      then attached stuff



      so big



      then i did this



      then did a tranny



      then used a forklift to put that...



      ...in here



      like this



      then tom ground some stuff



      ... stood up here and pointed at stuff



      and then the 2jz was in






      and the peasents rejoice

      You don't seem to understand the concept of 'k'. It means thousand so its 50k and 80k not 8000k

      Woah, cool

      Two questions: Why this over an LS engine?

      Does the front frame of the Solstice really look like that, or did you modify it to remove the front structure?

      Yeah, the car will be getting a cage of sorts.

      And yes, the frame looks just like that. Reason for the swap is that the Solstice Aisin AR5 transmission bolts right up to the 2JZ via a 1jz bellhousing. It's basically an updated Aisin r154 they shoved into supra's. Also, the motor mounts up to the LNF motor mount's, which was really weird, and it sit's in just the right place. Moreover, LS' have been done, I'm pretty positive this is the first JZ swap into a Kappa platform to my knowledge in the world.

      2JZtice...

      The tale of DNA and bloodlines runs deep. Deeper than you imagined.

      What a strange coincidence the 2JZ seems to fit in so well. Were you set on a 2JZ swap and then realized it fit with little modification?

      Awesome build. Following for more later.

      I'll ask the question no one else has? Why? There is a huge ecotec aftermarket and parts from the GM performance catalog will basically allow you to build a motor stock to 400 hp and onwards up to 1200 hp using a stock block?

      Why? Because it hasn't been done before, that's why.
