BMW e39 with a Toyota Supra engine under the hood

http://speedhunters.com/archive/2009...om-jersey.aspx



The other day we got an email from our buddy Ernie Manasala at NOS Energy Drink. Seeing how it's BMW month, Ernie wanted to share a couple photos of some BMW's built by his older brother Mike at E-Shift Performance in New Jersey. As you'll note from the opening shot, these aren't quite your typical "Euro" Bimmers...

First is the stunning E39 M5 (a real one?!) that looks pretty normal on the outside...

...but under the hood is a Toyota 2JZGTE with a single turbo conversion. Shhh... I think you can hear the purists groaning.

If that wasn't enough, they've also built a matching E36 two door.

Like the E39, it also has a big turbine 2JZ under the hood. Both of the engine bays look immaculate!

Nice. What kind of power are they putting out? That E39 looks great.

thats badass. 2jz is a sick engine. that m5 is prob one of the best looking bmw's ever. it's a good combination. the swap must have been a pain in the ass. although i'd still probably take a souped up supra over that m5, that m5 is just plain awesome.

and wow, look at some of the comments from the dumb shits on that discussion board:

Quote:
That's so STUPID! Why would you take out the M5's already plenty powerful motor?!?! What's wrong with them? That is one of the best European cars of the 90s. Other great 90s Euros are the Mercedes 500E/E500, BMW E36 M3, Porsche 911, etc. Would you take the marvelously engineered engines out and swap in some Jap crap motor? You're disgracing the manufacturer by dropping these dumb ricer engines in them. It's an INSULT!!!
Quote:
Someone, anyone please enlighten a noob (me)! Are there any advantages in this conversion whatsoever?

The owner of a wheel company in Texas swapped a Supra engine into a '69 (?) Camaro years ago and then there's that D1 e92 in Japan.

Is there something to this conversion other than being different?
Quote:
LOL @ jap crap motor...........yea i gotta agree with Hotrodsforever, Supra engine is nice but it will never be in the same league with a 32valve V8 from BMW....pure sacrilege
what a bunch of dumb shits

That 2JZ-GTE is what, 20 years old now? Still amazing what it can handle!

Kinda weird in a Bimmer but nonetheless badass.

I love what they have done!

that motor trumps the s52 by a mile as well as the M5 v8.....the M5 v8 is however one hell of an engine.

2JZ is a simple formula:

Cast iron block originally designed for a diesel engine = strong as fuk
+
Inline 6 = perfect balance
+
Decent flowing head
+
Insane amounts of boost
=
ridiculous horsepower

dont forget extremely stout bottom end components and excellent build quality.

I knew someone with an E36 with 2JZ swap. That thing was a beast.

Johann A. Krause Maschinenfabrik GmbH had far more to do with assembly of the prototype 2JZ-GTE than they did with the actual design and development of the 2JZ-GTE. but that quick and detail-lacking fact from Wikipedia might just be enough to make the ignorant fools on that other forum believe that the 2JZ is actually a Bavarian built motor ...after all, they've made quite a few inaccurate assumptions already.

word to the wise - most entires on Wikipedia.com are misinformation to begin with, or lack too much detail to actually be accurate, useful information. anyone and everyone (including the misinformed) can add and edit information posted on Wiki. that is not to say that the particular bit of info you pointed out is inaccurate - its not. just be weary of what you read on Wiki...
