The engine was installed using Xcessive Manufacturing’s FT86 to JZ motor mount kit. Boosting the engine’s power is a 67 mm Borg Warner S400SX turbocharger. No word on how much power the engine is producing but the fuel system was built to handle 2,000 horsepower. The rear end is a Ford 8.8″ with a Eaton Locker LSD.

All this work was to develop an engine swap kit. Their goal was to prove the 2JZ could fit in the FT86 engine bay without hacking your car up. Whenever the kit is released it will allow you to install a 2JZ without cutting any core supports.
