    What a shit box. With the prices of Z32s, if I see a crappy shell with a big rust hole like that one it'd be going in the bin.

    Jamie has parted out nicer, more structurally sound cars than that one without blinking an eye.

    In this episode the guys are test fitting the 2JZ engine into Earl Leeker's engine bay. Once inside the bay they can work out how the engine will need to be bolted into place in the Z's engine bay.

    Due to the 2JZ's longer block size, the engine sits way to far forward for the Z32's bay and so the guys plan to modify the bar alittle to make it reassembling the front of the engine possible and also use the rusted hole in the RH side wheel well as way to route the exhaust system out the side of the car.​

    The guys give the 2JZ engine a little bit of maintenance removing the top of the engine and checking things like the value seals and so forth. Once the engine is all back together we can get a sneak peek at the final engine layout in the bay which has also been slightly modified to make working on the engine in the future possible.​

    In this episode, jared reinforces the chassis frame near the new exhaust pipe he fabricated last episode. then he pulls the 2jz enigne out of earl and discovers crappy repair work done on the LH side chassis frame from a accident earl has had in the past. Jared then cleans and paints the engine bay in spray can black to complete the engine bay look the guys are going for.​

    In this episode, jared finishes off with all the 2jz enigne related jobs to do before putting it back into earl leekers engie bay perminately.

    First job to do is install the clutch and flywheel kit and then bolt the transmission to the 2zj block. Next is modifying the exhaust manifold to allow better airflow for the massive single turbo setup in the car and then bolt everthing together. And to finish off, jared fills the 2jz engine with enigne oil and installing the fuel pump and piping in the car.​

    In this episode, jared gets the 2jz engine fired up and idling on its own, he slices up the old 2jz wiring harness and strips it down to bare bones. He then jimmies the fuel pump system up to the engine harness and ECU and then fires the 2jz up.​
