Well, if you want the best you want the best. But an SR20 will fetch a premium a week before race wars.

If you want a more budget consious route, I think an N55 is a good option.

In my opinion the 2jz is to heavy.If you want a 6cylinder you could go with the vq35 from a 350Z its an aluminum block, and might even be easier to find. LS V8 might even be lighter than a 2jz.

If you want to be unique, swap whatever you want.

If you want to be intelligent, swap an LSx.

If you want to be cost effective, turbo the BP.

do a w12. They are about as easy to swap as the *** on your lips from your boyfriend felching you last night.
