car is getting its wires tucked, engine bay shaved that is why the primer is on. specs on the setup are kind of a secret. it is a special combo that makes everything fit like it belongs. this swap doesnt require cutting but it will be a little front heavy that way...i did opt to cut some bracing and modify the firewall enough to push the engine back an additional 3.5 inches. and due to the stripping/shaving/tucking of the entire front end the car is now lighter than stock and is very close to keeping its original weight distribution. i have deleted the abs and moved the battery to the rear also to help, i think i may have to put it back.lol

Very Nice! I like.

May need that ABS with that much crack. Also, why not put an S/C up on top and then add a big fat hood intake?

it has a tremec tko600 tranny in it.. not sure on the rear diff yet. leaning towards a viper rear diff or the nissan r200 or 230. definately keeping it irs though. shooting towards 450rwhp on motor. maybe some nitrous after that

also no cutting is needed. but....i did opt to cut some bracing and modify the firewall enough to push the engine back an additional 3.5 inches.

is it just me, or does this statement not make sense? nice work anyhow... sad to not see a japanese mill under the hood though... just my opinion.

hmm, is the tranny going to fit in the same place. I mean the shifter. Because that 2jz swap has the shifter in the cupholder. That would be awesome if it looked totally stock from the inside.

that is because the people that did the 2jz swaps didnt take the time to figure it out. my shifter will look completely stock. it is a very simple procedure to properly align a misaligned shifter. i have no idea why they didnt even try. mine is about 2 inches off but towards the front. an offset shift lever will be used to correct this.

im going to try and cram a 275/17 up front and a 315/35r17 under the rear on a 10 inch wide rim. depending on how much fabrication is involved i may vary the size. not sure on the rim style though
