Whyd you tell the pfc to go fuck itself?

That ducting confuses the shit out of me.

I thought I overheard something about AEM infinity?

Moving to AEM Infinity. It offers more of what I want (wideband control, CAN data ouput, higher resolution maps, etc) and after selling the PFC most of the cost is covered.

What's confusing about the duct? It's made from fiberglass paste and will force air through the cooler. Air was just hitting it and going around it before. I also added a fan to pull it through if the vehicle is at low speeds/not enough air is going through it. This should solve my high oil temp issue. Prolonged rips to 9000 rpm makes a lot of heat.

I think the picture is just confusing, i can see what's going on in the first 3, but then that last one it looks like there is no duct there, just a cooler chilling behind your vent.

either way, pretty cool, I've been thinking about learning how to fiberglass by making my own fan shroud

Yeah, what Ryan said, i cant see the ducting in the vent. And im confused on that blue square spongy looking material that was then wrapped with wooly mammoth fur.

I'm making a conscious effort for updating my thread. No more phone pics either. We'll see how long this lasts.

Jesus, maybe the 3rd time is a charm. This is a shit update, but whatever. It's the slow season and we need some content. After driving my car all of 4 days this last year, I decided I want more power, and reliable power. Forced induction was out of the question due to the work involved. (change cams, sleeve the block, pistons, etc. Basically starting over for a high strung engine.)

Instead, for my 2ZZ engine's replacement, I will be putting in a 2GRFE. This is the 3.5L V6 that Toyota sticks in nearly every car right now. Lotus uses it in the Evora and the Exige we don't get. I should see a ~80whp and 100wtq bump before I work on the next part of it all.

First things first, I bought a mount kit. I was offered this kit when I drove a MRS with this swap about a year ago. He also offered me a discount. Anyway, the search for the engine begins. Once I find the right one, I will be making the purchase. Tax return season is upon us and that should cover the SW20 turbo LSD trans that will mate to the engine.

Here's some cool media on the engine. No more 9000 RPM, but power is good.

Why swap in a k-series when he already had a motor that's on par with any K?

Besides, 2gr has almost 300hp stock

Stock K, yes. K has potential, but what I want is torque and a more stock engine. High strung 4 cylinders are cool, but there are better ways to make the power I'm after.

Also, the supercharger clears the engine lid.

Ah, gotcha. Didn't know you were looking for dat torque.

2ZZ is not even in the same planet as the K. Kevin's car is probably about equivalent with a stock K, and to make much more would probably have to go pretty crazy. With a K, you look at it and gain like 15 whp.

My buddy has an Evora S and it fucking rips! He put an exhaust on late last year and it sounded really great. Good luck with everything, Im sure you will over research and plan and build something cool.

Sweet! Gaining power the safe and smart way.

Out of curiousity, what is the weight difference between your 2ZZ and a 2GR?

The car ends up gaining about 50-60 lbs max. Monkey Wrench Racing did a 2GR swap into an Elise and the car weighed about the same, but they removed AC. I may try to keep it for the 'fuck you' factor.

Well, here it is. As many of you know, I spent my whole Saturday driving to the middle of nowhere for this thing. 16hrs later, I have an engine.

Y'all are about to get your 2GR learn on. The engine came from a 2013 Toyota Highlander with 18,000 miles on it. I walked out of there essentially stealing the engine from them. Came with an uncut engine harness, alternator, and MAF sensor. The engine has the OEM oil cooler, which was an option from the tow package.

I didn't grab the ECU because the next piece of my puzzle arrives on Monday. The next step for me is getting a E153 trans from a MR2 turbo or manual Camry V6. I'm trying to find one with an OEM LSD, otherwise I'll have to buy one of those and install it too.

Are you going to put it in the MR-S in stock form?

Yeah. I'm not opening a brand new engine. It's fine and makes a bunch of power. If I want more power, it will get some form of forced induction.

I will give rides to anyone.

The plan for this year is to run the 2ZZ with a new clutch. It's proven itself and I can hoard V6 swap parts while still getting seat time. I picked up an AEM Infinity 6 for running the 2ZZ this year, which will work on the 2GR next year. Next up is a clutch for the 2ZZ.

Since I take mediocre product pictures for a living, I snapped some nice shots of the 2ZZ in my studio today.

I had a vaporub humidifier that looked almost identical to that. Not that it's matters, but it kinda just popped into my head. Ha

Nicely done!
