    He mentioned the biggest issue is the wiring harness. I doubt there are any BMW electronics in both of those 2JZ swaps since both cars are completely gutted.

    I can't imagine how difficult this will be. It's already hard enough to do in a 20ish year old E46, much less a brand new car. I wonder if it will even possible to get things like the dash or the air conditioning to work.

    A complete PITA to say the least. I think someone will do it eventually, but I don't seeing it being viable for a really long time if you're trying to just do PnP lol.

    Probably Toyota has lots in store for the future with this model, including hybrid.

    I'll say it. Now it has the heart of a Supra.

    How though? In a gutted racecar with an aftermarket EMS and a racepack or similar dash it really is cake in the grand scheme of things.

    As @A70TTR said though, in a street car with everything functioning.... good Lord, I can see a job like that taking literal months to get done.

    **disclaimer** I didn't watch a second of the video. lol

    Exactly, it’s a drift car, not a street car. Toyota harness, OEM or aftermarket to a stand alone. He wouldn’t need any of the creature comforts.

    Built or bought, you wouldn't need any of the ultrasonic sensors, PDC sensors, parking sensors, rearview camera, three surround-view cameras, full-range radar, short-range radars and an interior camera that BMW's have.
