The combination of Toyota’s new 86 plus the tried and true 2JZ is proving to be a solid combo. Besides Fredric Aasbo’s car in Europe and Ken Nomura’s new D1GP machine in Japan, there’s also a 2JZ-powered 86 roaming the streets of Thailand.
Just like Fredric’s project – this one was completed in a very short time frame – four weeks to be exact.
I don't get putting a 2JZ boat anchor in this car; why not a hi-po STI engine or a 3UZ or something? Or you know, maybe work on building the factory engine and showing what you can do rather than ripping it out for a 2JZ.
i would love a 2jz, even better a crazy 2jz-gte with vvt-i. ahh one can only dream huh? only reason i dont want that swap beacuse it will not be under warrenty, hmm i hope when sema shows an frs/brz/86/gt86 it will have the stock engine but 150 more hp and wayy more torque at low and mid rpm. how? turbo maybe, supercharger? i guess. switch up some parts? any1 have any ideas? well maybe we'll have to just wait and see...
funny that even toyota dont like the original boxer engine and they swap a 2jz for reliable power, bad move, that car needed a good 4cil turbo toyota motor on the first place.
Should have left the factory with one of the many bullet proof Toyota production engines, instead of the subaru grenade they run.
It's done by Kiki Sak Nana and co. I supposed. Been seeing a few pictures on-line lately.
