Default 1uz 7/900

Does anybody know someone or a forum member on here that has a 7/9 series with a 1uz in it? Would be cool to chat with them personally about the swap. I searched but only found like a dozen bench racing type posts, nobody who actually owned the motor let alone had it installed.

Picked up a 97 LS400 for $500, runs and drives but the guy bent up the front end pretty good. Just trying to figure out what to do with it now...

Thanks.

I'm building one right now. 1UZ, 80lb Deka injectors, custom microsquirt based ECU, E85, single ebay turbo. Hooked to BMW 420G 6 speed. Have the motor (actually several of them), fabbed the trans adapter. Need to rip the car apart and stuff it in there

If you are just going to stuff it in there with the factory ECU and trans... what else do you need to know? The oil pan won't work since 1UZ from LS400 is front sump. You can buy a steel rear sump pan on ebay for $350. Should work. Are you staying autotragic?

Hey there.

It will stay a stock motor, and will be mated to a 5 speed trans out of a KA 240sx. What vehicle is yours going into? I can get a rear sump sc400 pan for free locally, but was curious about how it may fit even with the rear sump pan.

The SC400 pan is really more of a "mid sump". Def won't work without serious mods (ie probably fabbing a new sump). If you cut the sump in half it might fit. I have one in the garage. This was the direction I was going to go before I decided to just make a custom steel pan. Buy this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Toyota-Lexu...YAAOSwCxdaroCk

Mine is going into my 740 SE.

Darn, was hoping to get away with the SC pan. Any interest in making me a pan? Have you got motor mounts made yet?
