guys ,

I need to know , does your altezza fuel gauge , water temp and oil press working?

Although i got a aftermarket water temp but my fuel gauge seems to be acting funny.. It only goes up but not down . The only way to get it down to where exactly my fuel is , is to unplug my batteries. Then it'll drop to where it is suppose to be but it'll stay there.. I heard something about lowering down the voltage to the meters if you are a 1j transplant , is it true ??

there is a lot of 1jz vvti versions from the jzx100?????

there is only 1 version. the 1jzgte vvti jzx100(single turbo) and yes this will be suitable

you can put in the old jzx90 1jzgte non-vvti(twin turbo) as well.

According to my research, ABS pump, ECU & battery position is different from altezza.
Altezza's ABS have 2 types, I would prefer to use back the JZX100's ABS but its located at the other side of the engine bay.

Great to know that, I need more info on 1JZ. Actually I've already done the conversion, but its a 1JZ-FSE. Now planing to smack in a manual gbox.

According to my research, I think the JZX110 is more suitable, but the major problem is no one actually brings in. Too new & expensive I reckon.

Green: U shouldn't have delete your post, I would like to explain & learn more. Between 1JZ-FSE & the GTE is a different technology. My only concern is the fuel consumption

But anyway like I said, like I said i'm just doing some research.

I'm not sure, thats why i'm asking around for answers.
But I've discovered there are few things JZX110 & SXE10 share in common, such as:
- ABS pump
- Battery
- ECU

As for JZX100 ECU located inside the dash, unlike the JZX110 ECU position is just plug & play.

I might be wrong, but do correct me if i'm wrong.

Please refer to the picture below.

your pictures showing 1JZ-GTE and not 1JZ-FSE.
1JZ-FSE is the 'economy' version (eg.3SG v 3SF)
If running well why want to change manual gearbox or mod some more???

I showed the 1JZ-GTE picture because we are comparing between the JZX100 & JZX110 not the FSE

any thoughts on whether it would be feasible to get a manual half-cut 1jz now to restore/tinker about for future use, i.e. just take out the engine and refurbish it without using in a car? supplies of 1jz should be dwindling soon...

storage not a problem, and since it's half-cut bound for refurbishing, some repairs are expected. also more the reason to find the better ones faster before all gone...

so.. if i want a near-to-perfect plug & play 1jzgte dual-vvti into altezza,
i should target those from jzx___ which code?
if not mistaken, for 1jzgte with vvti, only JZX100 and a few JZX110 has it...JZX90 is the twin turbo non-vvti 1jzgte

Hi all sifus,

Thinking of getting a Altezza & plan to transplant 1JZ VVTI turbo on it. Need you guy's information on below.

1. Is the engine mounting all plug & play for 1JZ conversion? Or all engine mounting need to modify?
2. Is the gearbox plug & play or need modification?
3. How about the real axle? Need to modify or plug & play?

Thanks...

yes , the wiring is very complicated and is not easy , must have the diagram , even if you have it must need a very experience wire men to understand the icon and the colour code .Mine is JZX171. JZX 100 and this JZX 171 the different is the throttle body . JZX 171 is DBW, where else the JZX 100 is not DBW.

As for the question 1 n 2 , some use JZX 100 mounting and some use altezza mounting
Gear box is just relocation only and rear axle some use bk altezza and some use JZX 100.

For your info , is not easy , so , you plan well before you transplant .

interesting....but whr are u gonna find a rear wheel drive oriented 3sgte engine? changing the tezza into a front wheel drv is a stupid idea.

i believe you can also try the idea on any rear wheel drive car...not necessary toyota

Hi yen 187,

just wondering whether 1JZ parts are easy to source be it from chop shop or new...
would definitively prefer new...( Well , lets just say its not very difficult to find parts at chop shop and also depand what parts you looking for. New parts is no problem but have to wait say 2 months to arrive from japan )

Power vice should be hovering around 210 to 220 hp and the torque is around 30 +- in std stock . This is on wheel dyno .Its also depand on what car you transplant too......power, weight , ratio. The lighter the car , the higher the reading you get.

Anyone would like to correct my statement please do so........

1j vvti or non vvti generally are easy to find, problem is most of them are auto. Like stepwyew said, new parts can be obtained too. So no worries, but fitting it into an altezza is another story :-)

yen, Toyota's in general are low maintenance. Sure there will be some wear and tear to repair, my formula is purchase the car at a reasonable price but set aside at least 6k on repairs and wear and tear.

So far my 'investment' has been ok, aside form the gearbox issues, money spend on 'refurbishing' is still below the 6k (after gearbox it will be close to 5k+ as i am still looking for cheaper options)

is there a 1j altezza for sale? did not notice it...

Hey Tez1j owners, I got a question and wonder if any one has some experience on this matter.

Recently, during full throttle at roughly about 5000-6000RPM the engine sorts of experience a fuel cut which also triggers the engine check light, however shortly after releasing the throttle the light disappears and i can continue flooring it... happens on my 2nd and 3rd off and on.

I suspect it could be my crank sensor getting faulty, planning to go to VISION this weekend to plug in the diagnostic machine to read the error codes. But any feedback or advice is welcome. TQ

Sorry to ask Ahle, but are there major differences between the 1jz vvti in the JZS171 compared to earlier models such as JZX100? I am interested but just worried there are complicated wiring issues etc.

Thanks
