nice. Now super it.

I still like the idea of the 350 swap into my dads volvo 740 station wagon. Its easy to do, from what I hear. And at mission raceway there's a 740 w/ 350 thats runs in the low 13's.

I think its a sedan though :D.

no. . . you're talking about the UZ185. Thats a lexus 4.0 liter V8 TT in a RWD-converted alltrac

Eh. People have done this in RX7's all the time. The LT1 is a good motor.

I happen to know a guy who currently owns a NA mkiv supra. He plans on dropping the GS400 V8 motor into his Supra just to be unique. The amount of money would be the same as swapping in a 2jzgte. I guess he just wanted to be the first to do that. His license plate is V8OWNZU. I was surprised, thinking he had already done the swap. But I guess he hasn't done it yet.

For a 5.7L v8, I think it's a sluggish motor. But I've notice the LT1 has more "kick" during acceleration than the LS1. But the LT1 runs outta breath in the upper rpm range, whereas, the LS1 keeps pulling in the upper rpm range.

I'd rather see someone dropping a 1994+ supra turbo engine into an older supra.

Because the LT1 is designed for torque [long intake runners, ect.] and the LS1 is designed for road racing [hp].

Just like the late 80's TPI. It sucked for high rpms [didn't really have any anyways], but it had a decent amount of torque.
