This article is a guide and summary of the work involved in swapping from a JDM 1998 Toyota Supra SZR to an RZ. Basically all steps involved in removing the 2JZGE and putting in a 2JZGTE VVTi, otherwise known as the NA-TT swap. For those that aren’t aware, the SZR came with the A02B torsen diff, 6 speed V161 and carbon fibre steering wheel, with my car it had only done around 50,000km (31,000miles) and was in great condition. At the time I did not have the budget for an RZ supra at my age and income, I came across a cheap 2JZGTE VVTi engine and thought this was the best opportunity to move to a TT, so I gave the conversion a go way back in 2006!

Toyota FT-1 Concept – 2nd Version Released

The 2nd version of the Toyota FT-1 concept car was released by Calty Design Center earlier in the week. It seems the only differences here is the Graphite exterior colour and re-done saddle leather interior. I’m bias as I love Grey, but damn it looks good!

I can only hope that they don’t change it too much, name it a Supra and release it into production within the next few years, come on Toyota!

Hopefully the partnership with BMW brings an I6 back, along with other chassis improvements but I’m hoping it’s not a hybrid 4cyl like some autosites have reported – only time will tell.
