SCs never came with V6s, all I6 and V8's. And yes, its not a bad idea to slap a turbo and head gasket on the stock SC300s and have ur self a turbo one, but the components inside the motor arn't built to handel as much power as a stock 2jzgte. Yea, I believe the JDM Sc300 turbo/twinturbo (think they came in both) did come with a 1jz. (side note, thats what uneo is running.)

In stock form... 91-96 models (zenki(91-94 before minor change) and chuki (95-96 middle of minor change)) 2.5L turbo Soarers are twin turbos. (twin CT12A turbines, that will blow real easy once the boost is turned up past 1.0kg for prolonged periods of time due to wonderful ceramic blade turbines ...spools fast though) I believe from 97 to the end of jzz30 body .. I think 2000 or 2001 (kouki (97+ after minor change)) they changed over to VVTi and single turbine (CT26 if I remember correctly) These engines correspond to the same Chaser/Cresta/MarkII of 90 and 100 series engines as well. 90= twin trubo 100=VVTi with single turbo.

If your lucky enough to find one... JZX90 cpu is same cpu as JZZ30 so if you find a front clip with cpu and harness from JZX90 it will work as it is the same cpu/harness to engine. likewise jzx90 power fc or fcon will work for soarer as well. just some things to ponder anyways good luck.

not to jack the thread but im in the middle of dropping in the vvti motor in my 92....Then i will blow driftgirls doors off . but i ran into a snag.....the damn driveline from the SC300 (2jz NA 5sp) is smaller....you got any info regard the yolk i can use? aside from that the wiring needs about 3more feet. other than that ... im cruising along with the swap...this is all at about 8 hours worth of work.

to keep with thread. i have some new seats to lighten the load. and will be gutting the interior. when i yanked the engine i was able to push the clip around fairly easy....but can easily tell that alot of the weight are those motors.

Cool!! I hope it gets done by then...its really close, so work hard!! You can always take the shaft to a driveline shop (kind that specialize in custom 4x4 trucks) to get your stock one sorted out, They do that type of stuff all the time.

I dont think people realize how rare the swap that youre doing is ...

I would love to take my SC300 to a drifting event.

Need to figure out a way to handle the "weak" transmission before I can do this. I heard about swapping the Getrag 6-speed...but if I'm doing that. Then, I may as well do a 2JZ-GTE swap as well.

Actually...my SC300 is a manual. I was told that the transmission (W58) will not take that much abuse (from the guys at RPS Clutch). So I'm trying to figure out what my options are. Getrag 6-speed would screw up my speedometer and if I'm doing this...I'm going w/ 2JZ. However,...it is also really expensive.

Hmm...not sure what to do at this moment.

nope i dont think they do... .. well here it is in all its splendor. One of the firsts . I am really happy with the overall turn out...now come more tuning items and kit and its on...plus need to clean the motor.

the tranny is a weak point but the getrag is waaay overkill unless you're planning on a 500hp+ car...

The JDM 5spd is what you want but they're hard to find...

BTW, a sub 3000lb SC/Soarer is possible with some gutting, carbon fiber parts, and a titanium exhaust. I don't think Driftgirl is right about the doors though...they're suuuper heavy. The Vertex ones cost about $8000 but they're drycarbon which isn't practical or affordable for most people. A company called SWAT makes FR and wet carbon doors that are much cheaper and should help enough. Lexan door windows would help alot also. GTP products suck and it would be interesting to actually see how much weight their CF trunk saves...I doubt it's much. I reccomend the Varis CF hood ( www.varisusa.com) as it's great quality and very lightweight.

JDM 5-speed huh? It is going to be extremely hard to find.

Not many 5-speed Soarers in Japan either, so that makes it difficult already. But I don't have any info on the JDM 5-speed.

Do any of you guys have any info on the tranny? Want to know more about it now as I've NEVER heard of it being used in a US car.

so stock looking....yet under the hood, sooooo sexay! I plan on doing the same swap with a few bolt-ons....with that, weight reduction, and good suspension, the sc can be a hell of a car
