10 Wildest Engine Swapped Feature Cars of 2015

From 2JZ and LS power to Volvo and other oddball motivations, this year we saw it all.

Dec 22, 2015

Brill Steel Nissan S14 200SX
The very essence of overkill, but we can’t help but love this thing – carbon fiber wide-bodied, 1,000hp LS3 V-8, and enough aero in the back to drive on the ceiling.

Turbo K24 Swapped Honda S2000
We like that this one stays within the Honda family AND goes for the stroker version of badass K-series engine lineup.

2JZ-Powered 1991 Nissan S13 Built to Destroy
There’s nothing like a well-engineered 240SX drift beater with a turbo Toyota inline-six under the hood.

1993 Mazda RX-7 - Rocket Bunny Widebody & LS-Powered
V-8s in FDs are nothing new, but executed cleanly – and with the Mazda’s exterior clad in version 2.0 of TRA Kyoto’s iconic wide-body – and you know you’re looking at some next-level customizing.

TF Works SR20-Powered Nissan 350Z - Midwest Track + Show Champ
Who swaps a 2.0L inline-4 into a sports car that came with a 3.5L V-6? Matt Eck had TF-Works do just that, and the result is one of the hottest time attack builds to come out of the American Midwest.

Rob Parson Chairslayer & His Hand-Controlled S13 240SX Drift Car
As much as Parson’s car will amaze you, his story of triumph over adversity will inspire you.

SR20 FD3S Mazda RX-7 - With Purpose
Going fast need not show allegiance to any one particular make – like ridding an FD3S RX-7 chassis of nearly everything Mazda, draping it in carbon-fiber, and fitting it with what its owner considers a more capable SR20VET.

2014 Subaru BRZ – JUN Auto Synergy V-8
The Synergy V-8 is essentially two Kawasaki 1,200cc four-cylinder motors mated together, capable of spinning to 11,600 rpm and plugging right into the ZN6/ZC6 chassis, retaining the factory six-speed transmission and full use of its electronics.

Miata-Powered 1987 Mazda RX-7 FC3S Built to Drift
This RX-7 still qualifies as a purist car since owner Pat Reynolds, being a former Miata drifter, decided to rebuild it and stick with the engine he knows best – the 1.6L B6ZE from the Miata.

1981 Toyota KE70 Corolla with a Volvo S70R Turbo Engine Swap
Roland Zetterstrom's Volvo-powered Corolla proves big power and a featherweight chassis are always big fun, no matter who builds it or where the parts came from.
