"Twist The Driveshaft Like A Drill Bit".... I'm gonna remember that one! One of my neighbors has a MKIV. Pure stock, Super Deep Red, neat as a pin, and he babies it. My MKII will never have that kind of power, but I still love it.
I have a 2JZ in a Mercedes SSK replica, and a throw-back to original would be a blower. An obstacle of significance is the electronics. Toyota does not make it easy. My son has replaced the 2JZ in his MKIII Supra with a 1UZ. The light weight four cam V8 fits well and a blower nests under the hood. Eagle rods are taco resistant.
