Default Mid Engine 1jz/2jz project

I did some searches before posting, couldn't find anything on converting a 1jz or 2jz to a mid engine layout.

my question is can a 5sp solara tranny be mate with a 1jz or 2jz motor, so that it can be put into a mid engine design layout. are there other trannies that can be use for this purpose. thanks

I used an Audi 01e six speed box mated to a 2jz-gte. Costs ran +/- $1500 to mate the two. That included custom flywheel, custom adapter plate, custom clutch (3 pack), custom release bearing housing. I will be picking it up on Monday from the Engineering shop.

Car is based on Lambo Murcie but with my own tweaks. Side intakes added Celica headlights, Still have to pull the mold for the body and then do the body.

Here is my 2jz-gte mated to an Audi 01e 6 speed transmission.

Nice! Did you make that custom adapter plate yourself? If so, can you tell us anything about how you did it?

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.

Hi. No I did not. I had it made at an Engineering shop close by. New Engineering. They also made a custom flywheel and custom 2 pack clutch. (3 pack wouldn't fit and I did not want them to cut on the box itself. 2 pack is good for 1000bhp though)

My friend is doing my chassis here is a pic or two.

Cheers

I will have to post pics of the body later. First have to reduce the photos in size. They won't upload here.

Default Nice Set-up

Very nice power train. I actually found this by googling "2jz to 01e adapter". I was thinking about outsourcing this to BNC, but might just use your local engineering co. Did they indicate a rated capacity for torque, power, weight, etc.?

Is motor stock or built? Trans?

I'm in design mode right now, and both components seem to be just about bullet proof with the right mods.

Hi mate,

Motor is standard. I have already bought a Garret GTX35R turbo and will be using a local ecu (Dictator) to try and get to 800 BHP. Already bought a 100mm throttle body etc. Also LS1 coils.

Remember I am located in South Africa. New Engineering reckons the custom 2 pack clutch is good for 1000BHP. Not sure how the 01e would stand up to that though. What I have heard at the local race track is that I should not have any problems.

Cheers.

Yes, I read the clutch is rated plenty high but I have a nasty habit of installing clutches that are stronger than the assembly and snapping bell housing bolts and/or cv shaft bolts. (Just had to replace stock bolts on a4 fwd 1.8t 5sp running 25psi). From what I've read, the general consensus is that the 01e can take a 1000+hp beating and just as much torque. I was curious about the adapter itself...presumably it would have to be pretty thick to handle that much power and that assumes the load of a small car. My application is a heavy full size pickup. Many CNC/engineering companies here stateside shy away from this type of custom work citing "liability concerns".

Do you have a build thread started for this? I'd love to see it as it progresses.
