Nope not mine. Pretty sure I read it's pulling close to 1000hp. Mine is still in the parts sourcing stage. Buying the turbo and fuel set up in the next month or so, then looking for a healthy long block.

It's worth the swap just for the aesthetics of the zed vs the mk4, the Supra is pretty, the zed is drop dead gorgeous. Plus the Supra fanboys are worse than the r35 fanboys (of which I am a member).

I do prefer the look of the z over the supra, except for the interior tbh. Will be getting perso plates "2jzed" if available.

Dont mind me. I was just poking the bear

The Supra is one of those cars that you look at one day and go "mmmmmmm!" then the next day you go "hmmm???"

That said, they're ~$25K and climbing now for a good Turbo one.

I never pick the right horse.

Those 2 video's are different cars...colour, well that can be light subjective so we'll let that go, but the guards with that ridge in them, they aren't on the car in the second vid, and the bonnet itself isn't z32, too flat.

In the first video the 300zx with 2jz is in the left lane pulling away, camera car is an s2000.

Swear to god some of you didn't even watch the videos before commenting. Same car, all from the same channel-https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEkNcAxiNcsq4Z8K7A8YbFA

Same car, uploaded to a different channel. Watch the moron in the Porsche fail.

Yup, didn't watch the first one past a few seconds.

Anyway...we need more airstrip drags here.

I hate that, I start a vid then sit there thinking - am I going to regret watching the rest of this....... if I watch it the answer is invariably yes - if not I end up in the same situation as you did here. my normal reaction is to wait for a few responses then decide if i want to go to the hassel of the 5 minute wait to watch a vid like this here

Some guys in WA's notorious Antilag club started a really originally named airstrip drags event called "Race wars".

It's actually "taken off" (I am so sorry) and is pretty huge now.

https://racewars.com.au/

But yep. Was birthed as just another car club thing.
