<font color='#000000'>i did not know were to put this in rumors or racing but i raced a 91 gt in my 86gts and to say the lest he slotered me i herd his turbo spit and i was left in the dust now for the rumor part he told me later he had the j-spec 1JZGTTE engine in his car now if im right that means its a 3rd gen supra in 5thgen celica is this even posibal to do due to the differnt drivetarane or is jull of it

well i do know hes got something do the the turbo but he killed a all-trac as well but he only races of the roll so i have not seen him burn out and he wont let people see is enginebay

has anyone seen the set up before and if they have how is it done besides the fact of the cost</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>I have no idea if that's possible or not, Jhull or Redswan will be able to let us know BUT if he won't let anyone see his engine bay then he's probably full of it.  To do a swap like that you'd wanna show it off.  If he only will race from a roll, then he might only have the stock 3sgte (since he def has turbo, you said you heard it) and nitrous, because in a lot of cars you can't spray till 2nd gear, hence the roll.  My 2 cents


EDIT:  Oh, just talked to Redswan and he said the 1JZ engine is for a JZ70 Supra, and when I asked if it could be swapped into a 5th gen celi he said "no way".  He also said that he could see someone doing it, but it would cost a LOT of $$$ cuz you also have to convert to RWD.
I asked another buddy of mine who has a supra and a car shop and he said no also.

So there... call that jerk on it!  He's probably just juiced it.</font>

<font color='#000000'>anything's possible, but putting the tt supra engine in your celi just isn't the most reasonable option for the regular folks.  whoever's done the conversion either had all the parts needed just sitting there, or had a lot of money to blow</font>

<font color='#000000'>Not that I believe the guy, but if he really did it, he would have waaaayyyy to much money to blow.</font>

<font color='#8D38C9'>Might as well just buy something that already has 500 ponies!  Unless you're a true diehard celi fan and want to do something no one else has done yet... but like I said, then you'd want to show it off.  Like the guy that put 8 cylinders and a turbo on his 5th gen...
no pics = no mods
 
To be able to burn an alltrac and to only be racing from a roll... I smell nitrous  :devil:</font>
