Mustang Receives Heart of a Supra with CA Legal 2JZ Swap
It’s not necessarily any secret. When it comes to living life in California for a car enthusiast, it’s hard. No stone is left unturned in the pursuit of smog reduction. Sometimes, it makes sense, other times, we can’t help but scratch our heads.
Unless someone goes out there and purchases a factory performance machine, no fun is to be had. Even some factory machines don’t meet all of the state’s regulations. As one could imagine, there are plenty of people who don’t necessarily cross their T’s and dot their I’s when it comes to modificiation. However, there is a completely legal area for modification to exist under California state law. It might be difficult to accomplish, but finding a legally modified car in California can be done!
As the video below mentions, there is certainly a lot to be done in order to make this thing legal in the state of California. In many swaps, all of the extra emissions equipment is simply be left out. However, this time, we get to see exactly the opposite. This enthusiast has gone the extra mile to make sure that his Mustang is compliant with every rule and regulation. He isn’t letting California vehicle law bring him down!
The One Take video from The Smoking Tire below brings us a unique opportunity. We get to watch as the Mustang is thrown through the corners in the hills, stretching out the legs on this thing that actually ends up being just a little bit awkward at first. We have to admit, it takes a minute to get used to the sound of a 2JZ hissing from under the hood of the most iconic pony car of all time. – trd_pony
When it all comes together, though, it’s hard to resist the combination.
