The 2jz Powered ‘Cuda That Will Hurt Any Mopar Lovers Feelings
One of the wonderful things about the world of motorsports is that you never quite know about what you’re going to get. Sure, you can fall in love with the tried and true, but every once in a while, you get something that is so off the wall that you have to do a double take, digging into it to see exactly what it is that was done to the vehicle in order to make it the head turner that it has become as some of these machines require a lot of expertise to take them from their jumping off point and get them to a level that’s worthy of admiration.
In this one, we ride along to check out an old school Cuda unlike any that you’ve ever seen. Usually, it’s someone cramming an LS into something that’s upsetting purists but this time, the shoe is on the other foot as imported power meets an American frame with a 2jz being put to work.
This one certainly isn’t something that you see every day as the guys over at Boost Controlled Performance decided that they wanted to see what would happen when they came up with the idea of putting one of the most popular import powerplants of all time under the hood of one of the rarest muscle cars that you’ll come across. After putting their minds to work, it looks like they came up with something brilliant.
If you follow the video below, you’ll be able to learn a little bit about this super swapped beast that rocks down the drag strip as something that you would learn to fear on race day. Love it or hate it, you have to admit that this thing is worlds ahead of where it would be if it still had the factory powerplant under the hood. We’re loving every minute of it!
