I've got a 264 the same color I believe, and it is about to be parted if you want the boot?

Finally glad to see pics of it, will look great when done!

I'll cut and polish it, see how it comes up. I would take it regardless if you were a little closer!

Got the car back an my FR17's on, not sure about the 2JZ anymore, tossing up between that or a B230FT...

b230 ftw..

2jz Ftw!

SBC Ftw!
You guys have got crazy performance stuff for small block chevys over there! Im Jealous.
I almost bought an aluminum SBC block from a guy I know in Sydney but it never panned out.

This is a cool project I say do something different either 2jz or SBC or even SBF but a B230FT is cool just not unique.
I like the wheels:)

meh, SBC/SBF/SBR is a dime a dozen over here, in everything from cortinas to countaches

Thats cool it was just a suggestion Im sure whatever you do it will come out great.
SBC are pretty much dime a dozen everywhere in the world but there still cool in a 240 they just fit so well.

problem here is that with new laws you can't install an engine with more than 2 or something times the displacement from stock :(

I'm getting reeeally tempted to put an LS1 and T56 into an early 240, that would be a unique project down here unless somebody has beaten me to it!
