    1uz86

    Welp, a friend's '96 LS400 was tboned but the engine was intact and this gave me an idea.

    How much would it cost a shop to fabricate engine mounts, headers, and drop a 1UZ with a W58 with adapter plate on with all the fixins? 10K-15K?

    I know there are some members here with this setup.

    I'm not as mechanically inclined as you guys and the thought of pushing a cherry picker in my garageless backyard and having it be stuck on the grass is an nightmare, I wish I had the know how to tackle it myself.

    mounts and adapter plates already exist. modify stock manifold or ebay headers to suit. likely 10G at a shop provided you didnt lift a single finger. 2G if you do it yourself.

    In Toyota, we rust.

    Too bad it wasn't a 97 1uz.

    I'd say 15k easy if you want to build the car properly. You have to worry about replacing like every last thing on the ae86 to be able to handle a V8/stop/not break constantly.

    Honestly I just did this swap and wouldn't do it again. Too much money for not a very good result. You just end up with this weird abomination that is nothing like an AE86.

    To each their own. I wish I could go back and put that money towards something cooler and faster. Oh well.

    I'd imagine that it would be more front heavier. What sort of problems did you encounter?

    I might just build up my 7age but I've always liked the 1UZ, specially when dropped in Celica Supras and 90s Cressidas.

    Yeah once you factor in the donor engine, manual trans, bellhousing, driveshafts, fuel system, cooling system, headers, and exhaust you're probably looking at 10-12k realistically
    Owned too many different modified toyotas to list LOL

    If I was to do another engine swapped corolla I would probably choose a 3rz, keep it NA with wild cams, high compression, forged internals and a tune. Go for 300hp or something, and get the SC weir axles and diff to keep the 6.7 rearend.
    This would retain the ae86 spirit a little better IMO.

    I'll be happy with 150hp at this point, I don't need too much horsepower, I'd rather get a BEAMS swap done but, cheap 1UZ in my hands.

    Do you guys know of any good shops in BC?

    I'll say 1u is a perfect match.
    1uz with 225s on the back feels just like a stock motor with 185s in the rain...like exactly.
    1u keeps the car fun and twitchy, it keeps the spirit of the car, it's simplistic and super fun.

    Also, are you doing this swap? vvti 1uz is retarded fast.

    My advice, harden the **** up and just start doing it.
    Nobody knows how to do anything until they've done it, you learn by doing.

    I promise you'll get through it. Everyone here started knowing nothing.

    The 3RZ weighs about 25-40 lbs less than a 1UZ, but with over 100hp less (even without VVT-i). Sure you can modify the 3RZ, but I'm just sayin'.

    I wish I could but I don't have a garage with a cherry picker and I only spent a week learning how to weld with Oxyacetalyne, I could never fabricate the headers myself.

    Indy-speed has you covered for headers to fit the 86 and listen to Devon regarding 1uz86 tuning. Good luck with your build!
