Hey guys, well yes its finally happend, the 1g finially died, well broke.haha there are bits of piston floating in the bottom end i think, haha. so have pretty much decided that i may as well put the 1j in it, been told its not that hard. been talking to tim harris about it, but any other info would be great.
from what ive been told i need a front sump and a jz80/90 engine mounts and maybe have to change the powersteering and driveshaft???
After this is done i will be selling it for good, as i got a Ralliart magna on the way over and the torana should be running this weekend.

By the way, I think you are crazy to do a conversion to just sell a car.
You will definately lose money doing it, as very few people will pay top dollar for an unfinished, unengineered, not registered conversion. Especially if the car is in average condition in the first place.
