    Firstly i must apologize if a thread of this nature already exist, but i am having issues finding information on the topic.

    As the title says I have intentions of mating a 1JZ GTE head with a GE block.
    I am trying to find a thread but can anyone tell me is there any main differences that would not allows for this to work? Finding a replacement motor for my MA61 seems to be a pain and i am getting a damaged 1JZge for little to no money and would like to know if the block can be used. If not can someone tell me if the 1J VVTI block can work?

    Thanks to every and anyone who helps me with information.

    Did you ever find an answer to your question?
    Im currently considering importing a tourer S chaser since its much cheaper than a tourer V but obviously would like to turbo it, so any info you got that could help would be appreciated.

    There's a pile of info out there online just have to do some reading of threads. You have a distributor so depending on what path you take there's a bit of fuckery involved. Go through YouTube there's all sorts on there too

    It's the same deal.as the 2j. If you have a gte head and a ge block. The non vvti ge rods are the same as non vvti gte rods.
    If your asking these questions It's unlikely you'll be pushing anything beyond what it's capable of tbf so just send it.

    As for the distributor you can buy kits to delete it do some googling It's all there.

    As for manifolds on the 1jzge I'm not sure if they are are same as the 2jge head. Maybe buy gaskets to compare as they are pretty cheap.

    I've 2 crestas with 1jzge non vvti engines I'll be looking to make turbo in the very near future.

    With the increase in JZ prices, any JZ block that is good is worth keeping and putting together.

    I've confirmed part numbers match ge/gte rods in the non vvti. The pistons are high comp in the ge but I'll be using a Standalone on each engine so thats not a problem. I may go ahead and buy a 2jzge exhaust gasket like you said to see if I can run a 2jzge non V up-pipe. Otherwise its going to be a swap to a supported head.

    Other parts I figure would just be to cap the dizzy location for coil on plug and get a gte oil pump for crank sensor and get one of the many cam sensor kits available. Everything else is butter after a COP conversion.

    Prp do a dizzy delete for ge heads. At current prices I'd just make the ge head work. By the time you change heads pay for it etc it'll cost way more

    2jzge exhaust manifold gasket matches 1jzge vvti and non vvti heads.

    So any 2jz NA+T turbo kit should bolt up no problem. This makes this conversion a very real possibility, which I will be moving forward with! Thanks for your help!
