Tweeder are we reading thr same thread???
"14psi or 400whp is the absolute max. Anything over that the connecting rods become time bombs same goes for the ringlands for the pistons."


LOL at the both of you. Cant argue with faxts
Point taken. So what you're saying is rods/pistons/oil squirters and it can handle 2jz-gte power?

I have very much respect for the Honda F series engines. I think there's people running 700whp on the stock unopened longblock? I might be mistaken, maybe it has a different headgasket. Either way, those motors can take some serious power. The rear diff on the other hand .

mk3 toyota supra (have found mulitiple, very clean 1jz/2jz swap cars in my price range)
300zx TT
1jz/2jz swapped sc300 (same with supra, found mulitple for my price range)
3000gt vr4/stealth TT
Possibly a 2nd gen GSX, don't really want another DSM
B5 s4?
High mileage AP1 s2000
e36 M3
LS1 camaro
99-01 SVT cobra
96-98 cobra
Since you mentioned a swapped SC300, what about a RB26 swapped 300ZX? I remember reading an article awhile ago that said it pretty much bolts to the 300zx transmission. I also see a lot of LS engine swap threads for the 300zx on other forums.

The S2000 sounds good on paper, but I think it would be to small for me to drive on a regular basis. If you are a smaller person, it may not bother you as much.

The LS1 Trans Am that I drove was pretty fun, but only because of the engine. The overall experience was similar to driving a late 90's american truck that had been lowered. I would buy a GTO over a Trans Am or Camaro for the slightly improved interior, and better overall image. The GTO can be found right around LS1 Camaro prices now.

I had an E46 328I. It was a pretty nice car, but it was never overly exciting to drive. An M3 could be a whole different animal, but I have not been in one. The basic 3 series is a good DD, but is kind of boring as a weekend car in stock form.

Yes but at that rate you might as well goto the junk yard and get yourself a non vvti 2jzge and make power until it blows. Oil squirters are useless. Most builds are high compression and e85. Look up trc 2jz 240sx 800whp stock imternals thank you sir.

Miata or S2K - I prefer the S2K.

What about a Porsche boxer from around 99 or 2000. Parts are expensive and a little bit more maintenance but its a good car. Not as girly as the Miata, nicer than the 2SK, but a bit more work.

Porsche is a great weekend car, makes it affordable. DD - thats where it can get expensive.

I'd look into the Camaro, maybe even a nice C5 Corvette. One of my weekend cars and drag strip car is a 2010 Camaro. I'm making 850rwhp on the stock bottom end and its been that way for some time and quite a few passes. You can make some seriously reliable power out of the LSx series motors.
