Here is a company that has upgraded the 2JZ-GTE engine for a drag strip. It gives a good idea of what this fantastic engine can offer.

There are a lot of modifications one can do but remember never to try and be the fastest as this is not possible. You must look at it in the way of having a vehicle that will suit your needs. You can either build a fun daily driver car, a street car or a racer for the track. Don’t try and build a track car for every day driving as it will not be a pleasure to drive on a daily basis. A really good every day conversion for these cars is the 1UZ-FE VVT Lexus V8 engine or even the 3UZ-FE V8 Lexus engine from the GS430. These engines give a horse power of 300 and 224 KW at 5600 rpm with 441 N·m of torque at 3400 rpm .
