Twin turbo 6g72 swap #1105451 01/13/20 08:11 PM

Need a Spot
Hi guys new member here. I'm planning on doing a twin turbo swap into my 94 3.5DOHC. From searching around it appears it can be done. I'm hoping to hear from someone with first hand experience doing this and what the main obstacles will be. I'm planning on using ecu and wiring harness from 3000gt. Understand probably modify accessory brackets, engine mounts, replumb turbo and cooling. Thinking the oil pan will probably hit front diff. Is this a bad idea? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks guys

Welcome to 4x4wire!

Are you planning to keep your rig smog legal? Your location says Cali.

Steve Myler will have some good tips, as he's done a 6g75 into a Mighty Max.

Thanks I've enjoyed reading countless threads on here and other forums. Lot of knowledge on here. I'm not trying to keep it smog legal. I'll pay a little extra every couple years to get it to pass. I pulled the motor today and realized just how tight my motor sits in bay. Seeing as noone seems to have done the TT 6g72 swap I'm having second thoughts. I'm researching the 1uzef vvti swap and that's were I'm leaning towards now. This is our desert/dune rig so I'm looking for more hp

Ok I picked up a Lexus 4.0 v8 1uzfe and tranny. I would like to hear from anyone who has done this swap. I can get it mounted but I know it's going to be a pain to get new ecu wired up. Any advice would be appreciated.
