Default V8 engine swaps

How hard would it be to put a dodge 318 V8 into a 1985 celica supra?

Thumbs down

that could be about the dumbest engine swap i have ever heard of. why would you put a NON toyota engine in your supra? you wanna do a swap? do a 1JZ swap in. i think that could be the dumbest idea i've heard of in a long time.

Its not that hard if you can weld and fabricate..Youll have to make some new motor mounts and posibly new rear crossmember for the tranny..I dont think you can reuse the original tranny so youll have to get either a chrysler 727 to fit..And to answer the why do a V8 swap is dodge 318 average price $300 a good working 1 or 2JZ $1200 min..Anymore questions..Good luck on the swap man..

the 318 isnt bad and would definitely be nice to see in a supra. i'd say quite a bit off modifying and i'd worry most about the headers fitting once the motor is in.

are you guys insane? you want the guy to put a NON toyota engine in his supra? are you serious? no small block american motor could match the performance of the 1JZ GTE. with that being known and said, why still discuss this?

Angry

For one i want to see you get 600hp from a N/A Toyota motor..Cant be done but a small block V8 can... And two since there is going to be more room in front of the engine because there shorter he could put on a Vortech supercharger and get 800hp easy.. If he goes twin turbo You can just forget it and he will have spent probably half the price if not the same as you and still have more HP..Let him do what he wants thats why its called PERSONALIZATION...To bad if you dont like it so just STFU & GTFO!!

well my shrink says im not insane, so no. a non-toy motor makes some sense. i'd be better if she was a bit lighter. however, she does have an independant rear suspension, which makes for a very smooth ride. as for matching performance to a 1jzgte, its called the ls1. or you could do the ls2 if you've got spare cash.
