Man, this is so stupid... how can you justify $15K+ on twin turboing + tuning a Euro M3 motor swap when you can swap in a small block chevy or a turbo supra engine for 1/3 of the cost?!?

Anyone wanna do a non-BMW swap.. all the power to you!
A BMW is know for its prestige and handling capabilities, not for mind-blowing power. If anything, A BMW engine is the weakest link in a Bimmer.

I've always heard that they were hand assembled by the M guys... where did you get the Rolls Royce info from?

Back on topic... drop the 2JZ in there! At the end of the day, if it makes you happy you've answered your own question.

Where did you get this idea that Supra parts are cheap?
They are expensive cars with expensive mods if you do it properly.
If you want cheap power, get a simple pushroad v8 slap a turbo on it and twist your driveshaft on daily basis.

BMW aftermarket scene is still kinda new, so not much stuff is available, but its gettin there.
Remember just 3 years ago everybody were drooling over 350rwhp aa turbo m3s. Now, they can do 630rwhp. And ICS is building a 1000fwhp m3 now.
Trust me, 600rwhp supra wont cost less than a 600rwhp m3.

Sorry man, the engine is definately not for sale. I was lucky enough to get it when I did, so I'm just going to keep it around until my current engine blows, or I decide to sell my current engine with it's supercharger as a whole. Could be a year or two before I start to do the 2JZ swap...



(I probably should have done the swap from day one, but didn't think of it at the time, and it's just too late now without a good reason)

No problem.. happen to know where I can pick one up?.. What other options do I have for an e36 in terms of engine swaps?

how much would a 2jz go for in strong condition?

if i were to get an e36 with a dead engine, how much do you think it would cost to get a 2jz in there running smoothly with no problems.

Actually Supra is/was more expensive than e36 m3. New or used.
And TwinTurbo 3.0l engine smoking a detuned 3.0/3.2l NA engine is not what I call technology. I'd call it FI.
