The famous Toyota 2JZ engine (3 liter inline 6, iron block and aluminum head, DOHC, and built battle-ship tough as the basis for the Toyota TT) has been swapped into cars ranging from an old Mustang (for the Fast and Furious series) to an S2000... but now also onto a Toyota FT86... in Thailand.

Look this Videos:

I Believe a Turbo EJ25 could be better Idea: Less Work and probably around the same Capabilities.

Kind Regards.

That is a great question. I am assuming it gets sold online or dissected for images/information.

Sold online sounds like the default choice, that explains How the Flat twelve Subaru engine from the 1980's decade Formula uno, ended on e-Bay once.

Well, subaru used it with two different F1 Teams

More info, ~► Here.

Then it was used in two different street-legal cars, such like the Subaru Caspita...

...and went into production for certain models of the Swedish car...

Ah good catch. I could have sworn it was a Toyota engine as well. You are correct sir.

I actually started feeling sick watching the video of the 2jz into an FR-S.All of the design work by the subaru engineers wasted.

That is a good point. It is hard to argue with the power potential of the 2JZ though. :burnout:

I wonder how long until we see an LSX swap.

Nicely done! Does not appear to be finished but it looks like it is not too much of a squeeze. Thanks for the link.

It is a love and hate type of deal for me with the LS motors. They are great performers, mileage is very reasonable, they take a ton of boost/power. That being said it seems like they are dropped into anything and everything. It is refreshing at times to see a project with something off the wall.

yea LSx is the new 350 chevy.

also power potential becomes kind of a moot point anyway.Depending on the type of driving you do 100-200 HP per driving wheel is just asking to become a tire shops preferred customer if you try to use all that power. 100 being for gravel and 200 for pavement.Assuming that you are interested in things other than going fast in a straight line.

Very true I could probably have just as fun in a 90hp Miata as a 500hp Camaro, maybe even more. It is still interesting to see the breaking point of the stock bottom ends.

Speaking of swapping stuff around, am I the only one that thinks about the potential of a 6spd RWD trans that bolts to an EJ?? Really makes me think that my dream of turning my 84 turbo in to a drift car that much closer to reality!

Couldn't you just get a custom bell housing or adapter plate? Or am I missing something?
