    Default For those of you who remember Call 911..........

    Here's where his car is at as of now. Why am I posting this here? Because it's freaking cool (and yes, I have some wrench time on this as well, but another friend of ours is doing the majority of the build).



    This is a ridiculous build. Magnum T56, freshly built 2JZ, 276 cams, Precision 7685 (GT42) Turbo, Halltech Elite 2500, PWM Deatschwerks Fuel system, E85, etc etc etc. Car is going to make an easy 1150-1200 at the tire.

    Some are gonna yell sacrilege, and I get that. But Ben, like myself and lots of others, are just car guys and dig stuff like this. Why he went this way? His LTx setup with the big turbo (BW S484) didn't last long at a tad over 1K RWHP. It twisted the block and munched the main bearings. He's loved the MKIV Supra and 2J platform ever since I've known him (going on about 15+ years now) and he figured this would be a good balance. I think it's phenomenal. Best part? He's fully documenting the build via youtube.....it's worth a watch. Lot of talking and amateurism to start with but quickly grows into a decent watch. This is legit the first documented 2JZ 4th Gen swap.

    Hoping to be at least turning the key on it within a couple of months. We just picked up the motor a couple weeks ago, and that was really the last big piece before it could go in with the driveline for the last time.

    Right! He tried, couldn't find one! They'd all been bought up already.

    This is SUPER cool. Can't knock anyone for doing something they think is interesting or unusual.
    Some purist will always cry foul, just like I think swapping LS's into everything is lame and taking the cheap/easy way out. It's all about what YOU want.
    Looking forward to seeing this thing run!

    That's awesome!! Cooper that used to be on the Cleetus Mcfarlend youtube channel is building a 2j camaro too that should be pretty fast.

    It's gonna dust my behind that's for sure. Even after I kick up the fuel system (in progress actually) and clear 1K at the wheels, he's still gonna dust me.

    i was gonna say this, his is going in a 98 catfish v6 car though there hasn't been much of any documentation on it. love the way a big turbo 2j sounds (although not quite as much as a v8) so this is definitely cool to me. would love to have a 2j car in the garage at some point but wouldn't ever be in a camaro personally
