• A 1968 Mustang convertible with a 2JZ swap and 730+ whp? Sure, why not?

      2JZ no shit... ok, ok, an old reference. Not as old as this Mustang though which is a 1968 model year convertible. The owner decided to do something different and he swapped in a Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE and built the motor with 10.0:1 compression pistons and forged internals.

      A PTE 6766 turbocharger goes on top with Pro EFI engine management and the result at 30 psi is 730 rwhp.

      Pair that kind of power with a fairly low 3000 pound curb weight and you get a monster of a car that can barely keep the rear end planted.

      There will be purists who hate this and it certainly has a bit of a 'Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift' feel to it (although that Mustang utilized an RB26DETT swap) but it certainly makes for a unique take on a classic Mustang.

        For the sake of being different he could have swapped the Ford Barra 4.0T engine and be both unique and purists-approved. To each their own though and definitely and clean execution.

        I agree with those of you who don't think that motor belongs under the hood but it's a great looking car and a great restore job.

        It’s a super clean build there is no denying that. To each his own I just don’t understand it, I respect the work that went into it that’s for sure.
        Also sticky got rid of the Silverado and got the Colorado zr2 for some off road fun.

        That's pretty cool. Make a damn thread on it!

        Everyone is buying new cars but nobody is sharing anything about them.
