Re: Turbo 2rz build

Didn't really have much time today after work.

Drained the oil pan prepping for removal. removed all oil pan fasteners that were accessible.



Now for the pesky 2 transmounts to remove for the flywheel dust shield.

Re: Turbo 2rz build

Removed bellhousing bracket bolts for the dust shield, loosened the ones on the motor so i could Jiggle the brackets. got the last 4 bolts off (the 2 on the driver side can suck it) a speed wrench would have been handy on those...instead i used a normal 'old wrench.


got the oil pan off after about 5 minutes of tapping the front with a flathead screwdriver and hammer. got a little nick on the block but i think it will be ok.


used a razor blade, scotch bright pad, wire brush, and some brake cleaner after that to get it looking fresh. tapped a brass fitting later and put "the right stuff" around the outside of the brass fitting (and in the threads a lil) and resealed up the oil pan. wasn't too bad (cept for the socket falling in my eye while tightening )

if this leaks i will freak the hell out.

Re: Turbo 2rz build

turbo oil feed plumbed in and oil drain line hooked up, next to put the turbo and downpipe in.

I also extended the oil pressure sender wire in the process

Re: Turbo 2rz build

well lately i've been trying to work out the bugs and it's been nothin but frustration











looks sloppy right now. i need to wrap the header more and spiral wrap the maf wires, clean up the vacuum hoses, etc, but right now my focus is getting it to run right...i have another better-fitting coupler coming in this week for the Tb to the charge pipe.
