We love quick cars and don't really care what they're powered by, so we reckon this Toyota 2JZ powered BMW M3 is pretty awesome. Check out the second pass where it runs in the sevens after stepping off the gas well before the finish line. This car is going to be a weapon once they get it sorted!
Twin Turbo V8 Lexus-powered Capri
Joe Geri's Capri recently featured in Street Machine Magazine and it has
run as fast as 8.34 at 164mph. But instead of running a V8 Ford engine Joe
has gone for a 4-litre Lexus V8, which is legally the biggest engine he can
fit to the car and turbo it while
remaining totally street legal. He drives this car to the track, bolts on
some slicks, runs eights and drives it home. It's a true street and strip
warrior. Nice one Joe!
Turbo Valiant Wagon Dyno
Remember the Sleeper Wagon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6wXw8t9oeU ? It
was a Aussie Valiant wagon (A-body Mopar like the Dodge Dart) that I bought
for $250 and fitted a borrowed 440 big block to it.
Year's later I repainted the car Hemi Orange and fitted a turbocharged 245 hemi six to it and even though it
made only 40hp less than the big block it was nowhere near as much fun.
Here's the Dyno tuning
session from about four years ago. These days the wagon just runs a
naturally aspirated 245 hemi six, but I'm thinking of doing some more to it
SPOT ON - Chassis Twisting 2JZ-Powered VL Wagon
This is Australia's quickest VL Wagon but it's not powered by a Nissan
3-litre like most other VL's, this one is sporting Toyota power with a
hopped-up 2JZ under the bonnet. It's no slouch either. On Saturday it ran a
PB of 9.8 before breaking the gearbox, they dropped another box in it and
turned up the wick with the car going 9.2 at 150mph by the end of the day.
It's still got the factory BW diff in it too.
