Cool 2jz Miata build thread

I ran into this while searching for a car. Is extremely interesting how easy the 2jz fits right in with little hassle.

why would you want to go through all the trouble lining up, fabricating, etc...when it's much easier to just build a 2.0 miata motor to make any amount of power you want (depending on how deep your pockets are)...

After a going north of 120mph several times in my car...they're in serious need of a healthy dose of "clean" aero.

Just to say you can. I would.
And for the record I'm pretty sure a 2JZ will destroy a BP with much less money.

What's a bone stock 2JZ run you? Plus the value of the time to get it in there ND RUNNING WELL..? VS the same amount put into a BP which is already in the car. I'll stick with my BPs (unless you wanna talk about LS1's )

It shouldnt really be hard to get it running once its in, and you can make like 600hp on the stock engine... then if you build it...

its just ridiculous, lol

Not that anyone really wants to run 1000 whp in a Miata but...
How many BP's get to 1000 hp? Apparently the new record is the Greek guy with 800...
How many 2JZ's do you see with north of 1000 whp? Not every day, but I've seen quite a few in magazines/forums/etc.

If I had deep pockets, I'd go with the 2JZ, just for ***** and giggles.

^^^ And what he said, 2JZ's are already really damn strong in stock form.

Yea, I was thinking exactly that, but we were talking strictly about power output. And if you need the power that a 2JZ is going to give you, I don't think you give a flying **** about handling.

Awesome. Notice that all he needed to mount the motor was custom motor mounts. No k-member modifications if I understood his post correctly. Fab a rear mount for the trans, a mount for the diff end of the PPF, make a custom driveshaft, done. All of that is relatively easy.

I wonder how well the shifter turret lines up with the stock hole?

^^ yeah all he mentions is fabricating custom mounts and voila!!

I dont think the person behind this built has handling in mind. This car looks like a drag *****

FM 2.0 stroker, $7200-$10k depending if you build it or have them do it

Stock 2jz capable of that same 600hp, $3k with tranny

you do the math genius!
