727-HP Subaru BRZ swapped to 2JZ-GTE goes on sale
This Subaru BRZ isn’t nearly stock, having traded its standard two-liter naturally aspirated mill for a Toyota Supra 2JZ-GTE boosted through the roof.
The legendary three-liter six-pot has been taken to 737 PS (727 hp / 542 kW) thanks to numerous mods, including a new turbo kit and ECU. The torque reaches 756 Nm, or 558 lb-ft.
Other noteworthy additions include a Nissan 370Z six-speed manual gearbox and a Lexus IS 300 rear differential. Certain suspension parts are also new, the ride height is lower, there are air intakes in the hood, new wheels and a modest-sized rear spoiler. Other than that, the exterior isn’t much different from stock.
The seven-year-old Subaru has only 37,600 kilometers (23,363 miles) on the odo.
The second-gen BRZ that Subaru unveiled last fall is not nearly as powerful, extracting mere 228 PS (225 hp / 168 kW) out of its 2.4-liter flat-four.
