How does it feel with a throttle cable? I read somewhere it has a stiff feeling to it.
You can open up the other side of the throttle body. The large plastic cover. Under there there are a bunch of gears. Remove the outer most gear so that the bottom gear no longer turns and it'll lighten up the throttle. I have a video on youtube coming out tomorrow "4/29/2019" regarding this. check it out

Hey guys been kinda dormant on here just basically reading, and doing research. My build is 95% complete just waiting for the driveshaft to turn key. I’m really just curious as to what most of You guys are using for a throttle cable on a NON VVTI 2JZGTE in an S13 240sx swap. Would really appreciate any solid info, I’ve done a lot of reading on this thread and I know the necessary length and I believe someone said a Toyota Tercel throttle cable, but I didn’t read anything definitive

So I'm gonna put this out there so nobody else makes the mistake I did. I don't know about the 2j manual trans, but for the auto trans make sure you attach your starter before putting the motor in your engine bay. Cause there is no room to feed the bolt at least the top hole. Bottom one I might be able to hammer the tunnel a little bit.



So just putting that out there for info so others don't make my mistake, of course I was thinking that I could just install the starter later. But jokes on me haha.


Also again for the guys running auto looks like you are gonna have to make your own transmission lines cause that stock hard line is not going to fit correctly.

so just giving a little info on the little things that are never told.

^ Easy solution:

Drill out your threaded starter holes and attach your starter with nuts and longer bolts from your local hardware store.

Bolts can now insert from the front side, and you can juuuuust squeeze a wrench and nut on the back side between the bellhousing and the firewall.

That’s what I did on mine (S13, 1J, R154)

Ok, did my first PDX Road Racing day, and I feel like I beat the shit out of the car, even compared to pro-am drifting.

Guys that do frequent track days, what trans fluid do you run in your R154? I feel like my Redline MT90 didnt hold up well.

Also, who all runs an oil cooler? What system do you have?

What's up Kyle!!!!!!!!

As you know, I don't rock a 2J... but I do run an HKS oil cooler (-10AN lines to GREX oil block). Works like a champ!

s14

I finally got my S14 2j road worthy and drove for an extended drive for the first time. I don't think I'm the only one but I know I'm one of the few with a 3.13 rear end in an S chassis. My tranny of choice is a V160. Here is some feed back: THESE DAM GEAR ARE LONNNNGGG!! Its no wonder Supra can go well over 200mph. I don't really need to shift into 6th gear until at least 80 Its dumb. Strongly considering changing to a 3.26 or whatever the ratio is in an auto 350z. The gears are just too long.

  1. Set crank timing gear to the dot mark (not line)
  2. Set intake cam to dot (not line. It's not stated in the Toyota manual if the cam needs to be rotated fully CW or CCW - I gather CW from research but need confirmation)
  3. Set exhaust cam to dot (not line)
  4. Install timing belt to finish

I've done the above before installing the timing belt cover and crank pulley because I want to see if the dots and lines line up. When doing this, the dots on both cams and the crank match up after rotating the crank. Also, all line marks on both cams and the crank line up. Is this right?
