I hear ya. The 2JZ is an amazing powerplant but way overpriced and far too popular for its own good. Of course this probably affects 1JZ pricing, which at the moment, from most of the prices I've seen, is a smoking deal as far as performance potential, if you're handy with tools and a soldering iron.Joe-Turbo said:i just say that cause most of people don't know squat about the mkiii and they assume the 2j is god's gift to cars. its different if you've researched the project and decided that you wanna spend all that money and labor just to be stock even at 320hp. you've probably been dealin with supras for quite a good while and know a lot about it so you know what to expect.
My animosity just comes from people becoming slaves to the MKIV and the 2jz. its an amazing car but most people look down on the MKIII just cause its not a 2j cause when they hear supra they see MKIV, 2f2f and other assorted media blowups of the car.
