Transmission rear housing(I think), Transfer case, new Front driveshaft, and axle I.e. Run to a Junk yard and find a 4wd ZJ that you can take the parts out if to make it 4wd...

I think a 2wd JZ would be sorta unique, everyone has a 4x4 heck I didn't know they made them in 2x.

SCT hemifever tuner, headers, exhaust, TB, you could cut the runners on the intake, ect. Fix the plenum gasket first and all the oil leaks. Probably the valve cover gaskets and oil pan gasket. I would maybe lower it a tiny bit and put 17" rims on it with the WJ brake caliper mod.

Th tuner is probably the best bang for the money and its around 300. You get 3 tunes with it though.

Email them and ask for Sean. He can do custom tunes based on your motor and mods.
