how to 2JZ an FC
« on: December 21, 2015, 08:48:52 PM »
Figured id share this build here as ive been creeping around this forum for a few years scheming up this build until i graduated from school. My goal was to build a silly street car for "drifting purposes" on the weekends. I will also be doing everything by myself and learning along the way. Im into aggressive styling and take alot of influence from the japanese time attack scene. I refuse to let this become another build that never gets finished on here so please hold me to that

Sooo since this is my most frequented forum and all of a sudden all these sweet RX7 build threads have appeared i decided to join the party! so quick rewind back to last year to get caught up.

searched for months for a clean platform with one goal in mind. but more on that later.
picked this minty girl up easter 2014 with 92K miles on it. sorry for the poopy pics, these were all taken before i had a real camera LOL

PHOTO DUMP DUE TO PHOTBUCKET FUCK UP.



















CD009 VS Stock NA 5 speed size


Trans mounts removed from chassis using a spot weld drill bit.

Mock up of radiator, intercooler, and oil cooler. The fab shop used the existing mounts i made in this picture and then reinforced everything and added bracing so this is the general location of everything for reference. Radiator is a mishimoto SR13 with their dual slim fan setup. Intercooler is a CX racing unit.









Street faction bashbar


Exhaust tacked up and mock up of intake and some other stuff.

At some point i tore the car back apart, raised the suspension as high as it would go, and then shipped it to Dallas where i would be moving. Arrived at my new place


Waiting for room to open at the fab shop, i wrapped all my interior plastics in carbon fiber


Car came back from getting intercooler piping, water hardlines, trans mount, and some other small stuff. I was happy with the work that late apex fabrication and race prep did.










As i requested, they chopped the excessive mounts and lowered the engine close to another inch in the front. This allowed it to clear the stock hood with the skeleton cut when using a stock ignition setup.

Cool swap.  I liked the car better with the stock body and aero. Your diffuser flat skirts and lip looked good. Its your car though so do what you like.

I was thinking the same thing as I was scrolling down the pictures. Maybe the finished product will look different though. Nice swap!

Nice progress. That thing is low!

I agree on the aero pieces. I don't get what the draw is to those drift body kits than flare out at the bottom and make the car look like it is wearing a skirt. It seems like they would just hit more stuff while drifting?

Interested to see how this tuns out.
