I got the request for my “Top 10 engines for swapping into an S chassis. Preferably avoiding a V8, but I respect your choices” Well this is a fun one, except it’s hard to actually name 10 swaps that people actively do. But here is in my opinion the top 10′s for powering a S-chassis.
In no order. Toyota / Lexus 1UZ-FE: 4.0L V8 GM based LSX engine 4.8-7.0L V8 Toyota 2JZ-GTE 3.0L I6 Toyota 1JZ-GTE VVTI 2.5L I6 Nissan RB26DETT 2.6L I6 Nissan / Infinit VQ35DE 3.5L V6 Toyota / Lexus 2JZ-GE 3.0L I6 Nissan SR20DET 2.0L I4 Nissan CA18DET 1.8L I4 Nissan KA24DE 2.4L I4
As always these are in no particular order, Feel free to message me for suggestions as what to use for my next Top 10. I have 20,000 + Car pics on my Computer so i might as well use them for something
