Hi guys I have has my is200 for a little over 2 years now and want to get a bit more power out of it.

Seeing that I am a mechanic for Toyota and have very basic knowledge when it comes to turbos and experience in power tuning and in saying that I would like to change my block with a 1ggte block and keep my head so I don't have to change ecu.my questions are what turbo to use?, what other parts am I looking at other then front mount, turbo, piping, injectors and any opinions people may have about me doing this.

Thanks anyone's input would help heaps

Yea I know that it won't be legal be that the engine number will be for a old engine but being a mechanic i know people in the trade to keep me on the road, theoretically speaking the head should bolt straight up being that they are both from the g family right quote me if I'm wrong. The hole turbo thing is what I'm in the dark I don't know how they are rated what size works well for what engine etc. so if someone could fill me in that would be great.

hey mate

how are you going with this?

I live in Qld and also work for Toyota haha,

I have just purchased a 1ggte and I currently have a 1gfe turbo is200.

Are you swapping in the whole bottom end? I cant find much on the net but it seems a lot of people just swap the internals into the 1gfe block.

As far as I have read it all bolts up to the car and box only need to change the sump to the 1gfe one (good time to tap the oil return)

, but I can find info on if the timing belts fit and how to keep the vvti. (external oil feed ect.

I have a vtec swapped Honda as well, I used a oil sandwich plate on that setup and it works fine, was going to run the same idea on the 1ggte/fe

now info for you :

I have a 1jz turbo manifold which I cut the mounting bracket off and welded a 1gfe one on so it bolts up, then I mounted a t4 to t2 plate to the other end to fit a t28R turbo.

I tapped onto the water lines just up near the back of the head (they kind of loop 180)

oil feed from next to oil filter there was a bolt. and return to sump. (all braided line and speedflow fittings)

Im running a Greddy ultimate ecu running a mild 6psi making 182hp atw.

look forward to hearing your reply, would be good if we can both get these hybrids up and boosting :D
