    Default RX8 engine swap...

    salamz to all.... i own a rx8 2003 black... i've had it with the engine... i want to replace it with a 1jz or 2jz... i want to ask the experts on this one... will it do any structural damage as ADIL said in another rx8 engine swap topic? if not then what should i put in, a 1jz or 2jz? will the swap be successfull like will the car handle and run well... i know that jzs are like 50-100 kgs more in weight than a rotary... and in last... where can i find a jz engine? import or BILAL GUNJJ?? i would like MOD402 who is also making a swap in his rx8 to comment on his cars overall performance... thanks... zayed....

    straigt line results might be what you are looking for but on the track or should i say handling wise I wouldnt like it. Te beauty of the rx is in its halding. It can match upto a m3 on the track. But unfortunately in pakistan you dont get enough rons in fuel to make the engine last. I have seen an ls7 conversion in the rx7 it was nasty in a straight line but didnt fair well enough on the track though. for the 8 from the two j's i would vouch for the baby j as it revs quicker to what i experience though its bigger brother can put out nastier power. You wont find the engines in bilal ganj for sure try some other sources like @maxtorque here on the forums.

    ^^^some 1 going for a 2jz or 1jz is mainly looking for a straight speed

    i agree u both on this but how bad would it get... i've driven 350z's and they are like wild horses... a little more gas and they go wild skidding etc... i think 2jz will make the rx8 an exceptional car... if it fits ... hey yar can u tell me how reliable iz the swap... aisa to nahi keh har week i'll be visiting the mechanic? i knew this guy on pakwheels nick waz storm... is he still around? would love if he commented on the topic... rozzzz can u tell me the cost of that 2jz? and its milage? thanks... zayed...

    guys dont do that because piston engine has more vibrations and other factors plus engine to car weight ratio intially it will look great but afterward once ur front structure will start getting damage u ll listen lots f strange noises this car is made for this engine mostly used carbon fiber for max rotary engine weight t.Better get ur engine overhauled its a great one .I have a friend of mine who did tht now his wheel is useless
