1JZGTE 2.5 Twin Turbo Swap Into an '87 Supra
The 1JZGTE out of the JZA70 Supra and a few other JDM cars is a great swap option if you have an MA70 Supra, or any M-series engine stock, for that matter. This engine makes 280hp stock, and responds very well to upgrades!
A nice front clip was chosen for this swap
Pulling the engine...
There's no better time than now to do a full reseal and timing belt replacement,
not to mention a new clutch!
Let's get this old engine out of here!
With the pre-'89 Supras, the crossmember has to be swapped for an
'89 or newer so that
Engine parts all polished up...
Dr Tweak strikes again!!! MUAHAHAHAA
Engine going in...
Ready to run
While we're at it, why don't we build a
custom 3-inch, stainless-steel, mandrel-bent exhaust system?

Here's what Andy had to say:
Cost wise, the swap was more than I had expected but considering how it turned out, well you just have to drive it. Overall, I am very satisfied with his workmanship. I mean a 1JZ Twin Turbo engine, what a ride you sure took me and my wife when we first drove it.
Thanks Doc. "
