Hey I have a mk3 w58 and soon going to be buying a 1jzgte non vvti. I was wondering if swapping that engine into my '81 corona will be possible without cutting the radiator support.

Looks like you need to break out the measuring tape. That and fabrication are about to be your friend. I have seen a few 2JZ-GTE Corona swaps online, but they seemed to require moving radiator ahead of the support and some firewall mods.

Thanks man..I met a guy at ke conversions and he makes motor mounts and tranny mounts for my corona. I just gonna probably go that route and put the radiator in between of the support and grille, where the a/c condenser is located.

It certainly can be done.

We'll need pics. >:D
Most definitely bud..I also want to manual swap my corona. I think there is factory holes for the clutch master cylinder already in the firewall, I think i just need to find a clutch pedal and clutch pedal bracket and I already have a mk3 w58 tranny. Any suggestions friend?
