Nice.

May I suggest www.Rabidchimp.com and www.celicasupra.com/ to help your project flow a bit more smoothly.

were they going to scrap THAT???!!! :shock:

Well done for rescuing a piece of vintage Toyota :tu:

Dont worry about the engine for the time being; one will show up some time or later; In the meantime tend to the bodywork.

thank you guys, well as far as body work goes I am guessing that I will have to get someone who welds, I would love to do this all myself, but I have never welded. My extent of working on cars has only been replacing bearings, ball joints etc so this is def a project!

Changing a motor isn't too bad. You need to disconnect all the wires and hoses and fuel lines, unbolt the trans and motor mount and take out the radiator. If you can change a wheel bearing you can do this. You need to get yourself an engine hoist and leveler. I got mine on craigslist for $70 and a brand new leveler from Home Depot for $25. Occasionally Pep Boys will have sales on hoists and you can get them for like $150 with rebate.

5Ms and 7Ms are plentiful and cheap. This should be a fun project. Good luck!

Where do you live, ihateu3? I see you're in Ohio. I can let you borrow mine if you're nearby.

You said earlier you couldn't find info on JZ conversions?
JZA61's are probably the most common JZ swap this side of JZ-powered MX83's and JZZ20's down here in Australia
get yourself onto www.toymods.net and do a search for "JZA61", you should turn up heaps of info on the swap

what is a leveler? also I found a 7mge the next town over (not sure on price yet) but will all the vacuum hoses and wires hook up the same? I have started removing the motor but stopped on the wiring wondering how the new motor will tie into the old wiring

It helps keep the motor upright as you're hoisting it. Click the Home Depot link to see a pic.

I had the shop sandblast the old valve covers, u can probably see in some of the old pics just how oxidized they where, and they barely had any paint left on them. &nbsp;They cleaned up very well!<br> <img src="http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc242/ihateu1979/IMAG0119.jpg" alt="" title="" border="0"><br>I decided to paint them black with the raised areas in hot red, I think they came out great!<br> <img src="http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc242/ihateu1979/IMAG0120.jpg" alt="" title="" border="0"><br> <img src="http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc242/ihateu1979/IMAG0121.jpg" alt="" title="" border="0">
