“It needs a 2JZ” was the collective comment echoed by many social media accounts upon the news that the new Toyota Supra would be powered by BMW. Seeking to satisfy this want, California-based tuning company CX Racing has teased a proposed engine swap.
Although both the 2JZ and the new 250 kW BMW B58 are both twin-turbo 3,0-litre straight-six engines, many JDM fans swear by the significantly older Toyota engine both in terms of its ability to manage massive (upgraded) power outputs, as well as its long-term reliability.
CX Racing hasn’t given any details as to what this "exchange" kit with feature but it looks as if it will be a plug-and-play system.
What do you think? Would such a swop be worth the effort in order to keep your Supra "pure"?
