In japan they dont have any EGR( exhaust gas recirculation) if it better or not i dont know it is just different. The Turbo Supras in -91 and -92 here in the us came with the older model 7M-GTE engine, the 7m is also a very good engine but not as reliable at higher horsepower. i used to have a 7m that was putting out over 650rwhp.

I wouldnt mind going with a 7M with mild power being pushed through it..
300hp wouldn't be too hard to achieve and still keep it reliable..

I'm sure one could easily upgrade some internals to take care of a few issues..

Is there like a write up you could do or tips or some kind of direction you went in and issues you have. Maybe we can make some kind of revoltionary swap for our trucks and stick it to em!

I give you props for the hard work you put into the truck (assuming you did everything yourself)....but I just don't like the truck, sorry, not my cup of tea.

What he needs to do is jack up the motor, take off the motor mounts, and reproduce them and sell them. I'd buy a set if it's quality work.

with issues adressed, things and problems you ran into, maybe if we can track down some people who have also done a 2jz swap and maybe colaborate and maybe get something off the ground with this. maybe a year from now get notariety as the "it" swap for tacos :looney: :runaway: i think too much
