and focus on other parts like which transmission to use, fuel setup, exhaust and so forth. After some reading, it’s not many wires to get it cranking. Once my electronic pins, connectors, valve cover gaskets, and other misc nuts/bolts arrive; looks like I’ll be laying the harness out to keep wires I need and rip out the unnecessary ones like auto trans, traction control, and etc!
