was kinda considering some kinda honda engine because they're messed up... but my first project is to get it looking somewhat [url=http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1160392?p=34987885&viewfull=1#post34987885]roadworthy[/url]
[QUOTE=Ferosso;34980997]Welcome to Denmark, should I take your credit card and fuck you in your ass?[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=teslacoil;34980953]Denmark: Taxland Electric Boogaloo.[/QUOTE] You two should move out then. I can't imagine what sort of backwards logic Denmark's government used to outlaw engine swaps, but it sounds like hell on earth to me. Maybe I'm a bit spoiled though, I live in the land where the right to put a V8 in anything with four wheels is more secure than the right to basic healthcare. :v:[QUOTE=Psygo;34986262]a 2JZ is a bit big for the AE86 I believe...[/QUOTE] I've seen 427ci Chev big blocks stuffed into Fieros, LS9s in Miatas, a fucking Rolls Royce Merlin in a '57 Chevy. Gearheads do not let common physics contraints prevent the installation of their desired engine in their desired car, they WILL find a way to fit impractically large engines in tiny cars. If it was my AE86 I wouldn't do a 2JZ though. Too many people use them in imports. I'd either use a Turbo II 2.2L Dodge I4, a turbocharged Ford 2300 I4 from an SVO Mustang, or perhaps an LS9 V8 if I want to be a blasphemous son-of-a-bitch that can create smokescreens on command with their right foot.
I've been considering moving to sweden... but then I might not even be able to afford driving the AE86, considering I'd have to live by myself. also I love the 2JZ, don't care if it's common, it has a reaaaally nice sound, and it can be built reaaaally fast.
the quest begins for a "fuck the polar bears" bumper sticker and or some variant of that

Not sure about insurance though, and Europe does some strange shit with regards to that. [quote]also I love the 2JZ, don't care if it's common, it has a reaaaally nice sound, and it can be built reaaaally fast.[/QUOTE] Some of them sound nice. Some of them can't be heard over the racket of the helicopter engine some people insist on strapping onto them. I will admit that V8 swaps are just as commonplace, though.
maybe "you keep the polar ice caps, I'll keep the big block" or "how bout them ice caps" for right over the exaust [editline]4th March 2012[/editline] automerge y u
My uncle got a new car. It's the R/T version. [img]http://puu.sh/jqYC[/img] Big improvement from his 2001 Cherokee with the V8 the he did burnouts from stop lights in.

28MPG is great mileage, lol.
wat... no it isn't... not anywhere near great. I'm quite sure it's way lower than the danish average.
[QUOTE=Psygo;34992862]wat... no it isn't... not anywhere near great. I'm quite sure it's way lower than the danish average.[/QUOTE] I suppose if everyone drives little economical sedans/hatches. But for anything fun to drive, 28MPG is generally great mileage. Hell, my 4 banger truck got like 18-19mpg.
So this is playing out too good. So my 88' is now completely fucked. My front brakes are completely shot and today when we tried to replace them, we found out that all of my wheels are seized on. So, no new brakes, or new wheels. Good-bye car! So now I have my parents willing to pitch in some money for me to buy another car. Looks like I'll be getting either a Tahoe, Explorer, or Expedition. Fuck yea!
[QUOTE=Psygo;34992862]wat... no it isn't... not anywhere near great. I'm quite sure it's way lower than the danish average.[/QUOTE] lol, it's wonderful mileage. Most cars get around 20-25 combined, and any that I can actually drive get between 16 and 18. 28MPG is economy car territory. Low end, admittedly, but still economy car territory. You're only going to do better with some dull little supermini with a gokart engine in it, or a motorcycle.
for a sporty car i suppose it is pretty good, but all other cars around here get way better. I'm not in america remember, we all drive crappy little 1.0-3.0s here...
Well, if you want, you can ship your AE86 to me and I'll take over feeding it's horrifically gas guzzling engine. :v:
I got 22-24 in my CRX Si. :| Don't complain about 28
who knows... it might not even get those 28... that's just what they were supposed to be doing back in the day... or something around there. [editline]4th March 2012[/editline] plus i'm not really complaining, rather I'm saying I can't actually afford it all if I had to move.
You guys seem to be forgetting the gas prices there. In Oslo, it's around $9.28 a Gallon.
This is true.

So at nearly $10 a gallon, 28mpg would be like driving a Full size pickup. Doable, but you should probably be looking for a DD Econo car?
14-15L/100km supra yayyyy D:
not sure how that equates to MPG, but my rex was making 13 off the showroom floor in '87. I figure I'm probably getting somewhere around 11-10 now. I guess it's still an improvement over the 5 i was getting in my 77 Chevy :P
Anyone want to buy a Ford 5L V8 engine? It comes with the car too! You can drive it home! All yours for 700$

[QUOTE=Del91;34993584]So at nearly $10 a gallon, 28mpg would be like driving a Full size pickup.

[editline]4th March 2012[/editline] but yeah, I think gas prices in norway and denmark are pretty much the same, 14,5NOK or so right? and it's sitting at around 13DKK as of right now.
Gas here in Norway is about 15 NOK now
Gas here is $3.09 :v: Supposed to go up to $5 this summer. I have a feeling that I'll be seeing a lot less gas guzzlers soon...
