Veldin's 2014 Subaru BRZ 2JZ GTE vvti build thread (Now with prices)

03/19/2018:

Hello everyone! Another build thread here...

I'm going to be 2JZ GTE vvt-i swapping my 2014 BRZ (21k miles on it). Power goals are somewhere between 500 and 800. It's a broad range because initially I want to stay on the lower end of the spectrum. But once i'm comfortable with everything i'll be turning it up and letting her eat.

Currently I am just gathering parts. My friend Eathen will be lending a hand with things that require a second set of hands, otherwise I plan to do almost everything by myself. We are doing all the work in Eathen's garage because he has much more room than I do.

I will try to document as much as I can but I'm usually more oriented on just getting stuff done rather than stopping to smell the roses.

If you have any questions about your 2JZ swap in an 86 platform please feel free to message me. If you have questions regarding pricing or aren't set on doing the swap yet, don't message me. Don't even do the swap unless you have $40k to blow or more.

Some honorable mentions for this project are:

Pure Automotive Performance - These guys hooked me up with my MoTec 130, plug and play harness, trans and engine mounts, radiator, exhaust manifold, CD009 trans, Maverick trans adapter kit, Spec twin disc, etc etc. I got most of my stuff here and for great prices too. They took most of my money lol

A Star Fabrication - This is a local company that sold me most of my head components including cams, valves, and valve springs. They will be assembling the head as well.

eBay - Got most of my OEM toyota parts on eBay for cheaper than anywhere else online. Genuine oem parts for the best prices, what can I say, eBay is old faithful to me. I always buy stuff on here and sometimes sell stuff as well.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10/24/2018:

I wrote some BS here about how this whole thing is fitting into my budget, that was 8 months ago... now i'm about double what I intended on spending so F me lol. For those of you who want to swap a BRZ, run away. Go buy an s2000 and LS swap it or something, or buy an is300 and build the 2jz up in that! I absolutely regret not buying a Gallardo or GT-R instead of doing this swap.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11/xx/2018:

Taking a long break during winter on this and bringing the car home to hibernate. Eathen needs the space in his garage to work on some cars and make some money. I'm sure he will do plenty while my car is gone so I don't mind one bit to tow the car out and tow it back in at a later date. There is no reason for me to spend so much energy and extra money heating a garage when I can just finish this when it warms back up. I'm in no hurry.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
03/27/2019:

The car is back at my buddy Eathen's house and I will start wrenching on her soon! For those of you wondering, still heavy regrets about not buying a MK4 supra, GTR, or something equivalent. This build costs too much and is too much effort as a whole for 1 person. I don't care what type of fun I will have with it, it's very likely after it's buttoned up and running, that I try and sell it. I don't really regret tackling the job myself, I just regret not going with my gut and buying something already pretty fast. I wanted to prove to myself I could do this though, and so far i'm on the right track.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
05/21/2019:

Plodding right along here, installing some finishing touches. Sometime next month, the car should be ready to fire up for the first time. It's exciting!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
08/16/19

Super close to firing up. Not nearly as quick as I originally intended due to little things here and there taking entirely too long. I have to add fluids and run the wiring harness and it should be ready to fire up for the first time. Maybe another week or 2 since I have other stuff going on as well and my wedding's coming up in October.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
09/02/19

Car turns over but does not start. Working on uploading a revision to the M130 ecu. Fuel pressure is good and no leaks present. Should start really soon.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9/23/19

The car starts! I drove it around the block on just the basemap and everything seems to be working great. Clutch engages well, gears shift smoothly, no weird noises, etc.

One of the first and biggest questions people ask is how much money did everything cost me. Once I say the number, everyone has an opinion about how I paid too much or they are confused as to how it could possibly cost so much. So I have taken the time to organize this spreadsheet of everything done to my car. This does not include labor on anything since I did about 99% of the work myself.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing

^The prices listed in this spreadsheet are all what "you should expect to pay" if you are doing a similar build. This is not indicative of what i've spent but I will say my total is close to $42k on all everything listed. Meaning I saved myself some money in certain areas. Others may save more, or less than me but as i've said before. If you want a properly built car that makes decent power, expect to spend $40k ish on top of already owning a BRZ. And that is assuming you can do all of the work yourself.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10/30/19

The car is being tuned currently. At 15psi on 93 octane is totally destroys the high performance 265's on it in 2nd and 3rd gear. We will do some more fine tuning but the next big thing is to get a better tire on the car. Once I go with e85 in the Spring and really start adding more boost it's going to be a shit show. I'm thinking NT555R in the rear but I will update the thread once I make a purchase.

Thanks for tuning in.

The picture I got of the 2jz GTE vvti in the shipping yard somewhere in Cali


Finally got the engine delivered and unwrapping it




Finally got it on the picker and then remove the crappy auto trans


An hour later it's on the engine stand, where it will spend it's life for the next month

The next day I started taking off the intake manifold and exhaust manifold



Couple hours later






Cleaned up all the pistons really well and put some oil in there


This is how the BRZ sits now. It's on the lift, engine ready to come out, I just have to disconnect the transmission.



Taking the trans out





Of course the motivator...

Got the engine out yesterday, now moving onto more fun things!


This thing below is the biggest pain in my ass. Highly understated on other threads, be prepared for days of grueling labor getting this out!

I've genuinely never turned a wrench on a 1jz or 2jz before in my life. I am coming from a 750whp evo.

It's stock and not for sale but could be tempted with a trade for a BRZ lol.

As I read my original post, saw it would be seen this way!

Meant this is not the first time you have played in the deep end of the mechanical modification pool.

Oh, you are correct. This is definitely not the first time . And I have both a TIG and MIG welder of my own which i've been using for quite some time. So fabrication isn't an issue, even though I won't need to do much aside from exhaust for this build, thanks to the guys at Pure Automotive Performance.

Hi everyone I am Eathen, I will be helping Veldin with his build, I am little late to posting, but I made it to the first page right? Hope everyone is excited to see the progress made throughout this build. This build will have its struggles and we will keep you updated along the way, because why not? Maybe one day some of you will want to venture on this road. This picture was the a few weeks ago before the BRZ started its new life on the lift.. Enjoy the build and be sure to subscribe!





Cheers,

Eathen
