    Aaah that's so much fun!
    nothing illegal about it, people put older motors in newer bodies all the time.

    it's illegal here, impossible to get road registered!

    i can't say i understand why you'd want to do the swap.. cool though

    track car?

    not sure how you'd keep all the OEM comforts working without being able to use the DME?

    SO MUCH ROOM FOR ACTIVITIES though. wow.

    If most cases are displacement limited I agree.

    I'm going against the grain and saying i hate 2jz's. I don't like anything from Japan in general. At the end of the day yeah it can make power. Its a heavy, primative , iron block 6 cylinder with a head that flows well.

    LSx will do anything those can do with lower weight and better weight bias. In fact, as others have said...m52/s50 etc would achieve the same goal. Hell, 15 years ago this may have been a viable option but now its a hell of a lot of work and this motor doesn't deserve the "end all be all" status anymore. Sure back in the day it was capable of a lot and still is, but how many other factory FI'd iron block 6 cylinders were there? 1 that was mainstream, anyway... The rb26. Its just a good formula, not a magic recipe.

    I could go on and on but I know I'm gonna get bashed by the fast and furious crowd but I will leave it at this...

    A+ for effort, any time somebody does a swap like this it takes an incredible amount of dedication to see it through

    At the same time seeing a Japanese engine makes my blood boil

    Iron block 6 cylinders do work. The 2jz is not a miracle motor. It is one of the first mainstream ones that was factory FI and flowed well

    Running well and putting down the power are 2 different stories. I'm sure it'll drive great with an iron block hanging over the front wheels

    4- anger at German car having Japanese engine again. It makes me feel like someone raped my mom

    5- if you are in america, you should keep it 'Merican

    *Edited* I think it's cool! LOL didn't mean to start a 2JZ vs LSx war. Not like it matters, most already know who would win.

    Wow, that's very cool. I can't really say i'm surprised considering just how big a PITA the N54 has been for chuck.

    I would've gone with 6.0 truck engine with a PT88 but that's just me.

    LOL, I'm a huge fan of LSx motors, and that's what I would I use myself, but you can't deny the achievements of the 2jz, plenty of 1500hp+ cars from each, and not too many other production motors can say they've accomplished that. So i'm not sure which "reality'' you live in

    Not bashing your opinion at all but you have the 2jz completely wrong...the heads actually flow horribly which is why guys use NOS when running larger turbos to help it spool quicker and you have to give it up to a motor that's still more than competitive 20 years after it's introduction. There's also that fact that an LSX motor which is 2x the displacement is seen as the only other option...

    I love the 2JZ don't get me wrong and it's hella impressive indeed. But a 1500hp 2JZ and a 1500hp LSx will be distinctly different cars. What it comes down to though is you build a car for a goal, and in many cases that goal is to be unique. A LSx swap is not very unique. But to say a 2JZ is >, is somewhat inaccurate imo.

    When did I call it unique? It's no way unique, maybe in this car it's unique, but I don't think anyway is calling the motor unique, if anything just opposite, it's proven. Still waiting to hear on why they chose this motor, which is probably going to be size. You're right, two 1500 hp cars with each motor would be different...but that's completely build dependent on what was done to achieve those power levels, you can't assume which would outperform the other just knowing the motor and HP level. Since this thread has a 2jz in it though lets keep it on topic...

    Lol man you're the one who said in most cases the 2JZ would be better. I think you're crazy because in any case I can think of it's not "better" and at best it's equal, although the 2JZ is an awesome engine. I would say the exact same thing to anybody saying a 4G63 is better than a 2JZ, although in that case size might be an issue. Compared to a LS, the 2JZ is physically larger (and heavier) in every direction (length, width, height) other than displacement which the LS has more substantially more of. I have a feeling he went with this engine out of a personal preference or goal of some sort and I hope to see some video's of it because motor swaps are always cool. But I agree, lets not get off topic here heh.

    My post wasn't to start a "which swap is better" war anyway. But since we always go back and forth N54 335i vs S65 M3, I figured a 2JZ 335i vs LSx M3 would be an interesting race. Just inciting thought was all.
