Craigslist Find: 8-Second Fox Body Mustang With Supra 2JZ Swap

Though the home of the muscle car is without a doubt America, other countries have developed their own versions of high-performance, rear-wheel drive coupes. One of the best examples comes from high-tech Japan, which launched the Supra as its own model right around the time the Fox body Mustang was hitting the streets. And believe it or not, that turbocharged inline-six made way more power that was on par with the 5.0 V8 of the Mustang.

So seeing a Supra engine in a Fox-body Mustang sort of makes sense. We stumbled across this unique creation on Craigslist, and the seller Bill Ramon claims that in addition to 900 horsepower at the press of a button, this Supra-powered Mustang drives like a normal car.

The Toyota 2JZ-GTE engine is impressive for both its reliability and performance potential. This particular engine has been upgraded from two small turbos to one large one, giving it a claimed output of 900 horsepower. Bill claims this Supra-Stang has gone an 8.92 @ 149 mph in the quarter-mile with a 75 shot of nitrous (9.29 @ 145 boost only), while in the same paragraph claimed he can get up to 21 mpg, thanks to the low compression and small displacement.

Everything works in this race car with street car credentials, including the headlights, fuel gauge, and full stereo system. Backing up the Supra motor is a beefed up TH400 transmission, there’s a full race suspension, and everything else you need for a day at the track. The asking price appears to be around $22,000, a veritable bargain for a Mustang this customized. Is this a cool engine swap, or does this Mustang still need a V8 upgrade?
