so will your stock dash/body harness plugs right into those 2 plugs? or will that need to be changed up?

looks clean

It'll plug right into the existing pickup body plugs. He took the 1993 body plugs and put them on the RZ harness, and moved the pins around to where they need to be. The dealer installed cruise control should work too. It's just a wire that runs under the dash and splices into SP1(speed sensor).

This is to plug the front dipstick tube. It's a really tight fit Dorman 555-007

I found the part number on Darins swap page  http://www.2rzturbo.net/?p=77


I'm renaming my build to 'nickle and dime'



I finished the air intake. Tapped in a 3/16 vac nipple for the fuel regulator. I put it close to the throttle body so hopefully that's cool. My friend pulled that KN filter off a GTR lol  :yupyup:

I have a list of things to do, but it's freezing! I plan to build custom battery cables this weekend.

Here's what I did to the fuel feed line. I used a rope pulley to bend the line over towards that stud with the cushion clamp on it. I bent it right after where it sits in that factory line bracket. It isn't kinked and it has plenty of clearance from the torsion bar. It's also over 5" away from the exhaust pipe as well which seems to be considered safe.



It'll run right up behind the block in that gap. Once we pull the engine back out I'm going to cut the fuel return line and run it right next to the feed.

I figure in that off chance the trans ever travels far enough to pinch the rubber fuel line, it's rubber so it won't kink permanently. However, the trans and engine can't move that far unless something really bad happens AND I ordered the boss hoss Marlin trans mount which will definitely hold the trans snug in place  :thumbs:

I got the battery cables completed today. I went to a local marine/boating store. They have all the different sizes of supplies and they have a work bench with crimper so you can cut and build your own cables in the store. The prices were good enough that I could easily build cables that are far superior to stock Toyota cables for about $65 bucks.

OEM Tacoma ground to block, starter positive cables are #6 which I upgraded to #4 cable. The smaller shield ground was a #12 and I upgraded it to #8

Marine cable is tinned copper so it has extra corrosion resistance. The cable lugs are also heavy tinned copper which is an upgrade over stock Toyota. I also used adhesive lined heat shrink.


Completed cables


Starter positive will be routed like this with clamps to hold it. I didn't mess with the alternator positive but I may do that one later on. It's a long cable that comes from the fusebox, hits a junction on the inside of the fender and then is fed down to the alternator.

I bought me a real radiator! CSF 3 core :usa:

That's a large radiator. It's almost twice the size of the stock one yet somehow fits perfect and the hood shuts and everything.



Pulled the engine back out so to test fit the custom oil pan. We're gonna try stabbing it here shortly...  :crazy:

Using the stock rz hoses upper and lower. The lower one needed trimmed at the engine side.

Did a test fit with the custom Northwest TeamYota pan this morning and it's gonna work!

Shimming the engine brackets is mandatory. There's no way it would've fit had we not shimmed the engine back that 1/2"

The steering stabilizer does not fit with this pan, but this is what we're gonna do. I think we may custom make an aluminum spacer instead of these plastic ones, but with a good grade 8 bolt it should work out ok...i think.



Here's a couple shots of the oil pan fitment. It actually clears the IFS diff like a champ. We have it bolted to the trans and engine mounts to make sure we know it fits at the engines final resting position.





turbo oil drain going in later.



I guess the point is that this is the final stretch. Should be able to start it in the next week or even days if I bust enough ass.  :crazy:

Man, I'm trying to get it done. It's almost ready to go back together for the final time.

It's now the 'Texas Edition RZ Pickup'. I've envisioned these Tacoma wheels on it for about 2 years ever since I first found the truck sitting. Definitely my favorite truck wheels ever, and they're light. Center bore on these 4x4 trucks is same as the 6 lug Taco 106mm. I can't believe how hard that info was to find on the internet.   :dunno:

Knocked out the fuel return as well. I think this is going to work out good.



This is just showing how the fuel return crosses back over the other line. It's close but won't touch

I found these cable tie mounts at the boat store today. They stick really well if you remove the paint and wipe it down with acetone.

Anyways, I'm going to try this routing here. I won't use the entire length of firesleeve on either line.

Keep you air pressure up and rotate those tires often.  You will smoke the edges quickly no matter what, but you can stay ahead of the wear a little.

I did think about it. Only thing I see is running those lines down the driver side might put them close to the exhaust and converter down that side of the truck. You want to try and keep the fuel lines 5"+ away from exhaust if possible.

Fuel lines are done. I cut the firesleeve shorter. I also made a heat shield for the brake lines along the frame rail. I cut one of the old factory metal heat shields and covered it with adhesive backed high temp reflective shielding. I was able to use 2 of the unused tapped holes in the frame to bolt it to.

Ha! Plan is to drop it in and get it running this weekend. That means fabbing up the exhaust too so it'd be a ton of work. Might not be until next weekend.
