    hey, i was wondering what would be a good engine to fit into the tC engine bay without having to grind or modify it. i'm not arguing how much it's going to cost or anything. but just some choices that would be good
    Most likely, that's the only way to swap motors is to custom build the engine mounts, It's not that popular that aftermarket companys are making engine swap kits like honda and nissan do. So I'm gonna say that it would be a huge undertaking to swap a motor, size won't be an issue becusse there's all ready a 2.5L under the hood which is a pretty good size motor. If you were going to take the time to swap you can put anything you want because it will all be the same amount of work.

    The 2AZ is 2.4L. Im guessing just a typo since your a genius...But yea he's right. You'd need to do a lot of custom fabricating in order to get the engine mounts to line up right.
    2jz SUPRA man...ahhahahah no jk idont think it fit but will be nice


    Do like this guy did and put an LS1 engine from a Corvette inside your tC, haha. He put it in his Civic, or should I say his Civette
    isnt someone installing the v6 from a camry? i forgot who it was but yea. and someone from LA i heard is attempting to put in a 3sgte (which are money grubbing engines cuz in my mr2 everytime i fixed something, another thing would break) i believe it would just be better to invest in building the 2az rather than a swap

    other than that, if you were lookin for mad power, a 2jz would require plenty of money and a longer or one piece front end. but you would haul ass with a rwd tC

    Haha yeah typo... guess I was a typing a little to fast,

    There are so many options as far as custom swaps.. because they're just that, custom. So as long as your pockets are bottomless you can go for whatever you can dream up.
    so did that V6 engine ever get into the TC? If so I want to see it

    He is still working on it. The last he said was he was having problems with the clutch/flywheel, needed a motor mount fabbed and fuel set up finished but other then that it was ready.
