Have a dilemma, buddy of mine is selling a 20k mile is300 for a great deal to me. Got too many old/projects so have to rid my self of one if pick it up make this move.
Car 1 91 mk3 with 60k miles 7m gte very original very light mods.
Car 2 87 targa 2jz-gte upgraded twins which I’ve had for 20 years but it’s a rust holes in rear wheel wells and on one fender. Issue #2 is it will never pass inspection in Cali to be legal so very hard to register it here.
Car 3 86 hardtop NA which was bought for parts but was thinking of swapping everything from my 87 to and sending it for paint. This is a lot of work since gotta swap interior and mechanicals.
Car 4 98 sc300 has been my dd with 100k miles but I have a fully built engine and phr turbo kit I had planned for this car with a 3.4 NA-t VVTI.
Help me decide what direction yes first world problems but I’m near 40 and own all old cars I want instead of new cars that aren’t raw and feel good.
Option 1 continue with swap to 86 NA
Option 2 steal engine and trans from 87 to swap into is300 eventually and part out 87.
Option 3 steal engine and trans from 87 to sc300 part out 87
Option 4 swap the 87’s 2jz to the 91 grey car who cares about too nice to mod. Make the is300 manual with the spare trans.
87 Canadian right (good paint)
86 hard top right (terrible paint but great California shell)
91 is Grey (too nice to swap imo was supposed to be the car for the swap)
98 sc300 ( getting a stroked engine and lots of goodies but still stock could sell and try to sell the turbo kit but like this car more than is300)
04 is300 nice little car makes about 320 whp on the super charger not fast but not bad
