Hi folks, miss me? I am back here with a little low buck Pro Touring project to have fun around.
This is my secondary project as my primary is my Dodge Dart big block so you guys know that this can be sold at any moment for the right $$$$.

Sweet! I just picked up an 85 hatch myself. What are your plans for it right now? Looks like a nice start.

Welcome back to the yota front. I like seeing your builds when you were on 3tcgarage and toyota3tc.

Looking at budget and availability...
I think i am going with a 1jz i got laying arround for quite a while, and mate it to a W58 trany, thats why i am looking for a bellhousing for a JZ and W58,

I do some thinking and swapping a LS1 take too much front X-member modification and R&P relocation, and this is intended to be a low buck project, so the Powerplant will be a 1jzgte for now,

And i know u guys are happier i keep it in the Toyota family.

I am having second toughs now on power plant choice and i am tinkering the option of leaving the 22r but made it TURBO, i got everyting here to do so, and the only thing i need is to rebuilt the existing engine, i don't want a race car, i want a nice street car with about 300 to 375 hp and i think the 22r can do that if i turboed it.

What u guys think?

I would say turbo the 22r. Less work and less cost I would assume and it could keep the handling at factory-ish instead of front heavy.

Looks like a nice project. What do you plan to do with your original seats? My RA64 could use a refresh, and it is 100% impossible to find parts around here.

Well, if we can find out how much shipping would cost, and give me a price for the seats themselves, pm me and we can try to figure out a deal!

Sounds good so far. Curious how this will turn out.

Not sure on the boat anchor comment. Most motors, in the right hands, can get some good power. Just have to take your time and do the research.

Thanks, in Puerto Rico we are inovators, and that is why we got the fastest imports in the world, fastest 3tc, fastest G54B, fastest 13b, fastest 20b, fastest K24 Honda, fastest 2rz (Paradise Racing) yeap he is Puerto Rican, the fastest Sr20det, the fastest VG30DETT, the fastest Hiunday, should i keep going cuz i can,

And i have been involved and work hand in hand with most of the engine builders of many of those record holder guys with other builts and have my own builds before and i dont go by other build guys that does not go the extra mile to find out what break and at what level of abuse, we do that and most of my builds i use custom grind cams to my specific specs, that my cam supplyer do not reveal to anyone without my permision, this is dedication, i will take my experience in the G54B starion engine that is the closest thing to the 22r carasteristics and put it to work and i know for sure it will work and 100% positive that with my goal of 350 HP is more than proven i can do it,

Who in the hell would think a 3tc engine will reach 780WHP with stock block, head, crankshaft, flywheel, and rocker arm setup, and yes we do that in a team of guys in PR and the car is running 7.80 in the 1/4 mile with a 28x10.5W tire on a stock chassis extreme TE72 car,
So this built will be a walk in the park for me i am 100% sure about it.

dont forget the other similar motors like the ka24 and 2.3L ford. i am kind of lost on what your planning here now though. we're talking all out now when you did say before that you are looking for a nice streetable car w/ ~300hp and not a racecar. also if you're looking for anything for that car i have heaps of old school jdm goodies from the gttr build left over and tons of coupe parts and some 22r race stuff i'm not using

300 HP is no race engine for me, that is a nice hi performance daily engine IMO, you can list what you got and i can choose what can i use if you got something i can use i wont hesitate to buy it, for the right price!

By the way i want to tell you; no hart feelings we just get carried over, at least that how i feel.

let me know what you need and i'll see what i've got. most of the stuff i have is 85+ so if you're using an 84 or older block i wont have much unless you went carb
