There’s A 2JZ Engine Swap Coming For New 2020 Toyota Supra

A tuning company out of California has announced that it will soon offer 2JZ engine swap packages for the fifth-generation Toyota Supra.

Prior to the launch of the 2020 Supra, Toyota itself said that its engine bay can fit the iconic 3.0-liter 2JZ of the previous-generation car. While we’re unsure of how much demand there will be for 2JZ-swapped A90 Supras, CX Racing has developed everything you need to make it happen.

A single teaser of the package has been published and it only happens to be a rendering since deliveries of the new Supra haven’t even commenced yet. Nevertheless, the image does show the twin-turbo 2JZ fitting snugly into the engine bay. CX Racing hasn’t said what supporting modifications will be included in the engine swap package.

The 2JZ, which in JDM twin-turbo form was rated at 276hp / 280PSm, and in North American and Euro-specification at up to 325hp / 330PS, is rightfully considered one of the best performance engines ever produced. It has long been a favorite for tuners around the world thanks to its immense strength and the power that can be extracted from it.

However, the engine is almost 30 years old and buying a new Supra just to replace its BMW-sourced B58 inline-six that has 335hp /340PS in factory form with a 2JZ seems quite daft.

It’s no secret that many diehard Supra fans were disappointed to hear about the new sports car using a BMW engine, claiming that it’s no longer a ‘real Supra.’ However, anyone with even the slightest knowledge of BMWs should know that it has a long and rich history of building perhaps the best straight-sixes known to man. The B58 also happens to be very strong and as Supra fans will soon discover, can be easily modified.

    As predictable as the tides themselves. I’m not surprised, there is a reason the 2JZ is so damn popular among tuners.

    I mean if you want to put cheap Taiwanese parts in a $50,000 plus car… I guess it’s cool. CX Racing’s parts are all cheap parts you’d put in a hooptie Miata.

      Now this I did not know. Interesting. Well its all over the carwebs, meaning if its nothing more than a publicity stunt, it worked.

    Forget the highly trained engineers with racing experience and master degrees, the kids putting bolt on mufflers really know what they’re doing!

    So probably going to double the cost with the new motor installed, GT-R is a better deal.

    Doing this is purely aesthetic…. to say hey look at me! It’s just as impressive as an LS swap…
    All in all, it’s just going to make the care more unreliable and heavier….
    And before the fast and furious fanboys flame me, yes, putting a 2jz into this bimmersupra would in fact make it less reliable.

    Cool idea. Amazing that 30 years later the Supra has no more power than before. The Z4 having significantly more power was a major disappointment, as we all now know there’s a more potent version of the very same engine already out there. Would love to see a proper Supra “R” or something, using the next “M” motor, if possible.

  • At this rate wouldn’t 2JZ supplies run out? I always wonder why Japanese manufacturer didn’t have turnkey engine like in US.

    Also this should shut the internet fanboys who thinks all Supra must use JZ (Clearly didn’t pay attention to Supra history).
