This is something that we're working on now, and I thought that I would share it with you guys.
This setup belongs to Tim who has been a TDC customer for several years now. He originally bought his G35 Sedan for his wife to drive, but ended up taking it for himself. He had a Turbonetics turbo kit with a Precision PT61 installed and tuned, and turned to modding the rest of the car for about a year while boosted. One night out on the street, Tim's head gasket went, and instead on repairing, we decided to upgrade.
Most people know that we do LOTS of 350Z and G35 work, so the VQ35 is not a new endeavor. We looked into a sleeved block at first, but Tim wanted something a little more eye-catching.
Enter the 2JZ-GTE swap

First, the VQ was tossed to the side.
This is the new customized subframe. After it came back from powder coating, it was installed in the car.
