I'm hoping to get the latest map through soon, needs some work on the drive-ability. Then I'll find a rolling road, the problem is the rolling road I used before are not in business any more. Would have been nice to get a comparison.

What I hope you get is a 2gr but with an ECU that can take advantage of the better intake and exhaust you have. The stock ECU does the job but it's still a sienna map [Sad]

Hi Bob, I had a 1mz with a trd supercharger on and was going to invest in some stronger internals etc. When Paul (Woods) was going on about how good these 2gr engines were. My 1mz was producing something like 288 bhp and 260ft/lbs of torque. Anyhow I ended up going for the 2gr and honestly mate if you can afford one get one. With some breathing mods your looking at 325 bhp and bags of low down torque.

If your ever come up to Co. Durham drop me a line and I'll take you out in her.

You could try Luke at Pacific works in Dunstable, not sure he's done any, Pete at SBits did Karl's car last year but Paul at Woodsport does the most.

All three are highly regarded.

I've sent Pacific works an email a few days ago but I haven't heard back from them I'm also waiting on Peter to get back to me. I Haven't spoke to Paul at woodsport yet but that's only because he's a 4 hour drive away

I would say to phone Luke and probably the same for Pete - busy guys don't always have time to check emails and forums and because they're good they're always busy!

Have a look on twobrutal, where you'll find build threads, advice etc and others who've completed v6 conversions

There's also Headcover -affiliate on here who completes v6 conversions too [thumleft]

Also thanks for the offer of advice I'm sure I'll be definitely taking you up on that at some stage

What sort of costs are involved for a 2GR-FE swap? I'm also presuming it will be a lot heavier on fuel as well.

Sure paul will correct me but it's around 8-9 grand for a drive in drive out 2gr swap or about 5-6k for a diy swap.

No idea on a 2gr mpg but my 3vz v6 as a daily averages 27-28mpg id expect a 2gr to equal that or better but as most 2gr's are weekend toys id imagine they are used in anger when used and as such the mpg are lower

I spotted that also. Does seem to be missing the intake and various other things. More like a long block assembly rather than a complete unit.

One thing I have noticed is these V6's are quite low revving which is a surprise. That or it's just the speedo's out of calibration.
