Probably is one hell of a sleeper.
I think the most common engine conversion, amongst the tuner community
is the Supra engine.
Typically I see them cranking out (a claimed) 400-500 HP, if not more.



If it cost less, parts are easy to come by, and can crank out more HP,
I wouldn't care what engine went into my vehicle.

I always like car shows where they open up the hood and there is some monster of a twin turbo engine
cranking something outrageous in HP. No mater where it originated from.

My favorite video

BMW M 536 Turbo. 700+hp! VIDEO

When I lived in California I used delivery oil to a popular BMW mechanic/racer, Bill Arnold.
He built a nice sleeper for a customer. It was a 1990-ish 318i but with a 95 M3 engine in it.
Looked totally stock until you challenged him on the freeway and GOOD BYE !!!.

I'd like to see one of these in a W201.


Mitsu built enigne in a Dodge.

Or a turbo quad4. GM had one that had something like 800HP.
It probably would fit pretty easily too.

Aren't these transverse mounted engines?

I had a nice Alfa Romeo with a 3.0 V6, though unfortunately transverse mounted (FWD)
I like RWD better. No torque steer.

The solution is obvious! Rear engine, rear wheel drive.

That is pretty cool. I just like the idea of doing something that is rarely done these days. I remember seeing a FF/RR car, AWD with two engines and transmissions... Super cool stuff.

Yeah, they are transverse mounted. Although I'm sure that they(at least the quad4) can be set up to be RWD.

The Stealth R/T TT is 4 wheel drive. I'd like to see a 4wd 190!


This would be the untimate engine.

Wonder if this would beat an evoII..?

Because there is nothing but dirt roads for miles where I live,
I want to get one of these small 150cc trail buggies
and put a 'Busa engine in it

Had something like this before but just an older GS750 Suzuki engine

Bah, non MB engines in a Benz. COME ON.

To me, M103> 1jz Toyota engine and the M104>2jz Toyota engine. I wouldn't put a 2jz in when I could have an M104 in and yield same power outputs. The 2jz isn't all that.
