Wicked swap. I think I would go with a smaller turbo and just make around 400hp. Would be a retarded street car!

Is that a RHD?


edit: nevermind, it is...where is that thing? The turbo is not even positioned properly to be mounted, looks like joke or something.

holy crap thats retarded. the idea of it is badass, but when you think: supra's are a pain in the *** to get traction in as is, subtract from that like half the weight, and add like 3 times the horsepower = no traction in any gear ever unless on slicks

That will still roast slicks

But I guess if some is good, and more is better, than too much is just right.. or however that saying goes.

i dont understand the rationale behind this. Its much easier to make the same power and torque with a V8 swap, twin turbo if need be.

That Yella one looks like a Bullet roadster. Mind you that is not the one of the motors that Bullet normally offer.

That white one lookins like an Aussie MX-5. There is a local club member doing something similar with his. The problem with a V8 (and other forms of FI) is getting it on the road legally here in Aust. As soon as you replace/modify the ECU you are in violation of most states laws. A Nissan based engine in an MX-5, with standard ECU is easier to comply than a OEM engine with replacement/modified ECU. Yes you can get away without getting complied, but if you are caught you the car is taken off the road until compliance can be proven.

+1 on asking for more info. There's a local Supra with over 700 whp doing under 10 sec in the 1/4 mile. That thing must be insane! I mean, there's a forum member who's right now building a turboed V8 NB Miata but only for drag racing. That Miata on the other hand looks like it can be driven on a track!

Please Hustler, any more info?

Thanks
