Good info as I did not know this. Might consider a similar swap.

Yes, it makes that engine really easy to swap. I know a lot of people stay away from VVTI but I love it. They are also very cheap to get.

I have heaps of wiring diagrams and documents if anybody is looking to do something similar, both 1JZ and 2JZ GE/GTE

why do you say the stock tank is nasty?

unless you go with a fuel cell the repops suck - they are thin metal

Thats what I was kind of getting at, I saw some replacement tanks online but was unsure on quality.

The tank is just rusted a bit and covered with grime, Maybe ill sand blast it and see how it looks. Then paint

4 gal vertical fuel cell, no air bubbles in the fuel. This also makes it easy to flood the inlet of the pump to prevent cavitation (more air bubbles)

Unless you want all that weight in the back and like bubbles in your fuel.

Here is how I plan to mount the subframe


I made some 4" dia standoffs and will weld in a collar for the studs to sit in (not fully welded up yet



these will mount like to, then be welded to the c-channel between the frame rails.


for the front I will make some square boxes once the rear is in the right position, I will also add some tubing to tie the mounting standoffs together and probably some gussets or something.

Currently my welder is not working so this is keeping me from getting too far right now

got the rear subframe in after lots of cutting, it was pretty much a pain in the ass but its in there. Lots of welding to do. I had to take out a pretty good chunk on the frame rails on both sides so that will need to be reinforced.

I am realizing I will need to tilt the subframe a bit forward, under compression the wheels are wanting to travel backwards relative to the frame. I will be cutting out the tack welds and modifying the mounts a bit to make this happen. You can see in the pics when the car is near the ride height it will sit, the wheels are a little bit back of center to the wheel wells.


and another pic of the subframe mounting set up (needs to be reinforced and fully welded still)

Really liking the subframe swaps, especially the rear. It looks a lot simpler and lighter than the IRS volvo used in the 7/9 series.
I did an IRS (from MK1 960) swap in my 940.. gained some weight in the back for sure! I guess it is good for traction... :D

I dont think its lighter than the live axle that was in there, but It definitley looks simpler than the other volve IRS setups I have seen. I also happened the have this set up sitting around so decided to go for it!

How are you guys picking which IRS you want to use? A reasonably similar track width is obviously a concern. What else?

yes you are correct about the track width. I had this setup already so I chose that. the volvo 240 has a track width of 67.3 (someone correct me if im wrong), and S14 has 68.1 so pretty close. Wheel selection would be important, and what amount of fender/body work you can/want to deal with would be important too

1) search
2) find online measurements
3) Figure what works best for you and how much skill you want to put into it

For me track width was out the window completely. There are like 2 reasonable IRS setups for track widths small enough for a 122. I'm just flaring/cutting fenders to make it fit and that gives me penultimate freedom to choose any IRS I feel like!

I meant more along the lines of how the suspension kinematics perform, anti-dive/squat, etc.
