ADV.1 Wheels’ 1978 Datsun 280Z Has An 800 HP 2JZ

via Engine Swap Depot


ADV.1 Wheels recently unveiled their Project 2ADZ.1 at Festivals of Speed in Miami. The project involved taking a 1978 Datsun 280Z with a 3.4 L 2JZ-GTE and turning it from a quarter-mile monster into a street monster.


The swap was originally preformed by JDV323 (Youtube channel name) and using a C4 automatic transmission with the boost at maximum ran a 8.8 sec @ 162 mph (video embedded below). The engine can produce upwards of 1,000+ horsepower but has been de-tuned to 800 horsepower and 580 lb-ft of torque for street use.


The engine’s displacement was increased by the previous owner to 3.4 L on a balanced and blueprinted block. The engine build included Carrillo pistons, Brian Crower rods and cams, port and polished head, and a Garrett GT42GTX turbocharger.


The transmission was switched from a C4 automatic transmission used for drag racing to a Supra Getrag six-speed manual transmission with a HKS twin disk clutch.

ADV.1 includes more stats of the build including a very large gallery with 168 photos of the car before and after the transformation.

Like all the previous F&F films, Number 8…..

TX2K History

This annual gathering of horsepower-aholics began in 1999 in Houston with a few dozen cars attending. The first sponsor was MVP Motorsports (www.mvpmotorsports.com) and the event was actually named “The Supra Nationals” to celebrate Toyota’s iconic sports car and the main type of car that attended. Over the years the event has grown incredibly and now encompasses five days showcasing several events. If you like fast cars, then this is the event for you.

And a few from around the Internet:

Obsessing Over the Supra Search! AHHHHHH!

Have you done this?

The search for a MKIV Supra can be completely consuming.  I am looking for another low-mile Supra to put next to THIS ONE and it is completely consuming me.
Im checking the forums, eBay, classifieds sites – everywhere – about every 2 hours.
Have you been in this boat?

Have you totally obsessed over the search?
Why is it, when we’re ready to pull the trigger, that all the Supras that fit our criteria vanish?
Now that I’m seriously looking, I can’t find a single car that fits what I want.

Have you been totally consumed by the search to where it dominates your thoughts for the entire day?
Is it because the supply of cars that we’d be proud to own is diminishing??  Or are Supra lovers, by nature, obsessive and crazy? 🙂

I’d love to hear about your obsession in the comments or on the FACEBOOK PAGE

Please make me feel normal 🙂

Aron
