So he does several runs of the 'track' and takes the best parts :S I knew something was up when he sucked in the rallies. Well I blame Top Gear they were the ones who introduced me to it.

It's going to be pointless to try and drive it after that.

So he's not winning against the best in the word, that makes him suck balls?

Considering he's pretty much a successful fashion designer, that decided late in life to become a rally driver, he's doing pretty well.

Plus, even knowing that the gym...ka video was edited (the 6 million sets of tire marks at each stunt kind of give it away) doesn't mean a damn thing to me whenever I watch it. Pure car porn.

World's best rally driving fashion designer ever!

Because it's so played out. The JZ engines are legendary... but it's so lame to take this car and put on in it.

Want to do something cool? Find a way to put a fully built 4AGE in it. Something paying tribute to it's heritage.

The 1JZ/2JZ route..... it's just stupid. The only reason to do it is to be the first retard on the block to do it.

Id do a 20B 3-rotor swap before i take on a 2jz swap...so i can retain high output, high reving, and low center of gravity.

anyway...my first mods will probably be in order;

Headers,Intake,exhaust,coilovers,wheels,(Aero).

Right.... So your saying be the first retard to put a Less capable engine in a car so that I can be original. Sounds like you are a genius, and I don't give 2 shits if the 2jz/1jz are played out, I know the engines and what they are capable of, not to mention the aftermarket for both are enormous, instead of bashing my idea, why don't you say hey that will be pretty quick, or I'd like to see that, instead of oh look he's got an idea that I don't like, he must be dumb. You know what's even funnier is that you think your on to something....

I won't lie... I'd like to see it. I'd never do it myself, but wouldn't knock you for pulling it off. I take it you are making it a drag car though?

Might as well since the balance that Toyota were striving for will be completely lost. I mean, this kind of reminds me of the RX7 2JZ swap, that thing made 1500hp+ on nitrous, but lost all handling and became a drag car. The 3 rotor idea is cool tho, but to expensive for anyone with a budget at all.

I am going to hack the computer in the car to play a speed matching version of THIS at ALL TIMES.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=QH2-TGUlwu4

When the car is stopped, it will be off. Then, as soon as i start moving, it will picked up in speed from stopped to full speed at around 40mph. All of this will be played from a megaphone between the exhaust tips. THIS IS GOLD!

Even though an LSX swapped FD RX7 loss some balance it still handles great and would put a stomping on stock FD3S, stock for stock swap in a drag, autocross and road course.
