[QUOTE=bradley;35588546]You're wrong again. The Camry supercharger WILL bolt onto the ES300, if you use the same generation of engine. The Camry and ES300 both got VVTi after 1998. Neither car had VVTi before 1999. The 1999+ 1MZ-FE with VVTi is the second generation 1MZ, nothing but the block is shared with the first generation 1MZ.[/QUOTE] no in 97 the 1mz lexus got vvt not vvti in 99 the lexus got vvt-i mine was a 97 es300, 96 woud work but after 97 it wouldnt i tried.
I know I'll probably get flamed but take a look at the LNF and LSJ Ecotec engines. They came in the Turbo Cobalt/Pontiac Solstice GXP/Saturn Sky Redline (LNF) and Supercharged Cobalt/Saturn Ion Redline (LSJ). They can put out pretty decent power without engine work. Some people put down 350+ on the LSJ without it going boom with NO reinforced rods/block/pistons.
Every modern Toyota engine had some form of VVT, until VVT-i. The Camry and Lexus 1MZ-FE pre-1998 are identical, save for the coilpack arrangement on a couple of models. A TRD 1MZ-FE supercharger will bolt to and work with any NON VVT-i 1MZ-FE, which means any 1MZ-FE built from 1998 back.
If I ever get a 67 Impala I'm putting an a 540 Chevy Big Block [video=youtube;5MEc06sSbr0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MEc06sSbr0&feature=related[/video]
460 Big block ford... I wish I could shoehorn one into my cobra without a TON of work.. other wise I would be enjoying actually have torque...
Once saw one of those early 50s Fords with a 500+ cid Cadillac engine in it, kind of ratty but really clean, like an old moonshiner car. It was at th--Holy shit the swap meet, that shit happens this weekend! ohfuckohfuckohfuckohfuck

Is that a Mitsubishi 380/Galant? I'm in one of those super curious moods right now and it's been bugging me.
Mitsubishi FTO.
[del]Mitsubishi 3000GT/FTO Dodge Steal--well, not a Dodge Stealth. The first gen FTO was the Stealth, they discontinued the Stealth right when the FTO got good looking.[/del] :v:

[IMG]http://i.imgur.com/wXq0T.jpg[/IMG] Here's my engine Not a big v8 pickup (sorry guys lol), but it does the job wait fuck i just realised! its missing the ECU cover (big plastic thing on left) since it was at the garage!!! >:(
ecu in the engine bay? interesting... I still prefer mine behind the dash
[QUOTE=ThermalArc;35769891]ecu in the engine bay? interesting... I still prefer mine behind the dash[/QUOTE] Dode Neon has the ECU in the bay, I remember this from all the Neon raceboxes we built. Good place for them, most of the cars we ran had the ECU in the floorboard and they'd get wet because the cars had no windows and we'd occasionally leave them out. We ended up relocating a lot of them. [editline]30th April 2012[/editline] Also CCE [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGH7CBc93gs[/media] I would love to have a CCE in my car.

Chaparral's 372 Chevy used in the 2D [img]http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-sChi9bxl5YA/TqSDk--j7UI/AAAAAAAAFJI/nPRdZ0kovYc/s1600/LF11_r130_04.jpg[/img] [img]http://dayerses.com/data_images/posts/chaparral-2d/chaparral-2d-01.jpg[/img] The engine in the pic sits in a 1958 Lister-Chevrolet “Knobbly” Sports Racing Car, but it was used in the 2D there. Powaaaaaaaa! Imagine dropping that in an old Pontiac or Buick beater. :v:
[QUOTE=sealpower;35572637]The b230F is a nice engine, not as easily modified as a b20 or b18, but way more...modern[/QUOTE] B230FT man also like the LT1 and LS1's.
Holy shit, I forgot that car existed. This older gentleman had one of those (The 2D) in my old town, it was black with white racing numbers.
Ford Modular Motor, really cool engine. My dad was telling me about a guy who made 2000 hp using a factory block (with everything elce obviously aftermarket) but from a factory block that's impressive, they don't even have that much displacement. Also the Chevy LSX/LS7 is a really good engine. The Dodge 2.0/2.2 is pretty reliable, I ran the rampage for an hour without coolant or any other sort of real fluid change after it sat for 2+ years and it hasn't shown any slowing down. Kind of dumb in hindsight but I was 14 at the time and all giddy to get driving. All the BBD and SBD are awesome engines but I wouldn't classify them as a fenominal engine, great power to boot and responds well to mods but the tech is quite old, still love them though.
