My 1Jz Turbo Mx5 Project
Posted 16 November 2012 - 08:30 AM
New to the forum so just thought I'd share my new project with you.
I'm just part way through doing a 1JZ engine swap into my MX5 with all the donor parts from a Lexus Soarer. So engine, transmission and diff from the Lexus are going in. Removed all of the interior parts I don't need like A/C, Fan box, Heater matrix etc as I'm doing it primarily for Drag, but may do some circuit stuff as well.
The aim of the project....... to beat a Veyron up the Quarter mile ! I beleive they do 10.2 quarters so that's the target. Had an Evo a few years ago which did high 9's in the end, so got some experience of what works and what doesn't with Drag. I'm hoping for a sub 1000kg car and 500+hp in the first stage, then more power after that.
Nice to hear some of your comments on the project. Trying to get it done for next summer, but typically only spending a few hours a week on it at the minute so not sure.

There is one in states with 2zj that I know

Yeah, I don't think a 1JZ or 2JZ has been done in the UK before- I could be wrong - so we'll see if it turns out as good as I'm hoping!

Had to cut away part of the sump and trim the subframe and the engine sits about the same height as the bonnet, so to air on the side of caution, would like it to sit 1/2 to 1 inch lower yet.

Most of my headaches are around the subframe and the sump on the new engine so I can get it to sit as low as possible. Just need a bit more time to get it to sit another 1/2 inch lower so I can fabricate the engine mounts, and then build the engine.

Certainly food for thought. I like how the bar with the rack mountings bends at the ends and blends in. There are also subframes offered for v8 conversions that might be worth seeing. Flying Miata do one I believe
