I guess you could say that. The question is, would 600-700hp be enough for you? If so, there is no reason a 1JZ wont get you there just as easily as a 2J. I would worry less about engine and more about tranny.
This is definitely true if you can find some USDM twins and fuel to support them.
i'll love to have that kind of power but man mn isnt a place where you could have fun with it thats how i see.. lol but if i were to find a usdm twins i think that would satisfied me aha
Engine and tranny are mutually exclusive. Get whatever you can afford and deal within your constraints.
With that being said, your best bet is to first select the R154 transmission and then figure what you can afford, 1JZ or 2JZ. That simple. Both motors can get you into W58 implosion territory.
i know thats why im posting this thread aha im just at the budget where i could get those thats why im not sure.. but i really want a 2jzgte but i cant seem to find anything helpful for me to help on the swap unlike 1jz aha unless ya know some sit that could help me?? aha
Read people, he gave you guys options to pick, what's with all the 2jzgte and r154, why not just say 2jzgte with getrag? He did say money was an issue like 3 times.
Get the 2jzgte with w58, it's a lot easier to change transmission than to find out you probably would like a different engine more, specially once you put a fair bit of money into it. Also, if your power goal is only 300-400, w58 will hold, I've seen W58 hold 450 no problem, it all depends on how you drive and what you use it for, if you daily cruise, w58 is enough, if you track it, get a r154 later on when you need it.
By the way, if you destroy your w58, it's only a few hundred to replace, no big deal.
If it's not Inline... It's out of line!
Quoted from Rominl:
- Do it once and do it right. Do your homework to get it right.
- If you can't afford it, drive the car stock.
- Promoting knock-offs is shameful on a car enthusiast site, not to mention companies who make/sell knock-offs.
- It's authentic if it roots from the original company
