The one thing I like about the 2jz, is there is sooooo many options when it comes to building up the motor. (and the prices are good too because of aftermarket mass production)

Your 'supra'charged project isn't exactly secret anymore---but I wanna see this when it's done anyway, don't know if I'd trust myself with that kinda power. I like how you said... WHEN you blow your engine.

it's only a matter of time
I say give it 1 or 2 years until at least the head gasket blows...that'll be enough of an excuse for me to do the swap heh.
In the meantime, I'll just build up the 2jz, OR, I might get an rb26 (if I can get one at a good price....which will probably never happen )

Twin Turbo Skyline? (if I'm not mistaken)
Yeah probably won't be able to get an engine for a good price in Canada.. there are still so many legality issues with importing Skylines even... but the RB26 is an awesome piece of machinery... don't blow that or your 2JZ when you install it too.

how much did the 2jz run you?

contra... something you may be interested in... RB26 for $3800 USD... manual of course. http://www.jrautoparts.com/engine/r33.html

a lil more difficult to go from AWD to RWD though isn't it?.. unless you convert your bimmer to AWD? ... which would be crazy...

Supra engines run around $3500, and then depending on the tranny, other costs get incurred.

sometimes you get an accident vehicle though, and it's just cheaper to drop that power into your current vehicle. as I said though.. people like to do weird things to bimmers... we've all seen the BMW Nightmare page.. :|

But then why drive a bimmer if you are gonna take its heart, and soul from it, and put something that doesnt belong there? why not buy a supra and do it up? If say you have an e36 318, and u want mor power,TT it, or drop an M3/M5 engine, that way its stilla true BMW at heart, not some jap crap...

well terry i gotta say if i had the determination i would do that also. like i see where contra is comin from cheap speed man. tt'in a bimmer can run u deep pockets and the supra motor already has capable internals for crazy power so y not. i mean u might be takin the soup away form the bimmer but hey if its makin yr soul and pockets happier why not.
