1jz+R154 = AED7000
2jz+V161/2= AED 15k

In all cases from where do you usually source spare/consumabe parts for these engines?

Yea ozi, you being the Genie! haha!

On a serious note, parts are sourced off some specialized+overpriced shops or online.

Common practice is to use fake/fabricated parts or just rape the engines till they give up and then swap in a new one.

Are you serious?

I read another post about a guy saying sr20 has no support here true so i guess you are, I just thought it was stupid. The sr20 would be the engine that has the most support world wide! What you guys dont have access to ebay u.s?


There are 2 schools of though on jap engines.

1, its a disposable razor. thrash and replace.

2, break and upgrade. There is soo much aftermarket support for any jap engine out there you seriously have to be on drugs to replace with stock part.


In all seriousness what sort of consumable parts are you talking here?

In regards to the trans, With this place being backwards and much less general knowledge on jap gear I would assume an rb25 or vg30 manual gearbox is not much more than the s15 6 speed?

Basically if you break the s15 unit I would be slapping one of these suckers in

Alternators/waterpumps/gaskets and hoses of all kinds/distributors/engine mounts/drive belts/bearings/tensioners/wirings, to name a few.. Certainly as hell you need these consumable parts if you plan to drop and operate a clean/genuine engine once in a lifetime..

Some people improvise and source locally or fabricate or jam some bullshit here and there which rapes the engine eventually.. But it seems hard to find people who would treat it here as a sane investment which would be to drop the engine and ensure it runs well and reliably on a long run... Otherwise it would be un-realistic to treat like 'disposable razor blades'.. Concern is there isnt room for such services/products as it seems the general demand is drop, destroy and then replace..
