  1. Well they both don't actually lack AC the pace car will be running a vinage air unit plumbed threw the inner fener area as to not take away from the smoothed firewall.

    Heres another, its a coyote swapped ttop..




  2. I feel my soul's in danger! I'd probably make a deal with the devil if I could make mine as nice as that pace car/red ttop
  3. This post is the bees knees. I'm pretty stoked seeing as I just got this one owner (old lady) 80,000 mile pristine LX..... The only question now is 2JZ or Turbo 351w..... IMAG0313.jpg
  4. 2JZ? Really?

    Get real.
    Throw a Ford V8 (what almost everyone does, and for good reason) or a Chevy LS-family engine (which will piss off just about everyone here except me and a few others) in it. Leave the Japanese inline 6 to the Japanese cars. It's a great engine, but it belongs in Z cars, Supras, and the like, not a musclecar or ponycar.

  5. My brothers 4-500 horse 2JZ Fairmont wagon



    My stepdads 1000 horse 2JZ is going in this thing


    I just want to try to keep up......

    Why not.

  6. My buddy had a warmed over 5.0HO in a mid-80's 2WD Jeep Cherokee a few years back. He missed it so much after he sold it, he bought another mid-80's 2WD Jeep
    Cherokee a year or so ago a dropped a 2JZ into it.

    Both were really unique and fun to drive, but the V8 Jeep made a much better driver. The first one would run mid-13's all day, every day and was a relatively easy swap.

    The second one has gone as quick as high-12's....and as slow as high-13's and cost him twice as much money and agravation to build. Seems very finicky to tune and impossible to keep consistent. He's not ready to admit it yet, but I know he wishes he would have stuck with the V8.

    I'm a purist, so any time I see a Ford, with a non Ford engine it's ruined as far as I'm concerned. But hey, to each their own. It's their money to waste.

  7. Don't drive skinnies on the street.
  8. Gotta admit I am guilty of that .. Drove 15 x 4's on two cars ... Not the best when you need to do a panic stop or combined with drag radials when it rains
