Hi, great project.

Interesting you used the IS300 rack. We tried a range of racks and all were a bit too long and induced bump steer. This ended up with us aborting a 1UZ conversion. May need to source one of these and have a play again.

Thanks guys for kind words.

I am not happy with the radiator and it will be replaced with much bigger one before the car hits the road.

One of my requirments were to have power steering as well as R&P on this car because driving without one would not be pretty. :D

What I am hating right now is the need to replace the whole dash in order to have everything work for this new ECU and engine meaning all the guages would have to be from the same car which will not fit my original dash face :td:

Thank you and I am very impressed with all the work you are doing on RX3 :tu: , Yeah all the stuff is in there and we didn't even have to cut firewall at all. I wish somehow they could also fit AC in there too.

Don't have to do that at all. One of the speed sensor outputs on your auto can be converted to a cable speedo drive (using bits from an earlier A340 auto) and then use an aftermarket pulse generator to generate pulses as required for the ECU, not dissimilar to this sort of thing.

The water temp sensor and oil pressure switch from the original engine should screw into the 2JZ. You'll need to extend the water temp wire and you'll need to reroute the oil pressure switch wire to the other side. In my Mk2, I ditched the clock and mounted a TA22 tachometer. This has a variable resistor in it and is easily calibrated to a 6 cylinder rather than a 4.

Looks good man. Where did you find that? I might need to get one a little ways down the road. Do you have it installed yet?
