For Sale or Trade - $28500. Nashville, TN. I have a 2001 S2000 with a 2JZ-GTE Toyota Supra Turbo motor swap. The car has 42k miles on it and the motor has about the same because it is a JDM 2JZ-GTE motor from Japan. There are only 3,000 miles on this build. The 2JZ has a single turbo conversion with a GT45 T88 turbo on it. The Supra Getrag 6 speed manual transmission is also mated to the 2JZ. This tranny will hold 1500hp! $28500

This is the 6th and latest 2JZ S2000 in the world. Here is a list of some mods:

JDM 2JZ-GTE Toyota Supra Turbo Motor

GT45 T88 Turbo

Single Turbo Conversion

Supra Getrag 6 Speed Manual Tranny

Comptech Rear Differential fully Cryo Treated for greater strength - This diff still needs to be broken in. I would go easy on it for the first 500 miles and change the diff fluid. After that you should be good to go.

HKS Wastegate

HKS SSQV Blow-off valve

TurboSmart manual boost controller

Aeromotive Fuel Pressure Regulator

Walboro Fuel Pump

Front Mount Intercooler

Steel braided coolant lines

Battery relocation kit - to the trunk

Short Shift kit

Solid Titanium Shifter Mounts

Sparco Shift Knob

ACT Clutch

ASA 17" Wheels

Greddy oil cap

Cobalt boost gauge

Cobalt water temp gauge

Autometer Carbon Fiber Ultra-Lite Speedometer

Pillar mounted gauges

AFC Neo

Custom Turbo-back exhaust

Brand new Convertible Top

New bearings

Greddy Boost Cut Control (BCC)

Many hours worth of polishing under the hood

Titan Cam Gears

New NGK spark plugs

New Timing Belt

New Water Pump

Recent Alignment and Balance

I'm sure there are some things I missed, but you get the point. This car is an absolute beast. Even with the motor swap, the S2000 only weighs in at ~2900lbs. I have already changed the oil and filter 3 times in 3,000 miles to ensure complete and proper break-in. The first change was with Castrol motor oil. The last two I used Mobil 1 10w30.

The car does not have a center console cover. I was planning on getting a custom one made to fit the Getrag 6-speed, but it does not bother me to just have the carpeted console. The stock speedometer and rpm gauge does not work due to the engine swap - the stock sensors are calibrated for a 4 cylinder not a 6. I use the AFC Neo as a digital RPM gauge (more accurate) and the Autometer Carbon Fiber speedometer. The electronic power steering in the car is disconnected. It can be hooked up, but I would advise against this because the steering ratio is very quick. This can be dangerous at high speed. With the power steering disconnected, the car is very stable at high speeds. There is a door ding on the passenger door panel. I'll try to get some pictures posted of this, but it is just your typical ding.

This car is an absolute Beast. It will break traction at 60mph under boost! Currently, the car is only tuned to 15 lbs. of boost on pump gas (extremely conservative for a 2JZ). With 25 lbs. of boost and some race gas, the 2JZ S2K will be unmanageable unless you get some Drag Radials.

I have well over $20,000 in parts and labor invested in this S2000. My loss, your gain. I've only put 3k miles on the car since it was completed in July 2007. The car is located in Nashville, TN. If you have any further questions, please call me on my cell phone (512-771-2528). Anyone is welcome to come check the car out in person. I will be happy to give you a ride in it. Here are some pictures of my car:











































Here is a quick video of my car. This is a 50mph-150mph pull starting in 3rd gear. I am short shifting in every gear at ~6300rpm (rev limit is stock @ 6800rpm) except for 3rd when you can hear me hit the rev limiter. At about 140mph I let off considerably and kind of coasted to 150mph before completely shutting it down. Sorry about the poor quality. Turn your speakers up!

This is another video I made before the car was tuned:

Here is a link to my Ebay auction:

I also have pictures of the build. These will be given to the buyer. For any further questions, you can call me at: 512-771-2528 (cell)

Those Supra motors are no joke; I've driven Lambo's, Ferraris, etc...., but there's nothing like the intense G-force of a single turbo Supra; pretty scary.

very nice work, looks terrif.

I met a guy w/single-turbo at a drag strip (while racing my elan). His car ran in the 10s and it weighed over 3300 lbs.

With mild mods (using aquarium & plumbing supplies) my tt was a beast.

Crap, I'd give you $10 just for a ride.

I don't know about weight distribution, but really, car looks v good.

I'd like to see some pics of the interior.
Click on my ebay link at the bottom of my initial post. There are some interior pictures there. Interior is in really good shape minus the missing console cover. I still need to get a custom cover made to fit the Supra getrag 6 speed.

Wow, this car would be fun! Nice pics too.

I can't believe no one else has asked, any idea of the HP #s?
Thanks! The car is limited on fuel right now because it is still on the stock injectors. It put down 462 rwhp/411rwtq on a Mustang Dyno (low reading) at 15lbs. of boost. Obviously this is nothing for a 2JZ. If I were going to keep the car, my next mod would be 1000cc injectors. I could then run 25lbs. safely with some C16. It should put down some good numbers at that point. I think the car is fast enough as is. The S2000 easily outruns cars that put down much more power. I put 2 bus lengths on my friend's 496whp Z06 from 50-120mph. I also slowly walked a 570whp Cobra and my Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. With some bigger injectors and some more boost, this thing is going to be crazy.

:rolleyes: Wow what a lame-ass. I love it when forum people start talking **** about people and cars they know nothing about. This car does exactly what I built it for - dominating the highway. I also had an '05 S2000 prepped for autocross/track days.

Ruining the car's resale? Who the hell mods a car thinking they are going to make their money back with the mods? I am losing a lot of money selling this thing for the price I have listed, but I knew that before I started modding it. I did it because I wanted to - plain and simple.

Oh and btw I don't get loans to buy my toys or use credit cards to mod them. This car was bought straight up along with all the mods I have in it. I owe nothing on the car or the mods. Title is in hand. I doubt you can say the same about your car, so next time just STFU.

I agree with Neil,

Sweet car man! I have heard it before "why did you build that?" and the answer is always "because I can" or "because it was fun"

Dont listen to the haters. You will find a buyer. There are many ppl out there that appreciate things like this.

All drama aside, I saw the pics on ebay. They are tiny. You have shown us the good. I want to see the bad.
As I said, the interior of the car is in really good condition. The pics on ebay I added after my auction had already begun when someone requested to see pics. I have stated all the "bad" in my description - no center console cover, tacky speedo on dash, no power steering (can be connected), dime size door ding (pic on my ebay ad), etc.... :shrug:

Best response ever.

xpcarguy: That was totally uncalled for. Are you tired of people making the same assumptions about you since you have a Lotus and needed to take it out on someone else? Don't kid yourself, that post was more hypocritical then you may have thought.

Then why are you selling it 3,000 miles later. You say I know nothing about you or your car. I actually do. You put 39,000 miles on your car. You had it in the shop for who knows how long. Then you finished with it and almost immediately want to sell it. You can talk all day about how good you are with money but the content of your post says otherwise.

You want to brag about your pinkslips. :rolleyes:

PS: You shouldn't have gotten so offended. You would do better trying to assuage a potential buyer's skepticism by addressing the issues I pointed out in public. It seems fishy to me.

And as I pointed out in replies to others in this thread, I actually came across that "priceless" realization that many mods cause more problems than they're worth and turn out to be a waste of money. And car mods are almost never recoverable when you sell it. Car mods almost always drive the price down not up.

I'm not bagging on him. I drive an S2000 right now too. No snobbery going on here. And Supras are The Sh**. But there is likely something wrong with this upgrade. He probably spent more time doing the upgrade than actually driving it afterwards.
