Definitely still plan on producing, just playing it by ear if any real interest will be generated. I am working with someone for a total canbus solution that has 100% full integration and I have an adapter plate design ready to go. My personal installation was pretty easy but I want the total swap to be as painless as possible.

Here is the car's current look. I am still in the middle of producing a respectable looking hood. The car makes between 320-340whp on 11 psi and roughly 350ft lbs of torque. The car weighs 2822 fully loaded and has nearly 50/50 balance left to right and from front to back is the same as stock. I will have a video of this thing in action after the hood is done.

The engine came from a junkyard. It was stupid cheap ($240) It only needs to last long enough to complete all the trials I am putting it through because I want this build to be OEM spec strong (by Toyota standards) After that I might replace it with a fully built motor or an OE spec reman, either way I can get at least 5 years out of the 2az boosted and this is 5 years of intense use. The wastegate and BOV are both tial, the intercooler is from ebay, the oil cooling setup is G+. The engine management is a dual ecu configuration with AEM fuel and ignition management.

I re-purposed and modified some things designed for the fa20 to work with the 2az so it saved me some money.

I love these engines.. I wish they'd sit a little better in the engine bay though. I would have done this swap too.

why does the engine sit so high? Tony Angelo's sat completely under a flat hood.

Tony Angelo had a 4 speed dogbox transmission that was different dimensions than the stock trans and of course he modified the mounting of this transmission in the tunnel. Different driveshaft and so on. I did no cutting or welding. The motor literally sits in the same spot as the fa20. Its just 3 inches taller.

How did the adapter work with a stock 2ar flywheel and fa20 transmission? Did you have to machine the input shaft or what? What did you do about the fork/tob? Convert to hydraulic?

The motor I am running is a 2az-fe. I did not want the 2ar for various reasons. Availability, price, the fact that it has a plastic oil filter housing. I am using the stock clutch disc designed for the transmission input shaft and an act pressure plate designed for the motor as well as the stock flywheel for the motor. I have a hydraulic release bearing kit from Money Shift Racing, I just have not put it in yet. I'm going to wait until the stock release bearing gives up.The way I designed the adapter plate everything fits like a glove.

I have a custom hood that will cover everything up in a very elegant way.

Yea that was my mistype.

Normally an adapter plate adds distance between the donor engine and the stock transmission. Because of this, the splines on the input shaft don't fully fit on the clutch disc, and the end of the input shaft doesn't reach the pilot bearing. Usually this is accommodated by making a custom pilot bearing piece and a thickened flywheel.

As far as the clutch cylinder, I was having a major brain fart, thinking the cylinder mounted on the edge of the engine (which would require some consideration with a swap), and not on the transmission. I've pulled my tranny, so I should have known better.

Everything you said is correct. That's why I spent 6 months planning and 3 months executing.
