That engine bay is huge, thought that 2J was a 4 banger for a second. Lots of room for activities.

Well, I thought we'll see something like this shortly after the first supra deliverys.

But it looks like this guy cheated.

Or was that the first auctioned a90 that was worth hundreds of thousands of $ :rofl:

No one would even be considering the 2JZ swap if the B58 was a proven reliable engine at high power. The biggest step backwards is the B58 :dunno:

It looks huge because he got rid of damn near everything around it
You can literally fit 3 more intercoolers between the engine and the bumper and have one on top of the engine itself. I ain't even gonna be mad when my B58 blows up, a twin turbo V6 is going to fit in there nicely.

Well, I guess they have a proven formula that they know works, already probably had a worked 2JZ at their disposal and considering the level they are competing at, this makes a bold statement... Just my 0.2c.
