I've done a couple turbo swaps in my day. Most recent being a 1JZ-GTE twin turbo which was converted to a big single. It surprisingly looks about the same ordeal other than pulling the turbo from the bottom instead of the top. It took me about 10 hours however the single went back on much easier, most Supra owners complain about how hard it is to get the twins off with the motor installed. That being said, I'm looking forward to loosing 16 hours of my life to this car eventually.

I've done a few 1jz and 2jz pulls. Those motors, since they sit upright, are cake compared to these. I think the NA-T build I did on my SC300 was one of the easiest turbo installs I ever did as well. Loved that engine
