i was thinking of buying a v6 camaro and doing the GN swap, but that has been done to death, then I thought it would be cool to do a supra motor swap, has anyone ever seen this, can it be done?

Someone posted once that the 2J is too wide. I find this hard to believe seeing as people can fit a twin turbo V8 in that car, but what do I know? If I were you, I'd spend a lot of time with a tape measure before you make any financial commitments to it.

Fitment aside, you're going to have a nightmare doing this. you'll need custom motor mounts, possible a custom adapter plate depending on the trans used, the wiring will be a nightmare and that's just the obvious stuff. Why not just buy a V8 Camaro to begin with and modify that? Sink the $10,000 into the V8 (you'll spend at least that much just getting the 2J installed and running, to say nothing of modding the thing) and you'll have a damn potent car.

Because I already have v8 camaro, and a ws6 I want to do this mostly for the hell of it NOT for the performance. it would be infinately cheaper to put in a 3.8 Turbo v6, but that snot what i want.
