2jz swapped E60

Recommended Posts

 
 
Bought an E60 bmw over a year ago, eco diesel shitter, spent some cash on wheels, lows and a wrap, drove it for a bit like that
 
 
Then about 10 months ago got bored of the lack of poke, but M5 prices and unreliability meant one of those was a no go...... hence the 2jz transplant idea......
Building as much as i can myself, including mounts, manifolds etc and also tackling the headache of wiring too, but tbh, i thnk deleting the i-drive like i plan too and running a tablet instead connected to the Link G4+ storm will cure a lot of issue
 
Built for around 600 bhp out of the 2jzge motor, TT headgasket to lower comp, hx40 super turbo at about 1.6bar, 850 injectors, dizzy delete, cam and crank sensors, coil on plug etc
 
Engine and transmission mounts were pretty easy to knock up in an afternoon and my mate powdercoated them for £20 lol Using an E39 530D 5spd gearbox as the 6 speed that was in it pushed the engine forward quite a lot and the clutch/flywheel combo is around £500 cheaper too!! Will be using lengthened M5 prop, M5 diff and driveshafts for the rear end. The 3.6 diff ratio should make it fun
 
Currently waiting on the prop to return from modification and its onto mapping 3rd of march!!!
Few pics of the project.....

Well done sir :) 

ive a feeling you might upset the OCD OEM crowd for some reason.....

:lol:;) 

 

Ive a feeling there could be some butthurt about it, which is another good reason for building it, its even got a nissan radiator and a honda throttle pedal!!!!!!

600 ish to start with, run itlike that for a while, then go for everything the turbo can flow, around 750-780.....

Thanks people! Been around months getting to this stage and now the ends in sight theres about 12”+ of snow drifts outside so mapping postponed until next weekend now....arse!!!!!

So with the snow putting such a downer on things, decided to treat it to some new johnies....

9.5” wide upfront, 11” outback....should stand out a treat against the grey wrap B)

Been mapping today, lack of traction put an early end to it though, but the majority is there, just need to get it on the dyno to polish it up and crank the boost up to the 1.6bar it should be rather than 1.1bar its at now lol. Around 400-450bhp currently....
