for me its not the fan boy thing but an american muscle car is all about torque and the mean sound. When i saw the title i thought it would be a muscle car with a turbo v8 or something like that.

Not cool in the least bit! That doesn't sound right, and I mean that in the bad way. I saw this thing about 2 weeks ago, and it doesn't sound right in the good way, the hairs-on-your-neck-raising good way!














Here's why...







Awesomeness!

LOL, when did I say that? I said THAT engine in THAT classic domestic is wrong. It's as wrong as a 67 Mustang with a RB26DETT swap. Is it going to be fast? Yes. Is it going to be cooler than a 427FE swapped 67 Mustang? Hell no! Not in a million years!

Is that 240SX cooler than an RB26DETT 240, HELL YEAH!!!

Not saying that, but an Import engine into a Domestic MUSCLE car, especially 60s 70s, is a disgrace. Personally, I think it'd be cool in maybe a 3rd gen F-body, or something of that sort. But not a 67-69 Camaro. Oh, and LSx engines will go great in ANYTHING. Import, Domestic, doesn't matter.

i have seen that car in person and have to agree it was pretty sick...But i do agree if u want to swap an import engine into a muscle car don't make it such a rare car. Take like an iroc z or somethin that u see everyday.

Thats a matter of opinion, and I think you are wrong.

I heard about the 2JZ camaro a while back, Im pretty sure its a local guy, or I know there is a local one.

I think it was all bought on by an LS1 in a supra, someone tried it or something and the 2Jz was done as a rebuttle. Well that was the last thing I heard.

There was a big deal about it in on LS1tech.

I dont know why but I dont mind the car but I wouldnt want anything swapped into a supra that just seems strange to me.
Oh and I personally really love 2Jz swapped 240s.

Ive grown to like the 2Jz
