    Had grand plans of using a Nissan TB48, but was soon cut short, the engine was just too damn big...

    Ditched that idea and went back to the 2J. After selling a few parts from the Cressida I realised that I had to buy them again.

    Placed spare cylinder head on to check clearance, all seems fine. Good access to bolts if the trans ever needs to come out.

    Pretty good around the subframe and steering rack too, can probably lower it a little bit more too which is good.

      Awesome. I was wondering how you were going with this, you know you already started a thread previously don't you? You still have the Cressy or parted it for this or sold it? Keep the updates coming I love your builds. I have the same model but 530D.

        Are they working now?

        I thought I deleted that thread, not to worry. I will just update this one from now on.

        I took all of the good bits out of the Cressida and gave it to a wreckers. I tried to sell the rolling chassis but no one was interested, even some of the wreckers weren't keen on it as it didn't have an engine in it - note to self, don't buy old shit boxes ever again.

        I will keep this update with progress, currently waiting on a couple of parts to progress the build.

          Pics are working now. Oh well all the good bits are going into this then so shouldn't take too long to build you've already done most of the hard work. Should make it easy to do mine when you're finished this one.

                      Was thinking, did you consider a barra? Big capacity like you wanted and even has the ZF gearbox like the original car.

                        Great project, and quality work so far...I will be checking in on this regularly.

                        What is the plan for the hot side?

                            That fits in there so perfectly!

                            Are you going to have issues with mod plating because 2J was made up to 2005 and this is 2006? Or how does it work

                              Gen 2 GTX55 with Tial rear housing. I am just waiting on a 6boost manifold. Kyle mentioned that compared to the Supra I have a bit more space between the cylinder head and chassis rail so he think it'll fit okay. Fingers crossed.

                              He didn't seem to care so doubt there will be any issues.
