The way it sits now, i will have to get the pulley turned to gain an inch and the bolts on the pulley for the water pump, may get in the way. I'm going to run dual 12" fans that are 2.2" deep.so i'll probably order those, get them mounted and wait on my engine to get rebuilt. I know that the body mount doesn't look that strong , but it would probably hold all my weight(170) without the upper cross member in.

nice. So have you already had your engine in and check for clearance? You running puller fans I assume?

You keeping the IFS?

nope, haven't had it in yet, i had a post and JMG4runner posted he had the same set up and had 4" clearance from crank pulley to the frame, so i'm hoping i will have enough room, if not i can probably lean it forward a little and notch the hood out more. The puller fans i saw on e-bay for like 45$ a piece.Side by side i should get pretty good clearance from the crank pulley, but the water pump pulley might be a problem.The IFS sucks, i was going to keep it, don't have the $ right now, is the 3"exhaust going to be my biggest problem? i also have a rear sump oil pan, so that should be good i hope.

where did you get a rear sump pan, did you make it? How do you know it will clear your IFS diff.

3" exhuast is a tight fit, but it will fit. I would recommend crossing over just behind the t-case. Only problem with that, is you won't have room for your cat there anymore, so you will have to mount your cat where your muffler is, and your muffler back by your spare tire. A little tricky to do, but can be done.

Make sure on your fan mounts, mount them to something, not through the fins on the radiator.

the rear sump oil pan came off my 89 supra

am i wrong, is this not a rear sump? Crossing over behind the t-case with my flat shouldn't be to bad, i got lots of room up in there, the bed surface is 4" higher then the stock location. With the fan mounting should they be mounted to the 1/4 "lip on the sides of the stock supra radiator with 2 cross bars and 8 screws or work with the 2 stock clips on the bottom somehow? THANKS Kevin

that is a mid-rear sump, not a rear sump. If you keep your IFS, you have to go to a rear sump, or lose some capacity.

Also, don't forget baffles. They keep the oil from sloshing, and on steep angles, keep oil from trying to leave the sump area too quickly.

Hey mike, on your rear sump...Where did you put your oil pickup? Is your oil pickup at the lowest point.

dam that sucks, thought i was clear. How difficult and expensive can a straight axle swap get. I'm a cheap ass, but i want something that won't break under this power.Can i just get a pre 84 toyota straight axle and have it work or do i get both axles or just get something off another vehical that has stock lockers and a little more beefer then the toyota?I might have a line on some older jeep axles but i have to check it out, didn't want to get into this right know but if i can get something cheap, i got a torch and a welder, i can make it work. I think, ha ha

You can see in these pics where my sump is:

I just moved it a little bit to avoid the front diff. Down the road I will probably switch to rear sump, after a solid axle swap or something. But yeah, the lowest part of the pan is where the pickup is. I also bent the baffle down and welded it in place where I added capacity in the back.

I have pics of my pan on my site. It is quite a patch job now, but it works. I also had to clearence another spot after I took these pics, but I made my own engine mounts and my engine sits lower than they do in the 4 cyls using 5m mounts I think. Anyway, I had to do a lot with my pan and opted to graft part of the stock pan into the supra pan because there was so much interference. Rob only had to weld a small piece of plate angled on one side on one of his swaps, so you might not be in too bad of shape.

yes, if you are using stock mounts, then only a little clearance is needed. With this, I only lost about 1/2 quart capacity, which can be easily added by adding a little more material toward the back of the oilpan. You do however still have to move the oil pickup, the second picture shows that.

thanks alot guys, not sure what i'll do, i may go look at some axles this weekend and take it from there.I guess the pan would be the easiest thing to do, so we'll see if i get a deal i cannot turn down on the axles. Time to sell the house and the divorce would soon follow. ha ha
