E46 M3 2JZ Swap update 3/1/13

Making some headway on the Swap. Turns out the E46 chassis is about 1″ shorter between the rear of the suspension crossmember and the firewall than the E36. You wouldn’t think 1″ would be an issue but considering the 2JZ installed in the E36 had at most 1.5″ of clearance in every direction having an inch less to work with makes things very tight.

With the Supra pan installed the oil return hard lines will need to be adjusted to connect to the original (Aristo) tee-fitting. The rear tube can be bent to fit, the front however needs to be cut and rewelded.

    I will be doing a 2JZGTE VVTI swap into an E46 as well.

    Will you be using the IS300 gas pedal to communicate with the DBW on the GTE? Or is it not neccessary?

    I am using a modified E36 pedal, and also modified the Toyota throttle body to accept a cable.
    I have been putting updates on my Neverfacebook Lift Garage facebook page if you want to check it out.

    Hello, I wrote you on your website, but figured I’d get a quicker response on here.

    You mentioned that you modified the 2j VVT throttle body to accept a cable. Why was this neccessary considering the 2j VVTI throttle body accepts a cable in stock form?

    Research tells me that one must use a IS300 throttle pedal because a sensor on the IS unit communicates with the GTE ETCS-S throttle body?

    I’m thinking about fitting an IS300 pedal in my E46 but IF I can just use an E46 cable pedal it would make things much easier.
