    What is the Best bang for buck on an engine swap in a 2 litre chaser?

    Few options I'm looking at are

    Om606 super turbo diesel

    1uzfe vvti / 3uzfe

    1jz /2jz

    Any other options to consider and gearbox options

    I'm also doing a swap in my mark2 gx100, considering the price of jzx100s I found doing the 1jz swap was alot cheaper!
    Removed the slow but reliable 1g-fe and bought myself a front sump 1jzgte vvt-I complete package including ecu, i/c and maf from a 171.
    The changes I made were
    Jzx 100/1jz engine mounts
    Walbro 500 Fuel pump
    Jzx 100/1jz radiator
    Just in need of a bellhousing to run the w series gearbox
    The only thing I'm concerned about is the body loom wiring!
    Engine is going in tomorrow so will keep it posted
    All in all cost around 7k including car.
    Hope this helps in a way
    Cheers Corez

    I think you'll need a full loom, id have just paid the bill if i wanted a JZX100. These swaps never just go straight in ha!

    Good luck mate!
