Big Mike, I hate to correct the guru on this board, but the 5mge motor is a straight six, not a v6. Most people think this because it has 2 valve covers, but I can assure you they are a straight configuration.
I like the idea of a 3RZ-FE kit... However why not make 3RZ-FE to 22R-E bolt in engine mounts like Bevin designed? They'd not be any more expensive to produce and could be sold for the same price. While we're at it, come up with a bellhousing to mate the 3RZ to a R150F and/or R151F tranny.
Personally, I've seen well maintained 3rz's still running great without a rebuild at 365k miles +. Try getting any M series engine to do that. You'll be replacing that headgasket so fast it will make your head spin - not to mention all the oil leaks associated with an old engine and an even smaller engine bay to make things hard to work on it. Don't forget that the longer crank in the M series is more prone to cracking just by being longer, then you add the extra stress of 'wheelin to the motor and you are just asking for trouble. Why not have a more reliable toyota engine on the trail. Sure we can all fix Birfs on the trail, but who brings enough parts and tools to swap out a crank or replace a headgasket? Just my
you can pickup a a low milage 2rz for around $400-$500 here.I have been checking www.car-parts.com for prices.
Anyone know anything about the 1G-GTE?Here's one with everything:http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/JDM-Toyota-Supra-GA70-1GGTE-1G-GTE-M-T-Turbo-Engine-Set_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33615QQitemZ8029597971QQrdZ1Looks like the same w bellhousing.Yup w58:Specs:? 1G-GTE DOHC 4 85-90 1988* 210HP@6200 203FTLB@3800 75 75 8.5:1? Japan SupraLittle more pep than the 7mge.So far that's about the best JDM motor setup I have seen to get besides having a whole car to get the parts off of.As long as the 5mge mounts would work with it would work in theroy.
