Check for boost/vacuum leaks. You could also try cleaning the injectors and changing the fuel filters. Those are the basics...if you get that all done and it's still lumpy, please check back.

Just curious - any update? Still hoping it isn't the 'magic smoke' that makes it go, up until it gets released (then of course, there's no way to reverse the process, which is what makes that smoke...

The white smoke could also be a damaged piston...I'd suggest a compression check? You'd think oil would burn blue, but I've seen this too many times, unfortunately...the bad smoke is very white.

Although I'm not 100% sure about how the JDM ecu reacts to having the cats removed, but worst case I believe it should only throw an ecu code...which should mean you won't pass emissions. Based on...

I don't know the GE that well, but hopefully it's got enough in common with the GTE for me to help. On the GTE, there's an ecu that controls the...

Good luck with the modifications!

Most likely your current drive shaft won't fit. I believe that the length of the TT auto transmission is different from the length of the N/A auto transmission.

You'll need the 2jz-gte itself (of course), the ecu and primary wiring harness from a LHD (US) Mkiv TT. You'll also need an ignitor, and a resistor pack.

Overall, the fix is quite easy, and it is relatively inexpensive.

The least expensive part is replacing the cam cover gaskets - you'll need to use Toyota's form-in-place gasket (aka 'FIPG') to...
