Anybody do or consider 2jz swap? 328ci 2000.

Been curious about how to get the MOST POWER for the LEAST WEIGHT and cheapest engine/maintenance and able to be daily driven
so a ls swap isnt gotta cut it, especially not with my creaky body! (Have major TLC first before engine swap) just curious what the best route would be, and not a drift car, just a daily street beast that can eat cops for fun!

If weight is a concern, why the 2JZ? it's heavy as hell - about 600lbs. Your engine is only like 350lbs. An LS1 is going to weigh less too.

How about an N54? Weight is close to what your stock engine is, and obviously way more power potential than a 328i.

You want high power, low weight, cheap/reliable, and daily drivable... good luck.
