R129 motor swap

Really quick blurb at start of vid. Full build should be on a future " Hot Rod Garage " show.

Looks like a 2JZ swap into a R129 SL

Looking forward to see the episode, and I really like the one from the speedhunters,I think, article. But unless you have a 2jz sitting around, I dont really understand the swap.
Lots of aftermarket support, but nowhere near that of a ford or Chevy V motor, and you could could set a v8 or v6 further towards the firewall for room or weight for whatever your doing. Just my thinking before I decided to stay m104 in my r129, interested to see what they say.

Maybe even a race in the future? Hmmm...
