So my friend since I was 3 years old made the trip down to the japanese classic car show (JCCS) this year, even though his engine install was just finished the day they left and the car wasn’t completely ready for the show.
here’s the pics he sent me.
from what i can remember about the engine swap is that it’s a 7MGTE bottom end (mostly for the displacement and piston oil squirters.. and a few other bits) with the 5MGE pistons and head, therefore making it a 6MGE and the only real 6M part is the crank pulley. also worth noting is the 1uz throttle body and intake manifold that are all ceramic coated…
some of my info may be bad and seamus will most likely correct me.
from left to right here’s Pete’s 76? celica with a 7MGE motor (3L straight 6), steve’s ae86 corolla with a 1UZ (4L V8 from a lexus ls400), and seamus’s supra with the custom built 6M all on their way down from Canada to LA
first of all this is DKer Pete’s car! it got quite a bit of attention, I have found many pics of it online… be proud Pete
this so far is the only Pic of seamus’s supra i can find… i can tell because the exhaust tips and the white hood
I love these old landcruiser wagons… mostly because in Canada we got the Hino diesel with them.
once again less talk more pics… but i do want to say that the datsun guys really brought their game to the show this year.
These are the first pics I’ve seen yet of the JCCS meet and they are small and are rather cool…. a slightly “ratted” 240z that is completely tanked and is fully flush with those large flares.
Thanks to Dsalni’s Blog for the phone pics
