Q from whitesn95
just curious, whats goin on here? lsx in a supra? if so what year?? cuz im really thinkin of doin a mk 3 supra next but dunno what all is out there for that swap
I'm swapping a 2001 LS! T56 into a nice 1983 Celica Supra,you might ask mikezohsix about an MK3 swap.
Pic of said MK2
mikezohsix, I'll send a PM regarding the milled flange, I've researched this option before-but disregarded it because I was concerned the header bolts would be stressed.
What if you use some header wrap. Maybe double wrap it near the joint. (and still use the factory heat shield.
I was thinking of an aluminum/reflective wrap and maybe a coating for the header.
I was in the "man cave" and did something I promised I wouldn't!!!!!
I moved the engine up about 1.5"!!!!!!!
I started this project with these rules in mind
1, keep the engine behind the sway bar.
2, keep the engine's crank pulley's bottom edge at or below the top of the sway bar.
3, make this a potential 50 state legal swap-using OEM parts for CARB legality.
I'll have to sell the engine as a CTS-V because the CTS-V headers don't have AIR like the Camaro does...
Now I'm just going to ignore rule #2, this new raised location still allows the engine to be behind the sway bar, but now it's above it about 1.5".
This location actually gives me a bit more clearance, It looks like I just needed to pull my head out regarding my rules.
I'll stil have to work in two Heim bearings to stabilize the (now four joint)steering shaft, the angle needs a little fine tuning to get it at or below 70 degrees-but it's doable.
