    1UZ into E36

    Sorry no - you'll have to fabricate the headers yourself, or have them made. Its very tight around the steering shaft. Good luck with your project.

    1UZ into E36

    First of all, I recommend you download this file and read it back to front. https://f01.justanswer.com/RbZmAlHy/This+is+how+you+wire+up+a+1UZFE+Engine.pdf Next, download this file and be sure your model of E36 is included https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J7t70jwIB2UNl2Sc_nlGH2w16VkhL2lx/view...

    Check VSC & ABS issue

    Pin 13 (TC) is the Check Terminal. When it is grounded to Pin 4 (CG) it puts the vehicle into diagnostic mode and the instrument cluster should flash any codes present

    Check VSC & ABS issue

    Will have a look thru the manuals when lockdown gets lifted. Are you resetting by disconnecting the battery? That would wipe any codes. Have you checked for codes while the warning lamps are on?

    1UZ into E36 3 series

    The electronics were relatively easy, just time consuming. The X20 plug has almost everything you'll need to interface with the 1UZ to the E36 - Ignition on, starter, tach, oil pressure, coolant temp, alternator charge, MIL, fuel pump etc. Just find the correct wiring diagram for your engine and...

    1UZ into E36 3 series

    So far, the problems I've solved are: Build engine & transmission mounts Modify sump & oil pickup Modify shifter linkages (auto) Build headers and mount turbo Wiring engine management & adapt Toyota to BMW Throttle cable Brake upgrade (E46 330i front & rear) Tailshaft made to suit Steering...

    1UZ into E36 3 series

    You won't find a definitive list because this engine swap is not a recipe. It will vary depending on gearbox, induction type, and your ability to fabricate parts or pay someone to fabricate them for you. For example, Cybul make off-the-shelf mounts BMW E36 1UZ-FE engine mounts - CYBUL but these...

    Weak point of transmission? Shifting or clutch pack?

    How much gas are you running - and how is that combo in the transmission coping?

    CRESSIDA 1UZ SWAP: ECU ISSUES AGAIN

    My bad - was thinking early model. If those are the correct diagrams for your engine then it looks like 12v

    CRESSIDA 1UZ SWAP: ECU ISSUES AGAIN

    Yep, the current draw from the MAF would be too much for the M-REL. Its only designed to power a low current solenoid in the relay. I would recommend you check your wiring diagrams though... I have several here and they all show VC powering the MAF. Would suck if you fried a MAF.

    CRESSIDA 1UZ SWAP: ECU ISSUES AGAIN

    The The P0120 will be logged when the TPS input to ECU goes above or below the reference voltage. Stable 5v power is supplied by the ECU to TPS via the VC terminal E2 should be constant ground IDL1 should be grounded when the throttle is closed VTA is your variable input when the throttle is...

    Running issue

    Air, fuel and ignition are the 3 essential parts needed for combustion. If it only fires when you open the throttle and runs like crap at idle, then its likely that air is the cause. I would suggest you check the idle speed motor. Pull it off and check to see it its all gummed up. CartuneNZ...

    Weak point of transmission? Shifting or clutch pack?

    A stock A340 cant take much more than about 200kw at the rear wheels before slipping clutches, so I guess it depends on how much nitrous you are running. They make around 150rwkw stock. A 50 shot should see you at the limit. 2nd Gear sprag will generally suffer on heavy throttle in the 1-2...

    1UZ into E36

    The gearshifter was a massive headache and, while it works perfectly, I'm disappointed that it only happened by blind luck rather than engineering skill. The BMW shifter runs a flexible cable above the fulcrum point, where the Soarer shifter runs a control rod below the fulcrum point. There is...

    1UZ into E36

    Here is the final manifold design. Space was fairly tight, especially on the R/H side. The welds on that one are not my finest, but it doesn't leak. I am not showing actual photos due to my awful welds.

    1UZ into E36

    I do. Major surgery was carried out on the hydraulic fan pump to provide some clearance, along with the bracket on the outer edge of the water pump and the AC mount casting on the engine block. And no, the cooling system will not leak. All to make way for the turbo. Its an Aeroflow 5455, and...

    1UZ into E36

    The ignition triggers a 200a Narva relay that powers almost everything - injectors, igniters, fuel pump, etc. I then have a relay, triggered by the M-REL output from the ECU to turn on everything else. It was easier to clear a little space in the factory fusebox and use my own, rather than it...

    1UZ into E36

    No, it was as far from plug and play as you can imagine. It took a a fair amount of time to work it all out - studying both the 1UZ and E36 wiring diagrams, identifying the wires, then splicing them together. Turns out my 1UZ harness was slightly different to all the diagrams I could find on the...
