    1100 horsepower 2JZ swapped E30 3-Series is a great example of an identity crisis

    The Toyota 2JZ motor. The engine out of the Toyota Supra that has reached legendary status in tuning circles and was every teenage boys dreams ever since its "iconic" scene in the Fast and Furious movie. Some BMW enthusiasts go so far as to compare their six-cylinder motors to it as if that is some kind of badge of honor. Regardless, here is someone who took their 2JZ love a bit too far and decided to swap the motor into an E30 3-Series.

    Is this cool? Is this different? Sure, but a BMW with a Toyota heart just feels wrong. Especially when there are several BMW motors to choose from that can make this same power and then some. An S38 turbo E30 for example just feels more at home and is more impressive in my own opinion. Same thing goes for an S50, S54, S52, M50, M52, etc.

    Yep, it's fast. Yep, it's powerful. But one might as well just swap in a LSX V8 when going this far. You just can't transplant a soul.

    Just because you do something different doesn't mean it's good. Put your underwear on over your pants for example. I mean that's different...

    What does one do with a car like this after it's built? Looks like it's good for nothing but shows and dynos.

    I see nothing wrong with people doing what they want with their car.
    I does feel a little different but I don't judge, I enjoy when I can.
    A sweet 2JZ equals enjoyment in my book.

    I know of a guy who replaced a 2JZ with a Chevy small block in a Lexus SC300. Felt weird at first....but after I found out the car was pushing 500+ hp and ran smooth, what else is there?

    But they are BMW motors. It's more impressive to make 1100 horsepower with an S38 in an E30 than a 2JZ in an E30.

    1000hp is impressive...period. It's obvious that guy tracks his car and would have far less downtime to fix a 2j than a s38...on top of the fact the 2jz is more reliable as a boosted application.

    Disagree. 1100 horsepower out of a BMW motor design from the 70's is more impressive than a more modern factory turbo motor.

    Or 1100 horsepower from a 2.0 liter four cylinder is more impressive than 1100 horsepower from a supercharged 8.4 liter V10.

    An engine proved to make over 1000hp on the stock internals is more impressive than anything.

    At the flywheel, numerous times. You just gotta give it up to a great package.

    I really don't think the determining factor is what you make on stock internals.

    Not really when some motors are NA from the factory and need to be built with lower compression to show what they can do. UGR Gallardo anyone?
